Channeling Madonna and the 80’s

IMG_20170526_220014_b

Hello, I'm back!   Guess what I did during my month-long absence from blogging? Clue: Our office celebrated its 80th founding anniversary last week, where we had activities lined up for both employees and our stakeholders.  The most anticipated activity was of course the Employees's Night which took place last Friday (May 26) at the PICC.   The theme was the 80's, and ...

MINISO Japanese Lifestyle Store now open at Glorietta 2

IMG_20170325_193954_b

Japan's fast fashion lifestyle brand, MINISO, opened this week at Glorietta 2.  I passed by the store earlier (on my way home) and found lots of cute items that are perfect for gifting. I'm not a make-up junkie so I skipped the beauty counter, hehe. But I wasn't able to check out their stationery and paper section either (sayang!) because ang daming nagtitingin talaga. ...

The Good Stuff #8

goodstuff_food

The foodie in me strikes again! Here's another round-up of good food I've discovered (and re-discovered) the past months: Veal Cheeks Ravioli at Va Bene Pasta Deli.   A ravioli dish like no other.  Portobello mushroom sauce, veal juice and parmesan cheese makes up this ordinary looking but divine pasta dish. Dynamite Roll at Jipan. Since I discovered this ... READ MORE

An Afternoon of Stationery and Cupcakes

Jpeg

After months of searching, I finally found available Cath Kidston paper products at National Bookstore today! Saw these at their branch in Rockwell Powerplant, but I'm not sure if they're available in their other stores as well: But guess what?  I surprised myself by not buying anything!  Nalula kse ako sa prices nila.  I can't find one that costs less ...

Pylones and Cath Kidston Items at Daiso

Jpeg

I was at the Daiso / Saizen store in Glorietta earlier, and I couldn't help but be amused at these items I found that reminded me so much of Pylones and Cath Kidston (hence, the title of this post hehe!). Take for example these cleaning brushes in colorful floral design: They reminded me so much of the multi-tool hammer (in black) which I spotted at Pylones ... READ MORE

Cupcakes by Sonja now open at Glorietta 2!

P1080995b

Yehey!  Cupcakes by Sonja finally branched out of the Serendra Piazza in Bonifacio Global City!  It now has a branch at the newly renovated Glorietta 2 and I couldn't be more glad because it's now nearer our place! But I will definitely miss the smell of freshly-baked cupcakes and the  Cath Kidston prints from their Serendra store because the one at Glorietta 2 is more of a ... READ MORE

Food Post: Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant at the New Glorietta

P1060925b

Have you been to the new Glorietta Mall? It's so nice to see it open again!  It's more spacious now and looks like a big hotel. We were exploring this new mall last January when we came across Watami,  a casual Japanese restaurant located just outside the mall,  beside Holiday Inn & Suites.   I've heard a lot about this Japanese restaurant which is said to be the town's ...

A Sumptuous Birthday!

P1070005b

I celebrated my _ _th birthday last week in a very quiet but food-filled way.    It fell on a weekday and I took the day off from work so I can relax, hear mass and spend a quiet dinner with my family (which turned out to be not-so-quiet!).    I chose the newly-opened Watami at Glorietta 5 for my birthday dinner because it's new and  for a fully serviced Japanese restaurant, ...
