First of Two Parts: Our Third Wedding Anniversary

Robert and I recently celebrated three years of an extraordinarily blessed married life! There is really so much to be thankful for. We always start a day like this by giving God the praise and gratitude He deserves.

We usually go on an out-of-town trip on personal celebrations. We decided to skip it on this occasion because we are set to attend a wedding in Boracay in exactly two weeks -- our first trip to the beach in more than two years!

Here are some of the things we did to celebrate our third.

Flowers, cards and gifts!













Lunch in Jade Palace (one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in Manila) with Tito Jojo and Tita Mari. This year, they will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary!




Steamed Shrimp Dumplings


Bird's Nest Soup


Hot Shrimp Salad (my favorite thing to order in Chinese restaurants)


Yang Chow Fried Rice


Chop Suey (the best in the city!)


Sweet and Sour Pork



Saw a vintage picture of my great-grandmother Dolores Earnshaw. My grandfather Ramon Earnshaw Sr. is seated at the right side of the photograph.



White Hat blueberry yogurt with cheesecake bites



Admired the beautiful Manila Bay sunset



Went to Legend Restaurant in Roxas Boulevard. Another awesome couple Lowell and Med invited us to dinner. They just celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary!








Lowell said they have the best peking duck. He was right!






Hot Shrimp Salad (I cannot get enough of this!)



We cherished every bite of the good Chinese food we consumed that day. But what we hold dear to our hearts is the advice these two couples have given us. Our marriage is going strong but we still have a whole lot to learn!

The next part of this anniversary blog will talk about what I have learned these past three years on being a wife. Till the next entry!
