Avengers Age of Ultron

My husband’s company had special screening of “Avengers Age of Ultron” at SM Aura last Friday. My son was so excited to watch the movie because he is a fan of Avengers.


But last Friday, I wasn’t feeling well blame it to abdominal pain so I was convincing my son that we will watch Avengers on Saturday.

Ethan: No, you said we will watch Friday not Saturday. 

It is really difficult if you promised to him because you have to fulfill it. #trustissue So my husband just gave our free tickets to his officemates and went home after his office. 

He picked up my son and they watched the movie without me, huhuhu! Good thing they were able to watch the 7PM movie at SM Sta Rosa, because next schedule is 8PM and 8:30PM. #buzzerbeater Nagtiyaga ang mag-ama sa front seats and popcorn na dinner maumpisahan lang ang Avengers. 

I was asking my son about the movie pero ayaw magkwento, lol. Ok fine, hintayin ko na lang sa TV. Hehehe!

Contis

It is not secret here that our family loves Contis, we always buy cakes and pastries and it is our go to restaurant in Nuvali. The restaurant started in 1997 in Paranaque but it was only in year 2007 when I first dined in their restaurant in Serendra. 

Serendra is so far from my place so I was glad when Contis opened another branch in Nuvali. Since then, we are frequent diner and buyer of Contis.


Last April 9, we tried their branch in Alabang Westgate. Every time we eat in Contis, my order is always Lengua Estofado P340. Minsan lang ko nagpalit ng order and Lengua Pastel pa pinalit ko. Hehehe! Sometimes I buy Frozen Lengua Estofado too. 


But I have tried other dishes because of my husband’s order. Nakikitikim lang ako. We know that Contis have big serving so we always order two meals only + extra rice for my son. 

My husband tried the Mom’s Garlic Longganisa P195. The taste was just ok for me, it as a bit dry. 


One thing I noticed in their branch is, they offer toys for toddlers so they will not get bored while waiting for the order. The service is good too, when we got off the car, nilapitan na kami ng guard para payungan on the way to the restaurant. 

As always, we’re satisfied with our meal and the only thing that change is the price. Way back 2007, la pa P200 ang Lengua Estofado. Hehehe!

Amazing Waterfalls in the Philippines

I do believe that Philippines has so many waterfalls but I just can’t find the exact number of it or maybe because some are still waiting to be discovered. As I mentioned, there are several waterfalls in the country but so far, I have just visited 6 waterfalls. 



One thing that I don’t like in visiting waterfalls is the trekking part. Most of the waterfalls that I wanted to visit is you have to trek several minutes just to get there. But of course, seeing the beauty of the waterfalls is worth the walk. 

Swimming in waterfalls is good especially during summer because you will really enjoy the cold water. Sharing to you the waterfalls that I’ve visited, I don’t have pictures of some waterfalls because I don’t have my own camera during that time. Hehehe! 

1.Daranak Falls - it is the first falls that I’ve visited. We had church excursion which our family joined. Some people say that Daranak Falls is where “Starzan” movie was filmed. It is popular tourist spot in Tanay, Rizal and it is one of the nearest waterfalls in the metro. 



2.Kawasan Falls - this falls is located in Badian, Cebu, the first falls that I’ve visited in Visayas. I spent one week in Cebu with my church friends. It was my first domestic travel via plane. Kawasan Falls is one the tourist spots that we visited and since it is far from the city, we had an overnight trip. 



3.Three Falls - when I was in third year college, I became a member of Haribon-UST now Earth-UST. One of the activities of the organization is clean-up drive in different places. Three falls is located in Sta Maria, Laguna and the first out of town activity that I joined in organization. 


That's my husband, this picture was published in newspaper too. Napabili tuloy ako ng newspaper. lol
4.Mt Pico de Loro Waterfalls - this is also one of the activities of our organization. We’re supposed to climb Mt. Pico de Loro but we were not able to push through because when we’re having lunch at the waterfalls, rain began to pour, biglang taas ang tubig at nagmadali kami makaalis. It better to be safe than sorry. But my ex boyfriend now husband was able to reach the summit during their trip. It is located in Maragondon, Cavite



5.Katibawasan Falls -  it is the first falls that I’ve visited in Mindanao. It is situated in Mambajao, Camiguin. It is 250 feet high and the tallest waterfalls that I’ve visited so far. Sa sobrang taas niya, putol ang kuha ko lagi. We did not swim here because we’re on our way to Cagayan de Oro.



6.Taytay Falls -  it is located in Majayjay, Laguna which is also known as Majayjay Falls or Imelda Falls. We did not stay long during our trip because the place was crowded and my son could’t take the cold water.


Care to share you waterfalls trip.
