I admit I was kind of depressed that my birthday falls in a no typhoon but with heavy rains that lasted for days that makes the Philippines capital and the nearby provinces in a virtual water world, again. The heavy rains even surpassed the tragic event bought by a massive typhoon called Ondoy years ago. So what makes it more depressing? I am so sick and my ears are in pain, I have fever because of that and I can’t do anything except drink my medicines and watched TV (that makes me sick even more). Hubby managed to call a noodle delivery for my pansit and yes, I slightly felt that oh, it’s my birthday!
But my JaLec online friends whose not here in the Philippines surprises me with a dozen beautiful red roses with a cute teddy bear and a cake that was delivered by super dripping wet courier and I can only help them by giving them tip for a coffee to keep them warm. But most of all, it was delivered on the time that I was chatting to them on the YM conference and I had a teary eyed knowing they did that even though we haven’t seen each other personally. They even made a birthday video for me and sent it through my photobucket account. I was so blessed with wonderful online friends and they bring out the sunshine in the gloomy weather of supposed to be my big day. I can never thank them enough for that surprises and I owe it them for trusting me. What a birthday! :)
