In the days of lockdown because of this pandemic of Covid-19, I activated my Social Media Platforms that almost years I never touch, one of this is twitter. Suddenly, I received a message from this account which fortunately a band from Las Vegas. They sent me a sample of their masterpiece which is “Far Far Away”
I love their song, reminds me when I’m working overseas and miss all the sweet moments of my family and friends in Philippines. Everytime I’m going back home, there’s an excitement to see them and hug them. And their song is really fit to those people who really wants to spend quality time with their family but separated by miles and oceans away.
If you have a long travel or a road trip you can listen to their songs and it’s worth the drive. I know most of us will going back to our provinces because of this holiday season then try to play this.
“.. going far far away,
im going back home
to the hills and sky of blue
I’m coming to you..”
For more info regarding this band, here’s the link of their website.
When I travel in one place, I normally look for a museum that would tell me everything about the place or about the people or person.
I’ve been in Tagaytay for quite sometime and I just try to check this Museo Orlina. I am amaze on the artwork, the glass sculpture of Architect Ramon Orlina.
Glass sculpture is a creative but dangerous way to express oneself. You will need a protective gear and equipments because of the process with a certain degrees of heat to form that glass on what design you want. Some they do molds from clay. Most of the process in glass sculpture are Glass blowing, Hot Sculpting and Cold Working. The artist will do a variety of techniques to create a masterpiece.
How to go to Museum Orlina? If you come from Sta Rosa Exit going to Tagaytay Flower Market, It’s near Econo Hotel and a small street going down, you can see a Signage at the corner. But if you come from Olivarez, you can ride a jeepney going to People’s Park and tell the driver to drop you off at Museo Orlina.
There is an entrance fee for general admission it will cost P130 and for the PWD, Student and Senior Citizen will be P100. You can check the link below for more info/details.
This is not that typical pandesal with flavor, it’s somehow we can call as trending “quarantine food.” They deliver it hot but I re-heat it in an oven toaster (actually, i love a toasted pandesal) and matched it with a hot milk tea. It’s delicious, the yam jam or ube is not that sweet and when mixed with cheese, perfect for the salty sweet thing inside your mouth.
I am craving for Putobumbong then I saw this in foodpanda, booked and bought together with Bibingka Macapuno Flavor plus Turon. It's a common Filipino snack in this season. The delivery timing is earlier than expected and the food still hot.
I love their putobumbong because it's really the original recipe of glutinous rice, sticky but i'm looking for more butter/margarine. It might be good if they put some flavour like cheese in this one. As im a cheesy person 🙂
Their bibingka reminds me of the "pasalubong" of one of my housemates before when I was living in Singapore. It's not the typical bibingka that we can buy but it's the delicacy of those people in Northern Luzon or Ilocano. It is made of rice and not that so sweet, I like their toppings of macapuno but for sure the other flavor they serve is also good to try.
Their turon is not the typical turon, it's a fusion of nutty chocolate and the original ingredients of saba and langka. It's quite unique for me. I like the taste of it as I remember eating a chocnut with turon. I love to see another flavor for this with peanutbutter as we all know that banana and peanut butter is really one good match for breakfast or snack.
And they are environmental friendly too, i like their wooden "spork"
