If President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo did her SONA (State of the Nation Address) last July 28, where she made a report of our country’s progress and stuff, I also made my own version of SONA on my birthday celebration last July 31st. But this time it meant “So Old Na Ako! ’08” hehe! Just like the regular SONA of PGMA, it was like the much awaited event of the year. I was actually a bit hesitant if I’ll still celebrate this year coz I didn’t get to save much, but good thing I found a place serving quite affordable food in sets. So after having a part of the venue Krocodile Grille at Trinoma reserved a week earlier, I right away invited some friends and family members to join. I didn’t invite all my friends and officemates, just few ones, coz I somewhat limited the attendees to around 25. Most of those were friends of mine, coz my stepdad also prepared some food at home for our family members. So after work, (yes, may pasok ako nung bday ko!) I got very excited for the time to tick by to 630pm.
Of course I was the first one to arrive at the venue, I have to arrange the food anyway. Around 7pm, my cousins arrived, then followed by my officemates and then the rest of the people invited started to pile up. The gathering actually became a sort of a reunion for my RX friends coz aside from my usual gimik buddies Mei, LT, Arden and Nhinz, our long-time-no-see RX friend Kristine (aka Keysi, Manay Gina de Vengenge, and Astroboy) also made it to attend! We had so much fun!

Needless to say, it was another memorable birthday celebration! Although some failed to join because of the rain and some personal reasons, masaya pa rin! See you next year! 😉
