Milk Tea is Love

Out of all the milk teas available today, only 2 remains to be my favorite, Chatime and Serenitea!

Black Eyed Peas: Live in Manila Concert

It is not everyday that we get to see one of the world's top bands perform live in Manila. And what makes us prouder as Filipinos is that one of its members is also Pinoy.

Lots of people drove to the Mall of Asia Concert grounds (including me and my office mates) last October 25 to witness a great concert/party by the Black Eyed Peas.

Even the policemen couldn't resist but watch...

Event: Better Dog Games at Nuvali, Sta. Rosa

The Better Dog Games held last Oct. 22-23 at Nuvali, Sta. Rosa Laguna was a free dog show featuring trained dogs from different parts of the country and even as far away as Malaysia.

We brought Kira so she can interact with other dogs. 

Kira meets her first friend...

Malaysian dog. Forgot the exact breed

I wish we can train Kira to do this.

I want a Sheltie next.

Lunch in Chinatown: President's Restaurant


Not really a fan of Chinese food but surprisingly found myself enjoying the food in President's.
Started with Egg Drop Soup
Yang Chow Fried Rice
Spare Ribs
The Sunday Crowd
The menu
And of course, no visit to Chinatown will be complete without bringing home food from their famous stores.

Me, Aiya and Bert with the food bought from Chinatown.

San Miguel Oktoberfest 2011: Manila Kick-off

It was the grandest and biggest San Miguel Oktoberfest that I have ever seen for several reasons:
  1. The venue was so big that it was able to accommodate almost 25,000 people
  2. San Miguel Oktoberfest brought back the highlight to its different beers available and not just focused on big bands and performers on stage
  3. It was the first time that different tents were placed that housed the different beer brands and showcased each brand's personality
  4. Tickets were very affordable at only P50,00 each with 3 free cups of the limited edition San Miguel Oktoberfest beer already
  5. And the best part of it is that they sold the beer at P10.00 per cup only. 
Props to the team that made Oktoberfest happen. But the partying is not over as the provincial legs will still be implemented on the following dates:

October 14 - Limketkai, Cagayan de Oro
October 15 - Nepo Complex, Angeles Pampanga
October 28 - Paseo De Sta. Rosa, Laguna
