Food Trip in Malugay Street: Ara Korean Restaurant and Rocci Coffee + Chocolate

Last February 6, +Jomar+Mitch, and I were granted Korean Visa. To celebrate, we set forth to Malugay Street and had a good Korean dinner at Ara Korean Restaurant along Malugay Street in Makati City. It was not the best Korea place I've tried in the Metro. I still prefer the authenticity of Happy Han Bapsang in Ortigas, the ambiance of Maru in Jupiter Street, and the delicious food from Samgyupsalamat near De La Salle University - Manila.

After dinner, we went to the Korean grocery connected to Ara. Jomar and I were able to purchase frozen Korean dumplings (which I love) for Php 150.00. It's like Php 3.00 per dumpling. Amazing!

We had dessert in Rocci Coffee + Chocolate which is two stores away from Ara. They serve delicious pastries. I asked if they deliver since it's almost Valentine's when we had our desserts there, they said no. Too bad. I mean the food is really great and I have not heard of any rave about the delicious food they are offering.

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.

Let's help build a home for my birthday

My birthday is coming up (it's on November 8) and instead of gifts, I am hoping you could donate to Compassion.ca, specifically in helping Kenyan families rebuild their lives by providing stable homes. With Safe Housing, we can all make a difference in providing stable homes to 149 families in 11 centers across Kenya.



We all dream of having our own house. I know I do. But when we think about having our own home, we think about how many bedroom and bathrooms we want, what color scheme we will use on the wall, the style of our kitchen. Meanwhile, these families just want shelter from strong winds and torrential rain and I hope that we can make a difference.

For a minimum of $10 CAD, you will give me a birthday gift and we will help provide a home to this families.

Give a Gift

My fundraiser code is 8-10011711 so Compassion can keep track of this little campaign. Please feel free to share this short post to your friends and help me celebrate my birthday this year!
