Boring Monday

I am pretty bored today. Many things to do in the office but no drive to achieve anything today. I am quite pest as we are leaving for Surabaya, Indonesia on Wednesday to attend a print exhibit but my passport is lost. We just moved so it could be in another box or other bag. But I was told that they have opened everything already.

Best Lomi Served in Onils

We didnt like the food last night, its the usual chicken adobo and fish. So we took a little walk around the village and visited Onils House. Its a typical Bahay Kubo house but the food that they served is really exquisite. Masarap talaga that even my German boss likes to eat there.

Best seller is the Lomi. If I a not mistaken, its Batangas style. Its really yummy. And its only Php 50.00. What can you ask for? Cheap and delicious!

Highly recommended. I want to give a rating of 10.

Bravo! Onils!

Milk Allergy

Received a text message yesterday at around 4:00 PM that Alexa had an allergy. I immediately called home and check what really happened.

Trixie, one of the helper at home bought the wrong milk. Alexa’s milk is Nan 1 but instead she bought the Nan HW1. The yaya, Leah, knew already that the milk is different and yet still fed Alexa. At around 10:00 AM, she saw some red spots in Alexa’s legs. She thought it was just insect bite so she applied ointment.

At around 3:30 PM when Alexa woke up, Leah noticed that Alexa has red spots in the face, neck and stomach. So they texted me. I immediately sent a driver to pick up the baby, stayed in the office for sometime to check her condition and at 5:30 PM, we went to St Dominic Medical Center in Bacoor for check up. She was given 3 drops of Virlix and after some time, she stopped scratching her ears and pulling her hair. read more
