Old Vine

It has been ages since I last visited Eastwood City. The recent makeup session we had gave me a chance to go there and boy was I surprised at how the place has changed. Too many buildings already... This isn't the way I remembered it to be.


Anyway, because of that we got the chance to have lunch at Old Vine. I was told that the place was owned by Tessie Tomas. So maybe that explains why there's a salad named after her. I was also told that it has similar dishes as Duo. So I excitedly checked out their menu.


I can say that we were happy with the soup, bread, and our main courses. Too bad I don't remember each dish name. (Kai, Eliza, Anne.. help?) I give two thumbs up to the The Garlic Steak and Filet Mignon Arvic and I ordered. Plus, I loved the ambiance! :)



I will be back to try out the Pasta dishes. Plus, there's a lot more to try out and visit at Eastwood city and the new mall. :)
CARPE DIEM!
I'm out.

A very pretty and relaxing place judging from the pics you posted. The food does look very good and appetizing. Too bad that it will probably take me a while before I get to visit it. :)

Thanks for sharing!

Hmmm, ma-try nga. Ang layo lang kasi ng Eastwood eh lalo na if you're coming from the South area.

Pero I'll make time for this. I also want to try Eastwood Mall's new movie house. :-)

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.…

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. :)

The Bontoc Museum

I've been going home to Bontoc, Mountain Province for years already and most of the time we go there during Holy Week. I've always wanted to visit the Bontoc Museum but I end up not visiting it again and again because they're closed during Holy Week. So imagine my amazement and (hidden) excitement when I FINALLY got the chance to visit it. Arvic was with me too so it made it extra fun of course. Another first for both of us. :) Yay!

Welcome to....




The Bontoc Musuem!









Entrance fee costs P50.00 only. The musuem has two parts.. the inside musuem and the outside one. Picture taking in the 'inside museum' is not allowed. There you'll be taken back in time with glimpses of the early days of the tribes from Sagada, Ifugao and Bontoc. :) Yes.. there are even pictures of the headhunting days. There are lots of photos of the tribes before and after the colonization. Really interesting. :)



So off we go to the outside musuem. Here, there are actual Nipa huts wherein you can see…
