Birthday | Promos + Discounts + Freebies


Happy Birthday to Me!

Aside from several telltale signs of aging like strands of white hairs that grow at the center of my head (exactly where I part my hair, yes, that obvious!) and the need to remove my eyeglasses whenever I am in front of the computer or reading the newspaper, nothing else has changed. I still get excited like a kid whenever the month of May is just around the corner. People who are closest to me know that I celebrate my birthday not just once or twice. Actually, I celebrate the occasion with several group of friends throughout the entire month, no kidding!

This is me


 a fortysomething wife to a workaholic husband; and a mom to a very chatty and inquisitive five year old

In the midst of celebrating my birthday, I compiled a list of restaurants and hotels that offers promotions, discounts and perks that you can avail on your birth month. In the process, I even found a cosmetic counter that offers free eyebrow waxing with no purchase necessary!

Starbucks | Free Slice of Cake on your Birthday 

Starbucks Pistachio Dome Cake 

Creamy pistachio and white chocolate mousse over layers of Vanilla and Chocolate cake finished with whipped cream and chopped Pistachio nuts. 

Did you know that aside from earning Stars under the My Starbucks Rewards card, you can also receive one complimentary slice of cake (of your choice) upon purchase of any handcrafted beverage of any size including brewed Starbucks Reserve? You may redeem the benefit within sixty days after your birthday in any Starbucks branch nationwide.

Butao King Ramen
