How did you celebrate Mother’s Day? Hubby treated me and my mom (and of course with the kids) in this newly opened Chinese restaurant in SM Taytay. My eldest brother tagged along since he also had some stuff to buy in SM Department Store. We arrived at the mall just in time for lunch and as expected there were lots of customers waiting for available table. While we’re on cue, the hostess gave their menu and asked for our order. Their foods were somehow the same with Super Bowl and since hubby and I usually dine in there (Gateway Branch), he immediately chose the foods that we knew my mom and kids will like.
Before, the only family restaurant you can see in SM Taytay is Max’s and Pizza Hut. And people usually lined up in them but last Sunday, the crowd was divided. In Red Palace, I noticed that most of their customers were chinky-eyed like hubby. (Now what am I expecting, it is a Chinese Restaurant after all) Hubby tried to order a mug of beer for him and my brother but the waiter said that liquor ban was currently up because of the election. With his dismay (and with me and my mom’s delight), he opted to order a can of Coke instead.
After feasting on the food, we went up to the department store because hubby said he will buy shoes for our kids. He went straight to his favorite brand of shoes, Florsheim. As expected, it cost way too much for me and my mom but hubby insisted that price doesn’t matter as long as it is durable and can be use for a long period of time. Well, I couldn’t agree more with his statement, because our kids’ shoes are still in good condition up to now and the only time I get to store it in their boxes are when the shoes doesn’t fit anymore. Some of my Erin’s shoes are getting near to her little sister’s shoe size while with my son; some of his cousins are waiting for them.
Noticed my Cien? She struggled with her uncle and insisted on getting down the floor to walk. (Few months from now, we expect her to be running along with her siblings by then).
