Macrine's Birthday at the Don Emilio's Restaurant in Boac


Macrine and I in front of the Balanacan Cove Convention Center, March, 2011

Yesterday was Macrine's 75th birthday. She did not want a big party, so I just treated her to lunch at Barbarosa in Gasan. She did received a gift from Dr. Cely Roque and Mrs. Auring Pitero. Auring is the founder and co-owner of Kusina Sa Plaza Restaurant. Auring and Macrine were classmates during their elementary school days.

In the evening a birthday dinner was hosted by Mrs. Pitero in her new fine dining restaurant, Don Emilio's Place. It was also attended by Mrs. Lita Hidalgo and her two sons. The Hidalgo's were in Boac to observe 9th day prayers and mass for the late Ton Hidalgo. Again, our sincere and deepest sympathy for the Hidalgo's loss.

The Don Emilio Restaurant is located on the second floor of the Kusina sa Plaza Building. This building is one of the many antique houses in downtown Boac and was the ancestral home of Don Emilio Lardizabal and family. The house has been renovated and refurnished with antique light fixtures and furnishings. This restaurant reminded me of a restaurant in an antique house located in Old Sacramento, California.

Again, thank you Auring for the delicious dinner. It consisted of corn soup, beef steak, tiger prawns and sweet and sour lapu-lapu. It was served with steamed rice and potato salad with fresh mangoes for dessert.

Don Emilio's fine dining restaurant will served authentic Marinduque dishes such as kare-kare, ulang-ulang, fresh fish and other Filipino traditional dishes. Watch out for the Grand opening next month.

Finally, Macrine also received birthday greetings from Dinah, Ditas and Carenna. We received a video message with Carenna singing Happy Birthday via FaceBook. Dinah and Ditas are our two daughters residing in US. Carenna is our youngest grand daughter- the only child of Ditas.
