i ❤ dumaguete | i ❤ silliman

Dumaguete City is a small coastal town in Negros Oriental in the Philippines. The very first thing you see if you travel by boat is of course, Dumaguete's pier; but right beside it is THE Rizal Boulevard. It stretches to several blocks and a lot of Dumaguetenos jog there early in the morning and late in the afternoon. There are also a lot of restaurants, coffee shops and restobars and the place is alive from morning to night.

Let me show you the place...

Beautiful, non? Specially that third photo which looks like it came straight out of a cartoon, but was just really taken from my iPad.

Now a Dumaguete introduction would not be complete without talking about my alma mater, Silliman University. If you're reading this and thinking about attending a good university, don't hesitate to head straight to SU. It would be an experience like no other.

I could never really take pictures of all the places in Silliman as I was too busy reminiscing my college years, and pointing to baby boy where mommy used to study. I love how there's a lot of space here to walk around and it's soooo green! I never really appreciated it back then. 

We also dropped by the booth area where different student organizations, sororities, and fraternities had booths/tents laid out for founder's week. I wasn't able to take a lot of pictures, but we had a really great time. xx

Skydreamer Dines in Dumaguete: It's gotta be Shakey's!

So last Saturday, I had dinner with my family at Shakey's. It's also one of our favorite eat-out places in Dumaguete. We used to go to Pizza Hut more often, but they closed down so we usually eat here now. Anyway, Shakey's Dumaguete is located in Rizal Boulevard. You can opt to walk from Perdices Street (which is like the main city strip), ride a pedicab (they're actually motorcabs, but are called pedicabs in Dumaguete. I don't know why they're called that. I mean, the drivers don't pedal, they just uhm, anyway...), or take your car.

My mom, Jenn, and Deejay went to church earlier (for the anticipated mass), while hubby and I slept at home. We met up way later at Shakey's for dinner, then we went to Silliman University to do a quick tour on the booths. I miss Silliman. I miss college. I miss Founder's Day, and I miss my curfew! (Haha- NOT!)

So anyhow, back to Shakey's...We ordered spaghetti bolognese with garlic bread, fried chicken and mojos, and manager's pizza. We also ordered a pitcher of iced tea and a couple of chocolate shakes.

Their food was great as usual. I mean, it's not the best, but their food's always decent.

Here are some pictures:

crazy for shakey's
