the Toy Kingdom Toy Expo Philippines 2012

here's telling through photos what else happened
at the Toy Expo Philippines 2012. :)


it was fun, and more! ;) i enjoyed having been able to
see the launch since the event wasn't officially open to the public yet.
there were no lines so we were able to try out everything and
roam around with ease. til next year guys! :)


Let’s Join Chef Lau’s Dinner Party!

i first met (ha! more like saw) Chef Lau on tv while he was showcasing
a mouth-watering cold concoction (nahulaan nyo ba kung ano?). ;)
since the tvc featured a hotshot chef, syempre i googled agad!

and i loved him since then. among all the reasons why, i admire most his
humility. many towns have many good chefs and it's just wonderful to know one who's not
only great but also kind. i love how he makes his delish creations available to people of
all walks of life. his restaurants are just places of love -- places where you
feel love and give love. :)

that's why i'd love to be invited to Chef Lau's dinner party!
i'd like to bring my mom to a lovely dinner
and a dinner party by THE Chef Lau is just perfect.
i know she'd be more than honored. and she so deserves the dinner
pampering. :) my Mama is very hardworking! kahit maingay, she always
goes out of her ways and means to be the best Mama that she is. :)

kaya i make sure i prepare food that's nakakawala-ng-pagod delicious
kind of way, as i'm always tasked to make dinner. a few months back, i remember
i noticed Mama skipped a few dinners and when asked, all she gives is this face...
we'd later learn that she's having her usual ngilo fit that normally involves
an assortment of pangs and stings. yes, maarteng ngipin! so instead
of devouring the kaawa-awang GG on the table, sleep na lang.

but like i  said, that's a few months back 'cause she now has a secret weapon!
yes, this dude Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief!
ever since i could remember, Mama would always try out all sort
of herbal this and that and what-nots to help her with this kaartehan of her teeth.
uhuh, we'd tease her of the kaartehan coz we kind of feel helpless for her.
i know she wants to eat, she needs to eat. kaya buti na lang
Colgate introduced the solution! :) bitbit na nya lagi yan! sa kikay kit daw nya.
secret weapon, i told you! :) to work, to anywhere she knows she might need it.

kahit siguro sa dinner party ni Chef Lau bitbit the secret weapon! =D

keepig my fingers, and my toes, crossed!
i shall meet you soon Chef Lau. :) and you shall meet my Mama,
and her secret weapon. ;) don't worry she won't have to sleep instead, pramis! :)

i guess Mama and i have to train so we can harness our devouring skill
and prolly add some 'class' to it for a dinner party by THE Chef Lau. :)
P.S. let's join Chef Lau's Dinner Party. ;)

the new The Old Spaghetti House menu

...or the menu at least. :)
this post is kind of late since they've launched their new menu
already a few months back. but that's okay because this isn't going to be
really comprehensive anyway. :) i just snapped a few things about the new menu that i love.

this postcard collage on the back cover of the menu is really lovely!
i like artsy stuff so the pretty layout is such a pleasing welcome for me. :)

 the messages on the postcard are really sweet too! :)

 i love TOSH! it's a warm, comforting joint for me.
it gives me kitchen-from-my-own-home feeling every time i visit. :)

 and they have this as their proud addition! :) whattatreat!

and the menu doubles as an envelope bag! just how cool is that! :)
it's what i really love about the new menu. it's gotten so slick! *wootwew*

come rain, come sun, please do not take away my love...
chicken picatta! ahhh, i run out of words each time. :)

and if some magic just happened right there,
and you're wondering why you suddenly have that urge to run to the
nearest TOSH, well, stop wondering and just run! and if you may,
run to these branches above so you can take advantage of the
TOSHMANIA Pasta All You Can Wave 4. =D


the droolville QR code

hi frogs & rats! ;P
guess what i've got for all of us. hahaha. :D scan away! :)

Vanity Fair's Best Undressed List

i love Vanity Fair!
and although i would love to count the ways how i love thou,
i have a different business at hand at the moment. :)

while everyone (including me!) is going gaga over the big September issues,
others' eyes are solely set on Vanity Fair's International Best Dressed List.
but as i don't want to over-indulge, i would like to set the rest of the world's eyes
to an equally drool-worth list from VF still, of course.

i would love to pose for a nude portrait!
that is if a photographer is suicidal enough to snap me in my birthday suit. ;D

nude portraits can be as classy as those with ladies, and gents, posing
while clad in their Sunday's best. good direction is what it takes.
it can either be an initiative from the model/subject, a direction from the photographer,
or a detailed instruction from a creative director.
Lindsay Lohan's photo above (the 1st one) is good example.
from all the photos in this list, hers comes very close to the top of faves.

now of course there has to be a Kate Moss portrait in the archives. ;)

i am speechless with this photo of Lady Gaga. since she's always
at her eccentric self, this is a breath of fresh air to my eyes.
she could not be more mainstream than this and i love it! :)

Gisele Bundchen almost-stripped and stripped photos are not really
rare so kudos to VF for choosing this photo for the list. it's not
too revealing but it's still got Bundchen magic! i wonder though,
the eye mask seems to be doing the magic here. ;)

there are photos of men of course! ;D
i'd like to take this opportunity to thank the lovely people at VF
for including this photo of Mark Wahlberg. :)
i love him like i love my coffee and iced tea! :)

 Jennifer Aniston is not the only one from the list with more than one photo,
but since i love her, i am sharing two photos of her here. ;)

if i ever find my suicidal photographer, here's a perfect inspiration.
i believe nude portraits could not get any more classy than this. :)
until then, i shall drool. :)
