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˜‰

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.

It’s More Fun in the Philippines: 31st Negros Trade Fair (One Sweet Spot)

Hi there earthling creatures, I’m back! πŸ™‚ Today’s agenda: Tell the wonders of Negros Trade Fair.

Remember the last post I did about meeting Morgan, and how I ended up in an event? Well, this is the coverage of that said event. For those who haven’t read it, the title of that said blogpost is, “The Unexpected Everything: An Earthling Day to Meet the Lovely Morgan Matson.”

Strolling around Glorietta while carrying my pint of ice cream from Baskin Robbins, I’ve noticed that there’s an on-going event in their event hall so I’ve decided to explore what’s in store.

The said event was created to honor the inner treasures of Negros. Meaning an exhibit of Negros’ products – from food up to clothing. Well, it was crowded and everyone was up to have a taste of its food, and its originally handcrafted products. Maybe lots of you are wondering what’s Negros; well, it is a place located somewhere in Visayas (never been there so I can’t tell most of you about it. Honestly, I can narrate something since I’ll probably search google, but since I’m a bit lazy, I hope you can just do that).

Back to my experienced, I easily got hooked to Jarvis Gourmet Foods while roaming around since it was one of the nearest stall I saw upon entering the venue. Well, I bought 3 pieces ensaymada flavored dulce leche for only Php 100. (Nice find especially since I’m looking forward for a snack during office breaks). Then, I’ve tasted their spreads; yes, I’ve been ultimately guilty since I bought one – Saluyot Cheese Spread. Of course, my guilty pleasure did not stop there. I even strolled to the entire parameters of that place, and even saw Joel Torre since his restaurant named “Inasal sa Dasalan” was one of the food exhibitors. Well, I bought some delicacies from the Province of Negros, and I swear it was heaven sent. Name of store: El Ideal. πŸ™‚ Lots of stall to explore, but due to exhaustion, and not enough budget, I wasn’t able to buy and try almost half of what was there. Spare me for some apologies since I wasn’t able to take proper pictures of some stalls as well in the said event since it was jampacked. Anyway, will definitely look forward for events like this one since treasuring the wonders of Philippines is really one magnificent thing to do to attract tourists, and to inculcate to other Filipinos the blood of glory that lies in our culture.

P.S. Next time, will bring lots of money to be prepared.

Xoxo,

Seasielle

As promised, here are the not-so-blurred-photos. πŸ˜‚

The Not-so-Wonders of Eating: Diner on the 16th

August is known for its gloomy weather: non-stop rain which causes floods, and mood swing for others.

The cold atmosphere made us (my sister&I) more hungry than before; since we’ve watched Taste Buddies went to grab some bite from Diner on the 16th, and even recommended it, we’ve decided to pamper ourselves on its menu.

It was a blockbuster rainy Wednesday for Diner on the 16th; we’ve just took the seat near the bar for us to be accommodated inside. (Take note: there’s no table on that particular side; one of the personnel just brought the table outside and placed it there just to accommodate us; good customer service πŸ™‚

My sister and I decided to order Soy Ginger Glazed Chicken and Ube Waffles for Php 295. The said menu includes the following: 3pcs Soy Ginger Glazed Chicken and 4mini slices of Ube Waffles.
Diner on 16th is best known for their milkshakes; hence, that was our chance to indulge on their milkshakes. I ordered Diner on 16th’s Signature Milkshake for a price of Php 190. (Strawberry Cotton Candy Cone+Chocolate milk and Strawberry flavored pretzels (which I think is the one you can buy from the grocery store)+Strawberry Chocolate and Caramel Syrup+Custard biscuits+Chocolate covered mallows) In short, diabetes overload to its highest level; while my sister ordered White Chocolate Strawberry Milkshake for a price of Php 189. (White Chocolate Syrup+Strawberry Covered Biscuit Stick+Strawberry Donut+Wafer Stick+Strawberry Filled Mini Cookies).

Overall Satisfaction – Rating scale of 5 (5 being the highest):

Venue: 3
Reason/s: The said establishment is located in front of Ace Water Spa, but you have to walk in an alley since it is inside.

Food: 3
Reason/s: Nothing special. I think it is overrated because the waffles was just two slices which was cut into four; the soy ginger glazed chicken was all wings; the milkshakes ingredients were all available in grocery stores (I mean, it was already made; no effort exerted except for the decorations of those said ingredients), also nothing special on its taste.

Value for Money: 3
Reason/s: Somehow it was a new experience for us, but not really worth it base on the food they serve+service charge applies.

Recommendation:
I still do recommend this place to all food enthusiasts. Try, explore, and rate your experience since we are all entitled of our own.

Thank you, and God bless!
