An everyday simple life of a blogger

Yours Truly by the Swimming pool, Airbnb, Sky High Condo Berkeley residences, Katipunan ave




On the last day of July, we had our First monthly airbnb and we got very excited to welcome them that we had preparations all week long. From Maintenance of plumbings to new additions like Telephone line, washing machine, clothes rack, newly improved services all in the price of P1500 a day, P27000 a month. After we had booked the client and oriented them in the whole condo amenities, we took pictures around the pool to update our ad page at Airbnb, the clouds were awesomely dramatic, this was before it rained since a new storm is coming to town it was extremely cold for the season.

Me while contacting client, the scenery is similar to that Korean series.

The end of July, Gourmet Fair was in every malls around Quezon City, we jumped from one mall to another to witness and have a taste of these heavenly blessings.


U.P Town Center

U.P town center is just 15 mins walk from our condo, where you can pass through the former shoppesville, gas stations, churches and villages in the area. The place was lively, kids loved it, it was their day to enjoy and families joined as well.

We joined this festivities by 12:00 pm, since we were informed an event at Heykessy, it was located at 2nd Floor of U.P.

Jack and Jill Fair

Jack and Jill Callbee Mascot, He entertained us with his cute dance on floor.


The event has the Virtual reality booth wherein people can try on a virtual reality experience, this kid seemed to be getting the hang of it, while dozens of people line up to have the experience as well. There is a someone to guide you so that you get to slip away from reality without getting hurt.

Also located in the area is a photobooth.
I found this one by at a floating store outside heykessy, the store's name is longliveplayph, where a valuable key was hidden. Share!!

Heykessy gives out this free cupcakes and people canbget a bag full of goodies when they purchase P300.00 and up products from them.

These cute knitted items are displayed at the middle section.

Some knitting supplies laid outside by the table for the free try of the art.





I found the Washi tapes on the inner part of the store .




The necklaces are priced varying P1000+ above. I truly loved how they have presented them in a neat manner of polished faux wood.

Some artworks hanging by the wall near the counter. 

The counter is located near the entrance, with cashier hiding at the back.


I got here a cat coloring paper to be colored by sharpie pens! Gave it to mom since loved these cool designs.


A customer filling in her paper with colors.
Not everyone had the chance to seat down and color peacefully since there were not enough table to accomodate many guests that arrived, the cramped up space made us leave earlier. I can say the organization was really poor, as people was scattered around having a hard time to find a place to lay the paper flat to color, but as for the presentation I loved their store!

  
On my way outside I found this cute store tickles that looked like the inspired version of Mr. Magorium's wonder emporium store.




 

ARTNEBULAPH

 

On our way out we saw a shop also helding a small art workshop the name's artnebulaph in this shop I get the chance to try their finest brushes, I tried to paint the calligraphy wordings. Im still a newbie at it though. I had so much fun and their shop has a welcoming aura as well as their artists have that master aura win them, respect to the highest level~

At the back of their shop, I saw these pet beds.


While juxtaposed it is the upgraded pillows with hoods, I was thinking about bringing it to bus at long travel time.



Outside the mall is the free standing shop Lollipufs, they dainty cotton candies at a reasonable price.

After UP town we had to go to Trinoma for another client business,





Nissan Academy Gaming showcase






 

 


I saw some cool games up by the showroom.
The nissan academy gaming seat is cool and neat. It lets the mall goers try on the racing game thats with stats competition. I saw this when we ran an errand for a business, and the game is fully occupied by players!
Along with the gaming showroom is exhibit of Festival Paradiso where local and international food and pastries are displayed on their respective tables, the place was really busy.


The month of July was blessedly abundant of food trippings, I am outmost thankful. Although some of the foods may not be a healthier choice, but who doesn't love food?

Shake Fries from Victory mall Food Court 2nd floor, Monumento. P35.00 per cup
Twister fries. You can choose from variety of flavors such as Sour cream, Classic, etc. and as the name implies shake the container to distribute the flavoring powder. The place is not too crowded at that time so we get to have a seat by the food court.

Shawarma House, Fishermall 4th floor near cinemas. P75.00
Sharmarma with Nachos, Plain Shawarma.Long ago i didnt like Shawarma due to its smell, but when a certain somebody had made a twist shawarma and offered it in a cafe, I had a really different perspective about it, before I knew it I tried out different Shawarma's around my area. This one comes with Nachos in it, while my best pick in Shawarma is Kaleb's , this one is also a good pick for a hungrie like me.

Spaghetti breakfast meal with toast bread. Tropical hut has served us since time immemorial, time has tested on how strong they were on the market despite the numbers of competition around. It is where all of most youths of 80s have been celebrated and treasured, because of that, many people feel nostalgic especially that they kept their original design intact for ages. This Spaghetti meal never did fail to amuse me, it is sweet and savory, with the buttery toast on the side, I close my eyes and remember all the great memories I had with family and food like this can turn back time. I partner this with their hot choco and it is delicisio!

Also their budget meal of 2 pieces Chicken and Fried rice is mmmmm!

An adobo connection unique dish of Crispy Kare-Kare offers you a super crisp pork with kare-kare sauce, string beans, pechay, pork strips, peanut sauce and shrimp sauce. It is a twist to your usual kare-kare served in one platter, although rice must be added separately. Their photo ad has sparked my curiousity of how would a crispy kare kare would taste and It was heavenly! I always go back to fishermall just to take a bite of this unique dish.


Jollibee Fries adobo buger, free macaroni soup and fries
Jollibee is Filipinos favorite leading food chain in the Philippines and I was happy to see that throughout the year they have made dozens of interesting additions to their menu. Their adobo burger has saved me a lot when I wanted something that's unique in their store.



KFC Chicken Bucket meals and Zinger burger
with Coleslaw and macaroni salad


Kfc is my personal choice of food chain. It has become an issue once in my relationship as to why my bf and I always have a date at KFC and celebrate birthdays there, my only explanation to that is preference. I prefer KFC because it has a lot of great memories and the taste of their chicken is heavenly. My bf and I would usually order bucket meals for the whole family at occasions and gloomy days or anime, movie days.
I was surprised with their bucket fries served at Katipunan, its literally in their bucket packaging!







Foss coffee, Vanilla Flavor
When Foss coffee arrived at Hypermarket Sangandaan, It was summer and I really needed a big gulp of refreshment, then I noticed the long line at Foss coffee, they served Vanilla which is perfect for me, it tastes like you're drinking baby's milk, makes me feel happy and younger.

As the staff prepares for customers order, many are entertained to see them cook and toss food to the packaging.








Along the area is the takoyaki stand, where piles of takoyaki are assembled and ready to be bought, pairing it up with drinks and its a food bazzar experience to the fullest!

The takoyaki stand has a snowcone stand to pair up and yes it is the legendary snow cones, unfortunately i was already chilling cold thats why i wasnt able to buy anymore.

The Shawarma stand made a big impression to everyone passing around them, its aroma is strongly delicious, its hard not to give in to it.

In Quezon City, lots of food chains, cafes and food businesses have developed making it easier for people in their busy lifestyle easier, but never forget to eat healthy. It is still the best if it comes from your very own produce, it is guaranteed safe and no preservatives. I am still in the look out for more food trippings around the area, perhaps I'll be updating about my simple joys in being a blogger. Stay tune for the next blog.
