Shawarma Bros

Found our way at Venice Grand Canal Mall and before we head to our final destination for Playtime with the kids, we decided to check on Eatigo and see what resto has promo.

Turned out Shawarma Bros has a 30% discount so we decided to book it!

It’s nice to have the Eatigo App because with the discounts, you will not be afraid to try new restos. If in case the food’s not good, at least you didn’t pay the full price! Haha!

We came in ahead of our schedule and we seated ourselves. YES, we fixed our table. It’s by 2s so we had to put 2 tables together to fit us. Calling customer service!!!

When it was time to order, we were told that our schedule is 5:30pm and I think that they are implying that we couldn’t order yet. It would be okay if the place was packed. But hey, it was just us. Later on, a staff told that maybe we could order in advance, this was when she saw the ??? look on our faces.

A big school bus right before the entrance.

The interior is nice. I love the simplicity and the overall look of the place. It’s like we are inside a container van!

They have a #brobeerchallenge and the participants’ names and corresponding record time are displayed in this wall.

The menu is limited.

Since we wanted to have dinner, we ordered 3 rice dishes.

Hubby ordered a Bro’s Beef Shawarma Rice which is their best seller.

For hubby, his order’s value for money, especially we have 30% discount!

I ordered a Momma’s Chicken Shawarma Rice.

I love my order, I really got full fast. Suits my taste buds.

For the kids, we ordered 2 pc Honey Butter Fried Chicken with Rice.

The chicken’s breading was a little salty for my taste, but it was crunchy and the meat is very tender. Also, the meat tasted good.

All the rice dishes came with Shredded Veggies, a slice of Tomato and Crispy Veggie Strips.

So many sauces to choose from! The kids love their Cheese Sauce!

All in all, we are satisfied with what we had. Value for money is ok with the Eatigo discount.

If asked if we would come back, maybe we would like to try some other place first.

But if you haven’t tried yet, we recommend you try it rather than have a meal at a regular fast food chain.

Landers x Caltex

It’s not too late! You still have today and 2 more days to gas up and fill your tanks!

I did today and I was in and out in less than 10 minutes! The best time is right after you drop your children to school. But make sure it’s not too off your usual route as the savings may not be worth it compared to your hassle and your actual trip.

I was about 2 cars away when I took this photo and since there are 4 slots, I got called even before I finished uploading.

Actual fuel prices today!

I filled up the tank up to 41.692 Liters! I practically saved Php 416.92.

My receipt! My fuel price at Php 41.32 / Liter instead of Php 51.32.

This is so worth it when your tank’s drained. Mine was on the last line.

Good job Landers!

To know more about their sale, pleade go to Landers Superstore Facebook Page.

See you on Friday! 😎

For us parents, it is very important for our children to have the best of everything. We put them in good schools to have the best education. But it is only not inside the classroom that they could learn. At home, we could give them toys that will make them learn while having fun!

Edu.Play, a brand from Korea, brings Edu Blocks to the Philippines and it is fast becoming a hit to daddies, mommies and of course, the children.

Edu Blocks are huge building blocks which can let our kids’ imaginations run wild! With these blocks, they can build or create anything from their vivid imagination! Nothing is impossible with these colorful blocks!

There are 3 sets to choose from!


It has 48 pieces of huge building blocks in assorted colors that the kids can use to build anything they could imagine!

Like this very colorful big dog!


This set has 29 pieces of blocks that we can form us balancing beams or obstacle courses. Mommies can also make use of these colorful blocks to build a display rack or a shelf to put our kids’ toys!

For intimate kiddie parties at home, Set B can be pretty useful.

They can roll away with whatever they will build!

Atmos Fit Elite

Part of my 2018 goals is to be fit. I am not getting any younger and I need to start being healthy if I want to live a long and fruitful life.

I have already started decreasing my rice intake. But I guess that’s not enough. I checked my Sugar Level and it’s almost crossing the border line.

I would start walking as my exercise and eventually do more rigid exercises as I go along.

To monitor my goal to be back into shape, I bought a smart fitness band.

Introducing the ATMOS FIT ELITE Smart Fitness Band. I ordered mine through Kimstore and picked it up at Technopop in Lucky Chinatown Mall. At only Php890.00, I can now start my fitness journey!

As I unbox, I got so excited. Included is a Manual and User Guide. The basic things you need to know about your fitness watch is here.

Included as well is the specialized charger for the band. It’s USB so charging wouldn’t be a problem.

I wanted black but it was out of stock, so I chose blue instead. The color is nice, the fit is just right for me. It’s lightweight and the band is not sticky.

The 3 button is where you will align your charger clip.

As excited as I was, I needed to charge first. And true to its advertisement of long lasting battery, one charge lasted from Feb 16 until Feb 24. I have been wearing it almost 24/7, even when I sleep, I only take it off when I take a bath.

This fitness band can do the following:

  • Digital Watch
  • Pedometer – count your steps in a daily basis.
  • Calorie Counter – count calories burned based on your stat
  • Heart Monitor – measure heart rate
  • Auto Sleep Tracking- measures the quality of sleep you had
  • Bluetooth Connectivity – connects with a free app which displays your statistics.
  • Essential Notification – vibrates when you receive a new message, but you have 5o sync it with your phone first.

All in one gadget. Definitely a must for mommies like me.

TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie

Found ourselves in the quaint space that is TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie in the ground floor of the Promenade in Greenhills.

One of the Best Pork Buns can be found in TuanTuan Brasserie. In my opinion, it is better than Tim Ho Wan’s!

Very soft snow buns and it has that melt in your mouth feeling to it! 👌👌👌

For the cheese lovers out there, this dish is definitely for you! This baked seafood rice is oozing with cheese! Another good thing with this dish is that it has a variety of seafood and not too many rice!

Pork Congee for the oldies!

Steamed Minced Pork Rice – a little dry for me. 👎

DIY Noodles with Choice of Side Dish

Kids’ choice – Prawns and Wanton Dumpling in Fish Lip Soup

Side Dish 1 – Veggie Rolls – wrapper not crunchy but the meat / veggie is tasty

Side 2 – Chicken Wings – looks not appealing but it’s crunchy and tastes good.

Something to experience with the whole family. More of the menu to try.

Tagaytay Mahogany Beef Market

An impromptu drive to Tagaytay for the purpose of buying Batangas beef turned out to be a food and shopping trip today!

Left Manila around 5am and passed through all the closed SMs and Robinsons Malls along Aguinaldo Highway, hence the fast and no traffic drive going up to Tagaytay. I took a nap and when I woke up, we were already at the Mahogany Market. Such a cold morning too!

Weather update was after our breakfast and it still was 22 degrees!

The Mahogany Market in Tagaytay is famous for its Batangas Beef. They also have a slaughterhouse so you can be sure that the beef is fresh!

Before we purchased our beef, we made our way to the 2nd floor of the building to have our breakfast! There’s a long stretch of bulalohans and seems like they offer the same menu.

We chose Len’s.

Crispy Hipon – half order – Php100.00

Crispy Tawilis – half order – Php100.00

Bulalo – Php 350.00

Double the love for the Calamansi and Sili for the sauce!

Unlimited Senorita Banana – free

Unlimited Kapeng Barako (Batangas Coffee) – free

The Bulalo soup is so tasty! But the serving of the meat is too small compared to other Tagaytay Restaurants that also serve Bulalo. The Crispy Hipon is crunchy! But my favorite is the Crispy Tawilis. The size is just right. CRUNCHY and TASTY!

I loved it so much I bought a pack for Php 70.00.

Oh remember to bring a cooler with you so that you don’t have to buy anymore. We came prepared with 2 coolers! Haha!

After our stint in the Beef Section, we went straight to the Dry Goods part of the market where they sell Fruits and Vegetables!

Beware and be aware that some of their prices are pegged at Tourist Prices! Some are just about the same in Manila. And because of this, we didn’t buy any!

You could buy plants here too!

It really was a great morning having spent it with my loves. Another experience to add to the memories!

Wait, there’s more! We went malling at the Ayala Serin but since it’s about 9am only, some of the shops are still closed. We decided to proceed to Nuvali on our way down to Manila.

We walked around the shops. Checked the outlets and scored some deals! Then it was time to have lunch already!

It was only 11 am but Silantro (yes, the always full and have to wait a long time Tex Mex resto) was buzzing already!

Good thing we were seated immediately. We ordered so much!

Beef Nachos – it’s good and it’s one of their bestsellers!

Seafood Paella – I love that it’s not as salsa-ish as before.

Ribs (better at Gringo) It’s tender but the taste is so-so.

The Salpicado is too spicy for me.

So, after this very heavy lunch, we walked around again and shopped for shoes before we drove back to Manila.

At 3pm, we are safely back home.

Time to sleep!

Gringo – Chicken, Ribs & Friends

Found a new place to hang out and enjoy food with friends and family! Gringo is located at Ayala Malls the 30th.

Ayala Malls the 30th is one of the newest malls to open here in Pasig City and it’s just a stone’s throw away from Estancia Mall.

Unlike the more popular malls around the metro, this mall has just the right amount of people, your basic mall needs like supermarket, drugstore and bookstore, lots of trendy boutiques for your shopping needs and a cinema for your entertainment needs. No lines, no frills. The way I like it.

Back to the resto, Gringo’s interior is very homey. It’s like you are in your Aunt’s kitchen. Wood finishes, industrial look.

They serve the best nacho platter in the world! I am not exaggerating! It really is tasty and crunchy! Their lemony tangy sauce is love! ❤❤❤

We ordered a Trufle Queso quesadilla but it didn’t deliver. Can’t taste the cheese at all! Too bland.

Moving on to the kids’ dish – Chicken Fingers & Fries! Cooked just right – chicken so tender & fries so crunchy. And this Chicken Tenders is only Php135.00!

Since it’s Tex-Mex cuisine, there is also burrito on the menu! According to husband, it tastes good and it’s not scrimped!

Their 1875 Pot Stewed Beef is to die for as well! You will have to order rice to partner with this dish! The sauce in itself is already so good and very rich in flavor! Top it with beef that was boiled for hours and hours – heaven!

Of course, there is the Roasted Chicken with Sidings! You go for the Southern Spice than the Original. The chicken is juicy, very flavorful. The spices really add so much flavor to it.

Let us talk about the Mashed Potato! It’s freshly made, need not say anything no more. Anything that’s made fresh will always be on top!

On our 2nd trip, we pretty much ordered the same dishes but we added a half rack of ribs and oh! It tastes as good as the chicken! Too bad we were too hungry that a picture wasn’t in order anymore. So I just grabbed us some picture from Gringo’s Facebook Page.

I am getting hungry from all these, so I will see you later folks! Heading over to Gringo to grab me some chicken and ribs! 😂

HAPPY Wings & Waffles

I am generally a happy person and I love seeing happy stuff. Now, there is a place where your tummy can be happy too! A few weeks ago, Happy Wings & Waffles opened its doors to the public. I have the opportunity to attend its soft opening and I certainly had a happy time!

I love how simple but catchy the logo is. Red definitely attracts clients.

The people who makes us filled with happiness!

I love this backdrop wall. This separates the main dining area and the private function area.

Balloons make the place festive.

A display of different flavored waffles and muffins for your choosing.

This is the statement wall just before the wash area.

Since it’s opening day and guests were invited for the blessing, we were treated with a 5 course set menu.

Hokkaido Pumpkin Soup with Fresh Diced Apple

Caesar Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

Spaghetti Bolognese Pasta with Caramelized Onion Foccacia Bread

Rosemary Roasted Chicken and Cranberry Sauce with Buttered Broccoli and Cauliflower

Matcha Creme Brulee / Champagne Pannacotta / Italian Tiramisu

Of course, after a meal, a cup of coffee is definitely a must!

This is me enjoying my hot cup of Cafe Mocha!

There are so much more to try at Happy Wings and Waffles! Will post more photos as I try more food from their menu. But I will be sure to order the Rosemary Chicken with Cranberry wine sauce! Can’t wait!!!

Be it breakfast, lunch, snacks or dinner, Happy Wings and Waffle surely has something for you!
