Our Wedding Anniversary
Tuesday, January 30, 2007
Last January 28 me and my husband celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. For the past years we celebrated privately. It used to be a dinner with the kids and that's it. Sometimes we watched a movie before the dinner and on other times we stroll along the beach before the dinner. Since we are both working and the kids are schooling, we avoided too much preparation. Even my kids' birthdays were celebrated in different restaurants. I cannot remember anymore the last time we had a party at home.

Our anniversary fell on a Sunday. My husband prodded me to celebrate it with close family members. We invited my mom, my dad, my sister and her family (they live in Quezon City), and my uncle and his wife who arrived from Italy and are just staying here for a month. Most of my husband's relatives stay in Catanduanes, Bicol. It is difficult for them to come on occasions like this.

Me and my husband did all the preparation. We bought everything fresh from the market. We were together until we finished cooking. We were tired but I really had a grand time. It was FUN! Ginataang hipon (photo above) and alimango are the favorites in our menu. We also cooked adobong pusit, campis, pancit guisado, inihaw na bangus, and inihaw na pusit. It was just bad I failed to take pictures of all the food. I was really busy that day.

Our guests entertained themselves by taking turns in singing. That's my eldest boy holding the microphone(photo above). He is singing In The Navy alternating it with W.M.C.A. for the nth time. My sister and her daughter are the ones sitting near him.

Unknowingly, tears rolled down from my eyes as I watched my parents sing together with the song Love Story. It was so many years ago when I last saw them as close as this physically. Much more hear them sing together. I may feel very tired that day because of all the preparation but nothing compares to the happiness that I felt. That day was very memorable to me and I will cherish it for the rest of my life.
