Lunch at Eden's Solace, Indahag

>> Tuesday, March 31, 2015


Today we went to Eden's Solace in Indahag. A very nice break from our very busy routine now that we are catching up on paperwork and finalizing documents to submit for clearances. While our forms are lined up for verification, we set off to have lunch in one of the newly developed tourist sites in the city. It was already 12:40 when we left, and we were already hungry so we bought sticky rice to eat. That's Biko and Puto Maya.. just enough to keep us in good shape during the drive.. We were already seeing doubles before this, hehehehe.. 


The Halang2x was with us so we knew we still have food to eat when we arrive there, hehehe.. The first batch left before 12 noon and they were already eating when they called us to give directions.. They have forgotten about the Halang2x at the table at the office.. Good thing we were divided in batches in going there.. Thanks to Sir Luther and Maam May for the ride going there and back to school.. 


When we arrived, we saw that the place was heavenly... but we were hungry so we went ahead and had lunch at already 1:45 pm.. What's left of the Lechon.. hehehe


After eating, we explored the place.. Took pictures, laughed.. enjoyed our time while there.. 


This place is atop a mountain so you can see every part of the city from every direction.. We saw that there were still many amenities being built, and even the restaurant that shall serve food to the tourists is not yet in service at that time. That is why we were able to bring our own food.. By and by, their own resto will operate and people and go there and dine while enjoying the view and the fresh air.. 


See? That cottage to your left was where we had our lunch.. The one being built at the right is the kitchen.. The main cottage in the middle is supposedly the restaurant area.. 


What I love most in every cottage is that, lines from my favorite poems are posted in a corner or so.. The owner must be very poetic himself.. 


After a few hours there, we had to go back to school to finish our work.. It was good that we bonded together as a department.. 


On our way back, we had to go and take the long and winding road again...

Kids' Lesson on Food Preservation

>> Wednesday, March 4, 2015


The kids' assignment today is to bring 1/4 kilo pork or beef which is thinly sliced for them to participate in the hands-on lesson on food preservation. They are to make pork tocino and beef tapa. 


Their teacher taught them by showing to them how it is done, and each student had a chance to do it by themselves too. After mixing the meat to the marinade, a few minutes after, they cooked their preserved meat to taste. 


A small portion cooked in school left a bigger portion to take home. So we had pork tocino that Lili and River cooked for dinner. Hmm, I am sure they will stop thinking about blackstar series one now that they are lost in yumminess, hehehe..


And of course, their tocino was to die for.. Great start at such a tender age..

Scarcity of Water & Sugar Loading

>> Tuesday, March 3, 2015


Water wasn't delivered for days now. My co-teachers and I, have been buying water from the canteen. But today, out of the blue, everyone decided on buying this Four Seasons juice. And as the saying goes, if you can't beat them, join them, and I did too. Hahahaha.. 


It was too sweet. I can already imagine all the unnecessary sugars that the body will receive. I went to my classes, and after two hours, I came back to the office and more sugars.. hehehe


This box of JCO Doughnuts was given by Maam Nely's student teacher whose OJT ended today..

Mushroom Spaghetti

>> Sunday, March 1, 2015



My grandpa was born February 29, and his birthday, since its a leap year, gets to be celebrated on the 28th.. Well, most often if not the 29th.. 


Today, we have made this meatless Spaghetti because it is Lolo Peping's birthday. And since he has passed on for quite some time now, we simply remember him and pray for his eternal peace and happiness. Though I am pretty sure he has reincarnated to be someone close to me.. hehehe.. 


This is just 1/4 kilo Spaghetti, good enough for three persons for two meals. And that's just what it served us.. Lili enjoyed it as much as Sweet and I did.. 


I love the sauce.. So rich despite no cheese. Just mushrooms, vegemeat and spices. Healthier and more tasty..
