Durham White Beach Resort

Posted: July 10, 2013 in Uncategorized

Before my boss went back to Japan, he invited us to go to Tubuelan. This town is  somewhere in the south. We went there by a private bus rented by Yanagawa-san. It was a long ride, about 3 hours or more from the City.

I was actually having second thoughts of joining but I cannot say no to him. He is after all a really good boss and he was very excited about the tour so I went ahead with the plan.

The place is amazingly perfect with a white sand beach and impressively calm water. I could swim here but unfortunately I was not able to bring extra clothes with me.

Here’s the rest of the Place:

I don’t know but I lost some of the photos that I took. I don’t know why but I can’t find it. This is what will happen when you don’t blog it right away. You will have the chance to lose some of your good memories. You could lost a photo like I did.

We had buffet lunch. Other than this, we had letchon, a fish fillet. Unfortunately these are the only food pics that I was able to retrieve. 😦

With Brigs. LOL. He is a lot younger than I am. He is 23 something. I love the fact that he is treating me like his older sister. I kept on reminding him that his hair disturbs me. I can’t concentrate talking to him because of the kind of hair he has wahahahahah

Level Eight

Posted: July 10, 2013 in Life On A Daily Basis

I used to like night out in my early 20’s. We normally hang out at Mango near Robinson with my pals. Mostly single women like me. Its usually videoke session and when we have enough we go straight at a disco house within the place. I thought I kind of enjoy it that way. 

That’s part of my youth. Something that I will never be able to forget. Something that I understand about young people these days. But, that was years ago, as I mature or lets just be more direct. As I grow old, I think I don’t enjoy it as much as I used to. For me, its no longer fun.

Fun or no fun it doesn’t really matter when you’re not paying. When I am not paying :-). I get another chance for a night out with my office mates last month.  After we had dinner we went straight to Level Eight in Adnama Bldg, Larazabal Ave. Reclamation Area, Mandaue City. 

This place is somewhere near Cebu Doctor’s University and a few blocks from Sam’s 50 Dinner. The entrance fee is at 250 pesos and it’s consumable on weekdays for weekends I’ve read that entrance is at 500 pesos. I thought the place is quiet expensive. Too expensive for a 58-peso girl like me. 

Here’s what you could expect of the place:

Yes, Melva was there too. Have I mentioned that I really really miss this guy? I had had a few close guy friends. He is one of those. He is one good friend. 🙂

The entrance fee is consumable. So you can try out their menu. Mostly drinks but they have pika-pika foods too

Image

 

Fish & Chips @ 280 pesos ( with tartar sauce, beer battered fish fillet with fries)

Image

 

Tortila Ensal da @ 195 pesos (Homemade tortilla, spiced beef cheese, sour cream and tonato toppings)

I could only show you 2 pika-pika because that night we were too full to order many. We had drinks though. I had mango shake and 1 round of San Mig Light which by the way Melva consumed for me for your information.

Image 

My mango shake. I forgot the rate but I think a hundred plus. Maybe around 120 pesos.

Image

 

This is what Brig’s had. He took me by surprised. He doesn’t drink beer? I really don’t know, I will have to clarify it with him next time. I know, I know. I am being silly but hey. He doesn’t drink beer? Who is he kidding, me?

Image

This is around 80 pesos. My share for the night. 

Image

 

 

Why was I busy texting? Why?

Image

Image

They have live band in most nights. They close until 2:00 am.

One thing that I almost forgot to mention. There are a lot of DI’s in the place. The dance instructors were bugging us to dance with them. Don’t I hate them? I do despise them! They made me lost my desire to dance. LOL. 

The place minus the DI’s would have been better.

How comfortable 🙂

Family Farm

Posted: July 7, 2013 in Restaurants

Dining out is something that I will always love. What I like most about my job is the opportunity that it gives me. I don’t enjoy it as much as I used to but I am trying my best to make the most of it.

 At Riza’s last day of work last June, we went to Family Farm in Sangi Road Pajo, Lapu-Lapu City. That’s the address that appears at goggle search. LOL. I don’t know exactly the location. All I know is, there was heavy traffic on our way to this restaurant. I thought I was going to get sick.

My boss was trying to look for a cheaper restaurant. We were supposed to dine at AA but the branch in Pusok was packed that night as most of the nights so we decided to take Arleada’s suggestion to dine here. I was not that excited, but I was hopeful that the restaurant would atleast look presentable.

When we arrived, I was beaming with approval at the sight of the restaurant. Here’s what I saw…

Yes, it looks like a farm to me 🙂

This is a cute place, the kids will surely love this place. It sure is a farm to me. I’d like it more if the carabao is really true. 

Here’s the food:

Image

 

Image

beef steak with onion at 180 pesos

Image

pancit cantoon at 95 pesos

Image

 

buttered chicken at 150 pesos

Image

 

chopsuey at 75 pesos

Image

 

pork belly at 75 pesos

Image

 

Pochero at 250 pesos

Image

 

ice tea tower at 150 pesos

I have no complain where the food is concern. They really have big servings. Everything is like family size servings. I am satisfied with it unlike that of Luto ni Nanay. This restaurant is way better. 

I was drooling over their chicken. I just love it. I thought 150 pesos rate is just enough. Not too expensive. I especially love pork belly and I can’t seem to get over their beef steak with lots of onions. The pochero tasted okay. The ice tea tower is just too sweet. Too sweet for my likings. 

Image

This is an amazing concept!

Image

They have singers too. The gurl sang a Japanese song. I wondered if she understood what she was singing about. 🙂 You could request a song too.

We paid around 1,600. I tell you this is one cheap restaurant. The food is okay but the waiters were really slow in serving. You have to tell them what to do. I don’t think they are trained to do the job. What a pity of such a good restaurant but such really lousy waitresses. 

This restaurant is good for family gatherings. You should also try it here
