I Played at the Casino (For the Very First Time)

Little things in life are easy to overlook. But, when you are a Filipino who lives thousand miles away from the Philippines, spending time with other Filipinos pulls a gentle string in the heart. So, I was definitely thankful to spend our ‘Fridate’ at Little River Casino with fellow Filipinos-the beautiful as ever Katrina, the regal Ate Myrna O., the ‘luck-streak’ Susan, the caring Ate Vennie, and the sweet Ate Evie.



Blurred but I will replace it later. :D
The seafood dinner buffet was as ostentatious as ever- a wild array of textures and tastes that featured International gastronomies. The queue was an attestation that the food and service was something worthy of visit. 
 
Two lobsters for me since David doesn't eat one!
The night was full of fun- picture taking with friends, listening to a live band, and enjoying the company of Filipino friends and my husband. Most importantly, I got to try something I have never done before- play at the casino’s slot machines. I wasn’t as lucky as Sue who won $37. David and I won several times but at the end lost $20. I guess casino was not our cup of tea. 
 
Trying something I will never do again! :)

  8. The buffets at the casinos are always delicious, but I tend to stay away due to all of the cigarette smoke, I cant handle the second hand smoke.

    1. Yes. That's the reason I am not looking forward to go back because the smell of the cigarette was horrible.

  9. The lobster looks so yummy! I'm glad you could spend time with fellow Filipinos. It has to be hard living away from home. I only ever take $20 to play with at casinos. When it's gone, it's gone. On a good day, I come home with a little extra.
