Happy Birthday, Grandma!

Embedly Powered

We celebrated Mom’s birthday a day early, with a big family lunch at Vikings, SM North The Block.  Just like last year, Amir’s antics made it an even more fun and interesting lunch date. Hehe.

The party had the same attendees as last year: my parents, Alfred, Amir and his parents, with the addition of Eia, Diane’s sister. Except for Alfred and myself, it was everyone else’s first time at Vikings. We didn’t get to reserve a table in advance, but we only had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. Amir was under three feet and was in for free, which was a good thing because he hardly ate anything really. He did seem to have a lot of fun dancing to the waiters who sang happy birthday to all the celebrants. Before we left, he also had the chance to walk and run around the restaurant.

We all had food that we liked, nothing was wasted because everything tasted really good. We also got to talk about other buffets and agreed that Vikings is definitely a cut above the Kamayan/Dads/Saisaki buffet. The ambiance was also what one would expect from a hotel buffet area, except they didn’t have custom tablecloths with logo on them. The decor was nice and mostly elegant, and the chairs had nice upholstery.

It would have been a good time to take a complete family photo for my journal, but we didn’t get the time to do that before the table was cluttered with empty plates and glasses. After lunch, my brother took Diane and Eia for some school supply shopping, while Mom and Dad watched Amir. I finally got myself a bottle of Novuhair and some cold medicine for Alfred. Amir only stayed still while nibbling on some Mrs. Fields cookies, but he wasn’t even done with the second one when he got off the chair to run around again!

I had a really boring weekend, if not for today’s lunch. Sometimes though, boring is okay specially when you have colds, cough, and headaches. How was your weekend?

So you’ve been there to Vikings already. Too bad wifey is the only who got an invite last week and it was held at Vikings. She was really full that night and she enjoyed the foods. Me? Got hungry waiting… hahaha.

given the chance, i would definitely try vikings if i find myself in manila one of these days. my officemates from our manila site swear by it and they make it a point to eat there once in a month.

Thanks for giving your honest review about Vikings. I’m not a fan of buffets because I don’t eat that much. Takaw tingin lang ako and I easily get full because I eat quite slowly. But I’ll share this to my family :) Amir certainly makes everyone happy! Cute!

Belated Happy Birthday to your Mom! Haven’t tried Viking, too. I hope I can have a visit with my family, too. Amir is such a darling!
