SAVORING LATITUDE

Don't you just love to eat?  


One of our favorite catch up thingabies is eating.  We always make sure that once in while, we have uninterrupted bonding where we can just eat a lot (yep, a lot), talk and have good coffee for a couple of hours.  Thanks to Metrodeal, we were able to eat at Hotel Jen (formerly Traders Hotel) on a discounted price. We paid 560php each and get to savor good food on a Saturday.

The menu list was short but sophisticated.  I was surprised I got to memorize what the spread was without intending to.  On the buffet was the following:

  • Bread, butter, jam
  • Cheese (about 5 types), fruits and crackers
  • Salad
  • Bulalo Soup
  • Creamy Vegetable Soup
  • Siomai
  • Kikiam
  • Potato Wedges
  • Sushi
  • Ribs
  • Hilabos na Hipon
  • Lechon Macau
  • Spicy Wings
  • Chopsuey
  • Kare-Kare
  • Steamed Fish in Lemon Sauce
  • Strawberry Mousse
  • Sansrival
  • Churros
  • Ginataang Halo-halo
  • Pudding




When we walked in and checked the tables, I was not really excited to dig in.  It looked "ordinary", plus compared to other buffet restaurants the selections of Latitude was fewer.  However, when we started tasting each viand, we became really appreciative of what Latitude has to offer.  It was authentic, savory, real, delicious - definitely a lot "oooohhhsss and aaaaahhhhsss" from us.  








The ambiance was relaxing too.  It was not crowded, definitely no lines, no people walking around, and just really a good place to have an intimate conversation.  The waiters were a delight as well. They got our empty plates right away and checked on how we are enjoying our meals.

no people means a decent picture! haha

On the other had, the vegetarians will be a bit disappointed because aside from the green salad, Hotel Jen only offered Chopsuey, Sushi, Shrimp and Steamed fish on their list.

All in all, because of the quality of taste and ambiance, I will choose (with our without Metrodeal discount) Latitude over Buffet 101, Vikings and Yakimix.  I wish to go back here, not the soonest though, because the ribs and spicy wings were just too sinful to try again!








ROLLER COASTER APRIL: From Family Celebrations to Unending Buffet Meals to Receiving Bry's Bar Exam Grades!!

I have not had the time to write for the month of April.  I was so busy eating!!!







Tita Noemi, Mommy's sister from the US surprised the Bagasin clan as she crashed Tito Abe's retirement and birthday party.






 The feasting did not end here!  This was just the beginning of the endless meet-ups, dinner, lunch. brunch, etc with the Bagasin family members.  As I am homebased (meaning I can work while watching Risen enjoy Tito Sammy's pool) and Bryan had a pretty much flexi schedule, we were able to spend time not only with Tita Noemi but also with Mommy who filed for a two week leave.



We did not think twice of making the effort to drive,  bring Risen and stay for the night (or nightssss) to be with family.  I think, this is one of the wise decisions to always do - BE WITH FAMILY.  This is not only healthy for a restless feet like me but also for Risen.  I am glad he was able to play, run around and get to know his cousins.  Though he does not fully remember them by name, it is good to see that when Risen sees them, he recognizes them already! He instantly hugs and plays with them.







The Bagasins are not really from my side of family (Bryan's Mom is a Bagasin) so I basically have two choices, to treat them family or to let them be "Bry's family".  With these, I choose number 1 - I want make a conscious effort to see and love them as family.  I am grateful because this is not hard to do.  They have always been warm, friendly and really nice.  I may not know each one of them but I am more that glad because I am comfortable to be with them -- to call them family.  Such a wonderful feeling!


Oh yes, this month, Bryan also got his Bar Exam Grades.  His grade was 72.45.  The passing was 73. Soooo close!! haha So he is like my Atty. na kinulang ng 0.5! hahaha

Thailand day 7 - last day in Phuket


Last day = breakfast buffet day!

I have been reading a lot of raves online about the Renaissance breakfast buffet, and since we can’t afford this everyday (health and money factor), we saved the best for last.

I won’t spend much writing but will let the pictures and our big smiles (and tummies), speak for itself!  ENJOY!!
gutom!!
