mike's bday is May 8, mine is May 1, his falls on a weekday, mine always a holiday. hehe. so we decided to just celebrate it last May 6.
as part of my birthday gifts for us, i did the cooking of most in the menu myself- tacos, menudo, macaroni salad and marinade BBQ and liempo. Ninang Bi, ate eslyn and mike's mom did the pansit. tatay made the relyenong bangus, mike made the grilled tilapia and angie and me did the pamamalengke and pag-slice ng lahat ng ingredients. grabe, effort..
anyways, despite the pagod and puyat (because we did the marinade and mac salad the day before), our first big event in our house was sucessful. there were friends and relatives and even kapitbahay who celebrated with us, and friends' friends, too. hehe..
am so happy to know that our guests liked my menudo, and my tacos was a best seller, too!
thanks to mama for the maja blanca, ate rona and ate cel for the ice cream, ninang bi and ninang jo for the cakes, ethel, ate alma, ninang aly and sir osee for the gifts.
and to all who came, you just dont know how happy we were to have celebrated that special event with you.
