There's a popular saying that goes something like "The family that eats out a lot together, grows fat and chubby forever," or something similarly like that. I just added a twist to make it a little bit personalized and appropriate for our family.
Needless to say, we are a happy bunch who loves every opportunity of going out to eat. Thank goodness there's always an endless array of blessings which keeps us going out to share festive meals together.
We are the family that's always "busog" every time we decide to go out on a weekend or during special occasions where we celebrate a birthday, anniversary, an accomplishment or a long holiday when there's a longer vacation from school.
Thus you would guess that summer would be a time when we would mostly be out enjoying a family vacation, a hotel staycation, a restaurant visit - that's done usually after mass from our church morning visits - or simply going shopping at the nearest malls.
Among our weekend escapade is our visit to Skippy's Bar and Grill, an Australian restaurant that's not only open at night time for their beer-loving customers, it also welcomes families who want great Aussie-inspired dishes conceptualized by it's Australian owner together with his lovely Filipina wife.
We were invited to celebrate a special occasion there so we never hesitated to accept the offer. Every opportunity to dine with the whole family has always been a favorite activity.
It was not our first time at Skippy's for we have been there once before, but in my case, I've been there for several times already as they also invite me when they have their own special events like the celebration of Australia Day. Thus, we decided to order the dishes that we haven't tried yet as per our previous visit.
Sadly, we were not complete as a family that day because my youngest chose to stay at home to finish his school work. Thus only four of us were able to go out and enjoy the hearty lunch at Skippy's Bar and Grill. My daughter Hannah Krystelle being my eldest, and Hezron Kyle as second child. The bunso, Hansel Kyro, would be missing a lot from our Skippy's Bar and Grill dining experience.
As the drinks we ordered came and still waiting for the dishes to be served, the family decided to take some selfies or groupfies first around the restaurant. Both inside and out, we have photos at every corner of the Aussie resto.
The restaurant from down under has a bar for the guests who love drinking beer especially during game night when the boys gather round the bar catting with each other, yelling at the game as if the players can hear them, while enjoying different kinds of drinks.
If it were not for the billiard table, the resto would have plenty more room for tables. But the owners find it more friendly to have a game area which customers would appreciate more. They have in fact entertainment night when bands perform for the listening pleasure of their customers.
Collectors item shirts framed and displayed on the walls for posterity. Everyone coming in to the restaurant would definitely notice them.
The billiard table is always a busy part of the restaurant. Many friendships were made because of this entertaining way to spend time.
They have sports channels on projected display so you can watch at any time of the day. This looks better at night time when it's darker around the place but the show becomes clearer to watch.
Their menu cards were very new as they were obviously only recently made based on how clean they still were.
