On Being 28 and Grateful.

Wait I’m 28? How come? I can’t still fathom how I’m 2 years away from being 30. It’s a strange feeling knowing I’m getting older since I swear every year for the last 10 years I don’t feel like I aged one bit haha. And yes I know with this new age comes a lot of responsibility.

Here’s a photo dump of how I’ve celebrated my 28th Birthday.

We booked a room at Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf and got unlimited ride to this Gondola.

I had my favorite baby back ribs for lunch.

We also got free passes to Wild Wadi.

We had dinner at Ralph’s Aunt place cos it’s also his nephew’s birthday – ADI. We’re so much alike in so many ways: both smart and stubborn.

 

It was one of the best birthday celebrations I’ve had in a long time.  It reminds me of my childhood birthdays when we had barely anything to eat everyday but my mom would buy me cake and papa would buy ulo ng lechon just for my birthday then the whole family will share it over dinner.It was simple yet unforgettable. For me, this is how birthdays should be. It shouldn’t have to lavish, but should be memorable.

I am truly grateful for this year cos I know I’ve been trying to improve myself (and still does) and I’m learning a lot of things like saving money and trying not to spend a lot for unnecessary things. Also, I’ve learned how to be patient and to be more accepting. I’m super grateful for all the blessings and love I’m getting and I just hope and pray that God will help me keep my feet on the ground. Looking forward to what’s in store for me this year!
