Close to Greens

It’s been what, 3 years since I successfully made my way up that hill at Caleruega. I’m glad I was able to repeat that feat last weekend. Not an outdoorsy person here, so that’s a big achievement. The less-than-three-minutes’ hike made me sweat buckets, but it was enjoyable and exciting once I reached the top. I think I must have lost a pound with the long walk and the struggle to the top and back to lower ground.

Nobody brings an umbrella while climbing steep slopes, only me. And oh, a bottle of Coke. I belted Miley Cyrus’s “The Climb” after I slumped on the grass. Okay, I am just kidding. Nobody does that, for sure.

The last time I was there, there was no chapel on the hill, but some things still remain from my last visit. Like these koi ponds with these irresistible, plump fishies! So cute!

We headed to Sonya’s Garden after hearing Mass. I remember visiting the place some years ago, but it was the first time I was able to sample what they have to offer.

If this was offered to me several years ago, I would’ve skipped the meal and went on with the pasta. But thanks to work, I can try different dishes and flavors without having to order it. I take a chance whenever I see something different on a buffet spread, or a dish served to us by resto owners, and that’s the time when I decide if I would consider eating it again. If I don’t like it, then I won’t dare order whatever it is and that at least, I know what it tastes like. The best thing about trying is that I was able to discover and add more items to my favorites’ list. In short, I now eat greens. Green, leafy veggies, that is.

The Sonya’s Super Secret Salad Dressing is insanely good, but seeing the price tag for a bottle to take home lessened my liking for it. I should really study culinary or something related to be able to recreate everything I want. No more pics of what came after the salad… alam na!

P.S.

I think I am having a fascination towards catching an insect “eating.” Quite similar to this photo.
