GREG & SALLY TREE GARDEN CAFE


Finally!

Weekends are best spent with your loved ones. I'd prefer lazy time at home with my family over malling or shopping any time. Last weekend was quite lovely, the cool gang had lunch at our latest discovery, Greg & Sally Tree Garden Cafe.


I remember the feeling when searching for Marikina's Butterfly Garden (World of Butterflies, now closed). Greg & Sally is tucked away in the Ipil street loop, right at the corner of Champaca street. They provide good directions on their Facebook page though ;-)



When we got to the place, I immediately took tons of pictures. I also got to meet one blog reader, Celine! :-) Too bad we didn't have our picture together. Maybe when she joins our next food tour, right, Celine? ;-)

Please enjoy photos of the place below, before we get to the food, of course:








They also have different types of herbs, maybe I'll purchase a pot or two when I come back.





And then our orders arrive! Always the best part! :-)

 This Peppered Pork Steak (150 PhP) is really good!!! Worth coming back for!

 Caldereta House Special

 The Gourmet Tinapa (160 PhP) is another heavenly dish offered at Greg & Sally

 I loved this side dish of green mango and Philippine spinach (Talinum) that comes with the Gourmet Tinapa

 Very refreshing Dalandan Tarragon juice (45 PhP)

After a hearty lunch, we took more pictures around the place, the cafe is very relaxing and very family-friendly. My baby Rence enjoyed it the most, I think! :-p











Another great food destination in Marikina! See you again soon, Greg & Sally!

KEBAB BROTHERS


Finally!

When a Mediterranean or Persian resto opens in the city, I just have to be there! So, months ago, during one of my frequent food trips to Lilac, we passed by Kebab Brothers on Rainbow Street. Beside Kebab Brother is Bun of Brothers, both restos immediately reminding me of Burrito Brothers, but let me discuss the wonder of this trio of restaurants in another post.


 


 


Of course, I immediately included Kebab Brothers in my weekend binge, and when we got there, it was difficult to finalize our order (yes, I wanted to order everything), and the kitchen smelled so good from the grill I was always distracted.


 Wala. Mapuputla talaga.

Here is what we ordered:

When there's Hummus on the menu, I order it. And theirs is really good, and affordable too! (55 PhP)

 Nom nom nom. Extra Pita bread please!

The Beef Kebab (160 PhP) was really juicy and flavorful, the tomato grilled just right, and the garlic yoghurt sauce (which is unlimited, by the way!) was so delicious. I added 20 PhP to upgrade my rice to basmati rice. :-)  I am not commenting on the cucumber because I hate cucumbers. Haha!

Sister got the Chicken Kebab (160 PhP) and she really liked it! I liked it too --- I had to have a taste of course.

The Kofta (crunchy meatballs) (190 PhP) swam in tomato sauce and a little surprise awaits...

Ta-dah! Creamy, cheesy goodness inside every crunchy meatball. So yummy!

What made the dining experience even more fun, is excellent customer service.

 Ate at the counter was very accommodating and entertaining, even if I had to ask a thousand questions about the dishes.

Ate at the service area was also entertaining and she was actually the one who informed us of the promo, details of which you will read below! Yey!

This post ends in even better news! Kebab Brothers, to celebrate their first anniversary, will be taking 50% on all KEBAB and SHAWARMA orders on February 23, 2014, Sunday. Bring your family, friends, loved ones... even me! :-D

Kebab Brothers is a good place to be, for the hungry mob like me and Sis! Bun of Brothers, you're next!

JOHNSON'S BABY POWDER PLAY FACTORY: Turn Powder Time into Play Time!

THIS IS A SPONSORED POST.

Dearest readers, please, indulge my being a (feeling) stage mom from time to time. :-)



Last weekend, we got invites to the Johnson's Baby Powder PLAY FACTORY launch at Active Fun, Bonifacio High Street. Among the many things to get excited about in the event, we got to see Cha Cha (remember "Bulilit"? Of course!) who gave a beautiful rendition of the hit "Let It Go" from Frozen. Yey!

The main advocacy of the event is to make powder time playtime for mommies (and daddies) with their little ones! The Play Factory kit, which you certainly are beginning to see in commercials recently, includes creative ideas on how to make powder time even more fun! Truly, bonding with your babies has no limit --- only if you let your imagination do so.

I was really excited to be part of this event, this is my first event ever with baby! Sharing with you some photos:

 While waiting for the event to start

 Rence surveying the giveways, hehehe!

 Our table! Yey!


We were also given a Play Factory Toolkit, which contained Johnson's Baby Powder, and toys to turn powder time into playtime. The letters are little stamps you can use to make powder impressions on baby's skin, and the itty-bitty trucks can be rolled over powder then on your baby's skin to look like powder tire tracks. Loads of fun indeed! Here are photos of me and baby playing around with the camera while exploring the items in the toolkit:




Thank you so much Johnson & Johnson, and of course, our Nuffnang family for the opportunity to participate in this event. :-) Remember mga Mommies and Daddies, kahit ang powder time, puedeng gawing play time! Ah, I said that with much conviction. Right now, I am making most of my time with Rence as a baby, I know time flies really fast, he'll be all grown up before I know it!


XOXO
