CIBO Birthday Dinner

It was my sister's 40th birthday and we had dinner at CIBO in promenade, greenhills.
I used to eat there a lot years ago but in a different branch and still remember how good it tasted especially my favorite LINGUINE AL NERO..... 
and the best pica pica SPINACI ZOLA....
We started our meal with Patatine Fritte, Spinaci Zola and Crema di Zucca...
The spinaci wasn't as good as it was..it was a little dry....
The patatas was crunchy and has a weird tangy dip which I end up loving as I eat it....
The soup was really good and my kid loved it...
Here come's the main course...we ordered 3 pasta dishes.....
the Linguine La Foresta is fine, but I think it lacks more sauce the way I wanted it...
Not sure if this is the Farfalle alla Genovese but this is the pasta I enjoyed the most because of the pesto sauce... Maybe I'm tired of eating tomato sauce and white sauce based pastas.....




They also served different kinds of pizzas......














We had the Pizza Margherita, Prosciutto di Parma and I forgot the name of the other one that has anchovies on it which I think is the best. 

AND FOR DESSERT! I used my last voucher for Cheesecake etc. and gave my sister banana cream pie....
It looks delicious, but I never heard any compliment from anyone after they tasted it. Sorry, but I had tasted better ones...but it is worth since I got it for 50% off.
Before we got home....we dropped by at banapple because the husband of my sister got her the banoffee pie that she has been craving for...

Here is the website for CIBO for those who are in the mood for some Italian cuisine...
And get a sweet kick at Banapple http://www.banapplekitchen.com/Banapple.html
and Cheesecake etc....http://www.cheesecake-etc.com/

MY FOOD MOTTO: Dine at your own risk! We all have different tastes so maybe you would like some of those I don't or vice versa so just freely explore and give everything a try..if it sucks, then don't eat it again...unless of course..it is FREE! :)

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Ingredients:

3 tomatoes chopped into medium pieces
1 white onion chopped into small pieces
2 salted red eggs (itlog na maalat/pula) ch…

Easy Beef Sukiyaki Recipe

I love Japanese food and one of my fave meals is Sukiyaki. My mom spent a lot of time making that dish when we were little so I thought it was difficult to make.
