Life has been so good since I came in Dubai and to celebrate my 25th birthday I wanted to do something different. Something sophisticated yet not something extravagant. Something fun and something memorable.
I and my sister used to celebrate our birthdays together when we were little. I remember our mom’s endless to-do list from the preparation of the food, games and inviting the neighbors.
Dubai has many beautiful places to go for special occasions, however, with the goal of simplifying the celebration, we decided to celebrate at the Party Hall of City Oasis, Dubai Silicon Oasis for free.
As soon as we arrived at the venue, we started to pose and take photos at the backdrop.
We prepared some special Filipino dishes. My sisters and I, my cousin Milky and Michelle, the other celebrant, joined force to prepare the food and made it extra delicious . Our sister-in-law, Pammy also brought additional menu, our all time favorite- Spring Rolls (Lumpia).
We had so much fun playing sharades and pinoy henyo hosted by my special guest, my cousin Jerryvic and my sister Mary Rose while waiting for the other visitors.
Everyone enjoyed and loved the food. Indeed, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to celebrations, except for the white outfit request. Haha!
To my family and friends, thank you for making my 25th birthday unforgettable! I am so delighted and grateful to see you all celebrating with us. Special thanks to Ate Mik, Kuya Marvin and Kiomee for the venue. Birthday goal accomplished!
