Soderno

Squeezing this quick post before I start reading again. It’s been hard to find the time to update my blog and Lookbook account ever since this semester started. We were bombarded by piles of readings – as in literally!  Spent quite a fortune already for photocopying cases just for one class. Sigh. All-nighters are becoming a habit too. It’s one of those times that I can really say with conviction that twenty-four hours a day isn’t really enough.

Nevertheless, I still made time to go to Soderno’s opening! (nice segue ba? Haha!) Finally, a food slash lifestyle market in the south! It’s located at the Molito complex, bounded by Madrigal Avenue, Commerce Avenue and Alabang-Zapote Road. Soderno is a brainchild of the same group of people behind the highly-successful Mercato Centrale at the Bonifacio Global City and the soon-to-be-opened Distrito in Makati.

The place was packed when we got there. After all, it’s their opening night. The food stalls are quite familiar since most of them are almost the same ones located in Mercato, but the whole area of Soderno is smaller. There are a few new and nice additions though. Finding tables and chairs for dining is not an easy task. Parking is a bit of a problem too. Hopefully they can improve on these aspects in the weeks to come. Still, Soderno is a welcome addition to the quaint atmosphere of Alabang.

Credits to my friend Chesca for the photos below. She used her new SLR. Woot!

Went with some of my high school friends. 🙂

Burrito for me!

Korean and Latina? LOL

Bella Swan and Edward Cullen? HAHA

Perhaps my most dignified photo of the night! Still looked stressed though!

The Soderno at Molito is open every weekends: the Lifestyle Market is every Saturday, from 7AM – 4PM; the Organic Market is every Sunday, 7AM – 4PM; and the Night Market runs every Friday and Saturday from 6PM – 3AM.

Happy weekend food-triping, fellow south people! 🙂

Birthday Week

Yeah, I turned 21. And so far, I’ve been using my birthday week to justify all the pigging out these past days. I think I’ve gained 21 lbs so far. 😦 LOL. You want proof?

The day after I celebrated my birthday at Kyss, there was a dinner party at home with family and relatives. It was actually a joint celebration for me and my sister. She’ll have her Sweet 16th on the 30th. Hahaha. My cousin also shares the same birthday with me.

My sister and I made our lola do the thumbs up! Cuuute!

Hello everybody!

The following day was my actual birthday. Had lunch at Uncle Cheffy in Burgos Circle with Karen and Lucy. It was my first time to eat there and their food is really great. We had the steak sampler – 3 different steaks in one order. Yum! And their servings are quite big too!

Lucy and Karen

Three different kinds of steak!

Thanks for having lunch with me on my birthdaaaay! 🙂

And of course, shoot for Lookbook! Haha!

Then it’s shabu-shabu with the family for my birthday dinner. By this time, I was really struggling to finish the food. So fulllll.

Shabu-shabu for dinner

Had the same dilemma for the next few days. Lots of food at home + sem break = #BuhayBaboy. Hahaha! I SWEAR, fit lifestyle shall commence again NOW (and will stop again during the Christmas season. :)) )

Anyway, here’s what I wore on my birthday. Hype this look on Lookbook here! 😀
