Yabu-ness & Swensen's Day

It is not always that "I" gets to join us for breakfast or lunch or even just plain lakwatcha because of the tweenies. But today was an exception because it is Report Card Day.

I'm happy and proud to say that daughter's marks and general average are more than okay and she ranked 12th in class. Not bad, not bad. Hehe. Actually, I think its great since she studies on her own and I seldom check if she's doing her homework or not, not check if she's reviewing for quizzes/test or doing something else that she's not supposed to do. But she did well, and I'm a proud mummy!


So after getting our kids report cards from their respective teachers, J and I went to SM MOA to meet up with "I." And since we got there ahead of her, we enjoyed a bit (and another bit, and another bit) of shopping at Uniqlo. Chanced upon some skirts and shorts being sold at 70% off. WOW!

Lunch was at Yabu. We were supposed to dine at Tokyo Cafe but the waiting line was kinda longish and we were really famished. Luckily, we got a table as soon as we entered Yabu which was just above Tokyo Cafe.




I had the 90g Rosu Katsu, my default order here when I feel like dieting(?). Then I washed it down with tons of tea. As always, Yabu did not disappoint. The crew and manager was also friendly. Two thumbs up! :)

Afterwards, we went to Swensen's for dessert.





Because we were still full from our Yabu lunch, we just chose from the kiddie ice-cream creations.




"I" and I both ordered the princess while J got Mr. & Mrs. San. And yes, you can choose from the many different ice-cream flavors available. I had the green tea- yum!

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.
