Fish out of Water

I have been wanting to try out this place for quite some time already so when a number of friends wanted to get-together and have dinner at Fish Out of Water, I have to admit that the first thing that I thought of was "FINALLY!" :)

The setup or ambiance was leaning more on modern style but still a bit homey. What the place offers is 'fusion'. A combination of Mediterranean cuisine with a local twist. Service was great as well, the crew is very attentive and all-smiles.

On to the food....

Smoked Fish Pizza - Not your usual pizza. The smoked fish was just the right taste and its combination with the veggie toppings was just perfect. It can be shared by 2-3 persons.

Labahita ala Bacalao Pasta - Also not your usual pasta dish. It's Linguini pasta with Labahita (fish) flakes.

Twiced Cooked Pork Belly with Shitake Leek Mashed Potatoes - Another yummy and "big" dish. It may look small in the pic but it can really be shared by up to 4 persons. Almost everybody got to taste this dish.

Crispy Garlic Catfish - that's not really the name of the dish.. I forgot it. :| I think that best describes it anyway. :P

Paella - There's a choice between beef or seafood. I really think the Seafood Paella's serving is bigger. I wasn't able to take a pic of that one though. I'd recommend that people should opt for that one instead of the beef.

And of course.. Dessert! :)

Barako Cheesecake - We really liked this one! Coffee-flavored Cheesecake, though after several bites your tastebuds will be searching for the cheesecake flavor because the coffee will be overpowering it. It's coffee and dessert in one. :)

Try it out! :D

I'm a purist when it comes to cheesecake so I don't like anything overpowering it. The pork belly looks very good!

Mother's Day 2017

This time last year, I was celebrating this special day for mothers with our little munchkin still inside my tummy.  I felt I had the right to co-celebrate with all amazing moms (and dad-moms, lolo/lola-moms, sibling-moms etc) of the world because technically I'm a mom already. Little did I know that being a mom is far from what I imagined it to be. Spoiler: IT'S WAY BETTER! :)
After giving birth, I was exhausted. Happy, relieved, and just plain exhausted. It was a grueling almost 24 hours of "labor". I was brought to the hospital around 6AM on the 27th, hoping that I will give birth a couple of hours later so I was pretty sure our little boy's birthday will be July 27. It took me a whole day of waiting, monitoring, cm-checking and "doc wala pa ba talaga" questioning before finally seeing our little one the morning after at 5:55AM.
This year, I am definitely, solidly, officially, proudly a mom on mother's day. Everyday I thank God for this blessing…

Hoyohoy Villas

I didn't know what to expect on our summer trip to Bantayan. I was in Cebu with my family just a couple of weeks before our Bantayan trip so I knew what to do when we arrived at Cebu, and that is to look for our shuttle that'll bring us to the pier so that we can go on a ferry boat to Bantayan Island. What I wasn't ready for was the long shuttle ride. It took us, 1.5-2 hours of roadtrip until we got to the pier and another 1.5-2 hours on boat.

Tired from traveling, we were just really ready to get to the hotel/resort to freshen up. . We were welcomed by colorful pedicabs when we arrived. Manong told us they were our ride to Hoyohoy Villas.

I'm happy the place didn't disappoint us

We were given complimentary refreshments right away...

Our villas...

Exploring the resort..

I really liked the place... the fun was just about to start. :)

Ba-Bye Ate

Today was quite a sad day for our family. For a very close-knit family, goodbyes are really extra difficult to say . Especially if the one leaving will be miles and seas away.

My Ate (with her husband) left this morning for the US. They'll be starting their new life there. She already has work so I don't need to worry about that anyway, and I'm sure that she'll definitely do well. My parents were really sad... maybe it's the thought of being "away" from her. Tipong you have to hop on a plane pa just to be able to get to her. The whole family has US visa naman, we can go there anytime (as long as we have the money I guess :p)

Yes, I cried a lot as well... and I guess it's because of all the bilins I got from her. The one that stuck the most "Ikaw na bahala dito ha.. Alagaan mo sila Mama and Papa. Si Ivan ha... Wag mo silang pabayaan." My nephew on the other hand was a different story... he was eager to go home already when we got to NAIA. Haha!…
