Sunday Birthmonth Treats

My family always treats me for my Birthday month.  It was my Ate's turn today.  We went to Phoenix Court, Bellevue Hotel in Alabang.  I was with Gilly, Ate's daughter and Tita Portia.  The place was packed!

Our lunch menu:

Chilled Jellyfish with Century Egg & Honey Pork

 Assorted dumplings:
Steamed Prawn Dumpling

Steamed Mixed Vegetable Dumpling

Steamed Pork & Shrimp Siomai

Wintermelon Soup with Seafood

Hot & Sour Soup

Pan Fried Beef  Tenderloin Black Pepper

Sweet and Sour Fish Fillet

Sauteed Pork Rib with Barbecue Sauce

Braised Bean Curd with Chinese Mushroom and Oyster Sauce

Green Vegetables with two Kinds of Eggs

Sauteed Bokchoy with Garlic

Yang Chow Fried Rice

Chilled mango Sago

Almond Jelly

There was so much food, we were not able to finish the whole lot!  We went to Manila Memorial Cemetery in Sucat after lunch to visit my Dad and my Grandma whose death anniversaries fall on August and also to say hello to my Mom... my birthday moment with her.

You think my day was over?  Not by a long shot.  Tita Portia and I did not want to eat dinner at home so we went to our favorite Filipino restaurant, Mesa, Greenbelt 5.

Our usual fare, Prawns in Red Egg Sauce

Manga Salad

Inihaw na Liempo

Pork Sinigang in Guava and Pineapple.

I loved the soup!  A different kind of sinigang.  Again the serving was huge, good for 4-5 people.  This time I really could not finish it so I brought home a doggy bag!  Hahaha  Not for Wriggly but for myself.

You think I am done with my gastronomical indulgences already?   Well .... lastly... I bought a Twix Ice Cream Bar from Rustan's Greenbelt.

   AAAAhhhhh .... so good but so bad because it was so sweet.

I still have two more weekends to go before my birthday weekend and both are booked already with celebrations!!!  Hahahaha How can I ever look good in my two piece bikini when I go to Boracay for my REAL birthday, huh?????  BIG EVIL GRIN!!!  :D
