Last year I was introduced to a black rock named tektites. Well, honestly I don't have any interest on rocks but somehow found tektite quite interesting - maybe the fact that it came from asteroid amazes me, or was it the fact that it's expensive piece of black rock... haha!

Got it from Aubrey Whymark's tektite site -the biggest tektite fan/collector

Tektites are natural glass objects primarily composed of silica. Tektites found on Earth are formed by large asteroidal or cometary impact with the Earth. Energy from the impact melts terrestrial rock and ejects it into the upper reaches of the atmosphere. A few minutes later tektites rain down. The final morphologies are largely dependent on the distance from the source crater and the degree of terrestrial weathering/etching - source

He buys/collects tektites and might sell(right Tere?) some if/when interested.

Anvaya Cove, Morong Bataan - Safeway Manila

A week before holy week, Safeway Manila celebrated employee's appreciation month and it's 6th year anniversary in Anvaya Cove in Morong Bataan.

Anvaya is an exclusive resort and residential complex owned by Ayala group of companies. Visually beautiful scenery- beige colored fine sand, clear beach water(with jelly, amazingly structured pools with jacuzzi, nicely landscaped garden and modern interiors.

The day was filled with fun activities in the sun- swimming, recreation, SPA, food...

So far, compared to previous years, This was the best outing venue for Safeway Manila... it was kinda far though ( 3-4 hours drive from Manila) especially on a Monday.

That's All!

Bagoong club resto

Bagoong (Shrimp paste) is a common condiment in the Philippines; taste varies depends on how it's cook but is usually salty - it can be addictive, however the smell can be extremely repulsive. It is a well known ingredients in Filipino cuisine- Kare-kare... pinakbet... Mannga't bagoong... Pork binagoongan...

Anyway we recently dined in a place named bagoong club, it is one hidden restaurant somwhere in Tomas Morato. The menu has a lot of "with" bagoong dishes but generally the place offers Filipino flares.
The ambiance is very Filipino - located inside a big Filipino inspired house with wooden chairs and table, capiz window and Filipiniana paintings off the walls. Paper place mat with few trivias about bagoong...
Freebies: Singkamas (turnip) with Bagoong - munch it while waiting for your order.

Kilawing Tuna at inihaw na liempo sa atswete. P220

Bicol Express na Kamto- P240. Beef meat in cocout milk- tasty and spicy.

Bagoong club sisig -P190. - I found it a sweet but our youngest sister seemed to favorite this:

We actually ordered a lot of good food but were hungry hungry....Forgot to take those pictures... sorry!

Anywoo... The dishes that we ordered were delicious and "hello"! Balikbayan will surely love this place ;-)

That's All!

Le Ching Tea House

Le ching Tea house has been around for ages, it offers quick, affordable and satisfying Chinese food. There are several branches here in Manila, but I usually stop by at their Greenhills branch - The place is just small, ambiance is simple and unassuming; service is fast and most importantly food is yummy.

Pork spareribs rice rule in this place. Juicy pork spareribs cooked in light tausi sauce on top of white rice served hot in stainless bowl, squeeze in a little lime plus the hot chili garlic oil = perfect filling delicious meal. They also offer other variety such as beef brisket rice , asado rice etc. for only P100-P120.

Dimsums such as siomai , hakao , shark fin, chicken feet are also availble here, cost around P70.
Since shirmp rice roll is out of stock that time, we opt for asado rice roll, it's ok but I like shirmp rice roll better...

Can't wait for my next green hills shopping spree plus le ching le ching!
