The celebration of two

There was no plan at all to celebrate daughter’s birthday. She was contented at home coz it was no work day and she was with her netbook and dvd’s. Thinking that we’re not going out to celebrate, I just cooked for her a little spaghetti and bought her a small birthday cake. She blew her candle and that’s it! Celebration is done. Or so I thought! I was wrong coz there was a call from Sil asking us to go out for dinner. She wants a combined celebration since she had just celebrated her birthday last Thursday, February 4. Daughter was more than glad agreeing to the idea. And so we headed to our usual dining place, the Emerald Restaurant in Roxas Blvd. Although far from our location, we all preferred that place for its good food. It was just us, her family and ours, though her's wasn't complete. Everyone seemed to have enjoyed the food we ordered, like steamed Lapu-lapu, Shrimp salad, fried chicken, pancit canton, corn soup with quail eggs, beef with broccolli. and some I forgot the name. As we were about to finish eating, I remembered I have my camera with me but the food were almost gone. Anyway, I was able to catch a few.


I love roses that I can't help but post this.

This is half of the bouquet she received from

a friend. It was as if it's mine that I was the

one who arranged them on flower vases while

daughter is watching by.


Her little birthday cake.


The simple spaghetti.


The 2nd round of yang chow fried rice.


This' what has remained of the steamed lapu-lapu.

The other dishes were nowhere to be found, (lol!)


The two celebrants seemed to have enjoyed their birthday celebration. It is all what matters after all!


To all of you, have a great start of the week!

Hello Beng Gee, many happy returns of the day to your daughter. Happy birthday. A birthday is just another 365 day trip around the sun, enjoy the trip, bring sunglasses, ha ha.

Hey! You look sensational in your new profile pic. Wow! Outstanding! For a moment I thought I was at wrong blog, ha ha.
Your hubby sure knows how to pick his women, *wink*.
Glad he was not where I was when young, or else our florists will retire early, ha ha.

Love that 'lapu lapu' fish....looks delicious.
I have heard of Roxas Dr. Guess it is a famous road in Manila, huh?
You stay young, stay beautiful and have a great week, Beng Gee, Mabuhay, Lee.

Just the way you described the dinner you had made me hungry! Makes me want to go to a Chinese restaurant tonight for dinner. I know it was doubly fun for you guys because it's a double celebration with family around. Right here, it's just my boy and me! Hahaha!

Good to know that your darling daughter's celebration ended with a great family gathering!
