Burger King’s Four Cheese Whopper!

Been wanting to try this cheesy burger for sometime now.  It didn’t fail me!

This is THE burger for cheese lovers like me!

Aside from the fact that Burger King serves the best flame grilled burgers ever, this 4 Cheese Whopper tops it by having different kinds of cheese!

I only ordered for a Whopper Jr! Do jot fret, it’s already satisfying! Perfect meal if you are rushing!

Best eaten right after it’s served.  

You could taste the Mozarella and the Cheddar as it melts in your mouth. 

If you are wondering about the types of cheese, here they are: American cheese, Mozarella cheese, Swiss cheese, and Cheese sauce.

Really deliciously cheesy!

100% Juicy! 400% Cheesy!

Can’t wait to have one again!

Beyond Coffee

Not your usual coffee shop, it’s a good place to chill and relax.  The place has a nice ambience.  

Each wall is decorated differently.

Beyond Coffee is suitable for a small group, about 3 to 4 persons.  This gives you a moment to enjoy your company.

My only problem would be the chairs.  It’s a stool without a backrest so you wouldn’t be that comfortable.  I had to rest my back on one of the walls.  Maybe they did this to save space.  Because I know bulky chairs could take so much space.

Anyway, that’s just a minor thing so let’s go to the food.

We ordered an appetizer to get us going.  Mr Nacho Gwapito – Php 195.00

Presented in a 2 tier plate.  There were 4 kinds of dip: Jalapeno Cheese, Sour Cream & Cheese, Salsa, and Ground Beef.  Up to you how your dip mix will be.

The nacho chips are also different.  You will have a choice of sour cream chips, bbq flavored chips, and the colored plain chips.  Crunchy and so full of flavor!

For the main course, we ordered their Burger Mac & Cheese at Php 155.00.

It’s a bowl of super cheesy mac & cheese paired with sausage burger.  Yumminess because there’s so much cheese in it!

Up next is a rice variant.  I called for the Pork in Teriyaki at Php 155.00.

Everything is tasty.  From the rice to the meat to the sauce.

Lastly, we ordered another pasta.  It’s one of their signature dishes, Red Pesto Tinapa.

I like tinapa but not really in a pasta.  Didn’t taste the pesto either.  My friend liked it, maybe it was just me. 

Of course, a trip to the coffee shop won’t be complete without a dessert!

Mouth watering Devil’s Cake.  Super chocolatey! We love it!

Definitely will be going back to try their coffee! We didn’t order coffee anymore as we are already so full and I for myself has a very early day the next day.  I wouldn’t want to risk not being able to fall asleep when I get home.

Also, there’s many more dishes to try!  I think I’ll set foot again in Beyond Coffee within the next few weeks.

See you!

Cup Noodles anyone?

On our last day in Singapore, we zeroed out our MRT cards in Cheers – one of their convenience stores!  Found these cup noodles and bought some!

 

I think these flavors can only be found in Singapore!

laksa

 

black pepper crab

 

chilli crab

I just find it amusing that they have these Singapore dishes in a cup noodle!

As of date, hubby already tried the Chilli Crab and it’s really spicy!

I bet the other 2 flavors are as spicy as the Chilli Crab!

Well, if that is the case, I’d stick to my Japan original flavor of Seafood instead!

American Tourister and HSBC

I was surprised when HSBC offered me yet another new card, HSBC Gold Visa.  Just a few months ago, I got an offer to get an HSBC Red Mastercard and I was able to redeem 3 pairs of shoes for free!

I am not one to shoo away offers like this so I proceeded to getting an HSBC Gold Card.  And unlike the Unionbank promo where I had to spend Php30,000.00 to get a World Traveller luggage, HSBC’s promo is to spend only Php5,000.00 and you will get an American Tourister spinner luggage!  Who am I to say no?

One or two trips to the grocery for household necessities will set you back at least Php 5,000.00.

And I am so happy that there were no problems with claiming the luggage as Rustan’s is the one handling it.  You just have to check out the days allowed for redemption.  Also, you have to be early so that they will not run out of stocks.  Better yet, you can call them to reserve.

We went to Rustan’s Gateway one Saturday to check out something and I just remembered that I have a luggage to claim.  I scrolled through my inbox to find the SMS from HSBC Redeem, took out my Gold card and Valid ID from my wallet, then presented it to the one in charge.

A few minutes after, we were on our way out of Rustan’s with the spinner luggage!

So here’s another luggage for my future travels.

What are you waiting for?  Apply for an HSBC Card now.  They have a new promo.  Get an HSBC Platinum card and get an American Tourister spinner luggage for free.  Here’s how!

Singapore Airline Kiddie Giveaways!

I am beginning to love flying non budget airlines!  Aside from the good service and almost on time flights, they always have something for our kids!

Just a few months ago, we were given kiddie bags by Cathay Pacific!

And now, Singapore Airlines surprised us with their own kiddie giveaways!

I loved it so much that I asked the coloring book they gave to daughter no 2 to be changed into the same one they gave daughter no 1!

Tsum Tsum Pencil Case & Tsum Tsum Sticky Note Set

So cute right!

Loving them so much!  I don’t want to use them!

World Traveller and Unionbank

Saw this advertisement and it was just right on time!  Immediately applied for a Unionbank Cebu Pacific GetGo Platinum Card through Unionbank’s website.  It was such a breeze.  Fill out their application form with your pertinent details and upload a copy of your financial document on their website.  Minutes after I pressed the Submit button, someone from Unionbank Cards already called me to verify my application.

I confirmed and about 2 weeks after, my new card was delivered.

It was really right timing since we were about to purchase airline tickets for a family trip.  If not for the airline tickets, I would have not reached the required spending of Php 30,000.00!

Terms & Conditions:

  • Card should have been applied for and subsequently approved on or before February 28, 2017.
  • Applicant is new to bank, meaning you don’t have any existing credit card yet with Unionbank within the last 3 months at the time of application.
  • Minimum spending of Php 30,000.00 within the promo period (May 31, 2017)
  • Registering and signifying your intent to receive the promo luggage at their unionbankph.com/freeluggage
  • Must retain the newly approved card for at least 2 years.

Once you have spent the required amount and registered, you will wait for 15 to 30 days to get a redemption sms.  They have a schedule and redemption sms are per batch.

I finally got my redemption sms and I immediately called the participating Travel Club branch nearest me to schedule my pick up.

Unfortunately, the Travel Club in Gateway told me that there were no deliveries yet and I have to wait for at least a month.  I tried calling the other branches but they said the same to me.  I called up Unionbank to complain.  My point is, we have already waited for the redemption sms for at least 15 days, it means they know how many of us qualified as they have already validated our purchases.  Telling us to wait for some more is not justifiable.

A few days after my complaint, I got a call from Travel Club Gateway that my World Traveller Luggage is already available for pick up.

I claimed the next day before they ran out of stocks again!

So here now is my World Traveler Metallic Grey Small Luggage with Item code WT14T45124-070 size 37x22x56cm with SRP of Php 4,490.00.

It has its own luggage cover!
Hard Shell for Delicate Items

With TSA Lock!

Covered compartment

Sturdy Handles

Redemption is until July 31, 2017.  So hurry and redeem before it’s too late!  Here is a list of the participating Travel Club Branches and its contact numbers:

  1. World Traveler Vista Mall – Tel. No. 941 9123
  2. The Travel Club South Mall – Tel. No. 800 0462
  3. The Travel Club SM Annex – Tel. No. 332 2307
  4. The Travel Club Gateway – Tel. No. 911 1482
  5. The Travel Club Abreeza Davao – Tel. No. 082 321 9377
  6. The Travel Club Robinsons Galleria Cebu – Tel. No. 032 261 5577

Not bad if you really have something to spend on.  Instead of buying a luggage, you get it for free!

Chowking’s Halo Halo

Summer has just ended.  It is already raining but it’s still so hot!

One of the best ways to refresh? Eat some halo halo!

Chowking’s Halo Halo is one of the many options for a good halo halo.  I got the regular one and hubby got the milky white.

Regular Halo Halo

Purple yam, sweetened jackfruit, bananas, mango, tapioca balls, garbanzos, mung beans, leche flan, nata de coco, rice crispies, gelatin, corn kernels, shaved ice, milk


Milky White Halo Halo

Mixture of sweetened banana and macapuno in freshly shaved ice and creamy white milk, topped with leche flan, custard pudding slices and macapuno ice cream drizzled with caramel topping and generous serving of pinipig

I thought I would be ok with the milky white halo halo but the corn (which was not on the list of ingredients I found in Chowking’s delivery website) just ruined it for me.  I like that there are more sweetened bananas than the regular one but I will always pick the one without the corn.  The corn kernels which was supposed to be on the Regular Halo Halo!

Chowking’s Halo Halo doesn’t taste so sweet.  The milkiness is just right.  The ingredients sometimes gets mixed up, but in totality, it is still good!

Endless Summer I guess!
