Craving Cyma

It's one of those days - or weeks - when I just feel hungry all the time. Right now, all I can think of is Cyma. The last time I was there was a month or so ago, and these are what keep my mouth watering. Moussaka and rice-stuffed roasted bell pepper Greek Salad Nothing more to say. In case you find yourself craving Greek food, though, check out their menu here .

Of Audio Jacks, Food, and Christmas Bazaars

It's that time of the year again, when the city streets are lit up as if there were no tomorrow. Christmas songs are played in every restaurant, coffee shop, and mall - practically everywhere you go. I wouldn't have dared to go out on a Friday afternoon during this season, especially on a payday Friday, but my sister was in town so we spent some time together. First stop: lunch at Wee Nam Kee, my favorite stop for Hainanese Chicken (not that there are a lot of choices here). Roasted Hainanese Chicken Next up: look for an audio jack (long story), to no avail, although a  musician friend  might just have one.

An Afternoon at the Chelsea Market & Cafe Serendra

For the second week in a row, I've been waking up from hibernation. My Saturday was actually rather busy - two meetups in one day; and for me, that is a huge deal! First stop, Chelsea Market and Cafe, although I did make a quick stop at the bookstore to check if they had the 2015 A Song of Ice and Fire calendar and Patrick Rothfuss's Slow Regard of Silent Things . I did the find the first (yay!) but they didn't have the book.

My Dermcare Hair Rebonding Experience

Dermcare is probably not the first name that comes to mind when looking for a salon to get your hair rebonded. In fact, I had never considered it till I saw a standee at the new Alphaland Building in Makati.

Why I'm Collecting Stamps for a Coffee Bean Journal

I don't normally participate in the yearly 'collect stamps for each purchase and get a journal for next year' campaigns of coffee shops. One reason is that I feel I spend more than I would if I just bought a journal. Another is that I end up not using the journal anyway; and most of the time they don't look good.
