Birthday the me!

Tropical storm "Lando" is currently wrecking havoc over Northern and Central Luzon. So when 19th of October ushered in, it was accompanied with howling winds and a very heavy downpour. Signal no. 2 was hoisted over Metro Manila, classes in all levels were suspended for the day and I turned 47 years old. 

Hopefully, this doesn't mean I will also hurdle a stormy year ahead but I like to maintain a positive state of mind and equate all the raindrops with countless blessings which will sustain my already blessed life.

D and I had a low key celebration as we didn't want to venture too far in this bleak weather. I picked a nearby Cantonese restaurant named Luk Foo and ordered the usual fare - some dimsum, soup, fried rice, steamed fish and noodles (for long life!)

Happy happy birthday. I hope this means a downpour of blessings~! Hope that the country does not suffer too much from this typhoon.

Thank you :)

Sadly, provinces up north are under a state of calamity. The storm has been quite a force to reckon with. TV news is filled with images of flooded barangays, people in evacuation centers and damages to properties as well as agricultural crops.
