One of our Default Resto

What's your default resto? :)

What's a 'default resto' you may ask. Well, for me, it's the one you end up going to when you have no particular place in mind to eat. You just instantly find yourself going to that place without even noticing it. You go back to it either because you love the food, you like the ambiance, or the food price is reasonable. ;D

Well, for me, it's RECIPES.

The usual orders would be:

General's Chicken (P175.00) - Just the right amount of sweetness and crispiness.

and Gising Gising (P135.00) - A spicy veggie dish I can tolerate. Sometimes we make this an alternative to our rice. Weird? ;P

Occasionally, we add 1 more dish to our list. The last time we went there, it was their Crispy Pork Binagoongan (P165.00) - It's fried liempo ala binagoongan. The bagoong is not that salty.

I highly recommend their Crispy Tilapia too. They added a few Bangus dishes on their menu as well, give it a try and let me know if they are all delicious as well.

Kami default namin yung Cafe Breton. Have tried Recipes too several times. That's where we had Dyanie's bday. We liked their gising gising too and crispy tilapia.

I have a default resto for each location/mall. If in Shang, I like Cravings. In Makati, Apartment 1B. But in general, especially if with family, we go to Max's.

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…
