Secret of Le Bar Galette at Sofitel Labels: cakes, food, sale | 3 comments»
Do you know the Secret of Galette - patisserie and chocolaterie at Le Bar Sofitel? I know... and I would love to share it to you, but let's keep it a secret from the commoners shall we? Hush, hush... You know you love it!
You may think that dining in Le Bar's Galette at Sofitel may be expensive more so with its particularly opulent ambiance...
Well, it is actually... Somewhat. But what you may not know (this is the part where I shall reveal the secret), everyday, after 7PM, all the cakes and pastries will be 50% Off. This so they will only serve the freshest pastries everyday. Amazing isn't it?
That means all these fabulous gourmet cakes will be under PHP 100. You can even dine there at Le Bar's Galette with a total damage of less than PHP 200. With Sofitel's perfect staff and the bar's perfect ambiance, who would not go here? This is way better than Starbucks, Figaro or even Cheesecakes, Etc.
So, I usually buy a lot of cakes here for 50% Off, cause I am a cheapo... somewhat. Now last night after my Korean Garden dinner, I ate Mango Cheesecake and Maraciabo (Chocolate) Cake. Yum!
I also took home the Opera Cake and White Blanche cake. That's the secret. Do not tell anyone.
We shall conquer the world!
You know you love it!

Figaro is my newest favorite place to go for lunch. I have always been a UCC fan, but I noticed Figaro has some a la carte offerings that shall satiate my gluttonous binge for a fraction of the cost. So, I went Figaro.
The Figaro a la carte offerings comes with either coffee or tea. You may also choose a pasta that comes with the meal. As for me, I love Pesto. See, what I usually order.
The other day, I ordered Tuscan Chicken with Pesto Pasta and Garden Ceasar Salad. The Tuscan Chicken is divine.
Today, I ordered Chicken a la Kiev with Pesto Pasta and Potato Wedges. The Chicken a la Kiev would have tasted better with more sauce.
I also always order the Five Cheese Pizza which I super love. This is a must try pizza - not so filling, but truly tasty more so if you add some tabasco chili sauce, then sprinkle some parmesan cheese.
My friend usually orders Chorizo Pasta and some salad. I never liked chorizo sausage though, more so if its in the pasta. Eewwiiee!
We then have the strawberry cheesecake for dessert, which is lovely, a real must try. Not sure though if that is it's name, did not check adamantly, forgive me.
All in all, it would only cost you around PHP 750 for these dishes. Truevali recommends you start lunching at Figaro too.

Boycott Krispy Kreme Eastwood!!! Labels: food, personal | 0 comments»
I think they are open let's say 18 hours a day? They have it delivered 3 times only. That means if I am just so unlucky, I will be getting those 6 hour stale donuts. So do you still want to get your dose of sugar in this branch? No thanks!

Spotted! Now here my review and my tips if you want to switch to Globe Telecom's Super Surf for Blackberry. Before reading this I suggest you read also our review on Globe Super Surf posted some weeks back.
The only difference between Super Surf and Super Surf for Blackberry is that obviously the later is used with the blackberry phone. Caution guys, it is not interchangable, cause the normal super surf uses a different access point, and the blackberry also uses a different one. So if you have Super Surf for blackberry DO NOT attempt to move your sim to another non-BB phone if you want to surf, cause you will be charged per KB since will access internet.globe.com.ph access point. At the same time if you have super surf only, if you put your sim in a bb phone, the bb service won't work.
So here are my steps so that you will be good to go with your emails in your new blackberry thanks to Globe's Super Surf for Blackberry.
1. Activate your Super Surf for Blackberry via the Globe business center or via 211 customer service in your handyphone.
2. If you are currently with Globe Super Surf only, have it switched to Globe Super Surf for Blackberry and remind them to waive the pre termination fee (remember that there is a lock in period of 3months).
3. Once activated, you will receive new service books to your new blackberry handset. Check your messages folder if you receive those service books. By this time you can now surf the net via the web browser.
4. To setup your email, go to the browser and blackberry homepage in your bookmarks. You'll see a link to setup your email. Click on email setup after that. After this, setup is now a breeze. All you have to do is to enter your username and password for the email service you have (yahoo, gmail, etc)
5. You can also do this in by entering your BB pin (you can search for this in the settings or at the back of your device) and IMEI (press *#06# to know this) Globe's blackberry site at http://globe.blackberry.com
6. In the event that it will prompt that 'your serice is blocked or suspended', immediately call Globe Customer Service to have your number be activated with the service. You don't even have to give your IMEI or BB pin. This also works for 2nd hand phone by the way.
6. Now you are all setup! You can now surf and receive your emails to your phone!
Disclaimer: this settings and procedures was tried only with a Blackberry Curve 8520

Cupcakes by Sonja at Serendra Labels: food | 0 comments»
The cupcakes here are superb. A sweet tooth's fantasy and diabetic's nightmare. They have alot of variety, they have chocolate, peanut, etc flavored cupcakes. What I really suggest you get is the Red Velvet. Yum!
They also have milkshakes and brewed coffee. Don't get the milkshake I suggest, or else you'll get the sugar rush of your life. I warn you also of their coffee; it is soo bitter! Well just the way I like it if I wanna wake up.
Cupcakes are priced OK for their quality. At 70 to 100 pesos, you'll surely smile.

By the way, their houseblend ice tea also sucks. I usually taste all houseblend ice teas, and so far, this is the worst. It was too sweet, almost like Nestea or Lipton.
The price was moderate. We paid almost 800 pesos for these dishes plus the 2 bottomless ice teas. Maybe you'll spend almost 300 per plate at this resto.

Cubao Expo Revisited Labels: culture, features | 0 comments»
Revisiting Cubao Expo was quite a thrill at first. Was reading few blogs last year about how they reinvented the former Marikina Shoe Expo to a cultural and exciting place.
But after yesterday, I didn’t feel any burst in my red cells when I was there. It was the same place yes, of course same layout, few new shops but overall SAME. I saw Manong making tinda green mangoes plus bagoong (which i love!, can i just say), there was the old Rusty Lopez and some few antique shops i already visited na before. But i just thought, what the hell lets make kain and libot!
I just got excited on Bellini’s! Well who wouldn’t be, diba? I had pasta with some friends after the libot which took around 30 mins, well 20mins spent in Janilyn fitting open toes and python wedges. HAHA!
But here are some eclectic yet good shops you can check out if you need good stuff from the Cubao Expo.
The Heritage: for collectibles and the “culture-culture” paintings, want to see a 3 inch coke bottle, it’s the place to be.
My Apartment; I think this was already featured in Urban Zone, they have good home chorva, colored steel cabinets etc.

Hermes in Greenbelt is Open! Labels: bags, fashion, hermes, landmarks | 2 comments»
We forgot to blog about this! Hermes in Greenbelt Makati now opens and, surprisingly, the opulent Filipinos flocked the store to get a hold of their Hermes, finally purchased in Manila. The word is Anton Huang was adamantly getting pre-orders from friends and contacts so the opening day will be exciting. True enough, it was a profitable launching day. We just love it. Hopefully the FGC will purchase another Hermes for their bag collection this 2010.
You know you love it!

Love Purple Labels: fashion, finglisuperstars, personal, shopping | 1 comments»
Good thing I amassed SSI's Purple Cards as gifts during this past break! And since I love pairing my purples with reds (very Tina Maristela-Ocampo), it payed for only half of my purchase. The other half? Happily obliged by my HSBC Red Mastercard! Aylavett! Swipe! Swipe! Swipe!
Purple Cards can be used for SSI stores such as Zara, Kate Spade, Lacoste, and Greenbelt 4 (except LV).
