New Year's Eve Dinner

Originally I had planned on going somewhere else for New Year's Eve, maybe a trip to Paris or somewhere south, but when I calculated what it would cost me, I quickly dropped the calculator and decided to save my money. Hehehe. I planned on staying home, watching television, but it broke my sister's heart to think that her baby sister would stay at home for New Year's Eve having a mini-depression. Her and her husband were going to a soiree at a nearby village (Val de Bride) and I finally agreed to go with them.

Pate Lorrain

Every year, DO hosts a Christmas Day lunch for her mother and father-in-law, her uncle and aunt, and family friends. I am here to take to help, take photos, and of course taste the end product. Hehehehe. It's been weeks since she's known what she will make for the lunch, but lately she has decided to make something simple for dinner as well, in case the peeps want to stay the night and have an all-day food trip. Her something simple is Pate Lorrain.

Christmas Day Lunch 2011

Each family have their own set of traditions during special occasions. In my sister's family, Christmas Eve dinner is shuffled between her and her in-laws, but she always hosts a Christmas Day lunch for her husband's parents, their aunt and uncle, and a few family friends. This year was no exception for this tradition and we woke up super early to prepare for today's meal.

Merry Christmas!!!

Hello Friends! :) Just wanted to greet you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Wherever you are right now, I hope you are doing well and having a great time with your friends and family. Today is a special day and let's not forget the true meaning of Christmas for we are all blessed and lucky. Celebrating Christmas alone is not easy for me, but I take my strength from by family, friends, and my blog and knowing that my loved ones and I are healthy. Take care everyone and God bless! :)

Ecrevisses / Crayfish

On my birthday, I really wanted to eat seafood for dinner. This was my only request. Hehehe. I especially wanted some Ecrevisses or Crayfish as I've never had any in the Philippines. But seafood is quite limited in this region of France and that's why we ended up having limited seafood choices on my birthday dinner. But I have no complaints because I did get what I wanted which was seafood. But I was ecstatic when my Brother-in-Law got a call from a friend about their hunting schedule and told him that he had hundreds and hundreds of ecrevisses on-hand. Nice as he is, TH, my brother-in-law thought of me and asked how much he was selling his ecrevisses. Little did we know that his friend would drop by a couple of days later bringing with him two full trays already cooked as gifts! BIG THANKS! :)

The First Snow

The news had announced it: there would be snow within the week! And I was waiting excitedly! Do you know how long it's been since I last saw snow in real? About 17 years! And I've missed it! One of my best memories of my mom and I involved a snow fight. LOL. So I waited and waited. And finally, one morning, I looked out my window and saw white everywhere. SNOW! :)

Couscous Royale

My Brother-in-Law and Nephew like to go hunting in nearby woods and forests. but hunting in France is no joke. There is a specific season, which is winter (perfect for now) and only hunters with a special hunting permit are allowed to fire a gun. For example, if my husband (who has no hunting permit) was to join the hunt, he would be part of the trackers, which is the group that brings the hunting dogs and makes noise to encourage the wild animals to go out of their hiding place for the hunters to shoot them. It may sound cruel for some, but it is a legal activity when done properly and very enjoyable for many.

McDonald's at Nancy, France

At around lunchtime, we took a break from shopping and hunger sank in. But finding a good place to eat was a hard task and after several failed attempts, we could not find ourselves a decent restaurant / bistro to eat at. Waiting was not an option anymore as it was almost 2pm and our stomachs were barking loudly. We went inside the next best thing: McDonald's. We weren't planning to end up here, but we did. And even here, it was hard to find a table! It was fully packed! My niece, MO, and I had to wait a good 20 minutes for a table to be vacant, while my sister and brother-in-law were taking care of our orders.

A Day in Nancy, France

On the weekend after my birthday, we decided we would spend the day at Nancy, which is about 30 minutes from where we live, and do our Christmas gift shopping. The four of us (my sister, brother-in-law, niece, and I) left early in the morning and we were all ready to spend the day walking and shopping!

My Birthday Dinner 2011

For my birthday, there was only one thing I knew I wanted to eat: SEAFOOD! :) More than anything else I miss from Cebu, I think I've started to miss fish and seafood the most. And I was determined to go shopping to get me some. After all, it is my special day, right? :) 

Happy 26th Birthday to me!

Today is my special day and I am officially turning 26 years old. Young for some, but I, I feel old! LOL.

Lunch at Auberge Le Lindre

When my sister announced the other day that she was having lunch today with her sister-in-law and bringing me along, I immediately agreed to come. I'd be crazy to miss this opportunity, don't you think?! This was a girl's day-out. I wondered what the men would be doing especially for lunch, but I was told that they would be attending the same meeting and a meal would be prepared for them. You see, my sister's husband is a farmer who owns an enormous parcel of land for cereals and cows. My sister's sister-in-law's husband (phew!) lol) is a farmer as well. The lands and the animals are impressive to see, I tell you. But I was glad that we were taking the day off today to go out and have lunch at a restaurant.

Fondue de Fromage

The French are known to be big cheese eaters. Like bread, it is always present in the dining table whether it is a special meal or just a regular weekday. The Great General Charles de Gaulle once said, "How can you govern a country which has two hundred and forty-six varieties of cheese?" With that said it would be sad not to take advantage of that, right? Cheese is consumed in dozens of ways. With bread, by itself, in dishes, and in the case of tonight's dinner - in a Fondue.

Simple Pancakes

So last night my niece asked me if I could make some pancakes for breakfast today. I told her I would do it and there would be a plateful of pancakes as soon as she woke up in the morning. The twinkle in her eyes told me she was excited. You see, pancakes aren't common in France. You will easily find crepes and waffles for sale or at home, which is strange as the batter of the pancakes is approximately the same as the waffle and the crepe's batter. But anyways... Having made my share of pancakes in Cebu, I was glad to do this for them.

Celeriac Salad

My sister's mother-in-law has an amazing garden where she grows vegetables and fruits all year long. She definitely has green thumbs! And since she lives next door, she comes over once in a while to bring some of her wonders. She has brought us green salads, in which you can really tell the difference with the ones you buy in supermarkets. I find they are more flavorful and not as hard. This time she brought us a celeriac root.

Moules Frites

My brother-in-law, TH, owns a huge farm here in the region of Lorraine in France. In this farm, he is responsable for 300+ cows and cereals. It is a HUGE farm which is right outside of their home. It is so big that you don't even see half of it from eyepoint. The cows, I do have a glimpse of once in a while when he lets them out in the guarded park. Nowadays, it is the time when most of his cows give birth and he usually has 1-2 per day. He has calculated to have 140 cute little veals from now until the beginning of February. In turn, he takes care of the veals until they grow. And from time to time, he kills the cows and sells the meat to clients. Naturally, we eat a lot of meat here. In fact, since I've been here, they've already killed 3 cows and the freezer at home is full of meat parts to be cooked. We are very lucky to have good meat, but I do crave for fish and seafood from time to time.

Pizzeria Pippo, Morhange France

Out the whole day (shopping, what else! LOL), we were too lazy to cook dinner for the men back home. But then again, the men went hunting the whole day and we knew they were still full from their late lunch. Still, we decided to stop on the way home at a nearby village and bring home some pizzas for us.

Dinner at Le Paradisio, Metz France

Midweek, the woman in charge of translating my Filipino driver's license called me at home to tell me that the French translation was ready for pick up. According to the French law, this translation accompanied by my Filipino driver's license will allow me to drive in France for a duration of 1 year, while I process my papers to exchange my Filipino license to a French one. This is actually good news as I thought it would be harder than that to get a French driver's license. But to get the driver's license, that meant that I would have to go to Metz, which is about a 30 minute car ride from here. 

Thursday, December 1, 2011


On the first of this month, my sister, DO, and I headed to Luxembourg. A small country that borders France and is just merely an hour and a half from where we are living. And I am looking for work there.

Out for a walk...

Out here most of what you see are the greens and browns of the nature, the long fields of grass and the nearby forests. Today I took the dog with me and we went walking to a nearby village. Two reasons for this impromptu walk: I needed to get out and get fresh air on this sunny but cold day and drop some important papers to a friend nearby.

Chicken Pot Pie

I decided that tonight I would be in charge of dinner. I told my sister I would buy the ingredients and make them something I think everybody would like. I thought of maybe making something Filipino, but sadly they are picky eaters and I wasn't in the mood to be disappointed. So I decided on a Chicken Pot Pie, which is comfort food. And something creamy works every time, right? My sister was working the whole day and I made sure to prepare this in advance so we could catch a movie at 8:30PM. What I didn't know was that my nephew was bringing a friend over and there was a fire at a nearby village making them both late to come home. At 8:25PM, we were just in the process of clearing away the table. Tant pis (never mind), we told each other, we'll go watch the movie on Tuesday.

Soiree Beaujolais Nouveau 2011

So while Dad and MR were partying at the Beaujolais Nouveau party in Marco Polo Hotel Cebu, I was also getting ready for my own little soiree. This one wasn't held at a fancy hotel, but was equally enjoyable. And I got to help the day before for the set-up. I would have helped with the cooking process but I was feeling sick this morning and opted not to in order to rest and have enough strength for the big event tonight.

Beaujolais Nouveau Wine Selection

Just a quick stop to show you the wines we picked up for the Beaujolais Nouveau.

McDonald's in France + Twilight: Breaking Dawn

We had big plans for tonight: dinner at McDonald's + watch Twilight - Breaking Dawn afterwards. My niece and I were super excited for this night and we spent the last few days watching the first 3 Twilight movies. I'm not a big fan, but I've read all the books and I'm always curious how it will look like in the movies. Since we live in a small town with no movie house nearby, this meant we had to go to Metz, which is the next big city with a cinema - about 35 minutes from where we live.

Dinner Party Chez Sophie

Sophie is a close friend of my sister here in France. The first time I met her was when she came over to the house to talk to my sister the first week I got here. She knew that I was looking for a job so when I told her, she told me that her work place was looking to hire somebody and she suggested that I try it out. I had brought my resume / CV with me. But it was in English and she offered to help me and change some of the wordings. We spent the afternoon together in my sister's bureau. And as she left that night, she invited me to come along for a little dinner soirée she was having on a coming weekend.

Croque Monsieur

Dinner at my sister's house are usually very light. It's either a soup, a salad, cold cuts, or in tonight's case a sandwich. Croque Monsieur. We were joined by 2 more guys as my nephew was bringing a classmate and my brother-in-law's stagiaire / trainee was having dinner with us too. Luckily, we had enough ingredients for everybody.

Lunch House Invitation - French-Style

Early this week, my sister informed me that we won't need to prepare food for this Sunday because we were invited for lunch at her Mother-in-Law's house. They live 100 meters away from each other and I know her especially well because I used to spend time with her on the summers I was here as a little girl. Her Mother-in-Law is a very calm woman who I admire and look up to. She loves to cook, sew, and maintains her own little vegetable and fruit garden. She also used to have a small housing with hens and I used to go get fresh eggs with her early every morning. But those fresh eggs are just a memory now as she has let go of her hens because it was becoming too hard for her to maintain at her age.

Salade Vosgienne

I am getting used to my new lifestyle and eating habits.  Unlike in the Philippines; I don't eat white rice twice a day anymore. Sure, I miss it, but I'm also enjoying the new dishes I've been missing. I'm not sure what other French households do, but at my sister's house they try to eat meat or a heavy meal only once a day. Breakfast is usually a piece of bread and coffee, lunch is usually the heavy meal with meat and a siding, and the dinner is a soup or something else equally light. 

Friday, November 4, 2011

French Red Wine

There are many things that I've gotten used to do and not to do since I got here. I don't eat meals with a spoon (unless when it's soup). Bread is present at all meals. A piece of cheese after the main course. A light dinner unless invited or at a restaurant. And a glass of red wine during lunch.

Fish Fillet with Onions and Tomatoes

Today, I am home alone. Well, not exactly. The dog is here with me too. And my brother-in-law comes time to time to get something quick. But my nephew is working in another farm, my niece's vacation has ended and she started school this morning, and my sister is at work. I preoccupy myself by going room to room, opening the windows to let fresh air in the house and doing household chores. It is pretty quiet, although the dog can be a little be naughty and hard-headed at times. LOL.

Crepes Cake

My niece and I chatted early this morning, talking about anything and everything. She asked me questions about Cebu and the Philippines and I asked her stuff about herself too. We're still in the getting to know each other phase. At times we act more like friends than aunt-niece, but I guess that comes from the fact that we are just a few years apart in age. We casually branched into the topic of desserts, specifically crepes. She likes the weird combination of a crepe with salad and nutella. I told her I've never tried making one, but I've always wondered about the Crepes Cake. She asked to know more about it and it must have caught her interest because she wanted to make one right away.

Orange Juice + Grenadine Cocktail

I woke up extremely happy today because MR was able to upload pictures of SM and him trick or treating yesterday. They both look very good and I am happy they are able to adjust and have fun despite the separation. MR has to go to an internet cafe to go online because there is still no internet connection at home. I must say MR is very thoughtful of my feelings as he could have waited a little bit before uploading the photos but he wanted me to be up to date and let me know that our daughter won 2nd place in Best in Costume at her school's Halloween program. The theme was Superheroes vs. Villains and she was dressed as Harley Quinn from the Batman Comic. I must be a little biased, but she looked adorable! The next day, they went trick or treating at a nearby village which is known to have really cool and original house decorations. It looks like SM received a lot of candies this year and I hope she won't forget to brush her teeth regularly. I was later told by Dad that SM herself thought she had too many candies and divided them into 5 small bags to share with her cousins.

La Raclette

It's been a week that I've been here now and everything has been going quite well. I am staying for the meantime at my half-sister's house. You see, my dad was married to his first wife when he was in his twenties and had a daughter. His first wife and him divorced after a couple of years and then years later, he married my mother and had me. My sister is in her fifties now and we have a good 20+ plus years age difference, but we've always got quite along well together. Now, she has a teenage daughter and son and both are good kids. Her husband is a good man as well. The past week has been about reminiscing past memories, memories I didn't even remember! We got misty-eyed thinking about the years that have gone by, but nothing really changes - we're still family.

Pistachio Ice Cream

I finally got to talk to my 3 year old daughter this morning. It was the first time we had a lengthy talk since I left for France. Strangely, I haven't been missing them much since I got here. I guess that's because my days are filled with things to do to get ready so my husband and daughter can follow after the winter season. I talk to my husband regularly but usually SM is asleep during those times. I was hesitant when she asked to talk to me this morning. Maybe I haven't been crying or missing them all that much because I haven't had long contact. I am still waiting for that huge wave of tears and blues to come and I don't think I am ready for that. But we had a great talk. I showed her around the house I am staying at and she was fascinated with the new environment in my life. Honestly, I don't know where I get my strength from or maybe I am still in denial.

Paintball Memories

Every year my husband’s eldest sister (he has 3 sisters) comes home for her yearly one month vacation back in Cebu. Two years ago, she came back home to get married to her fiance before migrating to the United States. There are not usually a lot of new changes in Cebu every year and if there are we finish them on the first week. So there we were on our second week trying to find out what else we could do new. The prospects looked weak but I told my husband that there are things we definitely haven’t tried ; we just had to look around and ask.

Bonjour de France!

Bonjour! I am finally here in France after 2 days of travelling! The voyage was fun, albeit tiring and challenging. I am now here at my half sister's house in the East area of France and it is freezing cold. A far cry from the heat i used to experience back home in Cebu. The heater is my new best friend - good bye to airconditioning! LOL

The travel was super long and I have lots of little stories I can't wait to share with you. For now let me tell you the highlights. From Cebu, I took a 9 hour flight (Qatar Airways) to Doha, Qatar. My transit in Doha was also about 9 hours but because I have a sister-in-law and brother-in-law there I decided to go out of the airport. I applied and was given a visa upon arrival at the airport (good for 30 days). My brother and sister were already waiting for me and took me out around the city. I managed to sleep a little bit before going back to the airport early morning. I then took my 7 hour fight to Paris, France. In Paris, I took the free airport shuttle to the train station and took the TGV to Lorraine, where my sister and niece were waiting for me. I left Cebu on October 20, 2011 at 6pm and arrived at my final destination on October 21, 2011 at 9pm, but the total travel time took longer than that considering the jet lag.

It felt good to sleep on a bed the whole night through last night - (my sister-in-law let me sleep on her bed in Doha, but we only slept an hour or two). I haven't felt the jet-lag.

My sister is in the process of making a delicious pork roast, so excuse me while I go help her. I'll come back later for more stories of my voyage and the photos.

Qatar Airways: Doha, Qatar - Paris, France

So after barely 2 hours of sleep, my in-laws and I took a ride to Doha airport. Our stay together was indeed too short, but nevertheless I am glad I was able to go out of the airport and see them. I most probably won't be able to see them when they come to Cebu in January so I was happy for the opportunity to see them now. My flight leaving Doha was at 8:30AM and I was sitting down comfortably preparing myself for the rest of the trip - 7 hours.

A Night in Doha, Qatar

First off, let me apologize for the crappy photos. I left my camera in the Philippines with my husband. In the meantime, I am using my iPad to take photos and it takes really crappy photos, especially at night. Seeing that I am in Qatar for one night only, you are in a ride of crappy photos. LOL. Hopefully as soon as I am settled down in France, I can buy myself a nice camera. It's a shame though that I have crappy photos of my stay in Qatar as the place was gorgeous at night. That image I shall keep in my memory. 

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Qatar Airways: Cebu, Philippines - Doha, Qatar

I decided to fly to France via Qatar Airways for 3 reasons: it was the cheapest flight rates I could find, my sister and brother-in-law both work in Qatar and I was planning on seeing them if I could, and because they are a widely-known and reputable airline. Despite hearing a lot of good reviews, this was my first time flying with them so I was ready for anything.

Ichiriki Chaya, Cebu

When Dad said that I could pick any restaurant I wanted for my last night in Cebu (as long as the place accepts American Express), all I could think of was "Ichiriki Chaya". A few months ago, my friends and I were supposed to eat dinner there but as we were going to sit down comfortably, I was called to go home because of a family emergency. My friends ate dinner and raved about it - particularly this one dish - and I've been wanting to go back and try it myself.

Oyster Bay @ Bridges Town Square, Mandaue Cebu

So tonight did not exactly go as planned. But that's okay - as long as MR and I are together, we are bound to have a good time.  So the first part was a bust, but we went ahead with the second part and I was in for another surprise. A wonderfully delicious surprise to the eyes and stomach.

Surprise Dinner @ Kaona Grill, Cebu

I thought I was having dinner with my friend KR tonight. She sent me a text message the other day asking me if we could meet up at Kaona Grill (she manages it) and have dinner together before I leave Cebu. So imagine my surprise when I walked in the restaurant looking for KR and saw my 2 close friends (RY and LA), their husband/fiance (DI and WI), my husband (MR), and the kids (SM and EA). I realized that this was a set-up for a surprise goodbye dinner care of my husband. ☺

Coffee and Coffee Grinders

Recently, I’ve learned to appreciate coffee more. I do frequent coffee shops in Cebu, some known internationally others not. But what really makes a good coffee? This is what I’ve got to learn. And how does one become a coffee connoisseur?  And how do they enjoy their coffee? 

Saturday, October 15, 2011

Capriccio, Lahug Cebu

My friend RY's younger brother just graduated from College and she invited LA and I to the dinner celebration. The dinner took place at Capriccio, the Coffee Resto located in front of Marco Polo Hotel Cebu. I've never been there, so I was interested, but was even more looking forward to spending a little more time with my close friends.

Thursday, October 13, 2011

Zubuchon, Escario Cebu

My friend, LI, and I made plans to have lunch together today. I suggested we eat at Zubuchon since I've haven't been there since they opened their 2 branches and I was determined to visit before I left. Thankfully, LI was all for it.

Boiled Shrimps

One of my high school friends (DA) who lives in the States now likes to post photos of the delicious food she cooks at home. I can't help but comment on how good they look and sometimes ask how she makes it. And then one day, I received a personal message from her with her own original recipe for Boiled Shrimps. I always get a kilo of shrimps every time I go grocery shopping so it was only a matter of time before I try her masterpiece.

Dimsum Break's Beef Rice @ BTC, Cebu

The weather in Cebu has been ridiculous. It's sunny one minute and then the next it's raining really hard. Today - for example. When I brought SM to school, it was sunny and super hot and then when we had our lunch, it started raining really hard. So hard that we couldn't make it to the car and had to wait for a while. Thankfully, we weren't in a hurry as we were still busy having our lunch. The first part of lunch was a Ciabatta Sandwich from Yellow Cab and the second part of lunch was Dimsum Break's Beef Rice.

Yellow Cab's Early Breads - Ciabatta: Ham, Salami, Cheese, and Scrambled Egg @ BTC, Cebu

Because I'm leaving in a couple of days, I am taking great pleasure bringing and picking up SM to school every day. Since she started school, it's always been me, my husband, or the both of us who brought her to school. But these days, there's a deeper feeling. I don't know how it's going to feel breaking my routine of bringing and picking her from school, but I don't want to think about that. For now, I just want to think about the lunch we had today.

Tower Burger @ KFC, Parkmall Cebu

Don't judge me, but I ate way tooooo much tonight! I knew we would be full with the chicken, but I begged MR to get a Tower Burger too so I could feature it here. He reluctantly agreed as long as we shared the burger. This is the second time we've had this burger, but unfortunately I wasn't able to take photos before. We loved it and I've been itching to it feature here so I took this opportunity to do just that before I leave.

Delivery: KFC, Parkmall Cebu

Whenever a special holiday or event comes up, you are guaranteed that the fast food chains will pick up its theme to incorporate in their promos. So what happens at the end of October? Halloween!!! A celebration which was already quite enjoyable when I was growing up (thanks to the CIS Halloween Fair), but is growing to be quite popular. The only day of the year where you can wear whatever costume fancies you and ask for free sweets - why wouldn't this be popular, right? ☺

Sister's Best Cafeteria @ Perpetual Succour Hospital, Cebu

When October comes it means that it's time for me to have a mammogram done. My late mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at a very young age, so the moment I turned 18 years old, her oncologist (a family friend) recommended that I have an annual mammogram done. Like they say, early detection is the key. 

I'm leaving soon....

It's final. I bought my plane ticket. I am leaving on the 20th of this month. A lot of people have objected on this move, especially since I am going alone first, but I can do it. I CAN DO IT!!!                        

So the countdown beings.....10 days!!!

Buffet-Style: Mikado @ Mahogany Court, Cebu

When I came home and bragged about my cooking class and making Ebi and Ika Fry, MR and Dad decided they were in the mood for some Tempura.  I was still full from the food I had earlier at Ramen Kamekichi, but I told them I'd go with them. So where do we go to eat unlimited Ebi Tempura? Mikado, that's where! ☺

Cooking Class at Ramen Kamekichi, Cebu

About a month and a half ago, I stumbled on this Facebook page offering Japanese cooking class here in Cebu and a mutual friend asked me if I would be interested. I thought to myself, "what a neat idea", but I was still a little hesitant. And then I looked at the name of the establishment who was doing this, Ramen Kamekichi. Personally, I find that Ramen Kamekichi has the best Ramen in town. Because of that, I was sold and honestly quite excited!

Saturday, October 8, 2011

Yellow Cab Pizza, BTC Cebu

When LA and her fiance, WI, offered to buy us pizza for dinner tonight, we all agreed it was a good idea. LOL. I would NEVER pass on free food. hehehe. ☺ Although I am in BTC on a weekly basis, we rarely ever eat at Yellow Cab Pizza so it was a nice change. And it was a nice way to end the day which included cooking, eating, gossiping, making sales at the garage sale, bringing SM to school, waiting for her, having plain fun, and playing cards with friends. It honestly doesn't get much better than that for me. ☺

Ham and Cheese Sandwich

My close friend, RY, and her son spent the day and night in our house. Her son, EA, is my Godson and of same age as my daughter, SM. It is a joy to see the two of them playing together and running around the house. It is even better with RY here as we can have non-stop chatting moments. We tried to man the garage sale and sell our items, but ultimately we concluded my husband, MR, is the man! LOL So we usually just ended up talking or eating. LOL.

Garage Sale - Day 2 & 3

The garage sale has been doing quite good. I had no idea that so many people would find our stuff that interesting. Even things I put up for the sake of putting up got picked up right away. I've also invited two of my friends to sell their stuff too and it's been fun bonding with them. ☺
