Just dropping by with a short post, eatsplorers, to announce who the winners of the Birthday Cake giveaway (cheesecake from Cakes by Yda and black forest cake from The Ganache) are. (Somebody’s eager to kick up her heels and mark two years of eatscapades and food quests in the City of Pines. *heeharhar)

You ‘can’ have your cake (because I’ll give it to you *hihi) and eat it, too, winners! =)) (Cheesecake for Ms. Wina and black forest cake for Ms. Miah. I’ll be sending you an email shortly so please check your inboxes.)

Big, big thank yous go out to everybody who participated in the giveaway! I really enjoyed the stories you guys shared about your most memorable dining experience in the City of Baguio. ^^, Do join in again for other promos on the blog.  (There will definitely be more of that … it’s the best way I can think of for showing my appreciation to you, dear readers. =D)

Here’s to another year of (nomnomnom-ing, etc.) adventures, not just for me, P3, X+1 and my foodie loved ones, but for all of us! (“,)

I’ll be back with a new eat-centric post in October, my foodie friends. (Sometime after the 6th. =b)  As Steve, the monkey from Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs went: “CELEBRATE!”, that’s just what I’m going to do now. \m/




Notable Edibles #1 – Chic-Boy’s Chicharon Bulaklak

Chic-Boy’s Chicharon Bulaklak

It’s almost 3:30 p.m. and it’s a good time for a snack. One of the possible choices is chicharon bulaklak/flower cracklings (Ohh, has a nice ring to it, no? Let me say that aloud to myself again, flower cracklings. Whoo-hoo. =b) and where do they have a scrumptious plate of these?  One of the places I could recommend is Chic-Boy.

Say flower cracklings! I’m amused. With ginisang kangkong sa bawang photo bomb.

They’ve got branches in Bokawkan Road, Bonifacio Street corner Dagohoy Street and Session Road … so you can see it’s pretty easy for you to come by chicharon when you start craving for it.  Chic-Boy’s is sold for P130 a plate. They also serve this with a zingy  bowl of vinegar. [It’s their own special mix, I believe and what a mix it is.  They sometimes give this out sparingly, (it’s different from the one in the bottles on the table) but you can always ask for a little more.]  What I especially like about these meat blossoms is that, they keep the shape of these intact (mostly *hihi).

Okay, appreciation time over, let’s start dipping and munching. (“,)

How We Go About the Food Blogs This Holiday Season…(“,)

I have mentioned before that Christmas is the Philippines’ biggest holidayLong before December (in October, specifically *hihi), the holiday spirit is already in the air (especially in the City of Pines when the temperature starts to drop).  Now, with just 10 days to Christmas, it’s gotten freakishly hectic.
