I opened up a bottle of red wine yesterday. It is a Calvet de Calvet Cabernet Sauvignon (Vin De Pays D’OC). At first, I was taken aback by the taste. It’s woody, deep, spicy and really firm. I like it. But it isn’t the best I’ve tasted.

Earlier today (or technically yesterday) I watched Indiana Jones with Kim and Nina (too bad Pao Pei couldn’t make it) We enjoyed catching up, talking, being indecisive, and of course the food and the movie.

I haven’t watched the old Indiana Jones movies (or I did but I really cannot remember what happened), but I think this movie was pretty awesome. It has achieved its look (old-ish, but with a hint of freshness). I’m not that sure if the old fans liked this, but for me, it’s a good movie.

We ate at Zong’s for lunch, and we got the (clockwise from topmost left:) Prawn Ha Kao (Php 128), Yang Chow Fried Rice (Php 228), Lemon Chicken (Php 228) and the Spicy Singapore Style Fish Fillet (Php 328).

Their Ha Kao was firm and it held everything together well. It really tastes good, though I think it might be a little small. I have no qualms about their Yang Chow. The Lemon Chicken tasted more of lemon; it really overpowered the dish. And, my personal favorite is the fish, though it would be good if it were spicy. Although its name says it should be spicy, it wasn’t at all anywhere near it. Zong is one of my Chinese restaurant comfort food getaways? I don’t know if it’s just because of the food, but I suspect it’s also because of the overall presentation, service, plus the ambiance.
