Nakow, nagutom tuloy ako. Paborito ko pa nam ung sisig. Ang nakakamiss talaga sa Pilipinas (that is after my own family) ay walang iba kundi ang "da food".

Nakakagutom naman itong post mo. Mukhang ang sasarap nilang lahat. No wonder you gained 10 pounds. :)

Nicholas said...

Luckily I'm looking at your photos just after eating, otherwise I'd be very hungry by now!

JO said...

Hello gals and guys,

And the best part about this is that I didn't have to pay for our dinner... our family and friends are the ones paying for it! Which makes it double yummier!

Heart of Rachel said...

Hi Jo. Wow, food galore! Ang sarap talaga kumain when you're on vacation.

I love paella and my favorite dish is Kare2. We love eating at Josephine's Tagaytay too.

My tummy is hungry but I'm trying to convince it that we've just had lunch. I think it's in denial. haha!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Whilst reading your post and looking at all the pictures, I could hear my stomach grumble! I miss Pinoy food!

Francesca said...

Those food are evils, grabeh, basta seafood, di baleng ako ay magkasala(sa diet ko) basta malamon ko yan, haha!

Hi Rach,
My family just loved to eat!

Hi Francesca,
Kinalimutan ko na din ang diet! Take advantage talaga pag dating sa seafood! Ang mahal kasi dito sa canada eh.
