Summer is here!

After the long cold spell a couple of months ago... we now have the sun peeking brightly at us all day. Too bright, actually. I know a glass of water is all that we need to cool us off... but it's so much more fun with ice cream!

And for that... I love almost every flavor! I like it in a glass, while I scoop out every little bit with my spoon.

Just like this.....

Selecta's Coffee Crumble

Just give me this, every now and then, and I'll be a good girl.

Promise :)

Heading North for Chinese

You know when someone suggests we eat chinese, we immediately sense this person is really hungry. Anyone in the Philippines knows that instant meal satisfaction would mean lots of rice, and some good ol Chinese food. In CdO, we would normally head to Mandarin Restaurant for some good Chinese food. Here in the metro, I believe its equivalent would be North Park. We go to North Park when we're craving their garlic squid, and some of that Yang Chow Fried Rice.

On this particular evening, our good friend Eric, treated us to dinner for a post birthday bash. With his sister in tow, all four of us were seeingly undecided on where to go. Mark, who had been apparently craving for Yang Chow Fried Rice, drove us to the nearest North Park in Pasig.

Now, at North Park, we usually order these:

Garlic Squid
Tender morsels of deep fried squid in garlic oil

Yang Chow Fried Rice
This is my husband's favorite.
I am not particulary fond of it, but when it's there I eat enough.
I like that it has lots of stuff in it, but I have tasted better somewhere else.

Next stop is the Crispy Noodles something.
I forgot the full name. It was my first time to try it, and I actually liked it.
It was nicely presented, and I think we'll try this again sometime. :)

Crispy Noodles
The waiter mixes the crispy noodles in the thick, hot sauce.

It has loads of mushrooms, and squid. I really think it's worth a try :)

Thanks Eric for the lovely meal!
