Quezon City - Garbage Collection FAIL!

We are victims of the flood. Our house, office and factory were flooded with thigh deep water during Ondoy. The day after the typhoon - my family, our helpers and workers cleaned out everything that was damaged. It was only a few days ago, that we fully cleared out the flood damage. All that were flooded and unusable - we put in sacks and brought them out for the garbage trucks to pick up. We waited. Garbage trucks passed by - but only got the small sacks. Telling us that the sacks are too heavy to carry. We then divided the sacks - into smaller sacks, even offering to help carry the sacks to the garbage trucks. But we were ignored and even told that the sacks were still heavy. A basurero even snickered saying ' Wala kasi kayong panigarilyo ' Why in the effing hell are we supposed to give ' panigarilyo ' to them when in fact it is their job to pick up garbage? Are we required to give them 'panigarilyo' just for them to do their jobs?? Is that eve

Nihonbashitei - Malate

I have finally tasted the BEST gyoza!! Interiors My Panget and I found it on NIHONBASHI TEI in Malate. The place looks fairly new and authentic. Why do I say authentic? Well, because there were a lot of Japanese diners!! They were coming in one after another - thus my Panget and I became curious! What kind of fare did they serve? We both hoped that it was authentic and very good! We were crossing our fingers, this place was recommended by my Panget's sister's boyfriend - Boggs. Upon entering, we were greeted by charming servers - they greeted us in unison. The place looked clean and very organized with servers positioned strategically on the floor - perhaps, to look at the needs of their clients. We were given a complimentary sidedish type of appetizer. It was squid with chili - and it tasted very very good! I was amazed, to be honest - because I don't fancy squid that is not fried! Hahaha.. But this tasted very good. The spices were mixed just perfect!

Disappointed with Dinelli

I've heard so many good things about Dinelli . Good selection, good food, good price and since it was near my area - good location as well! Last Saturday night - together with my new family, we dined there. I have to say - expectations were quite high. But I was greatly disappointed with the quality of service and food we got that night. We were seated on the second floor - and being the only diners there at the time we were seated, I was expecting a server to somehow come up and down to check on us for orders and some other things. But we didn't get that. Yes, the server took our orders - but right after that, we were somehow forgotten. Since there were no servers on our floor - we had to tap on the glass windows to get attention. This happened not once but four times. Our orders then were given one at a time with intervals of 10-15 minutes each. The Alio Oglio pasta was a bitter, the Seabass was relatively small and overcooked, the ribs - tasted bland and seemed
