We brought the coffee wine from Baguio City's Tam-awan Village. The wine has about 7.5% alcohol and one bottle costs P150.00. According to the label, the wine was organically fermented from coffee Arabica and the main ingredients are coffee, water and sugar. It is manufactured by Winers.

We visited Star City last May 16, 2009 because Geof was so insistent to see Snow World. We were disappointed, though, because Snow World is just one big freezer with temperature of about 15 degrees C. On display are very pathetic ice carvings - "you can 't appreciate them much because it's too cold inside", Geof remarked. After Geof tried sliding on ice, we left since Julia was almost freezing and Geof continuedly coughed. We were inside for about ten minutes only.
Dino Island, on the otherhand, was an interesting and excting experience. It is a very informative attraction where kids and adults will learn about the prehistoric creatures. On display are dinosaur skeletons, fossils and dinosaurs moving through Japanese robotic technology. As you view the dinosaurs, you can also watch a video to get detailed information about them such as "do you know that a Stegosaurus is the dumbest dinosaur because it's brain is too small, only the size of a walnut," "Dino" is the term for a baby T-Rex," "The T-rex is 40 ft long but its arms are only 3 ft long." At the Dino Island Museum, you will see fossils and dinosaur eggs. For a fee of P160 (P100 Dino Isalnd + P60 Star City), you will experience an amazing adventure as your travel back in time.
Watch the Dino Island video up to the end and you will discover that there are living dinosaurs among us. He he he!

We also had meals/ snacks and/or coffee in other restos but they are not memorable to even occupy a space here -- except the resto where we had halo-halo with crushed ice as hard as a rock. I called the waiter to show him how impossible it was to eat the halo-halo with Mt Everest blocking the spoon. He was good natured enough to crush the ice for us (and realized how hard it really was when he tried to pick the ice). If only restos offering halo-halo would get a shaving device that would produce shaved ice like that in Razon's.... For myself, I ordered coffee, thinking that maybe it would redeem the resto if they offer good coffee. Alas, the brewed coffee was too mild (malabnaw) that a 3-in-1 instant coffee actually taste better. Not going back in that resto again.
By the way, we also had breakfast at Camp John Hay's Choco-late de Batirol. It's one of the saving grace of our Baguio trip - but Batirol deserves a separate blog entry all to itself.
