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...

oh, Bento Cafe by Kat Ishizuka

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...

Ajinomoto: Kathryn and Liza’s Kitchen Best Friend

The kitchen used to be a scary place for young people and cooking was a daunting task reserved for mothers and household helps. But technology played a role in guiding people around the kitchen. Nowadays, new cooks search online for cooking videos or check out “food hacks” to be able to produce any dish they want that they can, in turn, show off on social media. Young celebrities Kathryn Bernardo and Liza Soberano also enjoy cooking for their loved ones. They are the newest tandem to endorse Ajinomoto Umami Seasoning. Apart from what can be found in the Internet, Kathryn and...

Cheers to Life. Cheers to Everyday.

Cheers to Precious Memories Roughly three months before my 24th birthday, I gave birth to a baby boy. He unexpectedly became the center of my world and I found myself getting excited with every waking moment. After 4 years, we received another blessing and we called him ‘marshmallow face’. He has touched our hearts since then. My children are my everything. Yes, as cliche as it may sound, they are my EVERYTHING. And I will never forget the feeling of overwhelming joy when I first held them in my arms. I am a better person because of them, and for...

Pokémon To-Go: Pikachu Bento Box

When Pokémon Go was officially launched here in PH, me and my family joined the craze and soon after, my eldest started bugging me to make a Pokémon bento box. And so I gave in, but only 2 weeks after his request because I couldn’t quite imagine how I can make a decent Pokémon bento. But I did it, and I’m glad that I took up the challenge. I’ve only done a few charaben before and I used bread for the most of them. This time for my Pokémon bento I also used white bread as my main because I...
