Crepe Amelia

This was when everything wasn’t complicated and when OT is life (for me, since OT is still life for them. HAHAHA!)

This happened last January 2016, we decided to hang out here after dinner. I honestly forgot what happened that time and what are the tastes of their food and shakes. I just know that, there are better shakes out there to try. But since it was an impulsive decision and another time to spent with them and I think it was worth it.

Service : ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7 out of 10)
Food : ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ (6 out of 10)

Crepe Amelie is located at the ground floor of A Venue Mall. The crews were nice plus they don’t mind that we were a little bit (or super) loud! Hahahaha!

The store was cute. I like how they write the calligraphy. It was really nice. The place was clean too.

I don’t know what we ordered but I think it was a caffeinated shake. Plus I love that they serve the shake in mason jar. Love mother nature right? Hahahaha!

Till next time!

Halomango in Boracay

I haven’t been reviewing for a long time. I think my last review was April 2017. I’ve been blaming myself for not keeping my promise and for not updating this blog. I have been very busy since last year. The pregnancy, business, work and being a mother, who will find a time right?

So now that I have little free time, let me review Halomango in Boracay.

Service : ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ (5 out of 10)
Food : ★★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆ (4 out of 10)

The store was overrated in my opinion. We thought that what we were having was good since the line was too long. Good thing (or not) that we have time to spare so we lined up just to have their famous mango holic.

The service was better than their food. The crews were nice. They were insisting that I should sit down as they provide a monoblock.

The place was a little bit small considering the customers lining up outside the store. I should suggest a bigger place or arrange the place to maximized the space.

I didn’t like the refreshments they are serving, I think there are better food out there. (waiting to be discovered! lols!) But honestly, I don’t think that the time we spent lining up was worth it. We ordered mango holic and mango shake. The mango is sour, plus the ice cream has an artificial mango flavor. The refreshments are nakakaumay to think that I like mangoes. Also, It is a little bit pricey for my liking.

Overall, Thank you for the experience but if you will ask me to dine here again, I would say, Thanks but no thanks.

Till next time!

Xoxo,

Nadai Fujisoda

Hi guys! I know, I know, I am MIA for 4 months or so. Sorry for that! Really sorry.  To make it up for you, I will post 2 blog entry for today! Yey! So here’s the first one.

Last January, we ate at Nadai Fujisoda in MOA. This is going to be a short review since you know me, I can’t remember the taste of the food especially when it is 6 months or so ago. I may not describe the taste of the food in details but I’ll try to make this review a worth reading.

Last January, I am not the person who I am today! (lols! I’m getting old!) I’m not talking about maturity here, ladies and gents. I’m talking about how I am with food!!!! lols.

Before, I am really choosy when it comes with food.  I’m not really into Chinese or Japanese food. I don’t like Chinese food other than siopao, siomai, mami or any kind of noodles  🙂 I also don’t like Japanese food other than tempura. Who wouldn’t like tempura right? So yeah! I am not that person who’s really choosy about food. I changed! yey!

Thanks to my officemates who loves eating Ramen and those kind of stuffs because of them, I am reborn! lols!

Service : ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7 out of 10)
Food : ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ (6 out of 10)

The staffs are really nice here and very accommodating. Though, I would like to add that some were not really as experienced as most of them but hey, I think it is because they just opened way back in January so they may more experienced today than before.

The food was okay. Not really great but okay. Since, I didn’t like other Japanese food before so I just ordered tempura and my mom ordered a Ramen. Also, because my brother is a sucker of all tempura, we ordered just for him! It turned out that my tempura was better than what he ordered. lols! I didn’t know why mine taste better than him but I think, it is because of the sauce. My tempura came with a rice so I think it is because they drizzle mine with the sauce while if you ordered 3 pieces of tempura, it is just plain.

I didn’t taste any food other than my what I ordered since as I said a few times already in this entry, I’m not really into a Japanese food before. My mom said that the Ramen was good (and so was the price. She ordered a Teishoku set)

I apologized on how the pictures are. I forgot to rotate it before uploading it on wordpress. I forgot how are my steps before uploading it on wordpress. Blame this on not blogging for 3 months!!!!!

So what do you think?

Comments are love.

P.S. I just love how my eyes popped here!

Cafe Seol Hwa

I tried soel hwa cafe together with my officemates last November.

This made me happy because you know me, I love everything cold and with iced or frozen. So this is two thumbs up for me 🙂

Service : ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7 out of 10)
Food : ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7 out of 10)

We ordered mango cheese bing su and choco brownie bing su.

I ordered the for-share (I forgot the name :P) choco brownie bing su. It can be share for 3-5 pax. It depends on how a person consumed a meal.

I have something on the mango cheese bing su because I expected it to be sweet but the mango turned out to be sour. Maybe because November is not a mango season but I just hope the mango was sweet because for sure my rate will be different 😛

I love the choco brownie bing su because of two things. It is chocolate and it has ice! I didn’t touch the ice cream because my I was ogling on the crushed ice.

Review: Buffet 101

This year’s a full of adventure and food. If you are following me on Instagram you already saw what this year has been to me.

Last August, I’m not the only one who turns a little older, I have my two other friends with me.  We celebrated it in Buffet 101. They said that it has the longest buffet table. And what they say is true. Buffet 101 also has more dessert choices than any other buffet restaurants I’ve been.

Service : ★★★★★★★★☆☆ (8 out of 10)
Food : ★★★★★★★★☆☆ (8 out of 10)

The place is clean and nice. I love the interior of the place. It is so classy. I like how the crew smile every time you pass on their designated positions.

I love how they have lots of food to choose from. I like what I’ve eaten though I forgot them all. Hahaha! Forgive me please. this reminds me that I should post immediately after eating since these days I can be forgetful! I think the three shots of anesthesia during my labor and delivery of my son are now effecting my mind or I’m getting old. (hahahhahahha! shhhh!)

Since I really don’t like Japanese foods aside from Ramen, Tempura and other fried Japanese food, you might guess that I didn’t eat those Maki, sushi and the like. Well, you guess right! lols.

I may forget all the food I’ve eaten that day but I won’t forget the experience and the moment. This might be the first time that our team bond. and we’re almost complete. Thanks to the August celebrants for treating us all. 🙂

Review: Charaptor Makati

This event happened last September. One of our officemates treat us dinner at Charaptor Makati. I didn’t know what to expect since it was my first time in a grilling buffet so I open my mind for possibilities. Hope for the best expect for the worst.

Sorry for the poor photo quality.

Service : ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7 out of 10)
Food : ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7 out of 10)

The service here is great. I was the first one to arrived here since the reservation is 6:30 PM (I think). And the reservation will be cancelled if I didn’t arrived on time. So I ended up going alone. 😛

Going here ahead of time gives you a great benefit or advantage. You can find a better place since it is not yet crowded with costumers. During our visit, t’was raining so I ended up choosing to seat inside. The place is not air conditioned unlike in MOA (that’s what they said. I haven’t dine-in in Charaptor MOA yet.)

The staffs are nice. I remembered asking them if there’s a way for us to be on the same table. They made an L shape table to accommodate us but my officemate suggested to just have a separate tables since it’s a little bit crowded and we can’t move properly. I asked them again to place the tables again on their original places. They do it without hesitations.

I’m not stereotyping all restaurant crews but some of them are snobbish. If you ask them to do something all over again, there will be a possibility that they will roll their eyes on you, say something against you, or do something on your food. But in this case. They did what we asked for with smile on their faces.

It was my first time to be here in Charaptor. The food is great, well, some of them. Though you don’t have lots of food to choose from but it was okay if you are not expecting anything. I love the cream dory wrapped in a foil, but please don’t ever overcooked it. If you cooked it perfectly, it will melt in your mouth once you eat it but if you overcooked it, it will be a rubber.

The only thing I don’t like is the food and the drinks are sold separately, you will add additional fee if you like to have unli drinks. My officemate’s too nice, he also treated us unli drinks which in my case is heaven!!!!

If you spend time with your friends with good food, the moment will be memorable and unforgettable. In this case, I may forget the taste of the food but I won’t forget this moment, the way we laughed and the way we talked to each other because this brought us closer together.

I may not be coming back in Charaptor Makati unless it’s free, but I would like to try the charaptor in MOA.

Please be careful on under-cooked food because you might catch a flu or something.

til next time 🙂

#Happinessisnow

Last September, our dearest translator celebrated her birthday and because of that, she started a contest where in we– her coworkers — should post a pic on our timeline and caption it with what makes us happy. And there will be two lucky winners and the prize was a free lunch 🙂

And let me show you what I posted.

happinessisnow

You see, we may all have gadgets, (and gizmos a plenty I’ve got whozits and whatzits galore!!! kidding aside) we have money, we have a job and we’re not poor but what is our happiness? What makes you happy?

They say that Filipinos are among the happiest people in the world and I agree. Why? because we found happiness in small things. be it a friend who stumbled, a gift, a corny joke and so on. We can easily find something funny or happy in little stuffs. And that’s what I really like. We’re not shallow that we found happiness in material things. Yes we love iphones, androids, tablets and laptops. Shopping made me forget my gloomy day. These made our life easy and not boring. But there are more to life than these things. And that’s what I’m proud of being a Filipino because we’re not shallow enough to love these things. We treasure the moments rather than anything else.

So you see, my happiness is my pride and joy; my son.  🙂

Before I do something like crying and posting something that my son will be ashamed of me in the future, let me share to you where my dearest Ms. Maria treated us lunch.

We ate in RYU near our working place in Makati

Service : ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ (6 out of 10)
Food : ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7 out of 10)

The food were delicious, I like their gyoza that I wished I ordered for myself. I ordered a curry though I forgot what kind of curry and I wished I had something else. Don’t get me wrong, I love curry but since I figured out I like my mother’s curry than I ordered from most of the restaurants I figured I don’t like authentic curry because. Just because. Lols! I don’t like the taste of it plus the after taste, ahahahha! I’m so maarte! lols.

I wished I tried their ramen just like my dates ordered but that time, I really don’t like ramen or any other Japanese food, unless it’s tempura but since I have friends who are more than crazy to let me try different cuisines, I can finally say that I can eat ramen. 😉

Aside from my family, my happiness is FREE FOOD 🙂
