Photohunt: Spots


I am sure everyone of us have our favorite food SPOTS that become our favorite for all season. Banapple is a bakery and cafe that serves not only pies, cakes and desserts but also good food for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Here are some of our favorites (You can click the thumbnails for a larger view):



Photohunt: Entwine


(Please click to enlarge the thumbnails.)

What crossed my mind when I landed on The Saturday PhotoHunt page seeing the theme was pastas and noodles.  We are a family that love these entwined and entangled food. I mean, who would not?

The first two (2) photos are from restaurants/food chains while the next two (2) are my own creation – an éclat of my cooking skills.

Photohunt: Morning

One Sunday morning, we had our ‘almost brunch’ at  a coffee house called The Sweet Spot.  It is such a cozy place located at Maginhawa St., Sikatuna Village, perfect for a lazy Sunday morning.  It has a nook with books, too!  That part is what I love about the place.

Hello to all Photohunters at Photohunt! I am back again. 😀

Photohunt: Focus/Technical

You can see how these pretty little visitors were focused on what Kay was telling them.  Of course, these little ones have no idea about the technical stuff of doing these pieces of art works.

Here is another pic.


Today there will surely be a lot of FOCUS pictures here.

Photohunt: Deluxe


Her name is Dianne. She is truly one admirable lady who had given us deluxe service when we had our dinner last night at Mandarin Sky, a Chinese shabu-shabu restaurant. She patiently explained each meal we got interested in and suggested the best seller soup which is the spinach soup. She always checked if we wanted something or we liked to have a refill of the tea.

I’ll see what the other photohunters have for this Saturday’s theme.

(You will discover many beautiful destinations here.)

If given the chance, I would take you to the UP Oval where we could jog or brisk walk. I would like you to try the yummy taho.


What is taho, you will ask?

From Wikipedia:

Taho (Tagalog: [t??ho?]) (Chinese: ??; Pe?h-?e-j?: t?u-hue) is a Philippine snack food made of fresh soft/silken tofu, arnibal (sweetener and flavoring), and sago pearl (similar to tapioca pearls).[2] This staple comfort food is a signature sweet and taho peddlers can be found all over the country. The Indonesian and Malaysian equivalent of this snack is tauhue.

Curious as a Cat #408

Got curious as a cat again!

1) Who is the funniest comedian, in your opinion?

I will go with the local comedian.  I find Dolphy very funny.  Until now, for me, there isn’t a comedian who has that ‘punch’.  It seems that almost every one of them are copy cats.


2) Are there any interesting things your name spells with the letters rearranged (i.e. anagramed)?

Is there such a thing as ASS RAIN? That’s the best I can do with it.  😀

3) If you could be a character from any book you’ve read, who would you be?

Catelyn, from The Game of Thrones.  I am like her in ways where she is always ready to do things just to protect her children, even if they endanger her.

4) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.

The picture above reminds me of barriers, or of differences. To expand it more, it tells of chaos between individuals of differing opinions and beliefs. It tells also of how a man’s mental made up is different from that of a woman’s.

But even with differences, thing can be straightened if laid out carefully, and with much consideration.  Just like the picture above that ended up okay because the tiles were neatly arranged from both sides.  🙂  Did I stretch so much?
