(Chapter 2) Student Fare, Bakakeng: Manna Garden Cafe

I still maintain that kids these days are so lucky.  (Booming Bakakeng with impressive school facilities, man!) That being said, I wouldn’t exchange my experiences as a student to be a student today.  (Anybody can go back to school if they want, yes, but total replacement of memories, nah … shriveled hotdogs on cold rice in a baonan/lunch box with moist covers because the food was packed up when it was still hot *heehahaha Those were the days).  Let’s just go with: You’re lucky,I’m lucky, everyone’s lucky.

Pausing for the Holidays (“,)

Holiday fever/bliss has officially set in! ^^,

Much like it was last year … and every year, for that matter, it’s a really hectic season (That goes for you, for me, for many of us *shyeew). Not only is it almost panic time for gift shopping and preparing the menu for our holiday feasts, but also it’s time to get some last minute work done – gotta scrounge up a little bit more to end the year with a bang! (for the perfect feeling of accomplishment =b).

Which is why we’re going to put the Baguio eatsploration posts on hold till January 2, 2014. Before I leave you (… to your own devices? Nah, I know you can do it!), let me repost last year’s holiday message because for all that we’ve accomplished this year, it’s as true today as it was then.

How Things Changed in a Year …

Okay, a ton of things have changed in the city’s dining scene since I started this Baguio food blog *hihi, but I’ll just be featuring the most recent ones I noticed for this post. ^^, Ready for the ch-ch-ch-ch-changes?

1.) Forest Lodge

Used to be The Suites (the hotel/accommodation that stood in the shadow of The Manor and maybe one reason why it sounded so unreachable before was because it was exclusive to shareholders/tenants).  Oh yes, it’s fair game now. *heehaha  Le Twist (its inhouse resto), we’ll be having a food adventure in your dining area soon!  Weee!

Forest Lodge 19th Tee Baguio Back to the 80s anniversary party

A few of the goings on at the lodge’s anniversary party.
Theme: Back to the 80’s.
They called in the DJs from the old Spirits Discotheque to get the people pumping and grinding on the dance floor – which turns out to be the new 19th T(ee). (I used to have an ice cream scooping stint in the old 19th Tee, not really in the 80s =b but boy did that get me reminiscin’. Missing Myrtle and Biang now.) Cue Life Dance! Yeh!
Before the party officially started at 8:00 p.m., Forest Lodge served Le Chef made little munchies and cocktails (which Race and I missed the better and more scrumptious selections part of due to the weather, dang!) But Race, their highnesses, their friends (It was nice to meet you Kariza, Nikki and hubby. (“,)) and I got to top ourselves off with pulutan/finger foods once the party got hopping. *nomnomnom pulutan. =))
