Figaro's All-Day Breakfast by Chef Karl Marxist Tan

Rainy days are here, and just like anybody else, it is so hard to leave our bed on cold mornings. It's even harder when you know that you have to leave your bed and head to office for work. And most of the time, we came rushing into things that we forgot to have the most important meal of the day - the breakfast.

But did you know that Figaro has something new for all of us that I know we'll all be having a hard time to resist. Think of the smell of a freshly cooked garlic rice, the sizzling sound of tuyo and the mouth-watering  look of a perfectly cooked sunny-side up egg. Or, the sweet and sour smell of longganisa or the delectable aroma of corned beef...? Now, you're getting hungry, right? Hahahaha! Me too!

But no need to worry, because the new Breakfast Meals of Figaro are available ALL DAY! As in from the store opening til its closing! Isn't that fun?

Now, you can enjoy a decent and sumptuous breakfast in you favorite Figaro branch.
And these are not just the typical breakfast that you can see in any coffee shop. These are the ultimate Filipino breakfast dishes/ comfort foods that we all love!

With the impalpable taste of the young generation when it comes to fashion, BUM Equipment comes with a great idea of giving the new generation a sense of fashion and functionality all rolled into one with their dark, black and emo Holiday 2010 Collection.

Manila Beer rocks Manila Day!

As Manilenos celebrate the 439th founding anniversary of the City of Manila comes a new breed of beer that you will surely never forget - the Manila Beer.

It's about time, I guess, to take pride for the return this of beer with its new 100 percent malt that'll be taking the country by storm.

Though, I didn't catch some of the performers, the launching of Manila Beer on Manila Day at Rajah Sulayman Park at Malate, Manila was full of awesome performers that awakens the night of the "now" peaceful Manila.

With the performance from Sandwich, Pedicab, Diego, Rico Blanco, Hotdog, Parokya ni Edgar, Up Dharma Down, Spongecola, 6cyclemind, Callalily, Kamikazee, Chicosci, Radio Aactive Sago and Gen. Luna, almost the whole Roxas Boulevard was closed to accommodate all the spectators.

Taste the dream at O’Sonho

If there’s a cuisine in the world that we can say resembles to our own Filipino cuisine, that’ll be the European cuisine. But, as well know, European cuisine is still divided into a lot of parts that really made the whole of Europe a haven when it comes to art of food. And one of the cuisines that really stands out and world –renowned is the Portuguese cuisine.

Famous from their simple ingredient but very distinct taste, did you know that you can have an intimate Portuguese dining experience here in Metro Manila. Eastwood Mall is very proud to say that O’sonho is now open!

O’sonho which means “The Dream” is the latest offering of Eastwood Mall in Libis, Quezon City.

And last night, I had a great experience dining at this very new place. *wink*

The prices are not that bad given the quality and quantity of food they serve.

ToyCon 2010

They're getting bigger and better as Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectible Convention celebrated their 9th year at the Megatrade Halls of SM Megamall!

Who doesn't love toys, right? May it be for girl, boy, bakla at tomboy, you can find it here at the 9th ToyCon! And really, at this age, I enjoyed it as much as the kids who went there to shop for their favorite cartoon characters at a very low price, watch their favorite cartoon and online game charters played by the cosplayers who competed for the best cosplayers of the Toycon 2010 and mingle with their fellow toy collectors to learn what's cool and hot about toys and other collectibles.

I heART Makati!

I've been working here in Makati for more than five years now, and to be honest with you, I'm one of those photo enthusiasts who are really eager to take photos of the sky-scrapping buildings here. Unfortunately, for some security reasons, taking photos of these work-of-arts are prohibited.

Well... Not until last Saturday! Hahahahahahahahaha!

I was one of the lucky few (again!) who were invited to join the "I heART Makati, I heART the Philippines, I heART Being FREE" photo contest. In this contest, we were allowed to take pictures of these wonderful buildings, landscapes and man-made gardens that made this place the central business district of the Metropolis.

Though, I'm not a photographer myself, (that's why I feel so lucky that day) I got a chance to join on this contest and appreciate Makati's Central Business District on a quiet Saturday morning.

Geared with nothing but my Sony camera, which felt really nothing compared to the DSLRs of the professional photographers and some amateur photographers who were there, I went straight to Ayala Triangle Garden to register my name and prepared for this fun and exciting photo walk in Makati.

Eden Cheese Brought Home the Bacon!

It’s official!

Kraft Eden Cheese now holds the Guinness World Record for the Most Different Dishes on Display. With the gracious help of Magsaysay Institute of Hospitality and Culinary Arts (MIHCA), they just beat India, gaining another Guinness World Record for our country. Yey!

It was India who first had this record with 4, 668 dishes displayed, but last December 14, 2009, Kraft Food Philippines and MIHCA amazed the whole world with their 5,845 cheese-infused dishes, and it only took six months until Guinness World Records officially announces that the Philippines is now the record holder for this title. Whoopee!

I was one of the lucky few who witnessed when Kraft Foods and MIHCA prepared these 5,845 dishes, and I was so grateful to be there at Araneta Coliseum during that time because even though I was just one of the spectators, it felt like I was part of the whole success of this dream. It was really hair- rising. Check out my World's Cheesiest Event Ever blog.

My 27th Birthday Cake.

I didn't plan anything on my birthday - well, maybe except that I wanna attend a mass at Baclaran that day - but I'm so glad that thay day turned out so well like I planned it all! God is really good to me, I  know. :-)

I always love having a cake on my birthday.

On my 25th birthday, I remember, my superfriends prepared something really cool for me. They bought 24 little tart-cakes and one bigger cake, and each tart-cake had a candle that I had to blow. We had dinner that night at Gerry's Grill at SM Mall of Asia, and after that fun dinner, they took me to the seaside area where concrete blocks were placed to serve as seats. There, they opened a box containing their gifts to me, 24 cute little tart-cakes and one a little bigger cake. They arranged it til it looked like this.

Angel's Pizza Pasta Combo

If you are tired of having the same old pizza from that same old pizza parlor or you just realized that it was too expensive, well, I guess the heaven heard your rants and gave you something that is more affordable and satisfactorily delicious. Presenting, a gift from heaven brought down unto us - the Angel's Pizza.

Me and my fellow blogger-friends had a wonderful pig out as we were all invited to try the newest pizza parlor in town. Angel's Pizza Pasta Combo has 8 branches here in the Metropolis Manila and 1 in Dagupan City.

My 27th Birthday!

Gahd! I'm tooooooo old! Ugh!
Hahaha! Well, I'm happy, so who cares about the numbers, eh? Heheh.

Last night, one of my wishes was to have some peace of mind. And God is, indeed, really good. He granted my wish. Since school days starts rolling and my parents had some appointment with their doctors, I have the whole house by myself whole morning til afternoon! Hahaha! Thank you, God! You're the best!

Then, 3pm came, I left home to attend a mass in Baclaran Church. And since my birthday falls on Wednesday, I'm expecting a jam-packed Baclaran Church, but when I got there, I got inside the church easily and listened to mass peacefully. Again, thank you, God! You are really the best!

As I was about to leave Baclaran Church, my aunt called me and said that she on her way to Becky's Kitchen. Wee! We met there and she bought me a nice and very delicious Coffee Cream Cake! Thank you, Tita Zeny! Muah! I love the cake!
