Yesterday was a very special day for me and my family because not only did we celebrate Mother's Day, but we also celebrated my birthday. :)
We went to the mall quite early that day, and even if we were tempted to visit Mooon Cafe which opened just recently, we still went to Max's Restaurant because brother wanted us to use the Complimentary Voucher for Max's 4 Sharing Meals he received during one of their events. We had the choice which kind of sinigang we would like, and we all chose Sinigang na Salmon because it's a family favorite. To add to our feast, we also ordered a serving of Pansit Bihon (for long life) and a serving of Veggie Lumpia Bites - sister's favorite. We all had a great lunch.
One thing I loved about our meal - Max's Restaurant still let us use mom's Senior Citizen ID Card. At first we were thinking they might not allow it because we already used a voucher for the 4 Sharing Meal (Chicken, Rice, Sinigang, Iced Tea), but we still gave them the card just in case. We thought, there's no harm trying; if they won't allow us to use it, then so be it... but, they did let us use it! So... not only did we have the other meal for free, we also got a discount for the added dishes we ordered! :)
For dinner, we had typical birthday party food - spaghetti, lumpiang shanghai, cake, and ice cream. Yes, the cake was actually for Mother's Day, but to save money, we also used it as my birthday cake. I cooked the spaghetti and the lumpia, sister bought the cake.
32. I am officially out of the calendar, but I am very happy and thankful because not everybody can live up to that age, and I am now filled with much positivity and enthusiasm that this year will be my best year. :)
