Hello from NYC

Tito Ruben and Tita Chat came by to visit the Philippines for a short vacation. Since arriving 10 days ago, they have toured Nueva Ecija, Roxas, Dumaguete to visit relatives, and now Manila.

We had lunch together and food was sumptuous! Lumpiang ubod, Kare-Kare with bagoong, Pancit Bam-i, Chicken Teriyaki, fruits and ice cream. I gained another 10 lbs this weekend, mwahaha.

Pose for a family picture. Not included are Vito, Mau and Moxi coz they were taking a nap.

OMG!! I look so phat! este fat. The 10 lbs I gained are all in my cheeks! Bwahaha.

Katrina's Tagaytay

We met up with Mike and Botch coz we have planned to go to Tagaytay this evening for dinner, and some chillin' in cool weather. It was traffic in SLEX because of the Skyway extension, but we saw a lot of Decepticon trucks. That kept us amuzed, hehehe. In Laguna, we stopped by Paseo de Santa Rosa, where Keith was able to buy a gray cotton t-shirt (with a right-side pocket -his favorite shirt style) at Dockers with 50% discount. He also found a backpack in Nike which is strong enough to hold his laptop. It also has a thermal pocket for his tumbler. He got the bag at 50% off. You bet he was beaming with happiness.

We then headed to Katrina's, a resto-pub serving authentic Mediterranean cuisine, just a few meters away from Casino Filipino and Mcdonald's. We were met by the very accommodating owner and restaurateur, Trevor Roberts. That's him behind me.

He indulged us with stories and secrets of their restaurant, I am not sure if I can share them here though, hehe. Just pay him a visit, I'm sure he'll extend the same warmth and hospitality.

Our first order was a bottle of semi-sweet Infantes red wine. And since it was our first time, he suggested that we try some of their best-sellers - pizzas baked in an oven with volcanic stones, double cheese spaghetti, cottage pie, fish & chips, and apple pie. We ordered them all. For pizza, we ordered two - Chef's Special and Alfredo. Dinner was super! And cheap. For all that we only paid P2,500.

Currently, a part of the restaurant is under renovation. We will surely come back for the great food, affordable meals and cozy ambiance. BTW, they also have rooms for rent, very convenient if you've had too much to drink and cant drive. For inquiries, call 09053288425 or 09192756904.

Before heading home, we made a quick stop at Starbucks just to check out Taal and have more of that cool Tagaytay breeze. We were so full that we didnt even attempt to buy water, hahaha. Until next time... :)

On A Roadtrip

Thank God It's Friday!

After work, Keith and I met at Megamall to check out the Adidas Nike Sale at the Megatrade Hall. He was looking for a backpack for his laptop. I said, "What! Another laptop bag??" He then tried to explain that he needed a sporty bag for his laptop "para naman hindi halata sa mga mandurukot".. Roll eyes. Okay fine. We browsed throught the items, but didn't find anything interesting, so I pulled him out and told him I was hungry. While we were trying to decide where to eat, we saw Dulcinea. Grabeh, I missed Dulcinea! Last year, they shutdown there branches in Megamall and Galleria, and I thought I would never see them again. I am so happy they are back in business! Keith ordered tuna sandwich and our favorite fruit shake. I ordered churros con chocolate, my favorite comfort food in the whole wide world! Hehehe.
