Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 2)

Let the feast begin...

It was cute that their appetizers were called 'Appeteasers'. For each dish in the menu, a description was written below it, which orients you on what to expect from the dish.


Calamares Fritos - P145.00
(Deep fried squid rings in tartar sauce)

Tokwa't Bagnet - P205.00
(Crispy fried pork belly with Tofu, Soy sauce)

Homemade Bagnet - P170.00
(Crispy fried pork belly with Papaya chutney)

I was not able to taste the Calamares. The Bagnet dishes were delicious and crispy. The Homemade Bagnet (which was our order) had tomato with bagoong and atchara which both really went well with the crispy pork.

The soups:

They ordered different soups.
Wild Mushroom Soup - P110.00
Bouillabaisse - P95.00
Potato Cheese Chowder - P 90.00

The breadbowls were cute. And the messages/quotes mounted on it were adorable as well. I got to taste the Wild Mushroom soup, it was really thick and tasty. According to my friends, the other soups were tasty and filling as well.

The salad:
3-dip Forest House Special Salad - P 295.00
(Mix of fresh lettuce, crispy cucumber, carrots, turnips with nuts, raisins and cherry tomatoes. Dips: Strawberry dressing, blue cheese, honey vinaigrette)

This salad I highly recommend you try. The vegetables were fresh (Baguio veggies FTW!). And the 3 types of dips were all delicious. You get to make your own wrap, starting with a big leaf of greens then you decide the ingredients you want to pack in.

The main course/s:

Forest House Wine Sauced Chicken - P245.00
(Grilled chicken breast with rich white sauce, mushroom and white wine)

Forest House Back Ribs - P310.00
(Charboiled ribs simmered with their very own barbecue sauce)

We pretty much ordered the same main courses as recommended by the attendant. I think majority of the main courses can be shared by 2 persons. The ribs should be eaten right away though, because it gets cold pretty fast mainly because we were at the veranda and it was extra breezy that night. :)

We ordered a bottle of wine as well, it just suited the ambiance and the food.

The dessert entry shall follow... ;D

I'm out.

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…
