Another Baby!!!

February 17th, 2011 by

A new baby of ours has been born!  Midnight Mercato!

Started last February 11 and hopefully, it would be a continuous midnight market in BGC.  Every Friday and Saturday night from 11pm to 3am.

This is the same venue as the Mercato Centrale.  Some of the concessionaires joined both Mercato Centrale and Midnight Mercato so hurry now to those who do not wish to wake up early but has the time to go out late at night.

Here’s some partners who are only in our Midnight Mercato…
Midnight Mercato Launch-25

Lavosh chips with variety of dips by Dinah Miro

Midnight Mercato Launch-31

I love takoyaki balls!!!!  Good thing I have 2 concessionaires to choose from :)

Midnight Mercato Launch-50

Angus beef tapa rice toppings..aya-yay!!!!

There are more food to choose from but I am just dependent of the photos taken by my hubby….and also, because I am trapped in my booth!!!!  The only good thing  about it is that I am being served with food! hahaha

I love having taho at night!!!!

I need to have pacing when I eat now because of this midnight snacks we have every Friday and Saturday night.

HB posted the Chippendales in his 14 Ideas for a Different Valentine’s in 2011
and thought if he would allow me to watch it with my girlfriends…

But nahhh, I would be the first to tell him that I’d rather spend time with the family or spend time pampering my self (which I need one soon!!!)…

Anyhoo, I’d just share this with you….is this their 1st time to be here in Manila?  I think not….2nd or 3x maybe…


Watch the Chippendales in Resorts World Manila.

Show dates are on 18 and 19 February 2011.

Valentine’s For A Cause

February 7th, 2011 by

Instead of spending so much for Valentine’s, why not donate your Valentine’s budget to give hope and life to Job? Be touched by his story; Job really needs our help to see more of the beauty of life here in the Philippines:

Job Tyrese, our first baby, was born in June 6, 2010 with BILIARY ATRESIA–a fatal, serious and rare liver disease that affects newborn infants (1 out of 15,000). 

At six months old, Job Tyrese’s liver–and life–is at risk. His disease is caused by his liver not having bile ducts. The bile ducts should help the liver drain out bile to pass it on to the intestines for digesting food. As a result, the bile is trapped inside his body and this will cause liver scarring and loss of liver tissue/Cirrhosis.

The solution the doctors came up with is through liver transplant. The only curative management for Biliary atresia. Unfortunately, the procedure can only be done in a hospital in Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong or USA. More importantly, the operation costs some P3 million to P4 million ($60,000 - $80,000) specifically in Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan.

For more information, visit Hope for Job Tyrese : A Chance to Live, a fund-raising campaign to make Job’s liver transplant possible.

No matter how much you give, it will surely bring Job a long way :)

Happy Heart’s Day to All!

HB has been lurking and waiting for this place to open.  When we saw it was opened, ta-da…we scheduled a meet up with a friend.  Yes, HB had an excused to try this out!   Been itching to go out and discover some new restaurant before he leaves for an out-of-town trip soon!


Chef Mikko’s Buffalo Bacon Chicharon (P285 +10% service charge).

Nyikes!  Bacon na chicharon pa!  The real bacon!  No fat!  Not a fan of bacon…you guessed it right…the obvious fat!  Urgghhhh!  Hard to burn!  Might as well, avoid eating such kind of food…

This was indeed a sight!  Crunchy to the max!


The Caprese Tower (P350 +10% service charge). Pesto-marinated Tomato, Arugula, fresh Laguna White Cheese.

Thinly sliced tomato..thinly sliced white cheese…I want more!!!


The Jerk Burger (P475 +10% service charge). USDA Choice Sirloin Patty, Jamaican Jerk spices, Orange and Red Cabbage Slaw.

Looks yummy…crunchy bun!  Medium well sirloin patty! Fries was perfectly fried.  There was not a single limpy fries…stood out proud!

Sir J, was it worth it? :)


Benjamin’s Skinless Chicken (P495 +10% service charge). Note: For the health-conscious. Honey Mustard Chicken (without skin) with pan-fried Green Onion Polenta.

I liked that it was healthy :)  Then sweet because of the sauce but needs more marination of the meat.


Weedge’s Lamb Shepherd’s Pie (P435 +10% service charge). Lamb Stew, Creamed Potato, melted Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

I think everything about this place is the CRUNCH!  The chicharon, the bun, fries and now, the top of this shepherd’s pie had a crunch!  Yum!  The meat was shredded to allow smooth spooning of the pie — no need for a knife.


2nd floor…you can see it while you drive by…intimidating at first but cool and comfy once you step inside the place.
