Gibbs' Hot Wings

I am never a fan of spicy dishes! call me boring but yeah, i just don't! :p Last night, i was with my boyfie's teammates to dig in to spicy madness! hahah! but at the back of my mind, i was hoping they serve "not so spicy" chicken wings and some pasta perhaps... Lucky for me they do have! yeyeye! 

We went to Gibbs' Hot Wings and dined at their 2nd branch located in Streetscape, Paseo Saturnino, Ma. Luisa, Banilad. They're currently on soft opening, open 5:30pm to 11:30pm. You may check their Facebook Page for more info and pics. :)

The spicyness and hotness of their wings are set to 5 levels! You may choose from Original, Hot, Insanely Hot, 2 Intense and the spiciest, Freakin' Hot! which level u think u can tolerate? Me? well, just level 1! haha!

i love how they utilized old newspapers as place mats.
we should know how to reuse stuff ! :p

and here's my special request... Pasta Carbonara (165pesos)
that's their Spicy Hot Wings (195pesos)! We chose original, hot and insanely hot!

this one's my NEW FAVORITE! I'd personally recommend their ANGEL WINGS (225pesos)
i love how it's got wings piled up with herbs, pepper, melted parmesan cheese
soaked in carbonara sauce! the thought of it now just sends me drooling! 

we had 2 pitchers of  Iced Tea (150pesos/pitcher). i kinda envy their pretty glass jars...
made me wanna bring one home! haha! :p

nothing fancy in the interiors... just that lovely GIBBS' graffiti with guests' scribbles everywhere!

it was our 2nd anniversary actually... and he gave me a box of cupcakes! sweet huh?!
we didn't plan to have a special dinner together for we'll celebrate it instead in the beach.
and that's gonna be tomorrow! so laters guys! i'll definitely share it here next week! :)

Birthday Treat | Fudge, Ayala

I have this friend so dear to me that I haven't been able to talk to for quite a while now. We were classmates in high school and went to same university in College. We both went to same company after college for our first work experience until she decided to pursue our nursing profession, while I stayed in the BPO. :(  You can really tell how we're used to be together. Since it's her birthday, I wanted to treat her for breakfast. We were undecided where to, so we stroll around Ayala and unanimously chose Fudge. True friends think alike! :) What's nice about Fudge is that they offer Breakfast, Pasta and DESSERTS! perfect for birthdays, right?

Happy Name Day Jasmine! you're 29 now! hahah! gorness!

early birds have all the place to themselves! heheh! love it when it's not crowded!

Catching Up | The Socials, Ayala Cebu

A college friend arrived a few days ago from New York. Yup! New York! When can I ever get to experience being out of the country for work...or for good. Haha! She moved there right after graduation, got married and have kids. Isn't it worth the time to catch up on things we've missed on each of our lives? So where is the best place to chill? I suggested we go and hit The Socials, located 4th level New Wing Ayala Cebu. It's the newest trendy café served with relaxing ambiance, good food and accommodating staff. I just loved that it has an open bar with  flat screen TV airing sports like soccer, plus wine and alcoholic beverages readily accessible for grabs by guests. Having been able to pass by this café countless times, I wondered how much it would cost to dine at The Socials. And because bill's on her, I wouldn't worry at all! :) yeepppeee! :) What I am excited about is my 'pasalubong'!

It's like nothing has changed! She's still that same sexy, and pretty since the last time I saw her!

Appetizer: Caesar Salad with Chargrilled Chicken Breast (P395.00)
baby romaine, poached egg, home-cured bacon, croutons, and parmesan cheese


and because we're older now, we preferred Mocha Frappe (P175.00) instead of cocktails... HAHA!

t'was after lunch already so we decided to have Nibbles instead of a full meal! 

Truffle Parmesan Fries (P160.00)
Chicken Wings (P325.00) with home-made chili dipping sauce

and my pasalubong! yeyeye! a lot of markers for my doodling and drawing! :)

Team Socials | Wakamatsu Yakiniku

Because it's Monday today, and it sucks! hahah! i'm not gonna blab much about our Team's first dinner together. I'll just flood u guys with pics of what happened last Friday night.  Our TL did a reservation at Wakamatsu Yakiniku located in Pacific Square, Mabolo. By the way, for the sake of defining terms, the word “Yakiniku” in Japanese means “grilled meat”. So, from the word itself, we'll do some grilling!!! FUN right? 

We availed the dinner buffet for 620 pesos per head! So worth it, considering we can order all we want! plus we have one round of sweets after! drinks excluded but it's fine coz it'll just cost you around 60 pesos. But still, we don't have to worry, bill's on our company! hahah! mao d i nka afford!

Rainy Date | Handuraw

There is really something about the rain that makes you crave for anything random! May it be pasta or pizza or cheesecake or beer, etc.!

So last night, we decided to celebrate our monthsary a day ahead... 3 hours ahead to be exact! hehe! He wanted beer and chicken while im still figuring out what i want. We grabbed a cab and headed to Handuraw Gorordo! They serve a variety of food on their menu. They're known for their pizza paired with a bottle of beer. Yet we sort of had this mutual decision to order their rice bowls! hahah! Guess we were that hungry, huh?
