Accident and First Aid Kit at Home

Many parents says raising a child is hard but for me raising a parent is harder. No matter how many times you told your mother that she is not allowed to eat this and that, and not to do this and that. It is to no avail she will eat and do what she want so yesterday she fell and slid in our stairs. Good thing she didn’t hit her head and broke only a toe nails and since my father brought the first-aid kit to work I practically chew young moringa leaves so I could stop the bleeding in her feet.

So this is what I got on my shopping bag last night, petroleum jelly to treat minor burns, antibacterial ointment for cuts and wounds, pau liniment for muscle and back pains (she need to get a massage now since she is complaining of sore body), betadine to treat fresh wounds, basically they are all for first aid. There goes a part of my funds for Saturday, I am planning to visit a diagnostic center on the weekend to have a medical check-up eh but I guess my health can wait. 💉

Oh well, my sister told our mother to be careful and not to let me jump out of my chair again, because I might die first before her due to high blood or shock on seeing her doing gymnast moves in the stairs.

Good thing my blood pressure is normal these days, thanks to regular intake of pineapple juice. 🍍

Mother’s Day Dinner at Mac’s Chicken & Barbecue Haus

To celebrate mother’s day we decided to dine out and with my mother’s idea we ate dinner at  Mac’s Chicken & Barbecue Haus.  Well, their food catches my mother’s taste buds and she found their menu inexpensive. She couldn’t get used to their chicken barbecue as well as sour soup (we’ve been ordering take-out on their sour soup menu).  I have already disagree on her restaurant choice but since she’s paying and not me I didn’t win where to eat.

Unlike with our prior experience someone entertained us right away and because we knew the drill we seated in the four person table even though the whole place was empty (we are only four at this time my grandma wasn’t with us).  We had our order, we didn’t order much because it was not day time, my mother and I chooses their chicken barbecue again while my sister and our father chooses their pork barbecue.

Believed it or not, a server came to our table while we are waiting  for our order. She instructed us to move to another table, this time to a spacious one. Guess, in which table? Yes, it was on the table we are asked to vacate last time. It wasn’t a mere coincidence isn’t it?

This time, our orders was served to us in twenty minutes, my mother and I enjoyed our chicken but there is someone complaining that the meat he ordered is a bit hard to chew but as expected we ordered extra rice making us all full and contrary to last time I left tip on their tip jar,  %% of what we have eaten.

Good Friday Dinner at BAIP’s Coffee Yard

It was the holy week and after we watch the holy procession in town during the late afternoon, we decided to dine out at BAIP’s Coffee Yard located at the nearby barangay. The coffee yard is famous with their appetizing food and colorful milk shakes.

When we came in at the front area where there are about two-three tables, there was no server around and it seems the place is a bit full (they still have room at the back but you can’t fully seen it upfront),  someone who knew my father offer their table since he said they are about to finish. We doesn’t know if we should just barge inside without the servers knowing, because we might not be seen right away when the place is busy.

In most restaurants I have been too locally and abroad, most restaurant has an usherette who welcome and guide their customers where to sit (which is very helpful for first time customers who doesn’t know how the restaurant works like), and even if they doesn’t have one there is someone from the counter/servers who will do the job or very smarty to do so but I guess everyone is busy. Gladly, one server tending/bringing food into a customer’s table went out and she saw us stalling, she guided to us to a vacant table which is just vacated at the back yard.  There are other two other families waiting for their meal when we arrived, we are given their huge menu board, when my mother saw the prices she feels like walking out (hahaha).

We ordered the BAIP’s Group Meal which consists of six rices, six pieces fried chicken, one sisig platter, one pancit and a mason drink for ₱795 (this group meal is actually good for six persons) and three jar of milkshakes (Chocoloco, Rocky Road and Oreo) for ₱145 each and since sweet drinks isn’t allowed for my mother she got Cherry Frozen Iced Tea ₱90 for herself.

The food was served in about thirty minutes right after our neighbor table got their food, as we can hear from them they have been there for so long and their food wasn’t served yet too. Anyway, their food was great, the chicken were juicy and the pancit was flavorful but their sisig is just in between and their milkshakes were worth trying for, they’re very stylish and decorative. We are quite full on our meal that my mother has to take-out out the left-over chicken, I guess the milkshakes made us full.

If you are looking for a good place which is out of Odiongan town, BAIP’s Coffee Yard is must visit. It is  located at Brgy. Poctoy, Odiongan Romblon just beside Poctoy Elementary School and Bracelli School. It started as a simple coffee shop in a yard, but as of today their coffee shop/restaurant  has been upgraded to bigger and larger food place that can accommodate more people, when we visited the second floor wasn’t in used.

Odiongan Town Fiesta: Eating Lunch at Mac’s Chicken & Barbecue Haus

The town parade for Kanidugan Festival is one of the must see during Odiongan Town Fiesta and as expected many Odionganons flocked to town to see it. When we arrived in town there were already many people waiting for the parade and the main road wasn’t passable anymore. The parade have already started so we decided to see it where we are rather than finding a new spot.

Anyway, instead of watching the ground demonstration we have decided to eat lunch first because our grandma who is with us to watch the festival was already feeling dizzy, I think she was overwhelmed by the noise and the number of people around her.

Compare to last year where we ate at Laszaji Grill on Town Fiesta we decided to try the food at Mac’s Chicken & Barbecue Haus. This Barbecue house wasn’t a new one in town, it was been here for a few years already but we never tried their restaurant thinking their food is expensive just by looking how the place looks like.

When we came in, there were not many people around there are many vacant tables. The servers who are standing welcoming the group ahead of us just looked at us as we enter, and since maybe we are adamant where to sit someone finally asked if we are not included the group, we replied no and that was the only time we are given attention.

We seated on the table at the front corner near the bar since there was fan in there and it is spacious for us. We are given their menu and contrary to our belief that food is expensive on this restaurant it was actually cheaper than we could imagine.  We ordered their five orders of their chicken barbecue, a bowl of shrimp sour soup, a platter of chopsuey and fruit salads for dessert. The service is a bit slow, it took forty five minutes before our food was served, well at least the bottled water I have ordered were given first.

As we are waiting for our order, one server asked us to move to a new table (we are currently seated in a six or eight person table) saying that there might be other people who will come in. I was very disappointed, we are five people and she moved us to four person table when there are plenty of vacant table around since the place was spacious.

As what was expected when our orders arrived after waiting it for so long the table was too small to hold our food, our movement when eating is limited.  What’s more ironic there was only two group who came until we finishes eating our food and the table we are asked to be vacated has been empty until we finished eating and left the restaurant, so imagine how bad I feel being kicked out to a smaller table (lol).

Anyway, it was a good thing that their food wasn’t bad at all just  a little burn because if it was bad I’ll be sulking until we went out and I will never come back at this restaurant again. Their chicken barbecue was only for ₱99 with rice, coleslaw, sauce and with a bottle of small coke.

Unlike, many other restaurants you have to pay at the counter when you asked for your bill.  My sister pointed out the tip jar since she knew I have the habit of doing it but since I was disappointed I didn’t bother at all.

Well, if you are looking for a silent and spacious place to dine in with your family you can try Mac’s Chicken & Barbecue Haus and yes they have wide selection of food other than the chicken barbecue.  They also have “Eat all You Can” event during Sunday evening for only ₱199.
