There are tons of ways to celebrate your birthday. The classic way to celebrate birthdays in the Philippines is when celebrants choose to whip up their specialties and fill the whole dining table with the classic fried chicken, lechon, spaghetti, the pansit for long life (ahhh, classic!), and perhaps a bowl of tapioca or fruit salad and so much more.
Buuut, there are also others, like my family, opt to enjoy a stress-free birthday and dine in their favorite restaurants. Ever since I was a kid, Bigby's is one of my favorite food place to feast during birthdays.
As you may all know, or may not know, I've been in Cebu for quite a while already, which means I got to celebrate my birthday this year away from home. And, just a week ago, my friends prepared a late birthday surprise for me and there's no other place that crossed my mind to go binge eating with them than at Bigby's in Ayala Center Cebu.
I have to admit, I've been feeling a bit homesick lately but good thing there's also a Bigby's branch here in Cebu. True to their tag line, "Come home to Bigby's", it's always a delightful feeling of being close to home whenever I dine in there either with family or with friends.
With their wide-range menu extending from burgers, salads, pastas, to their famous baby back ribs, celebrating in Bigby's is not only luxurious, but is just as festive and memorable.
Not only is their food great, but the service is also good. Their staff will be happy to sing you a happy birthday song and will give you a small surprise! *winks*
May it be here in Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, or in General Santos City, Bigby's is conveniently found inside malls, so that after you enjoy a scrumptious meal in Bigby's, you may proceed to do other errands, stop by at the supermarket, or continue celebrating your special day through pampering yourself.

One thing I don’t like about myself is I have the tendency to get things disorganized, that’s why resorting to a planner is my best option to help me keep track of my events, meetings, and other activities.
24 October 2015, CBTL Ayala Center Cebu– The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf launched its #TheGivingJournal2016 Planner with a fun watercolor workshop, and I was one of the lucky few to witness the flavorful event!
Every year, in the months leading to the holiday season, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf releases its sought-after Giving Journal helping the Real LIFE Foundation, the Giving Journal’s beneficiary, by supporting the educational needs of the less fortunate. And every year, the company makes it a goal to create something better than the last, constantly evolving the journal to share the company’s passion for GIVING, SHARING, and COMMUNITY.
This coming 2016, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf hopes to “GIVE FLAVORFULLY” in ways that can warm the soul as much as the body. The Giving Journal is designed to inspire each individual to pursue their passions and find meaning and fulfillment in everyday moments, while at the same time providing them with the opportunities to give back by helping others.Evidently, The Giving Journal is certainly not your ordinary planner; it is a gift where the joy of giving and receiving it lasts well past the holiday season.
