Food & Dining My Kids

Crystal Jade Shanghai Delight (Greenhills)

My Baby girl LOVES Xiao Long Bao’s (on top of ramen & everything else haha!). So when she saw her Ninang Med’s instagram post with colorful XLB’s in Crystal Jade Shanghai Delight in Greenhills, she went gaga & begged to be taken there asap! ;)

For her birthday dinner, we were supposed to celebrate it at Cafe Jeepney of The Intercontinental Hotel, Manila. However, it coincided with the Candidates’ Forum for the Barangay election, ergo, her Daddy couldn’t be with us.

Me? I’m a stickler for dates. If my birthday falls on a certain day, I want it celebrated on that exact day. Not a day before, not a day after, and most certainly not a WEEK after. Gusto ko kung kailan talaga ako ipinanganak! I really make a big fuss. I don’t care what else is happening on that day, I want it made special because come on, how many times does a birthday or anniversary come in a year, right? I feel that it’s the ONE day in a year that people can sacrifice to make me feel wonderfully loved & appreciated. Many a tears have been shed (by me of course) because Kap is not sentimental. He’s a VERY practical person. Now? Natuto na ako. Keber na – I have learned to choose my battles wisely! Buti na lang talaga hindi nagmana sa akin ang mga dalaga ko! :P

My Lovey was so understanding & asked me to just re-schedule her family birthday celebration for another night. I have spoiled her in every way possible, but I’m so proud of the selfless & kind-hearted little lady that she is becoming. She’s no brat, that’s for sure. Where other little girls would be put out by a cancelled birthday dinner & even throw a tantrum, my Lovey was open-minded & gave way for the sake of her dad’s campaign. She could have made a fuss, but she didn’t. So her ate & I made sure she had the best birthday ever! ;)

We took her to Crystal Jade Shanghai Delight in Greenhills for her Xiao Long Bao birthday lunch last Wednesday. She deserved extra effort for her special day! <3

Crystal Jade BGC & Crystal Jade Shanghai Delight are sister companies, but the one in BGC is fine dining & doesn’t offer dimsum.

Another craving satisfied, yay! <3

This XLB assortment (229 php) comes in 5 different flavors: green (vegetable & dried beancurd), Lt. orange (shrimp), pink (spicy beef), yellow (cheese) Dk. orange (spicy chicken)

Here’s another take in a different angle. Sulitin ang pagpunta sa greenhills! ;))

They also had Black Truffle & Foie Gras which, of course, we had to try as well! :P Subukan lahat! Bigyan ng jacket! ;)

Foie Gras XLB 200 php/3 pcs.

Black Truffle XLB 200 php/3 pcs.

My Lovey’s favorite XLB turned out to be the Black Truffle. :)

What would my life be without my girls? <3 I hereby declare that all mommies MUST have at least 1 girl in her family! :) They ultimately grow up to be your bestest friend & companion.

Deep Fried Wonton 200 php/6 pcs.

Spicy & Sour Soup 180 php (not to be mistaken with SWEET & sour soup)

Spicy Beef & Mushroom 350 php

Crispy Chicken (1/2 order) 480 php. Must have! <3 The skin was truly crispy, and the meat so tender & juicy!

Broccoli Flower in Oyster sauce 280 php. Guess whose order! :P Yan lang ang kinain nya, grabe!

Yang Chow Fried Rice 280 php

Seafood Birthday Noodle, of course, for long life! ;) 300 php

Which my baby girl mixed & served to us! <3

My mango creme/pomelo sago 120 php

And of course, every birthday must be celebrated with a cake.. with wishing a top priority! ;) So we took her to Wildflour because we had a driver for the day & after so many faux pas it was time for a closure & move on haha. Tapusin na talaga once & for all ang Wildflour craving nya! @_@

Salted Chocolate Cake 175 php

Ham, Mushrooms, Poached Eggs, Bordelaise, Bearnaise
375.00

and gifts galore! ;)

We had a little side trip at The Royal Touch Cupcakes in SM Aura as I met up with a reader, CANDID VENTURA while the girls birthday-shopped. More on that in my scheduled post next wednesday! <3

Plus guess who else made extra effort to ensure the day ended with a bang, because my baby girl is just soooo loved!! :)

I hope you had a good day my baby. I know we weren’t complete as a family on your birthday, but ate & I did our best to make it one happy day for you.  And I will continue making it up to you until we can finally celebrate with Daddy & Kuya. Thank you for being so patient & understanding. We love you!! <3

PS: I would like to thank my darling ate for this beautiful badge that she made especially for my blog. Legit blogger na daw kasi ako so she gave me my very own badge which I am proudly displaying on the top right corner of my blog site! :) I love you sweetness, thank you so much for your huge support. It means a lot to me! <3
