Still From Imay's



Because K decided to pay up the foods after checking out of the inn in Dumaguete, we decided to eat all our meals at Imay's. For dinner, I decided to eat Kare-Kare. Not my favorite food, but I wanted to taste it. Whenever I eat kare-kare, I don't really like it with the alamang (shrimp paste)... I prefer it just like that, lacking the salty taste. This one is a bit sweet, but still delicious.

I got home from Dumaguete last night, but I will be out for a few days again, I just found out that this weekend is the Panagbenga Festival and I wanted to watch that. I will take the bus to Baguio City midnight today and I will be back home on the morning of March 6th, but because I will be staying in La Union, for sure there will be an update every day - if I can.

Greetings from Dumaguete!

{This blog entry is posted in all my blogs}

Tito Tony - a Couples for Christ member and a co-worker of one of the Singles for Christ member from Qatar (a good friend of our SFC friend Marilou) checked us (Marilou, brother, and I) at a hotel in Obdulia's Business Center, just next to the St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral. Staying in Tanjay City - 31 kms. away from Dumaguete City - for two days was a great and relaxing experience, and we are looking forward to see a whole lot of Dumaguete City from this afternoon until tomorrow afternoon.

Brother and I walked from the hotel to go look for a laundry shop, but the shops we checked told us that we could get the clothes as early as tomorrow night... good thing, the owner of one of the shops arrived and was happy to get our clothes and wash it asap. Thank God for angels! Foods? I ate a whole, whole lot, especially while we were in Tanjay. It was feast every meal!

Anyway, this'll just be a quick post... just wanted to say that I am doing very fine and that I will be home before tomorrow ends. Will resume the blog posts starting Friday.

F = French Fries


French Fries

French Fries is the only food that came to my mind that starts with "F," and because I am not much of a French Fries eater, I will have to borrow something from my sister. This is what she ate when we went to El Pollo Loco in SM Mall of Asia. She loved it, but I had coleslaw so I couldn't say the same thing.

Lunch at Imay's


It was about past 9AM when K and I arrived in Dumaguete City. The ex boyfriend suggested we stay at Check Inn, so that's where we stayed. After catching a nap (the night before was the worst night of all), K and I went down to eat at Imay's, a restaurant located inside the inn.

The foods were very affordable, and here's what we had:


K had this shrimp dish. Not the "hottiest," but still good.

Chicken Inasal

"When in Rome...." because we're in Negros, I really need to eat Chicken Inasal. Yum yummy! This is only 45pesos, with rice.

Watermelon Shake

Watermelon is my favorite fruit shake, so when I saw this in the menu, I knew I have to taste it.


Guinumis. This was written on the desserts list, and the waiter said that it's a Negros dessert, so might as well taste it. It's like halo-halo, but I was so intrigued with the brownish color, but I regret not asking what it was.

On Monday (24 Feb), brother and I will go to Dumaguete. If we are to stay here again, I will definitely ask the waiter what's in it. =)

E = Empanada


Vigan Empanada

There are different kinds of empanada, but this kind is unique because it's from Vigan. I am not really sure what kind of dough they used, but inside, it's filled with grated young papaya and other veggies (some uses julienned cut cabbage) plus egg and Vigan sausage.

How to eat? Bite one end of the empanada then spoon some vinegar and pour it inside. Some
put it in a saucer and flood it with vinegar. Either way, it's just delicious.

Off to Cebu and Dumaguete!


{This post is visible in all my blogs}

I may not have time later tonight or tomorrow morning, so I will be posting this now. Tomorrow, brother and I (together with Marilou - an SFC friend from La Union) will be traveling to Cebu City to attend the International Conference of Singles for Christ. So far, things are in order… I just need to know which places we will check upon arrival and on Thursday.

Monday morning, brother and I will take the boat to Dumaguete City and will stay there until afternoon of the 26th.

My blog posts will have to take a pause (as I don’t own a laptop), but some blogs have scheduled posts and I will try to update as often as I can by getting into an Internet Cafe, so please do check back once in a while if there will be new posts.

Please pray for our safety. Thanks!

Tokyo Tokyo Bento

weekend snapshots

Tokyo Tokyo

Brother and I got off at SM City Fairview from Philcoa. It was already about 6PM, so we decided to eat out so mom won't have to cook for us anymore. Brother has been craving for some Tokyo Tokyo food, so that's where we ate. He was supposed to eat the Sumo Meal, but I don't know why for some reasons, he ordered the same food I ordered.

Whenever I am here, I always order the same food... the beef misono bento box. I found it really delicious, but today was a lot different because the beef was swimming in a pool of oil that brother and I need to tilt the bento box to separate the beef from the oil and soak a napkin to take out the oil. For sure, I won't be having the beef misono for a long time... I don't want to be disappointed again.

If there's something nice to say, it has got to be that the red iced tea was delicious today and that the miso soup had tofu. Before it was just broth, now at least it was improving.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
