Been craving for Malaysian/Singaporean food for sometime now and so glad to find Kopitiam!
Dublin is fast becoming a city with a diverse taste. All thanks to the growing numbers of migrants entering the city. But these developments did not happen overnight. My husband often tells me the food scene in Dublin when he arrived more than 10 years ago is nothing compared to what we have right now. And even so, I still feel as if there are certain cuisines I am missing over here!

We celebrated our fifth year wedding anniversary by having dinner at Pig’s Ear restaurant..
A few years ago, I wondered whether dining out will be as it used to be. You know, no need to feel embarrassed when the baby starts to cry or to worry about pram space to get in. And when I think about those moments, it made me think whether I’d be able to go back to Pig’s Ear again.

A late post, but let me share with you where we went for Mother’s Day..
Chinese food is one of my husband’s comfort food. But even if this is mostly my husband’s “thing” I also miss the occasional yang chow fried rice or Schezuan-based dishes quality Chinese restaurants around Dublin has to offer!
Similar to the years before, we celebrated Mother’s Day last May. We’ve grown accustomed to this because this is when we celebrate Mother’s Day in the Philippines. So, we decided to keep what we know!

The Marker Hotel Brasserie has been a favorite for a long time – and I’ll share why
The Marker Hotel Brasserie is one of our favorite dining places in Dublin. The location is superb (especially if it’s a warm day) not to mention the prices is not that expensive – if I compare it to other dining places we go to around Dublin city center.

My husband chose Chez Max at Palace St to celebrate Father’s Day last June..
It’s been a while since we dined at Chez Max at Palace St. And for a long time, I really, really thought it was Baggot St. LOL! Well, that only proves one thing – my sense of direction is terrible!!!!

Been a while since I had Thai food! So we decided to go visit Siam – a Thai restaurant in Dundrum shopping center
Dundrum shopping center is one of our go-to places when we want to have a “different day” on a weekend. Because it is quite far from where we live, we often stay there for the entire day. We usually go there early in the morning. And then, let our son play in a play cafe inside the shopping center, have lunch, and just roam around the mall while my son takes his nap.

Trying Taste of Brazil’s 5-platter menu for Groupon
Did you ever experience badly craving to go out for a bite but don’t have enough money to spend? That’s me these days. Trying to save some cash for an upcoming trip so as much as possible, I want to be a bit frugal when it comes to spending my money when eating out.
During these times, I often visit Groupon or LivingSocial and get some deals to eat out. I don’t want to keep eating the same food I have inside the house, been indoors during weekdays so itching to go out, too. And I don’t want to stuff myself with fast food the entire time I am trying to be a bit frugal, LOL! So, buying vouchers is the next best thing for me!

Beef and Lobster in Dublin was one of the few restaurants open on January 3..so we tried it out!
After the holiday festivities, Dublin city center seems like a ghost town. Some shops and restaurants are not open for business until the second week of January. So, if you are walking around the city center around this time of the year, expect some hot spots to remain closed for business!

On my little one’s birthday, we went to Makati Avenue for an early lunch!
This is one of my super late posts! Apart from lacking time to write, there are a lot more important posts I felt must be published first before this. But as they say, “it is better late than never!“
I posted about my little one’s birthday celebration over here. My son turned three but we didn’t arrange any parties for him. We felt that apart from the expense – he won’t appreciate it that much yet! He is still developing his social skills and doesn’t really care about other kids his age. So planning a party may not be the most practical thing to do.

Badly craving for some noodles topped with roasted duck, alright
Back in the days when I was living in Singapore, eating HongKong-style noodles topped with roasted duck was one of my comfort foods. I love the simplicity of the food not to mention it is super cheap over there, too!
However, after relocating here, I didn’t find any that does it the way I got used to. Of course, we had the very common chow mien when dining in Chinese restaurants in the city but sometimes, simplicity is the key to finding good food.
