Before our flight back 2009, my family went to Tiendesitas for our despedida or farewell dinner. We were supposed to meet with hubs family but something unfortunate happened to my dad's brother. Uncle was rushed to the hospital and that same night too if I'm not mistaken, we lost him too. My mom and dad were torn between rushing to the hospital and the family dinner so they just decided to cancel the dinner with hubs' family, eat a quick dinner before we head home and mom and dad rushed to the hospital right after.

We had some chance to enjoy and play in an arcade before they received the call. You can even see form the photos that were having fun. Enjoy particularly enjoyed that Barn place with all the rides and fun stuff for kids. It's just right across where we ate and did some window shopping. Elisse was very happy to see the pets area, there were so many pets for sale. She watched the dog grooming was very much amazed that dogs do get "haircut" as she noted. There were many spoodles for sale Sydney and nice furry cats, even luckier that same night a dog show was being held. We watched a bit as mom was looking for a place to eat.

We had grilled fish, ginataang kuhol (snail in coconut sauce), bicol express (spicy pork in coconut sauce), grilled pork, mangoes, shrimp paste, salted egg with onions and tomatoes. Yummy! Seeing all these foods makes me crave for those! Oh well, it's nice to remember the old days. Next time around baby will be included in the photos, that's for sure.
