Food Trip in Malugay Street: Ara Korean Restaurant and Rocci Coffee + Chocolate

Last February 6, +Jomar+Mitch, and I were granted Korean Visa. To celebrate, we set forth to Malugay Street and had a good Korean dinner at Ara Korean Restaurant along Malugay Street in Makati City. It was not the best Korea place I've tried in the Metro. I still prefer the authenticity of Happy Han Bapsang in Ortigas, the ambiance of Maru in Jupiter Street, and the delicious food from Samgyupsalamat near De La Salle University - Manila.

After dinner, we went to the Korean grocery connected to Ara. Jomar and I were able to purchase frozen Korean dumplings (which I love) for Php 150.00. It's like Php 3.00 per dumpling. Amazing!

We had dessert in Rocci Coffee + Chocolate which is two stores away from Ara. They serve delicious pastries. I asked if they deliver since it's almost Valentine's when we had our desserts there, they said no. Too bad. I mean the food is really great and I have not heard of any rave about the delicious food they are offering.

February 2017: Food and Weather

I may have posted this line before, I have this love-hate relationship with my new home country. Though Canada still doesn't feel home, most of the time, I still feel like I am just on vacation and can't wait to go back home to the Philippines.

Anyway, I love Canada! This last winter season (December to February) is the worst snow British Columbia has seen in x number years, specifically in Metro Vancouver. Growing up in a tropical country, I would only dream of seeing snow gently falling from the sky like in the movies. But being able to see it with my own eyes and touch it while waiting for a bus is really a dream come true. I love the snow and how gently it would fall. The biggest reason of this love and amazement for snow is it's my first time to experience it. But the day or two after a snowfall, is just really annoying. Icy roads, icy sidewalk, icy everything and the fear of slipping is something difficult to live with.
