The Kani Roll - I love this! I can't explain why?!

My FIRST ever death threat..

Friday, February 20, 2009

I just received my first ever death threat.

And I got it thru the most techie savvy way - a text message.

So, what am I to do?

This sender (a globe prepaid number) claims to be the girlfriend of a doctor foodie blogger. She claims that I am flirting with her boytoy. Goodness gracious! The sender then continues to bash me and even went as far as saying that I am like my mom who's a wh*re. Dinamay pa pati nanay ko! The sender then sent me a string of bashing related texts.

But this morning - I got the shock of my life when I got a message from the sender saying 'Papatay kita if you still flirting doctor foodie blogger.....' I am mean - you know why? My initial reaction wasn't fear - I laughed out loud because of the wrong grammar! Hahaha!!

I want to retaliate, but what am I supposed to do?!?!?!?!

In Yo is NINYO..

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

Read about it on Anton's blog and Jen has been raving about it! Hahaha.. Was able to dine here with my friends last year and we were all very impressed; with the quality of food, the presentation and the ambiance. The ambiance, hmm - it was - well, it was just alright, different but alright. It's actually a date place (in my books), very conducive for those 'alone' dates to impress, to propose or celebrate a special date. Hihi..

My Panget's brother wanted to try it out, and so we did. I was actually excited for the risotto of the Hanging Steak! When we entered the compound, I noticed changes - the first thing was the addition of an elevated portion(with matching drapings on the side) that that held additional tables. Next was the menu, I don't exactly remember what it looked like before but I know for a fact that it wasn't a bunch of parchment papers stapled together. The biggest change? Well, it was actually my BFF KI who noticed it - the name of the restaurant is now NINYO! Hmm... After noticing that - there was something that sorta popped out too!! The price, it wasn't as expensive as I last remembered - this actually made me think - will the portions and quality be compromised? Let's see..

Soup of the day: Pumpkin Soup

First up was the Crab cakes - I remember loving this, it was just alright - in my opinion, it sorta lacked the 'kick'. Next was the Pumpkin Soup - this for me was the 'miss' for the night. I tasted more butter compared to pumpkins!! It seemed like (to me) extra butter fell accidentally into the soup! My Vongole pasta was something different, as it had bits and pieces of chorizo - strange noh? But it was good nonetheless. My Panget loved his Wagyu steak - he loved this better than the US Hanging steak (that he had before).

Vongole Pasta

Dinner was great, the food was superb - well, most of them. The company - exceptional! It was an almost perfect night. Now, why do I say almost perfect? Well, because of the uberly noisy people on the next table that seated Mr. Asi Taulava and his friends. Mr. Taulava wasn't the noisy one - let me repeat, it wasn't Mr. Taulava that was noisy - it was his companions. They were noisy as HELL! They were annoying and very loud! But pissed me off the most? Was their being inconsiderate to the other people inside the restaurant!! They didn't even have the courtesy to tone down a bit! It seemed as if they were the only people inside the place! Edna, who I assumed was the manager - just looked on and did nothing to ask them to tone their voices down. I mean, hey - they weren't the only ones in the restaurant right? She should have thought of her other patrons. In my opinion - if the voices get a tad loud, its the duty of the manager to ask the loud guests to tone down a bit - but she just sat there! How about the servers? Well, they were engrossed with listening to the loud jibberish that one even didn't notice my Panget waving right infront of his face! Tah....... It was heavenly when they left - because of the first time (since we got there) there was silence and we didn't have a hard time listening to our table's conversation.

I know that conversations can get loud when it gets exciting - but its common courtesy to tone down a bit - in consideration of the other patrons, right? My friends and I tend to have loud conversations, but we're considerate and sensitive enough to respect other people's air space.

Despite that, I'd still consider going back again. I mean the food was fab! It was just unfortunate that we dined the same night Mr. Taulava's entourage did too! Tsk.. Tsk... Tsk..

RIP: Angel Antonio

I never met her, I never knew her.

But I know she was my good good friend Maymay's best friend since High School.

I've heard her name so many times in passing, but we never met.

One of the things I distinctly remember was that - Angel was assigned(or volunteered) to make Maymay's wedding AVP - and after making the AVP, she told Maymay that she was sawa na with looking at our Beijing barkada pics because there were so many! Hahaha...

I know for a fact that she is loved by many.

I know too that she will be missed.

For all your wonderfulness Ange - to Maymay (and to your friends) - Thank you!

I can't believe how affected I am, I mean - I didn't know her at all! Is it because her best friend is one of my good good good friends? I consider Maymay a sister (as we were really in Beijing) and I feel her pain, I knew how important Ange was to her..

Rest in Peace, Angel Antonio!

My prayers are with you and your family. Always.

Looking for a WEDDING SINGER!!

Friday, February 13, 2009

Grabbed from this site

Yes, for the first time ever - I am using my blog to help find that supplier.

I am looking for a wedding singer. Nope, not the host slash wedding singer - I mean a wedding singer, wedding singer like Adam Sandler in The Wedding Singer, sans the outfit of course! Hahaha!!

Okay - so here's what we need:

- A band that can play 80's hits (my Panget's panahon), 70's (our folk's panahon), 90's (my panahon) and contemporary songs. We don't like those cheesy love songs (Michael Buble type-ish, but if done in a not so cheesy with oh-so unique flair - game on!)

- They should be able to play fast songs too! But not too loud naman, remember - we have oldies in the house!! (but when they leave, rock-on!)

- Singer should enunciate english words properly while singing :) (this is the OC in me talking!!)

- They should be able to switch from fast to mellow-ish songs seamlessly (strict ba?!)

- They should be able to play Tagalog songs too!! Bwahahahahahahaha!! :)

- MUST be a Happy Happy band (really friendly! I hate masungit and large headed bands - Sorry!!)

So, any suggestions? Know of anyone? Referrals? Applicants? Hahaha!!

Email me at

Thanks! Thanks! :)

I just got my newest toy and I looooooooove it!! :)

Since (late) last year - I have been yearning for a new Sony Ericsson phone. I've asked my Panget to gift me with one - but nothing happend. The price of the G900 (the phone I wanted) went up to a freaking Php19,000.00 during the holidays!

Just 2 weeks ago - I checked the price again and saw that it dropped to Php13,600.00! I was ready to buy one already - I sort of did my 'goodbye W710i' thing - but well, many things happend in between (that caused the delay) so, till now - its still my 'main' phone. I somehow forgot that I needed to get a new phone..

But last night - I was given a spanking new W760!! :) Weeeeeeehaaa!! Who would have thought that toot toot would give me a brand new phone? Not me - in a million years!! (Yes, I've used that line before, Hahaha!!) I was ecstatic!! I don't know if I was ecstatic that it was a new phone or if it was a Sony Ericsson phone! (I fell in love with SE phones - they're the BEST!)

Like a child with a new toy - I slept at 2am because I was tinkering with the phone!!

I love it! I absolutely love it!! :)

And it came - with perfect timing!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!! :)
