New York Supreme

It's food trip once again and this time its Italian.

New York Supreme is a newly opened restaurant in Angeles City located along the hi way. It serves pizza and pasta. I've been to this resto twice already. The first time was when I treated my friends for my birthday and the second time was last Friday with my friends at work. I fell in love with their Panizza accompanied with pesto sauce, alfalfa and arugula and Chicken Pasta Parmigiana, red sauced penne pasta topped with fried chicken breast fillet and creamy/cheesy sauce. Their red sauced pasta has Italian flavor rich in tomato sauce and tomato paste. Pinoys are fond of sweet style spaghetti and having to try real Italian Style pasta is a delight to my tastebud. What I like most about New York Supreme is their affordable pitcher of iced tea. My friends and I had 3 to 4 rounds of glass of iced tea.

Zapata's Mexican Resto

There are so many great restaurants in Friendship, Angeles City that caters to international customers. A lot of Americans, Australians and other nationalities are married to Filipinas and residing in Friendship and some of them have established businesses in Clarkfield Pampanga. Truly, there's no place like Philippines.

C Italian is being visited by celebrities because of its famous and unparralled Panizza. The chef/owner guested in "Secrets of the Masters" of QTV 11. Rumpa and VMW is usually housed by retired Americans & Australians, they offer steaks and various American foods and the servings is usually good for two (meant for a foreign customer with big bellys...LOL).

My friends at work had the chance to dine in Zapata's 2 weeks ago or so. This mexican restaurant was featured in WMN website and the controversial actress and host Kris Aquino raved about their quesadillas. It was my first time to dine in Zapata's and the ambiance inside was great...big and tidy. It will instantly make you feel you're in Mexico.

Our appetizer was quesadillas. This is my favorite among the 3 dishes we ordered. I love the simple taste and you can hardly guess what type of cheese they use. We finished this dish in a snap!

Fajitas was served next. It consists of chicken stips, grilled peppers and mexi rice matched with salsa and sour cream. It's up to you how much rice & chicken you put in the tortilla.

Finally, we had tacos with soft shell. It was okay but the taste of the cheese was too mild for me. I love anything with cheese...mozarella, parmesan, cheddar etc.

I love their refreshing cold iced tea.

We left Zapata's with a smile on our face, this Mexican Resto deserves another visit.

PS: Thank you Collyn for letting me grab the photos from your blog.

A Year Older

I turned a year older last May 16. I am overwhelmed with the birthday greetings and wishes I received from family, friends and acquaintances through facebook and SMS. There was no party but I fulfilled my promise to my kids to bring them in a nearby resort for a night swimming. My friends have been inviting me to resorts within the city, they also organized an outing in Abra where one of my friends and her family are currently residing and try Pagudpud beach but I politely declined. We will be attending my brother in law's wedding on June 08 and my daughter Acey will act as one of the flower girls and I do not want her complexion to darken because of swimming and most importantly, I can't allow my kids stay in the water under the scorching heat of the sun even if there are various sunblocks available with higher SPF. I believe dermatologists when they say that direct exposure in the sun can cause harmful effects. Two hours of night swimming is already enough for my kids. It made their summer complete!

Mother's Day!

When I woke up on Sunday morning last week, my daughter Acey immediately greeted me "Happy Mother's day", my son CJ did the same. Such gesture instantly put a smile on my face and made me realize it's a special day for moms.

We didn't have celebration but we attended a birthday party and they enjoyed it immensely because of the games, magic show and lootbags they got as giveaways and prizes for winning in the games.

Belated Happy Mother's Day to all my fellow great MOMs
