This entry I wrote while I was in Dubai but failed to post it. I am posting it now before my memory fails me.
It was my first time to celebrate my birthday away from everyone that matters to me. I had birthday blues a week before the actual day. As it turns out, I had four mini-celebrations filled with surprises.
The first celebration. Sofitel Corniche Abu Dhabi, 5 July 2014.
I was gifted with an overnight stay at Sofitel Corniche Abu Dhabi, which I took a week before my birthday. Thank you very much to the sponsor, you know who you are. You are always so generous and so kind to me all these years. May you be blessed more 🙂
The second celebration. Abu Dhabi, 8 July 2014.
The night before my birthday, I got depressed while walking around MOE and decided to go to Abu Dhabi where I had a little surprise dinner from my kambal. I know he had gone out of his way to prepare something at such short notice. Thank you as always.
The third celebration. House2HomeUAE office, Churchill Towers, Business Bay, 9 July 2014.
My boss bought me a blueberry cheesecake (my fave), which we all shared with the Property Consultants. Despite the Ramadan the guys still showed up in the office to greet me. It was a happy day.
The fourth celebration. My home in Business Bay, 9 July 2014.
Dinner with my roommates! The most fun part was the surprise! A fruitcake, a pink rose and balloons with LED lights waiting for me on my bed! I felt guilty that they stayed up late while waiting for me to arrive the night before. That would probably make me give way and burst to tears. I love their greetings on the balloons. I am so blessed to find such room filled with a bunch of happy, generous people. Guys, you’re the best! I will not survived the day without all of you. Mabuhay ang 301 Al Fardan haha!
Thank you for all your wishes and greetings. I am now 33 years old and rocking it 🙂
