Miao Cat Cafe Cozy Cafe

A Purrfect Afternoon at Miao Cat Cafe

I am constantly finding ways to surprise my husband so I reserved us a visit to a themed cafe here in QC, Miao Cat Cafe. Miao Cat Cafe is located at the 2nd floor of Cake2Go (beside Midcon Apartelle), opposite side of KFC, near crossing of Mindanao Ave. and Congressional Ave. There was no large Miao Cat Cafe signage but you can easily spot the Cake2Go sign. The stairway entrance is a bit cramped, but it was okay with me since there were only a few us trying to get in. Their “reservation only” rule is quite practical because of...
Halloween Bento

Halloween Bento Box: Mummy, Jack-o’-lantern, and Frankenstein

Last Halloween I thought of surprising my kids with a Halloween bento box for lunch. I didn’t have much inside our refrigerator back then so I had to come up with a simple Halloween-inspired bento without using a lot of ingredients. The idea just came to me when I saw a rectangular lunch kit that I bought from Saizen. Three Halloween characters (or heads) for the three portions.. why not? Ingredients: Cooked Rice Oyster Sauce UFC Color Crazee Ketchup in Outstanding Orange and GoGo Green Nori sheets Cheese Slices Tools: Lunch box Silicone Baking Cups Bento (carving) knife Bento scissors...

SMNE Celebrates Chinese New Year with The Chan Lim Family of Artists

To officially mark the start of the Chinese New Year, SM City North EDSA honored The Chan Lim Family of Artists through a commemorative event — an afternoon of exquisite Chinese culture celebration last Sunday, January 15.

oh, Bento! Cafe by Kat Ishizuka in Nuvali

A day before 2016 ended, my family visited Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. I spotted this really cute cafe in Solenad mall and I couldn’t help but get excited when I saw the word BENTO. 🙂 oh, Bento! Cafe By Kat Ishizuka just recently celebrated its 1 year anniversary. Kat Ishizuka, the owner, launched oh, Bento! out of her love for food and creativity. We actually have the same reason why we started making bento boxes — our kids were picky-eaters so we need to find some ways to get them to eat a variety of food. When I entered the...

Burgers and Crepes at Café Breton

I’ve only had a few guy friends in my entire life and one of them is a classmate/batchmate back in high school. We haven’t seen each other for a long time and we rarely kept in touch during those years, pero buti na lang we got to exchange comments in one of my FB posts and at last, I was able to meet his family — his wifey and son, last December. 🙂 It was late in the afternoon when the kids finished playing at Gymboree so we’ve decided to have an early dinner at Café Breton, Trinoma.  It was my...
