Aside from these meet-ups and appointments I’ve many more errands to run. Too much for one week really but I gotta try my best to get it done!
We then had light dinner at Masseto this elegant restaurant in Salcedo (was inspired to go there by this post on Rajo Laurel’s blog). So far all the material I read about this place has been rave reviews. I will be honest and say that I love the place and ambiance (how it’s so intimate, like a private members only establishment), the simple but chic interiors and the amazing flower arrangements (by Maita Fores if I am not mistaken?) however we were not bowled over by the food. It was good but for the price I expected it to be better. My MIL (mother-in-law) got the cream pasta with duck (about P550 if I recall correctly) and she said there was something missing so she asked for some truffle paste which made the dish much better. Perhaps we ordered the wrong things? What do you think? (Sidenote: I can’t believe this has been there since 2009!)

Of course I haven’t been to the places you went to! Hahaha. Is this Salon de Ning the old Conservatory? Is my reference so outdated??? That’s what motherhood can do…
Hope you have time to meet up! But if you have no time, no pressure din ha!
Hi OCmom, my friend said it used to be the old area for their breakfast buffet? I’m not familiar with the Conservatory… perhaps I was still a dork during those days…? I didn’t use to go out a lot hehe

How nice! You have a big list of things to do there! Fun, fun, fun! I hope we can get together soon after you come back. I’ll keep reading your twitter so that I’ll know. 🙂 Ensaymada looks yummy! How funny you said you can open your mouth in the shower in Manila. I wish the water quality in Jakarta was better… Have a great time!!!
