Mr. Kurosawa

Last Saturday after a very relaxing massage at The Spa Libis, we went over to Eastwood mall to have late dinner. We ended up choosing Jap food over Italian and Thai. We ended up having dinner at Mr. Kurosawa.

The place was pretty jam-packed and there were a number of people waiting to be seated when we got there. We were lucky to be seated right away because we only needed a table for two. But we ended up outside.. not bad as well because I noticed that the tables inside are arranged really close to each other. One thing I noticed though, was the ceiling fixtures. They really looked cool.

Off to the food, our orders:

Tuna Sashimi

I wasn't able to take note of the price. I was a bit disappointed with the serving size. I remember really raving about the sashimi size from another Japanese Resto, see here. In all fairness, it tasted fresh and clean.

West End Wagyu - P399

I liked the Wagyu balls, it was flavorful and a little bit spicy, the pasta I'm not a big fan of. Arvic did like it I think. :)

Japanese Fried Rice - P78 (per cup)

Lots of rekados.. confusing flavor. Good for the tastebuds I think, because they get confused. Haha!

Ika Fry - P178

This can be shared by 2-3 persons. I was surprised by the big serving. Crispy as well.

Final verdict: It's not one of the best Japanese restos I've been to. And a little bit pricey for their servings. I won't scratch it off yet because I have yet to try their Maki. I have a feeling it'll be similar to the other Jap restos this one is affiliated with (SumoSam, John & Yoko).

I'm out.

I agree with KG, the ambiance is remarkable. The establishment's name is so jap talaga, nothing you can deny. Haha.

i agree the prices on the menu are a bit steep. same with john and yoko and sumo sam which we have tried several times. (sarap din kasi, hehe)

i like their food but not the price and moreso the service. wait staff needs to practice smiling more often! pero sexy and outfits lalo na sa john and yoko!

you may want to try iwo jima next time you visit mr. kurosawa (if there will be a next visit from you) it's a pizza with mango and nice flavors into it. invite you to view my post about it. -->

Mother's Day 2017

This time last year, I was celebrating this special day for mothers with our little munchkin still inside my tummy.  I felt I had the right to co-celebrate with all amazing moms (and dad-moms, lolo/lola-moms, sibling-moms etc) of the world because technically I'm a mom already. Little did I know that being a mom is far from what I imagined it to be. Spoiler: IT'S WAY BETTER! :)
After giving birth, I was exhausted. Happy, relieved, and just plain exhausted. It was a grueling almost 24 hours of "labor". I was brought to the hospital around 6AM on the 27th, hoping that I will give birth a couple of hours later so I was pretty sure our little boy's birthday will be July 27. It took me a whole day of waiting, monitoring, cm-checking and "doc wala pa ba talaga" questioning before finally seeing our little one the morning after at 5:55AM.
This year, I am definitely, solidly, officially, proudly a mom on mother's day. Everyday I thank God for this blessing…


Who knows how to play Sungka?

What's Sungka you may be thinking? Well, let's allow good old Wiki to define it for us...

Congkak (pronounced [tʃoŋkaʔ]) is a mancala game played in the island of Borneo, Singapore, and Peninsular Malaysia. Minor variants are known as Tchonka, Naranj, Dakon or Sungka and are played in Indonesia (mostly Java), Sri Lanka, the Maldives, southern Thailand, the Philippines and the Marianas. In Indonesia, it is called "Congklak" meaning cowrie shells, which are often used as pieces. On the island of Java, it is called "Dakon" and little red seeds are used as pieces. In the Philippines it is called "Sungka" and shells are used as pieces. Congkak is believed to originate from the word ‘congak’ which in old Malay Language means count.
When we were in Boracay last April, this game was played during our free time. I love playing it! Especially if my opponent's Arvic because I pretty much win all the time. Haha! Kidding aside, I…

Hoyohoy Villas

I didn't know what to expect on our summer trip to Bantayan. I was in Cebu with my family just a couple of weeks before our Bantayan trip so I knew what to do when we arrived at Cebu, and that is to look for our shuttle that'll bring us to the pier so that we can go on a ferry boat to Bantayan Island. What I wasn't ready for was the long shuttle ride. It took us, 1.5-2 hours of roadtrip until we got to the pier and another 1.5-2 hours on boat.

Tired from traveling, we were just really ready to get to the hotel/resort to freshen up. . We were welcomed by colorful pedicabs when we arrived. Manong told us they were our ride to Hoyohoy Villas.

I'm happy the place didn't disappoint us

We were given complimentary refreshments right away...

Our villas...

Exploring the resort..

I really liked the place... the fun was just about to start. :)
