Fiesta Somewhere in Cavite

This is a very very late post. Sorry I forgot where exactly in Cavite it was and I've even forgotten the name of their patron saint since this was months ago. It's my brother in law's officemate. My sister invited me to come with them and since it's fiesta, I agreed immediately. They prepared a lot of food but it was this oyster that we enjoyed eating.

It tasted good especially when we dipped it into pinakurat (a visayan vinegar). We ate about 2 to 3 small buckets of oysters. I think they got this near the beach since the beach was a few walks away. While eating oysters, we drank a bottle of wine and it was really awesome!

After eating, the owner of the house accompanied us to the beach since we all wanted to see it. While on our way to the beach, I took a picture around the area and some are weird signage.

I know my English is not perfect, too. But quite funny, ayt?

Another one, this resort is located just a little bit behind BIL's officemate's house. Why do have to go to Florida when Miami is just located in Cavite? Just kidding...

My sister and I both love taking pictures. So we took some pictures while we where on the beach. The beach wasn't that clear. It was dark. We didn't go swimming since we didn't bring extra clothes. We didn't have any idea that the beach was this near from their house.

Candid shot care of my sister. Love it! You can see on this picture on how the beach looks.

As what my sister told me, 'mag-pose sa bangka!' So I did and it looked good.

 From that day on, I started to appreciate eating oyster. I used to hate eating baked oysters but because of this experience, I start liking it and making it as one of my favorite foods. I even tried the Rockefeller in Oyster Boy and it was really yummy. 

Twin Eggplant


I saw this eggplant while I was buying veggies so I decided to buy it and share it to your guys. It's my first to see a twin eggplant. =)

That is Stealing!

I heard a noise outside our house so I tried to peep on our window to check it out and to my surprise, I saw our neighbor harvesting the fruits of our mango tree! If I'm not mistaken, they were able to get a bunch of mango fruits about more or less 2 big plastic bags. That's a lot! It's not that I don't want to give them but they should have asked permission from the owner first. It's a sign of disrespect to neighbor.

Our neighbor together with her panungkit! So rude! She just kept on harvesting the fruits without our permission. Actually, her whole family are harvesting. What a great way to spend time with the family.


So after a couple of months, we decided to cut the tree down to avoid many issues. I will really miss our mango tree especially now that it's supposed to start bearing flowers. No more fresh mango tree for me. =(

First Time at Ocean Adventure

This is actually a late post. We were supposed to go swimming in Subic that time but my sister had changed her mind when we reached Subic when she saw the 'To Ocean Adventure Sign.' No one objected since we were all first timers. We arrived there at almost 12:00 noon so we hurriedly took our lunch there since the second set of shows will start by 1:00 pm.

Just wanna share this to you just in case you wanna know the entrance fee.

The Eco Theater is the first stop. Here are the pictures:

The two Aetas are demonstrating on how to make fire out of bamboo but they failed to do it so assuming na lang na may fire. ^_^



I saw this guy on TV5. He was interviewed regarding the bats in Subic.







Seaside Stadium...



This is my favorite. This creature is huge. I forgot what kind of creature he is but he is not a dolphin. He was trying to imitate the shark and he looks so cute there.
I was I could be a dolphin trainer too so I can do the same. Kakainggit... =)


I forgot the name of this show already. Memory gap?
There are two guys who are doing some exhibitions.

Olongapo Jones and Pawee the cute mascot =)

Another cute mascot, Leila =)

This was the last show...

Belat!!! What a cute sea lion.

I want a kiss, too.



Sea lions waving goodbye...

Close encounter with the dolphin.

This kid is really funny. He's making fun of us while taking pictures. He was scolded by his mom afterwards. LOL

We went to Zoobic Safari afterwards because they had a 'Night Safari' that time but unfortunately, my camera's battery was dead already.

Souvenirs!

Next time, my camera will always be ready 'coz I bought a spare battery for it. It was an unexpected tour. We all thought that we were just go swimming in Subic but sometimes the unplanned activities will be more fun and enjoyable.

Hoping for the Best

The day has ended and so my IELTS exam. I don't know if I should be happy that it's already over or get depressed while waiting for the result. As I have said before, this is my fourth time taking this exam and it's no joke at all 'coz I've been spending a lot of money for this and been wasting time because I wasn't able to reach the cap for this year just because I didn't meet the required score. Damn that .50! That's all that missing in my score in my Reading Test when I first took the exam and I should have submitted my documents to the embassy already. Well, everything happens for a reason. I did my very best this time and I was a bit confident with my answers though I don't want to make sure that I will meet the scores. That's how bad I want to migrate to Canada 'coz the system in hiring nurses here in the Philippines is bullsh*t especially when you apply to government hospitals. It's a backer/kakilala/kamag-anak system. At first, I didn't want to believe it but now I've realized that it's the truth. If you don't have those I've mentioned then you have to wait for a long time or better yet, don't wait anymore and just apply as call center agent, medical representative, etc.

Well, enough of those sentiments, I know God is with me and He has better plans for me pero sana bigyan Niya ko ng chance to migrate ^_^. 

After the exam, Paul picked me up and we had lunch together in a small Thai restaurant somewhere in Pasig.

I ordered the Thai iced tea. It tastes like milk tea. Not bad.

Beef curry.

Tom Yum

The lunch wasn't that bad maybe I just expected a lot but Paul and I were still able to finish the food. Afterwards, we went home 'coz I'm a bit tired already.

Wish me luck sisses, I hope this will be my last IELTS exam.

That's the Power of Blogging

I blogged about my rants about our former housemaid just this year and to my surprise, she read about it. She got really mad at me and she confronted our Aunt in the province regarding this matter. According to my Auntie, our former maid was freakin' mad on what I did to her. She cannot contact me anymore since she no longer have my contact number. Sumugod pa daw talaga sa house ng Aunt ko well who would expect that she wouldn't behave that way. 

Because of what she did, it gave me a good reason not to delete my blog post about her nor even her picture. She deserves it. In the first place, she should've been ready for the consequences that might happen the moment she did that nasty thing to us. Anu ba naman ang magpaalam ng maayos kung ayaw na pala niya sa amin. Right? Now, you reap what you sow. Everything that I've written are all true. No more no less so she doesn't have the right to get mad at me nor even to my Aunt (she's the one who referred the maid to us). She even told my Aunt na quits na daw kami sa debts niya because of what I did to her. Hello! We already expected that she will never pay her debt. Sorry, I have already blogged about you.

I have already forgiven her. Besides, it's already a past. We have to move on regarding this matter. That's the consequence of what she did so she should accept it and change her wrongdoings. I blogged it because I want her to know my feelings about it and to teach her a lesson as well. At least because of my blog she was able to know it. I hope she learns her lesson well.

Gourmet's Cafe at Tagaytay

Oftentimes, before we reach the junction in Tagaytay, we drop by at this restaurant first to have a taste of their salad. They offer organic dishes fresh from their farm so I guess that's one of the reason why their salad is delicious. I really want to visit their farm since the entrance is free if you're a customer but we are always late. The farm closes to pubic at 3:00 p.m. and we always didn't make it everytime we go there. I missed this place so much because we barely visit it this year. We last visited the resto last April and they have just expanded.

Off course, I ordered salad. They offer buffet style but what I don't like about it is that you are not allowed to go back to the salad bar and the plate was (I think) just medium in size. So I tried to fill the plate with lettuce and other ingredients as much as I can.

I love their lemonade!

Paul ordered his favorite red beet salad. He always order this everytime we eat there.

This is their new restaurant. Iba pa yung nasa taas which they now call the cafe where we always used to eat and this one is now the restaurant.

Joy ride! I wish I could take a look at their farm when we get back.

I never tried the other foods on their menu like the burgers and pizza. They look delicious! I really love salad especially lettuce that's why we were never able to order other variants.
