Rediscover your favorites at SM City Manila Foodcourt

I had the opportunity to visit SM City Manila just recently and it has improved a lot from the time that I visited it a few years back. One of the things that I missed about this mall is its Food Court, very nostalgic.

SM City Manila, From the day it opened way back April 12, 2000, Natividad Almeda-Lopez corner A. Villegas and San Marcelino Streets, Ermita Manila just beside Manila City Hall became the mall where locals from Manila and students from near universities and colleges found their new place to hang out with family and friends.

Known for its accessibility for several public transportations and just beside Manila City Hall, it has been a known mall  for Manillennials and Millenials who prefer convenience in shopping and a place where they can make appointments with government offices like Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Land Transportation Office (LTO), MARINA for Seafarers and the like. It was a one-stop-shop where you can enjoy shopping, ease-of-access and of course dining.

With this being said, the mall that you loved always gets better for you as SM City Manila gives it Food Court a fresh new look, improved food stores, and an overall interior that will give you a reason to relive the good old days.

Having a fresh and lively interior is what caught my eyes, it has relived the glory days of SM City Manila Foodcourt where you can choose a different variety of food in an affordable price and with more stores to choose from, create your new experiences on this beloved Foodcourt.

Since we're talking about food, I did not let the opportunity pass for me to try most of the stalls in SM  Manila Foodcourt

After a gruesome week at work, I was able to spend my off with my family and we decided to have a staycation, with some recommendations from my colleagues and friends, we chose to stay in Bosay Resort in Antipolo.

Although I have read some bad review, we decided to still pursue to see what they have to offer since the place is pretty accessible by commute or by car.

We stayed in their hotel for 2 days and 1 night and here's what I can say with the experience that we had with Bosay Hotel & Resort.

First of all, I am proud to say that I am really impressed with their customer service. It was superb, we were assisted from the time we arrived, during our check-in process and their staff is really courteous.

Say Yass! to Two Greenwich Lasagna Supreme Regular Pans for the price of one

Pasta comes in different shapes and sizes but whatever it is no one can keep us away from loving it whether it be a red or white sauce, Italian, Filipino Style, Pesto or in any way you like it pasta will be a Filipino favorite.

Speaking of pasta, aside from our regular favorites, this pasta has been a favorite of a lot of Filipino, and this is Lasagna, a delightful pasta dish oozing with multiple layers of meat and sauce on every layer of pasta and cheese, giving every bite a wonderful experience.

But what makes lasagna so special? The Greenwich Lasagna Supreme, for instance, an all-time favorite of actress and Greenwich kabarkada Yassi Pressman, has four delicious elements that make it so hard to resist.
