My son and I had been through thick and thin in life. No one will ever know how strong we are and how we had escape hell. But one thing is for sure, we are happy now and blessed with a beautiful family. And that is what matters.

Jigz when he was 4!

I was so excited for his big day. We are excited to prepare and getting him a present. We want to give him what he's wishing for, a scooter! He is always complaining his one is too small and I don't understand it because I thought scooters are all just the same. So I told my husband we can check in Halfords.

And as we saw all the scooters, we're clueless on what's the difference. We ask the staff but it seems he's not very knowledgeable about the scooters either. So we decided that we're going to just take Jigz here on his birthday and let him choose what he wants. But I was too eager to get a present so I show that picture to him and pointed to me what he wants.

And there we got it on the next day! But Jigz didn't know.

And we got him a helmet and elbow/knee pad as he always goes to the skate park and coming home with a small injury. So I told him he must wear it all the time he's playing in the skate park.

Happy Birthday, Jigz! 🎉

July 16, 2021

Last night I tried to do this around 3 am as we took my mother-in-law to the hospital and just back at that time. It was so sudden that I wasn't able to do much decoration. My body gave up and had a lie-down and today when I wake up, I heard Jigz was screaming. He's so happy with what he saw! And started opening gifts.

And I started cooking! Because I want to take him out to the cinema he and Tia to watch Space Jam because that's what he wants to do. But unfortunately, we're waiting for the hospital to call for Mum can be discharged anytime. So we have to go to the cinema tomorrow and he's okay with it as he is excited to go to the skate park with his new scooter. And aside from that, he received a skateboard and RC Helicopter from his uncle.

Here's what I made!

A Filipino Food Birthday Dishes! This is what you normally would see at a birthday party in the Philippines.

  • Spaghetti (sweet)

  • Fried Chicken (all-time favourite)

  • Shanghai Rolls (favourite "pabalot/take-away")

  • Leche Flan

  • Fruit Salad

  • Cake (Maltesers Cake so everyone can eat it!)

  • Cupcakes (if the cake isn't enough)

It took me 3 hours to cook it all. And guess what it's only for us! 🤣 Look at my two happy kiddos!

But Mum wasn't home yet. We're not complete. We feel bad that she is in the hospital. And Mum is not happy that she will miss Jigz' birthday. Jigz doesn't want to blow his cake without her granny. And Mum wants to go home to be with the kids.

Finally, we got Mum before nighttime. She was so happy to be discharged from the hospital and can't wait to go home. And what a lovely reunion even Mum was only away for 25 hours.

And the candle is finally blown. Happy Birthday, Jigz! 🎉

~From your family who loves you loads.

First I will apologize for coming late for the party and secondly, I will say that your kids must be very proud of such a loving and caring mother... I can't imagine the type of happiness that is going through Jigz mind. It's a wonderful thing to celebrate birthdays with our family members, just like you said, it is a kind of family reunion. I am very happy that granny has been discharged and she was able to join in the celebration. I can see how my little friend Tia will be filled with happiness celebrating with her brother.. Lastly, I pray for good health and long life for Jigz... Happy Birthday Jigz.👏🙌😂🤣🥞🍕🍿🎂🍩

Happy birthday to your handsome boy, he is so cute and deserves what you were able to come up with. You know you are the best mom the boy could ever ask for. Just look at his genuine smile, it shows how much your effort and gifts mean to that lad.

I pray your mother-in-law gets better so he can go to the cinema even though he is happy with or without going to the cinema.

Your dishes look so delicious, I will love to place my order of cupcake, spaghetti, fruit salad, and cake but most importantly, I wouldn't want to miss the fried chicken because that's my favorite.

Happy birthday to him once again, wish him more years and the best in life. Enjoy your day.
