The Little Birthday Party for Mama

We have just arrived today from Manukan for my mother's little "early-morning birthday party" after the morning serenade. My mother, who had just turned forty-nine years old today seemed to look younger than that age, maybe because she looked so happy, so loved and so in loved. Her wish to have morning serenade birthday was materialized and she didn't have anything to ask for, she said. The people who did the morning serenade were mom's family and relatives who started serenading at four thirty in the morning. Present of course was mom's mom; my grandmother.

Mom wearing a pink top and a trendy shorty-short added to her younger look even with her purple-rimmed eyeglasses. We concluded that it was a just birthday celebration for mom because she got to be with her family who dedicated birthday wishes to her, prayed for her more blessing and long life and chit-chatted with her after. We watched the entire serenade; from when mom welcomed then in to the prayer and dance.

When the serenade and prayer was over, we then helped serving the foods that we helped prepare. We had the foods cooked and prepared at midnight until two in the morning to serve warm foods. We only had a little preparation; just a pig roast that we already chopped and packed with rice, pansit and dinuguan. We as well made a macaroni with fruit salad for dessert.

And of course, we bought a birthday cake for mom. Since green is her favorite color, we got her a Pandan Chocolate Cake from Grandma's Best. Although it was only a simple birthday party, we were sure mom was overjoyed.
