Nuevaaaaa! Fiestaaaaa!

Okay... I'm not yet over the "mourning", but I don't really have a choice but to get it all over and done with. Oh well... moving on.. ;P

The weekend was grrrrreat! Happy people, events here and there. It was our little town's fiesta last week. It all started with a parade. Which I didn't get to see because I was still very sleepy. So, no pictures of that. Sorry! :(


People were up as early as 6AM to ready up the balloons and cars to be used. One of our cars was part of the event. I got to take a pic of it when it was about to leave our house..




Was awake and all geared up at around 9AM and went right away to the town proper to see the rides. And just as expected... there were a number of really colorful rides. But it was too early so the rides were still empty.



One event we just can't miss was my nephew's Taekwando tournament which we actually watched almost half the day. 1st elimination part was in the morning, the 2nd elimination was after lunch.



He actually won a silver medal.. "CONGRATS ANDY!!!" :) Little kids acting like action stars, high and low kicks here and there, really amusing. So0o0o0 cute! What I found nice in this tournament is that eventhough they were all very serious about the tournament, no one actually threw a tantrum after losing. They congratulated each other and were excited for the winners. I guess it comes with the discipline they learn thru their Taekwando trainings. Really good sportsmanship. Two thumbs up! :) Children should have more activities like this.

There were a number dance performances from the kids...







and also from parents, but I wasn't able to take a pic of that. They were all very happy that they got the chance to perform. :)

Had mass in the afternoon and went around the "peryas and wagwagans" after mass. Wasn't able to take a pic of it because I was warned that my camera might be snatched from me. In the middle of all the festivities people still get the chance to steal. Not nice at all! Tsktsktsk..

Just like any other fiesta, it was a festive one. People from other towns came over to join in the celebration too. All in all, it felt great to be "home" and be among genuinely happy people. Can't wait to be back home again.. :)

CARPE DIEM!
I'm out.

PERYA!!!!

I miss going to fiestas. Alam mo naman dito sa Kamaynilaan, hindi na uso ang mga fiesta na tulad ng ganyan. Onga, bakit walang photos ng food? Hindi kumpleto ang fiesta kapag walang handa. :-)

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.
