Homemade Banana Ice Cream

One things you should know about me is that I’m a monkey. I eat as many bananas as I can and I don’t get tired of it, especially if it’s sweet. Last January, Kate shared how she made banana ice cream and I just had […]

The Macaroni Week

Last week I was craving for KFC’s macaroni salad but I was broke and felt like I’d be tempted to order the chicken meal too if I went there. Since I’ve been thinking of trying out new things, I decided to make my own. The […]

Isaac’s Toast

My mom and I go to church in Victory Alabang in Festival Mall. One Sunday we were late for the noon service so we waited a couple of hours for the next one. I got hungry and tried the tuna sandwich from Isaac’s Toast. The […]

Chewy No-bake Cookies & Cream Bars

Browsing through Pinterest, I found a lot of no-bake recipes, most of them desserts of course. I wanted to try something really easy and found this recipe for chewy no-bake cookies & cream bars. Looks good, right? Ingredients: 1 (16-ounce) package of Oreo cookies5 cups […]

Making Dinner: Pre-made Meatballs in Cream of Mushroom

Cooking is not my strong suit. I can make what I call “cheat dish”, pre-made food cooked with some sauce, or basic Filipino dishes like sinigang, tinola or anything fried. I never learned how to cook because there’s no one to cook for. If I cooked […]

Icebergs Metrowalk and Uno Burger Banchetto

After months of planning on going to Banchetto, Mia and I finally went last Friday. Tin, Larry, and Ade recommended Uno Burger’s Forget-me-nut aka peanut butter burger. They said it was so good, you would forget your name. And try we did. But before all […]

L’Entrecôte, Igmaan and Quattro

Before the year 2011 ended, mom and I went out for dinner with her friend. We went to Igmaan, a restaurant in Dampa. The day before that, we had late lunch in L’Entrecôte. Now that happened last year, so why am I only blogging about it […]

Late Lunch at Tokyo Cafe

I went to the mall last December 20 to do some errands and I was starving as I haven’t had anything to eat since I woke up that day. I was thinking of having KFC since I was craving chicken but thought of eating at […]

KKK Food Revolution

Mom and I went out for dinner last week. I suggested we try something new, a restaurant we haven’t been to before. We were going around Mall of Asia when we saw KKK Food Revolution. My mom was in the mood for Filipino food so we […]

Experiencing Distrito

Last Friday, I invited my good friend Mia Lopez to have dinner/pig out in Banchetto, I posted it in plurk and asked other friends if they wanted to join us. Ade suggested that we meet in Distrito instead, it’s similar to Banchetto and it’s in […]

Chicharron ni Mang Juan

Mikey Bustos is one of the people I subscribe to in YouTube ever since I saw his Filipino English Tutorial. He posts a video each day, which I admire because it’s kind of hard to come up with a topic to talk about in front […]

Dinner at Conti’s

After shoe shopping and dropping by mom’s former colleague’s house, I mentioned that I was hungry and mom said “Let’s order chicken empanada from Conti’s.” I pulled over and she said “Would you like to dine in instead?” Of course I said yes! Any opportunity […]
