My siblings have often chided me for having a lucky birth date because they’re not as fortunate. Celebrating my birthday on January 31st has its perks, the most important of which is it’s payday, so I always end up having some treats served for my special day. I even got the chance to invite friends over to our place for a little celebration. But we’re not well-off, so Goldilocks cakes are unheard of in our family until I reached college.

There’s a Goldilocks branch near UST, which my classmates frequented. Since I was living on a tight budget at that time, I would have to save some money from my already meager allowance, and that would take days, even weeks, just to be able to buy a decent meal from Goldilocks. That dream of savoring the delectable foods at Goldilocks seemed unreachable, however, as there were other things I needed to prioritize in school.

Xeroxing resource materials was one. I couldn’t buy all the required books for my course, so I had to photocopy the chapters that I needed to study for an exam. That’s where most of my allowance went. As days progressed, I gave up on my ultimate Goldilocks dream until one day when one of my best pals in college invited me for a snack at Goldilocks and I consented.

I don’t even remember if I had saved enough money for that or if she lent me money or if she insisted on footing the bill, but I do remember what heaven felt like the moment I relished my first ever Goldilocks product, their fresh lumpia. I took my sweet time consuming this delightful treat.

Of course, I didn’t show my friend that it was my first time at Goldilocks nor did I give a hint that I was head over heels in love with what I was having for merienda. I hope she never took notice of my mixed emotions at that time. Since then, I have become a loyal Goldilocks patron. As a matter of fact, my son always celebrates his birthday with a Goldilocks cake.


You’re the 1, Goldilocks, because you made me realize that dreams can come true, and if I wait for the right time, I can have a taste of heaven on earth.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
