Cesky Krumlov beer

Never was a beer fan. But during our Eastern Europe trip, I made it a point to try the local brews as you really don’t get to have it anywhere else. So yes, in almost all our meals, we had beer.

This brew was in a restaurant in romantic Cesky Krumlov.

RC Cola

I thought RC Cola was only in the Philippines. There actually are in Czech Republic. Saw this in Cesky Krumlov.

Want any ideas for your child’s bento/lunch box?

You can also opt for an Under the Sea theme. The tanukis (the ones above the squid-shaped ones) of course is with the forest theme.

And nope I didn’t make these. Nor did I took these photos in an exhibit. These were on display in a supermarket. Of course we helped ourselves with the samplers (and bought some as well).

La Cocina de Tita Moning

I so hope we’d get to dine in and visit this mansion on one of our Manila trips!

hanabi and ramen

The yearly hanabi (fireworks display) sponsored by Kanagawa Shimbun which is held right in front of our office was held today. Wanting to avoid the crowd after the hanabi, hubs and I hurried home when the hanabi was just getting started. There was such a crowd that I didn’t hazard taking a photo anymore; I was only intent on protecting my pregnant belly against the rushers.

Two things I’m glad with with the throng of people: one, there are definitely more people this year than last year – people last year weren’t really particularly feeling festive after the big earthquake in Tohoku region. I’m happy that the people in general seem more buoyed now, more genki. Secondly, it always is really nice to see people dressed in the traditional summer clothes – the yukata. It’s not as elaborate and expensive looking as the kimono but still it’s nice to behold.

We were so hungry but we couldn’t eat in our office area because we wanted to be out of the crowd ASAP. But cooking would take time. Hence we decided to eat near our home. But the best restaurants in our area are the ramen houses. Hubs usually don’t prefer eating ramen but thankfully this evening, he urged we eat ramen. Yey!

Left one is Atsushi’s. It’s tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen that’s soy sauce flavoured whilst mine on the right is miso flavoured. I could taste the vinegar in Atsushi’s broth. It’s good but I’m happier with my flavour (albeit mine is more expensive and Atsushi’s has more pork slice).

Because we got guilty with all the fat content, we bought fruits in the fruit store just in front of the ramen house.
Plums and grapes for dessert.

Just balanced, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

La Maison’s baked onion

Baked onion! I’m DEFINITELY not an onion fan. Expect that onions would be one that’s left uneaten on my plate. But not this one. The inside is so soft and sooo sweet like a fruit. And no odour AT ALL.

It’s healthy to boot!
