Boiling Seafood

Because it’s been raining cats & dogs for quite a while, we went crazy being holed in the safe & warm confines of the 4 corners of our bedroom. It was definitely time for us to come out from hibernation & face the world again.

Tuesday night, seeing the streets were once again somewhat safe from the floods & fallen trees, we braved the rains & went out for a breather.

We needed some comic relief to shoo away the gloom that typhoon Maring brought to the Philippines.

The 3 photos above & the 1 below do not belong to me. The photo above is reported to be the Pasig-Potrero Bridge in Porac SCTEX.

It was so depressing watching the sorry state of our nation that Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson’s comic relief in THE INTERNSHIP was most welcome. (Click HERE to read the gist of the story)

As is our usual custom, we had dinner before going home. We have already tried all the restos in ATC save for BOILING SEAFOOD which replaced the vietnamese restaurant X’oi. So humoring me & my need to blog about a new dining establishment, The Clan agreed to try out the new place. It was really mighty big of them. <3
BS has somewhat limited choices so we just got multiple orders of the basics below.
Seafood Chowder 125 php
Would have been nice if it came in a bread bowl & steaming hot.
Ceasar & Chicken Salad 260 php 
Buffalo Wings 275 php
Fish & Chips 295 php
Pesto Seafood Pasta 295 php
Shrimp in Sweet & Chili 595 php
In fairness, the sauce was good. But the serving was really very small for the price.

The kids couldn’t be persuaded though, and went to Chili’s instead. Can’t say I blame them. Chili’s really did look more upbeat & happy (and had more choices too!).

It’s been a long week of impromptu vacation, but how can you rejoice at the expense of people whose homes & livelihood have been devastated by typhoon Maring. I hope & pray that this will be the last typhoon of this magnitude to hit our country for this year. Kawawang Pilipinas, lubog na sa utang, lubog na sa kurakot, lubog pa sa baha! </3

Remember to keep these Hotlines handy.

PS: If someone knows how to 1.) enlarge photos 2.) put colors on the font and 3) upload photos simultaneously here in WordPress, I would greatly appreciate your help & assistance. :P I’m still writing on Blogger & importing to WordPress just so I can keep everything together in one platform huhu.

Like I said, it’s hard to teach old dogs new tricks! And I, my friends, am a VERY seasoned dog! :)
