Zeke’s Fish & Chips in Fort Worth, Texas

Fort Worth Stockyards

It was two days after Christmas in 2009 and a day before we leave Dallas for Thailand when my friend took me the famous Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas.  Prior to that visit to Stockyards, we had our delicious late lunch at Zeke’s Fish & Chips (click here to read the article).

The Fort Worth Stockyards is a National Historic District located in Fort Worth, Texas north of the central business district. The stockyards are a former livestock market which operated under various owners from 1866 and has many bars and nightclubs like Billy Bob’s Texas.

The Fort Worth Stockyards are the last standing stockyards in the United States. Some Fort Worth volunteers still run the cattle drives today. They do it so that people can see what it was like in the 1800s.

I have a couple of photos that I would to share you and to understand what I am talking about. Read More

Boracay Island, Philippines

  

Airfares and hotel room for five nights stay were booked for the forthcoming trip in Boracay, an Island in the Philippines that was voted for having the best beach in the world.  I’ve seen a lot of beaches (and b!tch*s) in Thailand like Krabi, but this will be my first time to see Boracay and the first time out on a beach in the Philippines for more than a decade, the last time was in Olongapo? Is it still safe to go there in Baloy?  Oh my, that was a long time ago.

I am not expecting too much about this trip so I won’t be disappointed, but let’s see what can the famous Boracay offers. As I am writing this article, twenty four more days to go and I’m getting excited. Well, I’m always excited with all my trips. For me, all my trips are Rest and Relaxation so no expectations (it rhymes huh).

I don’t know Boracay very well except from the comments and suggestions I got from friends who’ve been there and from the forums I have been reading for a while. But here is a factual information I got from Wikipedia, my reliable source.

Zeke’s Fish & Chips in Fort Worth, Texas

Before we went to Fort Worth Stockyard my friend and I went to Zeke’s Fish & Chips and had a late lunch.  He mentioned this couple of times that whenever I visit Fort Worth, he’ll take me to Zeke’s.  He did and oh man the Cod fish was awesome.  A Fort Worth visitor shouldn’t miss.

Don’t be disgusted with the shape and color of the food; they may be shaped like turd but wait until you taste it.
