It was my day off, and my parents were home since it’s a holiday. I just got last month’s paycheck and decided to treat them out to lunch at this fantastic dimsum place in Chinatown, a new discovery for me courtesy of Derek. I never had fresher, tastier dimsum in my life.
We basically wanted to try everything on the menu, so we did. Everything was made right in front of you and everything we had was fantastic. Pork, vegetable, mixed dimsums; fried, steamed, with soup and noodles; even the seafood omelet. We were stuffed, and it just cost me a little over a thousand pesos to take my parents out to a good meal. Quality time with them nowadays has been hard to come by, and sharing good food with them really hit the spot.
We went around the area and it was interesting to find out that my parents had their dates there. They were so nostalgic, and made me start to realize that time really can just pass by like a breeze. Everything could happen so fast, without us realizing it. I know I am in my last few years living with my folks; some even move out years before my age now. So I really want the most out of it, even just by having an afternoon like this every once in a while.
I was in a spoiling mood and I thought of buying my dog Bono a few pieces of steak to make up for lost time. I always have the tendency not to spend time with him because of work. He grew up so fast, without me noticing it - badly needs grooming too. Being too enthralled with work can really take you away from a lot of things.
