It is just a number 50 who gave me extra happiness! I am now counting for another year to come to my life. I could not imagine that I reached this day despite so many circumstances that happened to my life. My heart is filled with happiness and I am so grateful to God above.


I celebrated the 50th golden years of my life. Since I am away from home, my family had a surprising celebration. They called me in messenger and I was really surprised.

My only son with his family. They surprised me and the first time I have a birthday cake.


This is the cake they bought for me.


Completing the flavor of my golden years, they are my granddaughters.

I told my son that no need to have a cake or any celebration. I am so practical. Greetings are enough but they made it for me to be happier on my 50th birthday. And yes, I felt a difference!

Saudi Arabia celebration

I cooked not for me but for my Filipina friends who were born in October. They preferred to celebrate it at home on my birthday. They brought food and cakes.


They are all the celebrants.


It is me who came from outside buying something and they took a group snapshot.


She was born October 8 and I was born at 9. But she bought a cake for me and not for herself. It was a very touching moment, how she gave way for the 50th birthday.


I received her gift heartily and we enjoyed it together.


Another cake from the niece of my employer.


This was also coming from my neighbor. We had a lot of cakes.

Big surprised!

I took care of this man when he was 4 or 5 years old and now he has his own family. He bought me a mobile phone from the first salary after graduated and being employed. Yesterday, he gave me flowers and money decorated on it. I was so amazed at how they are treating me like a member of the family.

The biggest surprised!

This year is the first year, I celebrated my birthday without my mother. I remember before, every time October 9 came, they greeted me by phone. They sent messages and I called them back. Last Friday, I was also emotionally missing the one who gave me life.


It muted me when this moth visited me during my birthday and the color was a golden yellow. It made me breathe so deeply and looking at the moth made me felt my mother was around me

Anyway, the happiness that people brought by for me, made my wishes come true. I also received greetings from people around the world in FB and messengers. I also received tokens in my wallet. I could not express and there are not enough words to describe the feelings within me. People made my day memorable during my golden birthday celebration.

My prayer

Lord, thank you for everything. I could not enumerate the blessings you bestowed upon me but still, I became a sinner who sometimes offended your will. Forgive me, Lord! Please give us good health and heal those people who are sick. I put everything in your hand, my dear Lord!

Birthday of my Whitey


My pet Whitey is one year old today. I remember the day how I rescued him from food poisoning that killed all the cats on the farm.

I love him and he loves me. Happy 1-year-old birthday of my Whitey! He is a cat of hive

It's me,



It sure looks like you enjoyed your birthday celebrations with your family and friends...Looks like there was a lot of cake too! Happy birthday!

My goodness, why many cakes? Who eat those cakes? I just give it to the people outside , the cleaners on the street. Thank you @galenkp

I guess cake is the accepted way to help celebrate a birthday, you just seemed to have a lot of them although I'm sure the people outside enjoyed it.

Yes, I will give it and my friends took the remaining foods as well.

Happy Golden birthday to you po! And Happy birthday to the other celebrants. May you continue to be blessed always! Enjoy your day po!

Thank you dear @livinguktaiwan. Dropping by in my post made me so happy and just like additional to my 50th bday celebration. Wishing for the best not only me but to all of us.

Happy, Happy Birthday!!! What a wonderful way to celebrate your special day! I cannot believe that the baker turned out to be Filipino! Cake and cookies! That is such a special friend!

Happy 50 years! You look so young, I cannot believe you are that age! It must be a wonderful life you are leading. Or a beautiful heart that keeps you looking so good from the inside out. The shop was amazing and the cakes were fabulous! I hope you had a great time! I love your #MarketFriday!!!! I love celebrations!I have done my first reading all of the #MarketFriday posts, which I normally do before I comment on any. It has been my habit since the beginning of the challenge. I have told all of you how humbled I am, so many people taking the time to put a quality post together, so that we may share with each other.

To this day, I learn something new each time I read your post, sometimes only a small detail is new, but, it is a process, like building with blocks. Each time, more blocks are added until I understand how it is built, or how you think. Your culture is one to be proud of and I am so excited to learn more each week. I am fascinated by it all. I never like to miss anything on it. I cannot even begin to tell you how much they mean to me, that you take the time. There have been some really interesting ways that #MarketFriday has been presented, all of which add more charm to the mixing bowl. The challenge points out our differences, but, then, it also shows many things our cultures share. When the day is done, it shows off how human we all are and how we basically all care about our families and others.

I love the experience of it all. I appreciate the love and support given to #MarketFriday! Thank you! Truly! Your participation adds a piece of your world, and I have to say, people are interested in is seeing it. This entire challenge has opened up the world to me and so many others. Thank you again for being a part of all this! I am so happy to see you here@ I hope you have a fabulous day! Hive on!!

What a long reply @dswigle. It is so much appreciated. That is why I want to share something new not ordinary marketing. I found it deserving of the @dswigle initiative.

Thank you for your wishes on my birthday. Among my friends, I am the oldest one, as their mother and they are also wondering why I look younger than my age 50.Its a gift of God. What matters about me most is what inside that makes everyone happy. Have a nice day my dear @dswigle and I appreciate you for reading our post. I noticed it even before.

Have a nice day too

Happy Birthday.

So many cakes. Obviously a lot of people think very highly of you. I'm guessing you do a lot of good for a whole lot of people.

I'm glad you have your whitey and there's no doubt he's glad for you.

I miss my mommy, too. Particularly at family time.

Thank you @bigtom13, Whitey celebrated with me and this month also he turned 1 year old.
I love people and they love me too.
