Lunch at Corky's

One of the places we went to during our US family trip last year was Memphis. :D And as I mentioned in my previous posts related to the place HERE and HERE, I did enjoy the place soooo much because of the culture, the music and of course, the food!

One of the places Tito Ed brought us to have lunch at was at the famous ribs place... Corky's!


Upon entering you're greeted by a wall full of signatures and pictures of celebrities (athletes, politicians, actors etc).
We wanted to post our pics and sign it... but no one asked us to!!! What were they thinking?!? They were missing a chance of a lifetime. Haha!

The place was cozy, warm and inviting with all those brick walls and lights. :D


Off to the famous ribs. You'll be given the option to try it dry or with sauce. Our waiter insisted that the dry version was a crowd favorite but of course we just needed to try both of them :D

Ribs smothered with sauce


The Dry ribs

They also had their special sauce selection (you can see it on the 2nd to the last pic beside the smothered with sauce ribs). Just like Racks, it had a spicy version and an original one. :)

Given the chance that we'll visit Memphis again we will definitely be back at Corky's :D

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…
