Yummy Sunday: The Best Buttered Chicken

We went to Baguio last summer and I'm thankful na nasaraduhan kami ng Cafe by the Ruins or else I've missed the best buttered chicken in the country. We went to Solibao to have dinner. It's a small restaurant located at the ground floor of the Puso ng Baguio Building. We ordered quite a number of food on their menu, but their buttered chicken stood out. It was better than Bon Chon's.

The star of the night.
I 'll commute to Baguio every day just to have a bite of Solibao's buttered chicken. It was that good.

Disney Live! Milo and Pretzel's Rockin' Road Show Experience

I've been wishing to bring the kids to a Disney musical since last year. Two shows came and went and my wish remained, well, a wish. But today, it was granted. We scored discounted tickets from Ensogo. So, instead of a hefty P2,300, we only paid P1,380 per person with seats at the patron section. So today, my sister, Milo, Pretzel, and I trooped to Smart Araneta Center to watch Disney Live! Mickey's Rockin' Road Show.

Our discounted tickets courtesy of Ensogo.
The timing of the show was perfect. I have unconfirmed news from Milo's Inang Rose that he ranked second in his class together with his other two classmates. This was the perfect reward for him. He loves the Toy Story trilogy and watched the movies quite a number of times. As in higit na sa sampu. Ganun nya ka-love si Buzz. Pretzel was just salingpusa. Hindi sana namin sya isasama, but naawa si Yaddy nya kaya ni-libre nya ng tickets his favorite daughter. And, I'm truly glad that we tagged the our little princess along because she enjoyed the show more than her Kuya. Pero nung si Woody, Jesse, and Buzz na ang nag-perform, nawala na pagka-seryoso ni Milo. Ang laki na ng smile nya.

As early as 11:30 AM, we were at Araneta na. We had to claim our tickets first and we wanted good seats kaya we went early. It paid off naman. We were seated at Row C. Claiming the tickets from Ensogo was super easy. No lines pa at that time. Since we had time to spare, we brought the kids to Jollibee to have lunch and by 1 PM, we went back na and pumasok na kami since the kids were just too excited.

At exactly 2 PM, the show started. Trust the Americans to be always on time. The show lasted for about an hour and a half including the 15-minute intermission. Walang ganap sa intermission except yung mga nagtitinda ng food and souvenirs. They grabbed the opportunity to make a sale talaga. I'm glad na hindi bilmoko si Milo and Pretzel kundi namulubi ako. Hahaha.

I wouldn't go technical with the show. Hindi naman yun ang expertise ko. My sister and I enjoyed the show especially the performance of the front act after the intermission. We both agreed na it's our favorite part. Natuwa lang talaga kami, but I won't tell. No spoilers. The kids enjoyed it so much especially the Toy Story segment. Pretzel loved the Cinderella moment. Talagang smile na smile my own little princess. Feeling ko nai-imagine nya na siya si Cinderella.
Since I got nearly a hundred photos, let me just share yung Toy Story na part na lang.
Pre-show photo ops. Excited to get in. Ayaw na magpa-picture.
Sheriff Woody. Yeehaa!!!
Woody and Jesse
Galing mag-hula hoop ni Jesse.
Buzz Lightyear
Woody's Round-up Gang
"To infinity and beyond."
"Buzz, you've got wings! You glow in the dark! You talk! Your helmet does that, that... *whoosh* thing! You are a cool toy!"
"The claw is our master." - the Martians
I think the Toy Story characters got the loudest rounds of applause.
Post-show photo ops. Ayaw pa din magpa-picture kasi gusto na mag-Playland sa McDo.
This has been a happy day for us and this will definitely not be the last. To end this post, let me share with you the finale of the show. Enjoy!

Friday Five: Shower Caddy

My pink shower caddy. Want to see five random things in it?
 Five Random Things in my Shower Caddy:

Pantene Pro-V Nature Care Conditioner
A Bonne Spa Milk Salt. Don't use after shaving. Hahaha.
Facial washes that I use alternately.

Toothpastes for sensitive teeth and bleeding gums. Parodontax tastes yucky, but it's really effective.
Want to share what's in your caddy?

Yummy Sunday: Craving for Taclings

 Have you tried this? Taclings is the brand name of new food fad. It is also the name of the food they are offering. It is a dumpling served with taco fillings. Easy to eat. Word of advice from Mr. Pringles, though. "One pop and you can't stop."

Taco + Dumplings = Taclings
Every time we drop by Mezza Norte at UP-Ayala Technohub, I always get this in spite of the blockbuster line. I prefer the original variant. The green tacling is the healthy option. It's malunggay-based and instead of pork, they use tuna. You can have tuna din naman with the original version, but I'm such a carnivore. ;)

Taclings are my current favorite. I can eat them everyday.
