Pastry Chef

An intimate dinner was held for our family to celebrate Inigo’s birthday.

Pastry Chef seemed to be the most requested resto, so we held the celebration here. This resto offers an eat-all-you-can buffet dining, with international dishes, and of course, Pinoy cuisine.

Antipolo Church

The Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage Shrine, also known as the Antipolo church is an iconic place of worship down south of Manila. Many worshipers come here, especially those who plan to travel or work abroad, to pray for safety while away from their families.

This church is even more dear to our family, as we come here for our Sunday Masses many years back, when we still own a house in a nearby subdivision – Woodrow Hills. That property has long been sold, after Didith and I moved to the UAE to work.

The visit here brings back lots of memories. They have made lots of improvements around the area.

Lunch with the Pantanillas

Every vacation, the Pantanilla family makes sure that they get a lunch date from us. It is usually their treat, and they try to bring us to really nice restos around.

This time, we went to Jeca’s, which is a very Pinoy resto located just in front of the new Malolos Municipal Building. The food was in modest servings and the taste was perfect, especially if you long for Pinoy cuisines.

After this, we were also treated to some Starbucks frap, for I guess, dessert 😀

Thank you, Pantanillas!

Visited our high school teacher and wedding ninang Mam Estrellita Dayao. Got her some presents from UAE. Didith and I share the same high school teachers because we went to the same high school. Wifey, by the way, is our Class Valedictorian.

Touch down!

Yes, we are finally here!

Planning to eat at Pastry Chef, for an eat-all-you-can treat, but we decided to just grab a decent meal from a nearer resto.
