what’s app: HappyCow

What’s up!

Whats app!

This is just me sharing the apps that I use on my nifty little iPhone :)

As a vegetarian who travels a lot, we think its important to have a guide to help you along the way. As part of travel preps, we make it a point to research about the place, look for decent place to stay and a place to EAT, of course!  Before we find it so hard to look and to ask restaurants to cook for us  or if they can adjust their meal for vegs like us. Now, with the help of this app, we can easily find restos near our place. This app needs internet connection or gprs for it to work. You can use wi-fi or connect through your phone but fees may apply.

This is the welcome page. Look at that cute cow  :)

welcome page

iPhone detects your current location (look at that purple arrow) and it will point you to the nearest resto or you can put the address. Remember, fees will apply so if there’s wi-fi, better use it :p

This is the app in the App Store, you can buy it a very reasonable price of $2.99 (i think, i can’t remember) It’s a good app and whats cool about it is that if you noticed something wrong or you want to request for an update about the store you visit, you can easily click a button and it will send to the HappyCow admins for them to update. How cool is that :)

Do you have this app on your phone? What do you think?

LakbayGulay

…that’s what my hubby said during our travel. He thought of the name and i find it interesting and right for our lifestyle.

From now on,  we will name our travel adventures “LakbayGulay”.  Lakbay is travel in Filipino and Gulay is of course veggies. What do you think?

“The highs and lows of being vegetarians on the road, sight-seeing, being on a budget, enjoying the wonders of nature, meeting people and learning. We are here to document and  share it. ” This is what drives us to travel. Hope you will join us  again in our future travels.

As a kick-off for our first adventure, let me share some of the photos we took. We saw so many trees, walked the beach, swam in the beach, falls, climbed stairs, talked to strangers and a lot more. It opened our eyes and thanked God for such marvels.  We are so blessed that we have this.

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru

Do you recognize some of the places? Will tell you more about it in a few days!  :)

on the road

I have to apologize for not updating my blog. I’ve been very busy with work and we are now on the road somewhere north of our homeland.

I got too excited when my vegetarian boss came to visit last month which is a bit unplanned and I’m supposed to share it but I am still speechless about our experience and until now, my article is not done yet. I promise to share this don’t worry.

I will also share with you the places that we will visit during this trip. Also, I have many things to write about that I just learned from my veggie lovin blog friends. Thank you so much!

Ciao for now!!!

Oh My Gulay, Baguio City, PH

This is my first official entry for my RR segment. I will just keep it simple and based on the category I made.

Oh My Gulay

Sight: Located in  La Azotea Bldg along Session Road. We’re glad that our guesthouse is near this establishment and we can just walk for about 10 mins to be here. Very nice place.  Almost every one in Baguio knows this place based on our experience. I would say very naturesque and its like being on a different dimension.  Unique chairs and tables. Wonderful view. We also got to met the wife of the owner but I think she’s in a bad mood or must be busy because of the upcoming exhibit that will happen that evening.

Smell: Earthy smell, probably because of the plants inside this establishment. Refreshing. There’s even a small pond inside which is cool.

Taste: We enjoyed our food although it took us about 30 mins before we can even order. Funny thing is, this is a big place and yet there’s like 3 of 4 staff. Not sure if the other 3 are manning the kitchen as I am only seeing one staff asking for orders, delivering and cleaning table. I’m proud of her but , with this kind of  place and price, you deserve a fast service. We ordered the famous salad, some pasta, desserts and hot choco for me. The salad is very refreshing with the lovely dressing on it. :) As for the pasta, quite a large serving which made us full. The hot choco is not what I expected but I liked it. The dessert if a crepe which is a bit of a mediocre. Let me also say that at one point we were a bit upset with their serving. We ordered a veggie bread and we specifically asked for the eggs be removed and the waitress said yes. Lo and behold, when our order came you can see the eggs in it. We kindly asked the waitress to replace the sandwich but I doubt if they really replaced it. Considering the price of the food, we managed to eat it anyways as the eggs are gone. For what we ate (2 pasta, veggie sandwich, a salad, a crepe, hot choco and juice), we end up spending roughly P800 or $20 for both of us. Not bad or bad? :)

Touch: Very friendly waitress. She deserve a pat in the back. As for the other guys, I think they could offer some help by going the extra mile to help. Like this one guy who we saw, we asked him if he can clean our table and take our order, he hastily replied that he’s on break. Yeah! As if cleaning the table and giving us the menu would consume your break time.

Hear: I would recommend this site for more info. I use this every time or all the time I might say when we travel so might as well share it here. Oh My Gulay by HappyCow

Rate:  3. not too good and not too bad :)
