The Sri Lanka Adventure

Day 1 - Manila-Singapore-Colombo My adventure started with our flight to SQ919. Singapore Airlines. It was the first time I am flying via the airline, and they have in-flight entertainment and a full meal. I am seated beside  +Benj  and  +Almondyseth . I watched 2 episodes of Family Guy, watched Maleficent for the third time, and was watching Big Bang Theory when we were about to land in Singapore. After less than 2 hours, we were in our flight going to Colombo, Sri Lanka. I fell asleep as soon as I sat in the comfy seats of the plane. I woke up when the food arrived. I started watching The Lego Movie (yay for in-flight entertainment). In the middle of the movie, I fell asleep, and the stewardess turned off the monitor of my film. Upon waking up, we found ourselves in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Day 2 - Google Community Asia Summit 2014, Day 1 Buffet breakfast. Keynote. Google I/O 2014 Updates. Lightning Talks. Buffet Lunch. Unconference. Gala night. Dancing. Huge seafood. Sleep... ye

SM Makati Food Trip: Bibimbob Express

SM Makati has been doing a lot of renovations the past few months, and the first part that got completed is the newly renovated supermarket and food court in the lower ground floor of the mall.  +Jomar Tigcal  and I said we would try all the stalls in the food court and the first one is Bibimbob Express. Large Chicken Bibimbob (Php 119.00) The thing about the new food court is that the stalls offer more expensive food than before the renovations. As we walked around, I noticed that the food they are selling (on average) costs more than Php 100.00. Anyway,  I liked Bibimbob. The way they presented the food would remind you of Pepper Lunch. We also ordered the Korean Dumping (Php 55 for four pieces), and it was way too oily. Can't wait for our next food adventure! Happy eating!

All-Time Fave: Giligan's

When I have those bad days, I often crave for a feel-good meal (usually during dinner). On top of my head, I would always choose, Giligan's, specifically their Kare-Kareng Gulay! I've been to their branches in Greenbelt 1, Glorietta 5, SM Megamall, TriNoma, Robinson's Galleria, and SM North EDSA.

Review: #DoubleyourLove in Pancake House

I love Pancake House!  +Jomar  and I had lunch in Pancake House (Makati Medical Center branch) today and tried the #DoubleyourLove promo which serves two plates of their Spaghetti and Taco plus iced tea only for Php 350.00. It was a decent deal. My usual order in Pancake House is the House Special Set (spaghetti, taco, chicken, and iced tea) so I was happy to be eating both the spaghetti and taco. As an additional, we ordered 2-piece chicken with rice. Hehe. Gutom. Be sure to try the #DoubleyourLove promo of Pancake House! =) Happy eating!

Food Trip near La Salle Taft: Exile on Main Street

+Joshua  has been raving that we try this restaurant along Leon Guinto Street, walking distance from De La Salle University-Manila. Last August 16 (Saturday), we (+Jomar, +Wayne, and Mitch) gave it a shot. We went there a little before 6:00 PM, and thankfully, we arrived at that time! There's a board games night (every Saturday from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM) organized by a group of people so the place could get noisy and crowded during Saturday evening. According to Josh and his friend, it's not usually like that. The Service The service is okay. The waiter who served us didn't smile at all. He also looked tired and impatient. At first, I was a bit disappointed by that, but I just told myself that it's okay. I mean, I could imagine how tired he might be running around getting and serving orders from all the people inside such a small place! Still, the service could have been better. The Food What it lacked on service, it compensates with the yummy food.  +Wayne  h
