Whenever someone sees me eat for the first time, they usually say one of three things

1. "Kumakain ka pala ng kanin?!" (ask the waiters from Abe where good friends dine and where there is eat all you can rice. and my official abe partner-my sister Nicole)
2. "Ang lakas mo pala kumain!"
3. (at the end of the meal) "Kumakain ka pa rin? Tapos na kaming lahat"
This was first painfully evident the first time I ate in C Italian with my band Reasons. For I was still eating when they all gave up on Chef Chris' famous panizzas. It was the happy chef who pointed this out after spotting a very satisfied customer in his midst.

Yes, I eat a lot. And lately I finally joined the bandwagon of people who take pics of their food. ok, i am no @antondiaz but i really love to eat. and lately, i've had some pretty interesting finds for my tummmmy!


My band reasons and I went to Palawan for a concert with and for the priests (Padi y ang Pawalan Foundation). we had lotsa fun and ate lotsa food

1st STOP: INATO


me with piox, edwin and boj

i love the paintings in the restaurant

here are some more...the paintings by the CR were also lovely but i didn't get to take photos of em.

i love this waiter...i love our re-enactment very much. iPad=bilao


Kinabuch Bar and Restaurant in Palawan :



a plateful of "tamilok" worms from the mangroves of palawan


the deep fried version


i was so brave during the "tamilok challenge" coz i was in a group that was predominantly male.



After i ate the worm...i had to run to my seat to grab my bottled water. it felt like the worm got stuck in my throat! ewww! haha

Later that night or early in the morning even...I woke up at 4 AM looking for my water because in my sleep I must've been thinking that the worm found it's way back to my throat.

Trip #2: ILOCOS


I went to Ilocos for a mall show and I ate at Bird's Nest right by our hotel in the gas station compound...


puqui-puqui

crispy dinuguan with bihon. This is very very yummy. i tweeted about this and i got a lot of inquiries as to where to find it. i actually wanna go back there to have this. what would've been more perfect was if i had the puto manapla from bacolod that night...but that came after 3 trips =)


I felt kinda guilty for eating too much so i went biking with ate mel of polyeast records, my record label

  1. I admire you for trying out those tamilok worms; I'm not sure if I could've done that myself:p My parents are Ilocano but I'm kinda ashamed to say I haven't explored Ilocos yet...the puqui-puqui and crispy dinuguan with bihon both look interesting! Sarap talaga mag-food trip with friends and loved ones :)
