Food Review: Siopao Boy by Masuki

Everybody has one.  You know what I mean.  That well-loved food place that evokes childhood memories of family togetherness and bonding.  That special resto you used to frequent as a kid on family gatherings, celebrations or just on an ordinary Friday night.  Regardless of whether its that corner turo-turo or that snazzy red and yellow place well-associated with a giant bee, one bite of their food and it never fails to evoke memories you thought were long forgotten.

I am no exception.  My time machine of choice?  A small noodle shop in the heart of Binondo by the name of Masuki.

I am a fourth-generation Masuki eater.  Ever since my paternal great-grandparents discovered this quaint hole-in-the-wall serving hot mami, tasty siomai and siopao, our clan has never been the same. 

Good thing though, Masuki has also found a home quite close to my current abode.  Enter Siopao Boy by Masuki, all our old faves in one convenient place in Quezon City.  Did I mention they also deliver?

With only a required minimum purchase of P300 for delivery, comfort food comes fast at your doorstep.  Here are just a few of my favorites:

Regular asado siopao (Php45.00)

Chicken-asado mami (Php85.00)

Siomai (a serving of 2 pieces costs Php46.00)

And how exactly do you enjoy this scrumptious feast?  Top it all off with lots and lots of Masuki's special sauce, of course!

Masuki, oh, Masuki...the stuff food dreams are made of....  Nostalgia express, here I come!

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
