I have first known of Mitch Albom through his book, Tuesdays with Morrie. I loved it because of the lessons it imparted to me. This new book, The Five People you meet in Heaven, that I got a hold of comes highly recommended by a book lover such as mysef. It is written by the same author. I am not particularly a fan of death and its stories but I am a lover of wisdom. Indeed, this book has a lot of wisdom.
In one of our lunch team bonding activities, Mam Borj suggested we try Sam Chino.
Sam Chino is a very interesting name of a restaurant. Later did I learn that it is named after its owner Jess Himo, an American-Chinese-Filipino native. For me, that explained the mixture of American, Chinese, and Filipino dishes in the menu. They have plated meals and ala carte of your liking.
Cleopatra was said to be the mother of beauty. They say she has very smooth and even skin because she bathe in milk everyday. That could be true or merely an exaggeration. Nobody really knows. But bathing in milk??!.. Seriously? That's awesome! I would want to bathe in milk! ^_^ Wouldn't it be nice to bathe in milk when you get the chance? This A Bonne Spa Milk Salt gives you a piece of that.
Dong Juan and I are in a relationship. Whenever I am alone and want to dine, I come to this place. I also share this love with my friends. I love Dong Juan because of the fact that I don't have to go inside the mall just to eat. It's accessible. The service has greatly improved from the first time I visited too. I remember a few years ago when Dong Juan was just a tiny spot at Guadalupe. Now, you see it everywhere you go. It has branches sprouting like fastfood. It has become ubiquitous and I meant that in a good way. :)
Are you tired of your usual taste in food? Indeed, my best buddy Gay and I are. So we head to Escario Central to try some new delectable dishes at the food place we haven't been to yet. For this stop, we are trying Cafe Sarree.

People are going gaga over the recent release of iPhone 5. More individuals are getting into Apple iOS devices. I've been asked of this question all the time from my friends who are first-time users of iPhone or iPad devices. I don't mind answering them, really, but I think a blog would be a comprehensive response.
