Dinner at Imays

To celebrate my husband’s birthday, we went to a quiet dinner at Imays. We ordered some Pinoy delicacies including kinilaw and crispy pata pictured below and Gulaman and sago for drinks:

I didn’t took a picture of the buko (young coconut)  salad complete with the whole green coconut stripped of a covering at the top revealing the young flesh added with crushed ice, sliced custard cake, piniping, gulaman, sago, jackfruit strips, milk and sugar. The sinigang was plain and simple.

To complete the night, I also took a picture of J. and Danielle and mommy and daughter.

  1. Yummy!!! Nakakagutom…

    By the way…i hope u don’t mind me asking, “What’s that on Danielle’s face? Will it be cured?” She is pretty.

  2. Hell bing,

    Thanks for dropping by again 🙂

    Danielle has strawberry hemangioma. This is the most common infant tumor affecting 1% of newborns with girls more likely to get it than boys. It usually grows on the face, head or neck and some in the body. At birth, her face is flawless except for the very faint very light pink mark on where the hemangioma is now. It is actually inconspicous unless you stare at her face. To mine and my family’s alarm, it grew very rapidly on her first six weeks. It elevated, took on a strawberry appearance and disfigured her nose. I really thought her right nostril would be covered. Fortunately, it stopped growing on her 8th week. From two until four months, it went into a “resting phase.” From then on, the hemangioma is healing slowly. There are parts where you can see her normal skin color. In some cases, it would take two years for the hemangioma to be healed while 70% is healed either by 5 years old or before puberty.

    Yes, there is a cure. You can either have laser surgery (only when it poses considerable risk- for example it covers the eye, or it is at the back of the head and has ulcerations)or take medications ( which has side effects that include behavioral disorder). Or, you can wait for it to completely heal on its own. Unfortunately, the latter would take a long time (at least two years).

    In danielle’s case, we are happy that her hemangioma has stopped growing and is starting to “involute” and we hope that on her 2nd birthday it would be gone. But if it doesn’t, I would go for laser surgery when she turns two.
