Intramuros (part 2): Lunch Buffet at Barbara's Heritage Restaurant.


...continued from (part 1): Bambike Eco Tours

After biking and walking for almost three hours, we wanted only two things... To change out of our clothes and TO EAT.  All of us wanted something fast but still delectable so we decided to do the lunch buffet at Barbara's Restaurant.

Intramuros (part 1): Bambike Ecotours.


I've been wanting to do a tour around Intramuros since I've heard of Carlos Celdran's walking tour but T and I haven't been able to do so.  Luckily, T's sister Michelle asked us if we wanted to join her and her friends so T and I were finally able to do Bambike's Intramuros Ecotours!

BLK 513's Flagship Store in S Maison Conrad.


I love anything dairy, including yogurt.  So when I saw this place called BLK 513 in S. Maison last November that serves activated charcoal frozen yogurt, I told T I had to try it.

Tajimaya Japanese Charcoal Grill in Alabang Town Center.


It's been a while since there's been a new restaurant in Alabang so it's a challenge for me and T to find somewhere new to eat when we're not in the mood to drive far away.  Fortunately, Tajimaya Japanese Charcoal Grill opened a branch in Alabang Town Center last month.

Giveaway: CCF's Family and Finance Conference 2017.


UPDATE: Giving away 3 pairs of tickets (6 tickets) to CCF's Family and Finance Conference! Visit and like my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/joeiandme and send me a private message there :)


I've always budgeted my money even as a kid and I didn't need to do it.  It also doesn't seem that way (my mom will object when she reads this haha!) because I like shopping but I really do budget.  I set aside money for my savings, my shopping, my travels, and whatever it is I want or need.

I'm used to handling my personal finances but now that I'm entering into another stage in my life (aka getting married), I want to learn how to budget for my future family. I even asked my former colleague Jill Sabitsana, who is a registered financial planner, for books I can read or seminars I can attend.

And then I got an invite to CCF's Family and Finance Conference which is a whole day workshop dedicated to teach and help families manage finances better. How timely!

ArmyNavy Burger + Burrito's B.U.D.D.Y. Combo.


My mom absolutely loves ArmyNavy's burrito which is available in 7 variants.  On the other hand, I like ArmyNavy's quarter pounder burger because of its 100% natural beef patties, fresh lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and onions sandwiched in toasted sesame seed Kaiser bun.  So we're both happy to learn of ArmyNavy's promo for its 8th birthday this year.. Choose between a burger B.U.D.D.Y. combo or a burrito B.U.D.D.Y. combo for only PhP341!

Boulangerie 22's Pokemon Go Cakes and Macarons.


Who here got addicted to Pokemon Go?  I'm sure most of you did one time or another.  I did.  Honestly, when I started playing, I wasn't really familiar with the characters unlike my sister S who used to play the game in her Nintendo 3DS.  I started to get addicted to it when the app became available for our mobile phones. I remember panicking whenever I see a PokeStop nearby.

Boulangerie 22, a bakery and dessert cafe serving specialty cakes, has also joined the craze and came up with their Pokemon Cake Collection!

Ballet Manila's Don Quixote at the Aliw Theater.


Happening on February 24 and 25, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. and on February 26, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. at Aliw Theater is Ballet Manila's closing act for the 21st performance season, Don Quixote.

Don Quixote is known in the ballet world as one of the most technically challenging pieces ever created, with some of the choreography raising the already high international standards when it first premiered in 1869 at the Tsar's Imperial Ballet of St. Petersburg. It is especially known for its compulsory quick and strong movements, high vertical takeoffs, one arm lifts, quick fouettes, quadruple pirouettes, and Kitri’s signature move, the Plisetskaya head-kick.

Valentines 2017: 10 Date Ideas In and Out of The Metro.

1. Take painting lessons.

This is what T and I did for Valentines last year.  For more details, you can read my blog post about our 2016 Valentines date in Sip n Gogh.

Tomatito Manila: Sexy Tapas Bar.


I usually start my year with a 'Looking Back' entry but a lot has been going on in my life lately (hence, the lack of posts) and I don't have time right now to dig through all the photos from last year and choose my favorite moments so I decided to save that for later. Instead, I'll first write about a recent restaurant T and I have visited.

Last Friday, we found ourselves in BGC looking for a place to eat.  I'm so out of touch with what's new in the restaurant scene but I remember seeing this colorful place while we were driving around the area last month.. Tomatito.
