the little girl celebrated her 6th birthday yesterday. the occasion fell on a maundy thursday and weeks ahead, i already had it figured out that we'd just go to the mall, eat at a nice resto that she's never eaten in before, get her birthday cake and go shopping.
a lot of things did not fall into place though.
we realized a few days before that the car registration has expired at the end of march so we had to commute. well, we rode a cab.
it turned out that there were no malls open. metro manila was a ghost town every year during this time so what (the heck) were we thinking! so we directed the cab to go to nearby qc memorial circle where the hubby and i knew there were nice restos at least.
once there, most of the restos were CLOSED as well. how lucky can our birthday girl get?! i did not want to give up and not make her special day a fun day. hubby argued we should just go to a nearby mcdonald's or jollibee where he was sure the kids would have fun. but i was insistent that we go somewhere we don't usually go to. alas, we found a bacolod chicken inasal packed with people right beside the max's resto which was also closed.
so we ordered. and ended up not happy with the food either. the hubby cooks way, way better than what was served us.
i was frustrated as hell.
so we walked around under the trees while the kids tried to have fun. we watched some parkour guys practicing until somebody directed us to the kid' play area. that's when the F - U - N started.
