I wanna be a Chicago-an

I fell in love with Chicago.. as a tourist.
It has a mix of old and new structures and the weather was nice and cool (at least it was when we were there). I heard it gets really really cold during the winter. Oprah is from Chicago... and Michael Jordan too!!! :P Plus... I really like museums. And Chicago has a lot of them!!!

Most of our time in Chicago was spent walking along Downtown and eating out... the food is good! It still does not compare with what NYC can offer but there are definitely good places to dine. I will blog about our foodtrips too. :)

For now, here's some of our pics here and there. I can say that we'll definitely back. :)


The Bean

The Field Museum

Downtown Chicago


O for Oprah


Thank you Chicago! :)

CARPE DIEM!

Mascots

I used to be really afraid of mascots when I was younger. Mama told me they'd have a hard time trying to get me from under the tables (that's where I hide) whenever I see one. But look at me now...

Look Ma, no tears! :D


Pic was taken at M&M World, New York.

Weeeee! Happy weekend peeps.

Travel Buddies

We have been all over the US and bits of Canada from late October to mid November. It was a blast! I believe you learn more about your partner in times like this. Like how he interacts with strangers, how he enjoys new things and how he is amazed when it's his first time in certain places. My guy is loads of fun to be with. He's my ultimate travel buddy. :) I'm lucky to have someone who's not afraid to get lost with me in strange places and who's always game to get crazy and have fun.

Here's a picture of us having the waiting area all to ourselves because we're too early for our connecting flight. :))

Alba - Spanish Restaurant

We celebrated my parent's Anniversary last weekend and we opted to try something different this time. We always end up at Japanese, Chinese or Italian restaurants when we eat out. So I told them that maybe they want to try a Spanish restaurant this time, they said "yes!".



We went all the way to Tomas Morato to have dinner at Alba. I didn't know they have buffet during weekends pala. So here's the buffet spread...


Ma, Pa and my brother Ivan ended up enjoying the buffet selection while Arvic and Me opted to order our own Paella (Pesto Paella) and steak (with mashed potato and tomato sauce).


Alba had a good selection of wine, chorizos and dessert too.


Yumyumyum! 3 buffet + a few extra orders amounted to P3K++. Not bad, not bad at all. :)

CARPE DIEM!

A lifetime of love

Happy 31st Anniversary to my dearest Ma and Pa!

The kind of love you have for each other is awesome! :D I wish you more years of togetherness to share. :)

Photobooth Shots

I just noticed that  nowadays it looks like photobooths are a must in all kinds of occasion. May it be a wedding, a birthday party (kiddie or adult), debuts, and yes, even on baptism. I've been to 2 weddings, 1 kiddie party and 1 baptism in the past 3 weeks. And voila... here are our photobooth pics :P



Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuun!

Gong Cha

Lots of milk tea stores popping out here and there in Manila. But so far, I really liked Gong Cha more than the others. It maybe because I got to try it out when I was really getting tired of walking around MOA (sidenote: I really don't enjoy going to MOA that much), in other words sakto ang timing. :)









Let the milk tea war continue ;P

Carpe Diem!

Fifi is sick

I have 4 dogs at home. 1 askal, 1 rescued dog (looks like a wolf), and 2 maltese puppies. Our house in the province has more than 15 dogs, big and small. Yeah, we're dog-lovers. So you can just imagine my panic when I thought one of my doggies is about to go blind.

Fifi, one of the maltese puppies, had a swollen right eye. We all thought it was soreeyes at first, then wednesday came and it looked like she couldn't open her right eye already. Finally, we had her checked-up by the vet over the weekend. The verdict: Her eye was scratched pretty bad (probably during playtime with her sister Didi) and now it's swollen and infected. :( She got several injections for the swelling and the pain.










Brave little fifi. She's under observation and medication until next week. I hope she gets well already. :) She misses Didi. They had to be seperated to avoid rough playtime until she gets better :)

Old Pics

One weekend my brother went home to our family house in Nueva Ecija and because he had nothing better to do with his free time... he scanned our old pics and posted it all on Facebook!!!! Of course there were violent reactions (most came from our older sister!). Most of the awkward stage pics were hers anyway. =)) We laughed about it. And here's mine >>>





I love looking at old pics. Lots of memories and laughter just go with it.

Little Quiapo

It has been weeks since tha last time we had a foodtrip. So when Arvic went all the way to Commonwealth just to have dinner with me when I get off work, I wanted to try one place I was really curious about, Little Quiapo!







We heard that the pansit and kare-kare was their specialty. But it was rainy that day plus, we both wanted some hot soup. That's why we ended up ordering Sinigang.




It was delicious. Just the right 'asim' we both wanted to taste.

For appetizer, we had mushrooms.




We were surprised that this was really good. Arvic loves dishes with mushroom so he really enjoyed this one.

Here's the rest of the pics.







I still have more pics ib my camera. I'll add them later. The branch we visited was at East Ave. area and we will definitely back to try the kare-kare :)
