Oh My Gulay!

Veggies! So who among us get excited when we hear about veggies? Ugh~ Not me, honestly. I thought veggie dishes are bland and not delicious. But you know, our Baguio sojourn changed me in a lot of ways... and that includes converting me into a vegetable advocate. 

One of the travel blogs recommended Oh My Gulay as a place to eat. My family and I went out to look for it in Session Road. It turns out that it is not easily seen. Luckily, we asked one of the locals and she knew where it is. Yay! Oh My Gulay is located at the Penthouse of La Azotea Bldg along the stretch of Session Road. 

At the entrance, unique wooden sculptures greet the guests by the door.

Going up the stairs are more sculptures and creative graffiti. And inside the restaurant is like a different world! Plants and paintings.. and water... and bridges. This place is like art museum, too!

I can't believe we're in a restaurant. And true to the name, Oh My Gulay serves nothing but veggies. Oh~ They have creative names, too. Heehee~


The creativity of the artists are also reflected on the menu.

My family and I ordered three dishes which were the bestsellers according to the waitress. While waiting, we enjoyed the city night skyline. This penthouse is just the perfect place to be!

After some time, our dinner arrived. First up is Bandilang Pula. It's so called because of the red rice, I guess. The ingredients include veggies in season with tofu, egg omelette, and sesame seeds. Now this! Crispy veggies full of flavor you won't taste anywhere else in the metropolis.

Next is Pancit Gulay ni Pepe. This, too, is exquisite. The noodles are, you know... not the instant kind. You can taste it's freshness which goes well with the veggies. Ours had young corn and broccoli.

Third on the list is a version of the Italian pasta Puttanesca. Called "Anak ng Putanesca", it clearly stands out among the other creative names. Don't you agree? Hahaha~ This is my personal favorite. Have you ever eaten a dish where the tomatoes burst in your mouth while the cheese complements it? Yummy!

The dishes at Oh My Gulay are outstandingly delicious and unforgettable. Lots of farms are near Baguio, so that explains why you get the freshest of ingredients. I thought chefs on TV were not serious when they reiterate that the freshness should be of utmost importance. I believe them now. Experiencing the crispiness and the burst of flavor made me a firm believer that veggies can be delicious, too! 

Oh My Gulay is a nice place in Baguio to eat. And surely, you will get a taste of what the highlands' flavors are like. Not only that, you will get to see the talents of the artists there, too. Oh My Gulay is definitely both a feast for the eyes and for the stomach!

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
