I was feeling BLUE yesterday, Boo! :( And that’s very uncommon for jolly old me. My babyson begged & pleaded to be allowed to go to a 2-day retreat with his class until he was RED in the face (& I was PURPLE with rage). TWO WHOLE FRIGGIN’ DAYS! @_@ This is the first time he’s going to be away from my bosom for THAT long -I feel like I can’t breathe.. And that’s not being O.A. ha. I really feel that the air gets sucked out of me whenever the kids are away for far too long. They truly are the air I breathe! :'((
Initially, I was sticking to my guns of not allowing him to go even though ALL (and I mean ALL) his classmates were going. But ate (THE CULPRIT) talked me into letting my babyson go. >:( And once I said the “magic word”, I couldn’t take it back, to my chagrin. For days before his final departure, I’ve been going nuts with separation anxiety. I over packed his bags with emergency things he might need & thought of the worst possible scenarios! I would have packed the whole house if he’d let me, hehe!
|Very happy to get away from his mum! :(
Even my Jela is SAD. Look, naghatid pa talaga! :'((
But ate is right. My babyson is turning 15 years old. I can’t keep him tied to my apron this long. He’s a boy & I need to give him breathing space, room to grow & seek adventure -or he will surely resent me. My girls were easy, a little drama from momma & I get my way, securing them to my side whenever the topic of sleepovers come up. But my boy? Boy is he different! He can’t wait to get away from me. When I asked him WHY he felt he needed to go, he said “I NEED A CHANGE OF SCENERY”. Talaga lang ha? May ganon?!?
So my hunny arranged for an “outing” in MOA yesterday with our dear kuya Rolly & ate Marita so I don’t go crazy in my room, biting my fingernails to extinction -worse, texting & calling my babyson every hour. Even HE can sense I was sad & desperate haha. Fine, I told him.. I’ll do my CHRISTmas shopping then, that always takes away the blues. :P
|Happy passengers haha! :)|
|Yakimix, home of the cheapest buffet! :P
550 per person ONLY on weekdays, including bottomless drinks! m/
|We got there at 11 a.m. & they just opened, so the place wasn’t jam-packed at all.
A few minutes later though, a mad dash of people started coming in.
So much for peace & quiet haha.
|Sushi & Sashimi station|
|Dessert station.. I LOVED the leche flan. Ho-hum to the rest though.
And I enjoyed their ice cream bar assortments, I must have eaten 3 sticks haha.

I passed this & concentrated on the raw meats to cook at our table.
