Online Shopping

I have to admit that I'm a shopaholic. I go crazy when I see a shopping mall having huge discounts however, you have to be ready on that day because many shoppers will be hoarding items. It's very stressful for me because I always bring my kid with me that why it's very convenient to shop online. I have been shopping online for 3 years now. From travel voucher, restaurant discount voucher, Chichi's baby stuffs to cosmetics and clothes I'm dying to have.

So hurry shopaholic friends,visit ZALORA Philippines online and get some discounted items.

The Southern Kitch - BF Resort


I was supposed to have coffee with my childhood pal Homer but, while I was driving around BF Resort I saw a new small restaurant. Instead of having coffee, we ended up having early dinner. 
Their prices is fairly ok. They serve rice meals, pasta dishes, burgers and they also have smoothies. 

 

 

I ordered Beef Southern rice bowls and Melon Shake. When my food was served, my initial reaction was 'Ahh! parang chowfan' but, the rice serving is more than Chowking's chowfan. I really did'nt like much the taste coz it's too plain. Though there's a lot of beef toppings and that's the only good thing about my meal.
Melon shake is awesome! I soooo like it. When Homer tasted my Melon shake he also ordered his own shake. Ang sarap promise, and it's only 88 pesos. And my mixed rice is 99 pesos. 

 

 

The place is really small for a dine-in restaurant. It feels like a family restaurant. We might come back here and try their pasta. Busog much kame for less than 200 pesos. Try it here.

ZOMATO Foodie Night at VYNE

My college buddy Tin and I attended last night's foodie meetup with Zomato Philippines at Vyne Bonifacio Global City. It was our first time to attend an event like this and we have met a lot of foodie / lifestyle bloggers like us.

Vyne's daily program.
 



The restaurant's ambiance is very classy yet they make it more appealing because of the pop art paintings which I really love the most.
Vyne's selection of food are Asian fusion so expect that you'll have more spicy foods on their menu. So, here's what we had last night.
First on their Tapas menu is Pork Chasu Bun. I love the meat on it, very tasty however the bun is too greasy for me, maybe because they put too much butter to toast the bun.

Second is Thai Scallops. You have to eat a piece as a whole. Their scallops is perfectly cooked and I loved it.

Mini Crab Cakes is the 3rd to be served on their Tapas menu. I didn't like it that much because the crab cake is too moist, feels like I'm eating it raw.

For our soup we had Prawn and Ravioli Laksa. First sip on the sauce, Wow! It's heaven and I consider it as my comfort food because it taste like my mom's dish. You can really taste the coconut milk and the level of spiciness is just perfect.

We had 2 set of salad. First is the Apple and Bleu Cheese, we all don't wanna eat it coz the presentation is so cute. Second salad is East Asian with kimchi on the side. This for me is more tasty though Apple salad is more enticing and rare kind of salad presentation.

For our noodle dish, we had Ramen Carbonara. Now, this is my 2nd favorite dish so far. It's not the typical kind of carbonara that you eat because once they served you the pasta they will pour the ramen broth which is so cool!

We had Vyne Burger which is a 200 gram of Beef pattie with Apricot jam? It's weird huh? First bite, yummmmy! Pure beef with no extenders. So good!

For our main course we first had Pan Seared Sole which is a fried fish fillet with sweet corn puree. My friend Tin, didn't like the corn puree but I liked it and my daughter Chichi will surely finish the whole serving of it, Lol.

For our last main course is US Angus Rib eye Steak. It has 4 kinds of dip. The steak is a 600 gram Prime Ribeye. I just had a bite of it. I'm not a fan of rare cooked beef. 

And finally, our dessert is Lemon Cheesecake. First bite, OMG! it's so good! I just became Kris Aquino again when I reacted when I tastes the cake. OA sa sarap! Super bitin as in super saraaap! The best cheesecake!
Overall food experience, 4/5. Zomato peeps did a great job on organizing this foodie event. We expect more foodie event on the next coming weeks. Thanks Zomato!

DIY: My old long sleeves to a new fashionable piece

I'll be attending an event this coming Saturday and I don't know what I'll be wearing so, I ransack my closet and found my old soft-maong type long sleeves.
Ofcourse, you need pair of scissors, some threads and needle so you can cut, sew your clothes.

I decided to cut off it's sleeves and put some designs on it to make it new/fashionable as it could. So, here's how it looks when you cut off the sleeves.
Just a simple running stitch will do for the hemline.
Then, you sew whatever embelishment you have and, viola! My old long sleeves got a new look now! I can wear it as it is or make it as a blazer. Very easy to do and I'm sure you can make it too on your old clothes. Just be creative and you'll have a new piece in an instant without costing you too much.

Blogapalooza 2014




I am extremely excited for the upcoming Blogapalooza 2014 on September 20 at SM Aura Taguig. This will be my first time to attend a big event to meet fellow bloggers and ofcourse to get some exciting freebies from the participating companies/sponsors.

I would love to meet and learn more about the blogging world and be inspired with the success of other known bloggers in our country. I guess, every blogger would want their blogs to be known and much read by others and to be monetized, like myself.

Throwback of all throwbacks

 

I could say that my childhood has been so much fun. No internet, no cellphone, no tablet/ipad, just purely having fun and playing outside with my childhood friends and watching tv shows. Every Saturday and Sunday morning, I religiously watch Bioman and Shaider.


Syempre, crush ko si Red One at ako si Pink Five! Until so many years, US had its American version of Bioman which is (go go!) Power Rangers. Ofcourse, forever fan ako ng Bioman. At sinong batang 90's ang hindi nakakakilala kay Shaider at Annie?  At ang mahiwagang yellow mini dress niya na laging nakikitaan ng panty pag tumatambling siya. 

And my favorite 90's anime tv show are Sailormoon, Time Quest, Ghostbusters and Mr. Bogus. Hindi ko alam kung bakit maraming nahuhumaling kay Tuxedo Mask at feeling ng lahat na babae eh sila si Sailor Moon. Oh well, not me, ang favorite ko si Sailor Mars, haha! 





Super aliw ang Time Quest ( lilipad, lilipad takure!). As in super saya ng mga cartoons noon. Syempre, kung mejo sosyaling bata ka bet mo ang mga english cartoons like Ghostbusters at Mr. Bogus, ( mr. bogus, lets play!)


And my favorite english tv show, Are you afraid of the dark? and Sabrina, the teenage witch. Nakakaloka lang ang 'Are you afraid' kasi noong gradeschool kame, every weekend after we have watched the episode of 'are you afraid', magpupulong pulong kame sa gabi ng mga childhood friends ko tas gagawa din kame bonfire sa tapat ng house namin, nakakaloka lang dahil never namin nagawa na lumiyab ang bonfire, eh pano ba naman buhangin ang hinahagis namin s apoy (goodluck talaga kung sisiklab yung apoy), kaya ang ending patay lagi ang apoy namin. Laughtrip lage. Then, magkkwentuhan lahat kame ng horror, kahit alam mong kalokohan ang kwento at puchu puchu ang scene ng kwento, benta padin, haha! 


And lastly, Sabrina the teenage witch. Wish ko noon, maging cutie witch ako at may powers and all. Bongga lang! Ang bata nga naman... haha.
I'm sure many of you have their own favorite 90's tv show. Share nio naman!

Late lunch at Big Better Burger

My best buddy Geri and I can't decide where we will have our late lunch. Good thing we were at Starmall Philam and we saw a new burger restaurant. Obviously by the store name they offer burgers and rice meals.
Their price are fairly reasonable however, there are other burger chain restaurant that is cheaper than Big Better Burger. Anyways, I ordered Beef pepper rice. This meal has thin strips of beef, kinda like bacon. Wasn't that peppery taste, but it's ok. I'll give it a try their other menu soon. And I hope, they will give me discount then.

New bag + new foot wear = happy Lee


After hubby had his OEC update, we went to Duty free to buy chocolates and Chichi's new toys and ofcourse, I have to buy for myself too, Lol. I bought United Colors of Benetton bag. Original price is 69 USD, but it was on sale and we only paid it for 50 USD.

Afterwards, we went to Greenbelt and while hubby is busy doing some paper works, I was able to go around Greenbelt and because I only have 1k on my wallet, I have no plans on shopping anything but to my surprise I found an Italian boutique and saw that their on sale for 70% off.


It's a steal! It's original price is 1,500 pesos but because it's on sale, I only paid 300 pesos. Yup! I saved a lot. And because of that, I was able to buy hubby and Chichi our favorite merienda ensaymada in Cafe  Mary Grace.

More shopping, more fun! Till my next bargain buy. ;)
