The Gift of Life: 23rd Birthday of Budz :)

They say that people enter into your life for a specific purpose. I know I found him because I needed to see how beautiful life can be and my days are now happier than before. Knowing that I have him to love gives my life a greater meaning.  Even a 1000 words won’t be able to express what I feel for him. I wanted it to be like this, every where he look he won’t find someone that loves him as much as I do, so for his birthday I gave him the gift of a day with me. 🙂 


I always wanted to celebrate this kind of occasion even in a simple way because it only happens once in a year. I am a kind of person who wants to remember what we did in that year or on how we did it, something that we can reminisce when we are about to look back.  In the past 2 years that we celebrate Budz’ birthday we always spent it with our friends.  This year was totally different. 🙂

Our Ilocos trip was supposed to be the celebration of Budz’ birthday already but since I wanted to make his day more memorable, we decided to avail the promo of vikings. 🙂 The celebrant will eat for free but he/she should be accompanied by one adult. Yey! It was our first time to eat in Vikings and our first time TOGETHER in a buffet. Lemme’ see if budz can beat me here. 😀 (I’m a Buffet Master by the way.)


We went there as walked in customers and believe me or not it’s only 4:30 in the afternoon when we arrived, too early for a 6:00 PM start of the dinner buffet but we were already number 14 in the waiting list. We were actually thinking of not pursuing this plan because we do not want to wait for so long but thanks to the ladies in the waiting area who told us that it will not take too long when we wait. 🙂

Instead of waiting in front of the restaurant we walked in the seaside, talked random things and laughed. 🙂 When we were still studying this is how we date each other.


We were not so patient enough to wait so we ate Halo-Halo in Razon’s. It is still the best Halo-Halo in town! 🙂


After 2 hours of waiting, AJA! Our number was already called.  It was difficult to get food together as no one will watch out for our belongings. Saddest part — you cannot able to chitchat while getting food and ask suggestions. But it’s fine, still we were happy and it’s Budz Birthday! 🙂

Budz looks so tired here. 🙂 He’s not getting younger anymore.


Don’t be disappointed with the photos I got, I promise the food were really good it just so happened that I am not into food porn. I wanted to eat immediately but Budz wanted to have pictures first. Hahaha. 🙂

Two plates at the middle were mine. 🙂



Mine. 🙂


His Plate.


We don’t have any talent in designing food that will show you how good it is for real. It was really delicious and if you are into buffet I highly recommend Vikings. I ate a lot of siomai and tempura, these are my all time favorite. Budz did not eat a lot, he’s not a good companion in a buffet. Hahaha. He was full in a short period of time and as his partner I also felt the same way.  (But I ate a lot compare to him.)


When we were almost done with our food, I started to look out for the staffs who will sing for my Budz. I am such an annoying girl as I always talked to the lady in charge that we wanted to be next as we were already leaving. (Still demanding?!) Haha.

Budz and his mini birthday cake. 🙂


We were not lucky enough to be granted with our request, actually we were the last one that those staff sang a Happy Birthday Song.


All in all. 🙂 Vikings is good for those buffet lover who wants to have a lot of choices. For me, I prefer to eat in a smaller buffet because I find it difficult to choose what to eat as there are really a lot. I don’t know what to pick, that was my struggle. If I will be comparing Vikings to Buffet 101- I will choose Buffet 101. It’s my own choice. We were just trying something new that we haven’t tried before. 🙂

Even a DOUBLE RAINBOW couldn’t make my heart flutter like you do. Happy Birthday Budz. 🙂



 And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
