Circles Makati Shangri-La Manila, Dad’s Day Out

Blessings come in many form, and they come unexpected. <3 Kap is a wonderful & loving dad & he deserves nothing but the very best. We wanted to treat him someplace special because Father’s Day is not a regular day. It’s one day in a year where we salute the man of the house, the head of the family (when the neck doesn’t interfere). It’s a day where we say “THANK YOU” for all the hard work, and “SORRY” for taking him for granted the rest of the 364 days. :P

We were overjoyed & blessed to have been able to take him to lunch at Circles Event Cafe in Makati Shangri-La Manila for Father’s Day. The Father in Heaven always takes delight in Kap because he is righteous & Godly. We have proven it time & again, even at his lowest, Kap always received blessings at the time he would need them the most & he would be able to surpass trials & hurdles because God will always get him out of a rut.

Our kids’ faith remain strong because Kap is a good leader. He walks by faith & not by sight, and our kids tread steadfast in the Lord because Kap walks the talk. From the time they were small, we never missed a day in church. Our weekly dates with God was a priority over anything else. And the rest of the 6 days we spend in fellowship & family prayer. If there is one advice that I can give you in choosing the man of your dreams, it would be to make sure he is a child of God. Because everything good & blessed follows.

There was a long queue when we got there at 12 noon. I guess everyone wanted to treat the men in life with the very best too! ;) Kap’s cute polo shirt up close.

Participating dads went home with a Makati Shangri-La Manila basketball jersey. Not bad. Woohoo team Shangri-La! <3

Time & again, I always say that the place is not important. It’s the people you are with that makes the grade. But hey, once in a while, eating grand ain’t bad, right? Thank you Makati Shangri-La Manila for the love. It’s one Father’s Day celebration we will always look back on with fondness & gratitude. <3

Kap tried this shoe on for size one time & the kids went back another day to buy it for him. Good kids, these children of mine. <3

We love you Honey. You will always be our KING. <3

God took the strength of a mountain, 
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun, 
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages, 
The power of the eagle’s flight,
The joy of a morning in spring, 
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity, 
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it … Dad
