FEA Students’ and Teachers’ Dinner Party

Once in while student together with teachers go out to have fun! After studying and working hard, what we all need is a time to relax and let it loose!

In the  picture below, it this was a dinner celebrating a goodbye. In Firstwellness English Academy, we often have farewell parties usually in the form or dinner. And yes it is usually buffet so everybody can pig out and become bloated. After all, that is what buffet is for.

PINO RESTAURANT

On this night, we went to PINO RESTAURANT. Pino restaurant is a Filipino Restaurant which serves authentic Filipino food. Recently, it ranked no. 8 the Best Restaurant in Cebu . They have wide choices of beef, pork, fish, vegetables,  and oysters. Their desserts are  also delicious but maybe for Japanese it might be something they have not tasted! They serve “maja” which is a sweet jelly-like cake made from coconut’s milk and flour, “kunchinta” which is also made from coconut’s milk, flour and sugar; and they also serve fresh fruits and cakes.  So… yummy! (I kept going back to the dessert area. hahaha)

The restaurants facilities are also very clean. The service is fast and the waiters are very accommodating here. (By the way, the GM is my brother so that’s why. hahaha) But its honestly clean and the staff is prompt to give you what you asked. They are also very polite from the moment we entered ’till we left. They were always smiling. (I guess my brother trained them to do that all the time. hahahah Smile all the time!)

AFTER DINNER ACTIVITIES

After eating and eating and eating, we continued to eat. Hahaha! Until our stomach asked our mouth “Are you crazy?”. But our mouths remained chewing. So after all the eating, talking, and picture taking, we went to a Karaoke. We stayed up late that night. We partied and sang like there is no tomorrow. Teachers and students were drinking and laughing and singing. It was a lot of fun! FEA people went crazy over dancing with outrageous steps from modern to very old traditional Japanese steps – like planting rice or something like that.

(I only have few picture because I took most of the pictures here. Next time, I wont take pictures anymore. 🙂

The good thing about with FEA students and teachers is that no matter how hard we party, respect and decency is always intact. This is something other schools do not possess. 🙂

Perhaps next week there will be another dinner-party again with students and teachers. So it is really difficult to be on diet. But I guess that best way is to dance non-stop for 3 hours after eating.  Why not?

Grand Majestic Chinese Restaurant

Grand Majestic Chinese Restaurant

This is a late upload. Last Christmas FEA teachers and staff together with the student had our first Christmas party at Grand Majestic. Yes, we all enjoyed the sumptuous food buffet! One thing you need to bear in mind is that Filipinos love buffet! We just simply enjoy the beauty of eating! So we need to double our exercise.

Food

Grand Majestic Restaurant is a serves fushion food but mainly Chinese inspired with a touch of Filipino taste. I personally think this is one of the best buffet in Cebu City. Their price is also reasonable at 600 plus without drink. It is very reasonable relative to how much variety of food you can choose. I suggest do go there without eating your lunch if you’ll have dinner! J

There is wide selection of food from appetizers to the main course desserts. For the main course, there’s shrimp, siomai, noodles, rice and their famous PEKING DUCK. I am not so familiar with what Pecking Duck is but they serve it and for me, it tastes just ordinary. But I see many people going back and forth to the Pecking duck section and they eat a lot of it! For the desserts they have ice cream – gelato specifically. There is a big difference: Ice cream uses cream while Gelato uses milk. So Gelato is so much tastier. This is heaven for ice cream lovers for me! There are also fresh fruits and salads. Good for vegetarian and those on diet and to those who attempt to go on diet but failed… This might be a big help. J

Rooms

Grand Majestic also has private rooms for special functions so man company parties and school events are catered here. They have small rooms good for 50 people to 100 and big events like wedding can also be catered at the Grand Ballroom. I remember when I was in highschool we had our Junior and Senior Prom here.

Location

The restaurant is located near Ayala Mall so all taxi drivers know this place. It is very convenient to go there.

Reservation

They do accept advance reservation unlike other restaurants.  Few restaurants do not accept reservation especially if that restaurant is quite popular. Perhaps it is because they have bigger space than other restaurants in the city. They have big round tables which can occupy 12 people. Nice for big groups!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Eat, Drink and Be Happy!

In eating a buffet, try everything in small portions then refill what’s delicious! 🙂

Food Adventure at 10 Dove Street

Last Friday, my neighbor and I decided to try our luck at the hip restaurant — 10 DOVE STREET. The last time we went there, they had their last call for orders and so we were not able to satisfy our craving.  😦

Upon arriving, all seats were occupied and we are asked to wait outside. The place was small. It’s like a neighborhood restaurant.  Technically, the restaurant is located in a residential village named STO. NINO VILLAGE, 10 Dove Street is the exact address of the owner’s house. The space for the restaurant is connected to the owner’s house. It is rather a tiny space which can occupy about 25 people since only it has about 5 tables. Quite small but this place is popular and it is visited by most people most of them are frequent costumers.

The reason for this is their reasonable price. The complete course is only for 200 pesos set. It includes 1 soup/1 sandwich/1 salad/1 cake  – everything of your choice. You also wouldn’t go bankrupt of the drinks which is priced at 30 pesos to 50 pesos only. Probably their price are so cheap because they do not pay any rent.

I took many pictures. I felt like I have to because it was not easy waiting outside.. some mosquitoes were already having dinner on my skin! 😛 I would be very very sad if I would not be able to eat on that night because it was our second attempt! It would be so frustrating to spend time going to the same restaurant and going home hungry… 😦  When we saw the couples eating inside stood up, we immediately rushed to the door. We could not afford to lose that seat to anyone else. Upon entering, the couple smiled at me and the gentleman said jokingly “I had to finish quickly and eat fast so you can have your dinner… “.  That was so nice of them!!! I said “Thank you” with very very very big smile. In my mind I said “Good man. Kind man.”

We ordered with much excitement. The story ends with our tummies exploding with fullness! Burp! Here are the pictures below:

So Elegant yet Not Expensive!

Yummy!

The best thing about this is inside the lychee — there’s a sweet chunk of pineapple! I recommend this!

Delicious!

This isn’t so sweet at all..
