Nasi Lemak = Good!

After 12 hours of fasting and 5 hours at Medical City for diagnostic & laboratory exams, I got extremely hungry! Since Robinsons Galleria's the nearest mall to go to for lunch, I decided to walk my chunky butt there & grab some chow. When I chanced upon Nasi Lemak, I knew where I wanna eat. There were so many delectable food choices to pick from ... the best chow from Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia & India. I picked the Nasi Lemak Set, consisting of moist & juicy BBQ chicken, cucumber, thin & crispy Indian papadam, egg, sambal ikan bilis (dried anchovies with spicy paste), fried kuning or fish and nasi lemak rice (coconut milk rice) with peanuts. That was good and heavy! I also ordered the Thai Pomelo salad ... fresh pomelo chunks with shredded cabbage and carrots, tossed in a sweet yet mildly spicy Thai dressing. Definitely, this salad was one refreshing treat! It was a satisfying meal for me, once again. I can't wait to try the other dishes soon! *burp*

Easy Breezy!

Last Sunday, we decided to meet up with friends at TriNoMa to have dinner and watch "Resident Evil: Afterlife." We anticipated a long queue for this blockbuster movie, especially on a Sunday night. Just to avoid the hassle of lining up, we used Ticket reservations were such a breeze! After getting the
tickets, we went to Super Bowl of China for dinner. I got the Roast Pork with Bean Curd rice toppings for only Php 99! What a treat! With bottomless drinks and shrimp crackers (or kropek), that was a steal. After dinner and chit-chats, we had Dairy Queen for dessert. The Butterfinger Blizzard was such a classic favorite! Yummy! I decided not to watch the movie, simply because I didn't
even catch the 1st 3 Resident Evil movies! Alone, I rode the MRT from North Avenue Station to Magallanes Station. Again, it was easy breezy ... no traffic, no big crowds and I was seated the whole trip ... all because it was a Sunday. That's why I love Sundays! I can't wait for the next weekend. *smile*

Lovin' Sundays...

Waking up after hours of complete slumber on a beautiful Sunday is such a bliss! What's more delightful -- breakfast in bed! With a plate full of dilis and tomatoes, danggit, corned beef, sinangag plus a cup of hot and thick chocolate ... what more can you ask for? Oh how I love Sundays! *quality time*

Mmm Taco & Spag!

Today's a TGI Friday and it's a holiday! I'm loving the atmosphere -- no hustle & bustle, a li'l bit of clean air & no traffic! As soon as I got out of RCBC Plaza, I knew where I was headed to. I've been craving for Pancake House's tacos and spaghetti thus, I went straight to its Waltermart branch. I ordered their House Specialties plate -- the best taco in town (ground beef, lettuce, tomato, onions & cheese in a crispy taco shell), just-like-Mom's spaghetti with meat sauce, 1-pc pan fried chicken, fresh garden salad, yummy garlic bread & traditional chunky potato salad on the side. Buuurp! *craving satisfied*

Aaah! Just saw this photo in my phone's photo album. It's BD's chicken sopas! How I miss the hot, creamy chicken soup, full of firm-to-the-bite macaroni, shredded chicken breast, chunks of vienna sausage, crunchy julienned carrots & cabbage ... comatose, 'ika nga ni Toni! *waiting for October for BD's arrival*

Canyon Cove Once More ...

I had such a memorable 3-day weekend last week. The gang headed out to one of our favorite places, Canyon Cove in Nasugbu, Batangas. We arrived there at around 10pm on Saturday. Despite the lack of space, all 14 of us managed to squeeze our butts just to savor a great experience together. With minimal sleep and growling tummies, we went to Skyline Restaurant at the hotel for brekkie buffet. The guys went swimming at the pool, did smack-down pool fights and then had an hour of beach volleyball under the scorching heat of the sun. On our way back to Manila, we stopped at Kaye Ryan Grill in Tagaytay for dinner. Everybody were dead-tired but definitely had uber fun! I'm looking forward to another weekend get-away with these guys. *smile*

Bring It On, Breton ...

Whether you’re longing for savory or sweet crepes, Cafe Breton brings you the best of both worlds. I love the sinfulness this place delivers. Last Friday night, we dropped by at its Tomas Morato branch and ordered dessert crepes to go. Got this: French pancake, filled with peanut butter, grape concord jelly and fresh bananas, folded in four and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. D-E-L-E-C-T-A-B-L-E! On the other hand, Toni, Edward and RJ got the La Pinay … crepe filled with mangoes and Nutella. Now, can you please help me spell delectable again? *crepe heaven*

Mami Goodness!

For the nth time, I found myself stuck in the middle of a jam-packed MRT train northbound on a busy Friday night. Toni decided to meet me & RJ for dinner at our favorite mami house, Masuki.
Why do we love Masuki? They offer a variety of good-tasting mami, siopao and siomai at very affordable prices. I was hungry like a horse so I ordered a huge bowl of my favorite, Beef Wonton Mamigupit noodles on steaming hot soup with tasty beef brisket, beef wonton (which you can order separately, too) and freshly chopped green onions. Mmm! I also got their Pork Asado Siopao … delicious steamed bun filled with scrumptious shredded pork. Comforting indeed. These toothsome stuff go well with black gulaman. *busog to death*
Visit Masuki at Sekai Center along Ortigas Ave. cor. Madison Street, Greenhills, San Juan City.

A Heartfelt Letter ...

August 27, 2010
9:07 AM
RCBC Plaza, Makati City

Dear Longganisa,
Don’t get me wrong. You’re still one of my favorites among all breakfast items. But I had to move on, at least for this day. I needed to seek variety. I chose Delifrance’s sausage breakfast tray to satisfy my growling tummy. Delish frankfurters, 2 sunny side-up eggs, baguette with butter & strawberry jam, fresh fruit platter, premium orange juice & freshly brewed coffee made my rainy Friday! Don’t worry … I’ll be coming back to you real soon. Promise.
XOXO, Chunky

DQ Delite!

After a hard day at work, nothing beats this reward: Dairy Queen! Just had DQ’s creamy, soft serve vanilla ice cream in a chocolate-and-nuts coated waffle cone. Deliciously crunchy! Jimmy had Chocolate Cheesecake Blizzard. Imagine rich, chocolate ice cream studded with cheesecake chunks. Heaven on earth! Bad points — high in saturated fat & very high in sugar. What the heck!

Mmm Burgersteak!

On a budget? Craving for grilled food? Try Reyes BBQ … they offer a wide array of grilled dishes, including seafood (like bangus and squid), pork and chicken bbq. I was so hungry after work, and decided to eat late lunch at their Waltermart Makati branch. I had this … mmm good grilled hamburger steak! Their patties are juicy and grilled just right. The gravy smothered over the burgers made a big difference … made me order another cup of Java rice! For only Php 95, this was surely a good deal (especially when payday’s still a day away!)

Good To Be Back!

After a year or so, I’ve decided to revive my nearly defunct blog … same host, same ol’ flavor. What do I need to maintain this? — time and enthusiasm to post! Gotta get this goin’! Ciao!

Sweet Delight

Despite the odds we encountered on a holiday night e.g. being trapped in horrendous EDSA traffic, & being caught by the ever relentless "vultures" of the city streets ... we arrived in Timog Avenue to where our sweet taste buds got really excited!

Iceberg's never fails to amaze us sweet lovers. Jimmy ordered the Classic Halo-Halo, with all the good ingredients you can think of! Bo and I got to try their Caramel Flan Halo-Halo ... crushed ice, topped with luscious macapuno balls, sweet saba bananas and generous slices of leche flan, plus a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Oh I miss my Mom even more! Abbu and Badz got the Godzilla Grandslammer ... 6 scoops of ice cream (mango, avocado, strawberry, cookies and cream, cheese and ube), loaded with peaches, marshmallows, chocolate wafer sticks and whipped cream. Heaven! Nes had the Strawberry Parfait (I know you can just imagine how it looks like ... and how it tastes too!). Haaay! Dessert mania indeed. T'was worth the trip. :-P

Mother's Day with Friends

Mother's Day came by and went so fast! I can't believe it's been 2 years since the last time I spent that precious day with my Mommy. How time flies! I can vividly recall those moments when Mommy was here. I just miss her. Good thing I was able to celebrate it with my good friends. That night, we had dinner at Big Buddha in Greenbelt 3 Makati ...

Oh yes, we sat down the table, feasting on good food! That included our favorite Lemon Chicken... crispy, breaded chicken breast fillets, smothered with tart yet refreshing lemon sauce. We also had Stir-Fried Beef with Broccoli and Honey-Glazed Pork Ribs plus 2 platters of Yang Chow Fried Rice. That was really filling!

Indeed, I had a great dinner with my friends during Mother's Day. Though my Mommy's on the other side of the world, that night made me realize more that I still have a family here. Better late than never ... Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! :-P
