It's My Mother-in-law's Birthday

It's my mother-in-law's 79th birthday today.  Happy Birthday mamu, we love you and we wish you more birthdays to come. 

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."
