Dear Mama,

We were able to celebrate your birthday yesterday. I let the kids go ahead while I bought some food and brought it to Nanay in Sta. Teresita so they could feel the celebration as well, then I met the kids at Marquee Mall.

We were there at around 3:30 p.m., since the buffet dinner will start at 5 p.m., we just roamed around the mall, looking for something buy. Ralph and his girlfriend bought some toys for their godchildren,  while Edgar and Angel bought personal stuff. You know, the kind of things that they do not really need but for some reason they think they do. Then we went to Timezone where they played table hockey. Angel actually wanted to sing in the KTV booth, Mama. Unfortunately, none was available then.

We then went to Yakimix, 10 minutes before 5 and just waited until they opened and called the names of those with reservations. What's funny was everyone was all gathering near the door, literally blocking the way, as if it was on a first come, first serve basis. When they started calling, of course, we were the first one to be called since I always make reservations one week in advance. 

The kids enjoyed the meal and the time spent there, Mama. Edgar, who was actually the one who requested that we go back to Yakimix, spent most of the time grilling food. Angel just ate some sushi and immediately started with the desserts. Ralph, well you know him Mama, almost everything. Since it was Marnelle's birthday (Ralph's girlfriend), the personnel there sang, and danced, happy birthday for her.

After Yakimix, we went to back to Timezone to see if there are already KTV boots available. Angel really wanted to sing, Mama. Fortunately, the big booths are already available then and they were able to sing a few songs. We spent almost an hour inside the booth, Mama. Angel wanted to stay longer but Ralph's card has insufficient balance already. Then we went home, Mama.

All in all, it was a great time. It's getting rare, and expensive, this bonding moments when the kids are all complete. Soon I know, it will become rarer, Mama. Edgar will be graduating next year, and then Angel will have her priorities. I'm already preparing myself, Mama.

Anyway, it was a great time. I wish you were with us. I miss you, Mama.

I love you.
