I may be a little biased but that's because February has been really amazing for me. It gave me a lot of reasons to celebrate and with an amazing boyfriend, February officially became my FAVORITE month!
1. My birthday
Last year, my birthday was filled with so much love. I got 5 delicious cakes and had 3 different surprises from my friends. But that was when I celebrated my 20th. Now that I was on my 21st, I decided to celebrate it in an intimate way. However, Tim, being the sweet boyfriend that he is, still managed to surprise me despite my hints of not wanting one. He is stubborn that way.
He cooked for me as though his gift was not enough. It was his first time to cook a meal and he did it all by himself. His sister and brother were with me in cheering for him. I'm glad our cheers weren't put to waste because he did an amazing job! His Creamy Philly Pasta was really yummy.

It was my first time to officially celebrate an anniversary and I'm glad because it was with Tim. We celebrated it at the 16th Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Clark, Pampanga. All the ONGers went and as soon as my Finance test was over, we rushed to Fontana to spend the night with his family while the other half was at Mimosa. The boys were separated from the girls, of course, and Ate Jackie, Tim's cousin, was my roommate.
It was a day spent on buffets, hot air balloons and airplanes. The sky was clear at that time and the weather was perfect for flying.

3. Heart's Day
We don't celebrate Valentine's Day in my religion because we don't believe in the concept of saints such as St. Valentine. Regardless, Tim and I still had an amazing night. That day was no different from any other day but of course, the flowers made the whole thing special. He also got me ALL my favorite chocolates and snacks, which eventually led to an amazing picnic by the pool.

4. Last Hurrah!
We ended February with a BANG at the 2nd International Pyromusical Competition in MOA. We had a scrumptious buffet at Fish and Co. and had the most amazing time with my sister and Immi. That night, competing countries were China and France. China had nice, never-before-seen fireworks. Well, they should since fireworks originated from their country. France, on the other hand, had simple ones but their fireworks danced with the music. Both may have their own set of strengths and weaknesses, but it sure was fun watching these two countries perform.

Well, that's it for February. Now, I can't help but look forward to summer!
