Food Trip & Bastille Day: VIKINGS & DELSEY

So I finally decided to stop hibernating and actually come out of the shell I've been hiding in. I had a free day last week, so I texted my GF Ana if we could do events hopping. Are you proud of me Kelly Medina? Hahaha. Anyway, our first stop was Vikings in Mega Fashion Hall. Along with a few bloggers, we had first dibs on their latest offering. No need to fly to Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia na, Vikings is bringing your favorite Southeast Asian Streetfood to you every weekend this whole month of August. I am not a professional food reviewer, all I could tell you is what the food are made of and if I liked it or not. I promise to give an honest review, though! Lagi naman eh hehe. Photos!

Kerabu Sotong Kering -- composed of green mango, cucumber, red pepper, cuttlefish. Like the balance of sweetness and sourness. 

 Beef & Chicken Satay - i just love the peanut sauce with it! One of my favorite Asian food. 

 Roti & Beef Curry - this I finished! Super tasty. Reminds me of curry buns I often feast on in Singapore. The ripe mango is refreshing to the palette too. 

 Chicken Rice, Beef Rendang, Vegetable Biryani - I'm not a fan of Hainanese chicken but this I like! It's not "malansa" and it tastes perfect. The Beef Rendang & Biryani I liked too!

   The famous Bak Kut Teh soup! Pork ribs in spices & herbal soup. My first time to try it! Not my favorite soup, it has this tinge to it 'coz of the herbs, but a nice bowl would be nice this rainy day!:)

Singaporean Fish Curry - I also liked this one! It's like tilapia (or kasi tilapia talaga siya) that's cooked in a sweet & sour sauce:) Think pinakbet but a little sweeter. Hehe. 

Chili Oyster Crab -  tastes just like the chili crab I ate in Singapore! Crab in garlic-y sweet & chili sauce. Yum. 

Hokkien Mee - similar to Pad Thai but Pad Thai is more sour and tasty. 

Chef showing us what spices they used on some of the dishes.

Forgot the others but I see garlic and pepper!

our table hihi

Pineapple Tart - similar to cream puff but filled instead of cream, it has pineapple filling. Topped with powdered sugar and served with fruits. Yum.

 Cendol (Malaysia's version of Halo-Halo!) Love this....

The amazing chefs of Vikings!

 Happy tummies! Hehe.

Later that night, Ana and I went to DELSEY Philippines' first Fete Dela France celebration in Greenbelt 3!:) In partnership with the French Embassy & HOLA Magazine, the French brand honored Bastille day with a special program full of music, wine, an exclusive sale event & introduction of their new brand innovations. 

Brand history: DELSEY was founded in 1946 by Emile Delahaye & Andre & Walter Synheaves. They first manufactured leather cases for cameras. They become really popular in 1970, when they first offered their first line of rigid luggage called Delsey Airstyle.  The rest they say is history! For years, they've been offering more innovative, functional, lightweight products that makes travelling easier and convenient. Delsey perfectly fuses form & function with French flair. :) 

 The talented Panggo band who played jazz music!:) Clazzzz.

 Welcoming remarks by Primer Group of Companies' AVP, Darwin Banez

 Guest of honor, French Ambassador, Gilles Garachon

 A toast for France-Philippines partnership & Delsey too...


 Token of appreciation for the French Ambassador! Love the luggage bag!

I also won a Delsey backpack! Thank you!:)

Excited for DELSEY's new collection this year! They will be selling luggages that have built-in weight indicators. I need this in my life. 

The hard case luggage bag above is called Honore. It's sleek, functional, stylish, luxurious, innovative. The luggage of your dreams...or my dreams. Haha. I shall save for this. :)

Thank you Delsey for my own backpack and travel pack! Excited to use these on my next adventure!:)

Sweet As Mint

The rainy season is here, but it still feels like summer sometimes. I've been wearing the last few summer pieces that I have and is slowly transitioning to sweaters and layers. I am still cautious when I pile on clothes though because our weather's a little tricky. It would be raining cats & dogs in the morning, then sudden heatwave in the afternoon or vise versa. Define bipolar. Haha. Here are overdue outfit photos from our last summer paandars! Taken at Punta Del Este, Mindoro during our family vacay.

 Mint dress, Cotton On hat, Axis watch, Wear Vintage heart sunnies, Payless sneakers

My brother-in-law, Miles, wearing a tanktop from Mint!:)

This dress is a winner in so many levels. Love the print, cut, fit, style, color. Such a statement piece!:) Statement din my heart shaped sunglasses from Wear Vintage. So kyoooots. I want this in all other colors. Yup, it's available in other shades too. Moving on....

Here's Nico boy's outfit naman! He's always pacute but really camera shy (weh haha), hence all that awkwardness. Lol. Thanks for doing this! :p

Mint palm tree buttondown shirt, Avon sunglasses, Any any lang shorts, Havaianas slippers

I would definitely wear this shirt! I'll style this in some other way and will post it here. Soon!:)

MINT is still on sale!!! So go avail na!:) They have lots of nice pieces that you'd surely love. I'm obsessed with their men's polos and jackets! I've always been a fan of their eyewear too. As in pre-blogger days pa. I love how the brand has evolved and still evolving, offering something for everyone. Go check out their stores now!:)

The Bright Side

Finally, after 5 days, this post is finally out of my drafts folder na! Was supposed to put this up last Thursday but got caught up (again) with work and I can't seem to fight the urge to sleep these past few days. Signs of aging na ata haha. Huhubels. I hope you're all safe (and dry haha, hi Ana!) from the recent typhoon that hit the country. Super hassle ni Glenda girl. I know there are still places that experience power outages, I hope everything goes back to normal soon. I spent those 2 crucial days holed up in my apartment, fixing things, and bonding with my neighbors, childhood friends and cousins AKA the whole barangay. Lol. We passed time by playing Hide & Seek (shempre in the dark) and raided the newly opened Family Mart near our place! It's pretty amazing how Filipinos make the most out of every situation noh? Always optimistic. Hehe. I just hate how it ruined my work schedule. Last Thursday, I had to rush pullouts from Makati to Alabang to Paranaque and then back to Cubao. I literally live inside the car na. I should start storing food inside (coz I seldom have time to stop and eat) and arinola. Hahaha. At least I was finally able to visit the H&M showroom last Wednesday. So happy! Lakas maka legit stylist their showroom! Soooo New York, LA or Paris. Thanks Dan and Nikki for accommodating us...and for the coffee. :) Here's an OOTD from weeks ago and some photos!

DETAILS top & shorts, NAVA hat, FLY SHADES sunnies, SM ACCESSORIES belt, ANNE KLEIN borrowed from the mudra bag, SILVERWORKS Muse collection bracelet, PROMOD heels

Love this wrap top from Details! So classy, vintagey and chic. I love how I can dress it up or down anytime. Also in love with this white high waist shorts. I think everyone should have one or five of this in their closet. It's definitely on my "staples" list. What do you think of my modern 60s look?:) Thanks to my sister for my outfit photos! Heehee.

Here are photos from my H&M visit + pullout session with my bessy Jear! So happy to have shared this experience with him. Missed him so much!:)
