I only have $15 extra in my wallet and hubby's birthday will be two days from today. That amount isn't enough for a party but party isn't necessary anyway. For sure it'll do for a decent family dinner. I didn't tell him about this 'coz I don't want him to expect for something that I am not sure what I can provide on his day. Once he told me, ever since in his childhood, there was no birthday cake, no celebration, so, when we started a life together, on his first birthday being a married man, I started providing for a birthday cake and a simple family dinner. It's all I can do to make him smile on his special day. This amount is very small but would you believe if I say this could afford a round chocolate birthday cake, special stir fried noodles (for long life ), mac and cheese, vegetable salad, shanghai rolls, and a roast chicken. Just right for a simple family dinner..

yep... i have listed all these and searched places on where to buy quality products with cheaper price, fortunately it can be found in one place so i don't have to set a budget for cab/jeep/bus fares.. .. and cooking is part of the effort coz home cook is better and cheaper than ready made food

the amount of money you spent on his birthday will never be as important as the deed itself, the preparation, the thought, the reason are more than enough for him to appreciate it and who would complain when you see "pancit" on your birthday
