Golden Bay Restaurant: Authentic Chinese Resto/ Mini Aquarium

Please check out an update below  (finally took better pics)
What's all the fuss about Golden Bay Restaurant? Travelling far would mean that the food is really good so I was excited to taste how good it was. The restaurant is situated along Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard in Pasay City and just near SM Mall of Asia.  

This Chinese restaurant was huge and reminded me of the resto called President that we used to go to in Binondo or most commonly known as Chinatown when we were just a kid.
The only difference is that Golden Bay glitters like gold while President is more of a classic and traditional resto. Another plus factor of Golden Bay is their mini aquarium which is not really on display only but you can get fresh catch from there and they cook it just the way you want it...poor underwater creatures...tsk tsk

I feel sorry for them but damn! i do love seafoods..LOL
This area of the restaurant is a big hit among the kids but make sure to accompany them because that area can get slippery.

Another thing that caught my eye is this nice display of poultry. You can see ducks, chicken, turkey? (i think im wrong with the last one...)
Now let's go with the food. We had dimsum galore because they had a 50% off promo on all dimsums. That's a great deal right?
We also ordered spicy tofu, an unusual dish with taro, noodles, fried rice, soup and more! No complains about the food cos its really authentic Chinese not like Chowking or any cheap Chinese restos.

Sorry for the pics because my new phone's cam sucks! my nokia's 1.3 mp is clearer than my 3mp phone. oh man!
Of course after a meal would be a nice cup of tea..not the sugary ones or cold ones...authentic herbal chinese tea!

Maybe this is one reason why most Chinese are skinny. I rarely see an obese Chinese unlike in the US. Maybe I should drink herbal tea more to digest the food faster and cleanse my body. Hmmm.

Had a great time at Golden Bay and food was superb! The people there don't also care if kids run around like it was a playground but all that running made me hungry again. LOL
If you are planning to have a wedding reception, family dinner or simply want to experience eating in China cos you dont have enough money to fly there...then make sure to check out Golden Bay restaurant

We returned to Golden Bay Restaurant last Mother's Day 2012 and was lucky to get reservations on the 2nd floor. The place looks grand and spacious unlike the ground level with huge chandeliers on top. The table setup was typical Chinese and being there reminded me of a wedding reception. 

And the highlight of the night is the authentic Chinese cuisine...starting with the appetizer which I think is chopped clams and leeks? (not sure about it) 
And followed by the fried noodles and chicken....

We ordered dimsums again and they all tasted great including the wrapped rice

And for with small sago (pearls) and the siopao-like sweet dough with mango surprise inside...which is a great way to end a meal!

Another thing I consider in a restaurant is the restroom and Golden Bay's ladies room is clean, spacious, has soap and toilet paper...perfect! 
It is rare for me not to complain in a restaurant and with all the dishes that we ordered, I got nothing bad to say about them because they are really good. Oh yeah, my kid enjoyed riding the elevator since there are 3 floors at the Golden Bay, running around since the restaurant is huge and talking to the fish at the aquarium. Kids, moms and even grandmas enjoyed dining at Golden Bay so Mother's Day was a real success!

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.

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. She uses authentic ingredients which could only be seen in specialty sections in groceries or Japanese stores. With my desire to eat Beef Sukiyaki, I have made some research and used ingredients that can be found in regular groceries. Here is my easy and no sweat Beef Sukiyaki recipe.
