Lucy’s 1st Birthday Party

Lucy and Polly
Yesterday I attended the 1st birthday party of my cousin Polly’s adorable daughter, Lucy.

Polly and her hubby Al along with both their parents came home from different parts of the US to celebrate this important occasion in Manila.

The party was held in Greenmeadow’s clubhouse. It was my first time to go there and I was very impressed with the building. It was quite nice and modern.

As expected in any kid’s birthday party in Manila there has to be some fun food. They rented a ‘dirty’ ice cream cart and a fish ball stand.

My favorites were the super creamy and chunky chicken pastel and the fried lumpia filled with beansprouts and carrots. The beef salpicao was also yummy, tender and garlicky. The bangus was ok too. Sad to say the lengua or ox tongue was tasteless and very disappointing. The stuffed alimasag looked good but it was bland and had a fishy taste. So most of us in the table didn’t eat it.

Everyone enjoyed the ‘dirty’ ice cream. I got the ube and cheese flavors only. There was chocolate too.

I caught the beginning of the kid’s show. That was one talented parrot! Here the parrot lifted the bucket.

In this picture the parrot took the ball and dropped it in the basket. I didn’t know what happened next because I ate and ran. Happy Birthday Lucy!!!
