OOTD: Provincial Bliss


For some reason, the new Herencia Cafe at the Rizal Park brings memories of Los Angeles. I don’t know, there’s also a bit of Burnham Park minus the fog to it:)

It was an extremely humid afternoon with Raine. The appetite was somewhat dead for something like pizza or pasta.

The current boho trend is forever proper in Ilocos. Thanks to Celine et al, my old Birks got so wearable again. Tis the season for ugly sandals. Call it the sophistication of freedom.

Resto Hop With The ‘Rents

Herencia Cafe

Mom and dad are in town from Los Angeles. To refresh their taste buds as well as their memory of local delights, brought them to Herencia Cafe in Paoay and La Moda Panciteria in downtown Laoag. There’s really no place like home, I always hear that from balikbakans anywhere.

Brandon’s fish kilawin and Alexa’s carbonara pasta. My dad got cooled with Filipino strawberry ice cream and my mom colorful halo-halo.

Bought Ilocos burger with longaniza and sunny side-up egg at the snow cone stand outside. Decidedly good without being fancy!

Bagbagis ken Lechon de Carajay

Look! Crispy bagbagis (fried pork intestines) and lechon de carajay at La Moda Pancteria. We went heavy with meatball soup, camaron rebosado, fried calamares and pancit guisado. Mom was pleased with the homestyle cooking. Happy they can still enjoy a little of everything.
