PH | Conti's Bakeshop & Restaurant

It seems like Conti's Bakeshop & Restaurant has been included in almost every foodie's to-try list -- both for their succulent savoury meals and sinfully delightful desserts.  One of the problems I've had with them, though, is the lack of a branch near our home or any other place in the Southern Metro that we frequently visit.

So when we found ourselves in Robinsons Magnolia one weekday morning, the family decided that a visit was finally in order, if only to partake of some of their well-raved about some sweets.

Conti's Bakeshop & Restaurant

From its humble beginnings as a small bake/coffee shop in Paranaque, Conti's has grown in size and number, with the menu also boasting of an extensive savoury and sweet selection.
Too bad, we just had breakfast and we were only in for coffee and cakes; but those were great darn cuppa joes and sweets, man!

Regular Brewed Coffee

In this age of super expensive designer coffee, I believed that coffee nowadays, isn't really coffee anymore.  It's a concoction with caffeine but with too many darn stuff added into it.  It's confusing and complicated.

Which is why it's always refreshing to just simply enjoy a regular cup of brewed coffee (Php60.00).  No more added creams, syrups, special milk or whatnot.  It's just brewed coffee.  Have it black (for those true aficionados) or with cream (fresh milk) and brown sugar.  Simplicity at its best.  Conti's also offers a complimentary refill.

Bananalicious Pie

Bananalicious Pie (Php110.00 a slice), their delicious take on a banana cream pie.  Rich and creamy but not cloyingly so. 

Choco Almond Sansrival

Choco Almond Sansrival (Php105.00 a slice).  Rich buttercream sandwiched in between chewy layers of meringue, topped with lots of sliced almond.  The chocolate adds that extra bitter sweetness.

Kudos to the excellent service as well.  We were never in want of anything.  Definitely coming back for more.  

    I agree with this! There's too much additives in coffee that it stop being coffee. Coffee just became one of the ingredients. Real coffee drinkers drinks real coffee.

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!  =)
