My birthday cake specially made by Ate Fely Shumacher.
It's been quite a while since I had a birthday party- it was ten years ago right after getting my veterinary license.   

I didn't have the plan to celebrate this year, but my Titas in Port Wakefield organized something.  It was supposedly a surprise party but they failed to keep it, so I volunteered to procure a whole roasted pork.  Special thanks to my friends who are working in the piggery farm, we got the size we want at a lower price.  We didn't use a skewer but it turned up as an authentic Philippine lechon

It was a double celebration:  my birthday, and for getting the Australian citizenship this year!  Cheers!

The main dish.

Hogwarts-inspired dessert table.

The long table.

Happy Birthday, Doc!!!

Ang ganda naman ng lechon nyo. Papano nyo niluto yan ng hindi tinuhog?

Happy Birthday Doc RJ. Nakiki-happy birthday. I dunno if I have ever been to your blog before but this seems a truly different one. I guess I should update my blog's roll and add you up very soon. I like this place, so homey.

And the food, anak ng bakang dalaga, ang dami!

Hindi na nga po sya tinuhog, may apoy sa loob ng stainless oven, wala namang fan pero even and heat distribution. OKay din po ang resulta, malutong din naman po.
