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.

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?

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
“My wish for you. May God grant you always, a sunbeam to warm you. A moonbeam to charm you. An angel to protect you. Laughter to cheer you. Faithful friends around you. And whenever you pray, that heaven hears you.” <3

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! :-*
