Weekend bonding

Since I got pregnant and since I still live with my parents and so is Bryan it has been our weekly habit that he would spend his weekends with us. Last night was a bit unexpected as our parents met for the first time. It was a quick encounter and it was only my mom and his dad. Although it was just a quick one, it is nice that they already saw each other.

Anyway,  going back to our weekends together. We would usually just stay here at home, eat sleep and then talk about our plans and eat again.heh! Today was a bit different, he was working because he brought his laptop. We ordered pizza but it never came. lol wut?! So I was already turning into hulk because I was really hungry already. Since he was also hungry we went out to the nearest mall.

We ate shabu shabu and took some photos. I told him that we do not take photos anymore and imiss having new ones with him. Also we love trying new dishes and restaurants and its worth taking a memory.


  
  
I noticed that I am already getting chubbier. hehe!

Nothings special about this day but I realized that It is just one of those days that every relationship needs. Nothing extravagant, just the time together, doing the things you enjoy (for us it is Eating!) is enough to know that you make each other happy.

I know Bryan and I will have a lot more of days like this! He promised that nothing will change even if mason is out. We will still go out and eat and have a date atleast once a month?! lol. Fair enough.

Best ones

So yesterday was supposed to be my appoinment with my OB but she had to cancel her clinic yesterday for a close monitoring patient who’s in labor. However, in the afternoon i had a scheduled meet up with my highschool best friends Irene and Michelle, since it was also Irene’s birthday we granted her wish to go to Venice Piazza in Taguig because she wants to see it so much. I’ve never seen it as well only in pictures so we went. 

The structures are well designed just like the Real Grand Canal. Although we still cannot ride the boats, the view were already enough for the time being. Its also good that we went there on a Thursday as it is not overcrowded. 

I took a few candid photos..

     
 
Well this one, is not candid because i asked them to walk towards me like im a paparazzi wannabe. lol

  
It turned out well and legit!haha!

Of course I had a few solo shots.. I don want to waste the view.

   
    
 
My tummy is already showing!

   
    
 
after that we were so hungry we went straight to Resorts World to eat at Ichiba, too bad they’re out  of Ramen, nevertheless we still enjoyed  the food and time together. 

    
    
    

  

happy birthday chucks!

Food buddy

Eversince my skin and eyes started to clear up (from my seborrheic dermatitis which i haven’t blogged about yet) and my mood and appetite came back. Bryan and I have been eating a lot for these past 2-3 weeks. Those weeks that I followed a strict diet of fruits and veggies he as well tried his best to Avoid eating too much whenever we go out together. That’s why as soon as ive finally felt a whole lot better we went back to our usual bonding which is to eat/eating (im not blaming my period/menstrual cravings but i must say, it has a huge part on why i have eaten too much since last week, girls will relate to this.)  

Bryan and I likes trying different restaurants especially those unconventional ones and mostly japanese/korean or any asian food restaurants as he likes Ramen a Lot! Actually we have a really varying taste buds, I like italian foods (pizza and pasta!) while he likes asian foods. However, ive noticed that the more i eat asian foods, the more i begin to enjoy these kinds of cuisine,but still, i can’t and will never say no to a piece of pizza! hehe the loyalty is still there. 

I can say that this is one of the things that we enjoy and we talk about whenever we’re together, eating and foods. 

Most of the photos below are posted on my instagram as well:  

    

If there’s any japanese food that I really couldnt resist, that would be california maki! And so far, Akira’s california maki are the best makis that ive tasted!   Quite pricey but definitely worth a try!

Another restaurant that we’ve tried is the newly opened Burst restaurant in Alphaland Makati. It was a really cozy place, classic spanish with a touch of Filipino style. 

Since ive tasted my workmate’s delicious baked oysters, i fell inlove and have been looking for places where we can buy baked oysters, luckily we found in Burst that they serve baked oysters that they call Burst oysters (well, of course)  its good but my workmate’s baked oysters are still the best!  

     

And lastly, from this week. We tried eating at Ramen achiban ka located around Malate. It is just a small restaurant but everything is in Japanese. I cant even comprehend the things and words posted on the walls and on the menu, credits for the english translations at the end of each japanese words.  

     

While eating i was telling bryan that i wasnt really into the taste of the Ajichiban ramen but he approves it and he ended up finishing my bowl of Ramen. He asked me if i wanted anything else and so I ordered the shrimp tempura. Thank Goodness I did, they tasted so delish! 

Whew, talking about All the foods that we have tried makes me feel so full!! definitely blogging more of our food adventures together! 🙂

Fun Rider

Yesterday was a another fun time with my friends. After going back to our office to get my last salary, we, together with Karen and Vaey went to Glorietta to eat out and just to wander around and look for clothes and Vaey went to Nokia center to get her phone fixed. Later that day, Biggs came to eat dinner with us.

We ate at Kim n’ chi

A restaurant that serves all about Korean Food (as you can see from the name, Kimchi.)

Bulgogi

We chose the Volcano Roller Coaster

When we got out of the room.. a lot of people were watching us from the monitor, so I was really embarrassed. But, it was so fun! =)

Food fight in my mind

Image

Don’t get me wrong! =)

Lately, I’ve been eating a lot. I eat when I’m hungry and I eat even more when I’m not hungry. Whenever I’m stressed I eat and when I’m hungry I get really grumpy and snob.

Since, I been staying all day in our house, I tend to open the fridge like every 5 minutes or so, thinking that there’s plenty of food inside when in reality we have none! =)

I’ll let you inside my mind and see the foods that I’ve been craving for these past few days.

Image

Of course, when it comes to french fries, who wouldn’t want Mcdonald’s?

Image

If there’s few things that I’m good at, one of them is making pancakes! I just love the fluffiness of it!

Image

Image

I love pasta! So lasagna and baked macs are on my priority list! Spaghetti and Carbonara are also next to them.

Image

Everybody loves Burgers but I love Hotdog sandwiches more. Look at those! =)

Image

I eat any kind of pizza, I’m not very particular about that. Thin or thick crust. I prefer both!

Image

It’s rainy season here and I have coughs and colds but I’m still craving for this! Oh noess! =)

Image

It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten M&Ms =(

Image

The only authentic Asian food on my mind right now. Gimme some Maki! =))

Image

I’ve eaten these last week but I still want some more!

Image

And lastly, chocolate cake! You can tell by now, that I have a thing for sweets!

Photos are grabbed here.

It’s not bad to give in to these kinds of foods every now and then, but we should always be mindful that these foods can be harmful if consumed on a daily basis and on a large amount!

Happy eating! =)

All Filipino Food Restaurant

So, I went out again with my two closest friends, namely Irene and Michelle. Irene and I were so hungry so we we’re looking for a nice restaurant to eat at. Since we both want to try something new. We went to KKK, actually it’s my first time to hear that restaurant. I have no idea at all.

It was all about Filipino dishes but as they said they are serving it with a twist. I think, they tried to reinvent those all time Filipino favorite dishes. I was reading the menu and all of it were in deep Filipino/Tagalog language. I realized that it’s easier to understand the english translation of the words. One example is the word “tiltilan” according to them it means salads and deserts, it’s my first time to hear that word and it was stuck in my mind.

For Filipinos, KKK is an acronym for the Kataastaasang Kagalanggalang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan, a patriotic secret society founded by Andres Bonifacio.  Initially, the KKK or Katipunan was a secret organization until its discovery in 1896 that led to the outbreak of the Philippine Revolution.

So,  since they are serving only Filipino foods, they named it KKK, with a tagline “food revolution”.

Image

The place is like an old Philippine setting/era.

Image

Image

We did not order much because we’re worried that we might not be able to eat them all.

Image

Image

Image

Our desert was the all time Filipino favorite (especially for pregnant women!haha) Mango and Bagoong!

Image

Here’s the Bagoong, for those who’s not familiar with this. Bagoong (Tagalog pronunciation: [bɐɡoˈoŋ]) is a Philippine condiment made of partially or completely fermented fish or shrimps and salt. The fermentation process also results infish sauce (known as patis).

Image

See? I told you, we were so hungry! hehe. I think, this should have been an Independence day post! haha! Oh well, that was another fun filled dinner. I went home with a happy tummy and a smile on my face.

I’m looking forward to another food adventure. =)

Milk tea time

Here in the Philippines, Milk tea is becoming a real trend. You can see new Milk tea stalls and franchises everywhere. They are like mushrooms that sprout anywhere! And since Kae is not really a big fan. I asked her to try it for the first time. I’m not a fan either but once I liked the flavor, I will always crave for it no matter what. (I can still remember the taste of that Kuching 3 layer tea!)

Anyway, we dropped by Top tea! It’s also my first time trying that franchise and I must say that it’s really good.

Image

Image

Image

The ambiance is also good. Image

We ordered Sweet Caramel Milk Tea and the very Popular Wintermelon Milk tea

Image

ImageObviously, the spelling of Kae’s name  is incorrect. hehe

Image

Here’s my Just-like-a-congresswoman- Photo

Image

Oh!! by the way,I love Kae’s choker! Planning to buy one for myself next time!

Image

Some ramdom shots  before we leave the place:

Another, Fun-tastic bonding! =) I love you Kae!
