It seems like the day for everyone's most important woman was never an ordinary day in the Philippines. Last year, Mothers' Day was celebrated with a very important event in the Philippines - the National Election. This year, Mothers' Day was celebrated with another significant date for the Filipinos - Manny Pacquiao's victory.
Well, I, personally am not a naturally sweet person. I'm not as expressive as people think I am. I've never been the type who says "I love you" whenever we talk on the phone (we rarely even have phone conversations). I only told them "I love you" once, during a Youth for Christ event (which I think I was left with no choice since everyone was telling these words to their moms). I have never given my mom flowers or treated her to dinner or at least, gave her whatever on Mothers' Day. But, at least, I can say I'm a good son, and I love my mother.
This year, I'm just thankful that I was able to spend dinner with them - Mom, Dad, Gaile, my uncle Robin and Auntie Leah. Not my treat, but at least, I was able to have dinner with them on this special day. Dinner with them in a place where they don't usually go to. For a change, it was their turn to visit me and my brother in the city. Too bad, my brother was too tired and too lazy to get up and join us for dinner.
|So we had dinner at Jack's Loft Eastwood|
|Penne in Tomato Cream Sauce for me|
|Something for Mommy|
|Beef Tenderloin Stroganoff for Daddy|
|Sandwich for Gaile (and me)|
|Gaile enjoyed her Fishbowl Iced Tea|
|Okay, my sister needed help so I obliged.|
|Daddy and Mommy|
I actually don't get why we give so much importance to our moms during this day when in fact it should always be like this. Let's celebrate Mothers' Day everyday! :)
