Aloy, I do not aim to gain 15 pounds in 2 days so I didn't go to many buffets, but I did have leftovers from Aria and Jonah's. AGAIN with the pizza!

Anne, you pinned down *exactly* how I feel about the beach. And, the salt water really stings my eyes!

love how you beautifully presented the salad :)

I too, don't like going to the beach. It's too hot and it gives you a sticky feeling. More so, I don't know how to swim. I love staring at it though ;)

enjoy your trip :)

Manggy's going to Bora! Yey! Do try to eat at Aria. Try their pizza (especially the one with salmon and pesto, and the one with thinly sliced parma ham -- I forgot the names!)... Also try their pasta (comfort food when it's too hot to frolic in the water). Other food you must try: Jonah's sandwiches and shakes, Seawind's barbecue buffet, drinks at Cocomangas! I'm so excited for you!!!

Michael, I originally used a red wine vinaigrette too, but I thought it was too flimsy :/ the olives sound like a good addition though!

Em, I would sooner take a long drive to the mountains of Baguio! Brrr!!! My kind of scene. But we shall see!

Marvin, I'll try to be nice in my assessment. WIll keep you posted, thanks!

I guess I'm fairly lucky to have access to oranges and asparagus nearly year-round where I'm at. The salad looks delicious.

My wife and I are actually planning a Boracay trip for next summer, so I can't wait to hear how your trip goes. I do like the beach though;)

I love the beach because it's away from work.

But my idea of a beach holiday is close to Ann's. Doing nothing close to the beach. I can't swim but I'd like to get in the water too.

2007-11-07T10:47:00.001-05:00

Looks good. I make a salad with oranges and asparagus, but instead of gorgonzola it has olives and pickled onions, and a sherry vinegar vinaigrette. Based on something from Fine Cooking years ago, if I remember right.

Hee hee dp, all the beach non-likers are coming out of the woodwork :)
I had to look up what a caipirinha was, Ann, sounds perfect!

2007-11-07T10:28:00.000-05:00

I'm not a beach person either. I like being near the beach, though. That is, on a nice verandah sipping a caiparinha. Your salad would be nice, too.

2007-11-07T09:46:00.000-05:00

Thanks, Patricia! Also a deterrent: I almost cannot swim. (there's an "almost" because I can float and stuff, it just takes me forever to get to where I want :)

2007-11-07T07:25:00.000-05:00

I can't believe I have finally found someone who hates the beach like I do - I have always felt like a freak or something!

That salad is so colorful and delicious, Manggy!

Thanks Graeme :) I take it you like swimming pools, then, haha :)

Frozen asparagus, I haven't seen, just canned. I imagine it would be awful. Frozen produce is very inconsistent here (ironically moreso than fresh)-- usually what you can find frozen are peas, carrots, corn, broccoli (mushy and gross), strawberries (mushy too). Can never find frozen artichokes and lima beans. Can sometimes find frozen raspberries :)

2007-11-07T03:43:00.000-05:00

Eew, I'm not too fond of the beach either - Too sandy.

Great looking salad - Do you get that God awful frozen asparagus too? It's actually worse than none at all.

2007-11-07T02:42:00.000-05:00

(raises hand) I do! I do! I do!!! :)
I'm also not very comfortable, as I am quite doughy :p

Dude! What kind of person hates the beach??

I bet if you lived in a cold place like I do, you'd be dreaming about the sun and beach everyday.

Enjoy your trip anyways!
