Started my day with a smile on my face since am going to be with good friends YStyle columnist and former EIC of Metro magazine Kat Holigores and designer Ivar Aseron (who I mentioned in my previous blog) for an exciting adventure. Arriving in Binondo around noon on a Sunday is such a treat. Void of large crowds and a multitude of vehicles, we had ourselves dropped off after the first bridge (there are two) and started to walk to our lunch destination-Happy Delicious Kitchen. My friend, Shu Uemura makeup artist Mickey See who then said the food was good and the resto had a specialty serving introduced me to the place. Nothing fancy or flashy, they offer a wide variety of authentic Chinese cuisine from vegetables to meat, fish, pork and desserts. Since then I kept coming back. I couldn't forget how delicious the food was (mind you no msg) and their famous 3 or 4 in 1 meals.
|Ladies who lunch|
|This beats any fastfood value meal treat|
|Enter the dragon|
|Not so busy Ongpin|
|These shoes are made for walking.|
|Faith is all around us|
|Fire burning with passion and hope.|
|Tradition of excellence.|
|Busy open kitchen.|

grew up watching her grandmother create these gastronomic delights.
