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. :)

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.…

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…
