Gwama’s Vegetarian Birthday at Savory Escolta

And this is why I need a walk-in closet-full of red clothes.

Just in the last 22 days, we wore red for New Year’s Eve, Auntie Kiddie’s Birthday and Mom’s Birthday. And today it’s Gwama’s Birthday. And then it will be Chinese New Year in a few days and then Valentine’s!

Red, Red, Red.

(Just kidding about Valentine’s. I wear black on that day to create illusion of thin. Ha!)

Even her picture is wearing red!

Every year on Gwama’s birthday, we go vegetarian. I don’t know why because she loves meat. You won’t find these dishes in Savory’s menu. They’re only for us, Savory babies. Smile
