Meeting Jacobo's Management

It was a Saturday Night and after checking out the cool cars at CAR TALK AT THE WALK, we headed to Jacobo's Bistro for dinner and refreshments. I have reviewed Jacobo's Bistro before and had swore to go back for their Salt & Pepper Spare Ribs! While we were ordering, the manager approached our table and said that they had read my review and were grateful for the good review! Then we were intorduced to the President of Jacobo's Bistro, Ms. Monica Huertas.

We also met one of the owners of Jacobo's Bistro, who is very lovely by the way.

That night we got the same excellent service from the staff like our first visit and gladly we got a bigger table this time! And there were more entrees on the menu!

And The Bistro Chopsuey tastes great! The sauce tasted like shrimp and squid broth and the veggies were sauteed just right, still crisp!

Arizona Green Tea

7-22-09: Shake, Pao and I headed to Coffee Dream Gorordo to wait for my brother Edd to finish their "Persons" group study. It was a haven for law students; quiet and less crowded!

So we were there enjoying the free wifi connection, watching videos from Super Junior to Wonder Girls. We are such Kpop Fans! hehe.

Then my tummy started grumbling and ordered Corned Beef Sandwhich and Arizona Tea with Ginseng!

The Corned beef sandwhich costs 80php and Arizona Tea costs 130php.

Arizona Green tea with Ginseng tasted blunt and plain considering its priced at 130, I expected it to be a little strong. I tried tasting natual Lychee tea from Shenzhen China and it tasted a whole lot better and its much cheaper, prized at 3Yuan (around22php). Arizona's bottle is sooo cool, though. I placed it on my wine cabinet and it looks great! gonna buy the other 3 flavors to complete the set! hehehe.

As for the Coffee Dream Corned Beef Sandwhich, it was cold, very plain and everything inside was falling all over place. There should be a toothpick to hold everything inside and they should have toasted or heated the sandwhich.

Believe The Pop Musical

Play date: July 24-25, 2009
Venue: Onstage Cinema One Ayala Center Cebu

"Believe The Pop Musical" is a religious and inspiring musical play with a powerhouse cast.
Believe the Pop Musical
Brief Description of the play (from the play booklet):
It's a story of the transforming power of LOVE and the miracles it can do.

believe the pop musical

A person's journey from fear to Love is shown here through several characters with different levels of fear.

believe the pop musical

The bondage of fear is broken and the gift of faith is realized when Love touches the heart.

The Power of Love transcends the law of this world.


IN This Story the spirit comes in whimsical guises and uses people, relationships, and situations as a call to always choose to see Love in a world of fear.


The cast sang songs that are current which most young generation can relate to, and incorporated them into short stories from fighting cancer, recovering from drug addiction, believing in oneself to sexuality issues.


keith martin


No doubt that performance was great, but for me the story is quite common and tackled only the tip of the iceberg.Like when Keith played the drug addict who struggled and found God and recovered. Nonetheless its inspiring and empowering.


Believe, The Pop Musical stars Isabella(daughter of Kuh Ledesma), Keith Martin, Radha, Guji Lorenzana, Marq Dollentes, Benjie Layos and Mae Ann Araneta.



I would say that Radha would be my favorite singer over all the performers. Amazing Voice!


Pieces from the Furniture master Kenneth Cobonpue were used during the play and fashion creations by Jun Escario, Protacio and Salvador Malto.

Boyz2Men Live in Cebu!

It was during 6th Grade I first heard of "End of the Road" by Boyz2Men. My aunt from the states sent me the Cassette Tape and had borrowed and brought my dad's Walkman to school, because everyone else would be bringing one, hehe.


"Am Down Abandon Me!" hahaha. A line that my singer friend Arman use to sing and make fun of the lyrics of "on Bended Knees" in high school. It's a joke that until now everyone laughs about during karaoke sessions!

BOYZ2MEN Live in Cebu! It fell on a Wednesday and is for the benefit of Cebu Street Children! Surprisingly a lot of seats where empty! Is it because it's a Wednesday? Nonetheless, Boyz2Men were great!

And yeah yeah, i only heard 3 1/2 songs because there were no parking spaces left and had to park at IT park and walk all the way to Waterfront! But still enjoyed the 25mins of Boyz2Men! hehe

Kablaaaam on my Fave Mash!

My siblings and I share the same love for Mashed potatoes. and we would agree that the best Mashed Potato in town is at Dessert factory!

Just recently, my bro Edd and I had dinner with our friends at Dessert Factory Ayala Center Cebu to grieve our failed attempt to watch HP6 because tickets were sold out!

Edd and I were boasting that Dessert Factory's Mashed Potato was the best in town and a must try! The smooth mashed poatato topped with oozing hot and delicious gravy which we shared and enjoyed with everyone until Edd chewed on something..... a sticker!

Yeap, a sticker! We were laughing around jokingly saying "CONGRATULATIONS" like it was a price or words of wisdom from a fortune Cookie! We called for a manager to report the incident and in a few minutes a manager came. Edd narrated the unfortunate incident and the first thing that came out of the Manager's mouth was "DILI TINGALI NA SA MASHED POTATO SIR, SA CHIKEN TINGALI NA!" (it might not be from the mashed potato but from the Chicken). And suddenly our table went silent and blank faces clouded the table! DUH! It really wouldn't matter on where it came from, it's there and she should have apologized and it would have been okay. But noooo, her follow up statement was "sure ka sa Mashed potato na sir" (are you sure it's from the Mashed potato)." Again our faces went blank and eyes rolling around the table seeing Pao, Greg and Shake starting to get annoyed and irritated. So we asked fot he bill, and the manager's resolution was to have the mashed potato on the house. So when we got the bill, there was MASHED POTATO on the bill! so much for a resolution. Greg was so pissed off so he called the manager again! and reported the Mashed potato on the bill which was supposed to be slashed off the bill. So we have to wait again for around 5 minutes for the refund. And when the manager came back, she also had slashed the buffalo wings off the bill. Resolved? Not really. It's not what was slashed off the bill, but the service and the sincere apology should have been the resolution.

Though this may be a bad experience with one of my fave restos in Cebu, would still love to comeback to Dessert Factory! (I love their Buffalo wings, Boneless Crispy Pata, Pork Belly and my fave Mashed Potato) I just hope the people at the kitchen should be more careful with what they serve and managers/supervisors should be trained better with situations like this.

Summer Hangover

Summer 2009 was very busy for me and massage was the only thing that kept me destressed. But before summer ended, I promised myself to catch a little sun and get my lazy butt out of my office chair and have some summer fun under the golden sun! And yeap, I did! I have to say, it was a relaxing day at Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort. The smell of fresh sea breeze on my face was a relaxing enough to make me just want to lie on the sand and sleep (since i was deprived of sleep last summer because of work hehehe). But my sleepy head had been enjoying too much that I was so high and awake, like I had a shot of Starbucks Blackeye. There's just so much to do at Maribago Bluewater Cebu, like play giant chess, photograph sights, EAT and lucky for me, witness a romantic wedding at their man made island. But what really made my Maribago stay a relaxing experience was the warmth smiles and great service of Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort Staff. And because of that great service, they were featured by Cathy Aya-ay of ABS CBN for Maayong Buntag Kapamilya. Watch the Maribago Bluewater Video and see what's Maribago Bluewater's edge!

But even if summer has ended, the craving for the sand, sun and the beach has not sink in to my skin. And the much needed vacation I need I hope is near. And am eyeing for the beautiful island resort of Sumilon, Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort. That'll be my temporary heaven for a day, i hope!

Free Coke Zero Baller Bands

Yeap, they are free when you upsize your Mcdo meals to Coke Zero when ordering online!

Though my first experience with the Mcdo online ordering system was frustrating, I think it's a great idea they have the system. The experience was frustrating because I specified on the remarks section of the Fill out Form that I would not be ordering if the baller bands are not available, but when our orders arrived, the baller bands were not delivered. I have to call the order hotline twice and there were even no update calls from the branch that catered our order making the experience more frustrating. so much for customer service!

But yeah, Baller bands were delivered 4 hours after the orders were delivered.

I would still be ordering online because its convenient, but Mcdo staff receiving should be more attentive!!!!!

to order online and get your free baller band visit http://www.mcdelivery.com.ph/ .
Promo is until July 17, 2009 and is not valid for breakfast orders.
