.Eating is one thing the family loves to do together.
Nothing like Tayamen’s isaw!
The only pizza that we mutually love — Saramsam’s longaniza pizza!
Rufino’s for desserts. Life is sweeter when shared with people you love.

The 4th of August is habitually random. Soon after digesting the sharpness of The Wolverine, the family headed to Tayamen’s. Reny can live on exotic stuff like unskinned croakers from Piddig *trembles* and horse tapa he shares with his mates, and so if benign Tayamen’s isaw is foreign to him, he’s still a rookie foodie.
After my birthday this year, in a manner of speaking, he’s had it all in Ilocos.
Happy birthday to me!

I’m a follower of The Sartolialist for current and chic street fashion photography. Scott’s photo book is available at National Bookstore, now open at the Ilocano Heroes Hall turned mall. Waiting for Scott’s latest, Closer.
On one of the pages of the book… I admire US Elle style director Kate Lanphear’s fearless style.
Walked to nearby Red Dot…
Got my aqua vegan Jelly Nellies at the store. Been eying these classic Onitsuka Tigers and the fierce flats below, teehee, ballet bayonets!
a page from my old mag.
Marianne got cute outfits for my goddaughter Marylaine. Chose the Hello Kitty Vans for the cute little girl.
Oh, our first stop was actually Hap Chan. Joy bought us a dim sum lunch consisting of hakaw (shrimp dumplings, ham siok (fried meat-stuffed dumplings), seafood noodles, asado pork and sweet carrot and squash, kinda like sticky rice cakes. A jolting earthquake was felt while we were dining. It frightened us especially that the tea house is located in a crowded vintage building. Frozen for a minute.
Joan came in late, so we accompanied her to the nearby fastfood. After our heritage tour in Bacarra, we filled ourselves again, to the brim, with toasted isaw, fishballs and kikiam at Tayamen’s. Thank you, Tsang!
