JOEds Lutong Hapon, Japanese Food for the Cebuanos

Had another satisfying dinner tonight in one of our favorite restaurant JOEd's Lutong Hapon  now located in their new place Enmore Residence, Jose Avila St. Capitol Cebu City just beside the Sacred Heart School for Girls.  I had my favorite Pork Carbi while my partner had the Beef Teriyaki. Lutong Hapon as it is commonly called offers affordable Japanese food to its clients, allowing ordinary people like us to taste Japanese food which we know are expensive. 

I still remember when we had our first taste of Katsudon and Karegodon back in Mabolo it was indeed a "Carenderia Lutong Hapon".  It was far from being a called a restaurant then.  After that first experience, we came to love this restaurant because of the various choices, the excitement we get every time we get to taste another menu, the cool staffs who greets you in chorus as you step in the door and the chance to take home the chopsticks(hehehe) so I can practice at home.

For the price and the quality of food and service, I say this ones a must try in Cebu.

Money, money, money...makes the world go round.

If I have the money like Jingky Pacquiao, I would have taken my breakfast in Thailand, lunch in Japan and dinner in Paris(wishful thinking!). Unfortunately, I don't have "Manny" but God permits I see myself taking my pictures on those places.  On the positive side, I can visit our own domestic destinations with airline promos, free ticket from my sister(hehehe) and good weather.

When we think of traveling, it's synonymous to MONEY.  However, I always believe that going to new places doesn't need to be expensive.  You can always find ways to enjoy and not spend to much.  Watch out for airline promos, look for affordable accommodations, scour for affordable but good food, pack your own food or look for a friend in that place to tour you around and treat you out(saves a lot!).

In my blog, I will share to you our tricks and tips of our real experiences to guide you in your plans. No sugar coating.

Finally! I'm blogging.

Last night my niece was asking me to help her in her assignment that is to make a story of the monkey and the turtle fighting over the banana tree.  Who doesn't know about the story of the monkey and the turtle, right? Suddenly, the smell of writing again came to my senses and I realized I indeed missed writing.

Back in elementary and high school days, I 've always love to read and write.  When I was in college and at present, I'm still reading and writing...computer programs. Since then, I missed those times when I lay in the couch or in my bed with a good book and doze off to sleep with a book in my face.  Anyway, times have past and things have changed and it might have been quite a long time since I was able to finish a book (yeah, I tried to start reading E-books but it  seems I can't seem to finish one, hehehe) but I've been able to do things I wasn't able to do when I was a teen and that is...to travel.

I've always been fascinated with the thrill and the excitement of going to new places. I love to learn the lifestyle, the beauty, the people, the culture and please don't forget the food of different places. I stand by this motto of mine "travel if you can and while you can". "You can" if you have the money, the time, the right timing and good company. "While you can", if you have good health.  If you have this, travel now.

Finally, indeed this is my first blog.
