TIPS: How to Place Order from Elars Lechon in Quezon Avenue

One week ago, Carmina had pointed to Mom Violy there is a place to order her lechon. Mom Violy said, let's go there one day. Carmina was able to bring Mom Violy to  Elars Lechon . The branch we went too was in Quezon Avenue which is close by. First step is to enter in their office facility to place your order.  The person inside will ask what you would like to order. Here is their price list: What they offer for Christmas in case you're interested in it. It is very easy to place your order those who are just walking in out of curiosity. Second Step: Go outside and hand in your order at the counter where you can see the lechon in front of you being chopped up on based on the weight you've made. The lechon will be placed in a box along with the lechon sauce inside an eco-bag. Mom Violy is very happy that she was able to buy her favorite Elars Lechon.

Persimmon Harvest in Baguio City, Philippines

People living in the Philippines always thought that every month of November when persimmon are in season. We can only purchase it coming from Korea.  Mom Violy found out it can purchase from Baguio Market_mnl  located every weekend inside Robinsons Magnolia at the ground floor. Baguio Market Manila have seasonal vegetables and fruits that are in season. The price of the persimmon is 60 pesos ($1.09) per piece.  Mom Violy said, there is no seed in the middle shown on the photo. Mom Violy said, it is sweet just like what you get from the United States. Those who are living in the Philippines you can purchase persimmon coming from Sagada. Since the climate is cold just in the United States, they are able to plant and harvest it there.

Carmina's Experience at EYC Watch Service Center inside Unimart

Carmina had her Cartier watch replaced with a new battery. The watch was given by Mom Violy. The last time Carmina had the battery replaced was year 2019. Did you know the battery of the watch expire?  The expiration is indicated on the package and the top of the battery. Did you know there are different types of battery for the watch?  It all depends on the brand maker on the watch. Are aware leaving a battery in your watch can ruin it for a long period?

During my visit Christian had open up my Cartier watch. He had replaced it with a Cartier battery. I was informed he will need to observe and see if the second hand will move to determine there is nothing wrong with it. Carmina asked Christian if she can take a video. She explained she is a blogger. He said it was alright. EYC Watch Service Center also do the fo

Upon exploring inside  Shangri-La Plaza  there was places Mom Violy was trying to recall when she last visited with her friends. Carmina has never been inside she had no clue what restaurants was inside. There were so many floors of restaurant in each area. The only was look at the directory for each level. Hunger strikes Mom Violy was unsure where she wanted to dine.  Mom Violy made a choice to dine inside TGI FRIDAYS American Bar and Grill. The theme of  TGI FRIDAYS  was Halloween. They gave out treats to those who had approached them in their costumes. It just reminded me when I was a kid once going inside the shopping mall during those days. Mom Violy decided to eat the Riblets with one choice of side dish. Mom Violy decided to get the garlic rice with corn. Carmina also ordered the same only difference I asked, for French fries with corn. The person who came with us ordered
