April 5th + #Blogoversary + Giveaway!

This is a really late post because today was my birthday! That’s right, I am officially 30-something years old! Today is also my Blogoversay! Yes, my little spot on the interwebs is now 6 years old! Oh, and I just realized that I have over 30,000 views in total! OMG! THANK YOU SO MUCH, WORMIES! To new blog visitors and returning blog visitors thank you so, so much!

To celebrate, I am hosting a giveaway! TWO winners will be eligible to win any book (up to $20) from my recommendation list! Just visit my Adult Romance Recs, New Adult Book Recs, and YA Book Recs and pick any book from the list! This is also open internationally as long as Book Depository ships!

More on the giveaway below! ??

Anyway, I don’t do anything special for my birthday. When I’m in the Philippines, I usually throw a birthday party. Here in the US, my family just goes out for dinner. And of course, I curl up and read a good book to unwind after the long (exciting?) day!

Zeee Lunch

My coworkers took me out to lunch in Pasadena at one of our favorite Thai restaurants Saladang Song. I got my usual curry noodle soup and corn fritters! Nom nom nom

Zeee dinner


For dinner, my mom and I went to The Cheesecake Factory and had cheesecake… duh! Pierre is currently in the Gulf of Mexico but we were messaging each other throughout the day. Yeah, the foibles of a long distance relationship.

For fun, I also created a “How Well Do You Know Me” quiz! I did this a few years ago and it was fun looking at the answers!

    i go out with my friends and have dinner and then we go back to one of our houses and hang out.

  2. Grace

    I don’t do a lot for my b-day, just the regular family gathering. However, for that day I always buy myself a lot of ice cream. Crazy, I KNOW lol It’s like my personal tradition xD Happy birthday and happy anniversary for the blog!!!!!

    • Thank you, Grace! I love to eat ice cream, too! We used to have cake and ice cream for birthdays. But now, we usually just go out to dinner!

  3. Antonela

    Wooow, so many things to celebrate! Hope you had a lovely birthday, Ezrah! And of course, happy blogiversary! Six years is a long, long time! I wish you many more ♥
    How do I celebrate my birthday? Honestly, curling up and reading a good book is exactly my thing. I’m an introvert too, and I’m not a big fan of parties! But of course, cake is always there! ahahaha

  4. Kathy Davis

    First, I have to tell you that I enjoy your reviews, and I’m a historical romance fan. I celebrate my birthday with a treat, usually a brownie or a cookie.

  5. Ramona

    Happy belated birthday and blogoversary! We party a lot because me and my sister-in-law share our birthdays on the same day. We usually go on a trip.

    • Thanks, Christine! My husband was at work for my birthday, though. But we’ll celebrate again when he comes home at the end of this month! 🙂

  6. Reese

    Happy Birthday AND Blogoversary! my god, that must have been exciting, especially since turning 30 (I don’t pay much attention to my age, but it seems that 20s, 30s and so are The Big Ones, they somehow feel a bit different). Hope you had a great time.

    I don’t celebrate! I even try to get people not to mention it, so I just get a hug from my mom and maybe a couple emails. I’m just terribly awkward, shy and introverted – also a very weird individual all in all *shrugs*

    • I know how you feel, Reese. Ugh! Even if I don’t remember my age, I look at my nieces and nephews and they’re all grown up now!!

    • Congrats on the big 50! I prefer going out of town… nothing fancy, but at least do something that is not the usual 😀

  7. Cali W.

    Thanks for the giveaway and Happy blogoversary! And Happy late Birthday! I love celebrating my birthday with a walk on the beach. 🙂

  8. Caroline

    I don’t do a lot of birthday celebrations but I’ll usually treat myself to something

  9. Happy Birthday and blogoversary! You are still a baby compared to how old I am lol. I stumbled upon your blog a couple months ago but I got 4 out of 5 answers right lol. I don’t like to make a big fuss about my birthday. My birthday is close to July 4th so I always take time off from work, even if we don’t have anything planned. I’m happy with celebrating the day at a restaurant or with take out, so I don’t have to cook lol. I hope you had a great celebration. I wish you many more years of birthdays and of blogging fun!

    • Thank you, Kathy! I feel older, though! My kid cousins and nieces and nephews are all grown up now!! I would have taken a few days off, too . if my husband was here but we will probably go out of town when he comes home at the end of this month.. 🙂

      Also.. happy you got 4/5 answers right! ?

  10. Mary Preston

    2/5 – I should be ashamed of myself. Fun though.

    Birthdays are all about family and food for us. Gifts are good.

    • LOL, no worries! At least now you know a few things about me! 😀 Family is the best people to hang out with!

  11. Happy Blogoversary!!! Happy birthday, too!!! Usually I just go out to eat for my birthday, too. One year I tried getting together a few select friends to go indoor kart racing and all the ones who lived in my city backed out. I had one friend who drove 2 hours to celebrate with me. We ended up going bowling.

  12. Megan S.

    EEEPP! Happy birthday to yoooouu!
    For my b-day, I normally spend time with family 🙂

  13. _Sandra_

    Happy, happy, happy birthday and happy blogoversary!! ? I usually celebrate my birthday with family and friends, just eating cake and having fun. Sometimes I indulge myself with a trip abroad since I love traveling.
    Thank you for a generous giveaway!!

    • CAKE is always good! I was in the Philippines last year for my birthday and it was fun!! I love traveling, too and I wish I could travel more often!

  14. Anne

    Happy birthday and blogoversary! I don’t do anything special for my birthday. I might get myself a special sweet treat though. I occasionally go out to lunch on with family the weekend closest to my birthday. We just don’t do much for them any more since there are no kids in my family.

    • We don’t have kids in the family too but we try to go out.. my husband is currently at work so we didn’t go out of town.. maybe when he gets back we will go on a trip 🙂

  15. Danielle Hammelef

    I celebrate my birthday by first working out, then eating my favorite foods for lunch and dinner–sushi, noodles, and fish. I never cook dinner as this is my day off from “serving” my family. Congrats on your anniversary and happy birthday too!

  16. Silver

    Congrats for your blogoversary and happy belated birthday! For me, the best way to celebrate my birthday is eating homemade cake with my family 🙂
