Bubble Tea Dreams and Memories

During one particular trip to Singapore to visit my ex-BF (now hubby) a few years back, I came across a small stall selling, of all things, grilled chicken curry.  Yup.  You read it right.  It's grilled and it's curried.  Well, I love anything fowl -- grilled most especially -- and anything curried, so this unique combination to me was like a delicious, gastronomical meeting of sorts, simply calling out to my palate.

And try it out I did!  Never have I tasted such a great combination that my succeeding visits found me ordering the same thing again and again.

Well, this isn't Singapore, baby!  So alas, I couldn't have it here and would content myself with the occasional taste twice or thrice in a year.  =(

Well, that was before Bubble Tea Restaurant (Tokyo Milk Tea Place) offered me a similarly delicious alternative.


Named after those popular pearl milk tea beverages that seem to be popping out of nowhere these days, this restaurant is slowly but surely gaining a following because of their pearl milk tea drinks.

But personally, it's not just the drinks that make me visit this store each and everytime I find myself in Megamall.

For one thing, I love their Grilled Chicken Curry (Php225).  Their version has more curry sauce as compared to the one I patronize in Singapore, but just as tasty.   It's sweet and a little spicy, combined with tender chicken strips infused with the just the right amount of marinade.  Yum!

Oh!  And they top it with a sunny side egg.  Double yummy!  =D

Just look at that luscious egg...

It also comes with a small side salad with thousand island dressing.  I usually skip this though, as I find the dressing a little overpowering.

Bubble Tea Restaurant is popularly known for their milk tea drinks.  I, however, am more partial to their milkshakes, particularly their strawberry-flavored one, selling for Php135, medium size.

What I love about their shakes is the fact that they include tapioca or sago pearls into their concoction.  It's not too sweet and you get an exctra dose of vanilla soft serve ice cream on top.  I could just have this everyday!  =D

Bubble Tea Restaurant also tries to provide a more personal dining experience.  Servers are very welcome and accommodating, and very knowledgable.  Heck!  They also include a personalized thank you note on your receipt.  Now that's service. 

My one major gripe with them is that they haven't opened a branch in the south yet.  Calling Bubble Tea Restaurant!  Open one here please!  Maybe in MOA?  =D

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.

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!  =)
