More birthday cake!

This morning my hubby singsong to me this words "how's my 43 wife doing"and the way he sings it makes me laugh and laugh it was so funny I enjoyed it. I told him I am 43 but feeling young and gorgeous!! Nothing change really it is only a number though I just feel so good about myself that never I have felt this way when I was in my 20's and 30's.


As always every Tuesday is our family brunch. We arrived a little bit late since we had to picked up my SIL and her husband at their house. It was snowing so hard it is like winter and not spring jeez I don't like to think that my birthday was snowing so hard, a year ago I was in the Philippines on my birthday enjoying the summer there. We arrived at the restaurant Deb, Tim, Fran, were there already, though not everybody are present because of the weather but still everything turns out fine I received some cards with gift card inside and this live plants called Campanula, a donut with 3 candles on top. It is so cute and colorful I couldn't help but eat it right away. Then came one of my SIL and her husband who brought another cake for me. They sing a birthday song for me hehe too old for that huh but they did so I blushed. They were so eager to hear my story about what happened in my interview how it goes and everything. They congratulated me on passing the citizenship interview I was so relieved too that everything was just so easy. I am so happy to be part of my husbands family they are just so loving and kind people. Never did I experienced any prejudices or hear negative words against me and because of that I am so thankful and considered blessed in so many ways. Hubby always told me you came to the right family and he is right!! Here are some of the pics taken this morning:

Hi Dhemz, I may not be perfect but if we have a good heart and good wishes to people it will come back to us a hundred fold.
Yes the flower is so pretty the name of this flower is Campanula and it is perennial so babalik ito every year which is a good thing since di ko feel bumili nang bulaklak every year ano sila hilo??? hahaha!!Sa ato kay pangayoon ra man nang bulak oi di man na paliton dire kay paliton man gyud mag sakit akong dughan ug akong bulsa! Mao nang ug naay mga friends nga mohatag ug bulak or dili na nila feel ilang mga bulak hala call me and I will be there hala hakot to the max ever gyud ko dayon hehehe.
Lagi another cake napod sus dili ra ba gyud ko palabi ug mga sweets kay what is sa idad nako karon ang diabetes ug high blood halaka atimanon gyud na hehe. Bitaw nahuman na gyud ko sa akong citizenship moments. Sayon ra kaayo dhemz ug pwede naka mo apply karon apply na kay basin ug momahal na pod nang ilang fee. And besides sus sayon ra kaayo mas lisod pa ang written drivers test naa pa gyud tong road test hoy didto gyud ko mura ug ready na mouli sa pinas di gyud man nako feel mag drive biya ha kay sa ato sa pilipinas sakay lang ko ug tricycle door to door delivery biya ko hahahaha.

Weng Forsgren said...

Happy b-day to you, kalami sa cake ang candle ba nindot mura gani ang came init pa hehe.

BTW......

Manang Kim,

Dili pwede mi mag join sa ako bana og file sa tax declaration oi,kay dri as long as naa kay income and if you own properties,stocks, funds etc( bsta naay tubo nga kailangan na ka magbayad). sa imoha jud name padulong inig tig declara na.The tax authority will send tax declaration papers direct to you for you t file.
Lahi sa ako, lahi pod sa ako bana, because we both earn money..pero dili mi pareha og anual income.
About real estate, I Own half and kay hubby is also half, both our names are in the legal paper. with that we must pay taxes too, individul not join . Lahi dri wa kay lusot, the government knows everythng how much you earned and how much you own.Pati savings they know.

About sa Kids,not all kids must file. Depende lang sa kids KIM.
If your kids have already income or if she/he have a properties na napangalan sa iya, then she/he must file for the tax declaration.Kung asa napangalan didto sa iya pdulong.or if you invest something that your kid owns it, pero kita parents ang nagdala kay bata pa gud, then ang declaration papers sa iya jud direct because iya man ang name.
Ana dri hehe.
maayo kay na refunan mo. unsa diay diha sa inyo kung mag file mo og tax join? one paper ra bisan lahi lahi mo og income? I don't hve any knowledge ani sa una,kaning file file.
Wa sad koy knowledge unsay patakaran sa lain cuntry bitaw no lahi lahi cguro ang county.

You had such wonderful birthday celebration surrounded by people who love you. I'm glad to hear that you passed your interview at the immigration bureau. Your inlaws seem to have really accepted you unconditionally. Praise the Lord for that. Happy Birthday again, Kim. May the Lord shower you always with all the blessings in the world. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

Happy Birthday Kim!stay healthy and happy and thanks for visiting my site.

Manang Kim said...

Hello weng,thanks for dropping by and the b-day greetings!

Bitaw no lahi2x gyud kada country though naay pagkapareha gamay. Like dire it is a choice sa couple if they file jointly or not labi na ug nag work ang both. And the kids here is a tax deduction until 18 years old, so kung daghan ug anak the more nga maayo hehe makadeduct man na if how much ang imong mabayad. Mao lagi na kay April na katapusan na sa pag-prepare ug tax. Yup nadawat na namo ang refund which is good pod biya malipay ra pod ta.

Manang Kim said...

Hello Shy, better late than never at all hehe. Salamat sa pag-greet ha I truely appreciate it.
