Hello 2019!

Image
2018 has been a busy year. I stopped writing here mid of last year because I got promoted at work (yay!) but has been really busy.

One of my goal for this year (and was my goal last year) is to write 1 post each week. Last year is also the first time I didn't have a year-end summary. Oh well. Let's  be positive as we welcome the new year.

New Year's Eve I arrived in Canada last 2015 and I spent NYE for 2016, 2017, and 2018 thinking and dreaming of watching the fireworks in Downtown Vancouver. I didn't go those previous years because of the cold and crowd. I told my brother during my first NYE in Canada that we should book a hotel in Downtown where we could see the fireworks, avoid the crowd, and be warm.

Pan Pacific Hotel That dream came true NYE of 2019. Last September, I booked a hotel room at Pinnacle Hotel. However, in November, I learned that the fireworks display won't be visible from any of their rooms which is unfortunate. I, then, called Pan Pacific Hotel …

Where to eat in Baguio City?

I've been to Baguio quite a few times, and here I am trying to share about the excellent restaurants and yummy food I have tried.

Good Taste Cafe and Restaurant They serve great food served with the freshest available ingredients at affordable prices. I would recommend the Chopseuy, Beef Broccoli and Buttered Chicken.  +Jomar and I ordered those and we could not even finish one of the viands! Talk about takaw tingin.

O' Mai Khan This is my fave restaurant in Baguio EVER. No, I don't order the Mongolian buffet. Rather, I choose to explore their culinary expertise with the ala carte meals. My favourite right now is Kublai's Dream.


Food Trip in Maginhawa: Roberta Flavors of Asia, Cupcakes by Gremlins, and Cool Beans

This blog post is the 3rd one highlighting three restaurants in Maginhawa Street.

Previously, I've been to Crazy Katsu, Fancy Crepes, and Fruili Trattoria along Maginhawa Street inside the U.P. Village, Quezon City, Philippines. Yesterday (since it was a holiday), Jomar and I had our holiday date. We decided to eat somewhere in Maginhawa.

Roberta Flavors of Asia (formerly called, Roberta Seafood Cantina) For lunch we went to Roberta, we ordered, Salt & Lemon Pepper Squid, Gising-Gising, Bagoong Rice, and Herbed Rice. Nothing was outstanding about what we ate. It was sad. The only consolation is the Herbed Rice which tasted fine.


Anniversary Celebration in Baguio

+Jomar Tigcal and I celebrated our second anniversary last August 4, 2013, in Baguio City with our dearest friends from both +GBG Philippines and the  +GDG Philippines.

The morning started with another round of delicious breakfast from +Azalea Baguio. Since we already checked out our room, we decided to stay in the common area of the three-bedroom suite of Mama +Chelle Gray and Ms. +Aileen Apolo.
