Thank you for the LOVE!

Early morning of my birthday, as soon as my eyes opened, I was greeted by a wonderful surprise from the GOppets. They always try to out-do their last surprise so I am always excited when an occasion arises. I know I’m in for a very nice treat..


And true enough, I saw these on my vanity. This is where they always put my surprises because the first thing I do upon waking up is to go to the bathroom to do my business & wash up haha.



I love all their gifts but this one I think is my favorite because of its quirkiness. Anyone who knows me would definitely say this best describes me. <3 I wore it right away.



I LOVE homemade cards. It says they put time & energy into it. I have a treasure trove where I keep all their love letters & notes.

My Lovey always writes me long letters. She knows I treasure each word.



My babies like PUNS. Hahaha they always make me laugh with their captions! :P I showered hurriedly so I can wear this beautiful “KAFTAN-K” from my favorite store for my special day. Don’t you love it?



This one I’m saving for our 21st WEDDING anniversary next month! Excited to use it when we check in & have a date at…

Thank you to my F1 family for your never-ending thoughtfulness & kindness to the GOppets!! <3



Thank you to the MOMENT GROUP & my love Maita Q for this yummy surprise! <3

Speaking of anniversary, gusto nyo ba ng cheesy?  Just when I thought Kap’s all romanced out, he does something like this. With matching angpao & flowers pa! Jackpot na ako, haba pa ng hair ko! Thank you so much, my Honey! <3 I love you!


One flower for each year of my life. ROMANTIC naman pala si Kap!!!



Minsan lang si Kap magbigay ng pera so ipapa-frame ko ito.. pati laman hahaha! :P



Shucks no kidding, nalaglag ang panty ko hahahaha!

Sweetheart, The Lord blessed you with everything you need. Home, family, money, etc. And you were able to manage it very well. There’s one wish we all want: For you to manage your health. Not for your sake alone but for us. WE ALL NEED YOU!

Matamis na puso,

Ang iyong mukha ang nais kong masilayan pagkatapos ng isang mahabang araw (kahit sa panahinip).

Ang iyong mga bisig ang nais kong nakabalot sa akin kapag nakakaramdam ako ng lungkot o pangungulila (pati 50 shades of Grey).

At ikaw lamang sa buong mundo ang nais kong makapiling magpakailanman.

Habang buhay ba nagmamahal, Honey.

I would also like to thank my sponsor friends for the astounding show of love. What is a birthday party without lootbags?
