There is only one way of saying it. Merry Christmas, dear friends!

I am not a very adventurous person when it comes to food. I usually prefer my old favorites to new ones. That is unless a much raved, tried and tested restaurant like Cyma gets recommended by friends I trust. And my friends are seldom wrong. ;)
My bad. I forgot to blog about this and I cannot understand why! I've even forgotten most of the names of the food we had that day when we celebrated my hubs' birthday in December last year. Food this good should have been "shared" right away! :) Anyway, it is better to be late than never.
Meet our main dishes... we had baked salmon (Psari Fournou).... Short Rib Beef Stifado...
Pork Souvlaki and Lamb Chops...
And for the sweet tongue, it is Skolatina, Cyma's Molten Chocolatecake! The different textures and flavors blend together to give one that gustatory treat! And that roasted chestnut sauce is just divine.
I wish I had photos of the Flaming mangoes we ordered for the birthday boy but I only had a video that showed the servers shouting "Opa!" as they served it. It wasn't just the presentation. The mangoes were delicious, too!
I think it might be tough to find another Greek restaurant in the Metro that's this good.

Whoever thought of this is heaven sent for me! A landline you can take with you wherever you go is just amazing. And it is PLDT powered. Plus...

"Dynamite" is simply siling pang sigang and cheese in a roll, deep fried. I made my own at home after I tried it at a suking street vendor the other day and really really liked it! His version had a little meat inside each roll but I wanted to make mine simpler but a lot cheesier, more similar to Kitchen Cow's version. And no, it wasn't good... it was smokin' hot good! Thanks, Kaoko, for sharing the recipe!

Told you... we love tripping back to dining places either to try new items on the menu, or just to sink our teeth into old time favorites!
And this is Tinomok. Similar to Laing but it has a lot of meat. More of meat wrapped in gabi leaves, actually. I sometimes order this To-Go when we get cravings. Glad to note that Gerry's Grill's food quality hasn't changed.

We try our best to come back for more good food at restaurants we enjoyed dining in to try the other items on their menu. Burgoo is one of them.
Manhattan's Best salad had red apples, pineapple bits, croutons and honeyed walnuts in a bed of crisp lettuce with light dressing... pretty good. generous servings...
N'awlin's Classic Platter turned out to be very similar to their Jambalaya... still good, though. But, honestly, I could hardly tell the difference.
Prices seem to be getting steeper and steeper. I think a third trip would not be anytime soon.

We were happy that Rai Rai Ken opened a branch at SM Bicutan! We were already running out of places to dine in at SM Bicutan and RRK is a welcome addition to the mall!
We were extra happy with the restau's opening promo deal ..... for every single order of their Gyoza (either 3 pcs or 6 pcs/order), you get their huge bowl of ramen of your choice at 50% off!
The seafood ramen we picked was big enough for sharing! We asked for two extra bowls and split the ramen. Hot and delicious, we finished everything in no time! The ramen was rich in flavors of the sea.... shrimps, squid, clams, different kinds and colors of seafood balls!
It was a very hearty and filling meal for two. At only less than php300, (already with a soda for each of us) it was really worth the visit.

Only then did I realize that bikes come in different sizes and shapes and brands and models!
My hubby is into bikes and biking these days. He has actually assembled his first one ever and is mighty proud about it! He brought me to one of the bike shops in Manila the other day where he bought something he had to add to his baby.
It even amazed me that bikers have these many accessories and even outfits to choose from that go well with their hobby!
But if you are a bike enthusiast at heart, then Iron Bike is one place you will be thrilled to visit.

Our gadgets serve us well. They entertain us with games, amaze us with brilliant pictures, serenade us with music, feed our minds with information and so much much more!
The least we can do is make sure they are well kept and well protected. For my digicams, Case Logic is the only option. I love the designs and the materials used.

The size almost had me fooled. Good thing I read a lot of reviews about this little camera and ended happy with what I read. It had all of the features I want in a camera that I can take with me every day.
Small.... simple buttons.... enough control over my shots.... and, yes, full HD videos!
This tiny little gadget is the perfect partner for my 550D. As they say, "wala sa pana yan, nasa indian!"

I made the switch. It used to be only Creamsilk conditioner for my chemically treated hair. But when a friend suggested that I try Pantene's Total Damage Care Intensive Treatment, I followed her advice and was happy with the result.
