Verdura Restaurant in Metz, France

Ten days ago, my colleague / friend, L,  and I decided to have lunch together. Can you believe that we’ve been working together for 5+ years now and this is the first time we’ve done this??? Unbelievable, I know right! We’re colleagues but it’s not what you think. I mean, we don’t share an office and we don’t really see each other than often for work. Maybe once or twice a month max. But I’m really glad we did this and that we had lunch at Verdura Restaurant! Not only did we enjoy good food, we also had a good productive girl time!

Throwback Thursday: Casa Verde at The Terraces Ayala Center in Cebu, Philippines

Hello guys!

It is most likely that the Husband, Baby Girl, and I will go to the Philippines this year. I say this with a lil hesitation, because we never know what might go wrong. I talk from experience. Anyways, if anything, we are sure that the Husband is going to go as it will be for his younger sister’s wedding and he can’t miss that. I am still not so sure for myself, although I wish I could with every fiber in my body.

Throwback Thursday: Golden Cowrie in Cebu, Philippines

 

I miss home. Home for me is Cebu, Philippines. I haven’t been back since 2011. Can you believe that? Some days I really really want to go back, but other days I just don’t know. Normally, we will go back in December this year. I can’t wait I can’t wait to be with my friends. I can’t wait to spend time on the beach. And I certainly can’t wait to eat in all my favorite places!

Chez des Amis in Metz, France

 

A couple of days ago, the Husband, Baby Girl, and I spent a morning at Baby Girl’s future middle school. It was a Portes Ouvertes event and it was the opportunity for us to check out her school. She is starting middle school next school year and we thought it was important to accompany her in discovering and exploring her new school. We are not the perfect parents, but we love our daughter very much and try our best. I can’t remember how I felt starting middle years ago, but I know that my parents support meant extremely a lot!

Buffalo Grill in Metz, France

 

I am still sick and stuck at home, so I figured I would spend some time with the blog. As I was going through my photos, I came across some pictures from last November. I started smiling when I saw the photos from Baby Girl’s and my dinner at Buffalo Grill in Metz, France last November 2018. I wondered why I had never thought of posting them online, so I thought I would do that this week. I’ve also added some old posts I had posted in my old food blog (click here and here).

Buffalo Grill in Semecourt, France (June 2015)

 

Last March, I experienced dining for the first time in Buffalo Grill in Semecourt, France and it will most probably be the last one. It was such a bad experience that I had totally forgotten about it until I was browsing through my pictures today. My first time ever trying a Buffalo Grill was 2 years ago (click here fore the post) in the ZAC d’Augny and looking back it wasn’t so bad. This time, in Semécourt, was plain horrible.

Buffalo Grill in ZAC d’Augny, France (September 2013)

 

There’s not a lot that I detest, but one thing for sure is I absolutely hate late lunches! I tend to get the worst headaches ever which usually last all day long and I also have a really bad stomach ache right after eating. It’s the worst combination ever! I try to avoid that as much as possible, but there was nothing I could do today. Baby Girl had her first swimming class today. It started at 11:30AM and lasted about 40 minutes. For the first session, the swimming instructor asked that I stay with Baby Girl to help her out with changing outfits and taking a shower. The Husband and I stayed the whole time and watched our little girl with a lot of pride. But then, I got a call from the hospital where Dad was. They asked if we could come pick up Dad as the doctor gave the green sign for him to come home. It was 2:00PM when the four of us were finally in the car. Our stomachs growled in unison, pleading us to get food!
