07.21.14: Bida ang sarap!
Hello, dolls!! Happy Sunday!!! Our third pre-cana class just ended and ahhhh I can’t believe that we are almost at the end of this beautiful journey. We had an amazing day today! Although I must say, I overslept a little haha (but hey! I deserve it after working almost 13 hours yesterday!) So we went to church and had brunch at one of the best brunch places here in Baltimore, then had a good afternoon in class. How I love Sundays like this! Earlier, I prayed for more meaningful Sundays like today this year. My heart breaks just thinking about February ending so soon…and how after the wedding our work schedules will most likely get in the way. Thank God for our pre-cana because we get to be on the same page about our relationship and important things without getting into an argument or trying too hard.
So we are just 6 days away from Valentine’s….meaning 6 days until my father-in-law turns 60! What’s exciting about it is that we will be in New Jersey the day after so I am pretty hyped up about that. A short vacation is much needed for A and I!
I have 6 days to dream about our upcoming getaway, for now I’ll blog about our New York side trip that happened over the summer.
A would often say that he wishes we have Jollibee close to us. When we are in New Jersey, he would drop hints saying we should go to Jollibee for lunch.
So when we were in New York we decided to take the girls cause they’ve never tried Jollibee.
2 buckets of fried chicken, rice, 4 large fries, 4 sundaes, yumburger, and my avocado pearl shake…. YES! When in Jollibee….YOU GO BIG! 😉
So my fiance had a 1/3 lb. burger, 2 pieces of fried chicken, fries,rice, a large drink,and sundae.
I don’t know where he put everything that he ate. But I guess that’s what happens when you miss Jollibee too much. haha
After our Jollibee trip, we went to Titan Foods, a Greek supermarket. It is the best Greek grocery here in the East Coat.
Olive bar — just one of the many reasons why this place is awesome!
Cheese and cold cuts,anyone?
Oh you know, just a normal day to find smoked herring.
Just 2 of the MANY feta cheeses that they have. And when I say many…. I mean a HUGE glass case!
A standing dessert case of delicious pastries! Can I live here for a week?
Greek pastries… I want them all! YES!
The father-in-law got me these treats to try! Mmmm
A and I had to go back to Baltimore after our titan trip. But of course, A being a f-Asian said that we should make a quick stop in New Jersey to check 2 of the Filipino groceries that they have there.
We went to Jollibee oriental food mart first and saw a couple of stuff that we do not have in Baltimore. So those made us feel like it was already worth the trip.
They had carioca in their small glass case! and some other Filipino favorites as well.
A few blocks down is Little Manila.
The steam table of Filipino dishes kind of made me wish that we did not eat a lot for lunch. Everything looked so delish!
What welcomed us in Baltimore. Our favorite Chinese restaurant in Towson.
