Manila Bay Dinner Cruise & Fireworks Display

Maymay’s birthday dinner cruise sponsored by the owners of Henryana Yacht was perfectly timed with the gorgeous Manila Bay sunset. The water was calm so I didn’t feel dizzy. I stayed on the boat’s deck so I could look far and inhale fresh air. I was also busy with our munching and kwentuhan that it deviated my attention from the boat’s occasional swaying except when the boat was maneuvering and stationary. That was really awful it turned my stomach upside down.

Henryana yacht’s interior is impressive. It has a living room, dining, bar, toilet and shower, two bedrooms.  It has three levels but I only stayed on the main deck.

Maymay prepared a bilao of different kinds of fresh spring rolls using fresh fruits, lobster and crab meats. I ate two pieces of the ones with crab meat.

We ate a lot of appetizers, cheese, fruits, salami, etc. Kala namin yun na yung food. Then they called again “kain na kayo”. We looked at each other, “ha? kumain na kami”. Yun pala they prepared rice, callos, paella, macopa salad, etc.

Even if I was stuffed from the spring rolls, chorizo, cheese, chips and fruits, I ate again kasi nakakahiya sa hosts. They prepared all this food tapos we’re not going to eat. Everything that they prepared for us was delicious. The callos and macopa were fantastic. I was too full to try all the other dishes but the other guests said they were very good too.

The topic of our conversations started with circumcision. Lior is Jewish and their tradition which dates back 4,000 years requires the infant to be circumcised after 3 days from birth. Some doctors here no longer want to circumcise infants because things could go wrong. There have been cases wherein they cut too much foreskin because the birdie is too small and hard to calculate how much skin should be removed. One result according to the doctora in our group is that those guys could have difficulty erecting.

The fireworks display competition started at 8 pm. Henry said this was the Philippine entry sponsored by a company named Platinum Fireworks.

I didn’t notice that it was already 10 pm kaya pala medyo antok na ako.
