It’s very rare that my husband initiates an in invitation to go to the mall especially on a weekend and it’s usually a spontaneous invite, that’s why when he does, we should grab the opportunity. Who wouldn’t? An opportunity to shop courtesy of his budget…LOL!
After mass last Sunday (even tough I know there’ll lots of people in the mall), we headed out to Podium to have the boy’s hair cut and shop. That’s my boy with his big smile after buying a gift for their Yaya (househelp).
Of course, my daughter was the one who chose the gift….
That’s hubby checking out some architectural books at NBS.
And since we’re already there, we decided to watch TRON. Interesting movie but not quite my type.
Note: Pixelbug Weekend will be on Holiday Break starting next week. We’ll get back to posting our weekend next year January 10, 2011. So from my family to yours, I would like to greet each and every one a blessed Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. I wish you enjoy the rest of the Holiday season. God bless!
Sunday was spent at my Mom’s house, since it is a long weekend here in the Philippines (due to the Barangay Elections). At least, I do not have to worry that the kids need to go home early. Fortunately, it is also my sister’s birthday so the kids have all day to bond with their Tita.
My sis decided to treat us for dinner at Chef’s Table located at The Infinity Tower, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig. Chef’s Table is a dinner by reservation restaurant which serve Filipino cuisine with a twist. It’s the latest freestyle dining in the Metro.

Hubs and me…

I think it was a good choice that we decided to dine here. I only have three things to say: The place is cozy, the food is exquisite and the service is superb. I am always biased to good service, with all the restaurants sprouting like mushrooms in the Metro, good service will definitely give you an edge. At Chef’s Table, the waiters will make sure that you have everything you ordered and once in a while Chef Bruce will come to your table and ensure if you’re doing just fine. That’s what I call personal touch, which is an edge in terms of customer satisfaction.
Of course, no birthday celebration is complete without a birthday cake. I decided to give her Estrel’s Caramel cake which is just so temptingly delicious.
To my dear Sister: Happy, Happy Birthday! May the good Lord give you your heart’s desire. We love you!
I hope you all had a blast this weekend.
I just love weekends especially if there’s an event worth celebrating and of course, birthdays should always be remembered. Today, my hubby’s niece, who happens to be my gad-daughter too, celebrated her 7th birthday. It was a simple family gathering for my hubby’s side of the family. An event like this is always a good excuse for them to bond.
A family get-together like this is also a chance for my kids to bond with their cousins. It just makes me happy to see them have a good time. Especially since the kids do not have cousins on my side of the family.
Regardless of how simple it is, birthdays should always be celebrated because it is a way of thanksgiving for the gift of a beautiful life.
To our dear Alyssa, Happy Birthday! I wish you happiness and content, and continue to be a sweet child and bring joy to your family. We love you!

132/365 My own version of Chicken Teriyaki.
133/365 I prepared Chicken Hofan Noodles at my mom’s house for my siblings and for everyone to share.
134/365 Arcade Time! My son’s favorite past time. If he’s given the chance, he’ll definitely grab the opportunity.
135/365 While waiting for my boy to finish arcade, we chilled out and had coffee with my cousins-in-law and by the time we knew it, twas already 12midnight. I guess my boy had a blast! This was taken after his arcade time together with his Tita Tin’s pet, a golden retriever.
