The 3rd and last stop for the night is Buona Vita which was packed for the night with VIPs inside. Good thing Mr. Philip Sayas, the Operations Manager, greeted us and discreetly ushered us at the table outside. We didn't mind dining al fresco style since there was some entertainment outside playing acoustic music.

Buona Vita, which means good life, is a Ristorante Italiano but also features Spanish Specialties. To start off we were served with Pomodoro Soup which is a blend of tomato and basil. The main course being Pollo alla  Caciatorra, a chicken dish with olives, chili, garlic, rosemary and Italian vinegar. The slight whip of the wind outside brought out the aroma of the herbs and spices.

This is not another chicken dish, what sets it apart or the rest of the food being served here is that it does not contain MSG. The flavor comes from the different herbs and spices which are imported internationally. Their kitchen can serve up to 100 guest at a time and they are already getting popular within the European community base here in the south.

They also served a complete set meal during lunch at only Php 250 available from 11 am to 2 pm daily. You can either choose from Chicken or Fish variant. 

Surely, will post more about them when you come back here later... But for now, Good night everyone!

Opening just last February 2014, Chairman Wang's Prime Beef Noodle House is not just the newest restaurant where foodie can go to here in Molito Alabang but also it is the very first branch here in the country. Yes, folks in the entire Philippines!!! We were so blessed to get first dibs in their first month of operations.

Targeting families and groups for gatherings, their function room is also quite conducive for those team dinners especially when you have expat or business clients. Let us not leave out those couples who want to celebrate special dates. Here's a glimpse of what is inside.

With awesome interiors, you are like transported to China where Chairman Wang originated. Ms. Alys Tenorio, who is in charge of Marketing, joined us in our table to introduce the concept behind the restaurant.

"Wang" himself is a master in the art of hand-pulled noodles. With passion in his craft, he became an expert thus dubbing him as the "Chairman". Having branches abroad, foreign investor decided to look into partnering with Filipinos birthing this restaurant that offers their signature dish Chairman Wang's Prime Beef Noodles. What makes it prime beef, well it is Angus nonetheless.

We also tried their Pork and Chives Dumpling, the other half steamed and the other half fried. Downing it down with their own blend of ice tea -- the Shanghai Lily. This is just the tip of the iceberg, patikim pa lang kumbaga...catch back this post for the rest of the pictures. Burp! Ooops...hihihi.

It is going to be a long Friday night for The Yaps Tandem but hey who are we to complain. We got invited by Molito Alabang for their very own Blogger's Night wherein we could go around the vicinity and visit participating establishment. First Stop in our itinerary is: BBQ Chicken and Beer.

Spacious with around 10 tables with seating capacity of 4 to 6 each table. It is a good place for those who just want to chill. 

They are known of course with their Korean Styled Chicken -- Best Seller is the Paris Chicken. A dish consist of 8 pieces of a bit tad spicy chicken wings with cabbage on the side.

While waiting they also have a complimentary deep fried pasta that you can munch on. As born-again Christian, we don't drink beer so as an alternative we had lemon ice tea which was deli! Not your galing sa sari-sari store ice tea. Price ranges from Php 200-400 per dish. 

Catch more photos soon....

The last time I joined them in worship was back in 2008 where I was just starting my walk as a Christian and was attending a small church back in our hometown and it really made a marked in my life.

I grew up with Jollibee and being a busy office employee, you can't help but include going to fast food chains in your "diet" at least once a week. So it makes a whole lot of sense to avail Happy Plus Card.

Happy Plus Card

It is a reloadable card that you can use to pay up your orders not only in Jollibee but as well as to other JFC Group food chains like Chowking, Red Ribbon and Greenwich.

I particularly availed mine at Chowking El Molito in Alabang. I just paid Php 100 to get the Happy Plus Membership Kit at the counter and loaded another Php 100 to pay off my lunch order.

Upon returning to my desk at the office, I also registered my card in their website to earn more raffle points and monitor my Happy Plus Card account. Here is a video for more details.

After trying out juicing, I can totally feel the difference in my body. I was refreshed, had more energy and haven't been sick for a month now. I realized that going natural will do my body a whole lot of good. Don't get me wrong, I still want my medium Mcdo Cheeseburger Meal once in a while but generally I want to change my lifestyle and infuse more natural elements in my living. Perhaps, not too quickly but at least little by little.

Had a very hectic week at work prior to our vacation so we decided to chill for a while at Alabang Town Center and pass by Taters store at the cinema area.

I bought a White Cheddar Minor League Popcorn to munch on and Dard, the staff at the counter, offered for me to pick a raffle stub from the fishing bowl for some instant prize. He was as surprised as I am when I showed him that I picked out a stub with "FREE Chunky Hotdog".

Dard explain that Taters Philippines is actually celebrating their 20th Anniversary and to give thanks to loyal customers you can get a chance to get some freebie like I did. So happy anniversary guys and keep popping those corns!
Around Chinese New Year last January, I had a few moolah to spare so I availed the reloadable Starbucks Card. One of my officemate has one and explained the advantage of paying via prepaid SB Card instead of cash. She also mentioned that I will get 1 free drink just by registering the card online.

Since hubby's birthday was coming up during the time of registration, I strategically registered it under his name so we could get the birthday sweet treat soon rather than waiting for mine which is way at end of the year. The original plan was to avail it at the day of his birthday while we were in Boracay but unfortunately that did not push through. But good thing we could avail the freebie while it is still his birthday month.

Lugi nga lang kase 28 days ang Feb and we got very busy after returning from our vacation. But we tried squeezing in a quick rendenvous at Starbucks Alabang Town Center a day before the month of March began. Yes, success!!! The birthday boy opted for a blue berry cheesecake as his free pastry and shared it with me...Yum!

Park N' Fly is the first of its kind and only service in the Philippines wherein customers can leave their vehicles on a daily, weekly or monthly basis either for short-term or long-term parking at very reasonable rates.

The first time we tried to avail Park N' Fly's parking and shuttle service was last December 2013 when we went to Hong Kong-Macau. Hubby, who was in-charge of our transportation and keeping Jarvis The Car safe while we were away, was quite satisfied with their service and no fuzz transaction.

Since our flights for Boracay are scheduled during off peak hours 6:50am MNL-KLO and 10:40pm KLO-MNL, all the more he decided to avail Park N' Fly's service for the second time around. Coming from Cavite via Coastal Road we turned right in MIA Road and head towards the next corner. You won't miss their big building signage right behind PTT Gas Station.

The minimum rate of P340.00 (plus VAT) for the first 24 hours, and then a rate of P14.17 (plus VAT) for each hour after that. For the purpose of rate calculations, a fraction of an hour is considered to be a full hour.

Car owners need to check the car's condition and whatever it is inside your car prior to check-in. After the paper work is done, an attendant will bring your car to the parking building while you stay at the waiting area. Yeap, you read it right. You just give them the key and they will be the one to find a free spot for your car. Once done, you will be ushered to the shuttle van that will bring you to your terminal. Well, the risk is that you really do have to trust them since you won't be accompanying them anymore to the parking process itself. 

So a word of caution, make sure you give your keys to the authorized personnel.

Upon return from your terminal, just give them a ring and inform which terminal your airplane landed and they will pick you up to bring you back to the Park N' Fly building. After clearance, they hand-over your keys back to you. The 3-day stay of Jarvis in their facilities cost us a little over Php 1,000.
