Last week, Belinda asked me what I wanted to do for my 18th birthday. And I've never really been a big birthday party person. So I just responded with, "You know, I don't really care. You decide!" (Mostly since I loathe making decisions and I'm not picky) I honestly don't care. I'd be happy with seriously, anything we do!

So a couple of days ago, Belinda comes in with a sheet of paper with 3 options for my birthday. She told me I had to pick one ... Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!

It says:
1. FUN! Birthday. Dinner at T.G.I. Fridays and bowling at Mall of Asia
2. Gourmet Birthday. Dinner at Cafe Ysabel and Top Chef and snacks at guest house.
3. Shopping Birthday. Dinner at Chili's and shopping at Greenhills

Oh, the stress of turning eighteen. Making decisions!! AGH.

"Ohhhhhh I don't know!!!!!"

Eenie, meenie, miney, mo ... Ok fine, #2 it is!

Ally was making us laugh!! (And don't you just love my style?)

Cute =)

"Caw, caw!!"

"Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters"

The dinner behind curtain number 2, Cafe Ysabela. Such a lovely fancy meal out with the girls, Belinda, Aunty Lyn, Brianna, Daisy, Ally and Me.

Bri, Me and Aunty Lyn.


The beautiful Moffit girls! =)

My dinner. YUM!

A wanna-be artsy.

Aunty Lyn and Belinda.

Bri and her mango shake. "Brain freeze!!!"

So while Bri and I were eating our dinner, we noticed a girl dressed super fancy go into the restroom. While we wondered out loud why she was dressed so nice, Bri mentioned it was probably her 18th, since that's super big to celebrate here. So after our dinner, we went outside to leave and we saw her standing by the door in front of a sign that said "_____'s 18th birthday party June 4th, 7 pm" So we got to talking, and we realize that we both turned 18 on June 4th. We are twins!! YAY! I've been searching for my twin for so long. I always knew she existed. We're together at last. =)
After I got home tonight, I told my mom about my encounter with my twin. She made me laugh so hard I cried.... She said, "Oh hunny, I'm so sorry. I didn't want you have to find out this way. There's something your dad and I have been wanting to tell you"

I have a beautiful short Filipina twin!? How exactly does this work, mom?

Anyway, so I had a beautiful 18th birthday!! I couldn't have had a better day, thank you Belinda! Love you!!!


  1. Good photo story. And what a neat birthday to remember! That's my idea of fun.

  2. Great pictures! I'm so glad it was a special day!

  3. Now you're blogging! Great story, fun photos. Looks like uploading pictures must be easier in Manila than in the village. Keep it up.

    I'm so glad the girls are taking such good care of you over there. What fun. You have another present hopefully waiting for you in Mindanao. I sent you something in Bethany's box.

  4. It sounds like you have a great birthday event organizer in your people group. Glad you had a memorable 18th birthday!
