Best Friends Forever

Minsan madarama mo kay bigat ng problema
Minsan mahihirapan ka at masasabing “di ko na kaya”
Tumingin ka lang sa langit
Baka sakaling may masumpungan
O, di kaya ako'y tawagin
Malaman mong kahit kailan

Di kita iiwan sa paglakbay
Dito sa mundong walang katiyakan
Di kita bibitawan sa paglalakbay
Sa mundo ng kawalan

Hawak Kamay of Yeng Constantino- the song we used to sing with my bestfriend Jamica Ann Buenaflor. Since our birth and our childhood years we were always together. We always play toys, read books, little conversations from television shows, sing together, laugh out loud, stroll around, and take care of each other at times of adversity. She’s my “ultimate bestfriend”.

My Ultimate Best Friend

I never imagined having a bestfriend because in fact, I’m a friendly person and everybody is my best friend. But this girl is not the same as the others. She’s exceptional when it comes to our friendship. She will never leave you alone. Even we part ways, she’s still there, keeping in touch, communicating through phone and social networking sites and never leaves me.

That’s why I really love this person since the day that we were born until the end of time. I hope our friendship will last like the others who’s still hanging out together even they are too old. ‘Cause I do believe that our friendship never dies.

A Blog Visit, Dream Come True

I admit, I’m not a professional or earning blogger but for me blogging is a good way to express my feelings, emotions from a particular matter or topic. Ninang Joy Mendiola was the first person who introduced me in the world of blogging. She said that I will really enjoy doing this because I love writing.

Yes, I enjoyed writing blogs, so, when she saw that I love doing this kind of blogging events, people and places (I believe and hope she notice it); she allows me to join her in one of her event in Makati. The event was the photo shoot for Chef Noodle’s Commercial with their endorser, Down to Mars Philippine boy group.

Down to Mars

I am really excited because it was my first time to attend this kind of event (Thanks a lot to my Ninang Joy for this wonderful experience!). She taught me what will I act inside, how will I approach people and other bloggers. I really believe those things will help me once I put my two eyes on blogging.

I met Ms. Geleen Eugenio, the choreographer of GMA Network and the manager of Down to Mars. Her talents (Down to Mars) were really nice and approachable. Also, the Semerad twins whom I had a chance to interview them and took some pictures with them.

I owe my first live blog visit to Ninang Joy because without her I will not experience this kind of activity. If you’ll ask if she’s a blogger, yes not only a blogger but also a very good blogger, coolest writer and a passionate mother when it comes in different aspects in life.

Tempura Japanese Grill: Authentic Japanese Foods!

My last 18th birthday was quite normal like my past birthday celebrations. However, because of those people who loved me, I was very lucky to have my 18th birthday celebration on one of the Japanese Restaurant here in the Philippines, the Tempura Japanese Grill. Together with my tita whom I owe my educational and financial assistance when I was in grade school, we chose to eat in Tempura because we both want Japanese foods and it was our first time to eat here.

Unlike other Japanese Restaurants, Tempura Japanese Grill concept is to offer good food at reasonable price. And that was it! They really offer authentic Japanese foods.

The first food served was our Japanese Milk Tea, Php 80.00. The serving of foods are quite too long so you better have some conversations if you were with someone.

It takes couple of minutes before our appetizer was served, California Maki (rolled maki with kani, mango, ebiko and Japanese mayo) 4 pcs., Php 90.00.

Our main dishes, Curry Gomoku Yakisoba *recommended* ( Savory curry yakisoba served with ika and pork), Php 180.00.

With our Raisu, choices of rice from Japanese cuisine. We ordered, Chahan Rice (Fried rice mixed with ground pork, vegetables and egg), Php 55.00.

Our main dish, Spareribs Sansho Yaki *recommended* (Grilled spareribs cooked in house specialty sauce served with vegetables and sprinkled with Japanese pepper), Php 275.00.
