Chili's Burger Madness

 the Bacon Burger Just in the nick of time, my Panget and I made it to Chili's Burger Madness. What was supposed to only be a fast stopover at Starbucks to wash hands, ended with an almost midnight; snack of burgers! I've honestly never tried Chili's burgers and this was my first time.. And I should say - for a first time - the burgers were not bad at all!  The patties were huge and since it was only P118.00 a pop, it was such a steal!! One concern though - I think the servers get a little cranky towards midnight, they seem not to jolly about getting orders.  But then again, consider that they have been at it since lunch time, and I'm sure the lines were the longest!! That's why next time - catch the 'late midnight snacking crowd' so you won't fall in line too long!!

Travelling to Guangzhou & Hong Kong: Part 1

I’ve heard so many stories about the Canton Fair – that is huge, and attracts so many people. But I’ve actually never been there. Enter my Panget’s business trip. I was nervous to be honest, I mean – I’ve heard that you will walk your ass off! And I’ve never done that, even if I’ve been on a few shopping marathons years ago – I was scared. I was scared to the point where I actually bought a pair of rubber shoes! Yes, I really bought one – and thank goodness for the steal I got it for, thank you ROX for having the brand Ryka on sale!! We started the day early – reached the airport at 6:30am. What welcomed us at the counter was an advisory, saying that our flight was overbooked – and that any passenger who was willing to give up their seat/s will have the following gratuities: a) a CONFIRMED flight early in the afternoon b) a complimentary round trip ticket to Hong Kong c) P3,000.00 or hotel accommodation. My Panget and I thought about this – I mean, a complimentary trip to HK

Supermarket DI'scoveries: Egg Crater Noodle

What is every woman’s favorite past time? Shopping! There’s bag shopping, shoe shopping, clothes shopping, jewelry shopping, window shopping if the budget can’t permit, and grocery shopping! So, what do you think is my favorite category? Bag shopping, clothes shopping, shoe shopping – Nah! I feel like it’s a chore! Seriously, I am so lazy to shop for clothes, bags and shoes! My Panget is the more obsessive shopper between the two of us. Jewelry shopping? - I honestly do not know the kinds and the types, for me – they all look the same, real or fake! Hahaha.. I think we all know what it really is - it’s grocery shopping! I can spend hours and hours walking through the aisles of a supermarket. - literally hours! If time permits, I walk through each aisle, looking and scouting for new finds! That is why when I am overseas – I bring a camera with me, so I can take a photo of my newest discovery (even if it’s actually not a new discovery for some) The delight in seeing

Going on a trip!

Yes yes yes!! I'm going on a trip!!  To my beloved - China!! Too bad I won't get to visit Beijing - my second home.  Come to think of it, last I was there - I just finished my studies!  I can't believe that its been almost 8 years already!!  Has it been that long? Now, I think - my knowledge on the language will be tested.  I mean, no practice for 8 freaking years?  I smell a lot of senior moments and booboos!  Which reminds me, I think I need to refresh my Chinese speaking and listening skills (if there are any left!)  hahaha.... Image borrowed from THIS site Can you guess where I'll be going? By the way, I'll be going to the City of Lights right after!  I'm all so excited to taste authentic dimsum and of course - Din Tai Fung!  Can you imagine the food galore?  Oh my goodness!  I can't stop thinking about food!! :) The last trip I made to the City of Lights was the year before I got married, to which I won the tickets to!  And now will be th
