Wanderlusting Awaaaaaay

Kumareng Grace... This post is for YOU! :)

Wanderlust :
very strong or irresistible impulse to travel
I looooooooooove going on trips and most of the time (well especially when I'm stuck in the office), I often wonder if I'm meant to be elsewhere but here. This also explains why my blog is named that way "I am littlemisswanderlust". I strongly believe that there's a lot to see and discover and the world is and will forever be my playground. That's why I'm determined as hell to travel travel travel. :) Which brings me to...

My 3 Favorite Places:

Despite all my travel dreams... when I'm asked of my favorite vacations spots, it amuses me that I still end up choosing these 3.

First stop: Our house in Nueva Ecija!


Sure, it's all palayans (ricefields) and carabaos... BUT this place is home for me. Every time I feel stressed, lonely, down and even happy, I go home here. The phrase "there's no place like home" really suits me big time. And besides, it's always fiesta time everytime we go home. Ask my friends... :P Mama really cooks up or readies a feast!

Second stop: Baguio!



I have been going to Baguio around 5 times a year since I was a kid and I have to say that there's still a lot to see in Baguio. It's just sad that the city gets more and more polluted each year. People may find it weird when I say that my family prefer pools over beaches, cold weather over sunny ones, that's why Baguio is the default summer getaway place to go to for us. Maybe it's extra special too for me because most of our quick family tours were spent here. Lots and lots of memories were made in Baguio. ♥

Third Stop: HongKong (& Macau)!


My shopping haven! Should I elaborate more?!?!? Oh yes, for Macau, the foooooood! The Egg Tart. Enough said. =P

As for the other places I dream of going to. Hmmmmmm...

Paris! (no need to explain why.. it's every girl's dream destination)
Japan! (overwhelm me with technology please)
Bantayan Island! (a taste of paradise)
Oman! (I grew up here, it would be neat to be able to go back for a vacation)
Korea! (They say it's a pretty pretty place)
China! (I shall conquer the Great wall!)
Chicago! (I want to visit my sister)

This list will never end so I guess it's best to stop listing NOW. ;D

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.
