Yesterday was Jojo’s 34th birthday. I really intend to
celebrate it with him that’s the reason why I applied for a vacation leave week before this day. I almost forgot that Jojo’s birthday is on March 29 and since I was not able to file for a vacation leave in advance, I asked my supervisor if he could have it plotted manually. Good thing, the manual PTO was granted. Anyways, we woke up at around 9am, still not decided where to celebrate his birthday… I browsed through the net and found this restaurant in Timog called Tramway Buffet that offers “eat all you can buffet” for only P205! I was able to find so many blogs giving positive feedback about this resto so we were excited to try it. The venue is just near our place so it’s not hard for us to locate it. Although it’s already 12 NN, the buffet table is still empty. The server said that there has been some minor problems earlier that’s why they opened late today. She said it would just take around ten to fifteen minutes of wait. So I took this opportunity to take some pictures of the birthday boy and the restaurant itself. The ambience is nice, a typical Chinese resto. It didn’t take long until the are was jampacked with hungry people. All of us are waiting for that moment the servers will fill the buffet table with sumptuous food. And so the much awaited time finally came, people
jampacked around the buffet table eagerly wanting to fill their plates with good food. Jojo fall in line ahead of me. I don’t want to lose our table only to realize that it has already marked for us…phew. Anyways, I was overwhelmed by the variety of food options…there’s corn soup for appetizer and viands like roasted chicken, steamed siomai, friend siomai, grilled fish, sweet and sour pork, omelet, tulya and California maki platter. Vegetable salad and desserts like fresh watermelon and papaya as well as buko pandan are plenty. I got full only after two servings…waaah! After about two hours of stay in the restaurant, the damage is only P448 for both of us. That includes the buffet charge and a coke in can. Superb!
I really enjoyed our lunch together and to celebrate this day, I want us to watch a movie together. Weve learned that there is a P15 movie shown in SM Centerpoint so we hurriedly went there to try it. The movie is entitled Killers by Charlize Terron and Ashton Kutcher. Unfortunately, half of the movie has already been shown when we came in. At the end of the movie, the security guard told us that it is only a “one time viewing”. Watda! We just went home disappointed but still laughing for that experience. At least, we’ve learned our lesson. We want to make this a habit so we would make sure we first call the SM hotline to know what the available movies are and what time would it start just to make sure. We thought of going to quiapo to buy some DVD’s but since were already sleepy and tired, decided to call it a day.
Thank you for this day Lord. I’ve never been so happy with our date as compared to this day. I’ve learned to enjoy my husbands company and enjoy discovering things together. Lord I hope you would give us a million of happy discovery moments together. Amen.
