Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen

I didn't realize that Shangri-La Mall has a new wing.  Has it been that long since I last went there?  Well, yeah!  Hahaha... I'm a Trinoma/Landmark addict - since they're nearby.

When my Panget tells me that we were going to Shangri-La, I was a bit disappointed.  You see, there are only a few dining options and most of which, I did not like.  So when we were parking, I was delighted ti know that there was a new wing!  Yey!

The new wing, looked - new.  But its still quite empty.  Only a handful of stores and restaurants were open.  The choices were - Filipino food or Japanese.  And while looking at the menu, we decided to try Ikkoryu Rukuoka Ramen.

Apparently, this joint was a franchise from, where else - Fukuoka, Japan!  And when you enter, you'd see that the cooks were - Japanese (or at least they looked Japanese!  Hahaha.. Just kidding)  The staff was nice enough to introduce the restaurant and its history and most importantly, the staff knew the menu inside out.  She then gave us recommendations and I have to say, I'm impressed - she did very very well!

Here are the ramen that we ordered:

I wasn't able to take a picture of the Karaage dish since Kailee had to eat it immediately (she was hungry at that time)  I have this habit of asking Yaya if the dishes I get for her are good - so when I asked her I was surprised to see in her eyes that the food was really good!  She gave me a piece to try and true enough - it was good! :)  My Panget was also curious, so he tried (yes, I'm sure you are thinking - kawawa naman si Yaya, nakikishare pa sila sa food niya!  Hahaha!) and he too agreed that it was good!

The verdict is:  Very Good!

For a Ramen virgin like me (I say this because I HAVE NOT tried Ukokkei YET) I find this joint good.  The broth was good and really hot (I like my soups boiling hot), the chasiu was flavorful and has this sort of melt-in-your-mouth and is not malansa.  The noodles were perfectly chewy, its exactly how I wanted it.

So there, I liked it and my family liked it. So, yes - we will definitely come back! :)

Mercury Drugstore: No Return No Exchange

Mercury Drugstore has been the only drugstore in the country for years.  It was only recently that there were new players in the industry.  Before there flooding of The Generics Pharmacy - it was only in Mercury Drugstore that you can buy medicines.  I used to complain that there were so few Mercury Drugstores and that their business hours were only up to 8PM.  When I was younger I used to worry that if an emergency happens, we wouldn't be able to buy medicine elsewhere!  But then a few years ago, I was so happy to see that there are branches that are open 24 hours.  Gosh, FINALLY someone thought of doing that.  It was a long time coming.  A few years after - branches were mushrooming everywhere.  I applaud their desire to serve more people - I thought it was such a great move.  I mean for a pioneer - it was a long time coming. One of the things that I like with Mercury Drugstore is that they offer refunds and exchanges without question.  As long as you have the receipt with y

Breastfeeding Mama!

"Welcome to the Milk Mama Diaries Carnival (July). For this month, we join the National Nutrition Council - Department of Health in celebrating Nutrition Month with the theme "Isulong ang Breastfeeding - Tama, Sapat at EKsklusibo!" Participants will share their experiences in promoting breastfeeding or their tips on how breastfeeding should be promoted. Please scroll down to the end of this post and check out the other carnival participants." When I got pregnant, I knew instantly that I would be breastfeeding my baby.  My mom found it odd that I decided to breastfeed - this was because I grew up formula fed.  My twin brother and I were given formula since birth, there was no attempt whatsoever to breastfeed.  In fact my mom recounted that she was given medicine to stop the milk production.  My pedia, Dr. Joy Ty-Sy said that during my mom's time (when she had us) it was the boom of formulas, that it was the trend that time.  I grew up with formula, my c
