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 you a…

JAPAN VISA for YAYA: A Guide on how to successfully get one

Happy New Year!

One thing I really like doing - filling up forms!  Yes, yes and yes!  I am weird that way but it's a good thing because since we all hold a Philippine Passport, that means forms need to get filled up - and I'm lucky because I willingly lovingly do them!

When we travel, we usually bring Yaya B along.  I keep getting asked why - well, we want Yaya B to experience traveling but most of all well, we need the extra help while traveling!  Our favorite place to go to is Japan - and when traveling to Japan, well - you need to get a visa!

So, why this post?  Well, I want to help out all those who are considering bringing their Yayas along to their trip - especially to Japan!  We found it very easy to apply for a visa for Yaya, as long as the requirements are complete.  Please make sure that all Yaya's requirements are AUTHENTIC!! You don't want to be black listed.  Remember that!

What are the requirements:
1)  a VALID Passport
Of course you need a passport right?…

Jeunesse Anion: 6 Foods that Trigger PMS

Whenever I am PMS-ing - I eat chips, have salty food (my weakness!) and sweets (cakes & ice cream)  I never knew they were triggers for PMS, hahaha!!

This is brought to you by Jeunesse Anion

Premenstrual Syndrome or PMS is a bunch of symptoms that even the strongest women would usually face several days before that time of the month. Feeling totally frazzled and waking up with a different kind of fatigue is a reality, a zit on the nose that wasn’t there a night before. And oh, those tender breasts plus the soreness and heaviness. Worst, you can’t stop thinking about that fudgy chocolate cake you saw on Instagram!
According to Anne Price, a Certified Holistic Health Coach, an average woman experiences PMS 450 times in her lifetime. While hormones play a part in these biological changes, there’s a way how to manage it by avoiding these foods that are likely to alleviate the symptoms.
