Birthday Cakes, Birthday Cakes!

Nope, they're not necessarily birthday cakes (only one was) but I got them all on my birthday!

I celebrated my birthday yesterday - I won't be shy to say it - I turned 35 yesterday.  I'm sure you will all relate, but I don't feel any older than 30.  Well, except of course of certain body aches and pains, being (very) impatient, fearful of certain things, discovery of white strands of hair (quite a LOT of them), and having a hard time losing weight - yes, the battle with the (mega) bulge.  I still feel I'm the same person - only more responsible (I'm sure my mom will give me a high brow!) more mature and with a better (somehow) understanding of life.

So there - it was my birthday yesterday!  Yey!

A few days ago, I received a delicious chocolate cake from Starbucks.

Then yesterday - I got not one, not two BUT three cakes from Anita Li of the Baked by Anita fame.

We had a staycation at F1 Hotel last weekend and Pau gifted us with another cake!

There was a year that I didn't receive any cake from my Panget and I was so sad!  This year made up for the sadness because I got these cakes by chance.  They were not planned (except for the Starbucks) so the surprise was really delightful.

I am smiling ear to ear.

Thank you Starbucks Philippines, Anita Li and F1 Hotel Manila.  You guys made my birthday extra special.  The cakes mean so much, I will never forget this - EVER!!

Happy Birthday to me!! Hihi.. :)
(It truly was a VERY HAPPY birthday)

Mercury Drugstore: No Return No Exchange

Mercury Drugstore has been the only drugstore in the country for years.  It was only recently that there were new players in the industry.  Before there flooding of The Generics Pharmacy - it was only in Mercury Drugstore that you can buy medicines.  I used to complain that there were so few Mercury Drugstores and that their business hours were only up to 8PM.  When I was younger I used to worry that if an emergency happens, we wouldn't be able to buy medicine elsewhere!  But then a few years ago, I was so happy to see that there are branches that are open 24 hours.  Gosh, FINALLY someone thought of doing that.  It was a long time coming.  A few years after - branches were mushrooming everywhere.  I applaud their desire to serve more people - I thought it was such a great move.  I mean for a pioneer - it was a long time coming. One of the things that I like with Mercury Drugstore is that they offer refunds and exchanges without question.  As long as you have the receipt with y

Breastfeeding Mama!

"Welcome to the Milk Mama Diaries Carnival (July). For this month, we join the National Nutrition Council - Department of Health in celebrating Nutrition Month with the theme "Isulong ang Breastfeeding - Tama, Sapat at EKsklusibo!" Participants will share their experiences in promoting breastfeeding or their tips on how breastfeeding should be promoted. Please scroll down to the end of this post and check out the other carnival participants." When I got pregnant, I knew instantly that I would be breastfeeding my baby.  My mom found it odd that I decided to breastfeed - this was because I grew up formula fed.  My twin brother and I were given formula since birth, there was no attempt whatsoever to breastfeed.  In fact my mom recounted that she was given medicine to stop the milk production.  My pedia, Dr. Joy Ty-Sy said that during my mom's time (when she had us) it was the boom of formulas, that it was the trend that time.  I grew up with formula, my c
