I am looking forward to my birthday. Only two weeks left and I will be twenty! We plan on celebrating my birthday by going to the beach. La Union, Philippines is the best place to look for great beaches as they offer resorts in cheap prices. My mom is the one who wants to go to the beach, because she says it will be healthy for Svet (my niece) and Elijah.
Getting a tanned skin is one of the things I am worrying about since I feel uncomfortable with a darker skin. I am contented now with how my skin looks and I don’t want it to be whiter or darker. I guess I’ll buy a Fedora hat for myself to prevent skin darkening while I am having fun in the sand.
I know my Elijah, Svet and my sister Lexene are very excited to swim. It will be Elijah’s very first time to swim. He was not able to do so when we went to a resort because he was just six months at that time. He will surely enjoy the beach and I can’t wait to see his reaction. I am going to buy lotion and swim rings for the four of us (the latter since I don’t know how to swim). And maybe hats, too, like a Panama Hat, for Elijah’s sun protection.
My birthday will also serve as a reunion for us because my cousin Karla and my sister Rikka with his son Hendrix are going too. I’m super excited now!
