Pancit for Long Life?

family, It's my Life No Comments »

My cousin Anne, celebrated her 25th birthday last August 15. It was the same day when the Catholic believers celebrated the Assumption of Mary. But she treated us the following day. She asked my mother to cook pancit for her.

Pancit is always present in our table everytime a member of our family celebrates his or her birthday. But since my mother cooks pancit well, sometimes we also have it for lunch or dinner on regular days.

Pancit is actually a Chinese dish. It was said that its literal meaning is easy to cook. Why can’t I cook pancit then? Of course, I can! But not as good as my mom’s version of it! :)

Pancit is also referred to a birthday dish, for long life, whether is it bihon, sotanghon, canton or palabok. Maybe because of its noodles is long.

The 2nd best pancit, I’ve tasted (for my mom’s pancit is the first :) ) is i one of the panciteria somewhere in Ongpin Street in Binondo, Manila where China town is located.

Grab a pancit now!

What baby are you?

It's my Life 2 Comments »

I celebrated my 27th birthday last June 4. Gosh! I’m twenty-seven. When I was young, I used to be so idealistic about life. In choosing a boyfriend turned to a husband, a career. I used to be very objective. I once told my self that when I reached 27, I should be married. Well, I am not. But I have a baby. A beautiful gift, God has ever given me.

As I get older(whow!), I learned that life isn’t what I think off.  In this travel, I have been through a lot of ups and downs. So much tears had been cried out. So much heartache had been experienced.  Yet, so much laughter and joy had been shared. I know that life is yet to offer more. Could it be more tears? more heartaches? It could also be more laughters and triumphs..

As I reflect on my special day,  I asked myself, where i am now? Am I happy with what I have? Am I a fulfilled woman? 

I didn’t come from a rich family.  When I was in college,  I used to work at SpeechPower to support my studies. My Ninang Lina and my Tabibe(as we often call our Tita Evelyn) have been very good Samaritans in order for me finish college. My mom used to sell soap in the market for our food and for my sisters “baon” for school. My father then was wandering around.

With God’s help and love for me, I graduated from Polytechnic University of the Philippines in Sta. Mesa Manila, with a degree in BS Computer Engineering. Two days after graduation, I landed a job with Link2Support now Synnex-Concentrix Corporation. I’m still with the company.  I fell in love and got pregnant. Gave birth to a wonderful baby, Antoinette at the age of 25. I was able to send my sister to college and she finished BS Psychology. She’s now working in a well known recruitment agency in Makati. I support and work for family. Kinda tiring but I’m happy.  

At 27, I can say that I’m a fulfilled woman. I may not have all the riches the world can offer. But I have a stable job. I have a family who will always be there for me, no matter what. I have a very loving fiance. And ofcourse, a dear daughter who inspire me to keep going on with my life.

I thank God for another year and more years to come. I thank God for family, for friends, for my job, for everything. There are times that I can’t help but to ask God, why do I need to experience this, that..Eventually, I realized how blessed I am and beloved by God.

Me at twenty seven!
