Popo, Hetty, Jollibee, Twirlie and Yum

Last Wednesday, I was at the JolliTV Launch held at Rockwell Tent. Ajay and Nina was also there at the event. πŸ™‚ I was able to take a sneak peek of the first episode of JolliTV which will air on April 13, 9:30am at GMA7. Of course, I won’t be giving any spoilers. Hehe. πŸ˜€ Continue reading “At the JolliTV Launch”

I was there with Sharlyne at 5am. Guess what? We’re the 259th and the 260th customers. πŸ˜€ Continue reading “At the opening of Krispy Kreme Ayala”

Jumbo Japs

Kamameshi

While we were in Gateway, we’ve decided to try out Jumbo Japs, a fastfood Japanese restaurant. Well actually it isn’t my first time, I just made Karla try out their menu. The only Jumbo Japs branch I go to is in Gateway Mall, Cubao since it’s the nearest to my location. One can say that this can be a competitor of Tokyo Tokyo but this is a little different from them.

Summer Recommendation 1: Ice Monster

Strawberry Ice Monster

It’s already summer. The scorching heat instantly reminded me of the movie Temptation Island. The scene in particular is a giant scoop of ice cream on a cone found in the middle of a deserted island which is actually a hallucination. Anyway, I think I’ve had enough of ice cream. How about having something fruity and a taste of 400 BC? Continue reading “Summer Recommendation 1: Ice Monster”

I guess some of you went to an easter egg hunt. I, myself have experienced it a long time ago. I also made one too. πŸ™‚ I’ve found this picture on Flickr which I find very timely since the easter egg decoration is creative. It does not stick to the usual easter egg decoration using dyes.

Korean Express is a fast food restaurant. It has a branch in Glorietta 4 Food Choices and I’m not sure if there are other existing branches. First, what is Bibimbap. Bibimbap is a popular Korean dish that is served in a bowl of warm rice topped with sauteed and seasoned vegetables, beef, sunny side up egg and chilli pepper paste (gochujang). Anyway, the picture above is not exactly what Korean Express is offering. Continue reading “Let’s go Korean with Korean Bbq Express’ Bibimbap”

Seattle’s Best Coffee: now brewing in Greenbelt 3 Makati

I guess the title says it all, at last, a Seattle’s Best franchise was just recently re-opened in Greenbelt 3 Makati after renovating it. It’s just opposite Starbucks. Now, coffee addicts are distributed. After dinner last night, we hung out there and ordered Javanilla and Java Chip Javakula. I must say that Javanilla is really my favorite πŸ™‚ . I was impressed with the place because there is much more tables and chairs outside compared to Starbucks, which is always filled with people (This is a plus factor for smokers πŸ˜‰ ) They have big couches outside, big enough for a barkada or a business team to have their chit chats. Karla and I tried it last night, even though it’s just the 2 of us (well, it’s a weeknight and there aren’t many customers anyway). It’s really comfy, I felt like I’m just at home. You might snooze a little when you’re there ;p . It’s so comfy, even the stray cat was like waiting for us to move out so that he can have his turn there hehe.

The Conveyor Belt Sushi at Genji


Conveyor system for sushi in a Japanese restaurant in Croydon, England

The video above that you are seeing right now is actually similar to the one in Genji. The restaurant is located in Greenhills and is a must-try for those who haven’t eaten there yet. The plates on the conveyor belt are color coded and each color corresponds to a price. It was my first time to try one and I was pretty amazed of the ingenuity of Yoshiaki Shiraishi, the inventor of the conveyor belt sushi, otherwise known as sushi train [source].
