Breakfast Fare at Floating Island Restaurant

Being a true blue Pinoy, I've always had a fondness for anything "insert possible viand here"-silog.  And I am definitely not alone in this sentiment.  Breakfast simply isn't complete without it.

I used to forgo breakfast a lot when I was still working, usually opting for a large steaming mug of joe at the office to perk me up before that start of another hectic day.  I know it's a bad habit but I was living alone that time and well, eating solo at the dining room table didn't sound too appealing to me.

So any chance I had to grab a bite with my mom during a regular workday is a definite treat.  And one such workday did find us in Makati Medical Center (MMC) early morning catching a bite to eat before heading to my medical appointment.

Good thing though, as we have discovered Floating Island Restaurant, located at the new annex wing of MMC.

With an all-day breakfast menu, Floating Island Restaurant is definitely a must-try for all -silog lovers out there.  Coupled with a viand, 2 eggs, a healthy serving of garlic rice and atchara, they try not to disappoint.

Try their delicious tocino (Php165).  I'm not a fan of very sweet, diabetes-inducing tocino, so their version is really just up my alley.  Not to sweet.  Just right.

Our family loves longganisa.  Skinless, garlicky, sweet, etc. -- we just have a fondness for it that, I believe, is deeply ingrained inside our genes.  So the vigan longganisa (Php180) on the menu -- definitely not going to miss it. 

Atchara servings were also above the average, although, it is lacking in that sour, vinegar-y punch.  Maybe that's why they were doling it out in such big portions?  =)

Cap it all off with a streaming cup of cafe cappuccino (Php85) and you have the perfect breakfast.

Although I must admit, prices might be a bit steep for the average -silog eater, considering there are other establishments offering the same fare at a lower price.  This, however, is a good alternative for once-in-a-while breakfast dining.

  1. I guess I half expected it to be pricey even before I read the last part because of its location :D

  2. Hehehe! It is a little. But worth the price. From what I hear, they also serve one of the best siopaos in town. Unfortunately, it was a little late when I heard about it so I wasn't able to order one. =)

  3. I want to try. Mura lang pala. :)

  4. @Tsina: Its worth the price naman. Very tasty. =)

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!  =)
