Trip to Shanghai: Day 1

So here it is!  Day 1 of our Shanghai adventure.  The flight from Manila to Shanghai would take a little over 3 hours and I loved the flights that we booked because we would arrive in Shanghai really early and leave really late, thereby maximizing our time there.  We booked our flights with China Eastern, which … Continue reading

The SuperStar Virgo Cruise 2018 Experience

Hello! Writing this post somewhat quite suddenly based on a need.  The hubby and I just came back from our first time cruise vacation with my family last week and we posted some photos from our trip in social media after we got back.  Turns out we had several friends who booked trips for the … Continue reading

Trip to China

Okay, so I haven’t been blogging for a while… for a good reason…  which is that I didn’t have a computer to use!  We have laptops at work, but I can’t use that for personal work, and we do have a shared tablet at home, but I found the wordpress app to be quite difficult … Continue reading

Friuli Trattoria

Maginhawa Street in Quezon City is getting known as food street.  It’s as if the residences there suddenly realized they all wanted to open up restaurants.  To get there, you can go through either CP Garcia Avenue or via Elliptical Road.  (Maps courtesy of Google Maps and Wikimapia) Here’s a snapshot of the restaurants there. … Continue reading

Belle de Jour 2014 Planner

My Belle de Jour 2014 planner has finally arrived!  I was not expecting it to arrive yesterday since it’s a national holiday.  It took quite a while too (more suspense, I guess) considering that I ordered it on the first week of October. What’s so special about the planner this year?  For one thing, you … Continue reading

My Christmas Wishlist

  There are a lot of things I would want to save up for, things that are useful in the house.  I’m not one who buys expensive bags or designer shoes, and yes, to me a Coach bag is expensive and I don’t see the need for one.  As I always say, the bag shouldn’t … Continue reading

Mezza Norte at Trinoma

We’ve been to Mezza Norte several times, back when it was still located at the UP-Ayala Technohub along Commonwealth Avenue, and more so when they moved to their current location at the open parking of the Trinoma Mall.  It’s a setup composed of several dozen food stalls with tents and plastic tables and chairs that … Continue reading

New Food Options at Serenitea

Aside from the usual pepper chicken and pepper corn, I like the mochi buns at Serenitea.  And depending on how hungry you are, you’ll likely find something that will pair well with your drink. Now… tada… drum roll, please…. new snack options! Now those who aren’t fond of very peppery snacks will have more options.  … Continue reading

Espresso Day at McDonald’s

I first heard about the espresso day promo from facebook.  So here’s the deal.  You know McDonald’s has McCafe.  Mondays and Saturdays only.  For every value meal that you purchase, you can have your drink upgraded for free to a regular cappuccino or a medium iced mocha.  I think it’s a great deal because an … Continue reading

PF Chang Mongolian Pork

So I’ve never been to PF Chang but my friends have told stories and squealed in excitement when they opened their first branch in Manila.  I wasn’t too excited to try it because I knew the prices would be sky high.  Other than McDonald’s, every other food place franchised from the US is expensive.  Think … Continue reading
