LIDO home of chinese pugon-roasted asado

The day after my boyfriend had an overnight shoot in Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro.. He decided to treat me and have a dinner date somewhere near our place while strolling around Makati we passed a restaurant named LIDO cocina tsina  in Pasong Tamo.

Lido is home of chinese pugon roasted asado. it is thin strip of roasted pork served withsweet  asado sauce.

 because of curiosity we entered the restaurant and look through the menu, you'll have a hard time thinking of what to eat cause they offer a lot of deicious and mouthwatering dishes, from beff, pork, seafood and ofcourse dessert. 
The Menu
 The price was reasonable and affordable and the service is really good.

The Dessert
 We ordered Pinipig jelly adn mango jelly for dessert.

Steamed Fish with special house soy sauce.

My Flawless Beauty Transformation

When i was a child i idolized a lot of actors and actresses with beautiful and glowing white complexion, i want to be like Donita Rose and Carmina Villaroel from then on i was dreaming to be whiter like them because when you have fair complexion any type or color of clothes will look good on you. i'm always being teased by my friend and relatives because of my not so fair skin and at school when there is a play specially if its about filipino culture i was always asked to play the role of the aborigines for their not so fair complexion, it really lowered my self esteem and confident that why i tried tons of whitening products, lotions, soap, moisturizer, cream etc.  

Every filipina dreams of having more fairer skin, as a filipina given a chance to win this amazing prize from FLAWLESS i'll choose the GLUTATHIONE INJECTABLES 

Glutathione not only helps a person to be whiter but it also prevents neurons to die which is a very big help for our nervous system, and the side effects? hmmmm... it's the having whiter, smoother and softer skin! now if we can only make every medicine and drugs to have this kind of a side effect then every filipina would be very happy!
i heard from persons, beauty doctors and celebrities that this is a harmless method, and has greater chance of having more fairer, smoother and softer skin. 

In celebration of its 11th birthday, Flawless is inviting everyone to take advantage of its 1 + 1 beauty blowout this National Flawless Month. If this isn’t the best time to boost or jumpstart your top to toe beauty transformation, then I don’t know what is. Go to or visit a clinic near you for more information.

A home is a very hard find, why is a house a basic need? a house gives us shelter, protects us from rain and the heat of the sun, it protects us from outsiders that wants to harm us and our family, it symbolizes the social stature you're in.

bohol 9th year getaway! (island hopping)

The last day of our trip is island hopping im very excited for this day! we got up around 5 in the morning to have a walk along the shoreline, because our accommodation is a block away from the beach, our tour guide met us on a place by the beach where the bangkas( boats ) dock, the tour hired a bangka ( boat ) for island hopping trip to BALICASAG ISLAND and VIRGIN island and to look for dolphins and whale sharks. the sand in PANGLAO beach is very beautiful and white at par with the sand of boracay.sadly we didn't enjoy panglao beach because we need to take our boat very early to look for dolphins early in the morning.
the sunrise of PANGLAO island

off to go look for dolphins.taking some picture!

our bangkero's
sadly i dont have picture of dolphins because the dolphins was so shy that day but we saw a couple a far about a minute or so.


as we come closer and closer to balicasag island our excitement  to go snorkeling goes bigger and bigger! our bangkero said that we need to rent shoes (price of shoe 80 pesos only) for us not to be cut and injured by the sharp corals and we need to rent a lifeguard to look after us (this is free if you have a package from agency). you have to buy biscuits to feed the fish so they can go near you, the underwater world of balicasag island is very outstanding, amazing, awesome worth the 2nd 3rd nth time to go snorkeling or diving, the island is very i mean VERY abundant of different types of fish we saw big tunas yellow fin blue fins we even saw a huge sea turle. the reef of the island is like a very deep cliff underwater and you can see different types of corals anf fishes in their natural habitat and the size of them are extra ordinary you can see how the island is well maintained and preserved strictly for touring and viewing only.

this is our underwater pic with some fishes

me and my partner ^_^

After snorkeling its almost  lunch so you better take a lunch before you go to VIRGIN ISLAND.  some of the people in that island will offer you to eat at their "carenderia" (food stall). the menu ofcourse seafood yummy!.after you take the lunch you can tell your bangkero to go to virgin island.
Balicasag Lighthouse Tower

taking some picture of our bangkero he holds a kawayan to move our boat because it is low tide that time.

center of the bay of virgin island

the women in picture was the sample of low tide and you see how far the island right? yah! hanggang jan ang low tide that time.

the Virgin island

me and my partner strike a pose!

the island have no rest house , kubo or anything that can protect you from the heat of the sun only the shades of the trees but anyhow who needs shade if you have a very beautiful view in front of you. we tried to walk around at island as you can see in the picture their so many seagrass near the pure white sand because its super low tide. we dont have a picture of a high tide?(confused) if what is the view?well some people say the island vanishes.hehehe! scary! though technically it doesnt but at high tide the the whole part of the island with sand is covered by sea water just up until your ankles and still you can walk along the beach except at night ofcourse you might end up not seeing your way and walk straight to the deep part of the sea.

im in the center of virgin island

The virgin island is curved. while we are walking along the beach of the island there are a lot of star fish, sea shell, sea urchins, sea grass and many more!

Hope you can visit BOHOL for your vacation! enjoy!
