EVENT: TOYCON 2013

Daughter and I got so excited when I saw RWM's fb post earlier today. TOYCON 2013 at the Newport Mall.

You see, daughter loves watching animes and reading mangas and is also a frustrated cosplayer. Nah, she haven't joined one yet except that she dressed up (or rather I dressed her up) as Sadako when she's still in nursery (trick-or-treat event in school), if that counts. Of course, most of her classmates were dressed up as princesses, fairies, pirates, winnie the pooh characters, etc. All cutey cuteys so she was not happy with her costume; but she did win a price for being the scariest. Hahaha

Then several years back (2008), we attended the debut party of a friend's daughter and theme was cosplay. Yey! Unfortunately though, guests weren't asked to come in costume and I have a small part on the program since the celebrant- Alexis, is my goddaughter.

The one wearing the yellow suit is the celebrant's brother. He is now a professional cosplayer. One of his  latest gig was with Derek Ramsay, as Kidlat, during the show's mall tour and premier night.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)


Craving For Max's Spicy Chicken

Max's Restaurant, the home of the famous "sarap to the bones" fried chicken introduces its newest mouthwatering Max's Spicy Chicken. Its definitely hot and delish as it is enhanced with a special chili pepper seasoning that will make you yearn for more.
