Fambam at Arca's Yard Cafe Baguio

Fambam and I recently went to a trip in Baguio. Yeah, I know I should write about it travel-blog style but I'm more excited to share about the food trips we had rather than the entire itinerary. Hmmm... Maybe soon after. But first, lemme tell you about one of the best places to get good food in Baguio.

My cousin brought us to Arca's Yard Cafe. It was the first place that we visited in Baguio. It's a little difficult to get there though. It's on a bit of a slope and quite far from the main road. Taxis were not willing to go there but luckily, we found one. We paid about PhP250 for the ride. It took about 15-20 minutes to get there. The place is easy to spot. It looked like a warm house with the big signage saying "ARCA'S YARD".


Me at the entrance of ARCA's Yard
The cafe was quaint and works of art like paintings and sculptures surround the walls. The lush green view from the balcony was a sight to behold. And I thought to myself, this place smells like inspiration!

You can sit on the floor if you want :)

Oh! That's me enjoying the scenic view outside!
We fell in love with the place instantly and we couldn't help but take selfies. Luckily, we were the first customers to arrive that day and we had the whole place to ourselves for a while. Yep, we also had a hard time choosing a table.

Selfies all over the place! Hahaha~
We finally settled at a spot on the second floor. It was about lunch time so we ordered something heavy. Since it was my first time in Baguio, I asked for one of its specialties: Strawberry! (^_^) Here is my freshest Strawberry Smoothie ever~


It's so fresh it didn't taste like those artificial candy~ Yum! Strawberry Smoothie (PhP 90)
Next stop... of course, there has to be rice. We chose to have Crispy Lemon Orange Chicken and Longganisa. Not only is the presentation a win, but the taste, too! Wow~ 

There is a balance of sweetness and sourness in the sauce of the chicken. The sesame seeds added an appealing variety to the dish. The Longganisa was flavorful. The meat was true to the distinct flavor of longganisa. Finally, the rice was fragrant and soft. Yum!

There were three of us, right? So there has to be a third dish. My aunt likes pasta and she ordered Pesto Carbonara for us. That was a standout, too. I like this as each pasta strand was generously covered with pesto and smothered with Parmesan cheese.

So, are you drooling, yet? 

Our family lunch... Yummy!
The food excursion is never complete without desserts! Whee~ This is my favorite part! The bestseller of Arca's Yard... presenting the ARCA's Docto Pie a la Mode or better known as Camote Pie~





Of all the food we ordered, Camote Pie is my most unforgettable one... maybe because I have a sweet tooth. Hehehe~ But yeah... It is unique. The camote they used is the color orange variety. I'm not really into eating Camote but I'm really into this pie.

A closer look at the Camote Pie
There are no fibers in the mashed camote (the middle orange part). The next best part? It is topped with Vanilla ice cream and sprinkled with breadcrumbs and Pinipig! Truly a remarkable gastronomic experience!

I give this place 5 of 5 stars for the place, service, and most of all, the quality of food! If I ever go back to Baguio, this place will be my first stop on the list again.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur
