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.

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.
We spent our last night in LA having dinner with friends at Thai Patio along Hollywood Boulevard. I know for a fact that Hubs really felt good having to be reunited with his cousins and friends. I also had the time of my life enjoying their company.
Photo opp before we head out to the airport. I had the grandest time during our short visit to the US. Thanks to the generosity and hospitality of all our families and friends. These people are the real treasures in life and nothing can beat that. Hope to be back soon!
I hope you all had the grandest weekend.
It’s Mother’s Day weekend and I would like to greet all the moms out there a “Happy Mother’s Day!” I hope you all enjoyed your mother’s day celebration.
Since we were not able to watch Iron Man 2 last weekend, we promised the kids that we will watch it this Saturday and we did. No matter how busy Saturday was for both hubs and me, we managed to squeeze in the movie. We could not afford to disappoint the kids twice
Nothing grand for Mother’s Day, we had a simple dinner at Mom’s house.
As a gift, we bought her a cake instead of roses. This is one of my favorite cakes from Red Ribbon,White Forest cake.
I hope everyone had a blast this weekend. If you want to join Pixelbug Weekend, just leave your link in the Linky Tools.
It’s MIL’s birthday and it was a mini reunion for my hubby’s family. Coming from a very small family, I truly appreciate gatherings like these where you get to touch base with your relatives. Honestly, I was not able to take a lot of photos because I was busy attending to visitors and because of the paralyzing heat.

Of course, the kids will always enjoy console games while the adults are chit-chatting
Here’s my youngest cousin-in-law, ain’t he cute?
Happy Birthday MIL!

I hope you all had a very good weekend.
We spent Earth Hour at our friends house. It was a welcome change from the usual stay at home since the kids get to enjoy the company of other kids and enjoy global action to change. It was like camping under the moonlight. Here are the kids enjoying the food as they await the lights off.
They played with glow sticks and ate all night long. It was truly an enjoyable night with close friends as we do it for a worthy cause.
Sunday was the day we celebrated my Mom’s birthday by checking in one of the nearby hotels. The kids had a blast as they go in for a dip in the pool with my sister.
We ended the night by having dinner at Arya Persian Restaurant.
To the greatest woman in my life… Happy, Happy Birthday! I LOVE YOU!

It’s the kids last week in school and that means exam week. Exam weekend is supposed to be dedicated to reviewing. Since I still personally tutor my son, I decided to make the review a week earlier in order to avoid cramming. That way he can still have some relaxation the day before the exam.
This Sunday we had lunch at my cousin-in-law’s house to celebrate the birthday of my hubby’s aunt. It was a simple family get-together.
As in any family gathering, it’s always nice to touch base with relatives and friends…
The kids get to play and bond with each other…
And of course feast on the scrumptious meal on the table as we all watch the Pacquiao-Clottey Fight. Congratulations, Pacman!

This weekend is a very special weekend as we celebrate two events in one day. Chinese New Year and Valentine’s both falling on the same date. Although, we are not Chinese, I am one in greeting our Chinese brothers, “Kung Hei Fat Choi!”
As for me and hubby, Valentine’s Day was never a big deal for us. Being married to a person who is not “as showy” when it comes to demonstrating his love and affection does not really bother me at all. I have come to accept my husband for whatever he is. The most important thing is that I know deep in my heart that he truly loves me.
However, as we heard mass this Sunday, our parish had a very cute way of celebrating Valentine’s Day. They called all the married coupled and conducted a “renewal of vows” ceremony. It was like getting married once again. How mushy can that be
“I renew my vow to you, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish till death do us part, according to God’s holy law.”
To my hubby (who I know seldom reads my blog posts), I would like to say “Thank You!” – for the love and respect you have showed me throughout our married life. For supporting in all my endeavors. For being my strength when I am down. For all that you are and all that you wish to be, I LOVE YOU!
I hope you all had a meaningful Valentine’s day! and Happy Chinese New Year!
