Oh-kay. Another mothers day post. I am not good at dividing topics for multiple posts so forgive me. Always a newbie (harhar!).
So, last Sunday was Mothers Day. Initially, we were planning to go to The Fort so that the little one can run around the grass and enjoy the water fountain. The plan changed because we were unable to persuade my mom to meet us there. Being the wonderful children we were (chos!), we fetched her and we went to ATC instead.
We chose Banapple for our food that day because they are a participating store for Good Housekeeping’s Mothers Day lootbag. True enough, we were able to get one by purchasing Php 1k worth of food. Babe and Ma got the Hickory Smoked Barbecued Country Ribs (Php 200), we got Jona the Fettuccine Jacintha (Php 185), while I chose Herbed Chicken Rolls with Basil Cream Sauce (Php 200). We also got desserts, Banoffee Pie, Fudgymudgymud Pie, and Hallow mallow s’mores pie (Php 110). Everything summed up to only Php1030, and considering that there were 4 adults, this is actually affordable.
Food verdict: The barbeque sauce was not too strong, the basil cream sauce was kind of “nakakaumay” if you don’t share, and the cakes were all heavenly. I really loved the crust and the classic banapple slice.
We rallied out and further in the mall with heavy tummies and with smiles on our faces.We then decided to go for a short stroll. This, we did not enjoy much as there were too many people in ATC. We stayed for a couple of minutes more, then we went to my mom’s house to rest.
Side Kwento: We went to Greenhills the day before to sell my dad-in-law’s laptop. We were able to sell it and we went home happy. It was also the same day that my team, Towers Watson SD, was supposed to have their GA. I really really wanted to go, kaso, I was thinking about doing the laundry first. To top that, I also wanted to tinker with my beads and make some bracelets for future sales. Anyway, I ended up sleeping mad as I was really hoping that I will get help with the laundry. I was only able to finish washing clothes at around 1AM. I was so tired, and mad, that I decided not to go and sleep na lang.
Anyway, going back to our Sunday, we left my mom’s place at around 9 PM. We really wanted to stay some more, kaya lang, the next day is a work day, thus, we need to head back home. Geoff immensely enjoyed the day (sobrang malanding bata! haha!), he really missed his mama lola.
