Daga

 

Some time ago, Auntie Babie sent over some chips to the house. I lost all self-control. 

I finished the whole bag in one sitting. 

This Lay's Kyushu Seaweed Potato Chips. VERY DANGEROUS STUFF.

I felt so guilty after I needed somebody to blame.

Of course, I blamed The Mother, who maliciously put the chips in my room.

Nathan Matthew's Christening

 

I've never flown a kite in my life before, and at 35 years old, this is the closest I'm gonna get.

In fact, I felt like a kite floating on cloud 9 looking at all these sweets at my nephew
Nathan Matthew's kite-themed christening party

Michelle Co, boss at The Creamery
I loved her pumpkin soup, caesar salad, barquillos con queso, and coffee jello shots (I had three!)

Rach and Lee prepared a very touching video documenting Nathan's first year. I wish I captured more of these precious moments, but I was also busy oohing and aawww-ing I couldn't do both. I suck at multi-tasking. Lol.

At the end of the video, Rach and Lee said, "Thank you, Nathan.
Just when we thought life couldn't get better, you proved us wrong."

Gloria Maris Greenhills, A Fifth Time ♥ ♥

 

DSC6531

 

 

You must be rolling your eyes at another Gloria Maris post. 

But we had three dishes this lunch that I never had in all my Gloria Maris meals before, thanks to my cousin Ryan who did the ordering.

I wanted to share them with you, but first, some GM staples that are oldies but goodies...

 

 

DSC6468

Prawns in Salted Egg 

 

 

DSC6469

Pumpkin and Almond Seafood Soup - always a crowd pleaser

 

 

DSC6476

Peking Duck
(This was probably on Cohen or Paleo)

Peking Duck, Carved

 

 

DSC6481

Taro Seafood and Spinach

 

  

DSC6488

Crispy Chicken

 

 

And the three new dishes:

 

DSC6484

Beef and Golden Mushrooms in Satay Sauce 
We never order beef at Gloria Maris because 5 out of 6 of our Fatterside aunties do not
eat the meat. This was so tender and the sauce was extremely tasty.

 

 

DSC6497

Deep Fried Fish
Again, we usually go for steamed fish so this was a revelation for me. The fish was fried 
to a crisp outside, yet remained soft and moist inside.

 

 

DSC6491

Noodles
I've never had them with rubber band before! Lol!  :D

 

Our server offered to change it but we figured the kitchen would just take out the rubber band anyway, so Ninang Adi decided to do it herself.

We're really not very fussy like that. Lol.

 Check out my cousin Monica's serving skills! She's even better than the restaurant staff!

 

 

DSC6501

Nice plating, too! Thanks, Mon! :) I never like getting food for myself because I always end up
dropping morsels on the lazy susan, on the table, in my tea cup, etc, etc, etc. 
I am not fussy, but I am definitely very clumsy. 

 

  

Our sleepy, puffy morning faces. We were all up very early and spent 3 hours at the temple for our Lola's anniversary.
