Korean Restaurant Shinsun Sulungtang Corp along Friendship Town, Angeles City

Here is another restaurant for my Pampanga food series. Located along Friendship Highway are tons of Korean Restaurants. As I have explained here, Friendship Highway has become a Korean Town because all the Koreans who migrated? in Angeles set up businesses and houses in this area. Friendship Highway is just outside Clark Field so you definitely wouldn't miss it.

Apartment 1B at One Lafayette Square, Makati

I was craving for my ultimate comfort food which is the Mac and Cheese. The best place I've tried that so far was at Apartment 1B Rockwell Branch. Since we were in Makati area already, we decided to look for the branch there which has no parking space at all. We had to park two blocks away and walked towards the restaurant.

Tajimaya Yakinuku Restaurant and Sebastian's Ice Cream in SM Mall Of Asia

As many of you have already heard, my cousin Ahya Paul and his wife, who is also my blog mentor Achi Fran of are moving to Singapore soon! So before they leave, all the cousins gathered up and had a despidida party to wish them both farewell. The place chosen was Tajimaya located in SM Mall of Asia because everyone wanted to try the famous eat-all-you-can grilled meats.

Beverly's Laid Back Sunday Debut Party

My cousin Beverly is shy. She doesn't really like to be put on the spotlight. So, for her 18th birthday, she requested not to have a party at all. If she was my child, I'll be jumping with joy because that means less expenses for me! Anyway, the cousins wouldn't agree to her wish and decided to give her a NOT-SO-SURPRISE simple party. We just ordered a lot of delicious comfort food and had a DVD marathon after chowing. I guess our cousins Bev was completely satisfied by that. 

Happy 18th Birthday Bev!!

Chanel: Rouge Allure Velvet 35 L'Elegante

Last December, the companion and his family invited me to go to Duty Free Philippines to help them pick out goodies to be given to their staff and friends for Christmas. While strolling around getting yummy stuff and amazing gifts, the companion told me to pick something for myself when we passed by the Chanel make up counter. Yippee for me!

Good morning everyone!

Right after out Lush Haul, we went to the newly opened Yabu The House of Katsu for dinner. Would you believe we waited for 2 and a half hours just to dine here??!

Lush Haul

Last January 10, I received an sms message from Lush staff telling me the store is having 50% discount on selected items at Lush Store SM Mall Of Asia starting January 10 till January 31 as their end of season sale. Since I still have a couple of Bubble Bars left, I was just merely curious on what the sale items were. I was not eager to get any at all. When the companion heard me tell him about the sale the next day, he quickly disregarded all our Friday evening plans and we went straight to SM Mall of Asia.

Mamou Too in Power Plant Mall

Another Sunday dinner with the companion and his family. We chose Mamou Too because we were craving for a good steak and that To Die For Truffle Cream Pasta. When dining at Mamou, always make sure you call in advance to make a reservation. They are very strict in their two seating time every night. One is at 6pm and the next is at 8pm. We got the 8pm but reached Rockwell at 7:30pm. We went to the restaurant hoping they'll be able to give us a table but they couldn't. The place was packed!

Cibo at Glorietta 4, Makati

We went to Glorietta to watch the super scary but super amazing ( for me that is ) Chernobyl Diaries a couple of months back. After watching, we weren't really hungry because we ate a lot of Potato Corner Fries and Taters Potato Chips. So in the end, we decided to just have a light dinner at Cibo before going home.

Toll House at Angeles City

Whenever I'm in the province working, I don't usually go out. It's not because there are no places to go but rather life in the province makes you laid back in a way that you want to be in bed at 8pm. Well, another reason might be I have no friends to go out and have lunch or dinner with here in Angeles City. Anyway, on those rare moments that I do go out, it will be because my mom would ask me to stop working and go out to eat. One of our favorite eateries to go to is the Toll House.

T.G.I.Friday's at Robinsons Place Manila

All my siblings gathered together one night to have a farewell dinner for my Achi and her family. They went back to China early next day. While everyone was munching appetizers at T.G.I.Friday's, Audrey asked me to sneak her out and take her to Tom's World. She's one smart child.

Ferino's Bibingka Gilmore

Last Saturday, the companion and I were still having a "Christmas Hangover" and we were both craving for Bibingka. He suggested we go all the way to Greenhills just to eat at Ferino's. I've never tried or heard about this place before. So in spite of it was pretty nakakatamad to drive all the way to the far far away land (Greenhills), we still did because the companion kept on raving how he used to eat here all the time when he was younger and he remembered the rice cakes were simply delicious.

'Cue Modern Barbecue at Bonifacio High Street Central

It was 3 pm. I haven't had lunch. The companion had to take his car to the casa to have it cleaned at Fort so he told me to just choose a restaurant there. I've been wanting to try 'Cue Modern Barbecue for the longest time so that was my chance to eat there!

Lolo Dad's Brasserie at 6750

Today is a very sad day for me. 

One of my ultimate eating, shopping, and traveling companion has left 6 am awhile ago.

KD is going away for one whole year with little chances of coming back for a visit. She said we could meet up in Japan on June because she's going there for a conference. I want to but I'm not sure if my wallet can send me there.

She's going to Washington to finish her Ph.D. Program. I feel so depressed..

Anyway, all the girls gathered together for a despidida or going away party for KD.

Last Weekend Snacks: Jamba Juice, KFC, Potato Corner, Taho Bar, Big Chill

Good morning my dear readers!

Since I had mild snuffles last week, the doctor recommended plenty of fluids and vitamin C. I was keen on drinking a lot of my favorite FOJ.

Hai Kang Seafood Restaurant at Greenhills, San Juan

Another New Year tradition we always do is celebrating it with my Dichi's ( second sister ) husband's family. This started 3 years ago when the parents of my brother-in-law would graciously host a New Year's Day dinner for us. For the past 2 years the venue would always be at Annapolis Seafood Palace but since it started to degrade ( I heard though I'm not sure?! ) this year it was changed to Hai Kang Seafood Restaurant. I have never dined here before but I read a lot of good reviews about this place. Let's see if they are all true.

Destination: Fontana

After our short but definitely relaxing stay to Baguio Part 1 & Part 2, we were supposed to go straight to Manila and wait for New Year to come probably by watching those cheeky MMFF movies at the malls. On the way home, my mom changed her mind. She's not really a mall person and she kept on thinking where to go so that the 2 baby girls with us would have a great and memorable vacation here in the Philippines. She thought about Fontana and the Water Park inside it. We haven't been to Fontana for such a long time. Hopefully it's still the same clean and great place to stay at.

Destination: Baguio (Part 2)

( Continuation of my Baguio Vacation photo diary Part 1 )

After playing with the babies at BCC Christmas Village, we went back to meet up with the rest of the family at the Veranda to have merienda.

Destination: Baguio (Part 1)

Right after the party at RS Farm ended, we drove straight to Baguio Country Club. We reached the cold place around 8 in the evening. We quickly checked in to our 3 reserved rooms as we were a lot because my Achi and her family came with us. We ordered room service before sleeping like a log. We were all exhausted because it was a 5 hour drive from Angeles to Baguio.

Here is my photo diary of our 3 days and 2 nights stay at Baguio. We wished to extend our stay but since it was fully booked till January 1st, we had no choice but to leave.

Christmas Party at RS Farm, Malino Pampanga

Continuing a tradition we always do since we were younger till recent times that some of my cousins have already started their own families, we spend Christmas lunch at RS Farm in Malino, Pampanga. This is the farm of my mom's relatives. We would always have a fantastic busog-to-the-max lunch, after that we will play the money raffle game courtesy of the generous Genra.
