Long Lost Files: Syrena's First Yabu Experience

One sunny day, back when the babydaddy still lived in Manila and when I actually still spent time with my best friend, we all decided to have Yabu for lunch since we had to go to Megamall to return pullouts anyway. Of course, the booboo munchkin came with us.

To be honest, it was actually my top priority to bring her because I wanted her to finally bond with Jacob. See, my daughter is very, very, very picky with who she talks to/plays with/likes and before this Yabu date, she and Jacob never really "got along".

In fact, she used to hide her face and cry whenever she saw Jacob before. My mom had this theory that she's scared of good-looking men. But that's clearly not true coz Jacob's not good-looking. :p

Thank you, Khaeiycee, for the baby umbrella! :)

Fortunately, it seems that God decided that day would really be the day where they finally bond. In the car, she actually sat on Jacob's lap and pointed at random stuff for him to look at outside of the window. And at Megamall...

Awwwww! Look! She's holding his hand! Or, more like, holding his finger with her hand. She's got tiny hands.

And then off we went to Yabu!!! :D

It was both Henry and Syrena's first time there, so I was excited to hear their feedback. I always love introducing people to Yabu and watching their reactions while they eat and after they eat. It's almost better than actually eating the food at Yabu itself. Almost. But not quite.

I look horrible in this picture, but look at how cute my daughter is!!! Clearly happy to be in Yabu. :)

Her favorite phrase of the day was, "Mommy, I like this soup." next to, "Mommy, I like this rice." She had four cups of rice. It's a good thing the rice at Yabu is unlimited!

Jacob clearly enjoying his katsu. :p

They gave us free dessert, too - my favorite chocolate lava cake. :)

Ahhh. Writing about Yabu always makes me crave it. I've actually been craving it for a while now, but don't want to commute all the way to Megamall just to eat alone. Anyone wanna join me? Let's have a Yabu get-together, please! :D In the words of Kelly Medina: Yabu dabu doo!
