Paint the City Paisley

top and purse: Mango
shorts: Maldita
belt: Dorothy Perkins
accesories: Forever 21 and gift from New Zealand
flats: CMG

I went out with the girls last Monday. It was such a dejavu because we again ate at Stackers then drank the night away at Distillery for Ana to tell the story of her engagement to Lizelle and Ria who were missing the last time we were there.
Pretty aren't we? :D
Well I went home really buzzed thanks to this fellow. I was sporting a terrible headache to work that morning.
The pulutan. Bow. (In english the snack with the alcohol. Horrible translation, I know. Haha.)
I urged Jomar to treat us coffee because I may not be able to find my way home. In the spirit of Christmas, he gave in teehee.
Merry Christmas Jomar! :D
And look who we found loitering around the area.
Lookie! Kelly and Joyce!
Joyce was with her dog Mimzy who was so zashal because she has a staple drink at Starbucks: Caramel Cream Frappe.

This dog is just so spoiled. Haha!
I am one blessed and happy girl to have my girls. Happy holidays everyone!

Christmas Parties, Parties and More Parties

I think I am overabusing (is there such a word as this?) my body by popping and dropping by every party/reunion/gathering possible.

After the org dinner, my high school friends, along with new friends, had the annual Christmas party in the far far away land of Fairview.
I wonder why Ana and Banj weren't looking at the camera?
We played this unconventional kris kringle called the White Elephant whose concept was that you could "steal" somebody else's gift and that gift could move from one owner to another four times. I actually had a nice start.

But then a gazillion of gift stealings after, I ended up with a perfume by no less than the infamous Hayden Kho which is like the crappiest gift ever. Sorry Daniel but it is! Now do I hear Careless Whispers playing in the background? Damn that sucked!

Christmas eve I bumped into my childhood friends after the mass.
Patinteromates :D
After Christmas we decided to go out of the village and go karaoke. It's funny that we live in one village and yet we hardly see one another. We went to this new place called F.I.S.H. along Visayas Ave. and it was really nice. For PhP1,500, which is consumable for food and drinks, you get three hours of videoke already.
Me, Raffy, Dianne, Ron
Foodie. I forgot to take a phoro of the scrumptious Bangus Sisig!

Well all my friends know that I sing better than the average person so I enjoy videoke.

But when you have a Philippine Madrigal singer in the room...that kinda changes things. *shrinks to thunb-size version of me*
with Rem a.k.a. Choie (Oha close kami!)
Well to give you an idea how good Chois is (nobody calls him that anymore except for family and *ehem* close friends) watch below:

We just became the fantard friends that we are. The room literally became silent the moment he got hold of the microphone. We just love you dude haha!
fangirl na fangirl haha

I wore something comfy for this rendezvous.
jacket: Bayo
tank: bazaar
denim skirt: Dorothy Perkins
shoes: H&M
bag: Guess
earrings: Forever 21
Cheers to the holidays!

Kanin Club at the Ayala Triangle Gardens

Last Wednesday, I met up with my orgmates for our Christmas dinner at the Ayala Triangle Gardens. It was a bad terrible idea! Ayala Triangle was so jampacked with people that my friend Winna had to list us in all the restaurants there and pray to God that nobody faints until we get called in one. We had to kill time to forget our hunger. Good thing I ate at a Christmas party before going there.

Two mortifying hours after, we finally were up for Kanin Club.

Because the guys and girls were starving, Winna immediately ordered the Crispy Liempo and Tokwa't Baboy. The liempo came with three different sauces to dunk it in.

Tokwa't Baboy (PhP 149)
Kanin Club is famous for their Crispy Dinuguan so we must not miss that. It was accompanied by Laing, Tapa ni Ana and Seafood Salpicao.

Kanin Club also offers bottomless rice which looks like ice crem in a cup.
Kanin ala mode anyone?
Since Pilo and I were full having eaten from our previous locations, we decided to have drinks instead and  jump right to desserts. we became curious about the Green Iced Tea.
Green Iced Tea (PhP 53 single/ PhP 96 bottomless)
It was a good thing that we did not go for bottomless because this tasted like freshly squeezed flowers crossed with incense which reminded me of the friendly neighborhood spa.

For dessert we had the Sticky Rice with Mangoes which took an eternity to prepare. Good thing it was delicious; otherwise I would have created a scene. We actually wanted it cancelled because Mich has already brought revel bars which were scrumptious!
Sticky Rice (PhP 149)
Yummy Revel Bars!
Save for the booboo in the Sticky Rice, they said that the food was worth lining up for. I don't know if that had anything to do with all of them really starving. 

Anyway...outfit shot!
dress: Zara
belt: Celine
sunglasses: Fly
shoes: Forever 21
The pumps were for show only. I would literally die if I commute in those. I just think they go well with the dress. I love this dress, I think it makes me look thin as I got a lot of those "You're so thin!" statements that day. I think I'll be wearing that a lot in the future.

Verdict: 4 rice bowls
Kanin Club is located at The Ayala Triangle Gardens. Other branches at Paseo de Sta. Rosa, Westgate Mall Alabang and UP-Ayala Technohub.

Going Japanese at Yaku

My friend and officemate (and pseudo-brother Jon) celebrated his 28th birthday at Yaku Japanese Grill at The Podium. I actually didn't know that it existed until last Wednesday.

For appetizers, we had the Yaku Platter (Gindara, Butabara, Asparamaki, Uzura, Okura, Negima). Well I had no idea which is which on the plate to be honest. As far as my tastebuds were concerned, I was able to taste: 1) quail eggs; 2) asparagus wrapped in bacon and 3) fish with some spice (Gindara?). Arman ate all the okra (which I think was the Okura just because they sound alike).

We also had Kani Salad. there are only two types of salads that I can eat for all my meals in a day: potato and kani.

Jon told us to get rice bowls so we each had one. I just wasn't able to capture everything in photos because I did not bring my camera. I now turnover the official photographer task to Jon who has the better toy.
Ayii nothing like a G12!
For this set however, I grabbed the photos from Welai.
Gyudon (PhP 181.44)
Tendon (PhP 181.44)
Chicken Teriyaki (PhP 195)
Yaku was reasonably priced and I enjoyed my food; especially when it's free. It could get really packed during lunch so you may need to get reservations.

Happy birthday again Jon!

Verdict: 4 stars
Yaku is located at 3/F of The Podium.
