K: “Hello, what’s your name?”
M: “Uhm, you don’t ask the customer’s name, honey. You’ll greet them first. You’ll say, how are you today?”
K: “Oh. How are you today, ma’m?”
M: “Very well thank you. How about you?”
K: “I’m good, thank you.”
M: “Then you’ll say, what would you like to drink?- Then put the menu in front of the customer on the table.”
K” “What would like to drink? Ah, we don’t have a menu because this is a fancy restaurant. I memorize all the orders.”
Darling daughter and I were playing restaurant last night. She was the server and I was the customer. I like it when she uses her imagination. It helps her develop good judgement, I think. It’s always fun playing with kids, you know. You will learn lots of things with them that sometimes you’ll get speechless. 🙂
The Diner is closed. Do not enter. 🙂
First it was two years. Then it’s two months. Now it’s two days. Wow! It’s almost time for our vacation.
It takes about two years for us to plan and save for a long family vacation. Yes it does because in this life, you never know what will come up and what priorities will be. Sometimes you have to set aside the travel plans because there is much more important thing to deal with in terms of expenses. And so there will be a great timing to save money for travels again. Once you have decided and agreed about where to go and what to do, better stick to it so your plans won’t get ruined.
So the vacation plans were finalized. My daughter and I are going on a vacation to the Philippines. In this occasion, we’ll be traveling with a dear friend. Two months go before our flight and I’m like “oh it’s getting closer”. I’m getting excited for our trip.
Oh dear, two more days and we’re on vacation. Wow! How time flies so fast. It’s getting near. My family back home are very excited. My parents and siblings will meet us at the domestic airport in Leyte next week. Happy times!!!
It is another birthday celebration this month. It’s Mom’s birthday. Since we didn’t come over last weekend, K and I drove this afternoon to Tyler to visit our beloved folks. And also to be with the family since K and I will be traveling and will be gone for eight weeks for our vacation. We had a pretty nice plan during our visit and birthday celebration. First was watching Zootopia with Mom and a cousin JA. He’s already on Spring break. K was looking forward to this movie since it’s first trailer show when we saw the Inside Out movie last year. Cousin SR had gone to Dallas with her mom and dad, cousin P was in school, and Paw-Paw was busy installing the new microwave oven he bought from Lowe’s, so only the four of us went to watch the animated movie from Disney.
We watched the Zootopia movie at Studio Movie Grill. It’s one of those cinema chain where you can dine inside the theater. We ordered popcorn and a few drinks for us. To me, I rate the service 3 out of 5 stars. Because it took a while before our orders served. Well, I understand the busy work because there were so many viewers in the theater. But you have to really watch it when you order drinks especially for your kids. I ordered Strawberry Icee. I did repeat the order more than twice to the server. When it was served, it tasted different. I am pretty sure it was not Strawberry Icee. I don’t know if there was a mess up with the orders or what, but I am pretty sure that the drink they served wasn’t the one I ordered. So Mom complained about it. They took off that particular drink from the bill. I suggest that you should take the first sip of your kids’ drinks when you’re at the movies. It’s dark in the theater you know.
Anyway, my daughter liked the movie. It was funny and thrilling. My favorite funny part was when Officer Hopps and Nick went to the DMV where sloths are the employees. You have to see the movie to find out why. 🙂 Okay, second in the plan was to let K play with her cousins. That’s always in my agenda whenever we come visit. Lastly, was to spend the night so we have more time with Mom and Dad. K loves being with her grandparents.
Bad weather started coming this morning – thunderstorms, heavy rains, and strong winds. There’s a Flood Warning everywhere until Friday. It was raining hard when we got out of the cinema. It’s getting nasty so we will just go home tomorrow.
