Warning: Quite a long post ahead. Please bear with me 🙂
We all had a fun time when we celebrated my brother’s birthday. It wasn’t only a fun day but a yummy day as well with all the delectable dishes that were laid down on the table 😉
My preparation began the day before his red-letter day. I went grocery shopping which made me feeling sick when I reached home. Sounds not fun at all yeah? 🙁
I am used to preparing everything when a member of the family celebrates their special day. I always want it to be something fun and special for them. Dining out at a fine restaurant was an option.
I actually didn’t planned something grand but since I have one menu that I want to experiment on, I overdid the grocery shopping and bought more than what I needed, LOL! It’s because I also want people at work to have a taste of my experimentation, hahahaha!
I was overly excited preparing the ingredients for my special menu. Can’t you see I am such a trying hard cook? LOL! This is the first time I am cooking this recipe. I have been keeping a close watch on the time to be able to finish everything before lunch so I could transport the prepared meal at work and at the same time, my brother’s celebration of his birthday for lunch.
Don’t laugh at me but this menu may just be ordinary to most of you especially to our Ilocano brothers and sisters but this one is my own version, LOL!
It ended up to be a grand cookout day, haha! We prepared other more recipes because of my Muslim subordinates who can’t eat my Dinakdakan menu. We also had honey glazed chicken, beef lumpia, kinilaw and grilled panga. Sounds so delish, aint right?
We finished everything right on time. The birthday celebrant and his friends had a feast on the foods that were laid down on the table.
The driver of the Boss picked me up at home since the meals for lunch are with me. Before I left for work, I instructed them to get some captures of the occasion while I was at work- for the blogs’ sake, LOL!
But lo and behold!
The celebration and fun didn’t end at lunch time. We went to dine out at a restaurant as originally planned. But since it was a Thursday, we all went first to attend the mid-week Worship Service. We attended at different locales. That only means we didn’t arrived together all at the same time at the restaurant. My SIL and I had to wait for about 30 minutes. I took the chance of posing for the cam while waiting for the rest of them, LOL! I obviously had fun 😉
When the rest of the gang arrived, it wasn’t too long till our orders were served. We all had a feast once more on the sumptuous meals we ordered. Being a seafood restaurant, we ordered crabs as the specialty of the house. Too bad we failed to click the shutter before the plate went empty, haha! We had kinilaw for the second time (they seem can’t get enough of it, hehe), pork and tuna sinigang, lechong kawali, beef brisket, T-bone steak, and fish fillet. All so good for the HBP, huh? 😉 I didn’t think of my diet that night. I just devoured my taste buds on the delicious foods laid down on the table. It definitely was a night of love affair with my belly relishing the good taste of food oh food! 🙂
I believe my brother had a blast especially when the crew of the restaurant began to sing their happy birthday greetings while we were in the middle of a good meal.
My brother looked so surprised! He was grinning from ear to ear. He had a black forest mini-cake.
I made sure his birthday won’t pass without him having a blow on the candle while muttering in silence his birthday wishes.
It wasn’t obvious in the photos that the crew handed out the cake to the wrong person by mistake, hahaha! It certainly was a fun night!
Lot’s of photos to boost! Go take a look for more:
We all had a grand time! It was a fun birthday celebration for my brother. It was made even special because he was able to celebrate the occasion with family and friends. The naughty boy however can’t help but wish the expenses for the occasion was converted to cash, hahahaha!
