Today, I can assume that celebrating father’s day is “mission accomplish” for us. We were able to visit and celebrate today’s occasion with almost all the “dads” in the family. Almost because my brother was not there, he have their company outing so he missed the celebration. too bad. :(
For a change, we were up early because we know that we will be out the whole day. My hubby and I got our long awaited cargo from dubai (which is not the main point). Our itinerary for the day is a really tiring one. We have to go to 3 places today to fulfill our plan. The 3 venues we had to celebrate Father’s day are quiet distant from each other.
To start, our first stop is to go to Himlayang Pilipino in Tandang Sora (I think), to visit Lolo Pedro (maternal grandfather) and Tito Henry (maternal uncle) at Himlayang Pilipino. Yes, they were with our Lord already. We paid them a visit because it’s father’s day and said our prayers. I know both of them are in a safer and peaceful place and that we should be really happy for them, but on occasions like this I can’t help but really feel sad and miss them terribly.
After the visit, we headed to our 2nd stop, Tempura Restaurant in Banawe and had our celebration of father’s day. Good thing we were there early for lunch, so we didn’t had to wait long. It’s a Japanese food, father’s day for us. =) We had our favorites (favorite food in General not really from this restaurant) sukiyaki, tempura, katsudon, gyu asupara maki. The sukiyaki and tempura was good. The katsudon was ok. (T.Boy’s version was better). Gyu asupara maki was great, the asparagus were crunchy. We tried also their chicken roulade which was realllly good. Haven’t tried their version of chicken roulade before, and it was surprisingly delicious. The best part of this is that we get to share and spend it with our loved ones.
And for our last stop, to visit Lolo Ben (Paternal Grandfather). It was suppose to be a surprise visit, but we wanted to make sure that Tita and my cousin were there also so we had no choice but to give her a call. Despite the supposed surprise visit and father’s day celebration with Lolo, I know that He is still surprise with the idea of us coming over. And seeing the happy look on his face, was just priceless. :) I really think we should do this often. And of course, coming over means a loooot of chikahan with my 2 Tita’s and kulitan with my cousin, Gerard. And a bonus call from my Ninang also. :)
After the tiring chikahan, we had merienda. I just love occasions like this because I get to eat my Tita’s pasta which is reaaaallly goood. Really something I look forward to having during any occasion. =) She prepared penne today and my-oh-my it was really perfect. :) Maybe if she didn’t run out of penne, I can eat a loooot more than expected. whooo..
This is just one amazing celebration. =) Hope that every father had a great celebration.
