one saturday, i decided to spend a one whole day with my family. so sabi ko 'cge tara bihis kayo. punta tayong mall'.
matagal ko ng hindi nakakasama yung family ko sa mall. oftentimes, i go to the mall with chris (my boyfriend) to relax, to enjoy, and to shop. sobrang dalang lang yung makasama ko ang family ko para makapasyal. maybe because, i'm already an adult and i wanted to spend my malling time with my boyfriend. or maybe because iwas gastos din because since i'm already working, i will be the one in charge of the gastos when we're at the mall. both of them were true. but this time, since mei pera ang family (fresh salary received and papang's commission with home cable) we decided to go out and enjoy ourselves.
we went to mall of asia because we're not often going there (kung sa robinson's or sa sm manila, masyado ng common ang ambience). we ate lunch (since me and erica haven't eaten our breakfast and lunch yet). we were undecided where to eat. una sa taste asia daw, tapos biglang sa yellow cab, and then pizza hut... finally, we decided to try something new. we decided to eat at a restaurant where we haven't tried its food yet. something new to our taste buds... and that led us to SAKAE RESTAURANT. its a japanese restaurant found at the second floor of mall of asia.
the restaurant's ambience is very cozy and comfortable. we decided to sit at their sofa-like chairs so we can eat and relax at the same time. sobrang natuwa kami ni erica sa moving table nila sa gitna where in nakalagay dun sa table na yun yung foods nila. tapos pag gusto mo yung food na yun, all you have to do is get that food. literary 'food ang lumalapit sayo'. hehe... nakakaaliw talaga... sana nakuhaan ko siya ng picture but i forgot eh.
food was ok. its like nabusog ako pero there's no special about it. but in all fairness, their food presentation is good. actually, not bad for a japanese restaurant.
after that, we decided to shop a bit (konti lang) we went to sm hypermart and ace hardware to buy some things (this was the time when i bought my veggie/fruits magnets. hehe...)
then (here's the best part), we decided to enjoy ourselves in powerstation's videoke booths. we rented one booth and there we sang more than 10 songs... just look at my family:
we enjoyed our videoke time together. but we haven't stopped there yet. Erica told us that there will be a free fireworks display at 7pm so we waited by the bay to watch this enticing fireworks display. here are some of my shots:
of course, i'm not contended with the unmoving and mute souveneirs of the fireworks so i decided to record some of it (^_^)
it was already past 9 but we were still full with what we have eaten on Sakae Resaurant so we just decided to sip a cup of coffee and have some cakes and pastries at starbucks ground floor, main mall (in front of pizza hut bistro)
over all, i had a really good time with my family. GREATEST time with my family. i was with them the whole day and we have a good, quality, bonding time together. i hope we could do that again some other time. (^_^)
