Double Three on July 3

Leave a comment

Updated post… Yipee!! 🙂

Today marks hubby’s double three! I planned simple surprises for him

The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach
The sumptuous buffet of Vikings is well raved because of the variety of foods, the flavorful dishes, unlimited drinks, and hey! they serve beer! The last time we were here, hubby wasn’t able to join us because of work. So, here we are (and here I am just a week apart from my last visit),  having yet again a gastronomic treat.

Now comes the manly stuff…
The second part of the unknown activity is just “across” the street

A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone—

The hubby looks like a pro! I went ahead and did the tutorial… sa tagal ko, natuto na daw sya. LOL

I was sooo nervous! Not because I might not hit the target, but because something might go wrong and… well… I’m holding an armed gun. My first ever question was “Hindi ba babalik un bala sa atin?” What if it doesn’t go through and goes back right to you? Gosh! May nerbyos yata ako. LOL

But nope, nothing like that happened. It was just my imagination :p

Nakakakaba, because I am actually firing a deadly weapon. Scared that I might drop it or the gun might malfunction… But I mustered the courage and finished the 50 ammos. Okay fine. I gave 2 rounds to the husband, then the rest was all mine.

We are both happy with the experience. He was so into it, while I was secretly waiting to quickly finish my ammos. hahaha 🙂 That does not mean I didn’t like it, I liked it! It was my idea after all. LOL. I recommend that we girls experience this, at least once in our life. A very masculine activity. So out of my comfort zone. If I wasn’t imaginative and nervous, I would have bought another set of ammos and savored the experience.

Bottom line: it is a good bonding activity with hubby. So kahit ninenerbyos ka, go! Conquer your fear!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my one and only!!!
I wish you more patience, wisdom and peace of mind.
I wish you both wealth and good health.
The fulfillment of your dreams.

Soon, I hope you feel the fruits of your labor, and may you be healthy and free from any form of illness.

Thank you for always trying to be the best person you can be. You are the best dad and best husband. We love you so so much!

King Bee

Hubby loves chinese food. For some reason, when we are hungry we end up forgetting this closest chinese resto and we end up eating at some other place.

Fortunately, in one of our hungry moments, we finally remembered King Bee, the Chinese restaurant outside our village.

We ordered siomai with quail egg — its looove. I remember my high school days in Miriam where the famous fried siomai is cooked with quail egg. I still want to go back for that.

Plus this turon looking appetizer but with veggies? — not really sure, it was on hubby’s side of the table.

 

Since it was merienda, I ordered birthday pansit, and for him, chopseuy rice. Much to our surprise, the smallest order of birthday pansit came in a huge serving, it must have been good for 4 pax. Nothing spectacular on both dishes. But for sure, we’d come back to try other dimsum and their version of other famous chinese dishes like beef with broccoli, lemon chicken, etc.


The Burger Project

Leave a comment

Hubby and I love to eat out. We are always on the look out for new places to try that is not a pain in the pocket. Its a joy to discover new restaurants that is “sulit“. If a food is expensive, and the food is good… that’s the way its supposed to be. Of course, with the price you pay, you expect nothing less. So with sulit food places, we feel like its worth our random trip 🙂

Whenever I get stressed with financial matters, Ironically, we end up out on the street… looking for something to eat. Thus, we end up spending. Labo noh?

So anyway, one stressful night, we traveled all the way to Quezon City. We heard there are several dining places in this strip at Teachers Village. With the drizziling weather, we passed by the long stretch at least 4 times back and forth and ended up at THE BURGER PROJECT.

I am not a burger fan, but I was hungry. It was worth a try.

To cut the story short, we made the perfect choice!

4 Things we didn’t expect

The-Burger-Project

1) We had to create our own burger using an actual FORM – A new twist to all the burger chains out there

2) The burger was generously filled with our chosen toppings

2) The patty is matabang as it is, but if you eat it the way it should be — a huge bite with the sandwich and toppings, it tastes really good! The bun looks like a home made sandwich

3) The Strawberry Milkshake alone is worth coming back for

4) It was a huge burger

Both hubby & I were glad we made the right choice. We will surely come back for another meat-y fix!

P.S.

We had an order of Mozarella too, sadly I didn’t really like it. Matabang din. Even the sauce is. Next time we’ll try their french fries and onion rings 🙂

No Meat Holy Week

2 Comments

This year, hubby & I plan to do a no meat week for holy week, starting Holy Monday to Black Saturday. This is hard because meat is part of our daily diet. or rather, our lack of a healthy diet.

So how are we surviving so far? Here’s the rundown. Just let me share though, I keep thinking, this no meat diet makes me hungry all the time. I may get fatter because when my stomach starts to rumble, I munch on chocolates. Baaaad

Monday

Breakfast: Tuna + Rice
Lunch: Noodles + Fish
Merienda: Chocolate
Dinner: Tilapia + Rice
Midnight Snack: Chocolates

Tuesday

Brunch: Cream Dory fish fillet + Pasta Verde + Green Salad
Merienda: Potato twist
Dinner: Tuna + Rice
Midnight Snack: Chocolates

Wednesday

Brunch: Fish + Tahong
Merienda: Seafood pansit lomi + Salt & pepper squid
Dinner: Baked oyster + Tuna sisig + Green mango + Chili garlic shrimp

Thursday

Breakfast: Tuna + Rice
Lunch: Filet-o-fish + french fries + oreo ice cream
Dinner:

Friday

Breakfast:
Lunch:
Dinner:

Saturday

Breakfast:
Lunch:
Dinner:

After this week, we hope to start a new diet… one that would not totally eliminate beef and pork but lessen its intake. We’d like to shift to chicken, seafood and vegetables. But that doesn’t mean we can no longer eat liempo, or sisig or kapukan, or kare-kare, or sinigang, bulalo, or nilaga — that would be torture. Just disciplined intake. Hope we work it out! 🙂

Worlds Best & Biryani

Biryani rice from World’s Best Persian Kebab, T.Morato

Look how long the grain is! Having a Palay family business, I couldn’t help but think how these rice could have grown this long. Was it mutated?  I’m pretty sure there might have been some human intervention. This kind couldn’t have grown naturally.

From Wikipedia, Biryani is:

Biryanibiriani, or beriani (Nastaliq script: بریانی) is a set of rice-based foods made with spices,rice (usually basmati) and meatfisheggs or vegetables. The name is derived from the Persianword beryā(n) (بریان) which means “fried” or “roasted”.[1]

It doesn’t seem fried or roasted, its just like your regular steamed rice but way longer. Its taste? Well, I didn’t really focused on it much because I was loving the kebab and my shawarma that came along with it. I was just binging on the overall goodness of my food! hehe 🙂 Really love this place! As I’ve said in one of my previous posts, this is the best kebab and shawarma place for me. And up to date, it still is!

Note: Sad to say, my sentiment does not apply to their other branches. Its just not the same.
