ZUMBA: Ayala Fairview Terraces Free Zumba!

Clockwise: The zumba regulars; my sister; me; my cousin and niece!

Its such a delight when malls give out to their community. Like Ayala Malls, specifically Fairview Terraces, they organized zumba classes every weekday morning (good thing we have flexible schedules) this month.

After a weekend of family food galore and vegging-out in front of the telly, its just right to make an effort to exercise. And exercise or any healthy activity is more fun with the family so we made it a regular date!

In my opinion, Zumba is a whole body cardio work out ‘masked’ in a fun way thru music and of course the enthusiastic mood of the participants. I mean really, you’ll just realize you’re sweating from head to foot at the end of each level but with a smile on your face.

So for an effective, fun and memorable work out, do it with your family!


BIDA FILIPINO KITCHEN: Bagnet Chips is bida sa sarap!

Bida’s Bagnet Chips, plain rice, Sampaloc Iced Tea and Guava Lime Shake
I’ve been meaning to try out Bida Filipino Kitchen since it opened at Ayala Fairview Terraces last December 2014. My sister and I dropped by the mall for errands and finally squeezed in the chance to try out a few from their menu.
The first, unanimous choice is their Bagnet Chips of course! Its thinly sliced (how do they do it?), crispy but not oily goodness served with a refreshing salsa that you’ll ask for a cup or two of rice!¬†If they sell these in bags – here, take my money!

We also had their Sampaloc Iced Tea which is has the right balance of sourness and their Guava Lime Shake, which is a new one for me.
I highly recommend to try it out but don’t blame me if you get hooked and crave for Bagnet Chips in the middle of the night!

With Sabor Latino’s music in the background, we went around and had awesome food finds: Chef Florabel’s produts, organic produce, Bida Filipino Kitchen’s fare, etc.

KANZHU Hand-pulled Noodles: Cold Appetizers!

Kanzhu’s 5-in-1 Appetizer Sampler

Ever had one of those days when you’re just craving for a certain taste? Like you want to have a bite of something? Well, while my sister and I were at Ayala Fairview Terraces, we spotted Kanzhu!

We visit their branch along Timog avenue for their noodles, while watching how the noodles are made by their skilled food staff. But this certain day, aside from noodles, a particular set has the flavors that I have been craving for – their Cold 5-in-1 Appetizer!

Its the usual appetizer at Asian (mostly Chinese) restaurants consisting of sliced Century egg, seaweeds, etc. Their customary fish skin appetizer in my opinion, they should sell them out as chips!

Sipped a teapot of tea and cravings satisfied without eating too much, we left with big smiles!

FANTASIA CAFE: A Dream of Venice

Our newest favorite restaurant – FANTASIA CAFE!
FANTASIA CAFE has masks that you can ‘borrow’ to take photos with!
FANTASIA CAFE’s Chicken Salad
FANTASIA CAFE’s Crispy Pork with Rice
FANTASIA CAFE also has sandwiches which are served with a side of salad.
Chocolate Pancakes is served with a side of chocolate ice cream at FANTASIA CAFE.
Blueberry Crepe is served with a side of ice cream too at FANTASIA CAFE.
You can ‘borrow’ these Venetian-inspired masks for photo-ops or selfies!
Its no surprise why we love FANTASIA CAFE, because we love donning masks and costumes during special occasions.
I like the Venetian-inspired interiors of FANTASIA CAFE in terms of color motif and decors but with a modern flare.
