Instagram Food Diary

I've had an Instagram account for a while now, and it's more updated than this blog. It's just more convenient to snap a photo of something, add a caption, and post it right away compared to making a blog post about it. It has been an easier way for me to document stuff as well! I enjoy taking pictures of food even before Instagram happened, it's my one way of appreciating it aside from eating it (of course)! :)) Also lately, it's been my habit to check food photos on my phone every now and then because I remember my days by the food that I eat! :)) Anyway, here are a few pictures of food I was able to try the past few months. 

The Cafe Mediterranean 
 Food was okay, but I remember saying I liked Cyma more.

House of Lasagna
The lasagna comes in generous portions and not pricey at all! The Chicken is a must-try, so good! 

Pepper Lunch
One of our go-to places when we're not up to trying something new. Beef Pepper Rice with Egg is my all-time favorite!

Ramen Cool
I was not expecting too much when I ate here, but still got disappointed. :( Good thing the place was nice.

Mad Mark's Creamery and Good Eats
Second time at Mad Mark's and I'm glad they opened a new branch! This Roasted Pecan ice cream is one of the best, not too sweet and it has, well, pecans! :))

Bag of Beans
Food was so-so and a bit overpriced, except for their cheesecake! The best I've ever tasted, I swear! I'd go back for the cheesecake and the place, wonderful ambiance. :) 

Cupcakes by Sonja's
Shared this Peanut Butter Nutella with Prince since we're not big fans of sweets, him especially!

Yabu: House of Katsu
Who would say no to that big chunk of juicy delicious meat? The unlimited fruit is a plus as well! :D

Hanamaruken Ramen
Yes, another ramen place here in Manila! A tad too salty for my taste, not sure if it was just our batch. But I love that they serve 8 pieces of Gyoza for only 150php!!!! :))

A Taste of Slice
I am a sucker for pretty food! But this Choco Yema cupcake is not only pretty, it's yummy too! A bit too sweet for my taste though, I was only able to finish half of it. 

Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe
Food was okay. Not great, but okay.

Wai Ying
Our favorite Chinese fast-food when we were in college! They have the best fried wanton and hakaw! :D

Bali 2013

Another travel post! Last year was a mix of highs and lows, but why talk about the bad things, right? Let's just focus on the great things that happened, and this Bali trip is definitely one of them. Had the opportunity to go to Bali in between our Singapore trip, thanks to Prince's wonderful family! :D

Aside from the temple tour, we also tried white water rafting and surfing (albeit very briefly), then finally had a much needed Balinese massage. I am no adventurer. I am a homebody who finds pleasure in staying at home, watching TV, reading books, and surfing the net. This whole Bali experience though, is such a refreshing change and a huge step out of my comfort zone. Definitely looking forward to more adventures in the future! :D
