Park 'N Fly Service

Two weeks ago, me and hubby went for a three-day break in Cebu and Bohol. Our flight schedule was 4:30 am so we had to leave our home at around 1:30 am to allot 2 hours for check-in prior to the flight. Since waiting for a taxi cab in the wee hour of the morning in our area is very difficult, we decided to get the service of Park 'N Fly located at Ptt gas station in cor of Mia Road and Domestic Road.

I liked their service, because all you have to do is leave your car there, and they will drive your car in their carpark area.

You'll need to register in this area and fill out an information sheet. They will ask of course for your ID's and some car documents such as a photocopy of your OR and CR. Then, they'll give you a stub wherein you have to present it upon claiming your car.

You don't need to pay immediately. They will compute the hours of the stay of the vehicle. It's P380.00 for the first 24 hours and P16.00 per succeeding hours. We paid a total of P 1,142 for the 3 day stay of our vehicle.

They are open 24 hours ...

When we were there, I've noticed lots of customers were availing their service too.

No worries because they have a free shuttle service to the airport upon your departure and arrival. So next time, try not to worry anymore if no one will drive you in the wee hours of the morning because there's Park 'N Fly, just leave your car there and they'll take care of it ;)

Nameplates and Notebook Labels

Well, these are the things that kept us busy in the past weeks. Me and hubby are making nameplates and notebooks labels for so many years now. We are the only shop in our area who are into these that's why every opening of school, expect that our shop is jam-pack with parents who wants to have a new nameplate for their kids.

We only made a standard size nameplates
( kids will become uncomfortable if their nameplates are too big)


we also make notebook labels with characters
we use sticker paper for this :)

cool isn't it?


Hello friends! Sorry for my long absence. The month of June is always been a busy month for me, Preparing for the opening of classes for my two kids and our small computer shop is kinda busy too for we have a sideline during the first two weeks (making notebook labels and nameplates). I'll try my best to share with you guys our detailed trip in Cebu and Bohol respectively. Till my next post :)

Tapella by Gaudi

Sigh…. I should have posted this entry 3 weeks ago, but my computer was having a trouble that time that I couldn’t see my personal folder that contains pics of this event. Thanks to my good friend Peachy who provided me extra pictures so that I can blog about this truly exciting food bloggers event.

I was one of the few bloggers who were invited in a cooking demo by Chef Alexandra Cacho of Tapella by Gaudi. It’s a restaurant located at Greenbelt 5 that specialize in serving Tapas and paellas. Chef Alexandra thought us how to cook Paella Manchego, Cojonudos and mix some sangria on the side. I am very eager to learn how to cook a paella because my husband loves this dish so much.

Chef Alexandra showing us how to cook Paella Manchego and she happily shared us some trivia and tips too about cooking paella :)

Paella Manchego

This paella is extra special because it's Chef's personal creation. It was perfectlty cook and heavenly good for it has Manchego cheese from Spain that gives the paella a more unique taste.

The 2nd dish that she prepared was the Cojonudos, it's very simple to prepare, Chef just put a sliced Serrano ham on top, fried quail eggs, a strip of pimiento and a drop of olive oil and that's it!

White Garlic and Almond Soup

After the demo cooking, we were seated already when they served us this shooter. It really tasted garlicky as the name suggest. It's served cold and I didn't like the taste coz i'm not used to it.

Camembert with Caramelized Onions on Fluted Bread
I really really like this ! It's a must try when you visited the store.

Octopus with paprika, salt and virgin olive oil
It's an exotic dish but it tasted good too.

"el Bulli"

(Calamari w/ black ink batter)
It's actually a calamari with a twist for they used the black ink of the squid in the batter that's why the color is extremely black

Chorizo stewed in red wine
(this dish was another favorite of mine)

Beef tenderloin Salpicado w/ White Beans

The taste is good, everybody love this dish in the glass :)

Last to be served was a platter of desserts :)

Everything on it was good!

I would suggest that you go to Tapella by Gaudi on Greenbelt 5 if ever you're thinking of some good Spanish restaurant. You'll never go wrong with them, that I assure you :)
