Mother's Day 2009 (late post)

Mother's Day this year (May 10) was celebrated in Tagaytay. We went there to pick up my sister who had just finished a 3-week annual seminar in Mendez and we had planned on spending with her the second to the last day of her stay in Manila (she lives in Iloilo). And so, being a Sunday, we first went to mass there in the church of Our Lady of Lourdes. After that, we headed straight to Leslie's for early lunch. It was great that we were there early for had we arrived a few minutes later, it would have been so hard for us to get a decent seat.

For lunch, we had the usual Bulalo. :-)

and a sinugba platter.

Here's Zoe and Tita Vel with the view of Taal Volcano.

With the singers in Leslie's entertaining us. In fairness, they sing well.

We decided to go home after lunch. But before heading down, we just had to pass by for some buko tarts and other goodies. We also went to buy a bunch of flowers for our mom to be brought to the cemetery.

At home, we just watched "Dream Girls" on DVD. Then we went to the cemetery to greet our Mom a happy mother's day. :-) For dinner, we had my sister's favorite sopas and fried porkchop.

It was a simple but memorable Mother's Day.
