Mom & Tina's: Best Beef Tapa Ever!

I was craving for some really yummy tapa last week and The Memet knew just where to bring me.

I've been to Mom & Tina's several times, but I always ordered pasta. I even had my 30th birthday party there. Don't even try to stop and think about how old I am right now. Hahaha!

When The Memet and I met up with some of my high school friends a year or two ago, I remember ordering their tapa breakfast meal, and I've been hooked ever since! Read on to find out why.

Costa Pacifica Baler | Beach House

When The Memet and I were in Baler earlier this year, we stayed in Costa Pacifica because we wanted to treat ourselves to a posh hotel without having to pay a fortune.

While there, it was inevitable that we try out some of the food from Beach House's menu. Beach House is Costa Pacifica's in-house restaurant. Want to find out what we ate while we were there? Find out after the jump.

The Roads To and From Baler

If you're wondering how to get to and from Baler, there are 2 routes you can take. If you use your vehicle's GPS, it will direct you to drive through Pantabangan to and from. But The Memet and I decided to mix it up a bit.

On the way to Baler, we went through Pantabangan and then on the way home, we drove through Bongabon.

My Modern Korean Dining Experience at Eum•Ma•Ne

One of my friends from way back when was in the country for a while and since we hadn't seen each other in so many years, we wanted to do some catching up. After a few text messages, we finally agreed on a schedule - a lunch date at a restaurant in Capitol Commons where her husband works.

I wasn't really sure what to expect , but on the ride over, they told me that we'd be eating at a modern Korean restaurant. The first thing that came to mind? Kimchi!!! I love kimchi. Hehe!

2015: A Year of New Responsibilities

It's been almost three years since I left the corporate world and it's been a heck of a roller coaster ride.

In the span of almost three years, I went through months of doing completely nothing to going on last minute out of town escapades with The Memet. I joined bazaars and held garage sales, I even went around coordinating events for family and friends. Oh, and not to mention the handful of freelancing gigs that I did on the side.

This year, it seems like I'm going down a different path. It's nearly the end of the first quarter, and I think it's a good time to predict what I'll be doing for the rest of the year.

Hotel Quickly is Now in the Philippines!

Being the busy folks that we are, The Memet and I usually have a hard time planning some of our trips way in advance.

Back when I was working and The Memet had a different boss, we always had ample time to plan our trips and book our accommodations. We're looking at 3-6 months of advance planning here. But since I started working from home, The Memet's schedule has become more hectic and we don't usually have the luxury of time to prepare for our trips anymore.

Remember my birthday post from last year? I only found out that he had time for a quick out of town trip late that afternoon. Haha!

Well, something perfect just came up for folks who are perpetually in need of last minute hotel bookings - and I attended their press launch last week.

Baler | Gerry Shan's Eat-All-You-Can

Along Quezon St. in Baler's Barangay 2, The Memet and I found a small, unassuming restaurant. From the outside, it didn't look like much. But we were quite amazed at what we found when we set foot inside the place.

Baler | Dinner at Hungry Surfer

On our first night in Baler, The Memet and I went for a stroll on the boardwalk to check out what the "night life" was like in the area. The boardwalk was a bit dark and the area was mostly quiet, save for the sound of the crashing waves.

On our way back to Costa Pacifica, we noticed a brightly lit restaurant and decided to head in for dinner.

Baler's Beautiful Dicasalarin Cove

Look at that photo. Doesn't it look like the gateway to paradise?

Paradise. That was the first thing that I definitely thought when we set foot on Dicasalarin Cove. Want to read more about our experience? I'll tell you all about it after the jump. :)
