Oh My Gulay!

Veggies! So who among us get excited when we hear about veggies? Ugh~ Not me, honestly. I thought veggie dishes are bland and not delicious. But you know, our Baguio sojourn changed me in a lot of ways... and that includes converting me into a vegetable advocate. 

One of the travel blogs recommended Oh My Gulay as a place to eat. My family and I went out to look for it in Session Road. It turns out that it is not easily seen. Luckily, we asked one of the locals and she knew where it is. Yay! Oh My Gulay is located at the Penthouse of La Azotea Bldg along the stretch of Session Road. 

At the entrance, unique wooden sculptures greet the guests by the door.

Going up the stairs are more sculptures and creative graffiti. And inside the restaurant is like a different world! Plants and paintings.. and water... and bridges. This place is like art museum, too!

I can't believe we're in a restaurant. And true to the name, Oh My Gulay serves nothing but veggies. Oh~ They have creative names, too. Heehee~


The creativity of the artists are also reflected on the menu.

My family and I ordered three dishes which were the bestsellers according to the waitress. While waiting, we enjoyed the city night skyline. This penthouse is just the perfect place to be!

After some time, our dinner arrived. First up is Bandilang Pula. It's so called because of the red rice, I guess. The ingredients include veggies in season with tofu, egg omelette, and sesame seeds. Now this! Crispy veggies full of flavor you won't taste anywhere else in the metropolis.

Next is Pancit Gulay ni Pepe. This, too, is exquisite. The noodles are, you know... not the instant kind. You can taste it's freshness which goes well with the veggies. Ours had young corn and broccoli.

Third on the list is a version of the Italian pasta Puttanesca. Called "Anak ng Putanesca", it clearly stands out among the other creative names. Don't you agree? Hahaha~ This is my personal favorite. Have you ever eaten a dish where the tomatoes burst in your mouth while the cheese complements it? Yummy!

The dishes at Oh My Gulay are outstandingly delicious and unforgettable. Lots of farms are near Baguio, so that explains why you get the freshest of ingredients. I thought chefs on TV were not serious when they reiterate that the freshness should be of utmost importance. I believe them now. Experiencing the crispiness and the burst of flavor made me a firm believer that veggies can be delicious, too! 

Oh My Gulay is a nice place in Baguio to eat. And surely, you will get a taste of what the highlands' flavors are like. Not only that, you will get to see the talents of the artists there, too. Oh My Gulay is definitely both a feast for the eyes and for the stomach!

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
