Better late than never

Among two things, school has probably taken most of my time right now. Projects here, papers there, everyone's been too much preoccupied. Anyhow, I'm still extremely grateful for everything that has passed :) 

And I know it's LATE but here's how we celebrated the eve of the Chinese New Year and my mother's birthday at Claire De La Fuente's Grill and Restaurant. Yep, you read that right! It's basically one of the infamous singer's restaurants and it's located at Diosdado Macapagal Avenue near Seaside Boulevard in Pasay City.

While being so eager to fulfill my stomach's desires (MEHGANON), I waited first for the my relatives to look for our viands-in-mind's ingredients and after, made the people there at the restaurant cook for us. The food they prepared were somewhat salty but they were really good! :)

Imagine to our surprise when, while waiting, they had this dragon dance presentation! I was quite fascinated 'cos, despite my father being half-Chinese and all, it was my first time to watch one live! Well, maybe, that dragon dance at school was first but their dance was too far for me. Haha. 

That traditional Filipino birthday dish --- pancit! Pampahaba ng buhay!  

Buttered shrimps 

Sinabawang halaan. Para sosyal, seashells! Charot!

Steamed Lapu-Lapu with Oyster Sauce 

Tuna Belly!! Forever favorite :)

Inihaw na pusit

We had a really great time at the restaurant and the waitress who served us was so friendly, she even took photos of my family :D You guys should try this "dampa" experience over at Claire de la Fuente's Grill and Restaurant! Plus, I thought that it was really a nice sight to see other people coming together at the place. 

PS: I think I might go for a semi-hiatus and focus more on my very thrilled school life for now. T_T
