My Lola’s 75th Birthday

Every month I always visit my grandmother in Victoria, Laguna, and last month, out of the blue I asked her age. I know her birthday but I don’t know her birth year. When she said that she's turning 75, I decided to save the date so we can visit my grandmother on her special day. It’s a diamond birthday and not everyone reaches that age so it is something that we should really celebrate.

When I got home, I message my mom and siblings about it. Para naman marami kami di ba and they agreed to attend my grandmother’s birthday except for my mom of course because she’s not here in the Philippines. But she sponsored some of the food so that’s fine. Hehehe! My sister informed my aunts about the 75th birthday.

So it is like a reunion, the funny thing is hindi kami nag-usap ng mga dadalhin na food so we ended up having a “Pansit Birthday Celebration”, for long, long and long life talaga. My grandmother cooked pansit bihon, I brought 2 bilao of pansit bihon and one of my aunts brought 1 bilao of pansit palabok. We’re only 25 people including adults, kids, and babies, sobra-sobra sa pansit. Hehehe! 

Sana pala spaghetti na lang binili ko since I bought the cake at Red Ribbon. I was glad that Red Ribbon in Paseo De Sta Rosa is already open as early as 8AM. =)

There’s no specific party time so since our family was the first to arrive and lunch time na rin wala pa yung iba, nagstart na kami agad. My grandmother was really happy, even though she was not feeling well on her birthday. Good thing I was still on my way to Los Banos when they texted me to buy medicine or else dadayuhin pa nila ang Mercury Drug.

It’s almost a whole day of celebration and a whole day of eating pansit. =) By the way, I did the birthday banner, click here to check my DIY post.
