Hello & Goodbye Magnum Manila

MagnumManila_JackieGo

For someone who loves sweets, I admit I have never tried Magnum Manila until recently. I know, I know I suck at being a lover of sweets but every time we're at SM Aura, the queue is always long & buying a create-your-own Magnum doesn't give you a seat inside for dine-in are for those who would order their savoury treats. Since I really wanted to try Magnum, I did my errands one weekday at SM Aura with my lil' GJGs. So finally after 48 years, we were able to try Magnum Cafe. The lights ... [ Read More ]

So you could imagine his delight when we visited Highlands Prime Steakhouse last week as a pre-Father's Day treat to him. He even had "light breakfast" that day so he can prepare his tummy for lunch. Ha! Highlands Prime Steakhouse is located at Estancia Mall, Capital Commons, making it more accessible to all the steak lovers and ... [ Read More ]

PlanetGrapes_ShangriLa

When it comes to booze and spirits, I'm a hard drink kinda-gal. I never liked beer because I always feel full and my tummy acts weird with all the fizzle it gives. Vodka, tequila and wine- now these are my alcohol trifecta. While I find vodka and tequila one and the same, it is different when it comes to wine. It's got more than a handful of variants to choose from. This I don't mind, as Mr. GJG & I make it appoint to enjoy wine from time to time. It's our way of distressing after a long ... [ Read More ]
