Viva Pit Senyor

January 20, 2013
Intramuros, Manila


Because we've been craving for some crispy pata, and because we've already been to Greenhills the night before- hubby, daughter and I agreed to have merienda cena at Ristorante delle Mitre in Intramuros. Also, I've been itching to practice my photography skills which I think (and feel) have gotten rusty.


Daughter and I chanced upon an ati-atihan group practicing in the baluarte near father blanco's garden. And they're wearing colorful costumes. Upon closer inspection, most of them had Sto. Nino. Perfect! Sinulog Festival, Intramuros Edition ;)





It feels good to take photos (not food related) again. It brings back memories when hubby (my bf, then) and I were practicing our newfound photography tricks from Mang Dans, our photography guru. Studying photography in the early 90's was very costly and you can't even see your pictures until its been developed. We also learned how to develop film with a D-I-Y/portable darkroom! Cool, right?






This kid is one of the numerous Sto. Nino's. Or should I say Nina? Can you spot why? ;)


I'm glad that she gamely posed in front of the camera. Her shy smile turned out nicely, too! 




I love the smile on the kids faces. Innocent. Serene. Very Sto. Nino-like. I'm betting adults will have difficulty with these kind of smiles.





San Agustin Church.


 
Procession was supposed to start 7pm but got delayed. It's almost 8pm when the carozas left the church. Daughter and I joined the procession up to Victoria Street only. We were walking beside the last caroza (see photo below) and even had a friendly chat with the parish priest and was given a blessing before we parted from the procession.

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.


Max's Beef Salpicao and Adobo Ribs

Max's, one of the country's beloved restaurant doesn't just serve that "sarap" to the bones fried chicken but has a whole range of yummy Pinoy favorites on the menu such as kare-kare, sinigang na hipon, sizzling tofu, and others.
