YAYOI PH: Easily one of the best Japanese restaurants I’ve tried.

I recently got invited to the launch of the first Philippine franchise of Yayoi Ph. The experience was a sweet, “techie” one, what with their cool ordering system (it’s via I PAD, sooo cool!). The restaurant features simple wood, utilitarian interior. I wish the restaurant were bigger and more spacious, but that’s only because I’m a fan of big spaces. The restaurant did a good job of making use of the space they had. The […]

The joy of a purposeful life

Food For Thought / Literary / Uncategorized

“Two of the ultimate gifts that one can experience in life is: 1.) discovering your purpose; and 2.) celebrating it.” Growing up, I was sort of a romantic-idealist. I thought that life was similar to a Disney movie, where everything came easily and instantly. This made me overly optimistic and slightly naive in dealing with things. I graduated college thinking that I could do anything if I worked hard and prayed. Needless to say, that’s […]

  It’s been almost 3 months since I’ve been consciously working on getting in shape. 2015 was a bad year for me in terms of health and fitness. Needless to say, I gained a lot of weight. Eeeek! My clothes started “shrinking” and before I knew it, I couldn’t wear more than half of my wardrobe. ENOUGH! One day, I decided that this wasn’t me at all. Since, I have a background in dance,  I’ve […]

Who doesn’t love a good buffet? One of the trade-offs of availing buffets is the price (Wallet cries during bill time!). This is why I was excited to know about the restaurant, 7 Flavors, located at the heart of San Juan. The restaurant is backed by the kitchen know-how of the acclaimed Chef Boy Logro. The restaurant’s interior is casual and unintimidating, still it has a classy feel to it. They also offer small function […]

I have been a JADINE fan since On the Wings of Love. It is the only Filipino television series I’ve been emotionally invested in. I have been wishing for this love team (real life couple also! ) to be given a semi-mature movie as well so when I found out about This Time, my heart did a somersault. Could this be the movie us JADINE fans  were waiting for? Watch the trailer below to find out the premise of […]

  The Philippines has a wealth of talent in the arts—from dancing, acting, writing, and singing. Singing is particularly popular in the entertainment industry, only because there is so much talent and diversity. While it is tough to standout in a country with so many talented singers and performers, these elite group of divas—Kyla, Rachelle Ann Go, KZ, Angeline Quinto, and Yeng Contsantino—did just that. This November 11, 2016, they will be holding a one-night-only […]

Captain America: Civil War

*CONTAINS SPOILERS* There has been a lot of hype for Captain America: Civil War. The trailer was very engaging, captivating people left and right, but what about the movie itself? IN MY OPINION… If you’re a fan of crossovers or semi-melodramatic superhero films then this film will most likely appeal to you. Marvel is one of the franchises that can make me watch action movies, and while I wasn’t on my toes the entire screening […]

The name itself is inventive and interesting, but how does the food fair? I love trying out restaurants and discovering new places for birthdays and get-togethers. This one particularly excited me. Find out how The Frazzled Cook experience turned out. This cute and quirky restaurant is an Instagramer’s dream. A lot of things in the restaurant were gotten from antique shops and travels.

  “To love another person is to see the face of God.” Jean Valjean Les Miserables has been touching the hearts of people all over the world…and now it has finally reached the Philippine shores. My heart soared when I heard that they were coming. Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough budget to get a good seat in the front, but there was no way I was going to miss it.  My seat was literally at the backmost […]
