Memphis Memories (Part II)

Another thing I love about Memphis beside its musical history is the food!

We were treated to breakfast by our family friends in this really cute, small yet cozy cafe near a park. The name of the place is "Blue Plate Cafe"

You can see the park in the glass reflection in the first pic.


When we got in, it was pretty obvious that the place was a popular one because there are a number of people waiting to be seated in the entrance area. Reminds me of Pancake house here in Manila.

 
The couches looked soft and comfy


The walls were filled with paintings and mirrors. Yes, I took advantage of the mirrors and took pictures of myself. Haha!


Off to the menu. The menu was really interesting. It had a newspaper design. So it gave you a feeling that you were just home reading the paper while waiting for your pancakes to be served. Really a nice touch. :)


Wide selection of omelette, pancakes and waffles. Lots of toppings to choose from also. So here's the food.


Everything was good!!! :D Even the sweetened Iced Tea and the refillable brewed coffee. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take a pic of the rest of the waffles. I loved the generous amount of fresh fruit toppings. :)

If I've be given the chance to be back in Memphis. I'll most definitely dine here again.


CARPE DIEM!

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…
