Lovin' Fely J's Kitchen

Being married to an OFW, you'll definitely have to expect eating out at a LOT of restaurants offering Filipino cuisine.  It's a good thing though, that eateries offering top quality local fare are quite abundant in the Metro.

One of our absolute favorites is Fely J's Kitchen, located at Greenbelt 5.

Part of the LJC Restaurant Group, Fely J's Kitchen is dedicted to the company founder's mother who loves to cook really great Filipino fare.

When at Fely J's, be sure to start your gastronimical adventure off with a basket of their complimentary Cropek or Shrimp crackers.  Yum!

We also love their Bangus belly sinigang (Php395) where you're given a choice between using bayabas or sampaloc as the souring agent.  We opted for bayabas, which made for such a tasty sweet and sour broth.  And who doesn't love bangus belly?  Aside from salmon, milkfish is definitely one of my top favorite fishes to eat.

And of course, the ever-present Sisig (Php185), which we never ever fail to order in all of the Filipino restuarants we choose to dine in.  Men talaga!  Hay!  Fely J's actually offers this as an appetizer so expect a relatively small serving.  It is tasty though and well worth the price.

We also quenched our thirst with 2 of their great drinks.  The 4 seasons juice (Php130 - on the right), Fely J's own house concoction.  It was so fresh and cool, just perfect to beat the Metro heat. 

The one on the left is their Sago't gulaman (Php95).  The juice was really great with just enough sweetness from the sugar syrup, unfortunately our sago pearls weren't really that well-cooked.

We usually order their Dili-cious rice (Php205), composed of deep fried dilis and taosi beans on top of steaming jasmine rice.  Definitely one of their house specialities, with a single order good enough for 3 to 4 people.  However, for this particular visit, we were more inclined to order some jasmine rice (Php55) instead.

So the next time you find yourself in Greenbelt 5, try Fely J's Kitchen for a great Filipino dining experience!  =)

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!  =)
