Snowy Christmas: Hobing Ice Cream

This is a post-Christmas celebration with Seasielle’s ever gorgeous awesome friend (her so-called ultimate food buddy), Joan.

After they ate at Genki, they decided to try the Snowy Ice Cream of Hobing ((Managed by a Korean since Snowy Ice Cream originated from them (not sure in this part)).

Well, good thing there was a vacant table when they’ve arrived there. The interior of the place is good.

These pictures are totally awesome (the food and place).

Time for a cold treat. πŸ˜‰

Fancy Japanese Food: Genki Sushi (and the Magic Train)

This is a post-Christmas celebration with Seasielle’s ever gorgeous awesome friend (her so-called ultimate food buddy), Joan.

Well, Seasielle had learn Genki Sushi while watching Poptalk (a Filipino food/travel/gadget/etc TV show) three or two years ago, and made a promise to herself that she will dine there. That promise came true last December 27, 2016 with the company of Joan.

They arrived at the said place around 7:30pm, and took the seat at the end (near the glass window). It was a bit crowded that time for so many reasons (and that’s not the purpose of this article). Anyway, they immediately ordered since Seasielle was really excited (like a child lost in time) so she started to tap the gadget (IPad) and browse for the menu.

The following pictures will let you know what they have ordered, and will give you a preview of the said place. πŸ€—

Seasielle’s rating:
Place: 4 out of 5 stars.
Price: 3.5 out of 5 stars since some are very expensive, and not good for sharing.
Food: 4 out of 5 stars (small servings. Just good for an individual, but the taste, pertaining to what they have ordered, are delicious, it melts in your mouth, and have a long lasting taste).
Service: 5 out of 5 (Definitely great staff).
Overall: 4 stars (satisfied)

Highlight: The delivery train. A very unique idea, and a fascinating one since it is very enjoyable to watch your food being delivered through a train.

If you want to visit Genki Sushi, it is located at the 2nd floor, BGC Stopover, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig

Sawadee Ka: Krung Thai in Metro Manila (Second time Around)

Typical Sunday turned into a wonderful one. πŸ™‚

Its been one and a half years since Seasielle bond with her friend, and two years since she last ate at Krung Thai. “Ber” months had finally arrived, and gatherings are common scenarios you can see in the country. After everything, finally they (Seasielle and Da) shared an everlasting memory.

Krung Thai is a Thailand inspired restaurant located within the public market of Marikina City (a City within NCR, Ph).

The place was a hot catch since it was lunch time; thankfully, Seasielle’s family didn’t wait to be sat since there was a vacant table good for four (4) people.

What’s on the Menu?
They ordered the following:
Vietnamese Spring Roll
Pad Thai
Chicken Satay
Beef tenderloin
Soup (spicy one)
Thai Ice Tea

Total amount spent: Php 1500 + tip since there was no service charge.

Overall Satisfaction Rating: 3.5
Food: 3.5
Place: 4
Price: 3.5

Reason/s:
The first time that they tried it, everything was sumptuous, and truly melts into your mouth. Now: everything was good for commercial and/or fast food taste.
Then, the price was a bit expensive for the value of the food.
Customer service was good. They still managed to be courteous even though one can see that they were a bit tired already. (Maybe because of the hot weather).
Finally, the location is a bit hard to find for first timers, but since it was their second time around, Seasielle would give it a pop points now.

Overall: It was a well-spent Sunday, and according to her friend she enjoyed the meal very much.

God bless everyone.

Wonderful Birthday: Gastronomic Adventure Served by Ticxs

Finally, got a chance to try this awesome Plate Culture place! I’ve learn this one from watching Poptalk, and I’m so awed after I’ve got a taste of their own food.

I’ve been waiting for this day to happen. The first time I inquired for my father’s birthday celebration last April, they told me they weren’t available on my prefer date; I was left heartbroken. I do forget about Gastronomic as months passed by; suddenly, Plate Culture popped up on my screen, and I knew from that day on that it would be a great one.
I’ve inquired once again in Gastronomic, and fortunately, they’re available on my mother’s birthdate. Yahoo!

I already reserved the slot for my prefer date earlier September. Fast forward, the day I’ve been waiting for had arrived.

We rode an Uber going to the said place, and had a “tough” time finding their house since the driver entered the wrong street, good thing Mr. Chino saw us and help us to find their house.

Well, I’m not very good in detailed stories so I’ll just post photos for your understanding.

Thank you.

Biyaheng Pilipinas: Sakay na sa Tatak Pinoy (Gerry’s Jeepney)

Last October, a friend of our employer treated us since one of our officemates did a favor for her.

They decided to dine at Gerry’s Jeepney which is a new attraction within the perimeters of Kapitolyo.

Jampacked Friday especially during lunch time, so we were flattered to be sat inside a Jeepney themed function room.

They (our boss&her friend) ordered our food named “Pasig” which includes the following: rice, inihaw na pusit, alimasag&tahong, hipon, inihaw na isda, nilagang okra+talong and talbos na kamote, and 6 iced tea and soup. This one cost Php 1680 and is good for 4-6persons that why they ordered another one. For the rice you can choose whether plain, bagoong, or garlic; for the hipon (shrimp in English) you can choose crispy or halabos; and for the isda(fish in English) you can choose bangus, hito, or tilapia.

Well, it was such a wondrous experience. We came in hungry, and we left the said place full and happy.

The Unexpected Everything: An Earthling Day to Meet the Lovely Morgan Matson

“Morgan Matson is coming to town!” πŸ‘Ό

After almost a year of being absent for book signing events, finally, I made it for Matson’s.

A lot has changed since the last time I attended a book signing event. Anyway, I won’t make a long-dramatic-post since I have nothing much to tell.

Papa, as usual, lined up for me. He got number forty-two (42). I only have two books of Matson because I can’t afford to buy everything since I’m currently saving up for something. I bought Since You’ve Been Gone this January, and The Unexpected Everything last month.

The said event took place at National Book Store – Glorietta branch last September 18, 2016. I arrived at around 3pm and basically just in time for the signing. I’ve missed the program, and according to some bibliophiles, they gave Morgan a birthday cake, and sang for her. So disheartened to miss that moment.😒

I didn’t say anything when I met her (Morgan) except from the fact that I just responded “I’m good” when she asked how am I; then, she said what a nice name do I have. Well, thank you for that Morgan.

After that said event, my father and I went to JCo to eat some snacks; unknowingly, I already have other plans so I excused myself and told my father I’ll just text him.

What was my other agenda? Go and visit Baskin Robbins and get some pint of ice cream. Yes, I’ve been craving for Baskin, and what a perfect time to do it but that one fine Saturday. After almost a week of stressful work, surrounded by chaotic officemates, I can’t help but thanked Baskin Robbins for existing in this world.

I ordered a pint of Love Potion (honestly I don’t know the ingredients of that flavor). How do I end up ordering that one? Mama told me it is delicious, and for me not to order strawberry for the nth time in my life.

After ordering a pint, I walked around Glorietta and notice that there was an on-going event. Yes, such a nice move for me to go to that event, and let my ice cream turned into water. πŸ™

Anyway, will tell you guys about that event in another post.

Xoxo,
Seasielle❀

August: Reunions, Moods, and Wonderful Moments

Gloomy days were gone;
Wonderful moments have arrived.

Ten years had gone by;
Replaced by one month of laughter, memories, and happiness shone over each others faces.

Old friends came by to say “Hello, even just for a minute.”
Goodbyes were longer; another day spent thinking of wonderful memory to treasure.

Life on the path of brick road;
Walking along green meadows;
Chirping of birds hovered all over;
Indeed, memories of last month will be painted wonderfully in each other’s heart.

Getting old, but not too old for wonderful moments.

Awkward moments were gone; only laughter were left.

Wonderful 10 years of friendship πŸ€—
