Whoa. 39 years old. Hehehe. Despite it being his birthday, we had a normal Saturday: breakfast at home, late lunch at La Vista. Then we went home for a short nap, then mass at Pentecost. Japa figured he'd do a 2-for-1 mass to celebrate his birth day AND Sunday mass. Typical eh?
For dinner, we had texted family to join us. Originally, we were set to go to Pho Hoa, a Vietnamese restaurant in Eastwood. When I was in the middle of writing down appetizers for everyone, the manager approached me and told me that they had no credit card facility for the night...that I had to pay cash. O-o-o-kay. And I was salivating for some of the appetizers!!! Grrrrr! Needless to say, we left Pho Hoa in a huff.
And proceeded to our all -time fave and back up place for eating: Omakase! Hehehe. Rogan was literally jumping for joy on the way to the car from Pho Hoa. I got a text message from Robin saying "Yes! Thank you, Pho Hoa!" Told you it was an all-time family fave!
We were a noisy bunch at the restaurant. The poor diners had to endure our loudness and rambunctiousness all throughout dinner :) It did help that we were in a private room, although there was 1 poor family who had to sit through it all, hehehehe.
My gift? Nothing yet, although I have been planning to get Japa the new Sony A700 camera. It'll have to wait though, when someone comes home from the States. He also wants a forerunner GPS watch that measures his strides, and distance and other stuff for running. I have absolutely NO idea what it does! :)
Just one scrap today:
