Posted by on Dec 31, 2010 in Food

I don’t drop by Quezon City a lot these days but I used to frequent in Timog area before when I was still living in Commonwealth.  I used to go to this Reggae bar before a lot but they closed down already.  Sometimes, we just hang out at Quattro.  I have been here often and I have tasted mostly their pulutan on the menu such as sisig, calamari and the usual stuff.

Posted by on Dec 31, 2010 in Food

I have heard many things about Banawe street and that many restaurants flourish on this street for your dining pleasure.  It was my first time at Chef Roberts and I barely go to this area in town.  The place is humbly situated aside other restaurants.  We got there early at about 6pm and there were a few people already dining in.  As we were enjoying our food, I noticed more and more people...

Boredom, Blizzards and Idiots

Posted by on Dec 31, 2010 in Featured, Life, Personal

Our lifestyles have changed over time.  Most of us can’t stand doing nothing at one certain time.  We tinker on our iPads, cellphones and laptops when we’re idle and waiting.  I hate lines in the bank.  Some banks don’t allow the use of cellphone, so I wait in line for 15 minutes doing absolutely nothing.  O_o On the other hand, some great things sprung from boredom. For instance,...

Last Halloween, I decided to dress up as Pikachu and Vince as my Pokemon trainer – Ash Ketchum. So, How did I do it?

Body Sculpting, Weight Loss and Wellness at Aesthetic Science

Posted by on Dec 21, 2010 in Beauty, Featured, Health

In my family, the belly is the hardest to maintain.  We have a hard time taking our *puson* away, so sometimes, we need help taking them out.  One of my aunts took the surgical liposuction just because, sometimes, no matter how we work out our tummy, we never really get the result we want. Since I am not ready (yet, but someday I might be) to undergo liposuction, I got CostMentor quotes and I...

I really don’t follow this Disney girl a lot.  Not until I heard on TV that she admitted herself to rehab not because of drugs but physical and emotional issues. Demi Lovato Twitter Photos I was like “She’s doing fine.  Everyone thinks she’s doing fine, but she’s struggling with something.”  I admired her for being responsible and bravely took the first step to address her own...
