One of the playdates the Princess had this summer was at DreamPlay, City of Dreams in Pasay. The first time we went there was on a school field trip, so we had limited time to explore.

Being one of the kids’ favorite weekend haunts, TGIFriday’s was really at the top of our list of the possible places for the Ball’s 3rd Birthday Thanksgiving. What was a bit tricky though was deciding which TGIFriday’s to go with. Truthfully, we inquired at four TGIFriday’s branches in the south of Manila, and we finally decided to go with TGIFriday’s in Evia.

The hubby usually pigs out when we eat out.  What I mean is, his orders usually just vary between pork ribs, pork chops, pork loin, or whatever else pork.  So when I heard about this place that opened up in Uptown Place Mall in BGC which declared they have the “Best Ribs in Town”, I just had to bring the fambam there so that hubby could judge for himself.
