Tramway Bayview Buffet

I forgot already when the Tramway Bayview Buffet opened along Roxas Boulevard (but I'm pretty sure it was after I had my second-born christened in 2010, because we still inquired from the Chinese restaurant that occupied that building then but opted for the cheaper Aristocrat packages). Hubby and I have always wanted to try going there and compare if it offered the affordable but quality buffet (like the one we enjoyed from Tramway Garden Buffet) but we realized we couldn't do buffets anymore. Haha.

But FIL chose the restaurant for his birthday dinner, and so we found ourselves revisiting old Tramway favorites.
I guess the cash only payment option would deter some people but hubs and I decided that this is a great option for celebrations like christenings because it's so cheap :)
I think there are slightly more options now (like, two kinds of soup, a salad bar, a pasta/noodle bar etc)
but the old favorites are there (unfortunately for me, I also can't eat a lot of pork anymore so I feasted on their pancit more, instead of the sweet and sour pork)
and yes, more dimsum!

Anyway... try Tramway Bayview Buffet if you want to be filled to bursting without making a huge dent on your wallets.

Possible Father's Day Gifts

I know that Mother's Day will be happening first before we celebrate our dads, but women generally have a harder time shopping for men because they are less vocal and specific about such things.

So, what are some great ideas for our beloved fathers and husbands?

For the working men, you can check out mens briefcase, belts and wallets aside from a wardrobe overhaul. Let's help them look snappy.
For the couch potato, you can get them external hard drives or cloud accounts to store all those movies in.

For the geeks, maybe a trip to the Dinosaur Island in Clark, Pampanga will tickle their fancy and re-awaken the child in them. That or a trip to the Mind Museum (who cares if you don't have kids).

For the hearty eaters, get them Groupon deals in the many buffet offerings in the city. Or take cooking classes and surprise him instead.

For the hubbies who have really been working so hard... and you feel they need a break... get him and one or two buds an overnight trip. A Pinatubo trek or wakeboarding stint at CamSur are sure to refresh.

Just steer clear of tools and mugs this coming Father's Day (not that there's anything wrong with those). Let's be more thoughtful for the men we love.

Music Lessons for Summer

The Waldorf mom in me thought that a digital recorder ( like a tascam dr-40 ) was a sort of electronic wind instrument and I even wondered what kind of sound it will produce, since I have only ever seen ones made from plastic and wood. My bad, hehe.

Most people will assume the right thing though, that it's something that can record sounds and it's portable and easily saved/accessed using computers.

Anyway, this leads me to the suggestion that music lessons and immersion in the art of sound won't be a bad way of spending the summer... or having your kids while away the summer heat. Get them guitar lessons, let them loose in bad practice and suggest new instruments. Just let them create and express themselves through music so that when school time comes again, they would have been refreshed.

And you just might find a new something to bond over.

After all, Dads can easily teach their fave songs from way back when to sons and daughters. Music with backstories... what could be more delightful?
