It is our tradition already to have birthday “salubong”, it means that we should wait for the 12 midnight and sing a birthday song to the celebrant with a cake. We make sure to buy the cake earlier and the celebrant should wait for the 12 midnight. So while we were waiting, we were watching TV or have some chit chat.
Most of us are wearing pajamas already because we are ready to sleep. It is just a very simple way of welcoming a New beginning.
To my dearest Xavier, Happy Birthday My Love! I wish you all the best in this world!
