One of my Favorite Games

In the middle of all the Christmas gift buying craze... We were able to squeeze in a trip to the toy store for my nephew's gifts. And because he is a very picky boy, we opted to bring him along and made him choose the toys he wanted.

He went around the toystore and we did the same too. I was amazed at how many kinds of toys kids can choose from today. AMAZING! I wanted to be a kid again.. :) It was extra special for me to see that my nephew wanted this toy...



This is one of my ultimate favorite games!!! And it was nice to see that it now has a Philippine Edition. Look! ->


How cool is that?! And the most coveted property (aka. most expensive lot/house) is....


Ayala Ave! LOL.

I'm glad that in this time of technology-boosted toys... Good old boardgames still live on. Fun fun fun times! :)

CARPE DIEM!
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.…

KKK: Food Revolution

It's been some kind of 'tradition' or nakasanayan na to hear mass with the family on Sundays then eat out. It may be dinner or lunch. Depends if Mama and Papa will go home to the province on Sunday evening or not. But lately, since everyone seems to be busy with something, may be work(Me), school(the brother) or reunions(the parents), we end up hearing (anticipated) mass on Saturdays then unplanned lunch or dinners on Sundays.

So one fine Sunday, we found ourselves having lunch in a new place (new to us) at the side of SM Cubao. It was 'KKK'.


Browsing through their menu we found lots of food selections. Most of course are Filipino dishes. The interior and most of the decorations had a native touch to it.




I especially liked this piece made of recycled wine bottles


And this picture or wallpaper that showed some of our national heroes. I think that's Jose Rizal on the left  side.


Off to the food.

Lumpiang Shanghai - This was really good. Especially the sauce.
