Weekend Food Tripping at: Cyma + Happy Mother's Day!!!


I want to wish all mommies Happy Mother's Day!!!

I am wishing 2 of the best moms in the world. My Mother-in-law and my Mommy.

My MIL is such a wonderful and cool MIL that I've never encountered the "In-laws" problem since I got married! I want to thank her for accepting me wholeheartedly to the family!



My mommy is my best friend. We've never been close when I was growing up and I don't understand why she's such a strict mom! But as I grow older, I've come to realize that a big part of who I am is because of my mom! With her endless love and support for me and my siblings, we've all grown up to say "I love you and I miss you" without feeling any shame! She made me who I am now!



Because it's Mother's Day, I will be off for another busy weekend food tripping for both my Hubby's mom and my mom! 2 separate events so more weekend food posts coming!!!

-------------------------------------------

For now, I will be talking about a restaurant I've had over the weekend a couple of weeks ago with my date! The hubby! LOL

I come to realize though... when I talk about food, I do give out a huge "crazy-looking" grin that I can't stop! lol That's how much I love food and based on the comments from my dear friends when I do food tripping, I want to *high five* each and everyone of you for sharing the same passion with me when it comes to beauty, skincare and FOOD!!!

I've had a wonderful time in a restaurant that's always jampacked! Yes, I have to leave them my mobile phone number for them to message me if our table is available!!! Thanks to my colleague Pam for introducing me to this restaurant and the hubby and I had to revisit!!!

PROTOS CYMA GREEK TAVERNA
at L6 Shangri-la Plaza Mall



Family Style Greek Salad
Php330.00 (approx $6.75)

With mixed greens, red cabbage, tomatoes, capers, cucumber, Feta cheese, pine nuts, bow-tie pasta and black olives, served with your choice of Cyma's Summer Herb or Traditional Greek Vinaigrette. I love how different this taste from regular salad I've always tried in restaurants. The hubby loves it, I love it!



Pork Souvlaki
Php330.00 (approx $6.75)

Skewered with fresh vegetables
and a sour cream dip!!!
HEAVENLY!



You'd think it wasn't a lot but we are super full!!! The servings are both in SOLO but it's really perfect for 2 to share!!! Will definitely go back!

---------------------------------------------------

Before I end this post, I want to share something I am excited about for the coming week! I will be studying again!!! Yes, I have enrolled at Basement Academy to study Beauty Makeup Course! I want to learn further and expand my knowledge in make-up!

I've seen their course coverage, and I have met their staffs and I am very impressed with the school surroundings and the helpfulness of the staffs. It will be an intensive 2 weeks course from 6:00pm-10:00pm. Yes, I will be a vampire for the next 2 weeks! But don't worry, I'll definitely share what I've learn here!

I will also be classmate with a dear blogger friend KIM *waves* It'll be an adventure!!!

Keep smilin'
Stay Happy! :)
