I Am Just the Background

I posted this picture on Facebook , last Friday , tagging my daughter , saying , “I was just the background of the Mayon volcano” since it appears to be a selfie. She doesn’t like selfies being posted in FB that’s why , because she says “yaiks “ to selfies . My friends were confused why I said that I am just the background . And have to explain to them . Then , I saw my daughter shared this picture in her timeline saying “My mom, the prettiest woman. She doesn't even look 5_ years old. I love you forever Ma! “ I laughed out loud reading it and thanked her and commented it’s good she only said 5_ years old . Oh well, she made me swell with pride in my heart that she’s so proud of me . I am so proud of her too. Honestly , I always feel young at heart , I refuse to feel my old age . Do you too ?

I am now 33 but I am trapped on my teenage years! Haha! Maybe because I am the youngest and they treated me still as a child. haha! You do not look like 50s... It seems that you are only on your late 40s po.

How nice from your daughter to write something so sweet. My niece looking at me uses to say "you still have the face of a teenager", this is something that makes me happy. I also refuse to feel my old age.

I make us so happy when someone will say we look younger than our age . It's an achievement on our part because we really do some things to make us look younger .

@SIMPLYD I agree, I never stopped watching what I eat and drink to avoid to gain weight and I do everything I can not to look "old".

Thank you . Did you get why i have to say why i have to say i am the background not the Mayon volcano ? That's because i don't want my daughter to say i have taken a selfie again and she doesn't like selfie pictures .

Thank you . I think maybe it depends on the person . If a person is always happy even on simple things , it makes him /her feel and look young . And we Filipinos are generally happy and resilient people .

@Weng0909 But you know , i don't like to wear red . It's just that i bought it two years ago because our Christmas party's theme is red . Yes, that blouse is of two years ago . I very seldom use it . I used it this day because we attended the grand opening of a tenant here in the mall we manage .

You look beautiful in the red blouse! Actually the mountain does not really show up in the picture, does it? Maybe because of the sun light or something... But I remember from your other pictures that is where you get the view of the Mayon volcano...

Firstly, that was a nice picture of you and mayon volcano. Secondly, you sure must be so proud of your daughter. I mean, it is just rare for kids to be telling the world how proud they are of their parents.

Yes, indeed it made me so proud because my daughter isn't vocal with her praises . Thanks to FB because she now has an avenue to express it and it's for everyone of her friends to see . And haba ng hair ko ( i feel beautiful ) .
