Tonight, we sends my husband to the airport, we supposed to have our dinner there with him but we found out it was so expensive so we just ordered some smoothies instead. We decided to eat with kids in the restaurant while my husband is boarding for his flight in Manila. My niece Mariel went to the restaurant ahead of us since she was not able to go with us in the airport, she still have a class she would be out at 6 p.m., and my husband have to arrive in the airport at 7:00 p.m.
Mariel just waited for us in the restaurant though, she ordered some good foods enough for Faith to forget her being upset to say goodbye once again to her father. It was so traffic along the way so I opted to take the Diversion road even it was already too dark. It was tired but the tiredness was gone when I have our dinner finally. I wonder what dinner that my husband took in the airport.
What to prepare for dinner? I always have this kind of question everyday, since I am the one or my nieces would cook for dinner. It is so tempting to just order outside but it can be costly too while we have frozen meats in the refrigerator that we can cook. Faith just finishes her Corn Flakes, yes Corn Flakes this time not the famous KoKo Crunch. We went to the nearby grocery store and we bought some foods, including a 1 kilo of rice, Faith’s snacks at school, dish washing and etc., etc. I thought to grocery shop more today but I did not pursue it. I had my door glass finally fix now and I paid the money that supposedly for grocery shopping or for the Kumon fee.
And so here I am wondering what I should cook for dinner, we still have the Sinigang Fish from last night, I just heat it to our Microwave Oven and it is still not spoiled until now. What should I match the soup, a fried chicken or a chicken soup or the sauté Pancit with cube meats. I am having a hard time but the most important thing is that the soup fish should be consume before it will get spoiled.
We were in this restaurant eating our dinner when I heard a very very cool voice from singer of a band who was performing that night. I am not sure though if the band uses an electro-voice microphones, oh well the microphone enhances the voice of a singer that means if she already have a nice voice then the microphone could bring out more the best in her if she used that microphone. On the other hand, I really had a fine dinner at that night with my friend; the music added the ambiance inside the restaurant. I am sure to get back there again with my family maybe next week on my daughter’s birthday.
When the kids joined the trick or treat inside the village, one of the staffs told my sister that if we could join their small gatherings on October 30, they will be telling us about the plan for putting up a small chapel for the village. Small gatherings would we have to bring foods in the clubhouse and together with other members we are going to eat our dinner after the prayer. My sister prepared the Kinilaw Malasugue and Fried Chicken, right after Faith’s school. I was not able to help the preparation because I was so sleepy from sleeping late last night. I am always thankful that my sister is here for us ready to assists anytime. So after she prepared for our foods, the kids change their clothes and off we went to the clubhouse with our “Baon“. The gathering started with the procession of our “Virgin Mary” around the village. The staffs put some candles in the floor and lit it just before the holy rosary started.
Right after the prayer was finished the President explained the costing of the chapel. He said that the chapel flooring area is 150 sqm, and to put up a chapel, the expenses will be up to P450, 000. If we assumed that the members are up to 150, each house could donate P3, 000 pesos per sqm but if P3, 000 is too heavy for us then they can divide it for 3 years since it could take 3 years to put up a chapel that we desired. The members agreed with the costing of the chapel and since the kids were already hungry, right after the President signaled for a go sign that we could now eat; the kids hurriedly went to get some foods.
It was a nice gathering for all the residents here in our village, the kids had so much fun running around the ground. I was able to know some neighbors whom I didn’t know before. My sister who lives in Phase 1 was also there; she was able to introduce me to some of her friends. The foods were share so we don’t only have kinilaw and fried chicken in our table but a lot more. We even brought a sweet Pineapple and Banana back to our house from one of the members in the clubhouse, so even though we did not go out today yesterday and Mj and I were already bored staying in the house the whole day, in the latter we smiled our might for seeing different things around us and not only the water in the pool as we always face that everyday in our lives. Today, we will be going out again for Kumon session and training, I will also shop for foods for the upcoming All Souls Day.
