Curing that Wanderlust Itch

As I have said in previous blog posts, one of the best things about living in the Philippines is it’s proximity to other nations in Southeast Asia.  This time I ventured over to Singapore saw some interesting things, ate delicious food, and met some wonderful people.  Here is the blow by blow.

It may be ugly but it is pretty delicious.

Ate at this spot for some breakfast noodles.

Breakfast of champions.

Too many feels.

Went up and down escalators at a scented mall.

Dropped by Blueprint and saw some interesting local brands.

This is Joshua, he’s an overall cool dude.

Overall, the trip was great but too short.  I’ll be back Singapore!

Lantaw

Spent this past weekend in Cebu with Ben Liberty and his lady love.  It was great getting to hang out and catch up even for just a little bit.  But before I left we went to this little floating restaurant in Cordoba called Lantaw.  The view of Cebu was great, the service was so so, and the food was fantastic.

P$, Kathy, Ben, and I literally waited almost an hour for the food to come.

But when the food did arrive it was good.  Worth the wait?  Maybe if it came 15 minutes sooner.

This “cooler” = Liquid sugar A.K.A. Diabetes in a glass

Spicy Scallops.

Lumpia!

I forgot what this grilled fish was called but it was mega tasty.

Pancit canton.

Overall the food was very good, but not amazing (I think my judgement is tainted by the long wait).  But as far as novelty goes, a floating restaurant with a view of Cebu city that has a jeep bar in it is pretty cool.
