Dinner Date On Our Wedding Anniversary

My husband and I have been married for one dozen years. Surely, time flies so fast when you're having fun. Seems like it was only yesterday when we exchanged our I do's in our church on September 11th, 2002. Now after 12 years, we're still together, loving each other and most of all serving the Lord. There were bumps along the way and we had our ups and downs but God had seen us through. Last year, hubby was admitted in the hospital on the day of our anniversary due to dengue fever. That was the worst anniversary that we had so far. I thank God hubby got well sooner than expected due to lots of prayers. I wanted to go on vacation with him this time since we haven't done that for the past few years but we've been busy giving snacks and supervising the workers who are plastering the walls in our church for the past two weeks.Our service for the Lord comes first before our own pleasure.

So hubby and I just opted to celebrate our wedding anniversary as simple as can be. He took me out to a dinner date in a restaurant. He asked my not-so-li'l brother to drive for us. He try to avoid driving in the city as much as possible due to his blurry vision. I got to pick what restaurant we gonna dine in and I chose Dampa Restaurant. It was our first time to go to this restaurant since it was totally renovated and renamed. It  used to be called Luisito's Seafood Restaurant and just across the road is Matutina's Seafood Restaurant which was always jam packed. When we walked inside Dampa, it was crowded. It was past 12 PM  but.  people were  busy eating to there hearts' content. I noticed they had a buffet section but we opted to order the foods that we want which I regretted later because it took a while to wait whereas if we chose the buffet, we could have gone there and dig in right away. Oh well, we'll do it next time. By the way, buffet costs Php295 per pax and eat all you can. I'm pretty sure, hubby and li'l brother would have pig out, lol!

Hubby ordered  one of their best sellers which was calamares and also his iced tea drink. Fried squid is really his favorite and we found out later that it was really good. It come close to the fried squid in Hap Chan only the latter is still better.

I ordered the sweet and sour Lapu-lapu fish, and dinengdeng while not-so-li'l brother ordered the kilawen fish, one of their best sellers too. I thought the kilawen was made of fresh fish but the waitress said it was steamed before they seasoned it. Yangchow fried rice was preferred rather than plain rice.

All of these foods were good for 2 to 3 pax. I was the only one who ordered dessert and I chose buko pandan salad. All of us three managed to finish off all the foods but the dessert because I was already full. I forgot to take photos of the dinengdeng and the buko pandan salad because we were in hurry to eat but I tell you they were yummy. The verdict, very sumptuous dinner and I gave Dampa 4 out of 5 stars. Hubby and I love their foods. Next time we'll go back, we'll have the buffet.

Before we headed home, we had some pics by the entrance door. I love the way the way they decorate it. Here it goes...
