THE FAMOUS CHICHARON IN CEBU’S CARCAR CITY


A landmark in Carcar City, found at the rotunda

When it comes to traveling, my love for the charming oldies particularly the grand structures of historic churches has been one of my priorities. So during my latest trip to Cebu, I was adamant to include Carcar City in my itinerary.

DURIAN THE KING OF FRUITS


Davao City's Durian

Rich with custard-like texture and having a pleasing mildly sweet flavor encased in a powerful thick and thorny green-brown husk, shaped from round to oblong and can weigh from two to eight kilograms and possess a striking scent that many find to be devastatingly rancid. This is Durian, the King of Fruits.

EAT TO YOUR HEART'S CONTENT PREPARES A HEALTHY STRAWBERRY SALAD


You don't have to go out and splurge every last dime when you are celebrating special occasions like Mother's Day. Since my mom does not want to go out as often as I wanted her to - it seems she gets sleepless nights whenever she sees how much I paid for every dine out and gets dizzy with the maddening crowd at malls.


Whenever I am at home, I would whip up something healthy and delicious. Summer days, though the heat is unbearable, brings an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables that are very affordable.

EAT TO YOUR HEART'S CONTENT AT GRAND MOMMA'S KITCHEN



When I think of grandmothers, food comes to mind first. I would imagine grandmothers who would supervise their kitchen staff early in the morning to prepare sumptuous dishes for breakfast and even prepare a grand repertoire of gastronomic feasts during fiestas.

MOM'S DAY OUT WITH MANILA BAY DINNER CRUISE


Captivating sunset of Manila Bay

Whenever time permits, my mom and I would head to Roxas Boulevard to witness the glorious Manila Bay Sunset. We both marvel and are constantly dumbfounded amidst a magnificent sun that sets across the horizon. I never get tired of taking photos of the golden sun as every moment is never the same and it was truly one of life's simple pleasures!

MOM'S DAY OUT AT BARBARA'S RESTAURANT


For the past nine months, Eat To Your Heart's Content has posted only a few food articles - Haagen Dazs' Bids Farewell and Minnie's Sweet Creations were posted in August 2012. Bacolod City was my focus in October so I published articles about Piaya and Pendy's while my last post was in January 2013 featuring Marciano's Restaurant in Greenbelt 3. A grand total of five posts in nine months does not mean I have not been savoring various dining destinations.
