22nd Pre-Birthday Celebration- Alabang Town Center, Music 21

After my chinese class in Binondo and lunch at Ersao, Denby and I went for a roadtrip to Alabang. We never had the chance to explore the south during our Saturdates since it's far away from our place. After 2 hrs of (his)driving and (my)sleeping, we finally reached Alabang Town Center. We strolled inside and checked out some stores. We then ended up in Timezone and played Stacker-which we failed to conquer. :(

My 22nd Birthday @ AMTI- Tong Yang and Purple Oven

This marks my first blog post. I have always wanted to start up my own blog before, and now that I have one, questions fill up my mind. What topic should I post first? How can I make my introduction? Where should I start?

                                 Now, I have decided to blog about my 22nd Birthday!!!

Last Friday (March 18, 2011), I arrived early at the office and caught Maita and Nikki decorating my desk with balloons. Posted on the wall were printouts that says " HAPPY BDAY KAYE!".  Talk about surprises. :)

For my birthday celebration,we decided to dine at Tong Yang Shabu-shabu and Grill at SM Megamall and avail their lunch promo of P399 for an unlimited shabu-shabu and grill experience. Their promo rate also comes with bottomless drinks.

We reserved a table for 10 and were taken to our seats at around 12:20PM. The waiter asked us for our choice of soup base first.
Choices for their soup stock were chicken, spicy and sinigang. We chose sinigang and spicy  for a hot and sour soup combination. Their sinigang was quite good but I was not a fan of the spicy.

After lunch, my office mates surprised me with a birthday cake from Purple Oven. The cake was called Pistachio Stardust(695). It had generous amount of pistachios sprinkled all over the cake. I never heard of Purple Oven before and I was really excited to try it out. But because we were all very full from our lunch, I just blew my cake and decided to take it home.
