SINGAPORE FOOD REPUBLIC: Introduces New Dishes


SINGAPORE FOOD REPUBLIC: Introduces New Dishes
I was invited to a dinner by HK Tan of the famous Nasi Lemak and Singapore Food Republic. It happened on a Friday, sadly, I had to commute because I am not allowed to bring a plus one. I was so famished and tired when I finally reached Singapore Food Republic in BGC. Enduring a three hour commute from our house is worth it, after I got to taste the Singapore Food Republic's version of Thai Mango Salad!  It was so delicious! I love this spicy dish! Gustong gusto ko ang kagat sa dila. Yum yum!
 Sizzling Japanese Tofu with Seafood. I love any dish with Tofu.
Aromatic Lemon Grass Seafood stick. So yummy dish! I like this!
Kong Pao chicken with cashew.
Braised Pork Knuckle in Superior Soy. According to HK Tan, this is based on Chairman Mao's Favorite recipe.
 Superior Pot with beefsteak.
Spicy Garlic fish fillet with cotton tofu.

I tried some of the dishes above and my favorite is the Thai Mango Salad. If you want something spicy then go to Singapore Food Republic by Nasi Lemak Fort Bonifacio. Hey, don't get me wrong, if you don't like spicy food, they also have other food offering like this yummy Seafood Fruit Salad Croquette. I love this! You can have this dish together with  your choice of one drink and a dessert for only Php 165/ net from 2 pm onwards. Isn't that a steal?


Here is a sample combination, composed of tea tarek, siomai and siopao all for Php 165.00

 

I was able to try the tea tarek, we were entertained on how they make this cool drink. Order one and see a performance like no other!
Singapore Food Republic also has a tasty dessert offerings like this muffin below. The good news is that this yummy muffin is included at their 2 pm until they close promo.

I think it is important to note that all of their ingredients are imported from Singapore so you'll know/taste that it's authentic. It was nice meeting you Chef Joanne! Thank you so much for the warm reception H.K. Tan, Kim and Ms. Cora!

Singapore Food Republic by Nasi Lemak Fort Bonifacio located at Unit 8 Commercenter, 4th Ave cor 31st St Fort Bonifacio, Taguig Philippines (02) 925-1988.

Despite suffering from a viral infection, Asia's Songbird, Regine Velasquez pushes through with her  #Silverconcert at the Mall of Asia Arena last Friday, November 16, 2012, believing in the adage that the show must go on, straining her vocal chords despite her illness. Thus, she loses her voice and had to cut short the concert.

I feel sorry for Regine. I hope she recovers soon. Get well soon Regine!

It is a good thing that Regine Velasquez fans are so understanding. Regine was also helped out by Vice Ganda and John "Sweet" Lapus. Vice Ganda had an an impromptu act to help out Regine.  A TRUE REGINIAN! Please note that this comedy skit was never part of her Repertoire. Thanks Vice Ganda for helping the Asia's songbird and for those kind words.




Free concert repeat

Not one to shortchange her audience, Regine promised to all “Silver” concert ticketholders that she will mount a free concert for all of them at the same venue. Cool! Regine is really nice.

Regine Velasquez's Silver Concert Take 2: Tentative date is on December 8. @cacaimitra will announce the decision on Monday. This is FREE for all Silver Concert Ticket Holders.
Regine Velasquez marked her 25th year in show business via the aptly titled concert "Silver" at the SM MOA Arena yesterday night (November 16) but it rained on her parade.

DIMSUM BREAK: The Home of Good Chinese Food Now Open at THE ANNEX of SM City North Edsa


DIMSUM BREAK: The Home of Good Chinese Food Now Open at THE ANNEX of SM City North Edsa 

To all siomai-eating pinoys: You thought you already know your dimsum?  For all you know, what you have tried might have been nothing but dimsum with extenders and with only soy sauce and kalamansi dip to make it flavorful. It's a good thing that the Dimsum people who inculcate the Dimsum eating habit to almost every Cebuano conquers Metro Manila. Dimsum Break is now open at the third floor of SM City North Edsa The Annex. at unbelievably affordable prices! I tell you, you'll not only see but taste the big difference! In the picture above you can see the following:
  • Empress roll - the one with lettuce wrap, this is my favorite! I so love how the taste slide to my tongue in every bite! Two thumbs up for this! Very healthy! Makulay ang buhay kapag kumain ng gulay!
  • Shaomai - pork siomai so delicious!
  • Bacon Shaomai- the sinful bacon wrapped siomai, yum yum!
  • Quail's egg siomai- siomai topped with quail egg 
  • Mushroom siomai - siomai with mushroom ano beh! Lol!
The above picture is only a steamer basket sampler. You can purchase them cafeteria style. Just point to what siomai you like to order and the friendly and attentive staff will serve them to you!
Crab Princers on stick are so meaty! Lasang lasa ang crab! I love it! On the side is the yummy spring roll.  The Spring rolls (P65) are cooked to a nice crisp, and the sweet and sour sauce it was drowned in was the perfect sauce for it.
Don't forget to order the foundation of Dimsum Break, their core product -the Steamed Fried Rice. Super yummy! Hahanap hanapin mo talaga! Take note Dimsum Break doesn't use MSG!
Cap your meal with the delicious coconut cream. Oh! Fall in love with their mango custard, very delicious, manggang mangga talaga!
As for the ambiance, I am sure, like me, you'll also be fascinated with Dimsum Break's Dimsum wall decor and steamer Basket lamps. It was pure genius!  I love it!
Plenty of other restaurants come and go over the decades in Cebu but Dimsum Break has very good food that stood the test of time. Today, after a couple of decades of evolution, occasional menu additions, tweaks here and there and a steady growth trend upwards, Dimsum Break stands ingrained as a legitimate piece of Cebuano culture, as much a part of the city’s landscape and history.
The movers and shakers of Dimsum Break. Thank you so much to Ms. Tish and Ms. Mae Ilagan for the invitation. The company started in 1969 as "Ding How" then became "Ding Qua Qua" then "Harbor City", and the most recent, "Dimsum Break", whatever name they use the Cebuanos will always love their Sweet and Sour Pork and Steamed Rice. They are now operating a total of 16 branches in Cebu. Having them at SM Annex is heaven's answer to all Cebuanos who are now based here in Metro Manila.
One could never have enough of Dimsum Break's offerings! Mapababalik balik ka sa mura at sarap! Try it, you'll love it!

Dimsum Break is located at the 3rd floor of SM City North Edsa The Annex.

VIDEO: Zoren Legaspi Carmina Villaroel Surprise Wedding
Finally, after 12 years of living in together, Carmina Villaroel and Zoren Legaspi tie the knot in a surprise wedding at Fernwoods last night November 15, 2012.
All along, the unsuspecting bride Carmina Villaroel thought that the gown she's wearing is part of a “family product photoshoot” at the Fernbrook Gardens in Las PiƱas City Thursday evening.

A script that only Zoren Legaspi and his “accomplices” knew  unfolded a real-life drama that brought Carmina Villaroel into tears.

“Will you marry me?” asked Zoren, who was in tuxedo,when he proposed to the unsuspecting bride. Surprised, Carmina still managed to say “yes” to her celebrity partner of 12 years.

                     
Their twins, Cassandra and Maverick, then entered the scene and demanded that their parents get married “tonight!”
Zoren and Carmina tied the knot that very evening.
   
One of the principal sponsors, former chair of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board, Grace Poe Llamanzares said that the wedding was so touching and yes, she herself cried a few times as did many of the guests and, of course, the bride and the newly wed couple's daughter Cassandra.

It was a civil wedding officiated by Court of Appeals Justice Amy Javier.



Designer Paul Cabral organized the entire wedding ceremony.        
             

Among the principal sponsors are:
  •  Kris Aquino
  •  Eric Quizon
  •  Sharon Cuneta
  •  Ben Chan
  •  Felix Ang
  • John Concepcion 
  •  Cory Vidanes
  •  Grace Poe Llamanzares

UNIQLO NORTH EDSA: Opens November 16, 2012


UNIQLO NORTH EDSA: Opens November 16, 2012
It's all system go for UNIQLO North Edsa! Woooot! UNIQLO is Japan’s leading global fashion brand. It is set to open its second store on November 16, 2012, Friday at the 2nd floor of SM City North EDSA The Block
 
UNIQLO North Edsa will be Uniqlo's second store in the Philippines. A fitting follow-up to the very successful opening of UNIQLO’s first store in the Philippines in June this year at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City.
 
The choice of SM City North EDSA in Quezon City was made to serve primarily Quezon City residents and other key areas in this part of northern Metro Manila. Yes! This is good news for Northern residents like me and you! 
Quezon City is an acknowledged business, entertainment and lifestyle hub, and features a large concentration of residential areas that makes it an ideal location for UNIQLO’s new store. SM City North EDSA, on the other hand, is a top-of-mind choice for shopping and leisure activities in northern Metro Manila. 
Oh la la! I am so lucky to be invited to a shopping spree at Uniqlo North Edsa two days before its grand opening on the 16th. I was able to buy two (2) pants and two (2) shirts. #Napagastos ng wala sa oras. Lol. Well, Christmas is around the corner so splurging once in a while especially if it is a sale is just okay, don't you think so?
 
I saw a couple of bloggers, members of the press, models, singers, actors, actresses enjoying shopping at Uniqlo last night. 
We had fun shopping last night! Thank you Uniqlo, sa uulitin! Pants can be bought as low as Php 590 to Php 1990. Shirts as low as Php 190, Php 290 and Php 590.
 
With the upcoming opening of its 2nd store in the country, UNIQLO is right on track in its target of opening more stores in the Philippines that will bring UNIQLO’s excellent products to more people in other areas. 
The Philippines is the 12th branch outside of Japan where UNIQLO has presence, after opening stores in the US, UK, France, Russia, China, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan. UNIQLO also operates stores in other countries in Southeast Asia such as Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore.
 
UNIQLO is seen as an innovator in the global apparel industry because of its wide array of product lines that are highly functional and of outstanding quality at an affordable price. 

UNIQLO promotes its “MADE FOR ALL” philosophy, whose underlying objective is to provide casual clothing that is made for all people regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or any other ways that define an individual.
 
The salesman was encouraging me to buy a Ghost in the Shell Black shirt because he claimed to have sold one to Korina Sanchez.

The UNIQLO store at the 2nd floor of the SM City North EDSA The Block will be open beginning November 16, 2012,  from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends and 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on weekdays.
 
Are you all gear up shopping at Uniqlo North Edsa? Don't be left behind. Be there at 10:00 a.m. sharp on November 16 2012, Friday para di ka maubusan! 
I just can't get enough of Uniqlo's Special Sale! I'll be back for more at UNIQLO SM City North EDSA Store's grand opening on Friday, November 16, 2012 at the 2nd floor, The Block, SM City North Edsa, Quezon City, Philippines! See you there!
