Amazing Domestic Seafood Recipe

I would always love eating! :)...at least even my husband would tell me, eating is my hobby. Well, I agree with him :).
When it comes to seafoods, I love shrimps the most! Any kind of cooking will do. And talking about a very simple domestic seafood dish that I would like to create and eat, I would love it a grilled shrimp with a garlic sauce on it! I can then pair it with rice mixed with vegetables. Now, that's what you call a hearty meal! lol!
As long as it is shrimp, I would love to cook it in any variations, be it cooked plainly fried, it always looks mouth-watering to me. But I think the best pair for any cooked shrimp particularly if it's grilled or fried is the garlic sauce. Most people love garlic, if not all. A grilled shrimp with garlic sauce can actually be very ideal for a picnic party...I was a witness to that by the way, and I was one of those who feasted on those garlic grilled shrimps :).
I am always excited to witness the 5th Annual Great American Seafood Cook off in New Orleans on August 2 and 3. I am far from the event, so I am just wishing they can do it live on TV. I am sure everybody will never go starving watching the 14 chefs compete on stage with their action packed seafood specialties and the exciting must see event for guest chefs' cooking demonstrations. This event creates positiveness of domestic seafood sustainability. Well, who do you think will be the next King of American Seafood??...will it be from Maryland? :).

Niagara Falls At Night

My trip to see Niagara Falls was memorable, the fact that I went with our church group and hubby of course!. There are so much more to be shared, but meantime, let me tell you that one of the highlights was watching the illumination of the falls at night.



We were in the observation deck which is on the US side (New York), and it was chilly up there. But bearing the cold windy atmosphere was worth it. The following night, we stationed ourselves at the Horeshoe Falls and waited for the fireworks. Although the wait was longer than the fireworks as expected, it was fun!

VIP City Tours (New Orleans) - LOUISIANA

Our tour started at 1pm that lasted for 2 hours. It started with the tour guide's introduction of the city of New Orleans...the birthplace of Jazz music! We went around the city's famous buildings and historical places. Not much photos to share in here since we're on mobile and had no chance to stop and go down to take photos. (If stops were allowed, then the tour might last 4-5 hours I guess, LOL!)





Then we proceeded to the devastated Lower Ninth Ward by hurricane katrina. I got a few photos plus a video clip while touring around. It was only at that time I had known that New Orleans is geographically in the lowlands, surrounded by marshlands and a bayou!...the main reason why the flood went as high as 8 feet.



The only stop that we did was at the St. louis cemetery #3, or widely known as "Cities of the Dead." There is a long story behind that and telling all about here would be a long chapter to be written, hehehe...anyway, if you're interested about the story, just google it, and read from there :)



Anyway, it was chilly that day! It just freezes my feet walking. So I just feel lazy walking and not much of going around by foot.

Exploring Boracay's Nature

Boracay Beach has been one of the most famously visited beach located in the western part of the Visayas, Philippines. Tourists swarm in during the peak season including foreigners.
For me this was my second visit after 10 years! A lot of big difference! There are many hotels in the island and we were able to get a good one at Pearl of the Pacific. We got a good room as well!

There are actually nice places to visit around the island if you're a nature seeker. We tried the butterfly garden, aside from the island hopping. Not much of them are there since they were still being hatched. There were also a group of bats that was there and hubby was able to get hold of him. Sorry, I wasn't convinced to hold the bat...I was freakingly scared! lol!...

Butterfly Garden:




Island Hopping:
It was very wavy so we only visited few spots. The crystal cove island was a bit far and there were only two of us in the boat plus 2 sailors. It was wavy and I just told them to return the boat back to the island. I don't wanna be risking our lives on that boat. Besides, it was already turning dark it was about to rain that time.Some shots:

St. Bartholomew Parish Church - Nagcarlan, Laguna




This church is one of the oldest existing church worth visiting in Nagcarlan, one of the towns on the southeastern part of Laguna. Laguna is just 30 kms south of Manila. The church has been built with lighter materials wayback the 15th century, and has been renovated in 1752 after it caught fire. Reconstruction was done in 1845. One thing making this church visited by many is the famous big old bell up the belfry. Local movie shoots are being held up the belfry as well, and I was just too curious to see that bell being famous because of the local TV series "kampanerang kuba" shooting scenes up there that became popular in the Philippines.
Climbing up the stairs going up the belfry might be challenging to some particularly the oldies :). Well, I was huffing and buffing when I finally got the chance to reach and see the bell. It's all worth it, so I deserve to ge a hug of the bell lol!

Underground Cemetery-Nagcarlan, Laguna, Philippines

Together with my hubby and friends from Texas


With Josie, my friend.



My sister in law is from Nagcarlan. So, when she got married to my brother last year, it so happened that the place is just 10 minutes away from where we were staying. We met our friends there, so we visited the place. No cameras are allowed inside too, so obviously no photos. The entrance is free but donations are encouraged to help maintain the place and the watcher I guess :).

The Underground Cemetery is considered to be a tourist attraction in Nagcarlan and is the only one of its kind in the Philippines. It used to be a burial ground for Spanish priests and other people which was built around 1845. Surrounding the chapel are 248 crypts while the underground has 36.
