Angels Kitchen

My good friend Kath is the daughter of one of the owners - thus we usually dine here whenever we meet up. One thing I love about this resto is that they serve really yummy home cooked meals! They've just added more items to their menu! Yipee! There seems to be a fad for the Fish Casseroles. I think Cook Book Kitchen started it; my brother told me that Moksha also has a yummy fish casserole, and now Angel's Kitchen has their own version! Coolness!! :) I decided to order: Parmesan Fish with Cesar Dressing A closer look.. My Panget got this: Spareribs with XO Rice (he loved the XO Rice that he ordered another serving!) Yummy yummy rice! My BFF Kim had this: Beef Pot Roast Sel ordered the soup: Laksa Angel's Kitchen Connecticut Street, Greenhills Tel. 721-8822

Elle's Birthday..

The baby in my Panget's family turned a year old barely 2 weeks ago. I just want to share her birthday cake, the theme of the party was 'Under the Sea' and that's her big-ass cake!! There was one detail on the cake that floored me - it was the corals.... I never expected to see that much coral detail on the cake!! She also made this dessert buffet: Chef Sasa 0917-5339275

Gunshots in the middle of the night!!

I woke up to the sound of continuous gunshots - if memory serves me right - it was about 6 to 8 shots - fired one after another. It seemed like our area was under attack! I got scared and curious - thus, I looked outside my room to see what happened. Everything seemed normal. The dogs weren't barking like crazy, everything was quite and calm. So what happened? I wondered if I was just dreaming - but as I laid on bed again, I got a little paranoid. I prayed and asked to fall asleep once more since it was just 3:30am. This morning I asked my mom if she heard shots - she did! Even our helpers heard the shots and tried to look for where it came from. Our driver Allan said that he was also woken up with the shots and from where he was sleeping - it seemed like it was close by. He looked for where it came from - it came from across the river from our backyard. Apparently - the house across the river was owned by Alicia Alonzo - which in turn was the 'shooting' place o

My Pepper Lunch experience..

Okay, let's be honest here.. When my Panget and I tried Sizzling Pepper Steak at Trinoma last year, we weren't impressed - at all. The food was well, it was just alright and the fact that you needed to cook it yourself - well, that was such a turn off to my Panget. He always tells me - why pay for food that you yourself will cook! Hahaha.. I partially agree, but I guess that's the fun in it right?! Cooking your own meal at a restaurant! So when I read from Chuvaness ' blog last year that she's opening the original Pepper Lunch here. I got curious - so what's the difference, right? I mean seriously - they both have the same idea - and practically the same name too!! I really wanted to try it out! Chicke n Pepper Rice Php235.00 comes with a FREE drink! Last Wednesday - I was able to try the place out with fellow bloggers Sophie , Phoebe , JV , Juned , Fran and AJ . We all loved Pepper Lunch! Can you see the crushed pepper? I can't get enough! I just had

Ms. Vance Collona

One of the if not the BEST customer service representative I've spoken to in years! and she's from the Cebu Pacific hotline! 70-20-888 The person I spoke before her dropped my call when I asked for her name. Bad move! And so when I called back - it was Ms. Vance Collona who took my call and assisted me. She told me firs and foremost that they're NOT allowed to drop their calls! She was very patient, very helpful and very eager to finish the transaction! She's good at what she does! She even helped me track down the CSR I spoke to who dropped the call! Now, that's great customer service! I couldn't believe that she was so willing to help me! Most of the CSR I spoke to help only to a certain extent! But Ms. Vance Collona - she exceeded my expectations! Mabuhay ka Vance !! I just hope I got your name right! And because of the superb customer service given me - you deserve a SPOT here in my blog! Good work girl! It's people like you that

Buy 1 Get 1 FREE!!

My BFF KI was looking for a nice light everyday bag - she said she saw one online at Schu's website and was hoping that it was available here in Manila.. Lo and Behold when we were about to enter Schu - Trinoma's store - there was a sign that said : BUY 1 GET 1 FREE!! I was immediately taken!  I am so in love with shoes!  And so I scouted for my first pair - and found one in less than 2 minutes!  The second pair was rather harder to find - it took me more than 20 minutes!  But man, was it worth it!  For Php900.00 a pop - that's not bad!  Not bad at all!! I was just surfing and found that Schu has a multiply site - and indeed - the promo is available on all branches!   Happy shoe shopping gals and guys!  ( guys, it the perfect time to 'gift' shop!! ) By the way - it's available for both shoes and bags!!

Chateau Hestia

When going to Tagaytay - it's almost always that we dine at Antonio's - I gather since we travel far and long (yes, it's a long travel for me!) we deserve to treat ourselves with good quality food. And so when my Panget told me that we were having Sunday lunch at Tagaytay - I immediately assumed Antonio's. But I was wrong - we were going to a new place called Chateau Hestia. I searched the blog I go to for food - and when I hit the search button. I found an entry! Coolness! At least there's one person who's been there! Since it was fairly new - I was a bit excited! To be very honest, when going to this place - PRINT A MAP! Hahaha.. We were almost lost going there - because of the heavy rains - thus not seeing the street signs! But we got there - and when we got there - the place was impressive. It was small and very private. The walkway going to the dining area was quite nice actually - but not while it's raining! The welcoming area was quite co

Buon Giorno

This was taken last 2006 when I went to Tagaytay I heard from Sophie and Oliver that Buon Giorno opened a branch in Mandaluyong - to be honest, I was skeptical. Two years ago, I wasn't impressed with their food when I tried it with my parents. The service actually sucked big time. The only thing I remember was that their tarragon tea was good - the bad part was that there was a huge fly that was floating in my mom's teacup! Yucky! So anyway, yesterday - my Panget wanted to dine in a new place. Something different. I asked Sophie and she suggested we try Buon Giorno. And we did! I never thought that there was an area for resto in the Puregold Shaw compound. Maybe because I haven't been in the area for a long time! It took us a while to find the resto because of the rains! And when we did - we opted to dine al fresco - sitting on their famous Opium Bed. The weather was perfect despite the rains! We ordered a pasta dish for me, a 2-in-1 pizza, and the prime rib for

H&M coming to Manila?

Are they? or Aren't they?! Heard this through the grapevine... And guess who's bringing them in?! Store Specialist Inc.? Nope! Cinderella Group? Nope! Bench Group? Nope! Ayalas? Nope! Gokongweis? Nope! The SM Group? You got it! Hahaha.. I just hope they maintain it being affordable! Unlike that of Gap! Have you seen their prices?! They're hilariously expensive!!

Moonlight and Sandy's Pizza

Moonlight I've been intrigued with Moonlight since I saw an episode on local TV one Friday. I immediately consulted my cyber pal and TV Show addict Mindy about it. She said that the show was new and it started slow. I asked my Panget to DL for me - he then told me to ask our friend Andy (as he has fast internet connection!) But as it turns out - we never got to see him (to transfer the files) luckily, my Panget's brother downloaded it already! Yeha!! Last night - I saw 2 episodes. So far, I'm liking it. Not loving it, but just liking it. There are some boring parts but on the other hand, there were little (just a little) gore! Hahaha... Sandy's Pizza It was during the May 1 holiday that I saw this being featured at a local morning TV show. It piqued my fancy because I so love pizzas! I am such a Pizza lover - that I can eat it everyday! At the moment, I am loving Brooklyn Pizza! I love the crust and the toppings! Yesterday, I told my mom about this pizza pla
