See You at CF (Chocolate Fire, That Is)

Finally!  After months of salivating over blog entries I've read about this place, I have finally found myself within the vicinity of Chocolate Fire!

Chocolate Fire

My apologies as I do not have a photo of the interiors since they have a very strict "no picture taking" policy. Except when the food arrives at your table, then you're basically free to do with it whatever you wish.  J

Anyway, here's what I did have:

Pesto Roma (Php280)

Pesto Roma

A pasta dish composed of basil, pine nuts, garlic and tomato, among other good stuff.  It's a very different take on the popular pesto dish.  In a word... yum! 

I've always loved basil (quite evident with the growing bush of it that we have in the yard) and the pairing with tomatoes is simply enjoyable.

You're also given a choice of whether to add chicken or tuna, but personally, this dish is good enough as it is.  Also comes with a nice, thick slice of crusty bread and parmesan cheese!  Heaven!  J

Parmesan cheese and bread

Hot Chocolate (Php120 for a standard cup)

Chocolate Fire is known for their unique chocolate creations (ever heard of sour cream-flavored pringles dipped in chocolate?) 

I could have gone that route and sampled a number of their solid cocoa creations, but I was feeling a tad low and nothing peaks my spirits faster than a hot, steaming cup of chocolate.

Hot chocolate.  Hmmm...

Their hot chocolate is personalized to fit your preferences.  Mine is dark chocolate (of course) with a dash of cinnamon sprinkled with cocoa shavings.  Hmmmm...  I swear I stayed an extra 30 minutes since I was savouring this to the last drop.  Delicious!  Definitely made my day.

Thank you, CF!  Hope to see you again soon!

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!  =)
