Hi Mommsies! What a great way to start my post by saying, Good Morning!

I had a blast last Sunday, Sinulog 2015 happened here in Cebu simultaneously with the visit of Pope Francis. It feels wonderfully awesome to be a Filipino at this time at age doesn't it?

Last week, I also had a chance to finally visit and dine with my office mates at Brique Modern Kitchen.
This is a new kitchen that just opened last August 2014 here in Cebu. And I was really loving the whole design and ambience of the place. It's more of a resto - cafe of sorts to me.

I don't know but I love Rustic stuffs nowadays ^_^

what we had 

My personal favorite from the appetizers menu is the Truffled Shoestring Potatoes. =) Definitely something new to me and I could not believe I've eaten so much of it. Truffled Shoestring costs about PHP250. I am also giving their pastas a thumbs up. Definitely a must try!

I also personally love the Salads, their a bit new to my taste and it doesn't feel messy when you eat it.

Overall, I loved my dining experience at Brique. The place is cozy but not too shabby. Food is served in less than 12-15 minutes. And the staff are very accomodating. I'd definitely go back there with hubby and Adi with me. =)

Maple Opens in Cebu

September 22, 2014


Hi Momsies!

How are you all doin? I hope you are doing great as you are reading this post today.
I haven't posted for quite some time, so apologies for the blog hiatus.
Anyways, last Aug 30, 2014 (my 28th birthday) was also the grand opening of Maple in Cebu.
I was really excited when I got the invitation from them. ^_^
I was invited for their brunch opening contrary to most bloggers who were mostly invited over for dinner.

Here's a short history about Maple

Maple introduced its first store in 2012 in one of the city’s most discerning communities catering to the upper AB market, a quaint yet intimate place in San Antonio Plaza, Mckinley Road, Forbes Park, Makati City. 


Comfort by rewarding oneself is at the core of Maple menu. With a wide array of choices that build on flavors found in the coastal towns of America, Maple brings the best of elevated American comfort food on the tables of their three branches in selected posh areas in Metro Manila which has now found its way serving in the Queen City of the South located at The Terraces, Ayala Center Cebu. 


It quickly gained a solid base of loyal customers enjoying the unique menu of southwestern American cuisine complemented with high-value signature pancakes and waffles. At the center of their spread is the distinct flavor of maple syrup – the golden liquid that goes best with their most definitive comfort dish: Pancakes. But pancakes and waffles are not the only dishes where the flavor of maple syrup finds its place. Much of the restaurant’s list of popular American comfort food are also doused with the distinct taste of the golden liquid: From the comforting buns served at the start of every meal, right down to sweet endings such as Maple’s Bourbon Bread Pudding.


Maple features all-day breakfast favorites such as the Huevos Rancheros and a surprising entrĂ©e of gourmet Prime Rib Tapa, which a lot of diners agree on its unique take on the ubiquitous Filipino staple. Other choice flavors found in the coastal towns of America also add variety to the menu such as Spaetzle Jambalaya, Fish Tacos and Drippin’ Baby Back Ribs. Prepared by highly skilled chefs, Maple dishes are cooked only from the moment one orders – assuring diners of fresh, hot dishes that will elate the heart. To cap off an exemplary night, specially blended cocktail drinks and dishes can be enjoyed as they experience home away from home.


The place invokes a real magical vibe because of the feel of the place. Older patrons are sure to enjoy the soothing and relaxing ambience, and appreciate good music as they dine. The younger ones on the other hand, will find their own nook in a quaint play area with toys and books to entertain them as they wait for their meal.


Service staff pays extra attention to ensure that all guests; young and old, are transported to a new world of comfort they deserve – that magical experience which Maple aims to deliver.
The design and set up of the launching was really great. It was a Rustic theme inspired which really matched the restaurant's overall ambience



what we had for brunch =)

MAGNUM: My First Bite

July 10, 2012

First saw this product being so popular on twitter by some celebrity I was following. Pictures on instagram always keeps me wondering what this ice cream sort of tastes or differ from the ones already out in the market. I'm a huge fan of Cornetto which I believe right now is a big no-no for me, being pregnant can give you those unsightly feelings of craving no one else could ever put out upon but believe me I ate this one and gave my first bite as soon as one of my office mates brought one during the baby shower they gave me.. hehe. Now that's a certified cheat day, huh? no to sweets but then I consumed it all. As far as my tastebuds are concern, this Magnum in almond is just about the same taste of chocolate one can get on the affordable ones out there. Mind you these choco indulgence thingy is a bit pricey and can already by you two sets of Cornetto at your own flavor of choice. So, then it was free given by my officemate which make it more delictable and enticing to eat. hehe... For the purpose of this blog I came out with some photos of it as a proof .. :) Take a look.
