Date with High School Buddies in QC

Ten years ago our family moved from Novaliches to Diliman in Quezon City and only recently have I discover the different food places near our house.

Yesterday, I met up with my school best friends Deci and Lik-Lik just to catch up on how each other is doing. We met-up in Trinoma and just walk around the mall sharing stories. We had lunch in Banana Leaf - a Thai/Asian restaurant.

Pad Thai Banana Leaf Style, and  Wok Fried Squid with Basil Leaves and Chili

After spending near to 3 hours there, we walk around Trinoma some more and decided to try the food places in Maginhawa for dinner and dessert. Before having dinner at Crazy Katsu, we played Taboo in our house. At Crazy Katsu, I would recommend the classic Katsudon and amazing Katsu Curry. Please avoid the Gyoza. For that day, it tasted like how the freezer smells when you haven't clean it in a while. It was really sad.

Gyoza, and  Chicken Katsu Salad

After our dinner, we're planning to have dessert at Iscreamist but it was close when we arrive. We, then, saw Fancy Crepe. I can't remember the names of the crepe that we had but it was okay.


There are so many more restaurants to try so hopefully, I get to do more rounds of food trip in Maginhawa Street.

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.

Baguio: Food, Friends, and Events

I've been to Baguio a couple of times and have shared my experiences in this blog (Baguio-Bontoc Adventure and Places to Visit in Baguio).

This particular visit is special because I am going there to do what I love, share with educators what I know and how they could maximize Google Apps.

Day 1 Jomar and I left Quezon City at exactly 11:00PM riding the Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc. A review about the experience in a separate blog post. We arrived a little after 3:00AM which makes the travel time just 4 hours between Manila and Baguio! We took a cab going to my favorite hotel in Baguio, Azalea Residences. The person at the front desk said that they have to charge us for two nights already since there's an early check-in charge. I was too tired and sleepy to argue, even if I am worried since I have a limited budget for this trip. I paid using my card but it seems that there card reader isn't working properly but I informed the front desk personnel that…
