Yesterday, November 5 hubby and I celebrated our 5th year together and counting. Five years ago it was the day that I officially said yes to him and we are officially in the relationship. We didn't eat in a fine dining restaurant or what have you. What I did was I cooked a meal for this celebration. I prepare Yang Chow fried rice, baked chicken and sautéed shrimp into tomato and arrange the table in a nice and presentable way. In all of the celebration there should always be a cake and so I baked my version of Almond-Chocó Chip Cake, this is also my gift to him since he loves chocolate and sweets.
Hubby went home around pass 9pm and hand me his present. I received a Philips mixer. I was surprised coz I didn't expect anything and I love the present. This is indeed a very helpful and I need this badly since I’m into baking now. I am learning how to bake such as cakes, cookies, bread and other pastries.
After eating we put the kids in bed and had our time together. Talking everything that runs in our mind from Obama winning the presidential election, sharing thoughts about hubby’s work, politics in the Philippines, why India has an entry in F1, some martial issues that makes a family tore apart, our future out of the country travel and etc. As in we spent three hours just merely talking and discussing things. That’s one of the things we want to do. Just simply talking, having a good conversation and I love every single bit of it!
Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.
