FOOD TRIP: Good Taste

Aside from Jacks Restaurant this is one of the great local cafe and restaurant in Baguio City. This Good Taste branch in Legarda compared to the first Good Taste - located near Dangwa Jeepney Terminal behind Baguio Center Mall - is much better - in location - easier access to taxicabs, with free 2-hour car parks, the comfort rooms are cleaner and since its like 4storey high (not sure) it has spacious dine area (I think the 2nd floor could be use for events like wedding receptions, meetings and company lunch out)!

Self service for utensils and purified water. You could always ask for a refill or for a pitcher if you're a group and some condiments are readily available on each table.Picture3 281

Did I mention it was spacious? Walk area is wide enough to avoid queues and food server traffic! :)
Simple chairs and tables, high ceilings give it a feel clean and the earth-toned textured columns gives a discreet vintage-y look, the lighting is so-so, and I'll give the greens a thumbs up!

Meals here are usually local and cheap, good for sharing and is unbelievably scrumptious! The vegetables are crisps. Fresh ingredients I guess is the not-so-secret secret behind their dishes that could leave your stomach happy and tastebuds satisfied! :)

Now on to what's to bring on the table! :)
It is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO hard to choose which viands to order,or which cake to eat, which drink to drink, gahhhh! The menu is so wide, I suggest to look on the menu beforehand if you're on a budget and/or on a diet for that matter too! Beware, the names of menu could betray you! Tahaha

Our table was long enough to accommodate 12 pax and we still have space for baby's things, carriers and stuff like that. We had a great time chatting away, the service crews were friendly and accommodating. I just wish they have table napkins and tissues available on the table together with the condiments, everything else is okay. :)

 If you can't decided which order to try, or if its your first time, you could ask for their best sellers like what we had, and they recommended to Garlic Buttered Chicken. Try the Pata Tim if you're not avoiding pork.
Enjoy Baguio! :D

Empties May 2013

One of my favorite blog posts from my everyday reads are Empties. So, after several contemplations, I decided to jump in too and make posts about my empties - not necessarily be posted every month but- it gives a sense of satisfaction knowing that you used up a product "to the last drop" :) and to avoid redundancy,  will just show the products that didn't make it yet to this category.
So here are our empties for the month of May 2013...
1) Off! Lotion for Adults - used this a lot during our holiday trips usually every night just to add extra protection against disease carrying mosquitoes and other insect creepers of the night!

2) Johnsons Baby Powder in Cooling Powder - every one of us loved using this after bath especially at night, to keep our body cool so sweat won't interrupt a good night sleep.  If you follow me here, then you'll realize it's one big bottle of Johnsons baby powder down! Hurray!

3) L'oreal Paris Smooth Intense Shampoo - loved the smell, the texture and the everyday instant result I get from this shampoo! Just pure love especially this summer season!
Provide rebellious hair with nutrition and protection for an intense smoothing.Smooth Intense combines Nutrileum with Silk Protein, known for its smoothness and thermo-resistance, to deliver intense nutrition and 48-hour protection.Hair is nourished and soothed from root to top, for an easy and consistent smoothness and is protected against the effect of humid or dry conditions*.
4)Nivea Visage Sparkling White - Whitening Cleansing Foam - I enjoyed this product very much but I still prefer and will go back to my first love - Garnier Brightening Oil Control Scrub, I just miss the visible grains.
  • Cleans into pores to remove dirt and oil.
  • Acne reduction Technology helps prevent acne.
  • Skin Nutrient Formula helps lighten dark spots and blemishes.
  • Minimizes appearance of pores.
  • Smoothes skin without dry feeling.
5) Imari Seduction Perfumed Skin Softener and 6) Imari Seduction Deodorant- this is my signature scent when I was pregnant and this just makes me nostalgic and I think babe also learn to know this smell... :)

7) Milea Bath Baby Cleaner - my savior! this is the first empty of my last Sesou haul for baby Jerson Clyde. Generally used it on his bum for easy squeezy clean after poop!

8)Venus and Mars Smooch Lip Butter Balm- one of my first product posts and now it's gone! I missed the minty fresh feel after applying this goodie balm but not sure, if I'll buy again because first, I'm not sure if they're still selling this line and second, I have lots of lip balm to consume first!
Aside from these, I have a lot of sachets of samples and gifts used and still in the process of consumption, but I decided not to put them here or else this post would take a gazillion years to end!
That's it for my first empties post! Yay for absolute zero waste (because we practice segregation and recycling in our home - save Mother Earth!)! :P

Yves Rocher Riche Creme

This serum has intense regenerating care system with 30 kinds of precious oils! Just the right product to splurge when it comes in fighting dry skin, slowing down skin ageing and avoiding premature wrinkles.

I love the instant smooth effect it gives my skin even while applying the littlest amount I could squeeze (because I don't want to be overwhelmed - I'm naturally oily) . And since my mom has dry skin, I think I'll share it with her.

Have you tried Yves Rocher Riche Creme?
