Spicy Lunch

I am just a semi-fan of spicy food. I like it on certain days that I have cravings but I don't really like my food extra spicy. In my opinion, it's nice that in a way it excites my tastebuds but I don't like the aftertaste and sometimes I feel that it numbs my mouth. Or maybe that's just all psychological. Haha!

Anyway, one Friday lunchtime, which is supposedly lunch-out day for most of us, we chose to fill our tummies with Indian Cuisine. So off to New Bombay we went which is conveniently just across the street from our office building.


Food:

Chicken Kheema (Keema) Hyderabadi - Minced Chicken Meat, Spinach, Green Curry.



Butter Tandoori Naan - Indian flat bread made from wheat and baked in a tandoor (clay oven)


The chicken dish was too spicy for me because we ordered it 'Medium' hot style. You'll be asked whether you like it Spicy, Medium or Mild. We should have said 'mild'. Oh well, until our next spicy lunch date. :)


CARPE DIEM!
I'm out.

I'm not a fan of Indian food too, but that's because I have yet to try. We're currently into Korean nowadays.

You went to New Bombay at The Columns? I liked their chicken tandoori and masala. The kulfe (Indian ice cream) is nice, too. I like spicy food but not necessarily Indian cuisine.

Hi,

Even I can't stand much spicy food but I'm fine with having it once or twice. I guess my tastebuds need this once in a while charge-up!!

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. :)

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…

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.…
