Christmas 2014

Some highlights of my Christmas :)


I handed out this card as a gift to friends.
Last year some of our friends also received something like this, (I forgot to blog about that)
I hope that through this, some of our friends will learn about the many ways of helping our furry friends in need. 

M and I also agreed not to buy each other a gift and just give a donation to PART.
I'm already thankful for my "unwrapped" gifts and besides, my wishlist is becoming bongga like a kitchen makeover or a new condo lol ;p

Encarnacion Salon

Yesterday, I accompanied one of my bff for a pampering session in Binan Laguna - foot spa, mani, pedi and haircut

madami palang tao sa salon pag bisperas

aaand I'm short hair again!

I plan to donate my hair to cancer patients.
 I learned that you can send it  to Papemelroti and Human Nature stores :)

I got home at around 5PM, I still have time to wrap my gifts.
I gave Human Nature products to some of our relatives  :)

Noche Buena

 We have a simple feast after opening our gifts.

spaghetti, chicken and pork bbq, lechon paksiw, lumpiang shanghai, macaroni salad 
and some sweets gifts

Fruitcake! I haven't tasted one for the longest time :)
I used to hate this when I was a kid lolz!

I hope that we all have a wonderful and meaningful Christmas. Enjoy!


Memory Lane Tagaytay

For the 3rd time in a month, we're back again in Tagaytay!
This time, it's a get together with my highschool bffs.
One of them saw my Sky Ranch post and suggested that we also visit it.

I suggested to have our lunch first at the pretty place of Memory Lane.

We ordered their Tagaytay Bulalo (good for 4). Huge servings compared to Leslies. 
Very tasty soup and lots of veggies and meat :) 
M said that the meat is not as soft as Leslies but I didn't notice that hehe

Tagaytay Bulalo Php695

 My friend was craving for a sinigang so we had another order of a soupy bowl.
asim kilig!
Sinigang Bangus Belly Php495
 I don't know why they still order a bulalo steak ;p
The four of us were already full from the bulalo and sinigang.
This one does not complement the two soups that we had before. 
I think it's better to eat with fried foods.
Bulalo Steak Php395

There is also an area inside where they sell assorted cute stuff.

After  our long chat of catch ups and satisfying ourselves with taking photos of everything, 
we headed to Sky Ranch, where we continued our chat while strolling :)


Sky Ranch Tagaytay

We're back to Tagaytay again to celebrate my mom's birthday in advance.


Lunch @ Leslie's

There's a branch of Leslie's inside SkyRanch. Other food establishments I saw are Kuse, Uncle Cheffy, Rue Bourbon, Krispy Kreme, KFC , food stalls of Master Siomai, Bibingkinitan, Waffles, TJ hotdogs, etc (parang mall ba). 

I chose Leslie's to experience eating bulalo again. Compared to Alegre's, Leslie's bulalo has a a very few veggies and a very, very soft meat :)

Other items we ordered: Sizzling Kangkong, Fried tawilis and Pork Sisig.
Hmm the kangkong taste weird, not good to combine with everything. 

Then we went inside Skyranch :)
My lil bro and cousins enjoyed some rides while the adults just strolled around.

We also passed by Loumars. 
Their buko tart (P190) is overly sweet for my taste and has very few buko fillings.

My fave take home of the day: 

There was a manong who sells delicious suman cassava in Petron located at the fork going to Mahogany market. I bought 12 pcs for P100 :)


Tagaytay: Mahogany Market, Gourmet Farm

Tagaytay trip again! This time M and I went to Mahogany Market :)

I didn't notice their tarp while choosing where to order.
We only realized when we were seated, lucky for us to be able to try the "best".

Our order arrived immediately, Bulalo which is good for 2-3 persons.
The lady attendant helped us served the bulalo into to two bowls.
Our total order of bulalo + 3 rice costs P395

While waiting, I prepared our patis+calamansi sauce

Lots of Pechay! 

This is the first time I tried bulalo in Tagaytay so I can't say if this is the 'best'.
For me, Nilagang Baka is similar to Bulalo in the way it is cook so I prefer a very, very soft meat and a very flavorful soup.
Alegre's version has a flavorful soup and a bit chewy meat or maybe it is because the meat has a lot of litid.
I thought we will not be able to finish that huge serving but the patis+calamansi sauce will 
made you eat a lot of rice, sip the soup and just enjoy everything.

Alegre's staff were also very attentive to ask our needs and refill our bowls, how was that for a carinderia service ;p

Then palengke time :)

We bought: Tuyo and baby tawilis (3 for P100) ,
a pack of lettuce for only P30!

and Pinyapples. The jolly manong gave us a 3 for P100 deal from his usual price of P45 each ;p 

and I bought a pot of sweet basil for P30 :)

I thought we can spot some coffee vendors in mahogany market but I can't find any so before going home, we stopped at Gourmet Farm for a cup of coffee.

We also went home with 2 packs of Manila Blend coffee and lettuce chips :)

We took the Silang road to exit at Carmona (first timers). :)


Laguna Stopover: Ted's, Lety's

After our Liliw trip, we stopped at Ted's along Sta Cruz hi-way for coffee.
We didn't order anything aside from that. 
I just snapped some photos of the place while waiting for our order ;p

If coming from Pagsanjan, Ted's is on the right side of the road.

Pretty place :)

We also checked out their separate store for takeout. The cakes ranges P600 and up

Long black coffee Php55

The coffee drinks are very affordable but I find the other items on the menu  a bit pricey (Manila price ba

We also stopped at Lety's in LB, I prefer Lety's over  The Original's and Collete's.
At 3PM their buko pie were all sold out :/
I just bought cassava cake which is equally good. \(^_^)/
