Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

Of Love and Sisterhood

 

 

01.29.2014: Happy Birthday, Boobie! 

Hello, dolls! 🙂 It is now March 27 in Manila. Meaning, my sister is going to make my parents proud in a few hours from now!! 🙂 I am dedicating this post to her,cause this is the least thing that I can do and I’ve been feeling sad all day cause I really wish I could be there with them to celebrate 😦 I could just imagine the sumptuous feast that they will be having after the ceremony. I am so proud of my sister cause she made it through college with flying colors. But most of all, I am very happy for my parents!! All the hard work that they’ve done for us and the support that they’ve been giving us since day 1. I wish I could see the look on my Dad’s face when my sister goes up that stage, but I know our hearts are connected and I will be feeling the same joy that they will feel right at that moment. So before I start bawling here, I will end this introduction now and move on to the rest of my entry.

Had to move the balloons in our room cause it was too hot and we were afraid they will pop.

Vietnamese Spring Roll Ingredients

This certain brand of rice paper is hard to handle. Speed is necessary when using this.

My parents love vietnamese spring rolls so much, just like me!! And I am so happy that I can just do this whenever I want cause it’s as easy as 1,2,3!

My ultimate birthday present for my sister was to cook for her

My sister loves chicken, and every year she eats fried chicken for her birthday. Since this year is different, I told her to ask our cook to do that for lunch and let me do my “thing” for dinner.

Everyone loved this!! And I am so happy !! I was only able to marinate it for 2 1/2 hours and it still came out flavorful 🙂

I am one proud sister. I know this is just the beginning of  all the awesome “grown up” things that will come your way (and no it doesn’t involve you drinking and getting drunk).
