My husband and I planned to treat mamu (my mother-in-law's popular name among relatives and friends) on Saturday but decided to have a little celebration today as well. I took an early quit at the office and went to the mall to buy a cake and lechon manok (roasted chicken) while my husband bought ice cream. At home I asked our house helper to cook some noodles, a.k.a pancit. Voila, we have something to feast on.

|A birthday won't be complete without pancit (Filipino style).|
|Rocky Road Cake from Red Ribbon ... hmmmmmmmm....yummy!|
|Nestle Rocky Road ice cream ... husband and I didn't have an arrangement but ended picking-up the same flavor for the ice cream and cake.|
|After two attempts, the children prompted to help their lola blew the candle out. "You're taking too long lola, we're anxious to take a big bite out of that cake."|
