HK Day 1 : Avenue of Stars and Symphony of Lights

The evening of Day 1 was spent watching the Symphony of Lights, walking at the Avenue of Stars to look for our favorite Chinese artists and eating cuttlefish. :)


The light show was really neat! Nice nice colors. Sobrang ang dilim pala tlaga dito sa Manila. Tsktsk....

Anyways, we found them!!!

I found Bruce Lee..


Arvic found Jackie Chan...

I found my own Jackie too.... Haha!



And of course, my favorite! Jet Li!!!! We almost didn't find him because a stall almost covered his name up already. Tsktsk. They really should move that stall.


Yes, I will be overloading you with moooooore pics. :P


Walked some more and was ready to go home already.. then.. we found Bruce Lee again.


We were really hungry already because of too much walking. Then there was a stall selling cuttlefish and it really smelled delicious so we bought ourselves some..


It was good when it was still hot.. but then turned out rubbery when it started to get cold already. Good thing I just shared 1 order with Arvic. I made him eat up my share. Hehe.

That ends day 1. :) The following days' adventures will be posted sooooon. Promise!

CARPE DIEM!

Is the cuttlefish the same with this one that I ate in Disneyland? http://www.flickr.com/photos/witsandnuts/3298449173/

I got addicted to Korean Squid. I didn't notice the cuttlefish vendor that night. Maybe I was too busy taking photos after the Symphony of Lights. Lol.

@witsandnuts - ooooh.. looks the same! :) The one we bought was hot from the pan (or that metal thing). Hehe. It was really delicious at first, plus the smell was enticing. :D

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!


The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.


It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

KKK: Food Revolution

It's been some kind of 'tradition' or nakasanayan na to hear mass with the family on Sundays then eat out. It may be dinner or lunch. Depends if Mama and Papa will go home to the province on Sunday evening or not. But lately, since everyone seems to be busy with something, may be work(Me), school(the brother) or reunions(the parents), we end up hearing (anticipated) mass on Saturdays then unplanned lunch or dinners on Sundays.

So one fine Sunday, we found ourselves having lunch in a new place (new to us) at the side of SM Cubao. It was 'KKK'.


Browsing through their menu we found lots of food selections. Most of course are Filipino dishes. The interior and most of the decorations had a native touch to it.




I especially liked this piece made of recycled wine bottles


And this picture or wallpaper that showed some of our national heroes. I think that's Jose Rizal on the left  side.


Off to the food.

Lumpiang Shanghai - This was really good. Especially the sauce.
