Just before you turn two

My sweet Chloe Isabelle, In a few weeks you will turn 2 and I haven’t even shared how we celebrated your first birthday. You blew your 1st birthday candle in three different cities – Hong Kong, Manila and Davao.


We bought a Mango Creme Cake at Maxims Bakery in Hong Kong.

It was our last day in Hong Kong when you turned a 1 year old.

You were asleep when your Aunt’s and cousins left the hotel, they all kissed and wished you a happy birthday.

Mom, Dad and Kuya V sang you a Happy Birthday song during breakfast and you got to blow your candle just before we left the hotel.


Finally, we arrived in Manila before 12 midnight. We got home and a chcolate cake from Tita Badet was waiting for you to blow.

Hungry and tired, you still greeted every one with a shy smile.


We didn’t get to take a video or a nicer photo when Kuya V helped you blow the candles.

That special moment will always remain in hearts.


Two weeks after you turned 1, we flew to Davao.

Mama’s ‘cake sister’ Ate Pia made this beautiful cake for you.

Mita Elsa prepared a grand celebration for you and Kuya V (he’s moving up to Grade 1).


Birthday stage, dessert buffet and a table full of candies.


That night was full of fun activities: Party hosts, puppet show, giant bubble show and a magician.

You really didn’t understand what was happening.

The balloons were enough to make you smile.


Just before you turn 2 years old, always remember that

You are Daddy’s princess,

Kuya V’s best friend and

Mama’s baby.

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).


  1. That’s such a lovely post, what a wonderful way to remember your daughter’s birthday too, special memories. Hope she has a wonderful 2nd birthday #magicmoments
