25 Mushrooms Kitchen

have you heard of a school for househelps? there is one in valle verde called 25 Mushrooms Kitchen. recently, our maid went in training and have already finished the basic course... the main topic of the said training is cooking... with minor lessons in table setting, serving, food preservation etc...
the basic course is offered at Php4000 for 4 whole days (stretched in a month's time)... each day focusing on a particular cuisine...thai, italian, japanese and filipino...
so far, i am quite impressed with the result of my maid's cooking...

after one routine check up with our ob... we went to try the new portuguese restaurant along jupiter street in makati.

gambas was good! prawns were a little huge for my standard but the taste was great...
Php240 ... first round of roti was free

tenderloin steak Php620
wrapped with honey bacon...
the sweetness of the plum sauce gave it a unique taste...
fish & chips Php260
this dish was ok... nothing spectacular about it...

seafood paella Php340
this was really good... but i think it would be better if they serve it on a hot plate para may tutong!

orlina glass

it was such a privilege to be able to visit the workshop/gallery of one of the most respectable filipino artist... mr ramon orlina! thanks to mr ivan co who made the visit possible...

i learned that he is married to a malay-chinese lady, who was so kind and hospitable during our visit. she showed us how the glass sculptures are meticulously being made. here are some of my favorites:
this is the mother & child
the martial arts men
our purchase: the angel
i would love to have that giant ring behind... sadly its not for sale!
