Choco Chips Cookies, Vigan Longganisa, Soya Milk and Old Family Picture

Not necessarily in order but the title is related to one another nonetheless. The Vigan Longganisa is my own creation though I still have to perfect it because it gets crumbly when being cooked but it tastes great! The Soya Milk is daughter's pasalubong to her favorite (my Aunt!) ate L. The Choco Chips came from ate L's pantry. As for the Old Family Picture, she saw it in their old baul yesterday. She told me that she saw an old family picture of our clan taken around 1950's. I said that that must be the same picture that we saw hanging in the old ancestral house in the province though the family seem to have lost it. She said she'll give it to me. Yes, yes! The Aunts and Lola and Lelang (maybe.. Lelang was great-grandmother) wore traditional Filipino clothes while the Uncles, my Tatay and Lolo wore barong.. ooops! Except Tito O because he's wearing something different. So while daughter is munching cookies, ate L and I exchanged stories from long ago. It's really weird because I dreamt of ate L yesterday and in my dream, she is telling me that she is cleaning the other bedroom and that it is there. Of course I can't decipher my dream yesterday and it is only when I talked to her on the phone this evening and upon mentioning the old family picture that my dream suddenly became real. Oh!

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
