It’s my 24th name-day & to celebrate it, we had a cook off at my place on June 18th so we could greet the midnight together. It’s just a small get-together but, as it turns out, no event is too small if it’s with the best people a girl could have on her birthday.
We continued the celebration on the 19th! I actually wore a dress cause, you know, it’s my day.
To everyone who sent their love and beautiful messages on my 24th name-day, I thank you all so very much! Thanks especially to those who celebrated it with me. You all made my day super special. Here's to another year of exciting (mis)adventures, gastronomic conquests, nee friends, wonderful opportunities, a hundred (or a thousand more) firsts, and everything else that this crazy, beautiful life has to offer. Daghang Salamat! Photo credit to @cheermur
We were supposed to eat at somewhere fancy but we ended up at Captain A’s for a special boodle fight dinner. If you don’t know what a boodle fight is, it’s a uniquely Filipino dining experience where food is laid on a banana leaf and people try to eat as much as possible with their hands. It’s a “fight” cause people will be competing with each other over the food to be eaten. It’s a beautiful mess, really.
