Dr. Martens reopens in the Philippines!!!

Imagine how happy Doc Martens lovers here in Manila were when the beloved shoe brand announced they’re opening in The Fort Strip in Bonifacio Global City! A lot of us were frustrated because there is not one outlet that sell trusty ol’ DM boots before. So when it reopened its doors again to Manilenos, there is no way we would miss it!

Dr. Martnes Philippines is located at The Fort Strip – in a container van! Very cool concept! It looks like pop-up shop, but when we asked around, the people working there actually told us it’s here to stay! OH JOY!!!!

PdP Blogger Hangout at Milky & Sunny

I think it’s just appropriate that I’m blogging this just now. Though yeah, it’s a little (if Dec. 7 is just yesterday to me, yes haha) late. I miss PdP team and these bloggers!

Punchdrunk Panda gathered bloggers last Dec. 7 at Milky & Sunny to introduce to them (and give them also, you bet!) the latest designs of their new batch of laptop sleeves! Nothing really formal here, we just met, ate really delectable breakfast food (even if it’s 3pm-ish! ALWAYS YUMMEH!) hogged on milk tea, and just had fun. Sometimes, it’s nice to have a break from the usual events we have in town. This little get-together is a manifesto to that!

Add to that a really fun photo shoot with them bloggers! Lemme see yo swagger, guys and gals! Shot none other than by moi.

It was really a fun day! But what makes this thingamajig happier is zeh FOOD! Introducing Milky & Sunny’s bestsellers!

DSC_0605Broccoli and Mushroom Casserole. Perfectly cheesy and healthy chow. I love how the broccoli is cooked just with the right crunch – not to0 tough, not too soggy. Also the faux meat flavor added by the mushroom is tricking my taste buds.

DSC_0606Bacon Tostadas. This comes in three or four (can’t remember, sarreh haha) but the moment it lands on the table, people grabbed instantly. Bacon-y goodness with the tomato sauce and cream with veggie crunch to boot. Who eats this for breakfast??? I’ll certainly would!

DSC_0608Chicken and waffles. Waffles ain’t normally savory, but this one is soooooo good. I like that they added mustard — totally a mustard junkie :P

DSC_0611Strawberry Cream Cheese Pancake. Definitely the star of the meal! Though I’d like fresh strawberries, the jam worked out just as fine. Cream cheese is the way to go too!!! Sent endorphins all the way!

DSC_0612Breakfast Enchilada. I don’t know how an enchilada should taste like, but I like their sauce and that they put so much cheese!

DSC_0615Tapa with garlic and egg. I’d like my egg to be sunny side-up though. Tapa, on the other hand, is cooked well — a little rare would do, but this is fine again. GARLIC rice is GARLIC rice. I loooooooove!

Can I just have breakfast food all day?
