My dad celebrated his 57th birthday yesterday. Apparently, my dad is quite famous and has a huge fan base already..in fact, every time I post a status update about him, I get a ton of hits on Facebook and Twitter! So for the WE LOVE JJ FANS CLUB members, here are some snippets from yesterday. My dad was up early on his birthday doing his usual gardening routine in his usual gardening get up— Tucked in, High Waisted, High Socks, Japanese Slippers. I made him some yummy Sugar Free Chocolate Chip pancakes for his birthday breakfast.
His only birthday request: CHAAAAYYYYNESE FOOOOOD!!! So we headed to Phoenix Court at the Bellevue Hotel for lunch and enjoyed an Eat-All-You-Frickin-Can Dimsum buffet. Check out the smile of my dad…kilig na kilig siya when the dumplings, siopaos and wantons came to our table! The buffet was quite good and reasonably priced at Php650 per head 🙂
After our dimsum gluttony, we headed back home and set up our surprise gift. We got my dad an Xbox and Kinect! Since the doctor has been ordering him to get more cardio in his daily routine, I thought this would be a fun way for him to exercise without having to spend for a gym membership. My dad loves it and is already planning “Dance Off Nights” for his friends and relatives. Nakanaman! Here we are dancing to a few songs. Hahaha 🙂 Zero flattering photos! Lahat may sablay!
This is what we’re getting my dad next week…FRUIT NINJA for Kinect!!!!! Woooohooooo!:) As most of you know, my dad is a Fruit Ninja Addict! I guess with all the work stress he encounters on a daily basis, it has become his way of unwinding. He’s been playing it on his IPAD for months and even resorts to sprinkling baby powder for extra “swiping powers”. Hopefully he doesn’t sprinkle baby powder on the Kinect or on the TV screen! Hahahaha!:)
Happy Birthday JJ! We love you Dad!!! 🙂
