Recognition Day Celebration at Tuan Tuan, Greenhills

Our son’s hard work in Grade 4 paid off. During their Recognition Day in school last June 24, he received 9 medals: a bronze medal for Top 3 General Excellence, 5 academic subject medals and 3 special subject medals. His grandparents on my side of the family were there to see him receive his medals on stage, and both my younger sister and younger brother celebrated this special occasion with us at Tuan Tuan in Greenhills. While waiting for my brother to arrive, we ordered two Signature Crispy Snow Buns (Barbecued Pork and Minced Duck, Php128.00 for 3 pieces), but alas, I forgot to take a picture of these. Lol!

We ordered the following a la carte dishes: US Premium Beef Rib Curry, Deep-fried Baby Squid with Aioli Sauce, Cantonese Seafood Pan-fried Noodles and Honey Garlic Spareribs.

US Premium Beef Rib Curry, Php498.00

This US Premium Beef Rib Curry was not spicy because, if I remember right, we requested adjustment in its spiciness so that everyone could try it. The beef was tender, but the curry sauce was a bit bland.

Deep-fried Baby Squid with Aioli Sauce, Php280.00

I love munching on this Deep-fried Baby Squid with Aioli Sauce. It was crispy on the outside but soft and delightful on the inside.

Cantonese Seafood Pan-fried Noodles, Php298.00

The generous serving of fresh shrimps and squid combined with the rightly seasoned fried noodles made this Cantonese Seafood Pan-fried Noodles a favorite item on our table.

Honey Garlic Spareribs, Php298.00

This sweet and garlicky Honey Garlic Spareribs was okay but nothing extraordinary. I also know that we ordered a chicken dish when my brother arrived, but I forgot what it was, and I also didn’t take a picture of it.

Of course, we had to take a lot of photos to remember this special occasion.

Three’s a family. Cheers!

And that’s his uncle, my younger brother, who arrived late because he got caught up in traffic.

I guess more than the food and the celebration, it’s the family togetherness that really matters here. My parents and younger sister came all the way from Dasmariñas, Cavite to give my son moral support. My younger brother braved the heavy traffic in Edsa to personally congratulate his nephew. I know my son was really happy to see all of these familiar faces who cheered for him. Congratulations, son, and keep up the good work!
