Panagbenga 2011: Baguio's Flower Festival

Every year, on the month of February, Baguio City holds a flower festival, which culminates on a floral parade, that passes through its main street, Session Road. People start to line the street as early as 5 AM to get a good seat on the sidewalks. The floats alternately pass through both ways of the road. It is suggested that you go there early and find a good place fronting Don Henrico's or Andok's as the other side of the street faces the sun making it difficult to take photographs. Be sure to bring your own blanket or paper to use as seats on the sidewalk.

Dinner in Baguio - Vizco's Restaurant

While walking along Session Road in Baguio City during Panagbenga 2011, my wife, daughter and I found this restaurant just beside Don Henrico's. As we had already tried Don Henrico's a couple of times, we decided to try out Vizco's Restaurant.
We thought it odd that place was empty when we came in. Later did we found out that most of the clients prefer to dine on the 2nd floor.

A Taste of India, 19 February 2011

Ever since we had a taste of chicken tikka masala (CTM) in Australia, we're always on the lookout for a good one here in Manila. We had it in the foodcourt in Glorietta and lately at the Kebab Factory in SM Megamall. We usually have it with either plain or buttered naan (a flat bread cooked in a tandoori oven).

When I saw last year that Ensogo had a promo for an Indian restaurant (Legend of India) in Makati, I bought two (2) vouchers at P200 each but worth P500 of food each or a 60% discount.
