A Birthday Picnic

Post Content

November 28, 2010

I recently celebrated my birthday and boy was I glad that I spent the loveliest picnic birthday so far. The weather in La Mesa EcoPark was just right. Not too sunny and not too gloomy. So long as it’s not raining, the fair weather was perfect for that day.

We’ve got our gingham cloth, our picnic basket, our yummy goodies, our treasured cameras and I’ve got Brian for my date. What more can I ask for? So off to the park we go. *smiles*

Love all that green and yellow! }

I couldn’t sleep the night before, not because of over excitement about the picnic (although that can be another reason) but because my B is just so good in pulling off a surprise! I was close to feeling depressed when I heard my B said something like “What do you want as a gift? I’ll buy it for you.” I said, “Is that for real? You didn’t prepare anything for me this year? You’re not usually like that.” B asked, “How am I usually?” I answered, “You are thoughtful and full of surprises.” And then my B just smiled.

And full of surprises he is! As I was about to sleep, I pulled the pillow and to my surprise I saw a sleek black camera with white casing! My B gifted me with Canon S95! Holy smokes that is so awesome! I’m really so happy and excited. Thanks again, darling. I love love love your gift. And thanks Tita Vi for accompanying Brian to buy this gift. *wink*

Lopez Picnic Grounds, La Mesa EcoPark
Five hectares of picnic spots with grilling facilities underneath a forest of varied trees.


Back at home, my mom is busy preparing delectable dishes to serve to our guests. She cooked my favorite dish and Brian’s favorite, too! I got my favorite dessert – cream float with fruits on top. And it was nice that they loved it!

I got all the ingredients to make for a perfect birthday not to mention the cool gifts my mom and my brother gave me! Thank you so so much, mommy and little brother! *blush*

Thank you to each and everyone of you who greeted me on my special day!
I appreciate all the cute and lovely messages!
