Early this morning, Lilibeth, my Filipina friend who live 15 miles away from our house called me and told me that Irene, another Filipina friend that I had not met yet was inviting both of us for a "get-together" dinner, because it was a chance that they are in town. So, we agreed that Beth will pick me up around 4:00 in the afternoon. But when we arrived there, I was surprised because the "get-together" dinner was an advance surprise birthday party for me and my birthday will be tomorrow. Irene prepared Pancit Guisado, Lumpia Shanghai, Blackberry Pie and Potato Salad; while Lilibeth bought a birthday cake and strawberry ice cream.
After we eat, we went outside for some fun. They wanted me to try the golf car since among the three of us, I am the one who don't drive yet. So, I gave in and took them to a mile-long zigzag driving. I was very scared and they were just laughing and screaming... but later on, I learned how to relax, took control of it and had enjoyed the moment.
Thank you very much, Lilibeth and Irene. I had so much fun and you have given me a wonderful advance birthday party. I will never forget this. I love you both.
