Before I left Manila for long-term work in Penang, I savored not only my family but the company of old and new friends. My family and I were treated a lot of times to restaurants with dishes that I have been missing. Here are couple of those dinner dates we enjoyed.

GUMBO, SM Mall of Asia, 23July2010, Friday.

This dinner at Gumbo courtesy of my great friend, Rob ofย Sensory Replays was shared with 2 other cheerful blog mates, Chyng ofย No Spam, No Virus, No Kidding! and Dyan of Princess Dyanie. (Photos below taken using Dyan’s cam. Note to self: I should work hard, settle what needs to settle and buy myself a DSLR, LOL).

Thanks Rob, Dyan & Chyng! How are you, guys? Kain tayo ulit sa Pasko pag uwi ko; or you may come to Penang and I’ll show you around; KKB (dutch treat) nga lang, LOL!

Next Eat-Out THE NEXT DAY: FISH and COMPANY, Shangri La Plaza with best friends, Rob and LG, my wife Tina and our son Gabby.

Fish and Company yummies :

Despite the fact that I am gradually embracing the spicy and other flavorful and fascinating dishes in Penang, still nothing beats savoring gastronomic delights in the company of your loved ones.

Iย  miss foods in Pinas, most of all, I miss my family so much.

Thank you Skype, you melt my homesickness away. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love you honey and Gabby!

    1. good question! since july 30th that we arrived here in penang, we haven’t tried cooking because we’re only on our temporary accomodation. all of the 20+ Pinoy MDs here including myself, are scheduled to move in to our permanent places beginning this weekend until next week. soon after those dates, we hope to cook our own meals.
      we’re all starving for non-spicy and non-curried foods!
      we seriously want adobo, LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. there—already voted. I cut the link though and lost it. when I refreshed the page to get the html again —-this message was displayed.

    “”You have already voted,
    Your last vote was not added to the results””

    I hope it was counted~~

    1. salamat! may 10% popularity sa criterion kasi e.
