PTB Meetup: 3 Rounds

Almost always, everytime I go out for a meet-up, meeting or a gimik and I have my Canon Ixus with me, I end up taking pictures of the food rather than the people who attended. :D

Thus, most of the pictures I took (Figaro Cafe along Emerald Avenue in Ortigas) were of the pastries and cakes.

More pictures from Rain here. The cakes and pastries were delicious. That’s all I can remember. :D

For a summary of what we talked about, check out me recent post at Pinoy.Tech.Blog.

Yellowcab Pizza

Yellow Cab just recently opened a two-storey pizza store at Eastwood, Libis. It’s one of the nicer places to hang out since half of their second floor is open with a wide area for tables and tents.

One of my officemates treated me last Friday for a bite of Yellow Cab’s New York Special. She’s one of the newer ones in the office that I got a little acquainted with.

Anyway, I luckily have my Canon Ixus 30 with me so i took a couple of shots.

Their pepper flakes are one of the best there is, coupled with the nice aroma of the oils, you’ll always want to grab another one even if you’re full. :D (IMHO, Yellow Cab is much better than Shakey’s and Pizza Hut.)

I was showing all the pictures I got using my Canon Ixus around the office and all of a sudden, 3 of my colleagues also bought the same exact model that I had. Spent most of the afternoons taking pictures with them and teaching them the basics.

You like Jap food?

Went to host a party last week-end at the Valle Verde for our company mid-year celebration. Most of the food served were Japanese cuisine (read: raw). Good thing I was able to grab dinner before hitting the party. I took solace in taking them pictures though:



Looks like I’m becoming the team’s official photographer. Taken using my Canon Ixus 30 (3.2MP). More pictures.

PhotoBlog Update

Many thanks to Markku for releasing beta 2 of iPap .9. I have now updated the Photo Gallery and what it needs now is a simple commenting system (of which Markku promised with the official release of iPap 1.0 :D).

New galleries have been uploaded as well. Picture above was taken at OJ’s in Libis.

Chicken Inasal

A pride of the Illonggo delicacy, the inasal nga manok (grilled chicken) is an all-time favorite.


The pecho (thigh) is the only chicken part I really enjoyed eating but most people prefer the paa (leg) because it is juicier. Chicken inasal is best enjoyed with sinamak, aged palm vinegar with ginger, onion, garlic, and lots of sili.

The closest one can get a bite of it here in Manila is with Bacolod Chicken Inasal which has at leats 8 branches spread across the metro. Don’t forget to ask for chicken oil as well!

Gonuts Donuts


Gonuts Donuts opens shop at Eastwood City and we were one of the first few people to line up and have a taste. Was a bit curious why there weren’t really a lot of people lining up. Maybe they did earlier that day and we just came right after lunch. We only knew about it because we bumped into some people bringing home a box or two. I got half a dozen for me and before office hours were over, all of them were gone. :D
