Celebrations & Occasions Food & Dining Kap & Me My Kids The GOppets

    Mother’s Day 2016 at High Street Cafe

    For Mother’s Day, I decided we 5 moms deserved to be pampered & treated to a sumptuous lunch buffet for our very special day. Aba, hindi biro ang maging nanay ha. Blood, sweat, tears, idagdag mo pa ang gut pati na ang kaluluwa! May kasabihan nga, “Mothers are God’s angels on earth”. Bow.

    Kap frowns on excessive spending, especially now that we’re renovating left & right and with a big-budget travel on the way –lakas talaga ng gastos, but this time I put my foot down. Minsan lang naman, I said. So in lieu of flowers & gifts, just make it a lunch celebration for us 5 moms I said. :) Hay salamat pumayag din!

    Pero syempre ang mga bagets, they would never let an occasion pass without giving me a surprise. <3 Nakalusot ang gift-giving kay Kap my Kap, trololol!

    They never fail to make every day special. Best kids ever! <3 Loving my new & shiny Pandora bracelet & charms, ang saya-saya na nilang tignan! They really spoil me. Thank you kids for giving me so much joy 365 days of the year. You guys are my sun, moon & star!

Puro kalokohan, never a dull moment with my kiddos. Thank you for the love gaize! And yes to answer your question.. AKO ANG ICING SA IBABAW NG CUPCAKE NYO! Walang iba. #notoboyfriends

    Together with the 2 lolas and my 2 SILs, the 5 mothers with entourage in tow happily met up at High Street Cafe in Shangri-La Fort for a yummy Mother’s Day celebration 2 weeks ago.

    Shangri-La has always been a home away from home, so we were very eager to try out the latest instalment at The Fort. Good thing I called to make a reservation 2 weeks in advance, booked through the roof!

    My fascination with chandeliers continues. If only we can make hotel-hopping (and dining) a weekly habit, I would be one very happy, one very hefty PIG!

    The pavillion is like one big mess hall with the buffet stations pushed to one side & the seats & tables on the other side.

    Unlike the other Shangri-La hotels, the staff here at High Street Cafe are less courteous & friendly though, I noticed. Look at the photos, wala talaga naka-smile even with a request & lambing coming from me. I hope it’s just due to a busy day. Service with a smile is always a plus, don’t you agree?

    Girls, ito ang pangarap ko para sa inyo.. ang makabingwit ng matabang isda! Matabang mataba! ;P Loved the fresh seafood spread over at High Street Cafe in Shangri-La Fort. Make sure you get a huge serving of scallops cooked in lemon butter sauce! Omnomnom.

    The buffet price at High Street Cafe in Shangri-La Fort is considerable lower than that of Circles at Shangri-La Makati. The spread & presentation is different too, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds. :)

    Shangri-La continues in strength in its desserts here at High Street Cafe. I would if I could.. ALL OF IT!

    Whenever I’m with company, I don’t get to eat much. Panay kasi ang kwentuhan. Lugi ako sa High Street Cafe this time around haha. I shall return! :P

    My sweet endings. There were juts too many people that day to fully enjoy my lunch. I suggest you give High Street Cafe some time to settle, and the hype to die down, before you visit for a relaxed lunch.

    Ooooops! May nangangapit-bahay! ;)) Mom must have missed the other half of her grandkids big time, panay ang lipat ng upuan at kalabit hahaha! ;))

    The kiddie table with the lola who can’t seem to stay put at our table. :)

    Ayan, nahuli ko rin! :P It’s really a challenge looking out for MIL & most especially Mom in their golden age. Ngayon naiintindihan ko na yung sinasabing “mahirap magpalaki ng magulang“. NPKHRP! NKKLK!

    Motherhood is a choice you make everyday to put someone else’s happiness & well-being ahead of your own. To teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is. And to forgive yourself over & over again for doing everything wrong. – Donna Bell
