MILK TEA! The latest drink craze in the Philippines right now. Been seeing a lot of people in Facebook uploading their milk tea drinks... While me, green tea frap from Starbucks will suffice. But because of my FB friends, I got curious. One of the most talked bout is Cha Dao. Been really wanting to try it but I don't have much time. So there's this BUBBATEALICIOUS in SM Fairview and that's the closest to me. So I decided to give it a try and since I'm not familiar with the flavors, I just tried the Strawberry milk tea since I love strawberries. And I loved it, you will taste the mixture of strawberry and organic tea ingredients. I just really loved it... I also tried the strawberry milk tea in karate kid, the tea taste is stronger though, but still like it :)

Tuna Afritada!

I made my own Tuna Afritada! Need to have a balanced diet so I decided to try experimenting.
At first I already thought of having Tuna with tomatoes but I wanted more veggies and I found mixed veggies in the Fridge. At first I didn't know what to call it but as I was cooking and have put in all the ingredients it looked like an afritada and it seemed like the ones that you buy in the supermarket (Flavored canned tuna).

1/2 canned tuna (I used Century tuna chunks in vegetable oil)
2 tomatoes (diced)
1/2 onion (minced)
1/2 pack mixed veggies
1 1/2 tbsp canola oil

Heat the canola oil in the pan
Saute onion and then put in tomatoes, juice them a bit by pressing on them
add the tuna and saute for 5mins
add mixed veggies and just keep mixing them until veggies are cooked

(Sorry for the terms, but I don't know how to make cooking instructions lol)

FISH18 clothing store

I was window shopping earlier at SM North Edsa's The Block and I discovered this store. It seems to me it is a Japanese clothing store, I don't really know but it's really cool. You will see some simple shirts with cool prints and there are some clothes with odd designs but really cool and fashionable and wearable for everyday use. Aside from that, clothes in Fish18 are also affordable ranging from 599Php to 2000Php.

I'm glad I found this store because lately I've been having a hard time looking for a store where I can buy clothes that aren't common but affordable and comfortable to wear.

I checked their website, seems thay have started couple of years back but honestly it's the 1st time I saw this store. Probably they just recently opened a store here in the capital region.

Anyway you can visit them at level 3 SM North Edsa The Block.

Toycon 2011 (June 18, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong, Philippines)

It was a very exciting and fun day! I never thought that I would be enjoying this kind of event. Before, when I was seeing people do cosplay I find them weird and I really hated it (cosplay) but I just realized it's really fun to cosplay and I even want to do it on the next cosplay event here in Manila.

My sister and cousin played as members of the delta team from USS (Umbrella Security Service). If you're playing Resident Evil then you should know them. And on the next cosplay event I want to play HUNK, he's also part of th RE USS but I want to play the mercenaries 3d version of him.

There were a lot of cosplayers that day and it got to a point that i felt dizzy already because there was no enough space to move in to and everyone was already bumping into each other.

But overall I really had fun and I really want to cosplay soon because when you are doing it, it's like you're a celebrity, a lot of people will ask to take a picture of you or to take picture with you (I'm a bit of a frustrated celebrity lol).

So see you on the next cosplay event!

Joey Pepperoni Pizzeria

Pasta and pizza, can't get enough of them. If time comes that I would only have pasta and pizza everyday I surely won't get tired of it. Doesn't matter how cheap or expensive.

One of the resto's in my list is Joey Pepperoni. It was my boss from my previous life (Career who introduced Joey Pepperoni to me. She loves pasta and pizza too.

They also have sampler combos like chef de angelo and chef donatelo. Good thing about Joey Pepperoni and like some pasta and pizza resto, they are not really pricey and tastes great too. I'm not sure if they are italian or american style but it doesn't matter as long as I love their food. :D


I was never a fan of carnival or theme parks but I decided to join my workmates on their trip to Enchanted Kingdom. I'm really scared of those roller coaster loops, had a phobia with their haunted house booths, and I thought I'm not going to have fun at Enchanted Kingdom. But I surely DID! :P

Funny the first booth we tried was the 4D theater and that time the featured film was Dora the explorer! Haha I know but we just enjoyed it like those kids who were with us in the room.

And after that they started to talk about going to Space shuttle! And I freezed for a bit because it's the most frightening ride for me... I was thinking of not joining them but I'm scared that they might tease me... In my mind I was thinking of what should I do to prevent them from going to that ride... but then when we were approaching space shuttle and all of them just went straight to it, I just started to pray. lol SURPRISINGLY after the ride and eventhough I felt a bit dizzy I shouted and I said I LOVED IT! haha Crazy but I did enjoy it although I was trembling because it was too intense but I really did enjoy it and after that I starved! lol My energy got drained by space shuttle!

After that we ate, had lunch and just strolled through the park. Went to some souvenir shops.
I already got tired because of space shuttle and it was only my 2nd ride that day. Then some of them tried anchors away and that one I really refused, I heard a lot of negative feedbacks about that ride. Then after we went to Rio Grande Rapids. I enjoyed rio grande rapids but I got wet! There was this part where we needed to pass through a waterfalls and I was even telling the girl in front of me that she will get wet due to that falls but then that large life-saver-like thing spinned and I'm the one who got hit by that waterfalls. Grrrr

Eventhough I was only able to try 3 attractions I really had fun. I hope I will be able to go back but I'm not sure if I will do space shuttle again. haha I know I said I loved it, but I guess that was due to the feeling of relief after that extreme roller coaster ride. I really liked rio grande rapids, but I need to bring couple of pair of clothes if I will keep on riding that thing again and again.
