The past Saturday was kind of special day for me. I was reminded I'm another year older. The many years that has been added to my life is obviously showing. Sometimes, I'm bothered by the lines that keep on showing upon my face. Well.. not too bothered anyway! I've accepted the fact that that’s how life goes.. grow old or you take the alternative, die young. Who won't be very grateful reaching this far?!
Hence, the celebration! We trouped to Subic at almost noontime on the day of my birthday with my own family, my sis', my MIL and SIL. As usual, I was armed again with another freebie from Metrodeal. Lol! This time I used Metrodeal's free credits to purchase the Overnight Stay for 8 promo deal offered by Forest View Leisure Residences, located in El Kabayo Rd., Subic Free Port Zone. I think the place, (like a small community) are remnants of the old US Navy housing but has been renovated and well maintained. I am impressed with the place. The unit we stayed has 3 big rooms and 2 TB. Every room has its own aircon unit including the living room and dining room. It is complete with furniture and appliances, even with cooking and imported dining utensils. The cool place is comfy and relaxing as it is surrounded by forests. We were even entertained watching sneaky little friends (known as monkeys) from the forest at the back yard. They keep climbing up our terrace awaiting for some food and other stuff they can grab from our terrace.
|We were supposed to have coffee on that table but these forest creatures drove us back inside the house.|
Come dinner time, it was Aristocrat Subic for the Birthday dinner. Just happy to have visited Aristocrat again. Oh wait, forgot to mention that sis' crabs and prawns are the usual hit. It was almost consumed to the last bit way before dinner time. And for our Sunday breakfast, I fried some marinated pork belly (for their consumption) and chicken. Then for lunch, we headed to Subic's Meat Shop but unfortunately, we arrived late coz the place was already jam packed with people. Sis led us to Marquee in Clark instead, and had lunch in Army Navy. Then that's where we split up from my sis' and her family and we turned back home.
