Lechon @ Alfredos

On the last weekend, before going back to the mother land, our Spanish manager suggested a lunch party with a special cuisine in mind... Lechon de leche!

The plan was to have a lunch party at a private park with a very nice lagoon which quickly dissolved by unforecasted rain. Good thing that we had a plan b and went to Alfredo's very cozy house.

The initial plan was we will prepare the little pig (cerdito?) from start (live pig) to end (full stomach). :)) Thankfully this was not the case. A non squilling pig was already found in Jaime's car trunk, thanks to the Mesa de los rancho!

Unfortunately though, we did not have time to create the actual pit roast but fortunately we have the next best alternative, La Parilla!

Asado Night

The Manila Mafia in Uruguay got invited to some fun filled Asado Night(!!!) by the client. The invitation stated that the party would start at 8:00PM but being in Latin America for a good 6 months now we decided to arrive at the venue at around 10:00PM which apparently is still to early. :))

No sweat though as they were already preparing the different kinds of meat to be set in the parilla.

The fun lasted till 4:00AM for us but some still continued till the wee hour in the morning!

As usual, I'll stop writing and let the photos do the talking.

Patrimonio, Colonia

sun walk

During my last two visit in Colonia, the best place to hang out was in the Restaurante de Patrimonio.  
Part of the reason is the loading dock that you can go to to take this awesome photo above.  

Puperia D Los Farioles, Colonia

Windows Arriving in Colonia a few minutes before lunch, the first thing we set out for was look for something to eat!
After a few blocks of walking from the bus station to inner Colonia,  we  decided to eat at the first restaurant we saw. The "Puperia D Los Farioles".

El Salmon in mono.

El Salmon
Several reasons on why we go to El Salmon for lunch:
  • This is the nearest restaurant we can go to.
  • Has a nice "bar" atmosphere 
  • cheap! (UY 110-130)
  • we had a chance encounter with the Uruguayan president. Photo posted in the bar
  • One of the (only) five available places  
  • The owner looks like master pogi of dragon ball.

REVIEW: Panasonic Lumix LX5

Lumix LX5
The Lumix LX5 is the the highly anticipated replacement for the Panasonic Lumix LX3, skipping the LX4 altogether. I think it was because of the 2 year release difference. 

Please read on to see my take on this highly rated point and shoot for enthusiasts.

El Torreòn, Colonia

El Torreonnear the window.
The structure for El Torreòn is actually a tower (in tagalog, torre iyon. gets? :))).
Sadly I don't have any photo of the whole place. As I forgot and was a wee bit hungry at the time.
Note to self: Always take a picture of the outside venue.

Night and Day.

Woke up just in time to see two of God's wonderful creations. 
What better way to describe than by my version of haiku. 

Topeng's Hainaku
Moon up in the sky,
say goodbye another time.
Sun running after.

Uruguay vs Ghana Street Celebration

After a very unforgettable win of Uruguay against Ghana, Uruguay has won it's first match to stay in the world cup semis. So what better way to celebrate than to shout it out in the streets! 

A lot of dancing and celebrating! It was really a pretty awesome experience to jump and sing out loud even though I don't understand what I was singing. :))
