It’s 2 out of 3 now!

Game on. Nica celebrated her birthday in Black Sheep last night. I must say, it’s one of the best restaurants I’ve been to yet.

For those of you who don’t know, Nica, Wong, and I have this annual thing to celebrate our birthdays in very classy restaurants. We have a minimum of 6k to spend for the celebration, but one can be creative on how it shall be spent. Wong had his at Tagaytay. He paid for our lodging at Canyon Woods and food at Sonia’s Garden. Nica, being fancy as she is, spent all the budget on Food, blocking the VIP area for ourselves. It was amazing. We were at the second floor of the loft looking restaurant, overlooking the basic goers haha just kidding.

The food was great! My favorite was the oyster with tapioca. It’s new to my tastebuds and it’s definitely something to try. My second favorite was the Foie Gras made of duck liver. Yum! But before you give your icky reactions to the food, the flavor was nowhere near Reno liver spread that you know. It’s sweet, and it melts in your mouth. In fact, it’s almost like the Ferrero Rocher chocolate balls, only better. There was also this cool technique on how one freezes the ice cream. The waiter used liquid nitrogen – he poured it to the liquid concoction, and created a smokey table. I initially thought it was dry ice, but then I realized, why? haha.


After the sumptuous dinner, we had our drinks. I got a glass of cranberry juice (since I don’t drink), and had mature conversations with everyone. Wait, by mature, I mean current events, careers, etc. Not the ones you probably had in mind. hahaha!

So yeah, overall it was amazing! This put pressure on me for my December dinner. Tough, but not impossible. Hah!

My friend officially booked reservations for her birthday dinner in July

I meant to share with you one of the big things I am excited about for next month. So basically, my friend is going to celebrate her birthday, and instead of throwing a party for everyone as what she has done in the past years, she decided to spend her funds in having an expensive dinner with just a few close friends. I don’t know what exactly made her change her mind. This plan was supposed to be for our Christmas dinner which we randomly discussed in one of our boring weekends. We thought about ourselves in coats, while the waiter pop the bottle of champagne and stuff. We were just laughing about it like a joke. A running thought to be further discussed. Until recently, she asked me if going on a formal dinner with me and another friend is a good idea. Of course, I answered yes! Anything that has exclusivity for me is definitely a go.

I’m glad I was chosen to be a part of this mature activity. For one, it’s going to be free. lol. Second, I haven’t gone to any fancy restaurants before, which has a dress code so it’s a good experience as well. I can imagine ourselves role playing like madam’s and sir’s! It’s gonna be a silly night for sure.

It got me thinking though, wouldn’t her other friends take it bitterly when they find out that they weren’t invited? I have actually done this when I threw my birthday party last year. I was only able to invite a few close friends due to lack of budget. I didn’t become a big issue, though. Besides, it should be the celebrant’s prerogative. Anyway, I hope everything goes well.

Well, I still have a few weeks to prepare for this. I was thinking of wearing a black turtle neck long sleeves, like what Steve Jobs used to wear. I don’t wanna look over or under-dressed. I just don’t know where I could buy that fits me well. Anyway, I’ll be making it a big issue in the coming weeks. Right now, I’m going to chill. It’s the FREAKING WEEKEND!
