Food & Dining The GOppets

A-Won Korean Restaurant

So after our new year’s steak lunch in Tagaytay, Kap decided to spend the night in Anilao with the 2 older kids instead of driving the next day so they can have an early dive kinabukasan. Bagong taon na bagong taon, hindi ko type magdusa. So my Lovey & I opted to stay behind.

To know more about diving package rates, who to contact for diving lessons, and where to stay in Anilao Batangas, CLICK HERE.


Anilao is very rocky, which is why my Lovey & I just chose to stay behind. If you aren’t diving, there isn’t much to do except twiddle your thumb. You can’t go leisurely swimming -you’ll come out of the water with deep gashes & wounds if you do.



The astig (daw) diving crew. Hehe.



My beautiful mermaid who finds diving fun & therapeutic. Even though I always fear for their safety, I let them be. They deserve to have some fun. Bio is such a hard course.



Hello giblings. <3 Or 2/3’s of it at least.




The super friends all grown up. Do you still remember them?

The house wasn’t as empty without Kap & the giblings now that mom & her posse are around. So my little one & I weren’t so sad & feeling alone in their absence. CHAR! Of course Kap & I missed each there, hello!


Yun bang.. ang tatanda nyo na pero nag-uutuan pa rin kayo! #ligawligawdinpagmaytime Since 1986 – 30 years this year & still going strong. <3

To keep damp spirits at bay, I decided to take my Lovey out on a dinner date. Pagkakataon naming 2 mag-Korean! Kap & 2/3 of the giblings are not fond of Korean food, so swakto our mother-daughter bonding.

Diners were mostly Korean nationals, with a Korean manager to boot. So I knew immediately that we were in for some authentic Korean chow. \m/



Banchan party. Always a most welcome treat.



I had the sniffles from the cold Tagaytay weather so this brought so much comfort. Sundubu-Jjigae 300 php. Soft Tofu Stew.



To cook at the tabletop, you are required 2 orders of meats.

We chose the Anchangasal 950 php. Beef Thin Skirt.

and this Buldak Galbi 350 php. Spicy Chicken BBQ.



My constant companion. <3 Mommy’s not-so-little helper.

What’s with Korean restos & lack of desserts? Napakahirap bang gumawa ng dessert? @_@ Thank goodness for ASSI FRESH PLAZA, the korean grocery just a few steps away. Ayan, namakyaw tuloy kami. Baa-baa black sheep, 3 bags full!


Thank you Bae for always keeping me company. And for being so good at taking away the blues. I love you! <3
