HK Day 2 : Trams, Colors and Heights

We were finally there... The Peak!

First stop... the Tram of course.. Up up up we went. :)



When we got to the actual "peak", the first thing I noticed when we entered the store was how colorful everything seems to be.

The designs/paintings on the walls...


Colorful bracelets...


Colorful shoes...


And really neat and colorful hats..


We found really neat Buddha figurines too. I was afraid to touch and break them.


And guess what.. we found Bruce Lee (again!)


After all the picture posing again, we all realized we were really hungry already. So we scanned available restos.. and guess where we ended up...


We were frowning because we were really hungry already. =P Haha! What I love about Bubba Gump HongKong is that their staff were really cool and the diversity of the staff's lineage is amazing. We were ushered in by Chinese waitresses, orders where taken by an Indian waiter, survey form was given by a Pinoy waiter and the manager is American (I think). Really neat! Plus.. food serving was big. We were really full halfway through the meal. We should have splitted our orders into 2.





After lunch.. off we went to the Sky Terrace.

To savor the view...


It was foggy at first.. as seen in the picture above. But then it was past noon already so I guess that's why the weather cleared up and just like that.. it was sunny again. :)


CARPE DIEM!

I was a little scared while riding the tram because of my heights phobia. =) Before moving to Sky Terrace, I did the shopping part first. Haha. I bought a red Chinese bag and notebook (medyo terno sila) and keychains. When we were in Manila na and looking at the pix I realized that I should have bought at least a pair of those cute shoes.

We went there night time. The city lights were so alive then. http://witsandnuts.com/2009/02/16/where-the-city-lights-and-wind-are-alive/

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.


Sisig …
