Salad With Bagwang

Bagwang is definitely one of my favorite discoveries in Soderno.  Here is another way I can enjoy these crispy thinly sliced bacon like liempo.  I  chop them up into bits and then add them to my salsa salad. Somehow by enjoying bagwang with the veggies it definitely still is delicious but less sinful   =)

Deep-Fried Mini Cookies

One day so I made pancakes for merienda.  I had made too much pancake batter so I decided to do an experiment. I had some old creamed filled cookies just sitting in the cupboard.  So I dipped the cookies into the batter then deep-fried them.  This experiment was a hit with the Little Ones, they did not pay any attention to the pancakes, instead they were popping the cookies in their mouths one after the other.   Will definitely be making this again soon.

Snow Globes Are Always Fun

Picture courtesy of my dear friend Picoy
After seeing Disney on Ice we headed over to SM Mall of Asia to see the giant snow globe.  I have to admit I too was quite excited because I have always been fascinated with snow globes.

The line to get in the globe was quite long, so I had the Little Ones roam and play around the area, while I waited in line.

Santa's couch, too bad we missed him 

Even with her eyes closed she still looks so precious

At this point the Little Boy was getting impatient and antsy so the Little Girl was trying to calm him down.  But once inside the snow globe, it was fun, fun, fun as evidenced by their wide grins in the  succeeding pictures. 

Afterwards the Little Boy saw the carousel and insisted that he ride it.  He has a fondness for this ride, whenever he sees a carousel he needs to get on it. 

He did not want to get off

Next time we go to MOA the giant Ferris wheel will be our destination.  The Little Ones keep on asking when that will be I told them soon.

Kimpura: I So Missed You

Let me start by apologizing for the quality of the pictures, I did not have my camera so I used my low tech cellphone to take pictures.  I was not really prepared that day since I was accompanying my Dad to a doctor's appointment.  It was a nice surprise that he wanted to treat us to lunch at an old family favorite.  Kimpura was our go to restaurant in Makati the whole family has missed them since they closed a couple of years ago.  So I was very thankful and super excited that Dad wanted to have lunch here. 

Love the interiors, we were the first customer for lunch, but soon after
the lunch crowd came

They still serve the free appetizer of sweet-chili dilis
with vegetables.  But the serving have become so small
but gladly still good 

I don't eat sushi nor any maki except for California. 

I always used to order ebi tempura in the old Kimpura,
was expecting them to be huge like before, was a little disappointed that they are smaller now
My parents ordered the bento set meals.  I should have followed my Dad' urging and ordered one of those.  They shared with me pieces of their katsu and it was really delicious and tender just like how I remember them.  Overall I guess my expectations were really too high for this Kimpura reunion, but I am willing to go back and I am sure next time I will enjoy the food more.
