Surf Trip Post #6: Going Home
We stopped over at Gerona, Tarlac to eat lunch at Isdaan. Food was authentic Filipino cuisine, it was good except they took so long to serve the dishes. We had pinukpok na baka, kare-kareng gulay, inihaw na manok, and I forgot what else.. haha
I had time to goof around with that statue, hihi.
How to throw a party in the most unlikely place
Ever considered holding a party in a place like this? The organizers say, why not. Construction hasn’t started so we have the whole fifth floor basically laying in waste. So, again, why not.
Take some advice from our organizers. Here’s how they threw a party in that very unlikely place:
Rent some table and chairs, put some clean, decent cover on them.
Add some flowers for a pretty effect.
Get a great caterer!!!
(I was so full, I had trouble breathing. The cheesy dynamite was the bomb! Literally.)
Ask some guys willing to do some crazy production number wearing these colorful makeshift wigs.
(It got me giggling!)
Encourage someone to do an impromptu, and hence, an a cappella song number.
(Someone = me. It was a disaster.)
Buy gifts that people can use everyday at the office and raffle them off.
I had fun laughing with everyone, playing the games. I didn’t even notice how time flew. I must say, the organizers did a great job setting up the account party in the office. It’s not about the place, but most about the fun feeling you get anyway.
WAFFLE FOR DINNER
Had for dinner what one would usually eat for breakfast. I don’t like eating pancakes. Makes me gag. BUT I do love waffles. They’re basically made of the same ingredients, but food texture makes the world of difference. I love crunchy food!
Grabbed this waffle and maple chicken from Pancake House in Ortigas.
SANDWICH BAR AND DELI
Since I got a new camera, I’ve been meaning to take it on a roll. Last family dinner, I took pictures of details that caught my eye. That neon sign, the exposed brick wall, the pendant lamp, the lovely floor pattern. I love aesthetics more than I do food, so I forgot to take pictures of what we actually ordered. And yes, I’m making an excuse. I just simply forgot. ~forgive me?
Almon Marina is one of my family’s favorite gourmet place. I personally love their fruit and walnut salad, grilled chicken, and open-faced roast chicken sandwich.
