I love dining and good ambiance is one of the things I'm attracted to, most especially on special days and ocassions. I've celebrated my birthdays in quite a few places in here but yes, with lesser invites. I did the same thing, checking the place on google and then ask recommendations and feedback, visit... and finally decide.
Waterside Resort Restaurant is an ideal place in what I picture what my birthday this year should be. It's of private rooms and of course with karaoke. It is fun to sing and just experience music. Plus, the food is fine and I just so love the place, it's elegant and fascinating.
I've invited some of my coworkers and some Filipino friends. Many of my coworkers finish work after 8:30p.m. so I expected that many would be delayed. Like it will be of two groups, the early birds and those that will come later.
It was so funny, since the map is a bit confusing my guests had a hard time going to the venue. I even got confused myself how to get there as I just told the cab driver to send me to the place. The thing was, they too find it hard to locate! hahaha!
Anyway, I was glad many of my Filipino friends came and some of my coworkers. Some didn't make it but I appreciated of them letting me know that they couldn't make it that night through SMS. Made me say, I was right getting a smaller room anticipating the attendance.
That was also memorable having overseas calls for greetings from loved ones. It was a night I wanted to and it happened that way. It was all fun and if I had to choose to extend the time surely I would. My birthday indeed was a happy birthday, at least for me. :)
Finally, I thank the Lord for the blessings, the gift of family, friends, work and yes, LIFE. :)
