Celebrations & Occasions Food & Dining My Kids The GOppets

The Century Seafood Restaurant. My Babyson’s 18th Birthday

Where do you want to spend your birthday babyson? “Anywhere mom” What do you want to eat for your birthday anak? “Anything mom” Aba, hindi naman pala mahirap pasayahin itong binata ko! Anything & anywhere, pwede sya! :P

Since my 2 eldest kids had school on a Saturday, we decided to meet up in Manila. After much prodding & prompting, my babyson said he wanted kalapati. Probably to get me off his back lang coz he ate only 1/2 of the order. Niloko ako. Anyway, ok lang basta hindi mahihilig sa mga kalapating mababa ang lipad! ;)

Hmnnnn. Kalapati. Chinese food. Manila. The waze in my brain led us to The Century Seafood Restaurant in Century Park Sheraton. It’s been ages since we ate there, binata at dalaga pa yata kami ni Kap. Perfect timing to visit with the giblings in tow.

The Century Seafood Restaurant

G/F  Century Park Hotel, 599 Pablo Ocampo Street, Roxas Blvd. Malate, Manila (02) 524-1821 ; (02) 528-8888


You know you’re in for authentic chinese food when the facade looks dressed down, teehee.



Because it was a weekend, a Saturday at that, I made a reservation. The place quickly filled up so I thanked my lucky stars for the forethought of calling ahead of time.



I miss eating lobsters. But Kap said no huhu. Love-sters nalang daw for our dessert. Sige na nga! ;)



The guy who stole my heart at 16 & never gave it back. :P Mr. telebebad!



I never thought we ordered a lot until one of my mom’s nurses commented during one of our meals “Ma’am, parang laging pyesta po sa inyo“. Nahiya naman tuloy ako hahaha! Halatang matatakaw kami! Madami ba? Sabaw, Baka, baboy, manok, seafood, gulay, pansit & kanin. The usual fare.



Ay. May dim sum pa nga pala. :)) Deep fried Taro Puff & Deep Fried Wanton. Yikes all that oil! @_@ I can feel my arteries clogging just by looking at this picture. Laging nasa huli ang pagsisisi noh?



Fresh Spinach Puree with Assorted Seafood Soup. Small 300 | Medium 450 | Large 600



Fried Pigeon. 2 birds. My babyson only ate 1/2. BAD!



Deep Fried Beef Brisket with Special Sauce.



Steamed Live Shrimps. Small 400 | Medium 600 | Large 800



Off the menu, seasonal veggies.



Cha Misua for looooooong life for my favorite son! <3



Sweet & Sour Pork. The best I’ve had. I promise you. <3 5 stars!



My babyson who just turned 18. Annoyingly cute. You will always be my baby no matter how old you get or how old you grow. Deal with it. :P



Our family is a circle of strength & love. And every crisis faced together makes the circle grow stronger. We have been through ups & downs, yet we remain standing & strong. This is God’s greatest blessing to me. The GOppets. <3

I read this somewhere & I’d like to share it with you. This is not mine, its author is unknown..




MURPHY’s LAW FOR MOTHERS: 1.) If you wear black, they will have a runny nose. 2.) If you wear white, they will have muddy hands. 3.) If you change their diaper, they will immediately poop in the new one. 4.) If you mop the floor, they will spill something. 5.) If you put on fresh socks, you will immediately step in whatever was spilled. 6.) If it is perfect, they will disarrange it for you. 7.) If you say it, they will contradict it. 8.) If it’s important, they will forget it. 9.) if you’re tired, they will not be. 10.) If you love them, they will see the beauty in it all & love you back forever.

My dear babyson, that is motherhood. Napakatigas ng ulo mo. At napaka-layas mo. And yet, I wouldn’t have you any other way. You are worth all that and more. I will always love you anak. I hope you had a happy birthday! :-*

    Oh, na-miss ko naman ang Century Seafood Resto. The last time I ate here was 2010 pa. Hehehe. I remembered the kalapati and the sea cucumbers and all the usual Chinese delicacies.

    Anyway, super relate naman po ako sa inyong post especially sa Mummy’s Favorite Sayings atMurphy’s Law for Mothers. Most of the sayings nasabi ko na ata sa aking little boy. He’s only 2 but he is very hyperactive. Nakikita ko na how he will be when he grows up. Sakit din ng ulo. Hehehe. Pero tama po kayo na no matter what, they will always be babies in a mother’s eyes.

    Belated Happy Birthday again po sa inyong GO-wapo! May he always be healthy, happy and safe and may he always be a doting son to you and a protector to his siblings. God bless po.
