I've watched this last Dec. 25, 2010 with my bf and his siblings. I like the RPG: Metanoia movie, it's a great improvement for our Philippine Animation movie industry. A little more tweak and we can compete internationally with other animation. The story is also great. They include our very own "larong pangkalye" like Piko, patentero, moro-moro, tumbang preso and a lot more. All my childhood memories flashback in my mind.. nakakamiss. The jeepneys, tricycles, electric fan and the bangus, rice, and un gulay made me smile.. ang galing.. Pinoy na Pinoy! The musical scoring is also great.. swak na swak! Let's support our very own Pinoy made animation. Kudos to the RPG: Metanoia team.. ang Astig nyo!
I went home around 9:30pm last Saturday. As I crossed the street between Serendra and Market Market, I saw a posting of " 20% off on All Breads after 9:00pm". So I went inside Icing's bakeshop and checked out the breads and cakes. I bought a Raisin loaf and Chocolate Muffins. Both breads are good. The muffin is much tastier when you heat it again in the microwave oven. yum! The photo below is Catcat posing with the muffin.
This was a dinner out bonding with my BF's ex-officemates. I arrived late due to traffic. They already finished eating their dinner. Ok now, let's talk about the foods that they ordered.
The Shrimper's Heaven. A mix of Coconut Shrimp, Chilly Shrimp, Fried Shrimp, Tempura Shrimp,Fries, and of course Dippin’ Sauces. It was yummy, especially the Chilly shrimp.We couldn't get enough of this so we ordered another one.
Bubba's Baked Seafood and Rice. Sorry, I wasn't able to taste it because I was late but it looks yummy.
The Calamari rings. I love this. I always ordered this every time I dine at Bubba gump.
The Pasta. My Bf ordered “...Of Course We Have Scampi!”. This was my first time to try it and I like it. Tender Shrimp sautéed with Capers in Lemon-Garlic, Butter, served over a bed of Linguini.Yumyum!
After the dinner we went to Starbucks to have some coffees. It was a great night.
Last December 11, 2010, me and my family went to Gerry's Grille to eat lunch. It's my Post Birthday Celebration. I planned this a month ago, I wanted to treat them out for a change. We went to Gerry's around 12PM. Good thing there were only a few people when we came in. We ordered Beef Kare-kare, Crispy Pata, Grilled Squid, Gerry's Friend Chicken, Chopsuey and Pitchers of Iced Tea.
The Beef Kare-kare tasted ok but I like the version of Max's Resto, much tastier and better in my opinion.
The Crispy Pata is delicioso! I noticed every member of my family asked for this one. This was served hot and crispy. And it's easy to slice/cut.
The Grilled Squid. One of my mom's requests and this is my bf's favorite too. Catcat said that this is Yummy.. and I agree.
The Chopsuey. We ordered this so we have veggies along side with the Beef Kare-kare and Crispy Pata. The veggies were fresh and crunchy, it was cooked rightly.
The Gerry's Fried Chicken. Sorry I forgot to take a photo of it. This one is a request from Catcat and Jajan. It comes with French Fries. The two kids enjoyed it. The chicken were crispy and tender. And because of that, Catcat consumed 2 cups of rice.
For the dessert, my bf brought a Strawberry Cheesecake from Contis. It's a birthday cake for me. =) The cake is lovely and sweet to look at. Everyone enjoyed eating this cake. especially the kids. Thank you howe for the cake! ~.~
Below is a photo of my family after the sumptuous lunch. Everyone has a great smiles! =)
I had two Cakes on my BIrthday last December 9, 2010. First, from Starbucks, I bought a slice of Cake and a Praline Mocha Frap for myself.. celebrating alone.. I'm just joking.. hahaha! :P
My first slice of Cake
Celebrating my Birthday @Starbucks
The second Cake is courtesy of my LCMS Team. We went to Balay ni Juan to celebrate with the teams' December Birthday Celebrants namely Leslie, Sir Jem, Jo, Tonichi, and me. It was also a Send-off Party for Alreen who will be joining a new company on the 16th of December. We had a great time at Balay ni Juan, lots of food and drink, singing and dancing.. it's like a mini -concert! I really had fun! Celebrating my birthday with you guys is great! Another memorable moment to cherish because it's not usual for me to celebrate my birthday with friends. I'm contented eating at home with my family. Thank you guys! ~.~
Also, I would like to thank my Howe, Friends and Teammates for helping me out to complete my Starbucks sticker card. I already got my very First Starbucks Planner in Silver. Thank you ulit!!!
It was a very tiring Sunday when we had dinner at Tokyo Cafe at Piazza. The place is very nice and comfy. The servers are A-Ok. I remember, there were only 4 tables occupied at that time.
The food. My niece Catcat wanted to eat chicken at first but I told her she already had chicken for lunch and merienda. Still she insisted to eat chicken. Ok fine. So I ordered Chicken Cheese Rolls and Pork Shogayaki for dinner. The Chicken Cheese Rolls were served hot and crispy. But when the hotness is gone.. nakakaumay na sya kainin. So it is best to consume it while it is hot.
Chicken Cheese Rolls
The Pork Shogayaki is yummy! The taste is a mix of ginger, sweetness, saltiness and sour with a pinch of wine taste. This was the first time Catcat tasted this, at first she jokingly said that she didn't like it. But she ate more of it than the Chicken Cheese Rolls. She ate 2 cups of rice because of that. She really has a big appetite.
The Dessert. I ordered the Mango Crepe with Ice cream. The presentation of it was so mouth watering. I love the mango ice cream but the mango fruits were a bit sour, so the kid just ate the crepe, and the ice cream with chocolate syrup instead.
Catcat enjoying the crepe.. ayaw mamigay! hmp!
Exploring Piazza, I saw this graffiti art wall. It was situated beside the Red Crab Resto. It was cute so we took some photos. Below is Catcat doing her pose.
We also saw these 3 wacky creatures. They're so cool and funny. By the way you need to give some money on their box to activate them. Or you can get and run with their money box, they'll run to you.. promise! That's what I did! hahaha! ^_^
Today is a very Special Day for me. I know I'm not a very good daughter to you, but despite of it You still accept and love me. Papa Jesus, I'm sincerely asking for Your forgiveness. I'm really sorry.
Also, Papa Jesus, I would like to Thank you for all the Lovely and Wonderful Gifts and Blessings You have given me: my Life and Health, my Family, my Howe, relatives and friends, my teammates and my managers, my Job and most especially for Your Love, Guidance and Support. You make me Shine! Thank you very much! You're the very Best Daddy a child like me could ever have! I Love You Papa Jesus! Amen.
This is my all time favorite at McDonald's. I love their Cheeseburger! I always order a Hot Fudge so I can dip my French Fries to it.. heaven goodness! My Boyfriend is not fond of eating at Mc Donald's, but I think he already used to it. I worked at McKinley Hills, all the restaurants in the vicinity are pricey. So every time when we can't decide where to eat and if we don't have enough money... he always asked me, "Saan mo gusto kumain? Ikaw na magdecide". Me, a tipid-mode girl, always answered "Sa mura lng.. tara McDonald's tayo!" with a big smile.
The first time I tasted Pork Char Siu was when I was in Singapore for vacation. It was so yummi! When I see this recipe from a flyer, I decided to try it out. I bought the ingredients and started cooking around 1am.. yes.. I'm still awake during those times. My version of Pork Char Siu is a bit oily maybe because I chose the wrong parts of a Pork. I'm no good in choosing the right ingredients. Singapore's Char Siu is much much better than mine.. ahahaha! I admit it, I'm not a good cook but I love to try cooking.
My pamangkin, Catcat, was so excited to taste my Pork Char Siu version. Thank God she liked it even though it's a bit oily. Next time will try to cook a chicken version of it.
