Buffalo Wild Wings night in Makati

Standard

Today as we walked around Makati trying to figure out what to have for dinner…. we guess what we saw?

My favourite Buffalo Wild Wings.  So kids and I stopped and checked it out.

I guess Fillipino’s also love hot wings.

The place was so packed I was number 10 on the waiting list. You know I had to wait right…

Here are some pictures of our waiting time…

I love weekend food market

Standard

So one of my excitements on this travels is when I get to find out they have weekend food market every Saturday and sunday. Now that’s different from the night food markets.

So today the kids and I ventured out and went to find the sulcedo weekend market. It’s about 10min walk from our condo but ofcouse Google took me the longer route which got me walking in circles. But it’s all worth it.

Great food, play ground and lots of new things to try.

Some pictures below

What I enjoy most in our travels

Standard

Lots people I meet ask me 2 questions….

1. How do you all do this, Travelling with kids and education on the road…?

2. And what do you enjoy most on this travels?

Well the first one I will not go into it. But the second answer is what I want to share.

What I enjoy most about all our travels is when we first arrive and I go for that huge grocery shopping….lol!!!

Yes for my friends and love ones who knows me, I have an addiction for grocery shopping and cooking. And since with most of our travels I don’t get to have all the things I need to cook and explore my cooking skills….I have to now enjoy my next addiction of buying groceries.

Now while in capetown I loved shopping at the grocery stores.

In Nairobi I was so disappointed since they really had nothing in the grocery stores and if they had something I want, it’s way too expensive for my liking….so nairobi was not that exciting.

Then we hit Bangkok and the grocery store was huge, Large and just what I love to see….so many fruits and vegetables to choose and all you can think of.  Bangkok was awesome. My husband even enjoyed grocery shopping with me in bangkok at the farmers market….all the things you can taste while walking through the grocery store. So bangkok gets 2 thumbs up.

Now in phillippines am loving the SM supermarket. It’s a chefs dream grocery store. So many options from fresh seafoods and all you can think of under one roof.

Also I absolutely love night street food market that starts from 4pm till 3am and sometimes 6am.

Really am on a grocery shopping spree….

Some pictures of SM SUPERMARKET in phillippines.

Check out all the fresh fish…

Shrimps of all sizes….

Now this one was a shocker to me…they had about 15 different types of rice. And each one has some form of explanation and top favourite by most people….

Trip to the famous Floating Market

Standard

The floating market day was filled with excitement ahead. All ready to explore the famous market.

Well all I can say is it’s not what we all expected especially from the online pictures.

And what really ticked me off was the fee they charged for that boat ride. After taking the taxi there for the whole day which was $60 it’s a 2 hour journey out of bangkok. I can’t complain with that price. Having a taxi for the whole day for that price was absolutely worth it.

But once you arrive there they jack you up with a $90 fee for taking the bangkok handmade speed boat.

Now try to negotiate but I said oh well we are here let’s just do it and for all we know it’s going to be fun.

well it was ok but definitely not worth an all day taxi and a 2 hour drive and my $90….

And the prices was outrageous of the things they are selling. A bottle of water there is 20 baht and on the main land we pay

7 baht..now that is a rip off…

After our floating market trip we did the elephant farm..now I think the kids had a lot of fun on this farm touching live animals.

A stop at the coconut sugar farm was fun....how they make the coconut sugar.

A stop at the coconut sugar farm was fun….how they make the coconut sugar.
