Review: Soban Restaurant

It was the city fiesta of Dumaguete and we found ourselves in front of Soban Korean Restaurant for dinner. We’ve been hearing that they serve good (Korean) food. And being the foodies that Yodawan and I are, we decided to give it a try.

When we got in the first thing I noticed was–KOREANS! I have no clue what ‘authentic’ Korean dishes are supposed to taste like coz I’ve never been to Korea. But seeing that there were Koreans eating (and enjoying their meal) is definitely a good sign.

We did not know what to order. Seriously. So we asked our waitress what to get–what the best sellers are and stuff like that.

She recommended Bulgogi Ddukbaegi (soup) and Jeyuk Bokeum.

Before the main dishes were served, we got the sides:

My apologies for the crappy pic (I’ve been using the S5 for a few months now and I still do not know how to use the camera–nyahahaha). The only side dish that I can name is the Kimchi. The cucumber one is really good too. The radish–I didn’t give it a try (the middle one) since I don’t like radish. Nothing to do with the restaurant. The one on the lower right is an eggplant side–it was also good. Forgot about the one on the upper left–I think it’s the equivalent to the Filipino atchara (yum!).

And then we got our main dishes. Korean hot tea was ‘supposed’ to be served but we didn’t get a pot. Anyway, it’s fine–just because I’m not really fond of teas (Korean, English, or whatchamacallit). Continue reading “Review: Soban Restaurant”

Forest Camp [Valencia, Negros Oriental] Philippines

I remember visiting this place when I was still in college. More or less 10 years ago. They just had 3 fresh-water swimming pools and a slide that would take you to the flowing river.

This pool didn’t change much over the years. Or the 2 pools beside it. But now, they made a slide just by the kiddie pool.

Don’t worry about the color of the water. They change it regularly and they clean the pools as well. I know so coz the last time we were here, we saw them clean it. Continue reading “Forest Camp [Valencia, Negros Oriental] Philippines”

Well, hello world!

It’s been like forever since I last wrote–well, maybe not. That was just an exaggeration (of epic proportions–another one). My last post was like the last week of August and it was such a short post as well. Boring life much? I would have to say NO. But I just didn’t feel like writing. But mind you, there were (and still are) a lot of things that I wanted (and want!) to write about. I couldn’t make time–I wouldn’t make time. There, I said it.

Where do I even start? Ah! Pictures!!!

I am not a bike enthusiast but I do appreciate bikes (and some other stuff). I saw these babies while walking along the Dumaguete City Boulevard on September 1st 2012. Of course, I had to take pictures!

More boulevard pictures (there are times that we call it “boulevard of broken dreams”)

The tree and the Paulinian sisters

There are acacia trees along the boulevard.

Just one of the acacia trees along the boulevard of broken dreams… If trees can talk… It would go *boom*pak*zzzz*

On other news… I found this iPhone App several weeks ago. I was reading a Time magazine article about ‘amazing’ Apps and this was one of those Apps. I like the iPad version just because it’s A LOT bigger. My eyesight is terrible. It is called Flipboad–yes, you FLIP through the ‘pages’.

iPhone Version. Got to have the Food Board.

September wasn’t a very nice month. I was sick for 2 weeks. 2 effin weeks… BUT! Got to love my chicken soup. *slurp*

See the fat?!?! Yummy!!!

*I don’t have any type of flow in mind for this post. If you get lost, sorry. I got lost too*

I love pens! Pens and notebooks! Got these pens when I went out a few weeks ago.

11 all in all. There’s 1 black pen that’s hidden underneath.

Okay, that’s all for now. Got work to do!
