Mananita

"Mañanita" is one of the old Filipino traditions ( derived from the Spanish) that is done by greeting someone's birthday on the first hour of the birthday celebrant.

Well, that was it, my children in Balulang surprised me of this gesture. Though they made it earlier because my grandchildren had to sleep early because they have early morning classes but nevertheless, I was still so surprised because I was not aware of it. I thought that our dining out the other day was the end of for my birthday celebration.

I was preparing to sleep when I heard some people singing "happy birthday". When I looked out from my window, I saw everyone; my two daughters with my son-in-laws, grandchildren, my nieces and nephew. They brought with them a bouquet of roses, a cake with a candle and some gifts for me. Here are the pictures:

That's me looking out the window to see who are singing.. I already put some cream on my face and was already so prepared to go to bed.. :)


My nieces, Allen and Che2 (my roomate) and Junjun my ever active nephew who is always at my beck and call. All of them are truly a blessing in my life.


Mayette, my daughter with his family.

These are all my children and grandchildren, my nieces and nephew who also are my 'neighbors' here in Balulang.

I thank God for a blessed and wonderful birthday with them.
