Fatsopillar In His New Home

Daughter and I enjoyed staring at Fatsopillar and taking pictures of him (yes, we think its a boy). I guess he's been one of the most photographed caterpillar model. However, after finishing off the other leaf earlier, I decided to move him to a new calamansi plant, even if I know he will devour all of the leaves. I did try to place him in another leaf (ornamental plant) but he just smelled it and looked sad. I also gave him lagundi leaf, but still--- isnab nya! Oh wells, there goes my calamansi plants. Actually, the plant will still live, sans leaves for maybe a few weeks until new ones can grow. And I hope that by that time, Fatsopillar will have morphed into a beautiful butterfly.




That's Fatsopillar on the photo, munching a new leaf! Ang takaw nya...

And because of the eventually that Fatsopillar will turn into a butterfly someday soon, I asked daughter to read---- Hope For The Flowers by Trina Paulus. Its a very nice book. I remember my mother reading that book to me every night and then we would be talking about Stripe and Yellow.

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.
