Buffet 101 International Cuisine - Glorietta 2, Makati City

Rex, a good friend of mine, took me and Robert to dinner sometime last year. Yes, this is yet again another long overdue blog update. It was his birthday. We’re supposed to have steak at Bubba Gump’s but we changed our minds and decided to go with Buffet 101 International Cuisine instead, which I thought was a good idea since we both love to eat a lot.

Buffet 101 International Cuisine has several locations in Metro Manila; this branch is the one closest to where I live. Located at the New Glorietta 3rd Floor, Glorietta 2, Ayala Center, in Makati City, this place exudes an air of smart, refined elegance with their luxury-hotel-like ambiance — with lovely luxurious decors and appetizing lighting.

Note that I was only able to take few pictures of the place and the food because it was too crowded, and I was having a hard time moving around. Now – without further ado, here's our dinner experience at Buffet 101.

Kirstyn’s Book-Inspired Birthday Cake

My eldest step daughter, Kirstyn, turned 12 last January 15. Her Daddy wasn’t able to celebrate her birthday with her as she spent it with her Mom. Though it’s a bit late, Daniel still wants to give Kirstyn a little birthday celebration.

Our Kirstyn is a big reader. She and I both love books and reading. So Hubby decided to get her a book-inspired cake. Hubby ordered it through Lina's Custom Cakes (visit her facebook page, she’s amazing). Isn’t this the cutest cake ever? Talk about devouring a book – literally! My mouth actually watered just looking at this cake. I'd also like to have one on my birthday. Ha-ha!

Have a wonderful day. J

My Medical Examination Experience at St. Luke’s Medical Center Extension Clinic (Visa Interview Requirement)

It’s been months since hubby and I have been working on my spousal visa going to the US. Yes, we finally decided that it is about time for us to live together — after being away from each other for 3 years (total of 6 years since we started our relationship). And now that we finally got my interview date, I started working on the additional requirements needed for my interview.

Medical exam, I believe, is one of the most important parts of the whole immigration process. The US is very careful when it comes to the health of the people going in and out of their country, which I believe is for the common good of everyone.

Before I start telling you my experience, I want to remind everyone that the US Embassy only accredits medical examination from St. Luke’s Medical Center Extension Clinic. NO, you cannot have your medical tests done elsewhere.

Kaya Korean Restaurant - Glorietta 2, Makati City

It’s not really surprising that I am crazy over Korean food and culture, as some of your know how addicted I am with Korean dramas. Whenever I get a chance, I always try to eat out or search for a new Korean restaurant in my area. Kaya Korean Restaurant is not new, though I have tried their food through Food Panda delivery a couple of times, I still want to dine here just to check what my other options are…and freshly cooked food tastes slightly better than those delivered ones.

My Top 10 (Favorite) Best Korean Dramas of 2015

Hello there. How’s your 2016 going? Today I am posting a general response to the question I’m asked most: what’s your favorite Korean drama in 2015? I’ve answered that question timidly most of the time, but today seemed like an appropriate time to finally hash it out.

I honestly had a hard time putting together my top 10 list. 2015 has been fascinating year for Korean Dramas. You have no idea how many times I’ve changed this list – swapping this drama for that, moving this drama up or down the list a few notches – as I look back with all the dramas I’ve watched in 2015, indecisiveness took hold. But don’t worry you guys, I got it together. I love a lot of dramas last year, and I could’ve easily expanded this list to Top 20, but I want to stick with Top 10 that I am quite happy with. So without further ado, I present to you my Top 10 (favorite) Korean dramas of 2015. 

10. Mrs. Cop

Main Cast:
Kim Hee Ae as Choi Young Jin
Kim Min Jong as Park Jong Ho
Lee Da Hee as Min Do Young
Son Ho Joon as Han Jin Woo

My Short Review: Mrs. Cop is a solid cop drama. I love Kim Hee Ae’s character – smart, strong, admirable woman who sticks to her principle and a good leader who truly earns the respect of her team. The plot was satisfying. There are flaws along the way, but I ignored them as I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the journey with our cops. I love how the team are perfectly balanced and work together seamlessly. They always get the job done. And we got some kissing, that’s all I asked for. Haha!
