EAT MAKATI: Hummus Elijah


Disclaimer: I’ve never eaten hummus before, I’m not an expert and I particularly am not fond of the food.. BUT I wanted to try. Heyyy, at least give me that. okay?

The space was a bit cramped and dark but it is very popular to foreigners. I think we were the only Filipinos eating there.

First off, I wanted a safe order so I tried the Hummus Elijah for I thought it’s a remarkable dish since it’s their signature.

20180502_122338 Hummus Elijah at Php 250 – Hummus with Tahini, Chicken Peas, Olive Oil, Herbs and Spices. For me, it was bland and so ordinary. It’s not even good (like you’ve placed butter on bread, and it’s not even butter! After my third bite, I said, Nah. I am not eating this. Blah. Don’t order this.

20180502_122853 Shakshuka at Php 200 – 2 eggs cooked in thick tomato sauce. This is slightly a bit better. I’m not a tomato person but the tomato saved this dish.

Hamshuka at Php 290 – Hummus + Shakshuka with Spicy Sauce and Tahini

Out of the three dishes that we tried, this is probably the best. It’s not a winner but to compare, it’s the most decent one and a dish that I can probably finish.

BTW, All of the dishes are served with 2 Pita Breads.

I’m getting the hang of Fake Smile. I managed to put on one when all I can think about is how I wasted my Php 250 for something I did not enjoy. Never again.

THOUGHTS: UP WINS THE OXFORD


The team from UP College of Law was declared as the Overall Champion for the 2015 International Round of the 8th Annyal Price Media Law Moot Court Competition. 

Remarkable Isn’t it?

They defeated 100 universities who took part in the competition including Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, Greece, India, Lebanon, Serbia, Tobago, United Kingdom and United States.

The Moot Court Competition is a simulated court proceeding that will prepare each of the law students for the real world litigation. It aims to foster an interest in some of the most cutting edge issues of our time by using solid empirical research that is grounded in historical context.

What was the case? They defended a legislation of a fictitious country that found a blogger civilly liable for advocating converting a minority religion by all means.

The winning team is composed of Gil Anthony Aquino, Gemmo George Fernandez, Rachel Miranda, Raphael Pangalangan, Pip Chungalao and Pauline Gairanod.

I may not be able to understand every word a lawyer has to say, but I am deeply proud of this winning team. Not only did they make their families and friends proud, but they also represented the Philippines. So to everyone, Congratulations and you did a remarkable job! Thank you for honing such great minds, UP!

TRAVEL: PANAGBENGA 2014


 

 

 

 

 

How to get there? Victory Liner at 8:30 pm – the last trip to Baguio. 8:30 pm – 3:30 am arrival. 

No time to officially take photos of course, we went straight to our Transient. Image

 

 

You have to be really early like 5:00 am early to really pick your spot. At 5:30 am, the Session Road is full of expecting tourists already. You have to consider where the performers will stop, where the sun is and where the perfect angle for shots are. 

Image

And when you get there by 5:00 am with no sleep, you’ll be so hungry by the time the show ends at about 11:00 am if you finish the whole parade. BUt no worries as there are a lot of street vendors. You can try the Strawberry Taho – one of their signatures. 

Image

And PANAGBENGA 2014 officially starts. A month long celebration which showcases blooming of flowers.

EVERYDAY: S&R Sale


Everyone loves sale! Filipinos as well. We are able to buy goods less than its worth so you are able to maximize your funds!😊
We were there around 8 in the morning! The parking was already full. Cars that were about to enter ate in full line. We were about the 20th car to go in and it was full. The line to enter the doors were a puzzle.
Once we entered, they had to look at the membership cards so that they will only give carts 1 per card. Whew! And you know how wide the isles are right? One cart couldn’t even fit. Gaah!

The line to the cashier. It extended way to the back if the store.

We finished around 1pm. And yep, my mom had to pat for that amount. But hey, we were able to buy A LOT. Including some of the gift list.(: and then we were starving already so we head out to solaire foodcourt.
