I'm 20 and Happy!

Wow! Time sure flies in a blink of an eye. Today is Rizal Day here in The Philippines and I am also celebrating my 20th birthday. Thanks to everyone who called, texted and greeted me through social networking sites. Today, I thanked God for the amazing 20 years of my life. It was a bumpy road for me... but, I did enjoyed the adventure. I thanked God for making me strong enough to pass all the challenges I had for the past years.

Teenager no more!!! Time for some serious stuffs, right? :)

My birthday cake... Sweet! :)
I just find it so cool how everyone in our home calls me Ate (eldest sister) while my TFD family and other online buddies calls me Bunso (youngest).

When I was still 16 years old, I was so excited to reach 20 because me and mom had an agreement that whenever I reach 20, she'll let me go to wherever I want to go and do what I really want to do. Now, that I am 20.... I don't know where and what to start. All I know is just that I am so thankful that despite the ups and downs I went through, I still have my faith and my family by my side. 

I'm not into big parties as I believe having big parties are just waste of time and money so, my mom cooked us pork afritada for dinner.... man, this is my favorite, my weakness and my mom knows that too well! :) 

Pork afritada. ♥
Before dinner, me and my brothers bonded together by watching our super funny idol, Hanamichi Sakuragi of Slum Dunk! He has always been a good part of my childhood. 



and.... 

I got this photo on Instagram from my very own favorite band since high school days.... THE SPEAKS! ♥ 

Thanks to shaol1n for this photo. I'm so happy! ♥
Last night,  Raff, the vocalist of The Speaks commented in one of my photo on Instagram and wow... who would have thought?! :) I'm super happy! ^_^

And by the way, I'd just like to greet my mom a very happy 20th anniversary of being a mother. I hope you are happy being with us, guiding us every single step of the way. Know that I appreciate everything you do for me. You make impossible things possible! You are a wonder woman. I love you and stay strong and beautiful. Congratulations! ♥♥

Happy New Year everyone! 새해 복 많이 받으세요! Feliz año nuevo!

xo,
Marie

WHen I was your age, I was still in the Uni, never got my own money, hence very dependent on my parents for financial support.

At your age, it's the opposite. That's why I will always admire you for being the ever reliable person that you are to your family, Marie.

May God richly bless you and may He grant all your heart's desires. Hope you had a great one! MWah!

Marie said...

Happy 20th, sweetie!
