It has been a tradition to me during my son’s birthday, I used to cooked different kinds of stir-fry noodles. It can be egg noodles, pancit canton, pancit bihon, glas noodle or sotanghon, palabok, or rice sticks. This year everybody got rice sticks with pancit canton. It was his 19th birthday today the 5th of January. We celebrated at home without guest, just the family. I don’t even got a chance to bake a cake for him. Because I’m sick. So we just bought a ready-made small cake from Merkur Supermarket for him. About my noodles everybody loves it eventhough I only mix a few shrimps and left over pork meat in it. Really a simple recipe but turn out good.

This was last year during his 18th birthday celebration. Again just the family no guest. We had many birthday celebrations behind us, during their kinder garden and elementary days. The so called “CHILDREN’S PARTY”!
Now a days they aren’t interested for those big parties. Just give them money and they are satisfied and happy. But I used to insist just a very small and simple celebration like this at home.
