Ca Phe Saigon – Marikina City

I found this hidden gem right in the middle of a neighborhood in Marikina. The food is so good! I enjoyed my meal so much..I ran out of words.

I enjoyed and devoured three pieces of spring rolls filled with rice vermicelli, mint leaves, pork strips, and shrimps and a bowl of  Pho’ (beef noodles soup).  Both are simple, fresh, and filling…they totally hit the spot! To amp the flavor, I added hoisin sauce and chili sauce. I will definitely come back for the Pho and will try the Banh Mi and Ca phe next time.

Cebu Adventure (Day 2) Zubuchon and more

We pigged out the whole day…I’m not complaining. That irresistible lechon from Zubuchon paired with the delicious concoction of soy sauce, calamansi, tomato, onion, and kamias dip is the bomb!

We had dinner at Bigby’s after the event and capped the night with coffee and black forest icebox cake. What a way to end the trip! Til next time, Cebu!

Teatrong Mulat ng Pilipinas

It is great to watch a different kind of show where music, movements, and colorful puppets tell stories without the use of words. Children and adults enjoyed watching the performance of Teatrong Mulat ng Pilipinas.

Let us cultivate our appreciation on Philippine arts and culture by supporting local arts and promoting events.

Autism Society Philippines – Marikina

The Autism Society of the Philippines Marikina Chapter held a seminar on Handling Children with Special Needs at Home and in School last August 12, 2017. Tips and techniques in managing behavior to maximize learning were shared by guest speakers Ms. Merlita Tatlonghari- Dailo, Teacher Karla Tolentino OTRP, and Teacher Erika Fukushima CSP-PASP. The highlight of the program is Allen Christian Garcia’s speech. He is a Senior in UST taking up BS Applied Mathematics. His message to individuals with exceptionalities is to connect with family and friends because they are the ones who will support them well.

There were more than 200 participants who attended the event. You may view segments of the program:

Weekend Warriors in Bulacan

We survived this trip and reached our destination by the power of “Asking for Directions”. We probably had more than 5 stop overs to ask where Hagonoy is. We missed 2 exits in NLEX and had to drive back south and exit at Sta. Rita.

Carla, Kuya Art, and I were on a quest for some seafood. It turned out to be a lot more fun than anticipated as we discovered interesting places.

Now, the power of “Bargaining” got us the best deals. Three buckets of seafood and we’re good to go. On our way home, we passed by Malolos and took photos of the Barasoain Church. Yep, that church you see on the old 20 peso bill.

Thinking what else to see in Bulacan, chicharon came to my mind. We drove to Sta. Maria for some BACK FAT action.

Oh, and we get to adore some antique houses too.

After all, I can say that it was an awesome 12-hour weekend trip. Tired…but happy.

To Jay, may chicharon ako for you. 🙂

Thanks to Kuya and Ate Liza sa masarap na lunch and sa pagsama sa amin maghanap ng seafood. Sa uulitin po.

Flaming Moo Grilled Burgers – Novaliches

Hi there! I’m starting my year right by updating my blog. Cheers to more food trips and travel adventures this 2016!

I’d like to thank my sidekick, Carla, who is easy to drag on a food trip. Out of the countless lists of food we like, it is meat that stands out – burger, steak, kebab, anything meat. She has been telling me about this food truck along Quirino Hway (it is walking distance from Robinsons Mall Fairview going to Zabarte) and it was last December when we had the chance to check it out.

We arrived at Flaming Moo Grilled Burgers around 7pm and the place was starting to get busy with 3 tables occupied. It’s interesting to watch how food is prepared in such a compact space

Carla had the Classic Moo burger (Php65). It’s a single patty burger with tomato, lettuce, cucumber, and onion.

I had the Moo Moo Burger (Php100). It’s a juicy burger loaded with TLC, bacon, cheese, caramelized onion and mushroom, and topped with cheese sauce.

DSC_0028We also had french fries (Php25) and Raspberry Iced Tea (Php25). Yes, it’s that affordable. The burgers were good, tasty, and juicy. They don’t skimp on the quality of the ingredients. Bonus: mayo, mustard, ketchup (no extra charge)

Service was fast and done with a smile. 🙂

Flaming Moo is a simple and unpretentious food truck to get affordable and decent meals. We have yet to try the other burgers on the menu and the sausages too. We definitely have to visit soon.
