A Special Night For Mika - Her JS Prom

I wasn't here last year when my daughter Mika attended her JS Prom. I was still working abroad that time and it's quite impossible for me to be here in the Philippines to witness every important milestone in the life of my kids.  What I do is, I normally choose the most important ones like the recognition days and graduation. It was kind of hard for an OFW like me to fulfill my obligation as a Mom since I have a career to look after. Nonetheless, I tried my best to assist them where possible like helping them in their school projects and research works which I could do online.  I also remembered to have written a declamation piece for my son when he was chosen to represent their school for a competition.  He won second place that time and I was just so proud being able to fulfill my role as a Mom assisting them in every way I can even we're miles apart.

I was truly sad that I was not here to witness Mika's prom in school last year but I took part in choosing the gown that she had worn that night, which I'm glad  to have fitted her well.

Mika at Ambyanz salon for her hairdo and make up. She looks quite excited!

I think she still looks like a baby even with her make up on

I'm glad that my son was able to compile his little sister's photos, at least I could still witness how did she look that evening.  I think everything was perfectly alright for her. Her dad and "kuya" were both beside her from the time that she had her make up until the time that she had worn her gown down to the party venue, but oopps, they did not join her there of course.  I'm very happy though that even when I'm not here that evening, everything works well with her.

I love her dearly and she knows that so well.

Sunday Lunch To Remember

For the nth time, we had our special Sunday lunch at home a.k.a. "Boodle Fight".  I requested hubby to have a repeat of the "boodle fight" experience we had during his last year's vacation. This is actually the kind of dishes that we truly love, everything grilled to perfection (lol).

Me and my son have one thing in common and that's our lope for sauces and dips.  Our meal at home or even at restaurants will never be complete without a number of sauces and dips lined on our table.  This just make our dining experience more pleasant and satisfying.  Hubby and daughter though don't share the same interest, they could have their meals even without dips at all and it's quite surprising especially for us who love sauces and dips that much. 

Hubby prepared everything from marinating, grilling, cutting the veggies and mangoes and even preparing the dips and sauces.  Everything on the table is yummy!

We actually had this kind of dishes from a restaurant at Harbor Point and mind you, a "boodle fight" package is not really cheap there.  You could really save a lot if you will just have these prepared at home and "one to sawa" pa. :)

This is one of those memorable Sunday lunches that we had at home last summer and hopefully, we could have it on a regular basis, why not?   Have you tried "boodle fight" at home, too?  How was the experience?
