What/Where I Ate - Red Kimono

Red Kimono is located only at The Terraces - Ayala Center here in Cebu City. Honestly, I do not like Japanese food, but I was partly thrilled at the thought of having dinner in this restaurant.  Maybe because I got hold of that promo card and coupons 'they' (advertising pips hired for Red Kimono promotions) offered to us at the office earlier that afternoon last August 25, 2010.

Salmon Cream n' Cheese Roll
the freebie: Ebi Maki
I forgot the name of this food but it did taste good that's why i gave it an eight (8).
Chicken Terriyaki Bento, rated it half from the perfect score since I think  Rai-RaiKen's version of this bento is much tastier.
we dined alfresco so I got to capture the changing lights of this 5-leaf roof
I somewhat matched to the restaurant's theme colors: Red and Black wearing a cropped D&G long-sleeve top with red/white/black rhinestones and a pair of red flats with micro polka dots in black
my 'silver-wares' for the night and white gold diamond…

What/Where I Ate - Joven's Grill at Parkmall

Was introduced to Joven's Grill  by a colleague while I was in search for another EAYC(eat-all-you-can) here in the city.  So my family, a newbie and I went there and tried to 'assess' their foods.  I am rating their restaurant (inclusive in my rating are the foods, presentation, variety and the place): 7  I was not that gastronomically satisfied since the place was crowded and we were forced to eat outside with a candlelight only.  Anyway, I was somehow happy since, at long last, I have finally discovered the HELLO KITTY goodie that I have been looking for.  Thought it was a cake but it was pure chocs, still ok anyway.

cakes and pastries are from Cream N' Bake and sold at Joven's Grill

and I did take home the whole body Hello Kitty chocolate

the  h o t el - g a l l e r y :
Ponce Suites
is located at Corner Roads 3 & 4 Doña Vicenta Village, Bajada, Davao City.

How I find out about this hotel?   I was in search for places to stay for our trip in Davao and when I clicked on the link to the suite, I was astounded with all the optical grandeur.  From then on, my excitement never stopped till the day we arrived at the lobby of the hotel-gallery.  The place was far better from the pictures that were posted on their website.  Aside from the outrageous virtual masterpieces in and out of the hotel gallery, what I liked about the place is that Ponce Suite is situated in a peaceful, safe, quite village, so unlikely right?  It is indeed a must-see for art lovers like me.   It did quench my craving for the arts.
the  a r t i s t:
Kublai Ponce-Millan, who created all these giant works, was born on July 8, 1974 in Cotabato City. He finished schooling at the University of the Philippines with a degree of Fine Arts. After which, he dedicated…

What/Where I Ate - Food Tripping in Cagayan De Oro

B r e a k f a s t: 
Missy Bonbon located at Limketkai Mall Lapasan Highway
they served meals, pastries and gelato

Missy Pancake (a breakfast set - without drinks) costs Php: 95.00 rated this 3 (oops, sorry, I'm just being an honest food critic) since the pancakes were to chewy, too thick, the caramel was 'un'-sweet Jollibee pancakes are much way better! however, presentation-wise: ok
Steak Breakfast  (a breakfast set still without drinks) costs: Php: 150.00 rated this 4 since the steak was not the steak we expected it to be the eggs made it quite taste better
after breakfast, i tasted their Choco Mint gelato...hmmm..not that ok, sorry again
the breakfast experience at Missy Bonbon was somehow the most expensive meal we had during our whole Mindanao trip... imagine, a breakfast for two costs: Php 390 plus a gelato that costs Php 50.00
overall rating for the breadshop:  6 thanks to the good-feel ambiance of the breadshop, the presentation of their food and the variety of goodies they carry

What/Where I Ate - McDonald's, Shanghai China

McDonald's is never a favorite fastfood but  I can endure eating their chicken fillet and french fries,  except for their burgers.
When we were in Shanghai last June, well, we had lunch at the CPhI Expo site's McDonald's.   NO RICE policy there, (hold true however for other countries' McDonalds').  They have  different sets of value meals and are pricier compared here in the Phils..

I ate value meal B.  Had difficulty consuming everything since everything was 'large'.
I said,
I am not a big fan of McDonald's  but,
eating a value meal at McDonald's in Marina Square - Singapore
was an unforgettable experience.
Everything was LARGE also but the BURGER was really superb.

What/Where I Ate - PINO Filipino Cuisine

It was August 1, 2010 and I spent this day with my usual weekend companions, my family: dad & mom, plus a newbie. Went malling, as usual and we had dinner at one of the EAYC's (Eat-All-You-Can) here in the city: PINO Filipino Cuisine.  Since it was dinner, Php/head was at 350 inclusive of an unlimited iced tea.  Our meal was sumptuous but we have to traverse their staircase since we were just walk-ins and the ground floor was already filled with reservations.  
Overall rating for the EAYC house: 9

ambiance at the 2nd floor

But I was not able to take pictures of the great goodies we ate.
30 minutes earlier before arriving at PINO, we were in Ayala and got a glimpse of Charlie Green  and we listened to his music for a while.   Then got to talk to her mommy too, who is a Cebuana.
