My village has lately become a foodies haven. Either the newly graduated chefs couldn’t find a job in more established restaurants, or they just rebelled against the thought of working for someone else. Who can blame them? The tuition fees for culinary schools are insanely high. Whatever the reason, its great for us Maginhawa-ites.
But more then the restaurants sprouting up left and right (not all of them good by the way but reviews will come later). It’s about a place that we call home.
Our village is part of the Diliman territory. And yes, just 5 minutes by tricycle ride from my place is Quezon City hall. While I cannot get to many of the government offices in 5 minutes time, these government offices can actually be found in the Diliman area.
