Had to wake up early to go to the supermarket to buy ingredients for the birthday celebration we are planning for Mom tomorrow. SM East Ortigas Supermarket opens early at 7am every day. So convenient for early shopping. When it comes to a simple celebration, we always prefer home-cooked meals. Sirloin steak, chicken lollipop, barbecue, baked potato marble and Filipino style spaghetti. When we celebrate birthdays at home, there is always Chines bihon (pansit) or spaghetti on the side. Yesterday, I cooked pansit for mom, for the two of us actually, had it for lunch and merienda.
I wanted to bake some cookies since I have those M & M baking bits given by a friend last week but I feel so lazy to jot down what to buy, maybe when Mom goes home, I will. We’ll just have store-bought cake for dessert. I haven’t done any baking lately, trying to avoid sugar and too much carb. I have been to my internist for my month follow-up check-up the other day. No more lab tests, thank God but my medicine for BP was changed to a higher dose. Though the doctor’s fee is free because of my JP Morgan health card, the cost of medicines is sky-high. I have to take four kinds of medications every day for I don’t know how long but I feel good. Gone are the earlier days of always making a mistake when I am in front of the computer blogging. My fingers are quite steady now.
I talked to Nate last night. He was shouting that we will see them again soon. Yes, they are coming over for lunch tomorrow. Nissa offered to cook spaghetti. When we cook spaghetti, it is not just from a can, we make sure that we buy fresh ingredients to go with it.
Looking forward to another family bonding.
