Aaron asked me to get models for the Asian Dragon* shoot. Long story short, Adi and Kirby were asked to be in the shoot today held at the BoConcept building in Bonifacio High Street. I had fun just being a spectator while all of this was happening earlier.

Behind the Scenes:


  • Aw’s now the food columnist of their magazine. I do hope I’ll be able to tag along when he does the food reviews and all. Also, I pray that writing something for the magazine will push through :)
  • Met JJ who works for Asian Dragon and YOU magazine of Inquirer.
  • Hang-out around Serendra, High Street and Market Market with Adi until we were fetched. (Thanks for bringing me home!)

*Asian Dragon is an emerging magazine for and about the Chinese Filipino community. It is one dynamic and enterprising compilation about Tsinoys, in and around the Philippines, and their businesses, fashion, lifestyle, food, culture, and a lot more!

The 2008 Miss Universe comes to Vietnam for a night of stars and glamour in search of the most beautiful woman in the world! The winner for Best National Costume will be decided by online votes. So now, the main objective of this tag is to increase awareness for all Filipinos regarding the online voting. Let’s VOTE for our very unique Philippine National Costume worn by our representative, Jennifer Barrientos.

General Instructions:

  1. Go to THIS LINK!
  2. In the Menu Bar just above the thumbnail pictures of the delegates, click ASIA/AUSTRALIA.
  3. Look for the Philippines’ Costume (like the picture above & it’s actually in the page 2).
  4. Click its thumbnail.
  5. After clicking, a preview will then appear on the right side of the page. Click “SELECT THIS DELEGATE” located just below that preview.
  6. The bad things is, we are to choose 3 delegates! So be sure NOT to vote for those countries that will surely be a strong competitor for the AWARD! :)
  7. After choosing the Philippines and the “other” two countries, click on “SUBMIT VOTE” located just below the thumbnail pictures.
  8. Follow the SIMPLE instructions after that!
  9. You’re done! Go Philippines!

  • Add your blog link below as a proof that you are one of the TEAM PHILIPPINES!

After watching Mamma Mia with Kim, Beljo, Little Mawnster Kay and Ima Ned, we had dinner at Trinoma. (Aside: I think that Mamma Mia is a good movie. Abba music rocks! *right mawnster?* It made me laugh a lot of times, though Ima was filled with emotions because of the story.)

Since they all knew that I have already tried almost all of the restaurants there (because of the SPOT Tour a few months back), they were all pointing at me to decide where to eat.

No, we didn’t end up eating mawnster food, but instead, we finally decided to try Haiku. Kay treated us because it was her birthday! :3

We ordered the #3 Sushi-Maki Combination Platter. (I forgot the real name of the dish..) We also asked our server to put in some Crazy Maki, since Beljo and I really wanted to try it. Their Sushi-Maki platter was relatively good, though, for me, it wasn’t anything special.

I still love the salmon from Ebisu. We ordered Ebi Tempura (staple food in every Japanese restaurant?) It was big and better than a lot of Tempura I’ve eaten. Though Kim was saying that the sauce was a little bit too ginger-tasting, I liked it that way.

We also got the Ribeye Steak Teppanyaki (local) and the Scallop Teppanyaki (local). The beef was good. The scallop, on the other hand, was a little bit dry and not that fresh I guess.

This next dish wasn’t on their menu. It was a really yummy prawn and crab sticks concoction which, according to them, is their best-seller in their Makati branch.

It’s called something like Grilled Ebi-Kani. It was 5 large pieces of grilled prawns with kani and mayonnaise on top. We all enjoyed this dish. It was delicious because it was all fresh and it really melts in your mouth. One good point was that the mayo didn’t really overpower the dish.

Over-all my Haiku experience was very filling and one of the good Japanese restaurants around. One quibble though is that the prices of the food were a little bit steep.

Thanks a lot Kim and Beljo! :)

We surprised Chris Ng and Karol Yee last Friday night at Arcadia Clubhouse. Although they weren’t that surprised because of some people who slipped or wrong texted them, we sure had a lot of fun. People from CSA (old and new), MassComm, CLC, and their HS friends went.

I didn’t know that CSA people can also “party.” Fun! But anyway, I can say that that night was definitely a “night to remember forever.”

I also can’t believe how brave and daring Sarah and half of the CSA people, who were present that night, were. Fire, Drinks, Spirits, Plungers, and all that.

Needless to say, it wouldn’t be complete without the Sober Club, a mobile bar who spread their wackiness and liven up the despedida, and even got the non-drinkers drinking. The bar and their drinks were very colorful indeed.

Tiffy arrived later, and the night became more amazing… let’s just put it at that. To Karol and Chris, best of luck in Melby! :)

Here it is, if you want to see all of its cuteness…

In my frequent visits to Petron La Vista, Katipunan, I have dined in The Sicilian Express two times now. While I considered my first visit to be a disaster, today was pretty good.

Before, I ordered the Seafood Marinara (Pescatore) and the Creamy Chicken Soup. The soup was very thick and creamy with lots of chicken, onions,P1010088 and herbs, which came with two bite-sized bread sticks. I loved it. At that time, it was raining hard. The soup was served really hot, so it was a great filling experience. On the other hand, the pasta was a disaster. It looked like it just came out from the microwave oven. The taste wasn’t so great also.

Today, Blanch and I ordered a Sicilian Chicken Sandwich (Php 85) and a regular 10″ Cheese and Garlic Pizza (Php 210). The sandwich, which is one of the favorites of Reg, was surprisingly okay. Though the bread was smothered with this P1010088strong butter taste on the inside of the bread, the filling of chicken, tomatoes, lettuce and mayo was good, in the normal sense.

The pizza was their main attraction! The simplicity of the mix of cheese with garlic and a sweet tomato sauce base on thin crust definitely stole the show. Though the cheese didn’t really stand out that much, for what it’s worth, I like it. For me, this is a little better than the Quattro Formaggio I ate last time I went to Amici.
