The Red Tako by Makiyaki, SM Naga. January 27, 2011.
I went home to Bicol for my little sister's 9th birthday this year. I spent the whole weekend at home eating and having fun with my sisters. It was four days of quality time with my most beloved family. :)
Mom and Tito Rory fetched me from the airport. We went directly to SM Naga to buy candies for Danica's birthday lootbags.
Lunch at Molino, SM Naga, while Mom fixed Danica's lootbags. It was a working lunch for me too.
It was a Thursday so Danica had class. We went to her school to surprise her. She was happy to see me. :)
Danica's class. I've forgotten how rowdy kids can be. Hehe.
After class, we went to her doctor (where I fell asleep) to get her anti rabies shot because she got bitten by a cat a couple of days before. We went home to change for dinner after she got her injection.
She coudn't wait to open her gifts and begged not to wait till after dinner. She loved the shorts I got her and that skull shirt she requested. I also got her sungka and books. She can read faster now and she likes books with pictures.
We had a simple family dinner at Bob Marlin who offers the best (and i mean the best!) Crispy Pata in Naga City. I feel like I ate most of that sinful Crispy Pata. It was so tempting so I had to give in. So much for not eating rice. By the way, owner didn't charge us for that yummy Crispy Pata. Thanks Tita Cristy!
Family birthday dinner at Bob Marlin, Magsaysay Avenue Naga City. January 27, 2011.
We had Kare Kare, Blue Marlin (?), Crispy Pata, Grilled Squid and Shrimp/Chicken Basket. Yum!
Sisters and I had coffee at Starbucks after dinner. Had to wash off all the oily stuff with sweets.
Next day was a Friday, so sisters had classes. I slept until lunch and woke up to my Mom's cooking. Everytime I'd go home, I'd always request that she cook me my favorite tofu dish that only she can cook best. And what was awesome was, she also cooked liver steak, another fave. It felt so good to be home! :)

After lunch, I had a dentist appointment with Doc. Caramoan. Last time I went there (3mos ago) to have my teeth cleaned, she said I had to have 10 of my teeth fixed. So I scheduled the entire afternoon just for that. I had my mouth open for almost 3 hours. Almost had my jaws locked. Haha! But the result was awesome! No more cavities! Thanks Tita!
Me at the dentist's. Check out Danica's tats. Lookin like an ex-con. Haha!
After the dentist, mom treated us to Bigg's! I missed Bigg's. I loved their branch in Magsaysay. The interior was so inviting. I esp. loved the old cameras. And the frames were awesome!
We had burgers, fries and spag. Danica loved the yogurt. I can't wait for her to taste the yogurts here. :)
Blackmarket sold a lot of cool stuff at a slightly overpriced mark up, but that's because I've seen most of them in Divisoria.
Walking towards Miggy's we saw Kebob (in front of Bob Marlin's, beside Miggy's) and decided to try it out before going to Miggy's. We tried pita and kebob but after having 2 servings, we decided we were too full to eat more at Miggy's. We called it a night and went back to Avenue Plaza Hotel where mom was waiting to take us home.

After settling in and taking a hot bath, Danica and I went to SM Naga to see a movie. We took some photos in APH's hallways before going out of the hotel. Haha!
When we went to SM, no movie was going to start in the next hour so we bought the 7:30 pm tickets to Green Hornet. Meanwhile, we ate some Takoyaki from Red Tako and Jolly Hotdog from Jollibee in the food court.
The movie ended late but we still wanted to have dinner, so we decided to go to Miggy's since we weren't able to eat there the night before.
After dinner, we went back to the hotel for a lovely massage. Mom went first so I finished around 2am. It's been so long since I had a massage. Wish I could have one every week.
Had my nails done that afternoon.
My bestfriend, Che, is getting married soon and I had to get my measurements done by Jimbo Apostol, but his shop was closed when we went. Argh!
This is one of the best weekends I've had with my family. I miss you guys already!
**separate blogposts will be done for the restos we've eaten at. :)
