KakaoTalk: TOP in PH

I was just thinking about TOP last week. How I’d like to see him in person and to include that task in my bucket list. Next thing you know, Ria posted a status about an event where you could meet him! I was literally jumping up and down my hotel room.

KakaoTalk's Lucky Fans Night with TOP and Sarah
This is it! Pansit!

So the mechanics of joining the contest is already listed in the picture above. And as of today, it is officially closed. I did send entries daily! HAHAHA. I really hope I’ll get picked! I wanna see TOP in person. Please please, pretty please??? When I downloaded KakaoTalk and followed TOP, they gave me this free picture of TOP:



TOP in PH
I’m tempted to photoshop that and change it to Kezia! HAHAHA

For those that doesn’t know him, TOP is a member of Korean Group BigBang. They consists of 5 members: G-Dragon, TOP, Tae Yang, Seung Ri, and Dae Sung. I first met BigBang in their MV Lies, way back 2007. First look at TOP, and yeah, my heart already surrendered. He was just too cute and full of attitude!

And then I came across this video:

So badass! And have you heard his voice? It’s so deep, so sexy. A simple “hello” and I feel like I was being seduced already. Hahaha.



TOP in PH
Yeah baby~

They are a funny bunch too! During the popularity of Coffee Prince (Korean Drama), BigBang produced a parody. TOP was casted as the Manager and G-Dragon was the “boy pretending to be a girl pretending to be a boy”.

Since then, the fandom continued. I maybe out of touch of K-Pop for sometime but BigBang will always be in my heart. See you soon, TOP! <3 <3 <3

Tacloban City: Staring is Rude

Filipinos still aren’t used to tall girls, are they? I was walking around Tacloban City today and I still got stares from almost everyone that I passed by. Don’t get me wrong, I like my height. I just don’t like being stared at. Anyway, in my quest to find that quiet spot where people wouldn’t be rude, I stumbled upon Sunzibar.

Sunzibar is a Mexican-inspired restaurant located in the downtown area of Tacloban City. I didn’t even know this place existed, until I got lost. Originally, the plan was to spend my afternoon in Cafe Lucia. But alas, it was closed. So I looked for another hiding place and google said Calle Z. Google also said that Calle Z is open from 6 PM – 4 AM. F*ck it! It was just 12 noon then and I needed a place to eat and read. I am really thankful to this blog post for recommending Sunzibar. It wasn’t easy to find, though. They don’t have an overhead signage, just this cute double-face signaged that is very insconpicous. So if you’re walking on the other side of the street, you might miss it just like what happened to me. I had to stop at a milk tea place and ask the locals about the location of Sunzibar.

When I got there, the place was really jam-packed. It makes you look forward to what they can offer. Surely, people wouldn’t frequent this place if they don’t have something good to offer, right? I asked for their best seller and they recommended the Rum Ribs. Okay, I can eat Ribs. On their menu, it said “Ribs so tender, the meat falls off the bone… It comes with 2  glasses of iced tea, salad,  and rice so more people can share”. I appreciate the thought miss, but do I look like “more people” to you? I can’t eat all that. Well maybe I could, but not now when I just drank an extra large milk tea, okay? Thank you. Their next recommendation was the Pan-Grilled Chops. Ooooooh pork! Me likey!!!



Sunzibar’s Pan Grilled Chops

It was humongous! That was 2 slabs of porkchop served with rice and salad. The pork chops were specially marinated and pan-grilled with barbecue sauce. It was a very good meal! And cheap too! This meal costs only Php 147.00. Good meal, good deal! I took time eating and savoring my food that all the tables started clearing up!

As I don’t want to go out in the open field with a lot of staring people, I ordered again (Hahaha excuses! :P).  Nachoooooos! It was overflowing with cheese when they served it. Tasted great too! The tortillas, as I’ve read in their menu were hand-rolled and made fresh daily. Yes, it was crunchy and tasty. I can eat it even without the cheesy toppings. Very affordable for also for only Php 118.00.

Nachos!

I am very happy with this restaurant. I wanna try the Rum Ribs next time, but first I’ll find a friend or maybe a boyfriend to share that meal with! Hahaha. I’ll definitely be eating there again before I leave this week. Thank you for being a good hiding place, Sunzibar!

Bigby’s You Only Live Once~

YOLO. These 4 letters got so popular a few months ago that you can see it in almost everyone’s status. It is their reasoning behind every crazy antics they did. You only live once. Yes, I agree. But that doesn’t excuse every crazy-stupid behavior that you later take a picture of and upload on facebook with the caption “YOLO”.

*Insert awesome heroic background music here*

Bigby’s YOLO Launching, however, is something that I would call awesome-crazy! Maybe because it’s food so I’m a bit biased, but whatever. It is awesome! They have 3 challenges under their YOLO Menu: (1) Big Time Manhattan Burger; (2) Rack-a-Bye Baby Monster; and (3) Titanic Treat.



You Only Live Once


The Big Time Manhattan Cheeseburger is 10-inch double deck all-beef burger is a creation that challenges mankind. It comes with your usual burger components: tomato, lettuce, cheese, and onion, garnished with pickles and fries! See how intimidating it is?


Big Time Manhattan Burger

Meanwhile, the Rack-a-Bye Monster Ribs is a monstrosity of smoky-barbecued pork ribs. It comes with buttered grilled sweet corn on the cob, cilantro green beans, and crispy fat fries. Calorie overload!!!

Mega Rack-a-Bye Baby Monster  

Last but not the least in their YOLO Menu is the Titanic Treat. More than a dozen scoops of differently flavored ice cream (I wasn’t able to count, busy gorging them down! Hahaha), mixed with brownie chunks, fruits, chocolate chips, chocolate and toffee sauce! Sinful! And yes, you read that right, I challenged this one! Together with Danea of My Teenage Kid and Me, we tried to conquer this within 5 minutes.

Titanic Treat
Kisisha and Danea~ Ready to attack!!!

We failed to conquer it though. But I’m definitely going back to challenge it again! You just wait Titanic Treat!!! The other team who challenged the Big Time Manhattan Cheeseburger for 2 minutes weren’t as unlucky as us. I think they came prepared for this one. Hmmmmm..

We want meat!!!
Fight! Fight! Fight!


Afterwards…


Bigby’s YOLO Challenge runs from August 1 until September 30, 2013. Head on to their page to see the full mechanics. So, what are you waiting for? Gather your team and prepare to become the Ultimate YOLO Titan. Remember, You Only Live Once! 😀

SunDATE at J Cuppacakes

I found a new cupcake place! 🙂 Hello J Cuppacake! I found this place in Eastwood when I went there last sunday for a feel good sunDATE with Cassandra.
 
Pretty store even from the outside 🙂

Isn’t it pretty? A few months ago, Cassandra was ecstatic about a cupcake place in Eastwood. However, as Eastwood is far from my cousin’s place, I wasn’t really thrilled to go. The first time I laid my eyes on the store, I already knew this is the cupcake place that she was talking about.
 
Welcome to J Cuppacakes

Isn’t it pretty? The array of cupcakes in the shelves are pretty enticing. The vibrant colors make you wanna try each cupcake and savor their flavor. Hmmm.. yum yum! The cakes on display were very pretty and colorful too!

 

Merely looking at the cupcakes made me really happy already! But I definitely didn’t leave the place without trying out some. I ordered their best seller, the Premium White Chocolate Basil and their new Cookie Butter Cupcake. If you like Basil, you’ll surely love the refreshing combination of basil and white chocolate.  On the otherhand, the Cookie Butter Cupcake is recommended for people with sweet tooth! I loved it! ❤❤❤
 

 

We’ll surely be back to try the other cupcakes! See you soon J Cuppacakes! 🙂
