The Old Spaghetti House

I’m not Italian but I LOVE Pasta, I guess many Filipinos like it and the most popular one is Spaghetti. I can still remember the joy and excitement it brings everytime my Mom cooks Spaghetti when I was a kid, I was like the happiest kid in town.What about you, do you feel the same way when you were a kid?

Now that I’m all grown up, my standards when it comes to spaghetti is not exactly the same when I was a little kid. I want my Pasta to be ”oh sooo” delicious with a little taste of spiciness, and when it comes to that, The Old Spaghetti House is my favorite.

The moment you enter the restaurant you will notice their Old School concept and their friendly staff will greet you with their warmest smile. (Siyempre may Service Charge eh! hehe).

The last time I visited The Old Spaghetti House was last week. Here’s some of the perfect and clear photos I’ve taken.

In all fairness she looks kind and pretty noh?!

Here’s what I ordered

Seafood Marinara (P195)

I asked the cook to add a little more spiciness into it and I liked it (try to put some Parmesan Cheese too!). It has Shrimp, Oyster, Clams and Green Mussels (Tahong). Deadmaru na lang sa Garlic Bread coz for me it’s useless. A Must Try is Gambasetti (P195).

Funnel Cake with cream (P100+)

It was good but not that amazing. Chaka ng designs noh?! I love the plate though, we used to have this kind of plate wayback (super bigat lang, sarap pakilo sa junk shop).

I also love their theme. The place is really cool and relaxing with the music they’re playing and the ambiance they have.  The Old Spaghetti house is a perfect treat for the Pasta Lovers and for everyone.

 Ceilings and Walls are made out of woods

They also have these unique pieces

I love the different hanging lamps on the ceiling for each table.

A perfect place for couples who wants to go on a date.

Huli kayo!!!! Hahaha

You can also celebrate your Birthday Party here.

So True!

They have branches and outlets for delivery. For all contact information like Phone Numbers, Locations, Facebook and Twitter click this ——>>>>> The Old Spaghetti House

Unpredictable Me

I went to SM Manila last week to buy adaptor plug in Ace Hardware. I was looking for a pink one but unfortunately I got the boring and plain white. Anyway, I suddenly found myself wandering and searching for a book in National Bookstore. I didn’t know what was I thinking but I was very eager to find any book to read.

Tweet Tweet

Tweet!

 3 people responded to my tweet and suggested books to read (deadmabelles lang!)

And this is what I got

"Pilates and Yoga Book"

PILATES YOGA by Judith Smith, Emily Kelly and Jonathan Monks

I’m not the type of person who is health conscious. I don’t exercise, I drink, I smoke and this book???? hahaha… But I am excited to read it and do Pilates and Yoga. I just hope I have a partner who will teach me the proper way to do all these stuff and most importantly, I hope I can find time for this thing. I know it’s possible coz Im unpredictable… (anong koneksyon..)

I’ll update you once I learn how to! Say YES to a Healthy Lifestyle! Char!

David Guetta – Turn Me On ft. Nicki Minaj


David Guetta never fails to amuse me with his music. Ever since he released his first album Just a Little More Love (2002) then Guetta Blaster (2004) and Pop Life (2007), I fell inlove and got addicted with his music. According to http://en.wikipedia.org “As of 2012, David Guetta is the world’s most popular DJ, claiming the #1 poll position of the DJ Mag 100 popularity poll” (PAK!). As for me, his a genius, an inspiration to aspiring DJ’s and musicians and a living legend.

Some of my favorite songs of him are  “Gettin’ Over You” (featuring Chris WillisFergie & LMFAO), “Sexy Bitch” (featuring Akon) and  Without You. As of the moment, I am sooo into his latest single Turn Me On from his fifth studio album Nothing but the Beat. This song features the most famous female rapper today (Oooppss! Sorry Lil’ Kim) Onika Tanya Maraj known by many as “Nicki Minaj” who was  named the 2011 Rising Star by Billboard.  Anyway, the song is cool I love the melody and the rhythm. I’ve been playing this song like hundred times in a day and I am really hoping and praying that David Guetta will also collaborate to the truly talented, my all time favorite singer Christina Aguilera (@TheRealXtina) it will be a Monster hit ! EPIC! I also read some articles and on Twitter that Guetta tried to reach out to Queen Aguilera about a possible collaboration (finger cross).

Things I love about the video:

  • The White Lips singing the 1st Stanza of the song. It reminds me of Xtina’s Lips in her album Bionic.
  • Minaj transformation into a perfect doll.
  • Other dolls who were amazed, shocked and jealous with Minaj transformation.
  • Minaj doing her magnificent rap while being surrounded by hot male dolls.
  • Guetta’s revelation that he is also a doll (a gorgeous one).

Here’s the official video of David Guetta – Turn Me On ft. Nicki Minaj

Here’s the lyrics:

[Nicki Minaj]
Docta docta, need you back home baby
Docta Docta, where you at?
Give me somethin’
I need your love
I need your love
I need your lovin’
You got that kind of medicine that keeps me comin’

My body needs a hero
Come and save me
Something tells me you know how to save me
I’ve been feeling weird (oh)
Oh, I need you to come and rescue me

[Chorus]
Oooooooooh!
Make me come alive
Come on turn me on
Touch me, save my life
Come on and turn me on
I’m too young to die
Come on and turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on

Make me come alive
Come on turn me on
Touch me, save my life
Come on and turn me on
I’m too young to die
Come on and turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on

[Nicki Minaj]
Oh you make it right
My temperature is super high
If I scream, if I cry
It’s only ’cause I feel alive

My body needs a hero
Come and save me
Something tells me you know how to save me
I’ve been feeling real low
Oh, I need you to come and rescue me

[Chorus]
Oooooooooh!
Make me come alive
Come on turn me on
Touch me, save my life
Come on and turn me on
I’m too young to die
Come on and turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on

Make me come alive
Come on turn me on
Touche me, save my life
Come on and turn me on
I’m too young to die
Come on and turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on

[Bridge]
You’ve got my life in the palm of your hands
Come and save me now
I know you can, I know you can

[Rap]
Don’t let me die young, I just want you to fatha’ at my young
I just want you to be my docta, we can get it crackin’ chiropractor, I, I, I, I know you can save me
And make me feel alive

[Chorus]
Make me come alive
Come on turn me on
Touch me, save my life
Come on and turn me on
I’m too young to die
Come on and turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on
Turn me on

Massage at Spada Wellness Center

Stressed, Tired and Exhausted? Then Massage or Spa is all you needed. Massage brings relaxation, comfort and happiness. It also promotes freshness and well being which I really love. They are everywhere, they’re all over the Metro! No matter where you at, you’ll see Spas and Wellness Centers in every corner, like in Malls.

Well, I’m not really addicted to Massage and Spa, I only go there if I’m stress or exhausted. I tried different kind of Massage but I guess they’re all the same. What matters to me is the Masseur (gorgeous one please. hehehe) and the Services (if you know what I mean).

The only Spas that I’ve been to, that I can remember of was when I went to Bacolod for a vacation. It is located at a hotel in the downtown area, I just forget the name. Anyway, I tried their Sauna, It was great because the room was made of Bamboos and they have this huge area that has burned charcoals (Pugon lang ang Peg!). The massage was good and the fee is reasonable.

I also tried Holistic Approach in SM Megamall.  Well, the only thing that I can remember is the front desk not being accommodating but the service was just fine.

 

Here comes Spada Wellness Center.

Wanna Try the SPADA Touch?!

 

Located along Taft Ave. near G.Puyat LRT Station. Spada is a Wellness Center for everybody. If you want privacy, relaxation and a sensual massage, then you might wanna try them.

I’ve been to Spada twice. They offered a lot of “Services”, the popular ones are the FHM/For Him Massage and the Lingam Massage (500+). The massage is good for an hour or so and they played sweet, soft and mellow instrumental music on the background. The SPAda is a small Wellness Center, especially the receiving area. Once you go inside, obviously its dark but its somewhat different. I’m talking about the bed because its not the typical elevated bed that you’ll see in other Spas. The bed is just on the floor with curtains on each side and a locker without a key (I’m wondering why?!).  The bathroom is ordinary but clean, though you just need to go to the 2nd floor if you wanna pee or something. It’s relaxing and it’s very quiet unlike in other Spas. Try it!

In all fairness, the Masseurs are presentable and most of them are good looking. They are very kind, friendly and accommodating. They will treat you like a King well, in my case a “Queen”.  They are well equipped and trained and the Services is really Amazing! Don’t have a car? Don’t worry because they will look and hailed a Cab for you.

One thing I don’t like is the location. It is situated along Taft Ave., which is somewhat polluted in the morning and when the night comes it’s a bit scary because it’s kinda dark and the street lamps are scanty. They don’t have Security Guard as well, so Hello to holdapers. I hope they will hire a Security Guard for the customer safety and if ever they will, I will surely be back and bring my friends over.

 

They also have branches in Las Pinas and Cubao, Quezon City.

Contact Nos:
254–4605 – Spada Taft
873–8371 – Spada Las Piñas

Dark Shadows (Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Eva Green)

I’ve been very busy (as always) this past few days but I think its not too late to update my entry and give my views and opinions about Johnny Depp’s latest movie Dark Shadows.  Anyway, it is still showing in the Philippines.

Dark Shadow is a horror-comedy film directed by Tim Burton. The casting is star-studded with A-Listers like Johnny Depp. Michelle Pfeiffer and the gorgeous Eva Green. Oh, I almost forgot, part of the castings are Helena Bonham CarterJackie Earle HaleyJonny Lee MillerChloë Grace Moretz and Bella Heathcote. Here’s the Dark Shadows official poster.

Dark Shadows Official Poster 2012

So Cliff wanted to watch a movie and we were kinda having a hard time on what movie to watch. Our only option was Dark Shadows by  Johnny Depp (HOT!) vs The Lucky One by Zac Efron (HOTTER!). Obviously, we decided Dark Shadows a film by Tim Burton. Cliff treated me the movie (Thanks Buddy!), then we just bought a Sumo Red Ice Tea from Tokyo Tokyo. Upper Seats were full and few people seating on the lower box. I guess the movie bombed on the Box Office here in the Philippines. Here’s my fair reviews about the film.

Dark Shadows – with it’s title I’m sure most of you will think that, it’s a scary, horror movie, goosebumps with all the screaming and stuff. Unfortunately, I didn’t experience any of that. It’s a movie that should be put behind the SHADOWS. I would not say I hate it, it is a fine (yawn) movie. The movie didn’t scare me at all and the comedy is just broad and ordinary, though there were few people who were laughing at the cinema.  Johnny Depp as  Barnabas Collins was a vampire who was cursed by a witch name  Angelique Bouchard played by Eva Green. Johnny Depp was simply amazing. He is such a versatile actor, he can be a Pirate a Killer a Vampire, he can be whoever he wants, any roles he plays he will give justice to it. Good thing it’s Johnny Depp or the movie would really be suck!

Barnabas Collins

Hypnotizing; one of Mr Depp’s power in the movie.

Why so serious? Don’t like the room and the carpet?

Depp as the Funniest and the Coolest Vampire ever?!

I also Love Eva Green. Not only she is powerful in this movie, but she is Gorgeous and she played her role really well.

I didn’t know that a Witch and a Vampire can make love.

The Hottest Witch

Michelle Pfeiffer portrayed her role well. She looks so classy and elegant in this movie.

Michelle Pfeiffer as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard

Wonder what happened after  Johnny Depp and Eva Green made love?

A very powerful and sensual love scene.

The Collins Family

Are they really cursed? What a beautiful family!

The manor is really amusing.

Bonggels

Party Time!!!

My Manor

Overall, I dont like the movie. The story, the comedy and the action scenes are pretty normal. It could’ve been a better movie, if they put more actions and thrill to it. It’s a good thing that Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer especially Eva Green did really well, or else this is a waste behind the Shadows! Just save your money and just download it online. Good thing a friend paid for my movie ticket.

So, what do you think of the movie? Leave a comment.

Dead Rat, Jatujak (My Rest Day) Pt. 1

Rest Day or Day Off is a day when we are not required to work our ass off.  All employees and hard workers are looking forward to their “Rest Days” , who’s not??? , some will plan it ahead of time and everyone deserves to have an amazing Rest Day.  Here’s what happened on “My Rest Day”. Unplanned, Unexpected, and oh so Spontaneous!

Friday, May 11, 2012, My Rest Day. I woke up at around 9 AM, had breakfast and did the laundry (Yes, I do my own laundry and I’m proud of it!). It was just the usual and typical Rest Day for me. Suddenly, a horrifying, terrifying near to death experience came up…

DEAD RAT

I decided to take a bath while doing my laundry because it was really hot. The moment I came out of the bathroom (Siyempre Freshness!), I heard My Aunt and Cousin screaming to death. I knew by then what was happening, I sensed it right away. They saw a Huge Dead Rat under the sofa chair in our living room. I can see how terrified and disgusted they were. Anyway,  My Aunt, wants me to take that HUGE Dead Rat and dispose it. I was like thinking, “they are both Nurses, isn’t it just normal for them to see  dead creatures, or they might be tripping, joking or something”, but they were Bloody SERIOUS. I had no choice but to obey my Aunt, she’s been very kind, understanding and patient with me. She never asked me much of  a favor, especially any of the household chore (Prinsesa lang?!). So, I had to be strong, calm and focus. It took me a couple of minutes to dispose that fucking rat and it really stinks. After I completed the task I felt relieve and somewhat proud, I was like the Wonderwoman OR  Superman of the day. I even Tweeted the incident and post it on My Facebook Account.

KYOHO means (a Gay Lingo) means Mabaho, Bad Smell, Stinky.

JATUJAK

The next highlight of “My Rest Day” —> I went to Medical Plaza in Ortigas, to visit my Dentist. Unfortunately, I wasnt able to meet her because I was late, I think I arrived at around 6pm. I was really dissapointed, and since I was starving I went to SM Megamall and went straight to Jatujak (Thai Restaurant), one of my favorite restaurant. I ignored all the Sales and Shops because I was soo hungry! Deadmaru muna akez sa mga Sales and I intended to avoid Window Shoppping (mahirap na! haha).

I read somewhere that Jatujak is the largest weekend market in Bangkok and in the world – a haven for bargain hunters and Thai food lovers. According to WikipediaChatuchak (or JatujakThai: จตุจักร) weekend market in Bangkok is the largest market in Thailand. WHATEVER! hehe

Anyway, I love the foods in Jatujak Thai Restaurant and how they prepare it. It doesnt look like a high end resto (heads up for the feeling Conos and Sosyals. hehe), but I believe it shouldn’t be the case or the basis for you guys to enjoy your Rest Day, what important is how delicious their food is. I love the ambience of their Resto, it’s very simple and laid back, very comfortable and you will feel like you are really in Thailand (though I’ve never been there). The waiters uniform is a FAIL, very Thai! I dont like it, but its okay. The waiters naman are kind and very accommodating. Here’s what I ordered:

Bagoong Rice and Thai Pad Mix

Bagoong Rice and Thai Pad Mix (Super Spicy Please)

Forgive me with the photo, Im a bad photographer and my Blackberry Camera Phone Sucks, that is why I did’nt take a lot of pictures.

Here’s a proper picture of what I ordered.

Bagoong Rice (P165)

Bagoong Rice – My All Time Favorite! It has chopped Mangoes, Cucumber, Eggs and Beef on the side. I think before, If Im not mistaken, they used to have Dilis and Shrimps as part of the Toppings. Dunno what happened?!

Pad Thai Mix (P265)

The reason why its called Pad Thai Mix, its because it has a combination of “Mix”of Chicken and Shrimp. You can choose either Pad Thai Chicken or Pad Thai Shrimp. I just thought to my self while ordering, “Why Choose, If I can have them both”.

Thai Iced Tea (P100+)

At first I didnt like the taste and the smell of this Tea. I was like “Damn It! Sayang! I should’ve ordered Service Water instead!” But, when you started eating your  spicy and delicious meal, you’ll enjoy it. Thai Iced Tea compliments the spiciness and the taste of the Bagoong Rice. Try It!

You also have an option if you like your meal to be Super Spicy– to Medium or just the Normal Taste.

All the servings and meals are good for 2-3 persons. Well, as always di ko naubos, so nag take-out ako and just gave it to a friend.
