Bangketa Pares

IMG_2476

IMG_2475

I don't know why food in the sidewalk tastes so good, these food sold on streets are a part of my life and I really enjoyed eating them, I know the hazard of eating street food and I always make sure that they are clean and safe to eat. Street food sold back in the 80's and 90's are safe, unlike today, the preparation of food up to how the food is cook are having a shortcut, but I trust some local street vendors who are still in the process of making sure the food they are serving are clean and using almost good quality ingredients.

The Pares with rice, its like a beef with saucey beef broth are a popular street food. I usually eat this during the rainy season because the beef and its hot sauce keeps my body warm. Pares are usually sold in a Gotohan or Pareshan, but now they are sold on the street and much more better to sell than porridge, lugaw or goto. For a price of Php 35, you can already have a beef pares meal with fried rice. You can add more fried garlic to your rice and green leafy onion leaves to your beef pares. There's also an option if you want to add noodles to your beef pares, for an additional P5 or P10 pesos, your beef pares will be converted into a beef pares mami.

Bangketa Beef Pares and Mami are sold in a push cart, customizably by local street vendors, here in Bacoor, Cavite, I trust the vendor as they sell this everyday infront of the village where I live in. They are the best but only serve with less meat, but lots of beef sauce.

Whenever I ate street food, I always sign a waiver with dangerous bacteria and also pray to God that I will not get sick after a few days, so far, after eating the pares so many times, I can say that it is safe to eat it. I just hope that the beef they are serving are not from double dead cows.

Hang over from the Enchanted Halloween party

It's a tiring day for me after attending the kids Halloween party at Edsa Shangri La Hotel. Its our 1st time to attend a party as a family. 1st time for our 2 year old Ash to party the whole day and do trick or treating,  we chose to party in a hotel because there are lots of goodies and freebies for all attendees,  I lined up always in that Orbitz and snow ball drinks, Ash got lots of candies and chocolates from booths and establishment inside the hotel. Wife also in her nutcracker outfit and me as the minion from Despicable me movie, I decided to be a cartoon character and not be the barbarian.

 Here's our trick or treat line going to the bakeshop of the hotel

Here are the cute kiddies in costume!

Attending the Enchanted Halloween today

source
We're going to attend the Enchanted Halloween event for kids today in Edsa Shangri-La Hotel Manila. I'm glad that I went to the hotel yesterday to buy the tickets, the reservation we placed via phone is not really honored, but its so weird that they accepted our reservation few days ago when my wife called them. I told her not to inquire in Facebook, because the holder of the page is not helpful for our reservation, but then when I went to the events desk yesterday, our reservation didn't make it to the list..or there's really no reservation. We learned this trick from last year, book early, or buy your tickets early or book in advance just to avoid hassle. There are lots of "takaw tingin" people in Facebook, they will ask for reservation but they will not pay for it or will not be present on the day it self.  The hotel is strict and I know his kind of procedure, hehehehe.. good luck to some people later, I know it will be a riot, just like the New Year booking and buffet reservation every December 31.

Ash will be a little king, my wife will be a nutcracker princess and me will go out as a TROLL hahahahaha
