Mike and I visited the UP Town Center supposedly to have lunch there, but since we couldn't decide on a place to eat, we headed to Crazy Katsu in Maginhawa Street instead. No complaints here though, because Crazy Katsu proves that you don't have to spend a lot to eat great food. ;)
Just check out how happy Mike was with his miso soup (P30)!
I flew to Japan for two weeks in December 2011. I had been dreaming to go there for I don’t know how long already, and seriously, I just have to say, it was the most amazing trip I’ve ever been on. No doubt about it. The only downside is that we weren’t able to visit many tourist spots, but still, Japan is such a beautiful country. I hope I get the chance to visit again soon, especially during cherry blossom season (March/April). Below are some of the photos I took during the trip:
"It's the freakin' weekend, baby, I'm about to have me some fun!" - Ignition, R. Kelly
It has been a pretty hectic week for me, so I've decided that I'll be spending this weekend at home to work on my backlogs (yes, working on backlogs is fun). :) I can't wait to post about the stuff I got to do the last couple of days! Hope everyone's having a great week! xo
A day before our visit to our lola in Pampanga, I decided I'd bake her some cookies. It took me 3 hours to make 63 pieces (because I only used a square cake pan that fits 9 cookies at a time) and I missed lunch over these, so I'm glad they turned out well. :)
I really need to buy a proper baking sheet soon. /wrist
For a while now, I've been wanting to do something new with my hair. In the last years, I've had it bobbed, permed, relaxed, colored and re-colored. Recent salon visits, however, mainly revolve around getting my hair trimmed and the occasional treatments, and honestly, I'm getting bored with my hair. Haha. I figured maybe it was about time that I change it up again, so that's exactly what I did.
I eventually decided on getting a digital perm and lucky for me, Soirée Salon and Spa was there to save the day! :)
I woke up to a beautiful sunny morning, so I thought I'd share this lovely photo to spread the good vibes. The last two days have been amazing and I'm definitely looking forward to great things to come! Can't wait to see what tomorrow has in store for me :)
Exactly a month ago was my dad's birthday, and to celebrate, we had lunch at Pancake House!
My sister had been asking us to eat there to satisfy the pancake craving she's had for weeks already. And though I enjoy their pancakes as well, I felt like pigging out at the time, so I decided to order one of their special sets instead.
FEBRUARY 11, 2014 (UPDATE): Royal Lake Spa officially closed their doors last February 6 (Thursday). To everyone who still haven't claimed their Metrodeal vouchers, you may call their office at (02)823-1955 so they can refund you with Metrodeal credits or through your credit card. Hope this helps! :)
I'm trying hard to keep my promise to bake something new every week. So even though my experiments do not end up looking the way I want them to, I'm still going to post about them here. Like for instance, these S'mores Fudge Brownies (Smudgies) which I honestly had a difficult time taking pictures of. They did not look pretty, I tell you that. But I was really excited about them because they smelled really good in the oven and they came out perfect - crunchy on the outside but chewy on the inside. It was great because my parents liked them (FYI my dad is not a fan of brownies). My boyfriend's family liked them, too! His mom even asked him where he bought them. Teehee. *blush* But seriously, this is the only good photo I have of my Smudgies and I have no clue how I'm going to make them look better next time.
Oh well, I'll eventually figure it out. For now, I have my next masterpiece to discover. Haha! :P Happy Tuesday, everyone!
