never gets old

'Sup, guys?! I'm currently babysitting my nephew here in Rivercreek and while he's asleep, I'm giving you my attention, albeit divided. So.. Remember I told you I have more stories re: papi's birthday? Here it is!

The next day, we did what we originally planned and that's to visit our favorite church -- Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto. It will never, ever get old for us, I swear! I can't exactly tell what's so special with that church. Maybe it's the childhood memories, maybe the seclusion, maybe the calm no other church has, maybe the fact that it makes a good backdrop, or maybe it's simply one of the glues that stick our family together. I'll never know. But whatever that reason maybe, I'm pretty sure it's here to stay. And we're gonna be infinite. Okayyy, maybe that last line didn't make any sense at all. Haha! Just let me get away with it. :P

We got there around dinner time. Yess, that late! We quickly took photos outside 'cause it's already getting dark. We then proceeded inside the church to say our prayers and of course, thank the big Guy up there for papi's another year. He's already 64, by the way, and I know you will all agree when I say he doesn't look like it. Parang 63 lang noh? Hahaha! Kidding! We didn't stay long inside, well, as usual, 'cause papi never had enough patience to wait for a mass and actually finish it. Praying has always been enough of him. I'm sure He understands how non-conformist my father is. 

After church, we were supposed to head home and prepare a nice dinner when I {okaay, my brother and I} thought of a bright idea. We brought them to a 'posh' carinderia near the church. I've been there last year with my best friend and my brother frequents the place with his barkada. We assured them that their food is good but my mom was sooo hesitant. She was so funny; her interrogation was FBI-worthy. Haha! Nevertheless, we were able to convince her.

As soon as we got there, mama said the place was fine. Whew! Thank God there weren't boozing groups then or else, we could have backed out. We were also impressed with their menu. I didn't get to see it last time 'cause I was sick and the best friend ordered for me. It was her treat din kasi. But the ultimate reason why it passed my parents' standards was the fact that their food is good. Syempre naman noh, yun ang ipinunta namin dun eh! And I already said they like lutong bahay, right? I'm certain we will visit the place again. Like really soon.

Before we went home, we checked out the name of the place and it was.. Da Best! Hahaha! Medyo korni. But at least, the mystery of the century was finally revealed. Anyway, if you're near Grotto, check out Da Best. Hehehe. The best talaga sya. Haha! :P

Hahaha. Can see why you like the church! It really does look pretty. Kind of reminds me pa nga ng Big Ben sa London eh. Because of the structure and yung clock! :) Siguro next time when you get married confirm na sa list 'to ng churches noh? :P Hihihi.
