Pizza, Pasta, Salads at Project Pie BGC

Thursday, June 22, 2017

Guess who just opened up shop at 7th Avenue in BGC, it's Project Pie baby! The store's design has been spruced up, a little far from the former fully industrial look they had in other stores, which they also plan to implement in the near future. The difference is much of the added decor, a little scribble here and there, some pastel colors, lighting, pillows, instagrammable spots and a few bunk chairs and tables for groups of three or four. 

I guess they might have had a millenial inspiration and felt updating the place is vital so people could appreciate spending a little time there and appreciate not just the food, but connect with the ambiance.

Now that's not the only thing that has changed because along with the customized yummy PIZZA, you can now Build Your Own SALAD and PASTA too! They give you a form and a ball point pen so you could choose the ingredients to start building your perfect Pizza, Pasta or Salad and you know what I did? I chose them all!

You will be assisted by the kind pizza guy and no he's not included. They've got a selection of vegetables, proteins, sauces and crust. If you're not in the mood, just tell them and they could suggest too. 

For the drinks, you can have them all UNLIMITED for only 69 pesos and choose between the usual sodas, pineapple juice or iced teas. If you want booze, they also have local and importd beers but it's sold per bottle. You'll save a lot if you get the former.

Then you just have to wait on your table while they bake it in the brick oven. In the meantime, grab another form and start building your own Salad. I wanted a LOT of protein in mine so I've got sausages, pepperoni, tons of different cheeses and peppery arugula leaves. It was drizzled with Raspberry Vinaigrette and voila! My own salad masterpiece!

They also have a section of their kitchen where you can ask them to whip your favorite Pasta. I prefer either cream or pesto sauce on mine but you can always get the usual spaghetti and meatballs as it's still a hit for kids and adults who enjoy marinara sauce. 

I went there the next day to try it is was so good, albeit a little mix up in the orders they apologized but I completely understood. I'm going back there anyway! Now there's no reason to be sad when you're in one of their stores. Grab a slice, a fork and enjoy more at Project Pie today!

Kiko Estrada Has His Eyes On The Target

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

I've had the privilege of interviewing Kiko Estrada a couple years back when the talk of the town was the budding relationship he had with Kim Domingo. I loved their pairing and found they look good in shows, enough for me to follow them on social media religiously. A few months ago I saw the other break down as their pairing ended up in shambles. I felt sorry for Kim but just like any relationship, people have to move on and end what seemed to be forever.

Kiko mentioned "I am thankful for all the people I had a relationship with because we took a lot of things from each other, we learned a lot from the experiences and feel we had to go through that in life. I think I matured early, feel that there's still a lot to learn. Mulawin is just one of the things that was given to me and if you see what's happening on TV, that's not even the biggest part of the story yet. You should wait for what is about to happen in later episodes."

His birthday was much of a way to thank his fans. So in a small way, they got this activity to bond and be close. That tough exterior of Kiko Estrada? Let's just say he portrayed a sweet sweet boy and broke down walls and got these lucky fans what they deserve, some good ol hugs and kisses from the Kapuso star.

The event was also hosted by goodlooking and hunky Yas Marta of boyband group One Up and Businesswoman Tycoon (Ika Anim Na Utos star) Arianne Bautista. Which by the way are both talented and great in their own respective shows. 

They also played a contest to see who would become the best archers in the group, they got prizes and more hours to go back to Kodanda later on just by participating in it. I saw how happy they were spending time with Kiko and he promises that this won't be the end of doing good in the acting department because there are still a lot of things that GMA Artist Center has planned for him, they will be executing it well in the next few years and he's very excited for that!

Here's some of the scenes on video:

Happy birthday and may your career continue to flourish Kiko! :)

The hotel and mixed use property will be also integrated with the existing posh mall SM Aura Premier and the Aura Tower. It's 27 storeys high and will be one of the few iconic landmarks in the district.

Aside from the hotel and serviced residential units, it will also house the Dusit International Manila Hospitality Management School which will open with the property soon. If you are looking for a worthy investment, this will definitely be something to consider if you want to put your money in real estate. Imagine the possibilities!

See What's Cooking at Helen's Kitchen

I've always watched Eat Bulaga and I'm sure I'm not alone when you hear the small anecdotes about how good her cooking is to the point of ALWAYS having the hosts request for it anytime they crave for good home cooking. She always was the topic and true enough she gets them what they want the next day. Judging from the looks of it, her cooking is not just good, but legendary. This goes the same from the stories of Mega Star Ms. Sharon Cuneta, and believe me how she raves about it even then. So I guess it's about time she does us a favor, to basically share us her recipes and the experience what her home cooking feels like.

For those who don't know, she's dubbed as the Queen of the Kitchen with her closest friends and they will attest how good it is. This is co-produced by the creative people behind Idea First Co. who also does shows on TV5. This season, Ms. Helen Gamboa-Sotto will make you drool with food together with her guests the Diamond star Ms. Maricel Soriano, Carmina Villaroel, Eric Quizon, Pops Fernandez, Albert Martinez, Raymart Santiago, Ruby Rodriguez, Gladys Reyes, Donita Rose, Pauleen Luna Sotto and Ms. Pops Fernandez. They will be cooking but more than that, they will tell you their stories too. She will also prepare really lovely ceremonial "Pabaon" or take outs which her celebrity guests will get to take home.

 She gave me Pabaon of Pork Asado too! :)

Ms. Helen Gamboa Sotto laments "I'm going to share all the things that my Grandma, my Mom which was passed on to me. I will also share tips of which I do to prepare these dishes so it would be easier for ordinary Moms at home to follow, saving a buck or few in the process too."

Her show Helen's Kitchen will be aired exclusively on COLOURS via CignalTV starting July 1, that's this Saturday at 8PM. Make sure you watch the show and subscribe to the service because it will only be seen there! Well not really, but they are currently in talks to show this on TV5 so you wait for that. She promised me she's going to cook my favorite CHICHARON on the second season so I'm already excited for that! 

Drooling already!
