so it was a monday and a holiday in our little country and the four of us -- the hubby, the little big man, the little girl and me -- went to dine out, for the heck of it. mainly coz we didn't have househelp during weekends and holidays and hubby didn't want to cook. and y'all know i don't.
so in our pambahay and tsinelas, we went al fresco at chow king -- a couple of hundred steps just outside our home.
migo had fever since sunday night but still had an appetite so we decided to get him one of his favorites, sweet and sour pork. no softdrinks, thank you. i'm proud of him that he is not into that.
julla was her usual self, trying her mighty best not to eat anything. i force fed her some siomai and tiny bits of pork with sweet and sour sauce mixed in with rice by bribing her that she won't get any lollipops tomorrow.
and their dad? well, he pretty much ate everything up just as he usually does. since i don't eat much during dinner, he gets to consume my share of the meal.
i like it that we have these simple feasts. it makes me secure that this little family is well-bonded and happy.
