This is one of the most important days every year where we can treat our moms extra extra special. ❤
The parentals. 😀
Zong’s food was the perfect match to this eventful day. ❤
The two mothers in our life. ❤
Let everyday be Mother’s Day. ❤ ❤ ❤
It’s my second time and apparently, Coron doesn’t disappoint. Other than the fact, that I wasn’t able to actually go under water, I still enjoyed being a bystander. 😛
Majestic waters of Coron, Palawan. ❤ ❤ ❤
We are actually here because my cousin, my brother and his girlfriend’s first time here.
For the first day, we had our second prenup. You wouldn’t believe what we had to go through. I suggest for everyone travelling the beach, make sure not to wait for the water to be low tide. Dang! such an experience.
Kudos to this team who was so patient, so bubbly and energetic. I was so hesitant to try them at first but the outcome was just how we requested. 🙂
As you can see, the hubby to be is so happy to be with me. 😀 HAHA. We are now about to start our day at the beach!
At the famous spot where every freakin’ tourist has a picture.
This is where they enjoyed their time in the water at Kayangan Lake.
And here, we had lunch at the Green Lagoon at a floating bamboo house. ❤
We had a lot of free time in our hands. Most of us swam, some kayak, snorkel and everything in between.
The Green Lagoon at its finest. ❤
And a picture at the Maquinit Hotspring. ❤
I will be creating a video to capture what transpired during the trip. ❤ ❤ ❤
Until next time! ❤
Here’s another Korean Restaurant you can try within Poblacion, Makati! 😀 Yay for some amazing food within our range of lunch proximityyy!
Okay, since I was with my officemates, I wasn’t really able to try the core food items that they are offering since we stuck with their lunch menus. . .
For Appetizers, we chose K-Taco for Php 320 – housemade kimchi tortilla with korean pulled pork and pickled vegetables.
I was a bit hesitant cause I didn’t really like the taste of kimchi but this one is really good, actually. Kimchi was there but barely. The vegetables are just perfect for the meat. However, the tortilla was already soaked with what sauce they placed in there so when I picked up mine, it fell right through. — Delicious, nonetheless.
Buldak Dosirak Meal for Php 249 — Barbecued marinated pieces of chicken with melted cheese.
Jeyuk Dosirak Meal for Php 249 – Stir fried pork belly and vegetables in sweet and spicy sauce
Bulgogi Dosirak Meal for Php 249 – Thinly sliced marinated sirloin.
Ojingo Bokkeum Dosirak Meal for Php 249 – Stir fried squid and vegetables in sweet and spicy sauce
Everyone was raving about their own dish! Value for money? Defnitely. Everyone was sooo full and satisfied with the taste and the size. Each Dosirak Lunch Menu comes with Kimchi, Eggrolls, Dilis, veggies and rice.
Black Sesame Creme Brulee for Php 220 – Black sesame infused custard topped with caramelized sugar.
I thought this would be a weird tasting dessert but I was wrong! It was actually nice but the caramelized sugar on top made it too sweet for me.
Gaja is such a winner to all of us and we all agreed we need to come back for more. ❤
GOODREADS: ‘Bobby Gugino realized he may have met the man of his dreams in Jody Olsen, only neither of them were gay, so far as Bobby knew. But when Jody came out and ended his marriage, Bobby’s entire worldview was skewed, and his own health issues lead to his own coming out. Fast forward four years and Bobby runs into Jody again, but Bobby may be too busy making up for lost time to see how great they are together.’
If you are looking for a very light read, this is it! There’s no too much drama, no sudden twist, no surprise just romance between two guys who came out late in life, trying to figure out how to look for their own rainbow in this multi colored world.
GOODREADS: ”In an unflinching story about new love, old wounds, and forces beyond our control, two teens find that when you collide with the right person at just the right time, it will change you forever. Jonah never thought a girl like Vivi would come along. Vivi didn’t know Jonah would light up her world.”
Life is always a celebration right? so when you have the chance to thank the heavens for 60 years of life on this earth — you do it. You do it with the people that matters to you.
So here’s a rundown of what happened:
The celebrant in an all-white outfit.
Of course with some of our close relatives.
We had some games, some trivias and some video that the celebrant is currently watching.
There were some band and some dance instructors to entertain the oldies. 😛
My family. ❤
And my love, ❤
Happy Birthdayyyy, Nang!
Venue: Marqui, BGC.
Finally! ❤ A reasonable quality time with my hubby to be. ❤
In the world of art, paintings are what really fascinates me. More than being jealous, I really admire their craft, the strokes and how each one of them can create something close to reality with just a brush and clouds of paint. ❤ ❤ I only wish to be like them.
On a sidenote, what do girls have to do to teach the boyfriends to be IG Boyfriend? Hahaha. Just look at the photos I take of him . . .
compared to what he takes . . .
Hahaha. A Manual on it please?
Sometimes, only sometimes. . . we get to have employee benefits, only small ones. . and this time, we get to try the new Shake Shack before it opens to the public.
Shake Shack Philippines was brought by none other than the Tantoco Family. It’s located in Central Square, BGC.
I ordered the Single Shack Burger for Php 250 which is amazinnggg. It was juicy and delicious but compared to the one in NYC that I tried, the size is a bit smaller. And you can never eat a burger without fries right? I ordered the Regular Fries for Php 130. But the one I couldn’t refuse is Salted Caramel Milkshake for Php 190. Simply, THE BOMB. I can down the whole thing if only it didn’t give me a brain freeze. 😀
When the long line is over, I’d like to try again with my judey. 😀
GOODREADS: The girl calls herself Ursa, and she claims to have been sent from the stars to witness five miracles. With concerns about the child’s home situation, Jo reluctantly agrees to let her stay—just until she learns more about Ursa’s past.
CAPTIVATING. The Story is simply captivating.
Where did this little girl come from? Is she a changeling? Should I be scared? Is this some sort of sci-fi fiction? Does she have powers? and why in the hell is this girl so smart?
As I kept on reading chapter after chapter, I felt nothing but pure curiosity how this story unfolds, what secret ursa is keeping and is she really from another universe? Man! Ursa got her story figured out! From her earpood and hetrayeh to the quarks!!
In a way, everyone needs to be more like Ursa. She is stubborn, knows what she wants and fights for it, courageous, strong willed, resourceful and curious about every little thing! AND, she sees the joy in all places! ❤
This is my first time to read a Vanderah and I’m sure as hell won’t doubt to read another one. ❤ (Two days too! )
It’s this somewhat obscure place along Sucat, Paranque. It’s not hidden, the signage is screaming from the road but I never noticed this place until now. OR, it’s probably the wing hater in me that prevented me to see. Haha.
The place is not complicated, basically just tables and chairs. It’s a bit messy, plastics here and there. The dips / sauce is smeared on the tables.
They have no Ala Carte, all our unlimited with different price points and you get to enjoy 12 different flavors. 😀 If you’re not screaming for joy, then I don’t know what is wrong with you. 😛 It’s Php 206 for Unli Wings and Rice!
We had only 3 sets and you can order a bunch of flavors in 1 set already. 😀 and we are full by the third set!
And the aftermath . . . .
I mostly enjoyed the company of my best friends which I normally don’t get to see. 😛
The boyfriend will definitely enjoy this. ❤
GOODREADS: Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies…
That’s what seventeen-year-old Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of just one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past that she wishes could just stay buried. When the secrets he’s been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky’s life will change forever.
This book will let you experience butterflies in your stomach at one point and when you’re invested already, it will make you see pain, fear and trauma.
First, let me just put it out there:
THE BANTER. ❤ ❤ ❤ I am fascinated with guys in the books who has a PHD in Banter. GAH. The way they twist their statements . . . ❤ ANYWAY, what I liked about this book is that it’s not just another romcom YA. It talks about the grief and devastation of a child who experienced a very traumatic sexual abuse at such a young age from her father. Alcohol, drugs and let alone depression will never be and should not be an excuse for anyone to sexually abuse someone. It haunts the victim and they carry it with them, no matter how long it has been.
I guess the only thing I didn’t like about the book is the romance part. I know I did say that I love the banter, but it’s just that. How can they fall in love in just 2 months and talk about forever? How can Sky feel ‘broken’ after just going out for 2 days? How can she feel devastated just because a guy refused to talk to her for a week? I mean, come on!! Get a grip! Sure, there were I love yous but I don’t really believe in Sky + Holder. 😛
It was an okay read but there was no I-can’t-put-it-down urge. Tho, I finished it in 2 days!
Goodreads: Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish. Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of what really happened the day her daughter died.
Okay, I . DID . NOT . EXPECT . THAT.
This is no secret, I love Colleen Hoover’s books but this is mind blowingly different. It got me all confused — in an intellectual, magnificent way of writing. Verity is the ultimate manipulator!
Okay, before I spill some more details . . this is sick af but I kind of connected with the Verity from the manuscript. It’s creepy as hell and I’m not saying that I can kill a person or attempt to kill one, at the very least. But I honestly feel the same way about kids, and I don’t know if it’s ever going to change. All I can say is that the Verity in the manuscript is twisted but I do understand where she’s coming from, (not the sex addict part though).
You can never truly know a person inside and out. This book has so many plot twists I don’t even know where the truth is! I have no idea who the good person is. Verity is twisted and disturbing but YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT IT DOWN. ❤
I completely recommend you read this book . . A S A P
You have no idea how thrilled I am to finally posting another Kapitolyo Food Find! ❤ Kapitolyo has long been my first food discovery and it’s been TOO long! and this is no other than . . . .
So I thought it’s a self service type since a counter greeted us when we walked in. . .
There’s graffiti and vandals on the wall full of drawings, quotes and what not. It’s actually quite spacious! When we got there about 12:30 nn, there’s only a few tables occupied but it gradually filled up quite fast. And to our surprise, there’s even tables outside. . .
I am guessing this is really packed with people during Friday or at night, filled with people downing their beers. Let’s get to the food.
Mount Nachos – Php 195 Tortilla chips drizzled in cheese and their home made BBQ sauce topped with sliced jalapenos and pulled pork bits. Pulled Pork is ❤
Rib Mountain Small (Php 275) This small order is already good for two. For us, it’s more than 1 but not enough for 2. 😀 Their home made BBQ is perfect for their ribbbssss. ❤
We are both happy, full and definitely satisfied with the price = value for money. ❤ Definitely coming back!
