Pascual Laboratories, Inc | KPub BBQ Trinoma
I turned 27 today 🙂 I love birthdays but I hate getting (and looking!!!) old T__T Haha. Birthdays will always be a big deal to me, always have, always will. 😀 I don’t think that’s a bad thing because every day of every year is a blessing 🙂
I woke up early and decided to attend the Holy Mass with my parents. Happy birthday, Mama Mary! ❤︎ It’s still amusing when people react, “Ah kaya pala Marianne“ as soon as they find out that I share the same birthday with Mama Mary. Heee. I love my name.
Funny how I was wearing a casual dress for mass and changed into my uniform for the day. Sorry but I didn’t feel like wearing this the whole day because it’s my birthday and I’m petty. I changed clothes again before I even step out of the office, lol.
It was an ordinary day and I had work. But being the feelingera that I am, I know deep down that SCM prepared a surprise, HAHA! We always do it for the others anyway, so it isn’t much of a surprise if you ask me. Anyhow, I’m still so happy! ❤︎ Thank you for the cake and the love, dear officemates 🙂
Had another Gardenia / Cheese / Kopiko / Cake party! LOL. I love my cake, but I really don’t remember when and where they got this picture! They said it was a group picture and they cropped me out but I still don’t remember hahaha. Oh well. I am old and I forget things, I’m sorry.
One of my officemates, who I sometimes call Daddy (he said I looked like one of his daughters! Which is kind of true because we have the same eyes :P) gave me this. I let out a loud AWWWW when he handed it to me. It was so sweet! ❤︎ We had a picture together but he asked me not to post it (because you know, there’s a Dad message lol) because he’s married with kids. People might misinterpret. Plus, it would look like he had a kid when he was just about ten years old. HAHAHA. But I’m very thankful. Such a sweet gesture from you, Daddy!
Since my birthday last year, aka my KPop / KDrama year, I learned to love Korean food as well. TriNoma had a lot of Japanese restaurants but very few Korean ones. I had no choice but go to KPub again. Either that, or Bon Chon 😛 In the mood for live music, too. It wasn’t a bad choice at all but I wish there were more restaurants to choose from! Originally, I wanted to eat in a Korean restaurant somewhere in Tomas Morato but traffic keeps on getting worse and parking is difficult. So yep, TriNoma it is!
Well, well, well, look who I saw! 😀
I celebrated my birthday here last year so I know how it goes. Coco (as in Coco Martin look-alike!) is still here and their dance number is still as cute as ever. Heee. Oh, one of our singers tonight is Panky from Pinoy Dream Academy! I vividly remember her voice!
He’s not bored, it’s just his default facial expression. I secretly took a candid picture of Papa, and they were both wearing the same expression. Ha! I guess it’s true that you fall for someone similar to your father? Haha.
Every year, I celebrate with my family + a group of friends 🙂 This time, I invited my high school roommates. I realized that even though we’ve known each other since we’re kids (and I mean, since we were born because two of them are my neighbors and the other one is an elementary classmate!), I haven’t celebrated my birthday with them in recent years. So happy we’re complete despite their busy schedule! 🙂
Shine shine shine. LOL. I’ve always wanted to try Soju for that Ultimate Korean Food experience. Not bad! It’s actually sweet and not as strong as I imagined. Tho after five shots, I felt a little tipsy. I slept all day the next day, haha.
Whoever took these pictures didn’t even tell me that we were barely recognizeable! Huhu, that sucks because we’re complete. Oh well. 😀
LOL at my shoes 😛 Maybe they all thought that I am the most kikay out of all the four of us, but this picture proved that in fact, I’m not. I don’t understand why people still think I’m dainty when I’ve always been a sneakers/casual dress kind of girl? Haha.
Anyway, overall, it’s a fun day ❤︎ I got to be with my family, with Marvin, and my oldest (and prettiest) friends 🙂 Also, gifts!!! Yep, twenty-seven and still shallow as hell. 😛
Thank You, Lord, for another year~! 🙂
