Anyway, last Thursday (25 March), was a day to celebrate. In the morning, mom had her eye operation. Brother was with her, and since it was my sister's dayoff, too, we all decided to meet for lunch at the mall.
Thinking the operation will take just an hour and it was an out-patient procedure, sister and I went to the mall a little earlier so we can still roam around and check out things. As we walk along the Annex of the mall, we saw Crepes and Cream. Sister has been telling me that crepes has been her daily fix whenever she gets hungry, and because I still haven't eaten a crepe in my life, we figured we'd go and give it a try. I had the Crazy for Strawberries crepe, while she had the Mango one.
I loved my crepe! It was heavenly and very delicious! Well, I didn't like my sister's crepe... but that's because I am not a fan of the mango. :) Supposedly, this was our "desserts come first" thing, thinking that mom and brother would arrive any time. However, since it was mom's last operation, papers and documents have to be processed, and it took them quite a long time.
Sister and I then went to check shops, and by 3PM, mom and brother arrived. They already had their light lunch, and because sister and I were still full from the crepes, we just did grocery shopping first, and would just do early dinner aftewards.
Sister and I saw KKK restaurant earlier that day and liked how it looked. I told sister that I would want to have the family eat there when I celebrate my birthday in May, but when mom told that we could eat dinner anywhere we wanted, sister suggested this place.
We had Sisig ng Pampanga, Beef Kare-Kare, and Grilled Tuna Belly for dinner. All foods were delicious, and true enough their sisig has been one of the best I have tasted. Since we already ate here, I have to think of a different food place come my birthday. :)
And oh... despite my mom's negative vibes, her operation went really well. A few days before the operation, a neighbor told about an eye operation went wrong and she must've picked up the worry and carried it until her operation, and while eating dinner, she was telling something about something was different and it might be bad... but the next day, she felt really good and was relieved already. Now, her eyes are healing perfectly, and she will be back at work by the last week of April.
It's very rare now for the family to be complete, so for this day, we were all joyous. All praises to God for this great day!
