Once again it is my birthday and once again, we will eat at KIMPURA for dinner! It has actually been a tradition for me already to have my birthday dinner at my favorite Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant. My family may already be getting tired of it and there are more exciting restaurants out there. But we are eating at my favorite KIMPURA and that is final.
On my birthday actually, I was so worried because Pnoy wonderfully declared that Edsa and some streets will be closed due to the People Power Anniversary. Bollocks! That meant traffic jams here and there! Such was the horrendous traffic that morning that instead of going to Church and having our usual GLORIA MARIS birthday breakfast, we ended up in CIBO in Power plant Mall because our car did not budge at all! Que horror I know!
Good thing that the foodie gods understood my need to have my favorite on my birthday because by 4:00pm, the streets cleared up and it was easy peasy for the cars to go anywhere. Hooray! There you go!
Just goes on to show that if you drool about it, your wishes with come true.
With that, I know that KIMPURA and I are meant to be. Forever. He he he he he!

After dinner, the KIMPURA waiters surprised me with a birthday song!
AWWWWW you shouldn't have!
|Andrei: Mama, you're weird.|
I was so touched that I was crying and laughing at the same time!
Thanks for the surprise KIMPURA!
Yeah right. Surprise meaning I told them before hand that somebody is celebrating her birthday and that somebody is me.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
But I look good crying right??
Okay. Just so you know, I was fake crying OBVIOUSLY.
