PH | YOUR LOCAL, Makati

Two and a half weeks in the Philippines.  A whirlwind of activities -- mainly meeting with missed family members and friends.  Add that to the country's extra special Christmas festivities (iba talaga ang Pasko sa 'Pinas!  I swear), and the family and I found ourselves tired (with matching aching legs and feet); but with hearts bursting with love due to those who took time off to meet us.  :)

Oh!  And our holiday coincided with the Husband's and mine's wedding anniversary.  So off we went and had an "us" only date (and believe me, it was a feat in itself.)  Our destination?  YOUR LOCAL in Makati.

YOUR LOCAL, Makati, Philippines



Nondescript and tucked in a small street in Legaspi Village, YOUR LOCAL is a hip bistro serving their own interpretation of select Southeast Asian dishes.

Lamb Rendang (Php530)
Our choices?  Lamb Rendang (Php530) for the Husband and Torched Salmon Donburi (Php540) for me.

Up close

Rendang is a type of spicy meat dish originally from Indonesia.  Nowadays you can also find variations of it in Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei.

YOUR LOCAL's version is spicy enough, meat tender, and partnered with a good helping of black rice and egg.

Torched Salmon Donburi (Php540)

Torched Salmon Donburi -- medium cooked salmon (torched after) partnered with shitake black rice, among other umami goodies.  The roasted salmon skin adds a nice crunchy texture in each bite.

Each serving is good for 2, but if you're feeling indulgent, enjoy one whole dish for your very own.

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!  =)
