We were at... MyThai

One fine weekend, we decided that we wanted to go to a non-crowded mall to have dinner and have coffee. The first thing that came to mind was either Podium or Shangrila Mall, but then we couldn't think of a specific restaurant to go to. So we decided to go to Eastwood City and agreed that we'll randomly select the restaurant once we get there.

We ended up having dinner at....

Why this place? We already miss eating Thai Food because the only one we really go to for authentic and affordable Thai food is Soms and the place is still under renovation. MyThai was an obvious choice.

Off to the food...

We decided to order the same selection we usually order from Soms and got to compare the dishes.

First stop was the Tom Yum soup.

We were both allergic to shrimp and it's quite disappointing that MyThai doesn't offer the option of choosing chicken over shrimp (unlike Soms). We still wanted to taste their Tom Yum soup version so we still went ahead and ordered it. Good thing, I always bring my allergy meds for just-in-case situations like this.

The verdict: I'm happy that at least their shrimps were big and the serving as well. But Soms wins in this category. MyThai's soup is a bit too salty for my taste.

Next stop... Red Curry (Chicken).

Is it just me or will you agree with me that the dish looks like KareKare. =\ It felt like I was tricking my tastebuds. My mind was thinking "get ready for some KareKare" so my tastebuds were expecting KareKare already. Haha!

The verdict: It was a little bit spicy, really saucy, and the vegetables were cooked just right. Soms still wins though, there's something missing when I tasted it, maybe they missed a small pinch of a certain spice, I can't pinpoint what is it though.

The Bagoong Rice...

I was happy to see that the serving can be shared by at least 2 persons. It was interesting as well that it had peanuts as part of the ingredients to be mixed with the rice. I wasn't a big fan of the chunks of onions, Arvic liked it though.

The verdict: It wins over Soms' Bagoong rice. Serving-wise and taste-wise as well (sans the onions and red chili pepper).

All in all, it was an interesting restaurant. I'm glad I gave it a try but I'm also pretty sure I won't be eagerly back sometime soon. :P Oh by the way, I loved the cabinets and white couch. :)

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…


Who knows how to play Sungka?

What's Sungka you may be thinking? Well, let's allow good old Wiki to define it for us...

Congkak (pronounced [tʃoŋkaʔ]) is a mancala game played in the island of Borneo, Singapore, and Peninsular Malaysia. Minor variants are known as Tchonka, Naranj, Dakon or Sungka and are played in Indonesia (mostly Java), Sri Lanka, the Maldives, southern Thailand, the Philippines and the Marianas. In Indonesia, it is called "Congklak" meaning cowrie shells, which are often used as pieces. On the island of Java, it is called "Dakon" and little red seeds are used as pieces. In the Philippines it is called "Sungka" and shells are used as pieces. Congkak is believed to originate from the word ‘congak’ which in old Malay Language means count.
When we were in Boracay last April, this game was played during our free time. I love playing it! Especially if my opponent's Arvic because I pretty much win all the time. Haha! Kidding aside, I…

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. :)
