An afternoon spent at the Museong Pambata and SM Mall of Asia..
We are spending some time with family before our big move. We didn’t plan any of these so we didn’t have any fixed itineraries during our stay. So ultimately, our plan was to have no plans at all! LOL! And, just let each day pass by and decide where to go and whom to meet as the days go by.

A lovely lunch at Salamanca restaurant on a “quite” sunny Sunday..
A few days after my last day at work, my husband kept teasing me about “celebrating” it. He wanted me to treat him for lunch – or maybe he is just trying to find a reason to dine out, LOL! I mean, how can I possibly treat him for lunch right now, right?! I am unemployed!

Enjoyed the lovely view while having lunch at Fallon and Byrne (People’s Park)..
A couple of weeks ago, we went to Dun Laoghaire for a quick family day out on a long weekend. Back then, we hoped that it was our last long weekend in Ireland. But it wasn’t. Nevertheless, it was great for us to experience the lovely seaside views in Dun Laoghaire during the last few summer days of 2017 – for sure!

A quick and spontaneous lunch at Wagamama..
When in need of a good-tasting and kid-friendly places for a bite – Wagamama is one of the first things that pops to mind. Why wouldn’t it? It is one of those places where you are guaranteed with freshly made Japanese food that doesn’t cost as much! Plus, they are one of the child-friendly places around Dublin without a fuss – so it makes them truly likable for us.

When we find ourselves in Howth, we often go to The Oar House
Howth is a top-choice when the sun is shining brightly in Dublin. It is a great place to spend the day walking around the area. Apart from buying fresh seafood from the local fish monger, there are good quality restaurants around the area, too!

Been a looong time since I’ve been to the Irish Village Markets even if it was super close to home!
Every Wednesday at lunchtime, there are food stalls selling freshly-made and easy-to-eat lunchboxes. The food options are quite good. There are gourmet burgers, paella, kebabs and the usual Irish staple – fish and chips! The location was literally just across the street from where we live but it’s been such a long time since I’ve been here! The market starts at around 11:30 AM and ends at around 2 or 3-ish in the afternoon. Roughly around the same time that I always get busy with meetings and work. But now that I am a stay-at-home Mom, I can finally grab a quick bite from the stalls! Yay!

We recently celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary! Woot! So, off we went to have dinner at Drunken Fish..
Let me begin by saying that this is not a thorough restaurant review of Drunken Fish – a Korean restaurant in the IFSC area in Dublin. We’ve been here countless times before and have eaten more “familiar” Korean dishes. But, this is the first time we visited the place after our recent Seoul trip. We went here on one of the rare sunny and warm weeknights in Ireland. And, also to celebrate our wedding anniversary!

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.

The August Bank Holiday just passed by! That day, we spent the entire day in Dun Laoghaire..
With all the upcoming changes to our family, the August Bank Holiday weekend could be our last bank holiday here in Dublin. And because of that, we wanted to make the most of it – by going to places we’ve never been to before. One of those is Dun Laoghaire!
