It's the Ibanag's daughter's birthday tomorrow January 9. But first, she's in Manila for her usual holiday vacation from Jakarta.
So today she takes me out for lunch and for a change she tells me let's eat seafood, Mommy. Okey, I say. She doesn't know that my stomach has been acting like crazy in the last 2 days. She's not aware that first I got the flu and then these terrible tummy aches today.
So, we go to this 'classy' IT hub cum condominium all over' community, looking for a nice seafood restaurant and ordered nothing but, what else seafood. We ordered tuna belly, crab rice and baked oysters. The tuna belly, I believe slightly seared first and then bathed nicely with vegetable oil that went with the classic chili-soy sauce-calamansi juice dip was good. The crab rice, uuuhmm, well I didn't taste much crab
there, but so-so. If the crab rice recipe was kindda wanting the baked oysters in cream and butter, did me in. Yuuum.
Tummy saver of the day - the chamomile tea. Great for my aching intestines. Ooops. Sorry.
