Get Your Christmas Spirit On, Dining at Cosy’s Café and Roasterie

Besides food, I also like to take photographs of sights and scenes.  (Again, these photographs help my memory *hihi  I’ve had so many senior moments =)))  One of the sights I never forget to take pictures of is the houses with overflowing Christmas spirit.  There are mainly two houses well known for this, the one in Naguilan Road and one in Brookside.  You can say that I’m the Christmas house stalker.  (“,)  As you might have guessed, these houses become picture worthy around the holidays.  Good thing then, this is the Philippines, the Christmas season starts as early as October.  \m/

Soledad’s: Where Memories of Good Home Cooked Food Come Back to Life

A common proverb in the Philippines goes; ‘Ang hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan, di makararatíng sa paroroonan’.  (Literal translation: He, who doesn’t know how to look back on where he came from, will never reach his destiny.)  This can also apply to food when we take a look at the options we have for getting good food today.  Our society has developed so much in the food industry, that even the biggest brands for food in other countries, e.g., McDonald’s and Starbucks have found their way here.  Some had a little difficulty breaking into the Baguio market and some even failed (Wendy’s and Kenny Roger’s Roasters) but with the arrival of these restaurants, the number of places to eat at in the city had risen exponentially.
