Food & Dining Kap & Me My Kids

Toho Antigua (and my Antigos)

Ever since my adoptive sister (cousin) got married, which was a couple of months ago, Mudra has been living alone with a helper for company. She has too much pride to want to live with me or my brother. She wants her independence so she refuses to live with either one of us.

If she were to live with me, then she’d have MIL for company & she won’t be so lonely. But no. :|

At 85, life can be sad if you don’t have anyone in your life. And most of all if you have no hobby. She doesn’t like watching movies or the telly. She can’t walk far in the mall because she’s so frail now. Her reading consists mostly of the Bible. She doesn’t eat out. So I really really feel so sad for her & we try to visit her as much as we can, but the kids get bored 30 minutes within stepping into her house. Walang wifi! :P #Lamna

So whenever we can, we take her along our foodtrips. Sa malalapit lang coz she doesn’t like sitting too long in one place -like the car, nababagot sya. Hay, so many restrictions.

One day we were all craving for White Chicken, or otherwise popularly known as Hainanese Chicken. And Kap knows the best (and cheapest) place to get those! At Toho Antigua. So off we went, the whole battalion.

We used to frequent the one in BF but Alvin (the owner) transferred his Las Pinas branch to the mall & has expanded to SM outlets. Once a resto branches out, nagiiba na ang quality of food & service.

Toho Antigua Restaurant

President Avenue, .B.F. Homes, Parañaque (02) 820-0668 to 69
Branches: SM Paranaque; SM South Mall (Las Pinas)

Which is what we realized when we went to the Toho Antigua SM Paranaque branch.Too late when we found out that they also have a branch in SM Southmall, lumayo pa kami! :P

Anyway. What we had..

And as we were paying, ang haba pa rin ng pila sa labas. Toho is really value for money. Magaling talaga si Kap pumili. :P

Have you noticed? Nawalan ako ng “bloom” at “sparkle”since I started working for the family company again ahuhuhu. It’s draining the life out of me, I swear. As I was editing my photos I noticed nawala yung happy glow ko & my smile doesn’t reach my eyes na. Mukhang pagoda cold wave lotion ever. Anubah.

O baka naman kasi 1.) hindi ko lang katabi si Kap my Kap. 2.) nakaka-stress ang mga mudra, 3.) Hindi ko type ang resto OR 4.) All of the above. Whatchathink? :P HELP. Saan nakakabili ng glow?

    Your mom pala po is the same age na as my grandma. Oo nga po, when they reach that age hindi na talaga mahilig maglalabas kasi frail na. Kung lumabas man talagang you have to wait for her kasi mabagal na sa lahat ng bagay. Bible na lang din at prayer books binabasa ng Lola ko. Kaya nga po she had the accident where she banged her head really bad kasi nagdadasal sa altar nila sa house then maglalagay ng sampaguita sa altar nang matumba at mabagok ang head.

    Anyway, I hope that with your stay at Vista Aplaya kahit overnight lang, you are able to feel refreshed and nakapag alis kayo ng stress… I hope you will be blooming na ulit… :)

    Hi, oo nga you look tired and harassed. But that’s fine, at least you are helping with the family business. But then, try to unwind.
    Regarding the kids getting bored for lack of wifi? well, i dont have any say on how you discipline your kids (but i know you raised them well) i just realized that youngsters nowadays are so dependent on wifi/gadgets that they can’t let go! and they are missing a lot like quality time spent with people who one day will no longer be there. i am sorry sobrang pakialamera ko.
