Halo-Halo at Razon's of Guagua

Halo-Halo from Razon's of Guagua is our favourite date night dessert.


Merienda at Via Mare Oyster Bar

Food that we will miss and difficult to find when we go back to Canada.

Puto Bumbong


Dinner with Happy Friends at The Old Spaghetti House (ToSH)

Our last dinner in the Philippines before we fly back to Canada is with happy friends at The Old Spaghetti House (ToSH) in Robinson's Forum Pioneer.

My favourite: Golden Crusted Chicken, Ham and Cheese Crepe with Angel Hair Pomodoro

Chicken Parmigiana with Spaghetti Pomodoro

Lunch at Giligan's

My favourite restaurant in the Philippines. Say all you want but I love the Kare-Kareng Gulay, Crispy Sisig, and Garlic Fried Chicken from Giligan's Restaurant.

Favourite Food!

KFC for Breakfast

I tried KFC from Canada, China, Malaysia, and the Philippines and below are my opinion. Malaysia has the most flavourful spicy chicken (because they used more spices), but the Philippines has the best gravy.

For breakfast today (yes, breakfast), I ate all the KFC food I want to eat because the KFC in Canada is not as good.

2-pc Spicy Fried Chicken, Small Fries, and Small Hotshots

Day 0 of Vacation: YVR to NRT to NAIA

Vacation! The last 8 months is all about the next two weeks. We're off to the The Philippines to get married again! In this blog, I'll focus on the things we ate and we ate a lot!

Breakfast and Lunch in YVR

Our flight is at 2:25 PM (Pacific Time), but we're so excited that we're already at the airport at around 9:00 AM. We took a Yellow Cab going to Vancouver International Airport (YVR), and knowing full well that the check-in counter will still be close, we grabbed breakfast at Tim Hortons.

By 12:00 NN, we're done checking in and going to security. We're enjoying our Chinese cuisine lunch at a place called Hanami Sushi (yes, I know, it's confusing). After lunch, I asked hubby to buy me Starbucks drinks. We're now waiting at the Gate.


Japan Airlines

I have a new favourite airline. Actually, it's not the airline that I like exactly but the planes they use. The chairs are arranged 2-4-2. Yes, there are only two seats near the window, so I have the window seat, and hubby is on the aisle seat. It's so much easier to move around without a third person to worry about.


I prefer food from China Airlines. The biggest surprise in JAL flight food is they give you a cup of ice cream. I didn't finish it, but it's such a pleasant surprise.

Amusing to see a local (Vancouver) gelato maker supplying for JAL! Mario's Gelati.

Narita International Airport (NRT)

Our plane arrived in Japan, and we have less than 2 hours to go through security and board our connecting flight to Manila. We wanted to explore, but it has to wait on our return.

For now, we went directly to our boarding gate and ate at the closest convenience store. I would have ordered the curry, but it would take 10 minutes, so I opted for their ramen and noodles.



Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA)

At around 10:30 PM (Philippine Time), we arrived safely in Manila. I was tired and angry (my default mood after flying trans-pacific). Our flight left Japan 1-hour late, and we were circling around NAIA for around 30-minutes (according to hubby - I was sound asleep when they made announcements) because of airport traffic.

Vegetable Keema Curry and Häagen-Dazs Matcha Ice Cream

That's it for Day 0 of our vacation!

Hidden Gem inside Malacañang compound: Casa Roces

Casa Roces is a hidden gem inside Malacañang Palace compound. The service is excellent, and the food is delicious. However, it's costly. I say it's worth it.

Paella Valencia

All-Time Pinoy Personal Favorite: Giligan's Restaurant

Giligan's Restaurant is one of my favourite restaurants in the Philippines.

Kare-Kareng Gulay, Fried Garlic Chicken, and Crispy Pork Sisig
