Spanish adventure in Alqueria

We’ve been wanting to try a Spanish restaurant and so we decided to try Alqueria in SM Megamall. We even joke about that if I can’t be in Spain then at least we try a Spanish food and experience to be on that country. At first glance on a weekend past lunch time, the area is not too crowded (Ooma, the restau near it has a long lineup actually) and a bit small. We hate making your curiosity wait, below is the complete review on Alqueria dining experience.

Caseology Wavelength and Bavin 2-in-1 USB cable

I have recently ordered online these two accessories that we’ll be reviewing for today.

A. Caseology wavelength series for Iphone 6s plus. This casing has that premium feel, with its ergonomic design, slim fit but still very fashionable is what makes caseology a very cool accessory for your phone. Personally I like the grip on the hand, and its gold accent that compliments the blue back color. the buttons are crisps. For some though, price can be a little steep at P1000 or $25 USD, but I am telling you, you wouldn’t mind the price if you are picking for a good product. So thumbs up for caseology wavelength casing. This casing if not the top, but one of the bests in the market.

The PiliPinas debate 2016

It is a non-stop political talks and debacles as to who should take the highest post to run the country as we get closer to the national election. Everyone has their personal bet, but personally mine is still hanging and later on I will point out my reasons for that. So I am going to provide a review of the PiliPinas debate 2016 that took place yesterday at the Cagayan De Oro stadium, as impartial as possible.

Terry’s Belly Lechon and Chevy Burger

I have been buried with a lot of things specifically at work, and today I decided to finally put an entry. It is a must I put this late food porn post, as this will save lives…or not really. To the vegetarians out there, please excuse this post.

A switch to iPhone 6s plus (review)

I have been an Android fan for the longest time, I have used several phones like Samsung, HTC and LG, stayed with it for customization purposes. It took me 6 generations of iPhone to finally make the decision for an ultimate mobile switch. Don’t get me wrong, I have used Apple products like ipad/ ipad minis, but haven’t jumped to that phone level. So today let me talk about my iPhone experience (after a month of usage) with its latest features.

Zero Expectations

These past few weeks of self assessment and considerations, I keep on convincing myself that life would be so much better when I have less or zero expectations. Today is the avowal of that venture.

We had our soft launch at work last month and it has been ridiculously crazy with our work hours. It requires a lot of overtime and almost forgot we have our off days. Actually, I got converted to a typing cyborg. (more…)

Everything Pink

A few days off from work (Thanksgiving), got me some “me time” and today I decided to take a look at these two products I received today. If you have been following my blog for quite some time, you’d probably notice I seldom do lady product reviews. And if I do, either I have more time to burn or product is that great & worth sharing. So today I have Ofra Santa Monica long lasting lipstick and the Travalo classic perfume atomizer.

Frankie’s New York Buffalo Wings

This won’t be our typical restaurant review, we simply requested a take out on this one. It is just that the food is too good to skip posting. Frankie’s New York Buffalo Wings top my list when it comes to buffalo wings sold in the country. They offer different flavors and dips that goes well with the chicken. You can order for half a dozen at P188 or a full dozen at P348. What I really like is the taste even at the white portion of the chicken, as if it was marinade for a very long time. There are some buffalo wings that you only like the outside part of it, but the inside is too bland. That was never the case for Frankie’s buffalo wings. I haven’t tried all of their flavors, but will do soon. Blue Cheese dip + Honey Garlic wings is heaven.

Lugang Cafe: A palate afterthought

I get the chance to go out last weekend and it gives me an opportunity to visit a restaurant I’ve been wanting to go to for a food review. Lugang Cafe, is a fusion of Chinese & Taiwanese cuisine, and they are popularly known for their Xiao Long Baos.

AMBIANCE

I certainly believe in first impressions last and with the definitive feel and look that Lugang Cafe has, I feel I am an important customer when I enter their premises. Good lighting, eye catchy round tables, nice window side views, and as you walk (SM Megamall branch), they have this interesting mirror wall. Servers are in proper coordination, it is as if they are doing non stop roaming on all tables just to make sure you do not have to follow up your orders. That’s a plus for me. Their black tables and white chairs give that Yin-Yang vibe to the overall restaurant aesthetic. 🙂

Uber driver vs Passenger

You probably read the article in Facebook about this Uber (mobile cab service) driver and the rider incident. For those who haven’t read that, I am posting the statements from both sides and the surprising discussion that comes after that, lol.  All photo credit goes to When In Manila
