Another take on Singapore

Singapore? I guess this is another country close to my heart besides my homeland Philippines. Singapore has been a familiar place for me as I’ve been here a couple of times already. The last time I went there was for a business trip.

List of things we did -

1. Stayed in Carlton City
2. Alone time - food trip at Mcdo 
3. Lunch at Rocky Master
4. Night out at OverEasy
5. Had Magnum in the middle of our party night

Work has never been this fun. :) 

How can I not love work, when you get a nice hotel room for you.. :)

My alone time was spent in buying a meal in Mcdo and getting myself some dessert. This is my favorite meal in Mcdo, how I wish we had this in PH.

Lunch out at Rocky Master, still veggie on my menu - caesar salad and mushroom soup. Keeping a strict diet for myself.. discipline while on a semi vacation trip. :)

At night, we do party harder.. Mojto at OverEasy. Drinks up! after a stressful work week.

And to end the night, the girls took a few minutes to try the DIY Magnum. And all I can say is this is too sweet for my taste buds but it is worth a try, just for the experience. :)

Hole in a Wall: Salt Makati

A colleague of mine invited us out to try Salt, this restaurant can be located in Fermina St. corner Enriquez St., Poblacion Makati City. 

Upon reaching the area and settling down on our seats, we were greeted by a 1 page menu. This is a first that I got in a restaurant with just a couple of things in a menu - surely, you won’t think too much when selecting food.

Before we started with our main course, we’ve ordered Caesar Salad (Php 150.00). This had been a habit of mine, to order a salad before digging in the main course, and Caesar salad is a classic vegetable mix when dining in restaurants. This one is quite fine however, it is quite sour than the usual. Taming down that excess taste would make this starter perfect. 

One of our friends ordered Country Fried Chicken (Ph 180.00). The chicken was served with rice and corn as a side dish. The meat was quite tender with a sauce that is a bit creamy and sweet. We were much more expecting for a gravy to be served than a creamy dip. 

As our friend would recommend, order the cheapest steak as it is was their best seller. Hence, the boys ordered T-bone steak (Php 190.00). This is normally served with rice and potato salad as its side dish.

You can as well try to ask the waiter if you could exchange your rice with their potato salad instead. The boys loved their potato salad, so I am assuming their potato salad tastes really great. :)

I on the other hand tried the Cajun chicken (Php 180.00). My verdict on this one? I like the tenderness of the chicken but the chicken was quite too salty, I guess this was because I didn’t eat rice. Their chicken might fit in well with the meal if you’ll be eating it with rice. I like their salsa too, they had a different take on the salsa - having corn go with it. 

And to our favorite dessert : Frozen Brazo de Mercedes (Php 110.00) - it had canonigo (egg white) , yemma, ice cream and crushed grahams. It wasn’t too sweet and very refreshing. Everyone just loved it, we ordered 2 of these thinking that it would be just enough to share. Well, everyone underestimated the goodness of this dessert and just had to order additional 2. We all felt we wanted more but had to stop ourselves from ordering more.

All in all, it was a great steak house and dessert place. It had a great value for money and your taste buds won’t be disappointed.

Juanito’s Bistro @ Kapitolyo

I used to just pass by Juanito’s Bistro whenever I drive around Kaptiolyo. This is one of the restaurants that you will find on the long food alley of Kapitolyo. 

How did I find this place? As a foodie, I just wouldn’t get it out of my system to search for a new restaurant to dine in weekly. During that week I was craving for Isaw (Chicken Intestine), a Filipino delicacy. Hence, I took the chance of visiting this restaurant as this is just in our neighborhood.

image

I got myself an order of Buttered Corn (PhP 120.00), since as always I’d take what is low on carbs but high on fiber. A plus is, this is half the carbs that you get from eating rice.

image

Oh and we got ourselves our favorite, adobong sitaw (PhP 140.00) . The taste was just right, not too salty and not too sour. :)

image

To add as well is their Buttered Chili Wings (PhP 185.00), where the spice is just right.

image

And my most awaited food for the night was Crispy Chicken Isaw (PhP 185.00). I loved every bite I made on this one and the sauce was just perfect! But this one is just quite high in cholesterol and it is good for 3 persons actually. :) 

Cravings were satisfied on my first visit! And we’ve decided to return here one day for a couple of drinks just for the experience. :)

And a second visit has been made for a night of drinks. This time there were no main course meals, rather, we ordered a couple of Filipino street food.

image

This time we tried the Pork Isaw (PhP 120.00), and this was enough for 2 heads this time.

image

Ordered Dynamite or Chili Cheese Longganisa (PhP 180.00) as well, this had cheese and longganisa meat inside the green chili. I love how the cheese melts in every bite. The spice itself is just right as well.

image

Beef Nachose (PhP 160.00) won’t be missed out as well on a drinking night. Love this as well! Another night of cravings were satisfied.

image

We as well ordered Lychee Margarita and Sprite Vodka as the drinks for the night. :)

image

Below is the menu of Juanito’s Bistro, go visit this place as I recommend it for great food. Bring company as well as they will enjoy every bit of stay in this place. :)

Chasing Dreams && Opportunities

image

This year had been quite a challenge for me, knowing where I’m passionate about, searching for opportunities and chasing my dreams. It was quite a rough road, going from one company to another and finding out that I might have made a wrong choice of moving out. 

Could be quite impulsive and was not yet ready for what the world has in-store for me. Facing failure and probably, I was about to give up. Feeling that chasing for that dream must be quite too early. 

image

At a young age of 24, I have so many dreams and no one or nothing is ever going to stop me from reaching it. 

"The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it." - Steve Jobs

To me it’s not about chasing your passion but to find that “passion” in what you have in the now. I myself have a great love for fashion and travel but I work in the IT industry and found my heart in it in the long run. And maybe, focusing myself so much in chasing my dreams have lost me and my beliefs..

image

Moving on another job for this year have reminded me of what I am passionate about and to count my blessings. Still I am working in the IT industry with a plus of having the bulk of the business in the travel industry. The opportunity to travel and learn about different cultures is where my heart is in.

It is true, that one day you’ll stop looking and you would say that this is where you want to stay. It is true that you will know once you find it.

Not everyone gets the chance to be able to say that they enjoy their work and maybe work doesn’t even feel like work. No matter how tired I may feel, still this job has been fulfilling and I’ve enjoyed every minute and hour of it. 

Never stop dreaming and believing. Keep on searching ‘til you find where your heart is but never forget to see the littlest blessings that comes with where you are.
