#urmajestysiresmoviereviews Watched 'My 2 Mommies', opening day, 1st hour screening; mejo naputol ang emosyon kasi may kinailangang saguting mga (work) messages pero kebs that's beside the point lols! O heto na and in no particular order ang reaction/observation ko: 1. Naluha ako – no shame at bato na lang ang hindi maantig; kung bakit? Aba eh 'di manuod kayo kaloka!; 2. Nailatag ang background ng characters fluidly sans the gasgas nang clichés; Ano ang cliché? I-Google mo na lang; 3. Ms. Maricel Soriano is a delight and portrayed being your overprotective Tita without hard-selling accessories, nuances and activities – THE Diamond Star shines with little or no effort pak!; 4. What can I say about Solenn? The ultimate IT-girl na kaya gawin lahat eh ano pa nga ba 'di nya kaya?! Hands down magaling din sya magdrama! Yung mata pa lang may emosyon na, yung pahulog ang luha pero 'di bumabagasak, yung magandang umiyak (at walang uhog); kaya sana magkateleserye or movie sya na super drama! Also, ang ganda niya kahit 'no makeup look' with matching freckles at nakapantulog?!; 5. JoEm's character is not your typical "partner" so to speak; and mind you, there truly exists co-equal, educated & accomplished individuals and not just the usual '"jowa ng beki na mahilig sa rubber shoes" ha!; 6. Jason (the husband of Solenn) natuwa, nagalit at naawa ako in a good way; that sometimes foreigners are more understanding of unconventional setups than Filipinos; 7. Tristan (the son) very millennial acting, entertaining and siguro 'di lang kinailangan pero may mapipiga pang emosyon; 8. The yaya, work assistant, relatives & beki friends natuwa ako kasi 'di sila overacting and they were given witty but meaningful nuggets na mapapaisip ka; 9. Paolo B. ano pa nga ba ang masasabi ko? Siguro super-relate sya sa role niya that you can see it in his eyes (naks!); also liked it na they diverted his wardrobe, house decors and nuances/activities from the usual flamboyant portrayal of bekis – again, ito yung co-equal, educated and accomplished individuals na masasabing pwedeng beki role model. All in all, panuorin ninyo Graded A ito! Saludo ako sayo Direk Eric Quizon! #my2mommies

Was supposed to visit the opening of Burrrap_Burrito Masarap at Love Craft Food Park during the latter’s slated opening but it being a December, schedule and traffic was really crazy! Anyways, visited a couple of weeks ago after errands with my cousin. We traversed E. Rodriguez looking for the food park (don’t just rely on the maps online) and almost missed the place (its the building beside the BLTB bus terminal). Here’s what we tried!
Chicken Inasal Quesadilla – it might look like your regular quesadilla but this version first off, the tortilla is not burnt but warmed just right; second the ingredients do not overpower each other; and third, their sauces taste fresh and also flavorful. This one goes to my comfort food list, being its great for those lazy to cook days, rainy days, movie marathon days or simply I’m craving for Mexican food days!
Echos Nachos – straight up their version is one of my favorites (walang echos ‘yan!). For me what sets it apart is that their tortilla chips are very light and crunchy to the bite, its not yellow like most tortilla chips and some are curled in a way you can scoop the ingredients in for a full bite. Couple that with the generous medley of cheese, olives, tomatoes (sans onions, we opted it out) and ground beef …heaven! Oh, their serving is good for 3-4 persons also!
