Where did the banana and apple come from?

So I just had to divert myself from continuously thinking about shoes, Christmas and a school paper due tomorrow. Thus, food must be my last resort.

Earlier this evening, my dinner date with Nixie, Leah, Patty and Mich finally pushed through  after weeks of continuously planning which seemed to never get through our different schedules. It was in one restaurant in Katipunan which was undoubtedly not unnoticeable when people pass through the area. For one, its exteriors is very inviting with that castle-ish style and with the fact that its parking area is always full! Then I wondered what's this thing about Banapple Pies and Cheesecakes. 

While waiting for Mich. Nixie, Leah and Patty!

We ordered our respective food from this cozy counter. This menu isn't complete though. They have this separate one which they give out upon entering the restaurant.

Baked Creamy Cheesy Penne (P185)

Fettucine Jacinta (P170) 

Fetuccine Magnifico (P170)

My order: Banapple's House Salad (P135)

I missed you, Nixie!  

...and Mich too... and everybody else! 

Yay! Hello, Mich :) Just in time for dessert! 

After eating our main courses, the usual chika-han session about random things went over for around two hours. And then Nixie and I finally decided to order a slice of Santa's Chipper Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake:

Despite its long name, this scrumptious slice was definitely worth it! We can't even breathe properly with what we've all eaten. 

I swear we had a hard time choosing which slice of cake we should buy! 
Next must-try: Potion Cake!  


Of course, we wouldn't miss that obligatory group photo! :)

Over-all, Banapple is one of the restaurants which I consider to have really reasonable prices with commendable amount of serving! The waitresses were also very accommodating and friendly. However, there were times when people ordering from the counter cause the lower floor to be somewhat crowded. Then again, their servings and reasonable prices were able to make up for all of it! I should definitely go back soon.

This should be the first of the semi-gluttonous holiday that I'm expecting to have. Haha!
Happy December 1st! :)

What's a girl to do other than wish?

The Christmas feel is absolutely in the air! As for that, a wishlist should be good, eh? :)

Jeffrey Campbell's Night Walk! 
I swear I'm even dreaming about these for weeks already!

With 50mm lens na din, please? And tripod? Hahaha chos

Peppah Lunch

I know most of you have heard about those free restaurant dine-in or out options when you shop with your credit card and it's probably the nicest thing next to the fact that you're... in debt. Then again, it's food that we're talking about here and might as well make the photos do the talking! :) 

Just for a brief story-slash-explanation, yesterday I was off to a Saturday family day --- a first one for the longest time --- at SM Megamall (yes, again! Hmm.. it seems like just yesterday that I've gone there). When my mother told me she's got those free stuff for Kenny Rogers, Pepper Lunch, Häagen-Dazs among other ones, I hurriedly convinced them to eat out for lunch thus:

Shake! Shake! Kani Salad -- my mother's
(I find that Shake! Shake! part really awkward. Haha)

We had two meal options and ordered them both! 

Teriyaki Pepper Chicken

and Teriyaki Beef Pepper Rice with fried egg

The past two days have been quite refreshing 'cause I managed to somehow catch-up with both my friends and family. 

Happy Sunday, everyone! :)

PS: I've been too "conscious" of carrying my camera lately...

You're so Peri-Peri...

Ola! Welcome aboard to Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken! :) 

My Fridays are typically made up of being a couch potato and starving myself because of laziness. Yes, one day, this inactivity will finally eat me up alive. Haha, I'm kidding. Well, except for times of chillaxation (wtf), parties and close-distanced events, I'm usually kicking. Chos lang, echuserang party girl ang peg ko tonight! Hahaha

SO! Moving on, last Friday I had a very nice dinner with two of my closest college friends-slash-blockmates, Irmay and Enchees at Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken, Megamall. 

The place was seriously jampacked at 7PM! 

Irmay's chicken with carbonara 

Enchees' chicken meal

 ...and my grilled chicken salad! 

Plus, that "soup and drinks all-you-can for P49" was totally worth it... at least by observing them. Haha! But seriously, everyone should try eating out at Peri-Peri for once. 

Hospitable waitresses/waiters, check! Savings friendly, check! Ambiance, check! And finally...

"Eto na yun. Mura na, malaki pa serving!"

Hello, world! 

Bloggers United II!

Manila’s finest fashion bloggers will leave their laptops at home once again to attend BLOGGERS UNITED BAZAAR (Part 2)on December 3, 2011 at Treston International College, Taguig, this coming holiday season.

It is the second installment of the first-ever Bloggers United: An Interactive Shopping Affair (link your past entry if you like), which was held last May. Due to insistent demand from readers and bloggers alike, Bloggers United( team in partnership with the country’s largest online shopping website, Multiply Philippines ( have gathered Manila’s fashion bloggers to sell their pre-loved but very stylish closet pieces!

This event is the perfect opportunity for both bloggers and their adoring readers to mingle and personally interact with each other. Fun contests and exciting giveaways from sponsors and entertaining performances from bloggers (Walkie Talkies, Reese & Vica) themselves will definitely keep this event from being a dull one.

Some of the notable bloggers attending the event include Divine Lee, Laureen Uy, Kookie Buhain, Lissa Kahayaon, David Guison, Karl Leuterio, Patricia Prieto and Preview Magazine’s own Daryl and Andre Chang.

But because Bloggers United wishes to go beyond the geographic limitations of the archipelago and extend its reach beyond Metro Manila and so for this event, they are flying in some of Cebu’s very own fashion bloggers which include Kryz Uy, Eden Villarba, designer Yves Camingue, Gillian Uang and Mildred Zapanta and a few more.

Part of the proceeds from this event will go to the GMA Kapuso Foundation ( for its school building project, a small but significant step to improve the Filipino youth’s access to education.

The organizers behind BLOGGERS UNITED BAZAAR (PART 2) are Ana Gonzales (, Melai Entuna ( and Aisa Ipac (,  a team of blogger friends encouraging camaraderie and sense of “community” among Manila’s (and eventually, the country’s) fashion blogging community through events and productions like this.

This is a one-day-only event that you shouldn’t really miss! It will be in a bigger venue with twice more the number of participating bloggers to meet! This is the perfect shopping day this Christmas because the most affordable and most fashionable clothes, accessories and footwear will be up for grabs. See you!

Bloggers United is in partnership with:
Multiply Philippines (
GMA Kapuso Foundation (
Treston International College (

Event is co-presented by:
Meg Magazine (
When in Manila (

In cooperation with:
Xend Business Solutions (

Special thanks to:

Online Shop Donors:
Shop Dainty (
F-STOP (Fashion Stop) (

Location Details:
Treston International College
University Parkway District, 32nd Street corner C-5 Road
Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila Phillipines

I suggest commuters to take the bus bound to Market! Market! from the BGC Bus Terminal. You can find the terminal when you turn right as you get down from the MRT-Ayala Station! You guys might wanna check out a more detailed route over at the blog of the Fashion Commuter herself here.

Now who's excited?

Shindangdong Makati x Tous Les Jours

Shindangdong might've been your typical Korean restaurant in Makati but then again, I thought, what certainly set it apart from others was that there are tons of photographs who dined in at the restaurant from that certain time. Plus, that noticeable "to try: tteokbokki* with grated cheese" written on a white board made me definitely want to try the dish!

*tteokbokki = Korean spicy ricecake stew

The waitress there cooked the tteokbokki for us and some ingredients were rice cakes, fish cakes, ramyeon noodles, eggs and chili powder (they chose the "regular spicy" flavor for this).

The group can't certainly miss an order of kimbap! :)
Takoritang, a Korean spicy chicken stew.
Same as the tteokbokki except for the eggs and ramyeon noodles.
For every KDrama/Hallyu Wave fan, Tous Les Jours might've been the bread shop you've been seeing for quite a couple of times in various dramas and one of which is the some-kind-of-musical drama, Dream High!

One word: FIERCE

While I may be so ignorant and outdated of the online world during the last few days because of the inexistence of an internet connection in our new home, I had the opportunity to have a photoshoot with the awesomely confident photographer-slash-model Pauline de Asis. Together with her are the kalog and model friends, Jane and Grace. It's basically for the "I Choose Tattoo" Globe Tattoo Contest. At stake are cash prizes and.... a billboard! I'm running more for the cash prize, though. Hohoho.

I, honestly, put in so much effort to be not conservative with this (haha) and without further ado!
