Early in the morning, friends came to awaken the celebrator with songs of blessings and encouragement.
|Friends and family singing songs by the stairs waiting for the celebrator to come down.|
|Fresh from bed but still attentive to the reading of verses from the Bible.|
In the evening, more friends joined us for the celebration. We served dishes that we used to enjoy back home.
|L-R, shrimp and mango salad, grilled fish, sauteed shrimp, Goldilocks mocha cake,|
friend spring roll, buttered mussels, and pancit (Filipino friend noodles)
This is the way we celebrate birthdays back home. How about in your culture?
