Shakin' at Shakey's - How I Spent My Birthday

Today, I turn 49 and I don't really feel my age. Parang 48 pa rin ako, he he he. Anyway, my wife asked me what my plans are for this special day. I told her that I was not feeling well and would just like to attend mass at our neighborhood mall, SM Bicutan, have lunch and do our regular grocery shopping.

Since it was still early after the mass ended, we went to our friendly photo shop, Picture City, and had a family photo taken for posterity. The package for five shots with 20 wallet size photos and one 8 x 10 blow up picture cost us a whopping P150. Add another P20 to get a copy on a CD.

While waiting for the photos to be printed we went to the SM Department Store to buy some things that we needed. Afterwhich, the hard part comes: where to have lunch?

Since pizzas are my no. 1 comfort food and it was my birthday, I had a choice where to eat and as usual, we ended up at Shakey's because not only do they serve fun, they also serve pizza.

For drinks, we had rootbeer. Angel enjoyed pouring the drinks for us.

I ordered a chef salad with ranch dressing. The lettuce is served with ham, grated cheddar cheese, croutons and slices of hard boiled eggs. The serving was large enough to share for two. But since my two girls were not into veggies, I had to finish it myself.

We also ordered wings and rings: a mix of buffalo wings and calamari with fries. Dips include sweet chili sauce and ranch dressing. The two shared this order with me getting some calamari and fries once in a while.

Finally, we ordered a large pizza. However, my wife inquired about the Shakey's Supercard which cost P299. We asked what benefits do we get should we get a card and was told that for delivery, there is a buy one take one for pizza and for dine-in, we get a 10% discount and a large pizza on one's birthday. Since it was my birthday and a large pepperoni pizza costs P300, we decided to get one so the card paid for itself.

Before we could finish our lunch we asked the staff to take a photo of us.

After lunch and before doing our grocery, we picked up the photos from Picture City and this is it:

Actually, there are some more photos.

Next year, this man becomes a Golden Boy.
