I'm sure you already know how much I love Mabuhay Palace. I highly recommend it to everyone who wants delicious out-of-the-box Chinese food in a tasteful and elegant setting.

We occupied the same private room where we celebrated Dad's birthday last year. See post here.
This is the cousins table.

We exiled the oldies to the other end of the room. Hee hee hee.

I have to say the service at Mabuhay Palace is excellent. The staff knows we are cake whores
and prepared already the plates and forks we need for our Operation Cake Rape later. :P

While waiting for the food, we munched on these delicious crispy wonton chips drizzled with honey

While some of us are cake whores, the others are camera whores.
This 10 to 15-minute practice is what I have to patiently deal with every dinner, every party,
before I can finally molest the cakes. Hurry up, will ya??? :P

 Being the most demure of all, Auntie Kiddie has a hard time blowing all her candles. 
Gwama and little Samara come to the rescue. I don't know what Achi Donna is so 
happy about, but... I JUST WANT TO EAT MY CAKE!!!!!
