Lazy afternoon at the Bistro
December 6, 2013 • 7:30 AM • 0 comments
I feel so blessed to have friends who always check me out and make sure we keep in touch with each other despite the mad schedule and distance...that's why even though I feel so irritated with the fact that I paid 30 pesos to the tricycle driver just to get lost and spent 15 minutes contemplating whether to go back home or push through with this date... I still went to meet them because I terribly miss those ladies and I'm partially curious with the place MJ picked.
So let's start...I like the whole place. It looks and feels clean. It has simple/minimalist(?) interiors and the Christmas decorations are not overwhelming…plus I love the lighting. Too bad I didn’t take pictures. (read: still photography noob) I didn't have much time exploring the whole Bistro because I have a lot of catching up to do.
When I finally got there, MJ and Bea just finished their meal with a slice of choco java cake with vanilla ice cream. They quickly motioned me to sit down. Before, I order some food we talked a bit about my friend’s love dovey dilemma. It was soo cute to see her like that but at the same time agonizing because the guy is sooo bipolar like seriously kuya, ano ba talaga?
Chocolate Banana Pudding with Ice cream
I only ordered a glass of raspberry iced tea, chocolate banana pudding with ice cream, and their fries because I’m still full due to the large amount of orange chicken that I ate for brunch L Such a sad thing for me because Bea and MJ claimed that the food served at the Bistro is absolutely delish. They were like "Girl, sobrang sarap ng food. HEAVEN!" No one else compares ang peg.
If my friends are raving about their food then most absolutely ILB really is good with their fooood and yes I still feel bloated up to this time while typing this because seriously, they have big servings. Worth all the money you spent. SOBRANG SARAP!!! True to their words, My choco banana pudding is moist and not too heavy. It is actually soft and the plain vanilla ice cream makes it not too sweet. The bistro fries on the other hand is not soggy (thank goodness) and were made from real fresh potatoes. Love the sauces rin. Kris Aquino will approve! HAHAHA Yay!
Mj and Bea...no Jojo :(
We have happy tummies. Thanks to Irish Lloyd's Bistro! So sad, I don't have pictures with them (the woes of the one taking photos) So my verdict to this place? I like it so far... The staff is really nice and friendly and they have a super delish food. I will definitely recommended to everyone who wants to enjoy good food intimately with their friends. (I just hope they're consistent!!! haha)
Thanks MJ for the collage!
My friends and I vowed to come back here and taste every single thing on their menu. TAKE ALL MY MONEY! FORGET THE CALORIES! NOMNOMNOM

Hello Mr. Tony Stark
December 4, 2013 • 4:30 AM • 0 comments
Do you feel it? That festive feeling of giving and caroling and gift giving and non stop eating? because I do... and it's not only me. Everyone is feeling giddy. Lien started bugging out my mom to put up the Christmas tree, my mom and our helper already put some preliminary decorations and earlier, and everyone was sharing ideas on what would be our menu for that day and so on and so forth...
So yes, maybe it's pretty obvious that my favorite occasion of all time is already coming!
I don't usually list down my wishes for Christmas but it won't hurt right? I'm bored and I just rekindled my love for polyvore and started creating some sets of my wishlist :D
So Mr. Tony Stark. Mr. Santa, Mr. Genie, Mom and Dad, Friends, and Family... please without further ado. I give you my late UNOFFICIAL wishlist for 2013.
1. Trip to Bora-bora. Please let me stay and experience paradise for 3 days. Bora-bora is one of my target vacation spots that I'm dying to go to. I can't wait to chill under the sun, swim in the clear blue sea, drink blended tropical fruits and enjoy the pure white sand in my skin knowing that all of these are for free! hahaha. If you can't get me a trip to Bora-bora, it's ok if you'll get me to Maldives.
2. Yellow Camaro. The fifth gen one. Seriously, if you're gonna give me a car then let's get straight to the point. I don't want just any car, A yellow fifth generation Chevrolet camaro would be my preference because i really think Bumbleebee deserves to be with me. HAHAHA
3. Trip to Paris. After reading 'Welcome to the Underworld' my obsession with the city of lights grows more and more. I want to live there and experience the Parisian life, working in a city full of arts and love. who would say no? Tell me if you find Paris.
4. Godiva truffles. Chocolates are my one true love and seeing at this lovelies makes me drool. It's been years since I last tasted this. I never had any chance to try it once again because it's only available online and at Duty Free.
5. Michael Kors Gold Watch. Very classy watch by Michael Kors. You can never be late because you'll keep looking at it. jks. (I also love Casio's vintage watch *coughs*)
6. Iphone 5s...in gold baby. It's the new pink.Gold shows elegance and luxury that everybody wants today. I want this iphone 5s because of its exclusivity and security that you will never find in other phones. Altho LG G2 sounds very tempting today, Apple products are still considered as the best.
7. A baby tiger. I don't like cats but I love the big ones. Imagine this cute baby tiger
8. RYAN effing GOSLING I want him in my bed right NOW. For me, He deserves to be the Most Sexiest Guy Alive. (Damn you PEOPLE) He breathes sexy. He spells the word sexy. His deltoids are sexy. His abs are sexy. His eyes are sexy. His brain is sexy.
9. Galaxy Too damn lazy to rule the world. Why not rule the whole galaxy instead? multiple planets. anyone? :)
I'm just kidding with the above list. HAHAHA my real wishlist for this Christmas is this.
1.Love Sweatshirt 2.Studded Leather Duffel bag 3.Leather Skater Skirt 4.Make up brushes5. Majorlica Majorca Mascara6. Vintage Casio Watch7. Naked Palette 8.Sneaker Wedges
1.Iphone 5c in PINK 2. High Waist-ed Bikini 3. Sandals 5.Sunglasses

Quickie Post: Coconut Macaroons
October 13, 2013 • 10:17 PM • 0 comments
Macarons and macaroons are two different things. They look different, they spell different, and they taste different but my love for them are just the same. Between the two of them, macaroons are easier to make. That's why last sunday, My cousins and I made some.
It's difficult to make one when it's your first time .Dinaan na lang namin sa presentation! HAHAHA The sides are slightly burnt/toasted but nevertheless it still tastes good. Crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside. LOL You can dip it to melted chocolate if you want. <3 div="">3>
I'm actually practicing to make some for him but I don't know anymore. hahaha. He don't like sweet stuffs ata. like me :( chos!
Real UnliCHAT Experience with Globe’s GoUnli30
• 9:06 PM • 0 comments
I'm really having a hard time how to connect with my friends from all over the world. You see, I've met a lot of people online because I'm a global moderator in tinychat and some asian forums (hello fangirling!)
Anyhoo... To talk to them using regular postpaid plans are quite expensive. So I'm using different free messaging apps like Viber, KakaoTalk, and WeChat through wifi access.
We don't really talk 24/7 because that would be weird but did you know that I'm currently having a
I used to register to BBMAX for 5 days but I stopped because it's a waste. I don't really use BBMAX for the internet but for the messaging purpose only, besides at the end of the day I still go home where there's free unlimited internet for me.
So what to do?
DON'T FRET! DON'T CRY!
Globe has something wonderful for us!

If you still think that spending P30 is still expensive and you prefer talking to your friends through your messaging apps only, then use the UNLICHAT25. For only P25 a day, you'll have unlimited uninterrupted, and boundless access to your favorite messaging apps like Viber, Kakao Talk, and whole lot more!

Meet The Hawaiian Girl
October 12, 2013 • 12:39 AM • 0 comments
I used to be the Hawaiian girl with the flower tube top, straw skirt, poms-poms, and flower crown. That was 10 years ago and now say hello to the new generation of Hawaiian girl in our family! Meet Lien, my 10 year old gamer cousin who loves dancing, singing, and all that jazz.
My cousin told me to just come to her school at 9:00 am sharp because there will be a parade and I’ll get bored (she knows me so well) So nine o’clock am it is and OMG I’m so early like there’s no people except parents who are as lazy as I am to join the parade and some teachers preparing the stage for the event.
So instead of just sitting around and being bored. I ate some snacks and went checking out the whole area and I love this empty corridor. I think they should put more lockers for the students, wax the floor, and maybe more bulletin boards. Those artworks need some special space not just a metal fence :(
I love these artworks made of coffee. I don’t know how they do it but it looks nice. Painting with only one color is very tricky. In order for you to show depth, you need to be good in shading. It works magic! HAHA this is me trying to sound like an art critic. Anyways, I like the cute kawaii drawing.
On the other hand, there's a bunch of artworks made by using vegetable and fruit stalks by dipping it to water color and stamping it to paper. I like their vibrant color. It reminds me of summer!
I love my blue solemate flats and I hate my pants. It's too long for me. I tried folding it but it looks weird. I should really visit my tailor and cut this off.
So back to the story, I waited for a good 30 minutes frolicking around the campus until I heard the loud music from the school’s drum and Lyre Company. Hello horde of Zombies. Just kidding. So many people entered the premises I can’t even see my cousin. I see a lot of red floral dresses in the crowd. Thank goodness we’re both hungry and we think alike.
Lien was buying some cool pastries in a food booth. I tried everything from carrot biscuits to banana peel chocolate cookies but the only thing that made my sweet heart fall really bad were the chocolate tortes and the lemongrass juice
I’m trying to be a foodie blogger but you see…I just borrowed my camera (Canon D500) from Lien’s older sister and sadly, the autofocus function of the slr is broken L boohoo. So all day, I’m using the manual setting and it’s difficult because you have to mix and change the settings every single time depending on the lighting and the iso shizz, whatever.. You know, I’m not a pro photographer like my brother ( or my dad, and uncles lol)
My pretty cousin will dance the never dying ‘Pearly shell song’ I danced this when I was in gradeschool, her Ate danced this as well, maybe everyone of us have danced to this song but yeah… there’s only two Hawaiian songs I know. Pearly shells and the other one (I forgot the name tho)
I am sooo lazy telling you how the whole day went but to summarized everything. Every year level performed twice. One for photo op and the second one for the pure performance without the ogling of their parents and the others. I saw a lot of cute kids running while in their costumes
I saw Egyptians, traditional Russian costumes, some Filipino ethnic ones, Korean hanboks, and others. (I like last year’s UN Celebration because of the wide variety of costumes they used)
Stage Mamas, Ates, and Papas...friends, random people. LOL
So here’s my cousin’s performance. She looks so cute swaying her body and waving her hands with the flowers on her hair and on her arm and later she danced again because she’s a member of their school’s elementary dance troupe. Hoho!
Pearly shellsssss to infinity!
Haggard na si ate :))
I'm so hella tired. Like I took like 200+ photos, stood up for a couple of hours and panting from too much heat! eek. I can feel the sweat in my face. I took some selfie shots. Sariling sikap lang ang peg. LOL
So goodbye for now. Here’s my ugly self obligatory pictures. I hate my braces because it gives me a toothy gummy smile! >.<
Your forever Flower Girl ;)
QUICKIE POST: Shake that Shakey's
October 6, 2013 • 6:26 AM • 0 comments
It was raining so hard at that time. I was going to stay in my bed and spend the rest of the afternoon sleeping but my Mom told me we're going out with my Ate Gaihlee. At first, I was having second thoughts. I hate getting my feet muddy and I hate to commute when it's rainy but my Mom mentioned PIZZA. It was the bargaining chip of the deal. I've been craving for pizza for two days already!
So without any ado, I dressed up and dragged my Mom to meet ate Gaihlee at the nearby mall and despite the heavy rain, we hailed a jeepney and found ourselves standing outside SHAKEY's. It's the newest pizza place around our area and darn there's a lot of people.
One of the reasons why we're eating out that day was to celebrate Ate Gaihlee's 2nd monthsary with her Canadian based boyfriend, Kuya Jason. She insisted on paying everything! HAHA and yesh because we're so famish we ordered something that was good for 3-4 persons. One large Bacon something (I forgot the name) Classic Spaghetti, Fried Chicken, Hash Browns(?) and Banana Splits.
And of course we have to take obligatory pictures. Funny thing was, we were so full already that we didn't finished eating the entire pizza. I have no bad things to say to Shakey's Halang, Calamba.
So at the end of the day we went home with a happy tummy and happy hearts. Yeah and look how awesome my mum is. Maka-Look up kami diba? :)
The Verdict? You guys should definitely try Shakey's. I recommend this place for barkadas and family. It is sooooo much fun to eat pizza with your friends and family kasi may taga ubos at taga bayad ng food ;) I'll definitely bring my bestfriends here!
xoxo, TFG ;)
