My honey wanted to go all-out chinese for his little party tonight with his tennis friends. So early morning, we trekked off to chinatown for food & ingredients..
I just LOVE chinatown. Don’t you??? <3
And if you know me by now, you know how I easily get sidetracked by anything cute or shiny! ;)) Saw these delightful little things from Wei Wei Cold Store so I just had to make a quick stop!!!
bola-bola assortment for shabu-shabu.. Hmmnnn.. Great idea for our sunday lunch next week! ;)
732 T. Alonzo St., Sta. Cruz, Manila 7334608, 7334619
We finally get to 1 of our MANY destinations for the day! @_@
Chinese mushrooms for the Patatim..
and kuapao.. to hold the patatim & mustasa together! ;))
Got distracted again by this green sticky thing with veggies & minced pork as filling. Had to taste.. Yummy! <3
Then on to Country’s chicken. We love it’s special spicy sauce!! <3
and the plump & juicy chicken!! <3
Then wai-ying for roasted duck & pork asado. I’m IN HEAVENNNNNN!!!!! ;))
Got those 2 for our sunday lunch with the mudras.. ;)
and this as pasalubong for my babyson who LOVES siomai!!! Do you know that this is President’s yummy siomai??? Only 300php/pack of 20.
Sidetracked YET AGAIN with this yummy machang…
Which, of course, I had to have right there & then! ;))
Watched this man peel sugar cane! ;)) Wanted to have some but I was afraid it might get my already high blood sugar, well, HIGH! @_@
and bought “ang pao” (money envelope) Christmas time is around the corner.. gotta be prepared for those unexpected munchkins!!! :P
And who can resist castanas??? All these accumulated load & only 4 items crossed from our list, hahaha!!! My honey, at this point, was already CRANKY with me! :P
My poor hunny breathed a sigh of relief when we finally made it to New Eastern for the fresh lumpia, hehe! :P
and whad’ya know!!! Another distraction!! Of course we have to try our luck, are you kidding??? It’s my hunny’s birthday!!! <3
But God says: No my dear, you are already TOO blessed! And He’s right! :))
Passed by Diao Eng Chay on our way back to the car… they have the YUMMIEST pastry snacks, I tell you!!! So how can I resist going in right??? ;)
Pianono and other yummy delicacies!! <3
and of course CHAMPOY for the mudras! ;)
And finally, armed with all our packages, WE ARE DONE!!! :) But oh so famished! So we had lunch at..
Maki-mi for everyone!!! m/
Many thanks to my Binondo girl who took care of me the whole time, making sure I don’t trip OR slip. Out of all my kids, she is the one who truly loves going to binondo, a girl after my own heart, hahaha! :P Ate is too sosi for binondo. My babyson naman is too tamad! :P So thank you, my lovey, for always shadowing me. I enjoyed spending the day with you!!! :-*
