Wednesdate

Went out last night with two of my college friends, Ynna and Clare. We bought gifts for our Christmas Party. I actually already bought mine last Monday. I ended up buying some make-up products instead. Nichido recently released their velvet matte lip pencil and I got the shade Dark Promise. I really really love it. I like it better than the liquid lipsticks from NYX. It’s now my new favorite. It really stays in your lips. Compared to the NYX suede lipstick that I’m using which by the way easily fades when you eat, Nichido’s lip pencil is nothing like that. By the way, it only costs 240php!! So yeah, I am happy with my haul. 🙂

After roaming around the mall we decided to have dinner. At first, Clare wanted to eat at Bonchon because she wanted to try their matcha green tea bingsu. But Ynna is craving for Japanese food. And since we all love Japanese food, we ended up eating at Rosanjin. l ordered their sushi bento. It costs 370php and for me it was worth it. The bento includes Miso Soup, Chicken Karaage, Tempura, 4 pieces Maki, 1 pc Tamagoyaki, and 2 other types of sushi which I don’t know the name. Hahaha. There’s also pineapples, and 2 sides. And for the price I must say that that is a lot of food. It was good. I really love Japanese food.

And yes, I know we already had a lot of food but who doesn’t love desserts? Hahaha. We had some gelato afterwards. The one I’m holding in the photo is the Sundae size worth 230php. It already includes a topping and 3 flavors of gelato. The three of us shared it and got to pick the flavor that we like. I chose Pistachio, while Ynna got the Strawberry Cheesecake, and Clare opted for the Chili Chocolate. At first I was kind of weirded out by the flavor. I’ve heard about the chili chocolate icecream flavor from Bicol but I’m not really into spicy food. The Chili Chocolate though was surprisingly good. At first bite you wouldn’t feel the heat but after a few seconds you’ll be able to feel it. Hahaha.

We were having such a good time that we weren’t able to notice the time. When Clare asked what time it is, I got shocked the moment I looked at my watch ‘cause it was already 11 o’clock. It’s fine though because the dorm is just a few minutes away. Wishing for more happy times like this with my friends. 🙂

Sundate

tumblr_ofw4i27yrk1qaxnsoo1_540

Last Sunday’s sundate with my childhood friend and his girlfriend.

Been craving for Korean food for months!! We were suppose to eat at Woori Gohyang in Matalino Street. Idk if they moved somewhere else or closed down cause it was not there anymore when we checked the place. I hope they didn’t close down because it’s my fave korean resto around the area.

We ended up eating at don day instead which is along Kalayaan Avenue. Cess and I decided to avail the unli pork + buffet for 399 and marion opted for the unli beef for 499 + buffet. The place is actually big and pretty spacious. There’s actually a variety of food to choose from. Although I do not know some of the food we were eating. They should’ve placed a name so people can identify the food. It’s like you have to get and taste it first for you to know what it is. I was kind of disappointed though because they didn’t have gimbap and ddeokbokki 😥

It was still worth it. They had kimchi, dumplings, japchae, bindaetteok (mung bean pancake), seawood soup, there’s actually 3 other kinds of soup in there but I am not familiar with the names, myeolchi bokkeum (spicy stir-fried anchovies), bulgogi and a lot more. They also had desserts and variety of fruits which I loved. Overall I’d probably give this place a rating of 8/10. I enjoyed their food but I wish there was more. Hahaha. Lol. And I wish they’d name their food.

After eating at don day we drove back to fairview. Cess had to buy something at fairview terraces and before going home we decided to drop by at jco to have some coffee and donuts. At this point I was still feeling a litte bit full but I badly wanted to have coffee. I ordered a hot jcoccino and paired it with a grean tea donut. All I did was just to eat and eat. Hahaha. That’s what I’m good at. Ohhh, and also, ruining my friends’ diet. Hahaha.

Pinto Art Museum

pinto

My roommate and I have been planning to go to Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo for weeks. And finally, last Sunday we were able to visit the place. To get to Pinto, you can ride a jeep going to Antipolo and tell the driver to drop you off at Ynares Center and from there you can already take a tricycle. There is a 200php entrance fee and backpacks should be left in the bag counter. So I advise you just bring a small bag with you. Also, its better if you go there on a weekday. Weekends are kind of jam packed with people.

We first had our lunch at their cafe. They have different types of cuisines on their menu. They have Italian, Japanese, Thai etc. We decided to order their Vigan Longganisa Pizza (as per the server its one of their best sellers, I ordered a California Maki (sorry can’t resist Jap food), and Pink Lemonade. The food was great actually. It’s just that we had been waiting for quite a while before we got our food. And there was even a confusion with the table’s orders.

The place is pretty big actually. It has 6 galleries inside. The place is so “instagramable”. A lot of people were taking pictures. It’s so lovely and the entrance fee you’ll pay will be so worth it. I love each and every piece inside. Would definitely go back there. It’s not just full of painting but some other types of art with different kinds of media used.

And since the place was beautiful I wouldn’t miss the chance of having my photos taken. Hahaha. Excuse my face tho. I am not very photogenic. Lol. I actually grabbed some “reference” photos so I can do some poses like what does blogger does. Hahaha.

Also took some shots of Ynnah and Ate Kim. I’ve more photos on my phone and camera that I want to upload. But this will do for now. You can check out my instagram account @riepanini for more photos. We actually stayed there for almost 4 or 5 hours. I kind of got tired roaming around the area. And we haven’t actually checked out all of it. Were planning to go back again with our other friends maybe. You guys should definitely check out Pinto Art Museum.

Saturday Night Hits

_20161002_205433

Went out last  Saturday night with my college friends. Haven’t seen them for months. But even though we don’t see each other often or talk its like nothing have changed. Were still the same crazy people. Hahaha. Lol.

We first went shopping and visited one of our friend’s boutiques in Timog. I bought a jumper, dress, tops, and some make-up. Yay. We then headed to Bubbletea to have some dinner. The never ending Japanese food. Hahaha.

We had Nippon Maki, Royal Dragon Roll and some Gyoza. Everything was good! Japanese food never fails. Hahaha. One of the best cuisines ever!!

We met up with Sarah and stayed at Cable Car to grab a few drinks. We also played beer pong. We met 2 guys and played with them. Got home at 2am already. Ahh. I missed this kind of life. Got my much needed break. Finally got to go out again. Hoping for more nights like this.

Danni’s 7th

Last Saturday the daughter of our family friend celebrated her 7th birthday. It was a barbie themed party and there were pink balloons everywhere! 🙂

There was a candy buffet, potato corner stall, icecream stand and a cotton candy booth. The kids also has a make-over booth where they can have their hair styled and put some make-up on and gems on their faces. (I was too shy to take photos, sorry! haha)

It was also nice because all of my childhood friends were there. 20 years of friendship and counting. I can even remember the last time we were complete so I was really glad to see all of them.

Here is a photo of Danni, the celebrant. And she had a special performance for us. Singing and dancing to the song “What Dreams Are Made Of” 🙂

Kids, kids, kids. Oooh I just love kids! 🙂 This is me and Danni (left photo), and my godson Nathan (right photo).

It was indeed a fun party. Not only did the kids enjoyed but the adults as well. I guess its was really us the adults who really enjoyed because of the booths and stalls of food. Hahahaha. I kept on going back to the candy buffet and got myself some bags of candies.
