Yesterday was the Flying DaVinci’s birthday. I’m sure she won’t mind my late birthday post, since she knows how hectic life has been these past days.
After the sumptuous lunch (as always) in Dav’s home, the kids went swimming while the grownups went to the spa. Dav is a regular at Soneva Spa along Tomas Morato Street, Quezon City. She buys “by the card” – 10+1 one and a half-hour massage sessions with free honey facial for only Php4,900. We had a room for four all to ourselves. The honey facial was sweet; my face felt softer afterwards (plus it provided some glucose when I felt my tummy rumble… Joke!). The massage was wonderful – I could have fallen asleep. Could have, because group trips to the spa, I learned, are not meant for sleeping (especially when you’re going with family). Just as I was nearly dozing off, I heard the muffled buzz of a ringing cellphone. The Dav and hubby were also playing some cellphone game that they just couldn’t figure out. The point of no return (to sleep) came when someone farted and we were all jolted awake disgruntled. Though we were family, nobody still wanted to confess to the crime. All in all, the experience was fun!
Afterwards, we went to nearby Red Crab Restaurant for some serious dinner. We had, among others, Sinigang na Hipon sa Miso (great!), Szechuan Crab (wonderful!) and Fried Crab Claws (a bit overcooked – crab meat was dry).

My 2nd sis Petcat, moi, and birthday girl DaVinci
Happy Birthday, sis! You’ve come a long long way from the party-going college girl of days past to the wonderful mom and wife that you are now. Thank you for so generously sharing your blessings. Thank you for being a friend to me. I miss our days of scouring Dapitan Street like crazy shopaholics… Until our feet ache so much that we just have to get a foot massage before heading home… hehe.
You know this but let me tell you again: anytime you need me,I’m just here.Â Hugs and love,
