Turning 30 is quite a big deal for me. Mostly, because I never expected for 30 to feel this young. I mean I can't be 30 yet, can I? (See still in denial? Jejeje.) But I just have to blog how fabulous it was my passing of the decade. If I look back, the most significant thing was that I formed some pretty kick-ass relationships. With my family, colleagues, my team, friends and extended relatives. Now I know why I feel this young.
I didn't have time to arrange or edit the pictures so let's just look at them as they happened in chronological order. How I turned 30 at the office. Then I turned 30 again in The Farm at San Benito. And for the 3rd time, I turned 30 again with my family.
|Because my colleagues are sweet, they got me a sweet cake|
(My favorite promise: Mango Bravo = calories galore)
|Because my Team is even sweeter|
they gave me Harry Potter complete DVD series.
I almost fainted with happiness I tell you!
(Obvious naman sa picture how happy I was right?)
|Because our stomach was growling we stopped over|
at Hapag, Filipino Restaurant.
They served us giant tilapia and Bulalo
that could feed an entire basketball team
|The Farm's welcome fruit.|
It has mangosteen which made me overjoyed.
|The ornate door entrance plus the "fatty" me.|
|Of course, you know how I like to plan and organize stuff|
so I planned our entire stay.
(Complete with logistics and schedules.)
|Our little cute hut.|
The little door at the side leads to the banyo.
|This was the snacks during the afternoon high tea.|
|So many infinity pools there.|
We didn't swim though because we are very sawa na sa pool.
Yabang namen! Sorry na!
|My husband's attempt at wildlife photograpy.|
National Geographic series part 1
|Out attempt at a candid shot.|
Parang di ko bet.
|National Geograhic series part 2.|
|That's me reading the book:|
"Greatest Speeches that Changed the World."
Serenity. Peace. Yun na.
|The secret lagoon |
(which is really not so secret).
|National Geographic series part 3.|
(Andami kong pictures ng flowers promise!)
|This is me, after our Purifying Treatment.|
See my glowing skin?
See my frozen half dazed look?
I loved the treatment.
|Salad for dinner: Me.|
|Puttanesca for dinner: Hubby.|
|They gave me birthday cake. Sweet.|
|Closer shot of the cake|
|Breakfast: fruit plate|
|Breakfast: frest fruit salad with yoghurt dressing.|
|Breakfast: Cereals with coconut milk|
|Breakfast: Tofu omelette (soooo yummy!)|
|Breakfast: Cocoa pancakes|
|Literal na green tea |

|Wala lang. Hehe.|
|Day off shot part 2|
|We had this nung pauwi na.|
This Liam's lomi. One of the best tasting lomis I've tasted.
So. Worth. Every. Calorie. =)
|Then I had a small party with family. |
Where I served buffalo wings and chilli dog. Hehe.
|My "lusis" candle|
|My cake is very me.|
|The best birthday gift of all.|
Elijah learned how to walk just in time before
I turned 30.
I love you anak.
Ang pogi mo. Manang mana ka sa tatay mo. =)
There. Now when Eli asks how I turned 30, all I have to do is to show this blog. If blogs still exists in 2030. Wait, I'm getting ahead of myself again.
