Food Tripping at Dusit Thani Manila (2 of 3)

Eating is a favorite past time of both Hubby and I.  We just love trying out new places to chow down.  And our staycation at Dusit Thani Manila provided us with another opportunity to loosen up our belts and hanker down for some well-deserved treats!


We don't normally order food through room service but since Hubby and I checked in on Good Friday, we had no other choice but to do so.  Our orders? 

- Ham, tomato and mozarella in basil-flavored focaccia bread sandwich with side salad (Php300 plus) for me;
- Kare-kare with rice (Php525) for my home-sick Hubby;
- a glass of mango juice (Php205) and iced tea (Php200 plus) to wash it all down.

The Kare-kare, especially the bagoong, was superb!  And it came in such a huge portion too.  As for the sandwich, I really loved the basil-flavored focaccia bread.  Unfortunately our orders came a little late, hence the bottom got soaked and a little soggy due to the mozerella.

Anyone who has read my previous posts knows that I love real fruit in my juices.  Dusit Thani Manila's mango juice doesn't disappoint.  Same with their iced tea (a house blend) that Hubby loved to bits!


And of course, who could ever pass up on a good hotel buffet breakfast?  Served at Basix, one of their signature restos, the breakfast buffet  fare consisted of both Eastern (Filipino, Indian, Chinese and Japanese); and Western-inspired dishes

Their must-trys?  Their oh-so-creamy chocolate milk and chicken teriyaki.  Avoid the hash brown, though.  Didn't like it at all.  =(


  1. A very honest review! Everything looks so yum and the atmosphere is very welcoming and warm!

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
