On May 14th I went over to Tabangao to meet Boyboy, who planned to celebrate his 22nd birthday at our resort. He brought his few closes friends with him. Krissy and her friend, Edmund, and Cy. It was fiesta here in Sampalukan, so the boat was fully packed for the trip across. Happily, the boat dropped us off right in front of the resort where we enjoyed a lunch of sinaing na tulingan before they took an afternoon nap.
At 3pm I woke them for a snack of stir fried noodles, fresh egg noodles which they enjoyed eating with gusto. Then they went swimming and snorkelling. After they returned from snorkelling they relaxed with some brandy and videoke, and while they were singing I prepared dinner of porkchop steak, meat cooked in tomato, pork sinigang and veggie salad and crabs.
At 6pm I served dinner for them. They loved the food, especially the crabs. When they finished their dinner, they
had an evening drink and when I wished them good night I left them watching the stars in the clear night sky.
The following day ws Boyboy's birthday, and I was not well. But with the help of JoJo in the kitchen we served a birthday meal of kare-kare, crispy pata, menudo, dinuguan, steamed crabs and grilled fish. They ate, sing along and drink.
For their evening entertainment they went to court for fiesta disco, where they hung out with the local people. They had fun drinking with them and dancing.
