best ice cream in manila

I first encountered Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats upon the recommendation of my teammates (my teammates have a huge influence in my eating habits lol). It was the last work day of the year, and only three of us in the team made it to work. We decided to celebrate the year-end by heading to Kapitolyo for some ribs, and initially planned on having lunch at RUB instead...

Discovering Buttermilk Fried Chicken at Kettle (Shangri-la Mall, Mandaluyong)

kettle buttermilk fried chicken shangrila mandaluyong

My teammates have been raving non-stop about the Buttermilk Fried Chicken at Kettle in Shangri-la Mall, so I wasted no time and dropped by one afternoon to taste the famous fried chicken for myself. We didn’t really linger and order a lot of other dishes, since we only had one dish on our agenda. We did have enough time to whet the appetite with a serving of their clam chowder soup before the main event.

Le Petit Souffle french restaurant makati

One afternoon, Kat, Phya, and I decided to grab lunch post-event at Le Petit Souffle, a French-Japanese restaurant in Century City Mall in Makati. I wasn’t familiar with the place before our visit that day, so I did not know what to expect, except that it was highly recommended by Phya and highly anticipated by Kat, two people whose recommendations I trust. We made our way to the third floor of the mall and found the restaurant in no time.

Review: Sparks Pink Kiss

sparks pink kiss hair color dye

I guess it’s no secret by now that I have been dreaming for pink hair for a long, loooong, time now. When I first started this blog back in 2011, I’ve mentioned in one of my earlier blog posts that I would love to have pink hair, and I tell people I meet that wanting to have pink hair was one of the reasons I left my nursing career in 2013. After five years, I finally took courage to dye my hair pink! But it didn’t last as long as I would have liked.

In the photo above, I used Sparks hair colo...
