Weekend Footnotes

Belated Happy Chinese New Year! So how did you celebrate yours?

My family celebrated the Chinese New Year's Eve by having dinner at LiLi, the Chinese restaurant of Hyatt Manila. 

Of course, we couldn't resist having the two-way Peking Duck.  The second way was served on a bed of lettuce, which we barely touched because we were too full already so we just brought it home to enjoy as the next day's meal.

We didn't see the dragon dance, but we were visited by this "Chinese emperor" who went around giving treats to everyone.  He was actually carrying a tin can filled with thin wooden sticks, similar to the one they have in Chinese temples when you visit the Chinese fortune teller.  Our table got lucky and won a bottle of wine!

Look what my fortune cookie says.... looks like traveling will be done in the foreseeable future!!!
On Saturday, the SoMoms and SoKids were invited to attend the 20th Anniversary of Gingersnaps at the SMX of SM Aura Premier.  More about the #Gingersnapsat20 in a separate post.
After church last Sunday, lunch was at Kimukatsu the East Wing of Shangri-la Plaza.  They boast of their extremely juicy 25-layer pork cutlet.  We ordered the four-piece family set, and it came with unlimited rice, cabbage, miso soup, and Japanese pickles.

That's about my weekend!  Till the next one!:)
