Slice High St

I have a new favorite place – Slice High St.  It’s located in the new block of Boni High Street, right beside Jamba Juice.  They have wonderful, heavenly desserts.  My favorites are the Choco Yema and the Morning Glory.  Other notables are the deep dish chocolate chip cookie, and banana pudding.  And they have good food too.  I was able to try their Barbecue Chicken Rice Melt (they use brown rice) and I couldn’t get enough of it!  Slice High St is my new “comfort place”.



The dandelion…

What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again. And only Peeta can give me that.

My Jujucleanse Experience

Level 2 Jujucleanse

I found out about Juju Cleanse because of a tweet, and I immediately checked out their website.  I researched a bit, and decided that I would try a 1 day cleanse during a long weekend.  I wanted a do it on a long weekend so that I will have a couple of days to recover, if necessary.  I wasn’t sure how the cleanse will affect.  And so the Holy Week was the perfect time for it.



Smart LTE

I was fortunate to be chosen to be part of the closed beta testers group for Smart LTE.  I got my dongle from the Jump Experience center in Megamall last Thursday and tried to set it up that same night.   More…


Sebastian’s Malted Milkbar

Dive Bar - Malted Milkbar

I LOVE malt chocolates.  I love any chocolate drink with malt (hello there Ghirardelli chocolate drink from Cheesecake Etc.!) I used to love Horlicks when it was widely available.   Which is why when I read about Sebastian’s Malted Milkbar, I knew I just had to try it!  It was on my mind for a week, but I didn’t have time to pass by Podium.  I was finally able to go last week and WOW, IT WAS AWESOME!  The ice cream itself, malt-vanilla , was so good I could have eaten it alone.  But it was so much better with the frozen chocolate and crushed maltesers around it!  This is a must-try guys!


Steak 101

Last friday we had dinner at Mike’s house.  He served us steaks and mashed potatoes and IT WAS AWESOME!  I learned so much from him, and I think the learnings are worth sharing!



Black Friday Sale!

I have been “preparing” for the Black Friday Sale for about a month now.  I talked to a friend in the US and agreed on an arrangement, where the stuff I will buy online will be sent to her home.  She will then send them to me via Balikbayan box within December.  I have also saved the items I am interested in to my wishlists.  I AM READY! 😛  And then I was pleasantly surprised to find out that has already started the sale.

My box will be full of the following items: DVD, Blu Ray, beddings and bath towels.  Random, yes, but the latter two I really need for our condo. :)

This year, I will not forget that Apps will also be on sale – I am looking forward to that as well.

List of ‘Groupon’ Sites in the Philippines

***UPDATED LIST!!! (as of May 6, 2012)***


I’ve always loved shopping. And after I ‘discovered’ the joys of online shopping, there was no turning back. So naturally, when these Groupon-type websites were launched, I just had to try them out. And now, I’m hooked.

My two favorite is:

Deal Grocer

DealGrocer – This is different from the rest because they only offer high-end products and services.  As of this update, I already have a total of 35 vouchers from them.  No issues with the payments nor the use of the vouchers.  All of the payments were made via Paypal.

Some sites that you may want to check:


A-Deals – This is Ayala’s deals site.  They feature deals from their merchants.  Best deals are the movie deals!  Check them out.
