Bento Box Art

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who said food art is not allowed in bento boxes? There are times where I wish that I was a Japanese, just so I could try making a bento box art myself. But then I thought, wouldn’t it be a waste if I just eat it right away? After all, I made a masterpiece using bits of food. So I figured, maybe being not a Japanese was a good thing for me.

 

Power Puff Girls! I’ve always been an avid fan of PPG ever since I was a kid. And seeing it in a bento box makes me want to smile. Isn’t that cute?

Rock. We all know how famous visual keis in Japan are. I honestly like Malice Mizer, a visual kei rock band from the early 90’s and I am in love with GACKT (seriously)! I find them weird at first, but you’ll soon get to like it.

Define cute? That picture below is. Just seeing that makes me want to see it in real life >_<  It’s so cute 🙂 Especially the eggs.

Care for some coffee? Yes. The oh so famous coffee shop, Starbucks. In a bento. Cool, isn’t it?

Junior and Senior P R O M E N A D E~

Our prom was held last night, February 20, 2014 at The Orchard Golf and Country Club. We’re here to share the pictures of what we ate last night 🙂 I enjoyed the prom because all seven of us were complete, but it was kind of boring for us, lol. 

 

If I’d give it a rate of 1-10, being 10 as the highest, I’ll give it a 5. The food wasn’t really that great, but we were very hungry as hell, so we just decided to give it a go.

UNFORTUNATELY, we forgot to take a photo of the main dish! Can’t believe we actually forgot to take the very important one. 

 

Last but not the least, here’s a picture of us, finally complete! :> ❤

Pizza For Merienda!

Image

Image

We went out to eat at Yellow Cab just beside ICA East for merienda last Thursday. It was actually my post birthday kainan (Haha. Just joking.) because I wasn’t able to buy them something to eat on my birthday last Tuesday due to our hectic school schedule. We ordered a very yummy Manhattan Meat Lovers and a #4 Cheese Pizza. The dwarfs and I were all full after eating those two pizzas. It was a very fun (and tiring) day indeed. 🙂

Japanese and South Korean Snacks

You’re missing out one of the best food around Asia if you haven’t eaten a Japanese or Korean snack.

PRETZ (Japan)

Pretz from Glico. Pretz is a biscuit stick similar to Glico’s Pocky, but less sweeter than Pocky. The flavor posted above is Matcha and Vanilla.

POCKY (Japan)

Pocky is the twin of Pretz. hehe. This Glico Panda Pocky – Cookies and Cream is only a limited edition and it comes with a bigger box than the usual.

CHOCO PIE (S. Korea)

Of course I wouldn’t forget this one. It’s because Song Joong Ki endorses this Choco Pie. HAHA 😀 And my mom and I really loves this snack. Choco Pie is a snack cake consisting of two small round layers of cake with marshmallow filling with chocolate covering, similar to a pie.

BINGGRAE ICE CREAM (S. Korea)

I love Korean Ice Cream. It’s very refreshing and it’s not so sweet, unlike other ice cream. There’s also various flavors that I’m sure you don’t even know it existed. I really recommend eating Encho. It’s not just your typical pinipig ice cream. There’s something more than that.

MOCHI ICE CREAM (Japan)

I haven’t tried this one yet, but I hope to taste one in the future. It really looks cute and yummy. Mochi Ice Cream is a Japanese confection made from pounded sticky rice with ice cream filling. YUMM~~

PORORO KID’S DRINK (S. Korea)

It’s a “kid’s” drink, but I beg to disagree. Not only kids drink this cute juice! There are four flavors of this drink available: Apple, Strawberry, Tropical Fruit and Milk. I’ve only tasted the sagwa flavor (apple) twice and I can say that it surprisingly really tastes like apple.

PORK CUTLET (Japan)

Tonkatsu is also a snack in Japan. I’ve seen it in a lot of dramas and my stomach growls so much whenever I see them eating Tonkatsu. Tonkatsu is a deep fried breaded pork.

SPICY RICE CAKES (S. Korea)

Teokbokki/Dukbokki is a very very famous snack among South Koreans especially during the cold weather. It is made from soft rice cake, fish cake and sweet red chili sauce.

I CRAVE YOU

Sorry for the weird title, but I hope it has caught your attention. These are the sweets that I crave for as of today:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

ImageDo I still have to explain how delicious chocolate chip cookies are? I think you know how heavenly tasty this food is.

Belgian Waffles

Image

That luscious waffle will probably make you salivate along with your own choice of topping or spread. I like mine with chocolate and hazelnut. It’ll make you beg for more!

Caramel Popcorn

Image

I love chocolate, and caramel comes next to it. Who says popcorns are only for watching movies? I don’t. I actually think it fits on different kinds of occasions, whether it’s watching a movie with your peers, your family, your date or just to eat it for snack. Just imagine that popcorn with caramel all over it melting on your mouth. Scrumptious, isn’t it?

Oreo Milkshake

Image

I’ve been craving for this one for weeks! There’s this fruit shake store that we almost went to last Saturday and I wasn’t able to buy an oreo milkshake because we have no more time and we have to go and I’ve already eaten ice cream, halo halo and another milkshake that time.

So, that’s all for today. I can’t think of any more food that I am craving for right now. Heehee. 🙂

EAT ALL YOU CAN!

Ever experienced that moment in your life when all you just want to do is just eat until you stomach would burst (well, not literally)? I felt the same before back then. And that’s when my family introduced me to buffets. I really love buffets because first of all, it’s worth the money for hungry eaters like me and there’s a lot to choose from. In this post, you’ll see a bunch of Buffets located in the Philippines.

 

Yakimix

Image

 

My personal favorite. I’ve been here for four times already. I really like the ambiance of this place and there’s a lot of Japanese and Chinese foods that you can eat. I also love grilling the yakiniku myself. You’re also free to eat if it’s your birthday and staffs will sing for you but tag someone along with you because you can’t go alone. Teehee. Be careful not to leave anything over though, because they’ll charge you Php 699.00 if you do.

 

Sambo Kojin

It’s similarly close to Yakimix. We went here during my brother’s birthday and it was really fun! Staffs were singing and dancing for him and they even gave him a small cake. I love their fried Japanese foods, especially their Tempura and there were a lot more. There’s also Korean cuisine, but I’m not really into Korean food so I didn’t taste all of it and I only tried their dukbokki. It was great. I like how there’s a lot of condiments to choose from to experiment on your meat while grilling too. Like Yakimix, there’s also a left over fee too (as much as I recall). BTW, I really like their desserts here Hoho.. 

 

Kamayan, Saisaki, Dad’s: THE ULTIMATE BUFFET

Image

We’ve been here last year too! It’s a combination of Filipino, Japanese and American food. I like how there’s a wide variety of food to choose from but it’s my least favorite out of the three, probably because I was too full that time and I didn’t get to eat much because I didn’t like some of their foods. If there’s one thing that I like here, it’s probably the desserts section. But don’t worry, because it’s still worth the money, I’m just really a picky eater (I didn’t like veggies and there were a lot of meals that includes veggies). I still remember getting a free fish plushie from them because they had this promo that if you order a bottomless drink, you’ll get a free toy. My siblings got one as well. And by the way, there’s also a left over fee here too!

Here’s the fish that I got from their buffet:

Food. At its finest.

These foods wouldn’t be called “finest” for nothing. Here are some foods that will surely satisfy your taste buds!

Marinated London Broil

Image

A perfect dish for your dinner. Marinated London Broil is a grilled cut of beef marinated with garlic, wine and vinegar. You can also match it up with your favorite kind of wine.

Chicken Alfredo Pasta

Image

An easy to prepare type of meal that you can just do within 30 minutes. Pasta and roasted chicken are covered in homemade alfredo sauce, then sprinkled with pepper and/or mozzarella cheese. A meal that can surely put a smile on your face before and after eating.

Sizzled Citrus Shrimp

Image

A very simple shrimp dish. This meal can serve as a main dish or an appetizer, depending on your own liking. Sizzled Citrus Shrimp is a “Spanish-inspired saute and is a lesson in simplicity”, according to the Spring 2004 edition of Eating Well Magazine.

Chocolate Ice Cream

Image

After a long whole day stressed at work, how about a bowl of chocolate ice cream paired with a chocolate syrup on top? Sounds teasingly delicious, right?
