A Rainy Manila Adventure

After a crazy week at work, I finally got to catch up with my friends. Mai and I accompanied Ryan in Manila, specifically in Quiapo. Quiapo as I discovered is also a place full of affordable yet chic and cute accessories. Look at my cute finds:





I'm so in love with these accessories. Actually saw Camille Co sporting these accessories. Though I didn't like  walking in the puddled streets, shopping for these accessories lifted my mood. These accessories are only Php40! 

Also went to Robinson's Place, Manila. It's been awhile since I last went there. I mean really go there to look around. Before we window shopped, I begged them to find a place to sit down since my feet were really aching already - been standing a lot longer since Wednesday's event which I will blog about in a separate post. We settled on resting at Secret Recipes. 

Chocolate Indulgence


Carrot Cake


My friends have a sweet tooth like I do so they ordered cakes. These two are heavenly! Sweetness overload! 


Lasagna

Ryan's lasagna looked yummy. It tasted good as well. His only disappointment is that the fillings of this lasagna was only on top. Nothing in between. 

Chicken Cordon Bleu

I ordered Chicken Cordon Bleu. I love foods with lots of cheese in or on it. This is one very juicy chicken. I only wish there was more cheese in this. 

The staff at Secret Recipes were very accommodating to us. They even made sure we always had a glass full of water. And we even got a 30% discount voucher which we can use if we dine in at any Secret Recipes branch in the next two weeks. 


I forgot to take a photo of Ryan. Haha. That's my good friend, Mai smiling for the camera. 



And here is me. I made an effort to actually tie my hair and make it hold its place and I wore some make up too. It's not often you'd see me like this. But I figured I need to exert more effort on looking good just like Andrea did on Devil Wears Prada. My friends also say I should do so. 

It was a nice Manila adventure minus the rain and puddles of course. I seriously love weekend adventures. Next time, I'll blog about my long weekend adventure on the northside of town.
