We’re learning something new everyday. ~Michael Tigar~

It is being famished that our feet led us to this new restaurant at the new wing of Festival Mall. We were looking for something new to have an early dinner and their facade was too eye-catching, plus the barkers who had us stopped and succeeded in convincing us to try their place.

I specifically like the theme, and asked the Restaurant Manager about it, I told her the story I was able to create out of scanning the whole place, according to her, the owner just wanted it to be different from the others, something outlandish or quirky. Or maybe a term I typically use during the early 90s: eclectic.

These lamps mounted on the walls reminded me of a ship’s hallway. Except for the cemented wall.

My take here is that I visualized a group of adventurers who
might have confronted a not so good weather in the sea and
came to a halt, to a remote island perhaps.

Turning a negative situation into a positive one, the group opted to enjoy just being there so as to survive while waiting for some rescue. Of course, they would have to look for food and there’s no denying that the only approach they could cook their meal is by grilling.

And so they came up with this backdrop. Can you see what I
just visualize? Ala Pirates of the Carribean. =)

When it comes to their menu. You’ll have a few choices, it is a fusion of specialties from Asian countries such as: Thailand, Korea, Vietnam, Singapore, etc. While it’d already suffice since what’s on their list is good enough and would be the usual favorites of foodies like us and pair it with the drink we have in mind.

The attendant recommended that we try the pork & cabbage fried rice, so I got it and Jen tried their signature Phatchick’s fried rice. And paired with tempura and bacon-wrapped Enoki mushroom. That barbecue sauce is so rich in flavor serving the purpose of enhancing what already tastes good to me.
I am at a loss for words because it is my first time to try Enoki mushrooms. I didn’t regret as it is flavorful and the texture is just right.

Spend time with office mates from work or just to bond with friends and family and who just want to relax, spend good times and enjoy the night. Their beverage list are a few typical drinks that any customer should be looking for. Try the TIKI cocktails, it is a first here in the Philippines.

I really like it when stuff are personalized. =)

If you want to experience and wander at something new in
Alabang, they’re located at: Ground Floor, Expansion Wing (Water Garden), Festival Mall, Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City

You can also call them at: 02 2469069 ext:998

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
