Gwama's 85th Birthday


IMG 2338

Every year we celebrate Gwama's birthday with a vegetarian banquet at Savory Escolta.
The theme is red, pink, hearts, ribbons… and Chinese New Year. Lol!

And every year we have the same red and gold cake tower. Promise!
See Gwama's 83rd Birthday here, and 84th Birthday here. This year she turns 85,
and still the same cake! Lol! The most-awaited part of the night for us cousins is
after the blowing of the candles when we fight over the lucky charms
and red ribbons containing our fortunes.  



As always, Auntie Lily prepares a delicious all-vegetarian feast for the Fatterside + guests.

She is getting better and better at this!

Savory doesn't have wine glasses so we had to make do with another kind of vessel.
It kinda killed the mood for us so we all ended up drinking fresh buko juice instead.
