Tim_Ho_Wan_Pork_Bun

 After 48 years, okay fine mga 10 years lang, always passing by seeing the long queue and not having the patience nor the time to line up, we've finally managed to dine at Tim Ho Wan's first store in Manila, conveniently located at SM Fashion Hall, Megamall in Mandaluyong City.

Burger Brunch At Slammin’ Burgers

Slammin'_Burgers_1

  American food, particularly burgers and fries are my favorite. I even craved for well-done juicy, meaty & flavourful beef burger on both my pregnancies with the lil' GJGs. I guess for me burger is a comfort food that once consumed, everything feels better. Heehee. One no-school weekday,  I asked lil' Ms. GJG on a date. She gladly said yes so off we went to Greenhill Promenade and treated ourselves at Slammin' Mini Burgers & Fries & Dips. For burger lovers like me, I'm sure ... [ Read More ]

Il Ponticello Makati, New & Improved

New_Il_Ponticello_1

Il Ponticello has given me a few good memories back when I was single (and not really ready to mingle) as my modelling agency's office is just a stone's throw away from this not-so-secret Makati hang out place. It has always exuded a relax and steady vibe, a place you can go with your friends or co-workers after a hard day's work. A place where you don't need much words to get you through dinner, just good food, great music and wonderful people. It's been almost 7 years since I've last been ... [ Read More ]
