Rasa Sayang Trip: The Departure aka My Birthday!

Date: 24 September 2013

Location: Pasay City

I woke up not being twentysomething anymore this day. But I am happy. Very!

Woke up to a beautiful Tuesday morning with my loves! With thoughts of last minute packing, leaving home for the next five days, whipping up my birthday cake, and actually making it on time at the airport, I began the day with a Holy Mass in the nearest church, at six in the morning.

The Homily was about the importance of two Holy Sacraments — Baptism and Confirmation, both of which our own Shrine is giving importance through the upcoming “Binyagang Bayan” and “Kumpilang Bayan this month. The priest stressed the importance of godparents (will thank these wonderful people who came blessing our lives in another post). It was a great Mass, but I attended alone, as my daughter was still sleeping then.

The hours went fast. I was able to bake this cake, though:

 

Yummy healthy whole wheat carrot cake with cream cheese and brown sugar, anyone? :)

Which, of course, this little marionette blew the candles out a gazillion times before we got to actually eat it!

Then, we’re headed to the airport! After paying the travel tax, getting instructions from the travel agent who booked our hotel and Universal Studios Tour, we had dinner then off we boarded in the plane!

All in one row: Sister's boyfie, my sister, my mom, on the other side, and me, my daughter, with my hubby taking this photo on our side.

And the vacation begins! We arrived Singapore at a little before midnight. We kind of settled down at about two in the morning, and had to wake up at six. Aria had a crying fest because she got homesick. We had a tough hour putting her to sleep again cos she was already asleep in the plane!

Next post: Sentosa Day! This day was fun. Until the next. Sleep, I must!

P.S. Before I forget, even if it was super duper late already, thank YOU for all the prayers, greetings via text and Facebook for my birthday and the safe travel of our family. We prayed for all of you as well! <3
