My 19th Birthday!

Last week, on the tenth of February, I finally turned 19. It was such a bittersweet feeling because this would be my last year where I’d have a “1” at the beginning of my age. I’m starting to feel my age catch up to me – before I know it, I’ll be 20 already (which feels really weird since I feel like I’m 17, I probably look 16, but I’m already 19?!)

My cute (and really delicious) birthday cake baked by my aunt! (Thank you, Diko!)

On my actual birthdate, I didn’t really do much but stay at home and have a quiet day with my family. We had the cliché Filipino birthday party food of spaghetti and fried chicken (courtesy of Amber’s HAHA).

On the 11th, I met up with my best friends for dinner. My parents and I decided to hold my quiet birthday dinner at bhotel’s Lobby Café and we had a blast!

L-R: Me, Courtney, Chiara, Stacy, and Nicole!

We were the only ones eating at that time, so we had the full attention of the waiters and the live performance (I even requested for a song) – the food was delicious, the music was relaxing, the service was amazing, and the company I was with was top-notch.

After a not-so-quiet dinner at the Lobby Café, we moved on to Mrs. Graham’s Macaron Café for desserts.

This is what we ordered: 1 slice of the Hershey’s Chocolate Crepe Cake (for Stacy) and 4 orders of Butterbeer Milkshakes (for everyone else).

’twas good for us girls with sweet tooths! 😍
The whole gang!
Chiara, Stacy, and me!

There’s nothing nicer than spending a “quiet” evening with your best friends. Thank you guys for coming! 💖

The next day, I met up with my extended family and we had a lovely lunch at Xin Tian Di. We all had a great time eating and catching up and I bought myself a little birthday treat: a new Snoopy car! (I’ve been collecting these for a long time.)

(I got the Valentine’s Day Snoopy car hehe.)


Thank you, family and friends, for making my 19th birthday memorable! I love you all.
