Krung Thai Marikina

I’m not very knowledgable when it comes to Thai food. The only thing I like is pad thai, a noodle dish with a sweet, peanut-based sauce, bean sprouts, tofu and chicken. I had my first taste of Thai food in Tagaytay Highlands, and have yet to find a place that matches the experience I had […]

Welcome to Monsee’s

White Plains is a familiar territory. During my elementary years my dad would take that road to get me to school. I grew up seeing the familiar landscaping businesses on one side, the pretty houses on the other and the man selling kesong puti at the end of the road. It’s changed so much over […]

Getting lost in Binondo

Finally, our plans of going to Binondo pushed through. Aldekari has been planning on this trip for a long time, but for some reason or the other, we never really got to doing it. Sunday was our day, and despite a few setbacks, we were off. Our transportation of choice was the jeepney. We met […]

I’ve never really spoken to her before, but Lorna […]

Food trip: Sambokojin Yakiniku

Last Thursday turned out to be food trip day. The guys decided that they wanted to try out that new smokeless grill place above Something Fishy in Eastwood called Sambokojin Yakiniku Smokeless Grill. We’ve been seeing the ads about it for quite some time now, and we thought it would be nice to give it […]

This month’s event had fewer booths, but had a cosplay and auction activities in partnership with Cosplay.ph. I met Ryan, then with Drew. Nothing much […]

Saturday again

Fourth October Saturday with friends. Tally: Drew – 4, Ryan, Fristine & Lornadahl – 2, Joiz, Shabby/Marsha, Den & Ching – 1 each. New people I met: Fritz and Yue. October rocks, although next week’s pretty much reserved for family. I’m going home to Zambales! Finally got together with Den and Ching. We haven’t seen […]
