The other day, September 23rd, my sister Violy celebrated her 46th birthday. My sister is not feeling well since May until now. She's battling the big C and we are praying for a miracle for her. Her office mates came to visit her and they brought pancit bihon and a roll cake to celebrate her birthday. They said they get used to celebrate my sis' birthday every year in their office so they decided to come and celebrate her birthday in my sis' house. Early evening, my brother-in-law cooked pancit palabok, shanghai lumpia and he bought a roll cake. Before we ate, my hubby had a devotion and after that, he prayed for Violy thanking God for giving her another year. We also prayed that God will heal my sis and touch her in a special way. I know my sis has suffered so much but then she still hold to her faith. We believe in our hearts that this thing will come to pass and she will come out victorious with the help of God. Happy birthday sis, I wish you well and I pray that you get well soon.

Hubby and I went to the immigration office today to renew his visa because it will expire on the 11th of December. The lady there told us before that 3 months before his visa expires we have to renew it. It didn't take long to file it because there were no other customers there except us. We were done before lunch. The lady there told us to call her after 2 months to follow up. Then hubby drove to find a place to eat lunch. I suggested to him to go to the restaurant in beach resort to enjoy the fresh air and nice view. We drove to Nalinac Beach Resort where hubby and I stayed for a couple of days more than 7 years ago. We were disappointed that their restaurant is not serving foods these days.
So we went to the nearby resort, the Long Beach Resort and we're glad they are serving foods and they don't have many customers. Their restaurant is just by the beach so hubby and I enjoyed the view and the cool breeze. I don't care if the foods there are pricey but you can't beat the nice view and the fresh, cool air there. It was so relaxing. I wanted to take some photos but I was so disappointed that I didn't bring the memory card of my camera. I left it in my other purse when I had some of the photos developed. So we just used my camera phone but then the photos are not as vivid as that from my Canon digicam. Oh well, at least we had some souvenirs. By the way, hubby and I ordered fish steak with buttered vegetables and a choice of either fries or rice. Hubby chose fries and I chose rice of course. The meal was good, hubby had iced tea and I had water.

Hubby and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary last September 11th. How time flies! It feels like it's only been yesterday when we said "I do". This is the 3nd time that we celebrated our anniversary here in my homeland. The first time was in the year 2004 and then 2009 and this year 2010. We planned to just go out and eat because I don't want to prepare and cook. It's so tiresome and I just want to eat and enjoy but then my sister needed my help. She's been sick and she needed to have a dextrose that day. Hubby understand so we ended up cooking in the house. I asked Jhun to cook goulash and my brother Celso fried the chicken wings and my 2 nephews grilled pork chops and my brother made dinakdakan. We ordered pancit and bought ice cream so that was it. We ate supper just us and my family. We didn't invite the neighbors.

Two weeks ago, hubby and I bought a new refrigerator. It's a 12 cubic foot LG ref with deodorizer inside and a nice pink flowery design in front of its door. They said this is a new arrival. It's been a while that hubby wanted to buy a new and bigger ref because our old refrigerator is so small, only a 6 cubic foot. The problem was we didn't have the budget for that, much more pay it in cash. So what we did, we bought it in installment for 6 months. We paid the down payment and will go pay the monthly installments every 25th of the month. If we will be paying on or before the due date, they will give us a rebate. I like our new ref, it has more room for meat, ice, foods, veggies, etc. Hubby can make now his iced tea and put it there. Before, there was no room for his pitcher with his tea. We just have to squeeze our monthly budget for 6 months. See the difference between our old and new refrigerator. Big difference huh!
