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.

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…

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. :)

Ba-Bye Ate

Today was quite a sad day for our family. For a very close-knit family, goodbyes are really extra difficult to say . Especially if the one leaving will be miles and seas away.

My Ate (with her husband) left this morning for the US. They'll be starting their new life there. She already has work so I don't need to worry about that anyway, and I'm sure that she'll definitely do well. My parents were really sad... maybe it's the thought of being "away" from her. Tipong you have to hop on a plane pa just to be able to get to her. The whole family has US visa naman, we can go there anytime (as long as we have the money I guess :p)

Yes, I cried a lot as well... and I guess it's because of all the bilins I got from her. The one that stuck the most "Ikaw na bahala dito ha.. Alagaan mo sila Mama and Papa. Si Ivan ha... Wag mo silang pabayaan." My nephew on the other hand was a different story... he was eager to go home already when we got to NAIA. Haha!…
