Chelsea Market at Serendra

Hubby took me to Chelsea Market, along Fort Bonifacio, for my birthday last June.  Being a complete newbie to the place I was pleasantly surprised to see that it's not a fancy little American/Italian restaurant that I have come to associate it with for some reason, but a quaint little gourmet food market/deli type of place.  I've read somewhere that Chelsea, Manila was inspired by a one stop food haven in New York aptly called NY Chelsea.

Philippine Street Food

I'm super excited for our upcoming trip to Shanghai this September.  Having been to China only once before and traveling to a not so well known small town of Chong Sun, which is few hundred kilometers away from the bright lights of their famed progressive city, gives me even more reason to look forward to this trip.  

While waiting for the chance to scour the city for great cultural finds and gorge on sumptuous Chinese food, here's a compiled list of equally yummy Filipino street food.  I shall try in the next few weeks to document my attempt of feasting everything off the list.

Forever 21 in the Philippines

Finally! I made it to the doors of Forever 21.  It took awhile. I know! I blame hectic work schedule for ruining my shopping life.  But all is well now that I have officially made my first purchase at this oh-so-cheap retail Nirvanna.

Cats the Musical

Last week, Hubby and I watched one of the longest running musical of all time, Cats at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. It was pouring hard and parking was shit as hell, but we did manage to get in before the 8pm curtain call.
