Ranchy, our loyal pet dog!

Ranchy, was the name given by Geof to our pet dog.
Ranchy, a Pinoy Askal from Floridablanca, Pampanga which was given to us by Rayfer sometime in 2005. She has been our pet and guard dog ever since. When Geof had dengue, we believed she took some of the pain from Geof because she suddenly had an ear infection when Geof was in the hospital. Today, July 28, 2016, I still had the chance to pet her. And then she had her last breath and send her farewell to us.

Goodbye, Ranchy, our loyal dog for more than 10 years. Thank you for keeping us safe. Rest in peace. :-(


Sleep well our loyal pet.

Tamarind - A Taste of Thai

Wow! Tamarind - A Taste of Thai at SM North - The Block at the 1st floor level near the Hypermart will be one of my favorite Thai restos here in QC. We ordered Tom Yum, Crispy Noodles and Yelloy Beef Curry. All the dishes were great - taste like authentic Thai food.  The price is a little bit high ranging from P200 to P400 per dish. But the food was good and the service was great. We even had to take home the Yellow Beef Curry which Geof enjoyed eating at home.

New Favorite Restos in Baguio City

Baguio City is not only the summer capital of the Philippines. It's also the place for good and affordable food. During my frequent visits at Baguio City specifically at St. Louis University where we (DLSU faculty) are conducting graduate course lectures for MSCE faculty in the region, I discovered good food in Baguio City.

Good Taste near Burnham Park is a popular Chinese resto that serves cheap and tasty dishes at big servings. During one visit, we ordered fried rice, birds' nest soup, chopsuey and lechon kawali. Our bill is only P400.00+.  And we even had to take-out the left-overs which we gave to the garbage guys along the park. People say that at Good Taste, eating there is always a feast!

 Ocha Asian Cuisine along Session Road near Don Henrico's is my favorite resto for Thai and Japanese dishes.In my last visit, we ordered Tom Yum Goong, Red Beef Curry and Shrimp Tempura. The food was really good and very authentic. Their ice cream was also awesome. Our bill was P600.00+
