Graduation celebration at the Old Spaghetti House, Antipolo.

Congratulations, baby!

Andee graduated from the 6th grade at St. Scholastica's Academy.  Ganon talaga pala ang feeling.   You get teary-eyed all over again.  We had an early lunch before I brought her over to my favorite hairdresser, Dante, at Alter Image for her hair.  I just had to make sure that she feels special today.

At the ceremony, I called up the Old Spaghetti House (TOSH) along Sumulong Highway in Antipolo to confirm our appointment, and advise them that we'll be running a little late.  Good enough, when we arrived, we were escorted to their original restaurant just below Grilla, and we had the place all to ourselves.

We took advantage of ordering both from the menus of TOSH and Grilla. Andee and Diego opted for pasta (as usual).

Okay.. I forgot what this is now...

We also ordered Grilla's Family Barbeque Feast platter

And lastly for dessert, Grilla Smores.  A hit with the kids!

Pan de Amerikano merienda

Enrollment nanaman!

We started our day early.  Andee and Diego tagged along.  Was at St. Scho before 9am and finished fast.  We took a detour to Pan de Amerikano for a quick merienda before heading over to San Benildo for Diego's enrollment.

This has always been a favorite breakfast/ merienda hang-out whenever we had to go to Marikina Heights, or sometimes after shift for an early morning breakfast.  The kids love pasta and as expected, this is what they ordered.  I indulge in my favorite cornbeef pandesal with coffee.

While Andee and Diego were having a quick game of chess while waiting for our food, I can't help but admire the way this place looks.  Though I've been here a dozen times, it doesn't fail to leave me just sitting here and silently wishing I had a place like this.  Oh well.  Taya muna ako sa Lotto.
