Our Padilla clan got together to celebrate the birth anniversary of Lola Lily (+) on October 18. One of the best things Lola gave us is the strong family bonds. Even with such a big clan, we still come together regularly, WhatsApp and Viber each other all the time (24/7) and have great relationships among each other.
We got together at Todd English Food Hall in SM Aura one Sunday lunch. We used the upstairs function hall as we were 40 Padillas strong (and not complete yet, so imagine…). Nice place, interesting view of construction (a huge hole), some informal settlers and the cemetery on one side, and the customers of the restaurant on the other side.
The food was good. From the salad to the pizza to the chicken parmigiana burgers to the pork to the pasta. All served buffet style with beer / iced tea. I have to admit, I got a bit full after the pizza and burgers, but the pasta was not to be missed.
And the dessert. OMG. That’s what it is called, and that’s how it tasted. Chocolate upon chocolate upon chocolate. It was served in portions for sharing, but who wanted to share? 🙂
Happy birthday lola. We miss you.
