I've been waiting for this month to arrive, but it seems so fast! But maybe there's just a lot of events that happened lately. It makes me sad that I am neglecting this blog--updating it once a month (Oh, my poor baby! ).
October is my birthday month!!! I turned 28 last Tuesday. I gifted myself (and my whole family) a brand new sofa. Besides clothes, shoes, books and chocolates, I also loooove furnitures!! I shall update you with that when I visit my folks in Pampanga. I had it customized so it's still at the warehouse. You know how I love clothes and shoes, but for some reason, I am anhedonic towards them lately. I would like to believe it's part of my, how should I say it, hmmm transformation?! Since I started attending The Feast last year, my life had a new perspective, like everything became clear, my purpose, my dreams. And best of all, I got to know God as a happy and embracing God, which makes my Sundays non-negotiable as I have a date with my Father. :)
I invited my sister and cousins over for dinner last Tuesday. I craved for pancit malabon and pichi-pichi so I just called Amber, and within 40 minutes, the food arrived. My brother-in-law also bought pizza. It was a simple, laid-back celebration.
|My obligatory photo-op. My cousins and I played with my sister's dorky glasses.|

|My birthday cake, courtesy of my friend, Joanne. It says "Welcome Home, Judette; Happy birthday, Beng!" My friend Judette went home for a 3-week vacation from the U.K.|
|Me and Judette. Geez, I didn't even bother to change clothes. I'm such a home buddy. haha|
|Here are my college friends. From top: Kathy (who just came from a 12-hour hospital duty, Judette, Joanne (the new mom), and her darling baby boy, Neo.|
|The next day, Maribeth and her daughter, Savine arrived.|
|Obviously, this charming boy was the center of attention. He's just so lovely. We're all his godparents.|
|Neo was mesmerized with Savine. He kept on crawling over her and smiling at her.|
|One of the greatest feelings is to be touched by an innocent baby. So true! Actually, it was Bryan who mentioned this over Skype while I stutter for words out of excitement.|
There you go! My other wish on my 28th birthday is to make this blog bigger. :)
