Flash floods !!!
It was raining house and lot ...
The rumble of thunder
Streaks of lightning
And a sudden downpour ...
Perfect ingredients for Metro Manila floods
And the predictable traffic mess that follows
I was stuckkkkkkkkkk ....
Fear of submersion
Possible engine stall
And an overloaded bladder ready to burst
I felt like I was in the China Olympic Games
Facing an obstacle course of water and vehicles
Maneuvering my way through the thick Friday payday gridlock
All of us jockeying for position and dominance in a river where once was an asphalt road
Then out of the corner of my eye - I caught sight of an oasis of restaurants
A perfect pit stop
I really needed a break ...
Legend Hongkong Seafood Restaurant has been around for several years
It has always been on the "recommended" list of many of my friends - as far as Chinese restaurants are concerned
Here - finally was my chance to try it out
Relieved that I had found a place to weather out the rain,
I entered a typically large (and noisy) Chinese restaurant ...
There were families eating and slurping their way through some very inviting dishes
"Iced tea please"
Let me see ...
Fish Lip SoupI always have difficulty spinning out an opinion about Chinese food because I really don't know what the "right" taste should be
Steamed Fish Fillet in Ginger and Onion
Salt and Pepper Spare Ribs
Yang Chow Fried Rice
I only know that I like it or that I don't
And this ...
I really liked
The rains abated
The floods slowly subsided
The food in front of me "disappeared"
And I headed home with a new favorite ....
As a matter of fact, I might be back next week
Flood or no flood
Join me ...
