Our 2nd :)

Up to the very day before our actual Anniversary we had no concrete plans of where to eat and celebrate. Our Lolo Dad's dinner didn't push through because I had to work late that Friday, then it was my highschool friend's (Cookie!) surprise birthday party the following night. So dinner plans were moved to Sunday and Lolo Dad's is closed during Sundays. So we had to make new plans.. quickly. :) Then I remembered that I wanted to try Bellini's way way before. And this might just be the perfect chance to do so.

Bellini's is considered an authentic Italian resto because it is run by Roberto Bellini. A former Italian paparazzi. In the walls of the place you'll definitely see a number of Mr. Roberto's shots.
Mr. Roberto married a Filipina and they opted to open a restaurant here years after. And the rest is history. :)

Bellini's is located inside the Marikina Shoe Expo in Cubao. A very unusual place in my opinion to open up a restaurant, especially an Italian one. But I guess that's one of the reasons why it draws people. It's unique and appealing in a certain way. :) The price is affordable as well. You get to taste authentic Italian dishes (pizza and pasta) for prices ranging from P150 - P300 and the wine selection is great as well. I chose this place because Arvic loves wine and he definitely is a fan of pasta. I loved the food, the service and the ambiance. You really should see the ceiling and the walls! I'll let the pictures do the talking. I just wish I give the place justice coz it really was a sight to see. :)











Now for the food pics. :)




Until next time Bellini's, we will definitely be back. :)



CARPE DIEM!

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…
