-Dasmariñas Village, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines-


Enhanced Community Quarantine, Day 65 / Repax Day -10.

Although past experiences at this place had brought me close to banning it outright, desperate times call for desperate measures, so I gave it another shot.


After bringing home the package and leaving it on the kitchen counter, I dozed off briefly, waking up to find that the family had devoured most of the goodies.

I used the leftovers as a topping for an instant Japanese ramen.  It turned out pretty well.  The salty, smoky pork paired seamlessly with the soup, as if made for each other.  If I had more vegetables, it would’ve turned out great.


We have rescheduled our flight back to Korea for 31 May, which now leaves us 10 nights in the Philippines: the home stretch, literally.

The Katch Cave, wrapped and ready to move.
