Quiz Night and Beer Pong at Wingman at The Collective

There's always something new every time Team Aldous celebrates its anniversary. This year, we got to spend it at Wingman at The Collective for a Quiz Night and Beer Pong night. I don't usually get to go out for such activities so it was nice that my first time was with fun people that I usually go to food blog events with.

It was my first time as well to go The Collective and Wingman's branch there really stands out. Wingman is not that spacious but people keep on coming during our visit. The interiors are very manly and the bar is a perfect photo spot.

Top 5 Places to Eat in Guam

My dad, who wasn't able to go with us on our Guam trip, gave my sisters and I shopping allowance for the said trip. Since the only plan I had back then was to go to the beach, I offered my shopping money as food allowance for everyone. Thus, we were able to go food tripping during our second and third day. Anyway, here's a list of awesome and accessible food establishments that should be visited in Guam:

1. Jamaican Grill

Chicken and Ribs Family Platter - $52.95

Get your Comfort Food Fix at Fat Daddy's Smokehouse

Who can resist a juicy rack of perfectly smoked ribs? Definitely not me! I am not exactly a meat lover, but I always find smoked and grilled meat irresistible. Lucky for me, I was invited to an event at a restaurant in Quezon City that has mastered pork spare ribs and that is Fat Daddy's Smokehouse. 

Fat Daddy's Smokehouse is currently located at Marikina and UP Town Center in Katipunan, QC. My blogger friends and I were able to visit the latter branch. I was quite impressed at how spacious their UP Town Center branch is. Every spot is literally Instagram-able - walls have cartoon-like artwork, light bulbs are creatively dangling from the ceiling, and stools and seats are chic as well.

Eat Clean and Healthy at Salad Bowl PH

I've been sick during the past few days and such have made me consider going back to being a vegetarian. While I haven't made a decision yet, there was one blog event that made me totally consider going on a green diet and that is my recent visit at Salad Bowl. My blogger friends and I went all the way to Molito in Alabang to try out their healthy choices.

Salad Bowl opened its doors to the public last year and it has been frequented by many ever since, including celebrities, among others. At first, I was quite intimidated by the idea of going to an organic salad restaurant as I don't find comfort in legit healthy eating. Also, it's not a place I would normally visit. But all my doubts were definitely gone as soon as we were able to try out the first dish that was served to us.

Authentic Japanese Dining in Tagaytay at Aozora Japanese Cafe + Bistro

I am finally free and back to blogging! But please allow me to tell more about the past few months in another blog post. :) Anyway, here's a long overdue post of a Japanese restaurant that I truly enjoyed. We all know that authentic Japanese restaurants are not so hard to find in Manila anymore. They are literally everywhere here. But in Tagaytay, there is one that truly stands out.

Aozora Japanese Cafe + Bistro

Aozora Japanese Cafe and Bistro is located at the beautiful and elegant Domicillo Hotel. Here you can have a scenic view of the Taal Lake, which is fitting because Aozora literally means, Blue Sky, in Japanese. But reasons to visit Aozora does not end there. Their authentic Japanese offerings make them an ultimate dining destination in Tagaytay. 

Only the freshest ingredients are served at Aozora

The Lake District: Comfort Filipino Food with a Twist

I was in Tagaytay a few weeks back for a series of events, one of which was a trip to a relatively new Modern Filipino restaurant - The Lake District. I think visiting The Lake District was very timely since it was raining hard that night and when experiencing such weather, nothing beats comfort food or home cooked meals. 

The Lake District

The Lake District has a modern rustic interior - brick walls, contemporary fixtures, and comfortable seats. I personally love their spacious bar. There's also a spot near the restroom consisting of a red wall filled with lights where you could do a mini photoshoot (which we did).

Mama Lou's Opens at Ayala Malls The 30th

Mama Lou's never fails to make me feel at home! I know I've already featured Mama Lou's in my blog before for their Evia Lifestyle Center opening, but I guess there's always something new to try every time I visit. My recent visit at their latest branch at Ayala Malls The 30th was quite nostalgic. The rustic vibe and hearty meals seem all familiar. And I get to enjoy it with old and new blogger friends. :)

As usual, Mama Lou's was packed during our visit. Their branch at Ayala Malls The 30th wasn't as spacious as the one in Evia Lifestyle Center (which had two levels) but it could accommodate quite a number of guests. Of course, the crowd isn't just a hype. I believe it is mainly attributable to their hearty and homey dishes that are reasonably priced. Anyway, here are some of the dishes that we were able to try that night:

End Your Day Right at After All Bar and Grill

After a long day at work, there is nothing more fun and entertaining than hanging out with friends and family over good food. This idea was basically how a new resto-bar, After All Bar and Grill, was conceptualized. After All was started by a group of friends who felt that fun and business can go together, that friendship should last forever, and that a resto-bar set up can best achieve this objective, where there is good food, good music, and good laughter.

After All is conveniently located at SM Jazz Mall in Makati. It's a perfect after-office destination especially for those working within the area. I would also recommend going there for lunch where you could enjoy their food together with your office mates. During the day it's a hip lunch spot, but at night it becomes a chill bar with bands starting to play at eight in the evening everyday.

Have a Taste of Ilocos at Fariñas Ilocos Empanada

For authentic Ilocano dishes, there is no other place to go here in Metro Manila than Fariñas Ilocos Empanada (or FIE). With more than 15 branches all over Metro Manila, Batangas, and Cavite areas (six of which are open 24/7), you can get your Ilocano cuisine fix right away. And for those coming from Ilocos, I am pretty sure these dishes would make you feel at home. I know that the first thing that would pop up your head upon hearing Fariñas would be their famous Ilocos Empanada. But there's actually more to FIE than their empanadas. During a recent visit at their Malingap branch, we were able to try out their newest offerings.

Join and Win a Goody Bag of Tangled Items from Disney Channel

Disney Channel recently launched its newest series, “Tangled: The Series” starring one of my favorite Disney princesses, Rapunzel. Premiering Sunday, May 21 at 11:30AM (Mal/Phil), the series is set between the stories told in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ acclaimed 2010 film “Tangled” and its short film “Tangled Ever After”. 

With a new visually vibrant animation style inspired by Rapunzel’s drawings in the original film, the show follows Rapunzel on her adventures as she acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom, and the people of Corona. Along the way, her irrepressible spirit and natural curiosity about the world lead her to realize that there is so much more she needs to learn before she can accept her royal destiny as Princess of Corona. 

At the heart of the series is Rapunzel’s relationship with her friends and family. Beloved characters from the feature film accompany Rapunzel on her journey, including love interest Eugene Fitzherbert (aka Flynn Rider); her loyal chameleon sidekick, Pascal; her no-nonsense, dutiful horse, Maximus; and the Snuggly Duckling Pub Thugs. The series will introduce Cassandra (voiced by Eden Espinosa), a tough-as-nails lady-in-waiting who becomes Rapunzel's confidante; and builds on her relationship with her parents, King Frederic (Clancy Brown) and Queen Arianna (Julie Bowen). 

Rapunzel's relatable, heartfelt and comedic stories model the importance of building and nurturing relationships, and of exploration and self-discovery. With her strength, confidence, positive disposition and creativity, she is a role model for young viewers who are learning to take on new responsibilities just as she is. 

To celebrate Rapunzel’s grand return across Southeast Asia, Disney Channel presents the multi-platform character hunt Tangled Quest. From 21 May to 30 June, kids and families can take part by snapping a picture of Rapunzel, Eugene, Maximus or Pascal with the Tangled Quest insignia on Disney Channel and Disney-owned social platforms and upload it on the Tangled Quest website (www.tangledquest.com). 80 lucky winners will stand a chance to win exclusive Tangled-themed goody bags.

Since Disney Channel is feeling extra generous, it is sponsoring a giveaway through the LBD and Onesies blog! 4 sets of goody bags containing Tangled items (tote, pouch, tumbler, and a Rapunzel doll) are up for grabs. Head on over to the Rafflecopter app to join. :)


This giveaway is open for PHILIPPINE RESIDENTS ONLY! :)

The giveaway will run from June 20 to June 30 only.

Winners will be chosen by me based on the answers you'll give on your Facebook shares. Winners will have 48 hours to respond to my email with their shipping details. Otherwise, I'll be picking a new winner/s.

Prize will be shipped directly to the winner. :)

De-stress with a Staycation at KL Tower and Serviced Residences

I was supposed to make this review during the Holy Week break as it was then the perfect time to go for a staycation. But this post has been long overdue because I got busy with finals and graduation (which I will be talking about in another post). Anyway, I honestly believe that there's no perfect time for a staycation. Whenever you feel like you need time away from your busy life, there are places such as KL Tower and Serviced Residences that can offer you a relaxing and stress-free break.

We paid KL Tower a visit a few months back. It was during my last semester in law school so I was extremely stressing out. I could say that this staycation event definitely helped me relax a bit. I actually wasn't familiar with KL Tower prior my visit, except for some Instagram posts about the place that I've encountered. FYI, KL Tower Makati is actually one of the serviced residences that Hospitality Innovators Inc. manages. It opened in February 2014 and has been catering mostly to corporate clients ever since.

Soban K-Town Grill goes South!

Honestly, I am not very likely to hit South just to dine. But I have to say that the opening of Soban K-Town Grill at Alabang Town Center was an exception. I am definitely not one to pass when it comes to one of my favorite dishes - Korean barbecue. Soban, I think, is one place that offers such quality K-bbq with a twist since its dishes are inspired by K-Town communities in the US.

Located at the ATC Corporate Center of ATC, Soban K-Town Grill's South branch is quite spacious. However, I suggest you visit them during non-peak hours or make reservations beforehand because their place gets packed! Every table was occupied during our visit and even the seats outside were filled.

Relax and Rejuvenate at Antara Wellness Spa

If there's anything I could think of as my guilty pleasure, it would definitely be getting a massage. But when I come to think of it, I feel like it is more of a necessity than a luxury. Just imagine coming from a busy week at school or work feeling tired and stressed. I don't think there is no other to way to relieve such stress than a good massage. 

Perfect vibes for a massage!

Recently, I have come across a new spa bordering Makati and Manila called Antara Wellness Spa. And I think the name of the spa suits is location because 'Antara' literally means "In Between" in Hindi. The concept of this new place is to be a haven from one's daily life and I think it definitely is one.

It's all in the details here at Antara

All You Can Eat Surf and Turf at RBCTY Maginhawa

Maginhawa is definitely the place to be when looking for quality yet affordable food. This place has been the go-to place of QC people for an authentic dining experience. There are just numerous hole in the wall restaurants within the area that offer quality food. And when looking for ribs and chicken, RibCity is your best choice in Maginhawa!

From school, I hurriedly went to Maginhawa for a Team Aldous food event. I was actually having a tough time then and this treat definitely lightened it up for me. Food is definitely one way to relieve stress and good food could do that real fast. I think that's what RibCity's awesome food offerings did to me.

Have a Taste of Japanese Beef Cubes at Black Wagyu

Wagyu Beef Cubes seem to me like some dish you could avail of in a posh restaurant. I know of several places that offers them at an unlimited promo but still pricey nonetheless. If you want to have a taste and give Japanese beef cubes a go for less, Black Wagyu could just do that. 

Black Wagyu is a food stall currently located at Ayala Malls The 30th. But if you've seen them elsewhere in the Metro, it's because they also do school and all sorts of events. So if you want to have your own Black Wagyu stall in your event, you may avail of their affordable party packages.

Feast on Authentic Taiwanese Cuisine at Xiao Nan Men

When it comes to authentic Chinese and Taiwanese cuisine, Binondo is definitely the first place that comes to my mind and I am pretty sure that the same goes with you. But for someone coming from Quezon City, it's quite a hassle to have to go to Manila just to satisfy one's craving. Lucky for us, North people, there are now tons of legit Chinese and Taiwanese restaurants in Quezon City, particularly in Banawe area, and one of which is Xiao Nan Men.

If you haven't heard of Xiao Nan Men before, it is actually a family-owned restaurant located at Z Square Mall along Banawe, QC. It's dishes comprises of various (and numerous) Chinese and Taiwanese specialties that will surely satisfy your Chinese cuisine cravings. A few months back, I was able to try out their best sellers and I was definitely impressed!

Xiao Long Bao - P199 for 9 pieces

First on our Taiwanese cuisine journey was their Xiao Long Bao. I am huge fan of dumplings and this one definitely did not disappoint! The wrapper was easy to pierce but not exactly too thin. The soup was refreshing and the whole thing goes well with their sauce.

When in Guam - Ypao Beach and Park

During my recent visit to Guam, I was so decided on visiting the beach. I felt like I was sun-deprived after spending too much time in school. We planned to go there during our second day but everyone else backed out. I still insisted on going there because I don't want to waste my time at the mall. And it was a great decision that I insisted.

Why I Love BeautyMNL.com!

There's nothing more convenient than purchasing everything you need online. For someone who rarely has free time, going to the malls to get supplies and necessities can be such a hassle. Moreover, there are tons of products that aren't readily available in malls, particularly skincare and beauty products. So it's quite a relief that I get to discover BeautyMNL.com.


If you haven't heard of BeautyMNL, it is an online beauty store that offers the widest range of brands and products. I know that it's the first time I'll be blogging about BeautyMNL but it wasn't actually my first time to purchase from them. I have probably shopped at least six times during the past six months, half of which was to buy skincare products for myself and the rest to buy gifts for girl friends.

Sariwon: Enjoy Quality Korean Barbecue in Manila

I feel like everything Korean has literally taken over my life now. Aside from living in a part of QC where there are more Korean establishments than convenience stores, I also find myself getting hooked with K-dramas (Hello, Nam JooHyuk!!) and Korean variety shows (i.e. 2 Days, 1 Night). I haven't been to Korea aside from the airport lol, but I think we got the best of Korea right here in Manila! One gastronomic contribution this culture has shared to us is their Korean Barbecue. I've honestly tried numerous K-BBQ places here in Manila - from small legit ones, to commercialized ones. But there's this one Korean resto in BGC that is definitely incomparable as regards quality and service and that is, Sariwon.

The name "Sariwon" was derived from small town in North Korea where Mrs. Bum Im Koo mastered a recipe for Korean Beef Bulgogi. Seventy years after Mrs. Bum Im Koo opened her first restaurant, Sariwon is now hailed as one of the best restaurants in South Korea. Recently, it opened its doors here in Manila, particularly in Bonifacio High Street in Taguig and Promenade in Greenhills.

Shopee expands Free Shipping and COD nationwide this Year of the Fire Rooster

Mobile shopping gets better this year as Shopee, one of the leading mobile commerce platform in Southeast Asia, announces that it will be the first mobile shopping platform in the Philippine to offer both buyers and sellers Free Shipping and Cash on Delivery Nationwide. This awesome news was made during the Chinese New Year to ride with the luck that comes with the Year of the Yin Fire Rooster.

During Shopee's Chinese New Year celebration, Shopee's Head of Commercial Business Macy Castillo shared that Shopee has reached over 3 million downloads in the country and has consistently been one of the leading mobile shopping apps in the Philippines. "Because of the program's initial success, we decided to expand our Free shipping and COD service, enabling a larger number of our sellers to attract more customers from over 900 cities and municipalities in the country, especially outside Metro Manila," says Castillo.

One advantageous feature of the Free Shipping and COD program is that more sellers on the platform will be able to ship out their products conveniently from their homes and offices without having to make a trip to a courier service outlet by simply requesting a pickup via the app with just a few clicks.

I've only downloaded the app on my iPad just recently and I was definitely hooked! I find myself browsing the app for a while. And I was amazed at how affordable most products are. You get to canvass too for the best price because there are now numerous sellers that are partnered with Shopee. Most of all shopping is safe because Shopee gets to facilitate the sale so that the buyer will be sure to receive the item and the seller to receive the payment.

Shopee is made available for download on the App Store and Google Play for free across the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Taiwan. To date, there are over 25 million downloads across these countries. For more information, please visit www.shoppee.ph

Fast, relaxing, yet effective treatments to make you svelte and stunning on Valentine’s Day

Not many ladies – or even gentlemen – care to admit it, but Valentine’s Day can be a cause of undue stress. The build-up to the romantic day of all time is known to bring some agonizing questions about how to land a date with your special someone, or maybe how to plan a rekindling of passion for those already in a relationship. Aggravating the already stressful prepping is, of course, how to look fabulous to make this an ultra-memorable night for the lovebirds.

And as February shows up on our electronic calendars, everyone suddenly seems to be in a rush to go on a crash diet or burn those calories at the gym. Rotundness is unacceptable and must be trimmed as soon as possible, and at least a couple of inches should be carved off the waistline. It’s hard to doll up for that date night when you are still trying to get fit to match the size of that stunning dress you have meticulously chosen; those extra pounds just might ruin the elegant cut, and that special night would be a disgrace.

Fortunately, cutting-edge solutions in the fields of cosmetology, aesthetics, and health are now available to help ladies avert their concerns about excess weight and love handles before the much-awaited Valentine’s evening.  Spending many days in the gym or exerting effort on physical activities may not even  be enough to slim down your figure in time but you need not worry anymore because the non-invasive treatments that are available would give you visible results in just one session which takes only 30 to 45 minutes, and is performed by a qualified clinical specialist in a private room where you can take that power nap while undergoing the procedure. 

Unlike traditional surgery, no skin is cut, and no recovery days required away from home or office. After the treatment, the patient can rush back to her next meeting or share a cup of coffee with her friends. It would be business as usual – except that more calories  and fat substances would have been removed instantly. Some of the annoying bulges would have even been tucked and trimmed. Look more closely, and the skin covering the arms, legs, and stomach where the treatment has been focused would seem firm and well-toned. 

“Results can be seen after just one session in one of our treatments,” says Dr. Lalaine Salazar, the Medical Director of the SvelT’i Health & Beauty Centre in Quezon City. “It may not be a dramatic removal of three inches off the waistline, but a half-inch loss has been known to happen. That’s a lot more than the patient would have accomplished had she run around the block, or lifted weights for a week. We take regular measurements on weight and waist size, among other statistics, and monitor the patient's improvement in each and every session.”

“We note the changes and study how we can support our patient to achieve her goals,” continues Dr. Salazar.  “The programs we design are customized, and correspond to each lady’s physiology, skin condition, and medical history. While all of these women want to slim down in the soonest possible time, each approach is different, and each treatment is calibrated specifically to bring out the best result in each one.”

Two treatments in SvelT’i are instrumental in helping the patient attain her preferred body size and weight, while shaping the less flattering parts into a new and attractive leanness:  the I-Curve by I-LIPO, and Thermogenic. These machines break down the undesired fats painlessly from within as they emit rays and pulses into the affected areas. They work with the body’s innate health-inducing physiological processes to eliminate the toxins and impurities that contribute to the weight loss and skin toning.

During the I-Curve by I-LIPO procedure, pads are placed on the regions which need to be slimmed or toned down. Dual waves of low-level laser rays focus on the built-up fat and the triglyceride that it contains. The body’s fat-burning process will be stimulated, causing it to tear down all those accumulated elements that have led to excess weight. Once the fat has been broken down into acids and glycerol, a vacuum massage will siphon these liquefied impurities out of the body. As a final touch, RF reproduces collagen which rejuvenates and makes the skin firmer.

Thermogenic also works with the body’s mechanisms and has the patient literally sweat the fat out while lying comfortably inside it. This time, Far Infrared Rays that go through her skin jumpstarts her metabolism. The body is also detoxified as fat cells, cellulite, waste, and other toxic substances are purged, with an equivalent of burning 600 – 800 calories per treatment. Added health advantages are improvement in blood circulation, and fresh bursts of energy replacing the common lethargy brought about by too many sedentary hours in front of the computer.

“Our solutions use the latest advances in science, research, and technology to tap into the body’s intrinsic design to restore health and eliminate possible triggers for illness,” says Dr. Salazar. “That’s why we get optimal results. It might take a few sessions to shrink down to your ideal dress size, but the result from the first session can definitely encourage you. Some of our patients changed their wardrobe to fit their new lean, mean – and attractive frame after only a couple of sessions.”

That certainly is good news to the stressed, and always-on-the-go ladies who fear that they may not have the time to make themselves look stunning and svelte for the Day of the Hearts. Through these latest beauty treatments, they can be fit and fab just in time for Valentine’s.

To know more about SvelT’i’s treatments, please call (02)332-7546 / 09188-SVELTI (783584) for free consultation or visit our clinic at 5F South Insula Condominium #61 Timog Avenue, Quezon City from Mondays to Fridays from 9am-6pm and Saturdays from 8am-1pm.

When in Guam - Oceanview Hotel and Residences

We rarely go overseas to travel. When we do, we'd usually go in batches (by twos or threes) just because it's too costly for everyone of us to travel. Last year, we were able to grab a seat sale at Cebu Pacific to Guam for only less than P5000 per head so my parents decided that it would be nice for everyone to come.

Since we were on a budget, we had to be wise when it comes to looking for a hotel. We stayed at Days Inn Hotel in Tamuning during our last visit but it was too far from any bus stop and we weren't planning on renting a car. I ended up canvassing at Agoda for a hotel that is cheap, near a bus stop, has a pool, and can accommodate five people. My search landed me to Oceanview Hotel and Residences.

Althea Korea Launches New App + Haul

2016 was indeed a big year for my fave K-beauty destination online - Althea Korea! Aside from expanding to three countries this year, that is, the Philippines, Thailand, and Malaysia, it was able to launch a mobile app just before the year ended to make shopping easier for us. The said app is now available in both iOS and Android. I suggest you try shopping using the app. It was meticulously improved during the past months to make sure that your shopping experience would be flawless.

Anyway, let me share to you my recent haul from Althea. I cannot recall how many boxes have I gotten from them! And this time, I was able to receive their limited edition Holiday box. There’s always something new that I wanted to try out from their site. I actually have tons of Korean skin care products that I haven't even tried yet. Here goes my haul:

Mama Lou's - Evia Lifestyle Center

I am honestly a noob when it comes to South. But when I was invited by Mama Lou's to visit its newest branch at Evia Lifestyle Center, I know I just had to go! If you haven't heard of Mama Lou's yet, it is an Italian restaurant owned by probably one of the coolest couples I know. And this place always gets packed! You should see the crowd at their UP Town Center branch as it gets crazy there during weekends. But this place is definitely worth lining for!
