Bento making with Lex N Go Silicone Collapsible Boxes!

I participated in another bento making workshop a couple of weeks ago. It was a lazy Saturday afternoon and my out-of-town trip got cancelled so I figured I'd do something productive. I attended a Bento Mommas workshop sponsored by Cheez Whiz last December and it was pretty fun so here I was for another round!

Backyard Kitchen and Brew UP Town Center Review

My younger brother treated us to lunch last Sunday at Backyard Kitchen and Brew in UP Town Center. It was his 27th birthday and I was really surprised because it was the first time he treated all of us lol!

Inside Backyard Kitchen and Brew UP Town Center
Anyhow it was our first time at Backyard Kitchen and Brew in UP Town Center. It was high noon it was kind of dim inside. There's this rustic vibe, I guess it's all the wooden furniture and trimmings.

Each table has its own set of plates, utensils, and napkins.

Skillet Fries (P355)
We ordered Skillet Fries for sharing. It's literally a skillet full of fries topped with cheese sauce, pulled pork, BBQ sauce, jalapeno, and sour cream. While I liked the flavor profile, the fries were swimming in oil and super soggy. I couldn't eat more than a few pieces because it was so cloying.

Pulled Pork Belly Rice (P255)
I ordered Pulled Pork Belly Rice as my main course. It came in a big but shallow wooden bowl. My mistake, it was almost the same as the Skillet Fries in terms of flavor minus the cheese. Well I ordered this first and my brother ordered the Skillet Fries afterwards. Anyhow garlic rice is topped with fried egg and pulled pork with BBQ sauce, jalapeno, and sour cream. I thought it was pretty good and I finished it, just too similar to the Skillet Fries in terms of taste.

Cherie Gil and Celia Rodriguez for Acer Premium!

I love Cherie Gil. I was pretty young when I watched "Bituin Walang Ningning" when she delivered her famous line "You're nothing but a second rate trying hard copycat." OMG. I remember it so clearly.

Anyhow, premiere tech brand Acer recently launched its #PowerLook campaign featuring two Philippine screen legends: Celia Rodriguez and Cherie Gil. These ladies are so fierce they can get anything they want with a look. In Tagalog, nakukuha sa tingin.

I was so lucky to have been able to witness the launch of these two exceptional women as Acer's newest brand ambassadors last night at Salon De Ning. Their combined presence was so powerful I could not help but be awed.

I'm a fan! I can only hope that I can age as gracefully as these beautiful ladies do! I'm so impressed by this Acer campaign. Usually you'd get young people jumping around as tech endorsers but wow, when Acer says Premium, they mean it! They exude pure power and class. The entire room was awed the moment they walked in.
