Corner showcase

Back in September of last year, I featured the lovely carved wood screen of Adarna Food and Culture, a restaurant that specializes in Filipino historical recipes. Every nook and cranny is filled with heirloom home accent pieces. The lamp and table would have blended well with the interior design of my maternal grandmother's house. I question the black rotary dial phone though—until the early 1980s, our phone was just like that.

Interesting place to visit. I will make a mental note to visit it next time I'm home. You're right, I remember that rotary dial phone too back in the 80s! Lovely photo, Hilda! :)

It's been a while since I've seen a phone like that. This looks like a very comfortable place to relax and enjoy a good meal.

Ah yes, rotary phones. My index finger is glad they have gone

Beautiful shot, Hilda. I do remember those dial phones - not so long ago, it seems. That's the trouble with so-called "antiques." Most antiques today are things that I grew up with! Yikes!

JM:
Yes, she's back — in congress. And two of their three children too, the son a senator and the older daughter a provincial governor. My country has a very, very short memory.
