A Spectacular Sunset And A Birthday Cheesecake Part Deux
After we got our much needed rest (if you can call making chismis as rest), it was time to go to dinner. We wanted to catch the last vestiges of daylight so we rushed off to our destination at around 5 p.m. The sunset at Manila Bay at this time of the year is said to be at its most beautiful and we didn’t want to pass up the chance to see it.
It was a concensus that we would have dinner at Makan Sutra at the Sunset Quay in Ocean Park. Aside from having a vantage point to watch the sun set, the food was also good. Singapore hawker style dining cannot be beat in my book. We got there early due to light traffic so some of the kids went to see the aquariums while the rest of us sat by the bar on the deck while watching the sunset.
When the last sliver of the sun finally went down it was our cue to eat. EAT!!!!
After having a hefty dinner it was time to go back to the hotel to rest. Plus we needed to get back by 8pm to catch the 50% off promo at the cake shop. We needed to stock up on cheesecake and banana bread. Really the best so far for us. Anyway, we got there on time and because my brother-in-law was feeling generous, he volunteered to buy an entire cheesecake so we could have dessert and coffee in the room. I asked for a candle so we could have a pretend birthday cake for Adi to cap the day.
Even without lighting the candle it was the perfect way to end Adi’s birthday. And after having our fill of cheesecake and coffee it was time to call it a day. We needed the energy for the swimming extravaganza in the morning. We’re now looking forward to Gaby’s 7th birthday…but that’s another story.
