Another oldie but goodie place to eat in the Metro is Gloria Maris. They have such a wide variety of dimsums, congee, noodles and hot pot.
Just had to take an extra picture because I super love soup dumplings! :)
Hakaw - shrimp dumpling
Can't comment on this since I can't eat crustaceans.
Chicken asparagus soup - Broth and asparagus tastes good but the chicken's overcooked IMO.
Yang chao fried rice
Of course I wasn't allowed to eat this because it has shrimps in it. :/ My life kind of sucks, doesn't it? x(
Beef with ampalaya (bitter melon)
I'm not a fan of bitter melons and will never be. :P This doesn't taste bad though. The meat was cooked just right and the bitter melon's flavor isn't that strong.
Beef Tenderloin Chinese Style
Meat was rather on the rubbery side. :/ But I liked the flavor so I still ate a lot of this, haha!
Suckling Pig! :@)
An old time favorite of mine. I am not particularly fond of Gloria Maris' suckling pig but this one was awesome! The skin was so crispy and the fat and meat was tender and succulent.

Anyway, I spotted this while I was at Rustans last night.
I got a ddung doll!
Picnic Day ddung doll.
The SA asked me if I wanted to have it gift wrapped. :P Ermmm... I just like buying random stuff and I think ddung dolls are cute. Shall be getting the Alice in Wonderland one next time. Haha!
Of course I just had to buy candies too and ended up picking up Tutti Frutti jelly beans. :p
What's your favorite jelly bean flavor? :)
