Ninong had another meeting so off to BHS we go. In case you don’t know, Bonifacio High Street is in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. It is a dog-friendly place.

We had lunch in a Singaporean resto where the food looked more like Chinese food. It is a good thing that Ninang ordered Hainanese Chicken for me. Wow, so great a taste.

It is also a good thing that we got the al fresco table in the corner. Unlike last week where our table was located in the center. This time we were not disturbed by passers by.

Barbie and Pipoy appeared relaxed especially during the meal. As I said, I had chicken but my siblings had their dog food. Maybe next time they will have a taste of that wonderful Hainanese Chicken.

There were plenty of dogs but most of the people notice us. Perhaps my white color and also of Barbie is really eye-catching. But Pipoy insists that people see him as very cute, hahaha.

When Ninong left, we strolled the length of BHS. Even at early afternoon, there were already lots of people and also pets.

Like before, we savored the cool air of the fountain. But before that, we had dessert in Hobbes and Landes, actually to avail of their airconditioning, hehehe.

Before 4 o’clock, Ateng and her family arrived. Ate Am-am took Pipoy’s leash while Barbie remains carried by Ninang. You know why? Barbie bites, hahaha, playfully though.

Ninong came back after 5 o’clock. We stayed on the grassy area for a pictorial and also to play. There were some tourists who wanted to have their picture taken with Barbie. I wonder why they don’t like to pose with me.

As the sun went down, we walked to the northern part. That’s a newly-renovated area looking like an odeon of the olden times. Many people were seated on the concrete grandstand although there was nothing to see.

A bit later, we went to Bon Chon. It’s a Korean chicken, cheap but delicious. Ate Am-am likes it. However, there was no al fresco area and pets were not allowed inside.

Ninong looked for a place to have dinner. Voila! There was the Kabisera ni Dencio. It’s a resto serving native dishes. Quite good, looks okay.

For dinner, Barbie and Pipoy had their dog food. And for me? Well, I was treated to a slab of crispy pata. So nice to dine out with food like that.
The new area in BHS

At around 9 o’clock, Ninong got the car and picked us up. Obviously, everyone was tired of walking, hahaha.

Before attending a weekend meeting in Makati, Ninong decided to bring us along so we can stroll in Boni Hi Street located inside BGC (Bonifacio Global City) in Taguig.

To make an allowance for the traffic, we left early so Ninong wouldn’t be late for his 2 pm appointment. Of course, our caretakers had to come with us because Barbie and Pipoy need to be taken care of.

We had lunch at Abe which serves Pampanga delicacies. Their kare-kare was good, according to Ninang, except that the bagoong was not cooked well. The crispy beef was also okay. But the price was not, hahaha.

While having lunch, Barbie kept on barking at the passing dogs while Pipoy barked at the people. Ninong didn’t feel good on the misbehaving puppies.

We dogs also had lunch in Abe. But I was not in the mood to eat so Liezl had to hand-feed me. Pipoy ate fast and Barbie was slow but she had finished her food.

When Ninong took a taxi for his meeting, we proceeded to Hobbes and Landes so we can rest a bit in the airconditioned store. It’s pet-friendly but it appeared crowded.

After finishing the dessert, Ninang decided to leave. The place didn’t appear to be pet-friendly anymore, especially the prices of their goods, hahaha.

The fountain area where the air was cool

We stayed near the fountain. It was nice because the water made the air cooler. Barbie and Pipoy were misbehaving most of the times so our caretakers were having a hard time pacifying them.

There were plenty of dogs in Boni Hi Street, most were strolling and gallivanting in the grassy area. But all dogs were in a leash.

Once in a while we would walk then come back to that spot near the fountain. After some time, Ninang felt hungry again so we went to Krispy Kreme. They had donuts which I didn’t like.

There was a white pekingese who looked like Barbie. They were barking at each other. After a while, Pipoy and Barbie fell asleep.

And before darkness fell, Ninong arrived. He was happy because the meeting was fruitful. And we were also happy and looking forward to our next dog’s day out.
