Food Trip near UP Los Baños: Faustina's and Baan Thai

It is a given that near most university there would be a lot of great food places! I am so happy that (thanks to +Foursquare) we stumbled upon Faustina's near University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB). This was last Saturday (February 22) during +GDG Philippines Campus Roadshow in UPLB.


Faustina's is a relatively small restaurant near UPLB. It serves pizza, pasta, and rice meals. I had pesto pasta (which is my fave pasta - if you've been reading my blog you would see that I keep on ordering this pasta), +Wayne and +Jomar had the pasta with shrimps, and +Reymart had the vegetarian pasta. For sharing, we had shrimp cheese pizza. My pesto pasta was delicious. We were all quiet when the food arrived enjoying ourselves with the particular pasta we ordered.

Pasta that we enjoyed so much!

For desserts, +Jomar and I shared a red velvet cupcake, I can't remember what +Reymart ordered but it was also good. While +Wayne had to take out his Mango Pie. I asked if it tasted like Peach Mango Pie in which he said, yes but less crispy.

After the event, we had early dinner at Baan Thai. It is a little further from the campus and it was really just a house serving Thai food. Wayne and I did not like the food. Sad. I find the Pad Thai sour (is it supposed to be sour?), the Thai chicken dumpling was too salty for me as well. *Sigh thankfully our Faustina's lunch was good that I am willing to forgive the not-so-good dinner.

When I stopped following job search advice, I found work!

Immigrating to a new country is never easy. The culture shock, temperature changes, and being unemployed are just some of the many things one would experience when moving to a new country.

In my case, I immigrated to Canada from Philippines. Not much culture shock since Philippines was heavily influenced by the Americans but the temperature change from hot to cold was something my body still needs adjusting to. The most difficult challenge of all (at least for me) was being unemployed.


I was happy with my career at Philippines. I work with amazing people (hello QSR team!) and I love what I do - training and helping schools use Google Apps in the classroom, is a rewarding thing to do. I am not talking about the monetary reward but more on the fulfillment of working with teachers and their professional growth.


When I arrive in Canada, I was obviously unemployed. It was tough. I was so confident that I'll be able to find work right away but I didn't. I am lucky, though, that my p…

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.
