just wanted to document the tagaytay trip i had with my officemates and bosses… agreed to this because… they get kinder when they eat, haha. also, i kind of like long-ish drives. it took a while to find a place to eat, but they found a little cozy place with a nice view of taal.


and the search for bulalo (beef shank or bone marrow) shizznitz is over, haha. this was served to us while it was boiling, i thought it was going to explode! it was good though, almost comparable to what my parents would cook and oh, i had two cups of rice, teehee.


they also ordered chicken and squid, these vanished in a few minutes.


so eun, it was a really satisfying lunch and the view was great too…

yun lang muna.

went to up town center with my bestfriend, maki yesterday… i remember the last time we dropped by, it was an extremely rainy day and it was my first time to try laksa at boon tong kee. there were less than a dozen restaurants, pero ngayon syalan na! there were restaurants left and right that we’d like to try but after much deliberation i.e., fighting hordes of conyo kids, resisting the urge to down caramel apples and chocolates, and buying knickknacks… we ended up at cafe shibuya.


this was the last cake they had aside from the caramel ones… and so we got this because we just bought some caramel apples. matcha and cake is always nice, shared this with maki, not sure if she liked it though.


i don’t take pixxors of maki’s food anymore, but we both had their pink passion fizzy drink… wish it had some alcohol in it though, lols. i had tebasaki fried chicken and kimchi rice which was really good, although we asked the staff to lower down its spice level.


the little girl on the left is an engineer… haha and also an excellent food buddy. so eun, had a lot of fun at cafe shibuya, would like to come back for the honey lemongrass chops and their mango cheesecake (i haz small storage space, haha). food quests are always great with you, next time ulit bb.

yun lang.
