Globalart Philippines

Can you believe that my 7 year old Kailee made that?  No prior lesson before taking our current one with #GlobalartPhilippines.  I can't even begin to describe the pride I have in my heart.  I'm in awe, I still can't believe it.  I am currently just staring at it, looking silly because of the huge smile I have one.  I am beyond impressed.  And to think, this is only her third class.  AMAZING, right? Even before I had Kailee, I have heard of Globalart from friends.  I knew it had one branch, the one in Ortigas, Greenhills - and I knew of some friends who would go all the way to Greenhills just to have their kids join their classes.  Of course, at that time - I wasn't interested as I didn't have kids yet.  But for the past year, Kailee has been showing interest in drawing.  She would use up all of my bond paper at home drawing all sorts of things.  I would buy her crayons and paint and she would just do what she felt like doing.  If you can see our bedroo

Pizza Hut Horrors: Late pizza + hair STUCK inside the pizza + bad customer service

Yes, I placed an order and was told that the pizza would arrive in 45 minutes.  To be honest, I assumed that Pizza Hut delivers at 30minutes or less.  Have I not ordered from them a long time for the mechanics to change?  Anyhoo, what am I to do right?  So I agreed - the order will be arriving at 5:16pm, the CSR said. Usually, Pizza Hut delivers earlier than expected - but at 5:15pm, there was no sign of any delivery person from Pizza Hut.  This made me call the hotline - 911-1111 to report.  So I gave my phone number and informed them that the pizza has not arrived.  According to the one I spoke to, it was still 5:15pm, but she will be making a report (I found it odd that she would tell me the time, as of course - I knew what I was doing).  So then she apologizes for the *inconvenience*, I asked her - that's it?  Just a sorry and to wait?  She then put the call on hold and the came back to me again, but before she spoke - I asked her for the time, it was 5:17pm already.  She the

Spring Deer Restaurant: Re-Opening?!!

Last year, I was so shocked (literally) when I saw the Jollibee signage around the building that Spring Deer in Timog used to occupy.  It has been a long time since I last passed by that place and so I was so shocked and saddened that Spring Deer has closed down. I asked so many friends who lived in the area for it's new location but, they were all clueless.  I told myself and family members that it was an end of an era.  My Panget's family frequented .  The food is good and the price, reasonable.  Ambiance is not something you'd come back for - but well, for me as long as the food is good, then ambiance can come in second. I have already lost hope. And then I see this: Is this the real deal? Are they really opening? Is this really happening? If so, I am very excited because the space is new and sooooo nearby! Woohooo!! Can anyone confirm?? This is along Ligaya Street, near Examiner and Quezon Avenue.  This is the street where the Moldex office is l

Fries is LIFE with Pompoms

I LOVE FRENCH FRIES. Would you believe when I was younger, disliked fries?  But when I liked them, it was a never ending love affair.  When I was pregnant with both kids, I used to have one pack so often just to satisfy my craving.  I would ask our cook at home to make me some homemade fries. This love affair was passed on to my kids as well.  I know it's not the healthiest, but french fries are really yummy.  Hahaha!!  I know, unhealthy! When I saw Pompoms on my IG feed, I knew I had to try it.  But since it's located in Robinson's Place Manila, well - that was the biggest hurdle.  I rarely find myself going there.  I honestly have forgotten the last time I was there.  It used to be a place my college friends and I frequented while in college.  But then, I was told that it has become bigger - more areas were added.  So when Rowena and I found ourselves in Robinson's Place for an event, I made sure to let Ro know that I wanted to try Pompoms.  I was honestly w

Robinsons loves PayMaya!

I was introduced to the convenience of Paymaya last year.  It's one of the easiest ways to receive and send money, it has a virtual card and an actual one that you can use here in abroad.  What I like about Paymaya the most, is the ease and convenience of where you can load it up.  Imagine that you can just go to any 7/11 store and load up your Paymaya card in real time.  YES, IN REAL TIME!  And that's 24/7! Technology has come along way - and now, even paying your bills and doing shopping can be done with the help of technology.  Just recently, I noticed QR codes on counters of Robinsons outlets, may it be their department store and retail stores.  I was quite intrigued and so I read it carefully.  Apparently, one can pay their purchases by using the app of Paymaya and scanning the QR code of the cashier!  That's so convenient right?  No need to bring big amounts of cash that might get lost or stolen.  Let's be honest - pick pockets have become very creative in th


I honestly have never tried bingsu.  Even during last year's trip to South Korea, I didn't have a chance to have one (maybe because it was so very cold!)  I have wanted to try it, but I never had the time.  I'm glad to have tried Snowbing - located in SM North Edsa's Main Mall.  It's the cozy space right beside Banana Leaf, apparently they're both from the same mother company. Snowbing offeres not just bingsu, but also pizza! It looks and tastes so good!  So refreshing, I swear it was a perfect treat for the summer!  The image above is the Cheesy Mango flavor, I honestly did not expect it to go good, together but it did!  Below is a closer look at their shaved ice. Look how fine it is, I was bowled over!  I was just expecting crushed ice, but this was really amazing, so look closely! Below is their signature Bulgogi Pizza. Who would have thought, bulgogi on pizza?  Hahahaha!! Finally, I can say that I've tried bingsu and I LOVE IT!  I th

Cakes by Addie's Pasteleria

Recently, my Kailee celebrated her 7th birthday.  Time flew by so quickly right?  I can't believe she's 7.  While I was composing my IG post - I couldn't help but tear but up.  I was being emotional and I couldn't help it.  I was happy that she's healthy and is becoming a generally good person.  I just can't help but think that in a few years time, she won't be my baby anymore.  I know it's inevitable, but I guess - every parent has this image of their kids (even if they've become grown adults) as their babies.  I am one of those. I asked her what kind of birthday cake she wanted.  She said she wanted a cake with a LOT of icing.  I have two sisters in law who are bakers, unfortunately - they were both full on that day.  So my next bet was Addie's Pasteleria.  I have ordered a chocolate cake from her before and I LOVED that it had soooo much icing!  I love icing too.  Hahaha.. I didn't hesitate anymore and sent a message to order.  Orderin
