Mama’s 2 Minutes Grocery Experience

So I decided to bring my mom to a 2 minutes grocery shopping experience after her watching the same concept in a morning show Umagang Kay Ganda.

Her laughter is countless while watching the said segment. She even have comments on how the contestant should do her picks. However, doing it by herself seems to be a different story. She tends to get those items she can also reseller on our store. Time limit and the excitement tends to give her panic. She’s expecting to pick at least ten thousand worth but ended up with little on her cart.

Things I learned about this experience:

Being unplanned and hurry about things that make us so excited tends to give a little in return. Slow down and make good choices so that we can reap better seeds... See, even little things like this could give us life learning.

Gyu-Kaku Smokeless Grill Experience

The new east wing of Shangri-la Mall in Edsa features many new restaurant concepts every foodie must visit. 
One restaurant, I tried is Gyu Kaku. A premium Japanese restaurant franchise offering grill barbeque and some special Asian favorites.

As starters we had this Kimchi Jiggae Korean soup with slices of pork and fresh silken tofu.
Bibimbop as carbo for  this feast.
Grilling Feast started with some ox tongue... Yes! Lengua is superb when grilled. Soft and tender and literally feels like melting in your mouth.

Some wagyu are best to try it here. Unlike most of Korean restaurants, that uses cast grilller, their smokeless charcoal grill makes the taste just so perfect.  The meat are also carefully selected with good layers of fat making each bite moist and tasty.
it has been 3 years before I was able to post this :P

Little Gems of Little Tokyo Makati

Visited again for the nth time my favorite Japanese restaurant in Little Tokyo Makati Philippines. It was introduced to me by a friend who works nearby. Just a thought of it that the restaurant is inside a Japanese convenience store gives me a thrill.

I’ve never been a fan of fancy dine eating and will forever be seeking gems like Yamazaki. Apart of course from it feels affordable, there will always be a authentic connotation to hole in the wall like this.

For starters we had Gyoza that taste heavenly heheh 😊. I suggest if you are in a group of 3 or 4 better order 2 sets because personally, I can really finish a serving ... soo good.

Lugang Cafe Unlimited Treat

Treat your Mom because Mother’s day isn’t over yet pr can be an early Father’s Treat. It can also be just a family weeken eat out or a dinner treat afterwork. Lugang Cafe’s promo could be one of your treat option.

I have been to this restaurant several times and they array of Asian dishes is something that would make you crave for sometime. Regular treats could be a bit expensive but with their current promo that runs until June 02,2018 every Mondays to Saturdays and it will really give you a bang for the buck.

Gab and I visited some time in May and initially this is not our original plan. We really want to go to a buffet or Filipino cuisine but we were limited by the choices in the mall. Until we passed by Lugang Cafe and we were offered with the promo.

We had around 26 dishes reapetedly from the wide choices offered in the menu of the unli-promo. Technically, each plate would only cost us less than P60. Isn’t that amazing ? 😊😊😊. Their Xiao Long Bao I must say is the best in town. Not even comparable to the Michelin Star restaurant . Plus that they have a wide range of XLB choices.

Have you also experienced their Unli Promo? Share your thoughts.

How To Become a Mom

No, its not a literal question of a girl being a mom... but curious asidr, we simply want to ask how will a mom considers or realises she’s already being a mom. When will she finally calls herself a mom...

I asked four of my friends and here is their “How to become a mom?” Reaction video...

We all know that being a mom is a really tough job.. 24/7 on call and on duty. But surprising to them, its one of the most fulfilling job... and we as their children will forever be greatful for their endearing unconditional love...

We owe them so much and a day of Celebration for Mother’s Day may not be enough to compliment all their hardworks... May we treat each day like Mother’s day and let them feel special in every big and small way.

Happy Mother’s Day
I love you Mama.

HwaRoRo Korean Nights

Never have thought of Korean food as my comfort food. I would normally go for Chinese or home cooked Filipinos dishes. Usually, craving for Korean dishes is because you would go for unlimited pork for Samgyupsal. Since I started Keto diet, this grilled pork has been my go-to buffet treat and would visit one every two weeks (if I have budget).

Some Korean grilled buffet would only give you the regular pork thin cut. But HwaRoRo, is one of the game changer! Apart from the usual Pork, they have a variety of beef, chicken and some sausages as low as P399.

They also offer buffet of side dishes which will no longer require you to call their staff just to ask them because you have an access to the buffet of sides. Just don’t take much as you can consume.

Arca’s Yard in Baguio

Baguio, tho maybe considered an old hub for quick summer get away, it never stops surprising us with good places to hang out and of course good food to try.

Sitted on mountain cliffs, this Arca’s Yard offers comforting food of a usual cafeteria with a scenic view of Baguio’s pride nature. This to me also is perfect place to have a quick RnR with your loved ones. Its small homey ambience makes the stay worth the exhale of an exhausting city life.

Food is not something so different from any cafes in the metro but its freshness gives a unique taste to everything. From the freshly picked vegetables of their salad and freshly cooked chicken and brewed tea and coffee.
