TingTing's 21st Birthday at Marianos, Iligan

Last night, TingTing (owner of Christine & Co.) celebrated her 21st birthday with us, Kylie, Sol, Huey and me at Marianos.


We left house at six. And we waited for TingTing to fetch us at El Centro. Poor bday girl had to be our driver for the night.

I have this phobia of "first times" at restaurants because I am just too worried as to what to order (happens to me every time). I really don't want to be less satisfied. That's the reason why I prefer to go back to restos that I am already used to.

However, the people at Marianos are welcoming. And the food is just so awesome.

Group shot. Thanks to camera timer. 

We surprised TingTing with this cake and bouquet (obviously not in the photo) from her boyfriend, Vim, who happens to be in Cebu and can't be with her that night. We were expecting her to cry but we didn't get our expectations because she was shy to do so.

Let's move on to the food. I will try my best to remember the names.

Sol's Barbecued Pork Something. (I forgot) 

My Chicken Asparagus

Kylie's Chicken Fricassee

TingTing's and Huey's Beef Short Ribs
Creme Brulee
Mango Something. (I forgot)
And because food looks amazing, we just have to take individual photos. Lol! Excuse our vanity. Back to the food. It does not only look pleasing to the eyes. Delicious is even an understatement. I mean, the serving is just right for your tummy. It's not that much nor that less. After you eat your dessert, you will feel that the amount of your intake is just right. 

So, I recommend to everybody to get a dessert after the meal. ^___^ In addition, hot tea is amazing because they serve Twinings. Oh how I love Twinings. Hihi

TingTing's Creme Brulee served with bday greetings.

To TingTing, thanks for being with us on your birthday and for bringing us to the new resto in town. We effin loved it so much! ^__^ Happy birthday and may all your wishes come true. In your next birthday, we will all be bearing the title CPA. Amiiiiiin.
