Halla Korean Restaurant

Halla restaurant is located within the korean Town in Friendship, Balibago Angeles City. Halla offers Korean Cusine you'll surely love.

Korean food is not Korean when rice, noodles, tofu, vegetables and meat are missing. And Of course, the table will always be full of healthy appetizers.

Kimchi is a famous korean appetizer that I don't eat :p

My favorite is the "Bibimbap" or mixed rice. It is a bowl of rice topped with vegetables, spicy sauce, meat and fried or raw eggs.
Price: P300

Samyupsal is a meat that looks like bacon which is eaten with these vegies, unfortunately I forgot to take pictures because the waitress took it and fried them.
Price: P600

this is Doenjang (Tofu SoupSoup) Price: 200

When we ate at Halla, it was our first time to visit the restaurant. Our bil costs: P1630. We usually eat Korean food at Maharajah. And we think that Maharajah offers better korean food.

Fortune Hong Kong Seafood Restaurant

My Father's NOT so favorite Restaurant is Fortune. In fact we eat here 2-3 times a month. When we have visitors we bring them here and when there's an occasion we celebrate it here or He buys food here and bring it to family gatherings.XD Since we're a regular customer we get discounts =)

Fortune is located along MacArthurHi-way (Diamond Subdivision) Abgeles City. It is basically a Chinese Restaurant what I don't understand is that they placed Hong Kong in their logo where in fact not a single food tastes like its from Hong Kong. Because It tastes good unlike in Hong Kong. Fortune is definitely one of the best restaurants in Angeles City. It was establish long time ago, many restaurants already tried to compete with it but only this restaurant manage to last long. If you want to visit this restaurant, your budget should range from 3,000-P5,000 (5 persons)

Swahe: P350
This is our usual appetizer. I forgot to take photo of the whole plate of Swahe, It was gone before I know. So I took a photo of my plate instead. Swahe is a fresh steamed shrimp which tastes sweet and really good

Yang Chao P350-500 available in small, medium and large
What is asian cusine without the rice. For me,Fortune's Yang Chao is the best!

Steamed Lapu-Lapu: P500-700 (depends how much the fish weighs)
This Dish was never forgotten. It's my father's not so favorite dish.hehe Well it really tastes good. It's their best dish.

Spicy Crab: 500- 700 (Depends on how much it weighs)

Broccoli: P550

Pata Tim: P700

My favorite beverage Four Seasons: P150

See ya on my next post =)

Niji Japanese Restaurant

Japanese food is our family's favorite! Although it is expensive, it has become our comfort food. Japanese food is healthy unlike Chinese. Japanese are even known for having long lives because a lot of them could reach the age of 100. Their secret???-- The food they eat. Japanese cuisine offers a very large variety of dishes. And I love all of them =)

Niji is our favorite favorite Japanese Restaurant. Aside from our 10% discount we have for being a regular customer It hasthe best Japanese food in town. It is located in Friendship, Angeles City.This restaurant has 4 sections. The Dining area, Sushi Bar, Yakiniku, Tepanyaki corner. The section that will be featured in this post is the Yakiniku Corner.

Tepanyaki is a style of japanese cusine that uses an iron griddle to cook food. In Japan, teppanyaki refers to dishes cooked using an iron plate including steak, shrimp, yakisoba, monjayaki, okonomiyaki.

Yakiniku Squid: P165

Yakiniku liver: P 135

Ebi Tempura: 310 Tempura is a popular Japanese dish of seafood or vegetables that have been battered and deep fried. It's one of my favorite Japanese food.

Sashimi Take moriawase-P850
Sashimi is a Japanese delicacy primarily consisting of very fresh raw seafood, sliced into thin pieces and served with only a dipping sauce (soy sauce with wasabi paste or other condiments such as grated fresh ginger, or ponzu), depending on the fish, and simple garnishes such as shiso and shredded daikon radish. Again it's one of my favorites.

Miso Soup :P50 - the best soup ever. For me it's better than Chinese soup.

California Rainbow Maki- P190
Sashimi is cooked vinegared rice that is commonly topped with other ingredients, such as fish or other seafood. I can live without tempura, Sashimi but not without Sushi. It's my favorite. The best food ever created on earth.

Is your mouth watering now? Me too. Making this blog made me wanna come back there again. There were four of us and our bill totaled P2005 (10% discount not included) If you do pass by that restaurant Pls share your stories with me. Next time I will feature Tepanyaki Corner. I don't have enough photos in that corner because the last time we went there my camera ran out of batteries.

My Fate and Faith

Have you ever doubted that there is God? I have. I hope that after reading this statement I can still get out of the house without being showered by rotten tomatoes. Remember the Beatles saying something like "We are bigger than Jesus"? Why would they say something like that? Because they're stupid? I don't think so. I just think that they were in the moment of their life when they realize that He doesn't exist because they can't feel his presence because of their fame. I've been through that and this might sound preposterous. I guess that most of us will eventually stumble upon the truth of life. So let me tell you about my story.

Just Before September 6, 2003 I can say that I am 90% happy about my life. I'm rich with friends, I do good in school, I'm becoming a little popular in my school because of my talent in dancing. My love for dancing is like a love for my life. It makes me feel alive. And of course I love music as much as I love dancing. I believe that one is essential with the other. And so I learned how to play the piano and drums. And I'm even planning to have lessons in guitar and violin. Aside from these, my family doesn't have much problem in money. I can get around 80% of what I want. I was only 15 then and I've got loads of suitors. But I'm young and quite an experience digger. And much as possible I want to experience a lot of things. I even wanted to be a part of a musical theater play. I'm not an excellent singer but I can sing well enough. And I'm good in acting to. As you can see I love performing arts and I'm quite busy with my life. And all these things make me happy.

In a snap of God's fingers. It was all gone. In the morning of September 7, 2003 I was rushed in a hospital because of brain stroke. I almost died of hemorrhage in my brain. And when I woke up. I was already paralyzed. I couldn't move my left part of the body. I'm so weak. I couldn't walk, my head is pounding, I couldn't dance anymore, I can never play piano and drums again, I'm stuck in the ICU. My parents had the biggest problem in money because of me. They have to sell our van just to pay our debts in the hospital. I was in the hospital for almost a month. Imagine how much money we needed. They wanted me to stop from going to school for a until such time that I can walk again. But I didn't want to stop from going to school. Making me stop from going to school is like taking away a part of my life.

I cried so hard. That night I prayed to God "Lord please give me the strength to walk again, make me move my left leg again. Please. I'll come back to school when I'm able to use the cane." The next morning, my therapist was surprised that I was able to move my left leg. It was a miracle. Then I learned to walk again. I went back to school but I failed my 2 subjects. This is the first time I had a failing grade. In order to pass my junior year, I had to struggle for my grades. I missed a lot of days in school. And while working extra hard for my grades I had to attend my therapy sessions. Imagine me so weak, my left hand is stiff, couldn't even use it and my left feet is struggling to maintain balance.

I asked Him what is taking him so long to make me come back to my normal state.I cried again. I cried for days, weeks and months. I was so stressed. My Stress has turned into distress and depression. Then another problem came when my I started losing my hair. I had an alopecia. I think that I'm slowly decaying. and so I started asking, where is God? is he busy watching over Iraq or he doesn't really exist. If he really existed he wouldn't let these things happen to me. The God that I knew will not let His child suffer. I'm only 15, why do I have this kind of problems? I cried everyday, I even thought of ending my life.

I was so mad at him. I was even cursing God. I lost my faith. I'm mad about everything. I was convince that there is no God.But as I struggle for my survival, Little by little I was learning to live with my new life. I passed my Junior year, In my senior year I fell in love. I was happy again. Then I suddenly realized that why do I whine so much? I'm still very lucky despite of what happened to me. How many people survive brain stroke? My life was extended for 5 years. And in this 5 years I guess I have done a lot. I've read so many books, I've watch so many movies, I met so many people, I laughed, cried, shouted for joy for a thousand times, ate so many delicious foods, fell in love, learned million things about life, prove myself to everyone that I can reach for my dreams and there's a lot out there that I haven't done. And their on my list. I have evolved into a stronger person, I'm about to graduate, my dreams are bigger and my life is getting better. I found God again. When I thought that he was busy watching over Iraq, I didn't realized that he was behind me. pushing me through my limits. People were awed about my will to do things. Now I know why I was able to survive life.

I think that God has shifted my path to the right one because I was being lead to the wrong one. If I didn't got sick maybe I was in a Nursing Course, then maybe I will regret that I was there. Maybe I'm a pregnant little teenager If I didn't got sick because of the influence of my fickle friends. I realize that true friends will stick to you, no matter how much problems you've got and fickle ones will just ignore you when you have nothing to do with them. I'm a better person now. I have discovered another talent I used to ignore before. I enjoy writing so much.My Family is happy settled in a new home. We are complete. Its my grandma's birthday today and I'm so happy that my grandparents are still alive.

Even though I couldn't dance and perform on stage and play musical instruments anymore, I still feel very lucky. Maybe Jesus Christ talked to me when I was about to die and I begged him to ask the father to extend my life in exchange of anything that's why I'm still here. I will never forget the piercing light I saw in my dying moment. I wasn't sure if it was the sun. All I know is that I have cheated death once, and so everyday is now a gift.

(Full surrender requires obeying God, humbling yourself before Him and acknowledging His authority in your life. So whatever happens to you, either good or bad, surrender as you say "It is the Lord. Let Him do what seems good to Him. Samuel 3:18 "

I am nothing without Christ.

Give me an iota of love

Here I am sitting in the corner
Can't believe you told me it's over
I know that I still love you baby
And now I think I'm going crazy

I think I'll be stuck here forever
Without you for me life is over
Don't want you to see me like this
But I'll stay here and wait for your kiss

Iknow that hope will never leave me
I'll prove my love for you you'll see
Come back to me I'll make you happy
It's true that I still love you baby

** This was written last December 11, 2007 I guess I was always on the mood to write poems at that time. I was reading a lot of books and when I get inspired I write.

Still not over you

Tonight, as I lay on my bed
I feel like I'm already dead
I can't believe that I'm still in pain
It's been years since I was in vain

You make me fell in love so bad
Until now memoirs make me sad
How I wish I could turn back time
Then I'll make you stay and be mine

I know that is impossible
Coz Someone's there to catch you fall
'know that she deserves to have you
Because she took good care of you

I'm jealous of the love she have
How I wish it was mine my love
Hoping to be yours forever,
I know someday you'll be through with her

**This poem was written last December 10 '07. Glad I found my notebook where I write my poems =)

Baby Joshua

Today you are born
But your life is torn
Now we’re feeling forlorn
All we do is mourn

It’s so sad to see you in a box
You’re so small, so feeble
My heart cracked into pieces
I hate to see you like this

Please don’t fly away
It’s too early to slip away
I wanted to shrugged you
And make you come back
But I know I can’t bring you back

Goodbye Baby Joshua
Now you are our angel
I hope you can hear me
We love you so dearly

This poem is for me nephew, he didn't last a day in the worLd.. Crying or Very Sad I'm so sad..

Baby Joshua


Here It comes I can smell it, I felt my heart lit
Coldness on my feet, and I know this would be it
Dark clouds are setting in, it’s about to pour in
It’s going to win over the sunlight you’re wishin’

Staring out of the window, watching the wind blow
I know this would take for hours, so just say hello
I can see the trees sway, I love the way they play
Children make it go away, I want it to stay

The sound is like music, I love to hear the flick
Let us sing and dance with its music, stand up quick!
Rain drops falling on our head, enough of teardrops
Laugh till you drop, and you’ll never feel that life flops

I love the rain, ‘cause it washes away my pain
Don’t be in vain; you’ll love the romance of the rain
I think they’re god’s tears; he’s washing away my fears
And why hate it my dear? It won’t cause you a sear

What went wrong Philippines?


I have received a terrible news in facebook about greedy people governing us. I'd like to share this with everyone and hope this message will reach all flipinos specially those who have the power to stop this.

From: Ren International
Sent: Fri, April 16, 2010 7:12:22 AM

This is a forwarded message:
The Financial Analyst of World Bank would like to inform each and everyone of you that the present currency exchange rate of US Dollar to Peso is actually $1 = P52. Your government is manipulating the exchange rate for some years now. It is very much improbable and impossible that the Philippine Peso is appreciating compare to Euro, British Pound, Rials, and any other foreign currency. Even your ASEAN neighboring countries are suffering from the Global Crisis. Singapore , a developed country is affected by depreciation of their currency what more of your country?
We admire you for your hard work but we also pity you for having such a very corrupt government that is taking advantage of your hard earned money.
The ARROYO ADMINISTRATION is blatantly milking each and every OFW's all over the world of billions of pesos for its own greedy, selfish ends. Investigations reveal that this milked money from OFWs will be spent to BRIBE not only PGMA's pet CROCODILES in CONGRESS but some in the SENATE as well for her to PERPETUATE IN POWER BEYOND 2010. The rest would be deposited to the family's SECRET ACCOUNT in Switzerland .
Another money-making scheme is the LOTTERY DRAWS. Filipinos should be aware that all LOTTO DRAWS are orchestrated, and big money goes to the two sons of the lady president. Recent example is the SUPER LOTTO 6/49 draw, where supposedly two individuals from Luzon won. Do you know WHO these individuals are? It's Mikey and Datu, who else? One might ask how can the draw be rigged when it is being televised in front of millions of viewers. The answer is simple. As you all know, all bet combinations are being entered into PCSO's main data base as it is on-line, therefore, it is easy to determine which combinations were NOT betted upon. If they want to raise big money, no winners will be declared until the JACKPOT reaches sky-high because they could dictate the outcome at will. When it's "HARVEST TIME", viola, there would be "winner or winners" and the process repeats all over again. One might ask how this is being done. One insider told our investigators that actually the "DRAWN BALLS", six balls to be exact, are the only set which could fit into the transparent tube which sucks the balls up. All others are slightly bigger than the diameter of the tube which could not be distinguished by the viewers, therefore, there's no way they could be drawn! You Filipinos are being skinned alive, fried in your own fat and lard by your own government. Do you ever wonder why president-elect BARACK OBAMA, avoids your president like a stinking leper?

Happy First

This is a poem I've written and gave Patrick on our first month. Hope You guys like it.. =)

Dear my Life, happy monthsary
Today, I ‘m so happy you are with me
I hope you are too, cause if you’re in blue
I will paint your day a colorful hue

Thank you for everything you did for me
You know that I’ll do anything for thee
I know you care, and now I feel like snared
But it’s ok because it feels so fair

You came and broke down the walls around me
Now nothing surrounds me and I am free
You keep me from my fears and wipe my tears
I want to be with you for thousand years

Baby, I’ve never felt like this before
And you know it feels so right Mi Amor
I know I’m naked and you can see through
I can’t hide, you made me trust. Yes it’s true

Hey! I want to be with you every night
I hope I am not squeezing you too tight
I promise that I’ll never let you go,
I’ll be all that you want just don’t let go

I am sorry that I screw up sometimes
I hope and know you understand my crimes
I’m not perfect but I’m happy like this
Promise, I won’t let you fall to pieces

Honestly, I don’t know why. It is actually absurd to find out why coz it’s impossible. I love you longer than long has been, I love you more than more can be, I love you ten times infinity.

Movement to Kick Out Willie Revillame from ABS-CBN

I recently joined a group in Facebook which is about a movement to make Willie Revillame resign from ABS-CBN. I was delighted when I saw this group.Well I'm not a big fan of any of their competitors. In fact, My family and I are always watching Kapamilya Shows. We don't even switch our channel to their known competitor. I love Kapamilya Shows and Artists.

But I guess, Willie Revillame is an exception. I'm glad I don't see him on TV for days now. Of course everyone knows about the latest unacceptable behavior he showed on National Television last. He dared his boss to fire Jobert Sucaldito for critizing him. What a childish brat!!! Isn't he?

God has given him so much blessings. He was given so many chances to make things right after how many times he had failed in his Showbiz Career. The problem with him is that everything gets to his head. He is bloating with boastfulness. He can't handle it. I think it will be taken away.

I'm not being bias, neither I, don't favor Jobert for his criticisms, besides he gets paid tocriticize. But the thing is Willie became too obnoxious and irascible. he's old, but he is very immature. He must accept these criticisms because he is a public figure. If an ordinary person gets criticize, what more do you expect from a guy like him? Because of money and fame, he steps on the little people and try to hold their lives. I remember when he told a story about Mrs. Charo, he said that she is such a good woman because when Willie ask her to fire someone when he was so mad. Mrs. Charo, rebutted him calmly "You want us to fire him?, what about his family?, his children, how is he going to raise them if he doesn't have a job." She bugs Willie's conscience until he realized that he was wrong. So this isn't the first time he dared his boss to fire someone. He crossed the line this time. So I want him out of the show! He's not even funny! Pokwang is!

I don't want him back on the show. If you don't too, join this signature drive to make Willie Revillame resign. There is also a poll on a Kapamilya Site about Willie Revillame's behavior follow this link to vote. 96% said they didn't like what he did. =)
