Nature's Devastation

Nature's wrath left an awful horrible horrible feeling of desolation, isolation, desperation, cries for help for the destruction left by power super typhoon Yolanda (Typhoon Haiyan). It's heart wrenching to see dead people along the streets, to see them flee storm surge trying not to drown, livelihood gone, houses destroyed, children crying . It's awful. The powerful storm hit across the whole of the Vizayas and death toll could rise  10,000 in Leyte alone..and that's just one province.  It's really really grim.

In this time of calamity. Filipinos are pooling all their sources to help fellow countrymen. Aid Agencies from parts of the world helping..so thank you.






BRONUTS

*edit: So this was 2 weeks ago.. did not get to eat the sweet! Waaah!  Coughing and feeling bad with sore throat :(

I haven't eaten yet.. but looks yummeh! ☺☺☺

Oh Holidays chomp chomp chomp! Yum yum!

Oh man, since the start of the 'ber' months  last week all I've been doing is chomp chomp chomp. I'm bloated! Went to IHOP few days ago and ordered hearty ham omelette plus double pancake strawberry. So Good! Unlimited butter and cream. I don't have pics though. The week prior, was at UP Town Center for dinner and again prior to that, few ago, was at Bonchon. sis brought, Cronuts from Wildflour, Bronuts from bakers dozens, and Yema cake from quezon.  Holidays seasons always gives me this good feeling of wanting eat and be merry.  Heck, 'tis the season to be jolly! plus all the good food finds are everywhere sprouting. Cup cakes, and all kind of sweets. Eating lots of chocolates too. Oh Spiral..gonna visit you soon! ha ha

But wait... again. I wanna have deep dish pizza too! ☺☺☺

CASA VERDE...Verdict

Last weekend 27 October to be exact, after our trick or treat at Rockwell Power Plant, we went  to UP Town Center and ate dinner at Casa Verde. Sis ordered Brian's Ribs, I ordered best sampler, my nephew, the Tavern shrimps, and my bro in law, the  tenderloin.  We didn't order the huge burger.. but maybe we should have. So my verdict. I wasn't thrilled with the food! The price and the serving is good though. For big groups, this is the place to dine if you're on budget. Our bill cost around 1200 for all the food that we ordered and that's cheap. The serving is huge too.  Thumbs up to that.

But wait... there's more. I didn't enjoy the food.:( Buffalo wings was just ok. the blue cheese didn't taste like blue cheese. which made it worse.  The ribs.. the serving was huge, and that's about it. My sis liked it though.  The tenderloin was alright too. Not my type. I only enjoyed the tavern shrimp my nephew ordered, the rest was like bland.  There's just something lacking. must be the taste of each dish,. Maybe we should have ordered their huge burger instead.  I wonder  if it's good.. hmm.  To each his own taste  I suppose. Rubs is still way better! :)

                                                               
Brian's Ribs

Best Sampler

Tavern Shrimps I like
Will go back here to taste the huge burgers. 3 out of 5 for Casa Verde for the taste. 5 for their huge servings.

It's better than cherry coke!


Seriously, cherry coke tastes like syrup. I wanted  A&W  Cream Soda but this will do.

TWG Tea cake, Muffin and Scones....

 I only bought 4 of whats being offered.  The scones I like and the tea cakes not chocolate muffin, not so much but it is good paired with tea  Raspberry mint tea is what I like but didn't order any.  Next time I'll have myself an afternoon tea delight to satisfy my craving. I'm gonna have macarons too.

Chocolate muffin, tea cake and scones

We thought of Cercho (not sure how it's spelled) again it's near the house but it didn't feel right.. nobody was eating and we were sorta wearing house clothes :) so I mentioned Lola Cafe.. and I'm glad I did. we enjoyed the food and the homey feel of the restaurant. We'll comeback for second helpings. We didn't get to try Bottarga pasta aster all

MRT really sucks!

Well whaddaya know. I was just  ranting about MRT  few days back and guess what???  I was late last Friday all because of MRT! I swear it's the worst train station ever! ever! (well, I've never been to India, or Sri Lanka, or Bangladesh.... but still ) Argh! 45 mins queuing from the side of EDSA q.ave to the stairs...then 15 to 20 mins queuing up inside the platform.. Was there at 7:30, was able to ride  8: 50.. that fcking long! And as if it couldn't get any worse than that that,   rush hour 6 pm, Friday, after work, going home. STOP ENTRT in effect. I had to queue again for 15 mins just to go to the platform, then I took the round trip and by the time  we get to to the last station  which is TAFT,  instead of sitting comfortably, was told  to get out because the the shitty train had  problems! WTF! Long story short, I ended up standing the whole train ride!  got stuck with morons!

Well, with all the rant, I still prefer riding the train, than get stuck in EDSA.traffic.

Napster Documentary

 Cool Documentary is from Alex Winter - who starred in Bill and Teds movies with Keanu Reeves

But Bill and Ted never saw anything as cool as Winter's documentary Downloaded: The Digital Revolution, which receives its world premiere March 10 at the interactive/music/film South by Southwest Festival in Austin. It tells how two teenagers, Shawn Fanning and Sean Parker, reinvented the music industry, got crushed and still managed to get rich with such game-changers as Facebook and Spotify. 

Downloaded is about the epochal file-sharing service Napster, dreamed up in 1999, when Fanning was a college dropout living in the closet of his uncle's office.

Winter's film might remind people of the forgotten fact that it was Napster that inspired the first social networking giant Friendster, which Facebook supplanted. "Napster wasn't really about music," says Winter. "To me, Napster was a global community where there had never been one."  Read Full article via Hollywood Reporter

 I wanna see this film.

Solution sucks!

Two wrongs don't make it right but  folks at MRT doesn't see that way!  If you don't the ride MRT everyday rush hour morning and evening, and get stuck with (mostly) morons everyday, you wouldn't understand the rant! The point of riding  shitty MRT is to avoid  EDSA traffic, so why offer chartered bus (only for single journey tickets, mind you!) that will ply the EDSA route knowing it's traffic during rush hour?  Solution sucks! That's all they can offer to the commuters queuing for 30 mins everyday just to get inside the MRT platform and another 20 mins to get inside the train. How about skipping train the minute they see that platform packed with commuters. Ugh!

So view me baby

Yes! A new dress for my blog to bring in for advert money, hopefully! Oh yeah, I'm back as you can see. I'll probably have more of random reviews of restaurants and lean towards  food blog. I'm into food trips.  I wanna check out the restaurants at Maginhawa Street. In the meantime. One  that I'll recommend is 77 resto/bar in Kamuning.. It's good place to unwind. I'll blog more  when I have the photos, it's still my sister camera.

Social Media and Television.. news

I saw this via Mashable How Social Media is Changing the Business of Television. That is so true.

The nightly new shows here have something new to offer the viewing public. See, every time I watch, I noticed that anchors have now been equip with iPads. Before they will just read the new paper and teleprompter. Now, they will will blah blah with the top headlines news and then flip their iPads, they instantly read reactions of views via twitter or FB thereby engaging the viewing public to participate. Socializing with everyone real time, we get to know the pulse and opinion. Pretty soon will probably have SNN... Social News Network. Heh.
