30’s Restaurant and Café: French Toast

What comes into your mind when we say French toast?
Me, it is the same as the other people... they say French toast I say breakfast.

But in 30’s Restaurant and Café here in Cebu, French toast is served all day not just a breakfast meal but as a Yummy Dessert as well..

So far, 30’s Restaurant and Café French toast has the yummiest and most sought after French toast in Cebu.

30’s Restaurant and Café is actually just a very simple and cozy restaurant located in Banilad Cebu in front of Paradise Village.
They serve a wide variety of food from steak to pasta to Panini at a very affordable price.

Balut experience

One ohhh so boring night while tart and I were smoking outside the office. A Balut vendor passed by us and we decide to give it a try.

Balut is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg that is boiled and eaten in the shell.

Now I know that as much as possible we have to avoid eating this delicacy of ours since it is high on bad cholesterol Emphasis on the “BAD”

But hey the last time I was able to eat a Balut was 4-5 years ago since I saw my dad eat it and the duck was almost fully formed (Goosebumps). So this time, I let tart ate the duck part I just stick to the yummy yellow!

I forgot how tasty balut it actually is… Best eaten with salt and spicy vinegar!

After 48 years: The Sea of Monsters

Finally Finally!!!… I was able to secure the second book of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series which is THE SEA of Monsters.

It took me more than a month and 48 years... not to mention countless follow up visits to secure a single paperback copy. Since the movie adaptation of the first book the lightning thief hit the theaters, his books were sold out instantly. I guess they all got curious I can’t blame them. If you think the movie was great, you should read the book it’s way way better.

Thought Bubble:

I am pretty sure that I left my name and contact at Fully Booked Ayala cebu, but why is it I have to make a phone call just for me to know that the book is available. I didn’t receive single phone call or a simple text message from them informing me that the book is already available. Maybe they only have limited number of books available and a lot of customers wanting a copy.


Anyways, Michael Scott’s The Secret of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series is still not available here.
I have listed my name and contact number in the waiting list of all the major bookstores in cebu. Still no word…

Oh well.. Let me worry about that next weekend when I am done reading my new book.

My Epitome of True and Undying Love

Being human, emotions are a part of our everyday life. Anger, Sadness, Joy.  the most powerful of these emotions is LOVE. 

It is Love that launched a thousand ships in the Trojan War, it was love that killed romeo and Juliet, Love was the reason why jesus died for us. 

Correct me if I am wrong, but each one of us has a couple we admire and consider as an epitome of True and Undying Love.  a love that moves you and shakes you to the very core.. They share a kind love that made smile, cry  and gave you goosebumps at the same time. 

In my 25 years of existence, there is only one couple that I consider as that.
These are my parents…

They have been married for around 35 years and still growing strong, I see them everyday and more often than not they would have these pity fights over something as small as my dad not drinking his vitamins, but before the day is over they always find ways to Kiss and make up. Sometimes, I would hear them in the middle of the night talking about stuff sometimes laughing at corny jokes.

When my mom was sick and was in the hospital ICU, me and my siblings would take turns in watching both my parents. My Dad even said to us “I don’t think I can make it without your mom”.  My dad was so depress that time, he didn’t say it but we can feel it. When my mom was able to fully recover, I finally saw my dad smile.

My parents are for me, the epitome of True Love.
They thought me that love is patient and kind, that relationships are all about communication and compromise. And if you really love someone, you find ways to show it may it be in words or in action.
Time is too short to regret not being able to express how you feel. 

Now... Who do you consider as the epitome of True Love?

One Friday Night, we decided to give VIPS in Asia a try.

Tart and I usually ends the workweek and welcome the weekend with a bottle or two of our favorite light drink Tanduay ICE.  Yes! It is more of a ritual for us.

VIPS in Asia offers our favorite drink (Tanduay ice) in towers, which was a first for me. For only P250 you can enjoy the drink which is good for around 4 peeps. If you really want to get hammered, you can drink it by yourself.


One thing I like is that bar is located at the heart of Asia town IT park, which is safe (roving guard), clean and no traffic. The bar is located at skyrise 3 building.

Plus they are also renowned for their Potato Tornado, which is best eaten when it is still hot. A Great “Pulotan” suggestion J

Aside from that VIPS in Asia offers a wide variety of food including Ribs, steak, pastas and salads.

Right in the middle of the IT hub of Cebu, this is the perfect place for those customers, technical, sales representatives to just chill and unwind since they are open at 7am.

Bohol: R and R at Panglao

After a very tiring trip to and from DANAO for the E.A.T (Extreme/Eco/Educational Adventure Tour), we decided it’s high time for us to rest up for Easter Sundays R and R at Panglao beach.

From Sagbayan, it’s about 2 and a half hours  bus ride to the capital city of Bohol which is Tagbilaran City. Although it felt a little shorter since I slept almost on the entire trip.  Tart always gets amazed at the idea that I can sleep anywhere (literally) and regardless of the position (may it be sitting or leaning forward).  We were staying at his sisters place since they have a spare guess room (which I think personally is awesome) we were able to save some money for the accommodation and meals (THANK YOU so much for everything!)

Easter Sunday

On Easter Sunday, we woke up early and go to the market to prepare our food for the Panglao trip.
We went to the Alturas Super Market to buy Milk fish, pork meat, fruits etc. I was actually having a great time since I am very fond of markets, I really don’t know why maybe it has something to do with my father always tagging me along every time he goes to the market to buy fresh fish for dinner.

I was able to make my famous grilled bangus (Milk fish) ala AA style, since tart wanted his sister to actually try it.
Was a bit pressured but somehow I think they liked it! ;)


Panglao was JAMMED PACK with people! Tart and I literally walked at the shoreline to see if there are available cottages. We walked for a while and just when we were about to give up! We found an available cottage! (yey!)


Panglao for me is still one of the top beaches here in the Philippines. It’s powdery white sand and crystal clear beach is still the best!

If I were to choose between Cebu and Panglao for the beaches, It would be a NO BRAINER! I would say Panglao. Even though I have lived all my life at Cebu, it seems that panglao never fails to take my breath away!

Bohol: E.A.T DANAO adventure

Me, Tart and gwendee went on a holy week vacay to tart's hometown. Were we only have two itinerary, go to danao were you will find the highest ZIP line (I think) in the Philippines, the E.A.T. (Extreme/Eco/Educational Adventure Tour) and get some R and R at Panglao beach.

We experienced an adrenaline rush like never before.
The zip line is called a Suislide, it’s the highest zip line ever built so far in the Philippines.

here is the view i got on my Cellphone cam

The most convenient way there is to take a TUBIGON Boat in Pier 3 (around 150 – 190 one way), then you can take a Bus to sagbayan (P25). Then at sagbayan you can either ride another bus to DANAO proper then from there ride a habal habal to E.A.T. or ride a habal habal from sagbayan directly to E.A.T DANAO.

tart  and i  would recommend the Sagbayan to E.A.T Park, if you are on a time constraint since there are times that there are no buses.

Blogger's Note:  it’s a really bumpy ride hence the request earlier for them to fix the road, But the view is spectacular I think the best way to experience bohol is on an open air vehicle. If you have lived in the city all your life (like me) the fresh air and the green scenery is worth the sunburn. :)
