Weekly Photo Challenge: Lunchtime


I love this week’s challenge! Since I pretty much take pictures of everything I eat, this week’s theme is a easy as 1-2-3. The pictures I’m sharing were taken yesterday. It was the office’s 31st anniversary so we were at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza for the celebration. Of course, events mean food! There were a lot of dishes to choose from but nothings beats these two classic Filipino favorites:

Lechon!!!

Ube (yam) and keso (chesse) ice cream for dessert.

For those who are not familiar with lechon, it is prepared by roasting a whole pig over charcoal. The pig is usually stuffed with several spices to give the meat some flavoring. One can find lechon in almost all corners of the Philippines but the best ones are definitely in Cebu. The crispy skin is a must cry especially when it is still hot.

On the other hand, the ube and keso (yam and cheese)  combination of ice cream is a favorite of Filipinos especially the kids. Branded ice cream are delicious but nothing will beat the experience of  buying dirty ice cream from a street vendor and eating  by the sidewalks under a hot scorching sun.

She booked herself a round trip and then asked us if we wanted to join her in Cebu. Of course we readily said yes! Php 1,200 for a roundtrip fare? Yeah baby. Yeah.

A memory worth relieving for.

Day 1

 After almost two months of waiting, September 24 finally came! Our flight for Cebu was at 6:30 PM so we were supposed to leave the office at 4:00 PM. I had to report for work at 7:01 AM so that I don’t have to commit an undertime! We arrived at the airport just on time and apart from the change in the departure gate and minor delay in the runway, our travel was very smooth.
