Teach Me How To Pinkberry

Teach Me How To Pinkberry

Swirly Goodness Starts Here I know people are very familiar with other yogurt stores in Manila, so let me explain to you just why Pinkberry is my FAVORITO yogurt amongst all of them. These shots are from the Santa Monica Pinkberry, very near my old college apartment. The original branch in West LA is so...
Pinkberry Finally in Manila!

Pinkberry Finally in Manila!

The wait is over! Pinkberry has arrived in Manila! Way before any other yogurt shop has made its mark, Pinkberry has been my favorite frozen yogurt shop when I was studying in LA back in 2005. And six years later, it’s finally here!!! Move over, Red Mango. I remember the West LA branch. Tiny as...
Foie Gras Fantasies at Lusso

Foie Gras Fantasies at Lusso

That, right there, is the look of love. Or lust. Trip or Treats is officially in love/lust with Lusso. I’ve written about this tres chic little establishment before, already professing my adulation over Lusso’s luxurious ambiance with its matching sophisticated, yet simple, menu. I am also a big fan of the fact that they use good china,...
Lust at First Lusso

Lust at First Lusso

Lately whenever I tell my mother that I am going out for dinner with my Creamy Addict friend K, she usually responds: Didn’t you just have dinner with her? It’s true. I take advantage of free nights to date it up with K. She is, after all, a much-traveled lady who only comes to Manila about 8...
Maiden Voyage at Madison

Maiden Voyage at Madison

As I update this post, I want to let you know that Madison in Greenbelt 5 is closed I’m not so sure about the one in trinoma. I love lunches, more than dinners. Usually lunches become working lunches, only taking a break to grab a bite when the baon arrives from home. But when time permits, I...

Finding Comfort in Cheese and Cibo

I need to put my Hong Kong posting on hold. Just for a bit. After a string of busy days, crazy events, and being pulled here, there and literally almost everywhere, I really needed some comfort. Actually, I needed a lot of it. Something familiar and something that always hits a spot. I ended up in Greenbelt 5...

Mr. Jones aaaaand Me…

I literally woke up from deep slumber right now, even after taking copious amounts of sleeping pills. I guess once I must write, its come hell or high water. It’s OK though, as I’m writing about one of my ultra-fave restos so far: Mr. Jones. Do you remember that Counting Crows song with the same moniker? Shalalalalalalaaaah…. uhuhhh. Anyway, it...
Dreaming of Damaso... Sigh

Dreaming of Damaso… Sigh

After being eternally bedridden these past three days to due a recurring flu aka trangkaso, I finally generated enough braincells to go back to finishing up the long list of blogs waiting to be written. For some reason, I’ve been itching to write this blog because, from what I remember of the nibbles and the...
The Brazo That Made Me Convert

The Brazo That Made Me Convert

Filipinos around the world: Do you remember those parties back in the 80s/early 90s where the designated dessert was either Crema De Fruta and/or Brazo De Mercedes? Non Filipinos with Filipino friends: Have you or your loved one suffered thru a Filipino party wherein you were guilt-tripped into eating either presentably challenged desserts? For my...
