Things I’m Grateful For

Thank you, God, for the gift of life. 🙏

A surprise gift from my long-time friend, Lanie.
My fave cake from my daughter.

I’ve got a lot of things to be thankful for on my birthday this year. I’m happy to share that my health status is quite okay now. Based on my latest blood workup, there are no traces of fats in my liver. Weight loss is one of the factors that help my liver heal from fatty liver disease. I’ve lost almost 30 pounds primarily due to adhering to a low-carb diet. I eat everything in moderation, but I eat more veggies now. I’ve also added chia and flax seeds to my drinks.

Financially, we make ends meet. Despite the limited source of income, we’ve managed to support our youngest through college. We are looking forward to our son’s graduation this year. 🙏

Simple Birthday Celebration for the Man of the House

Hubby just celebrated his birthday a few days ago. We had spaghetti, pizza, calamari, and mojos for lunch and dinner courtesy of our daughter. Thanks, N.

Everyone is busy so we were not able to take pictures of the food except this Ube Bloom Cake from Red Ribbon Bakeshop. We prefer this cake variant from the other ones that we tried before because the icing is not too thick and the sweetness is just right for us.

Happy birthday, oppa! Saranghae!

Happy birthday, we love you so much. We pray for your good health and long life. May all your wishes come true. 🙂

My simple birthday meal

Besides my birthday two weeks ago, I have other things to be thankful about. There were unexpected blessings, including the result of my mammogram which is negative (no signs of abnormality). After visiting my doctor and hearing the good news, I headed to Red Ribbon to buy our favorite birthday cake and then Jollibee to pick up a simple lunch for our family of four.
