BubblyFluffy headed to The Fort for another foodie escapade. I know what is in your mind is that The Fort is known for having a high-end restaurant and bar. But lemme share you the restaurant I visited that was so cheap but with superb food. And yes, it is located in The Fort.

Floring’s BBQ and Grill is catering a Filipino food. They have a variety of food selections; they have fish, vegies, pork, chicken, and seafood. So, if you’re longing for a Filipino authentic food and “lutong-bahay” food, Floring’s is always there to satisfy your cravings. To those who wonder where “Floring” came from, well, it is the name of the owner’s Chef Florabel Co-Yatco and Ricky Laudico.

Let’s start with the Food Adventure.
Pork Bbq. For only P99, you will enjoy this sumptuous porky-licious bbq paired with unlimited plain rice. For P120, this flavorful pork bbq can be paired with unlimited java rice. Cheap, huh?! Yes it is!
The Roasted Grilled Chicken (Lechong Manok). A very juicy-licious chicken in every bite and if I will buy lechong manok everytime my family crave for, I will surely go to Floring’s.
Chicken Diablo (Fried Chicken). A very succulent taste and hell-of-good yummy chicken of Floring’sand this one is one of my favorite. The chicken meat was so tender and flavorful. I even ate it without the sauce.
Pork Sisig. Oh.. la.. la.. Ha-ha. Beer please! Ha-ha. This porky-licious sisig was so good. The moment I tasted it, it was really awesome. Well, I highly recommend this to my friend who loves sisig. They have to try this and I know they definitely agreed on me. By the way, they also serve beers. So, Floring’s can be also a good hideout for barkada bonding.
Ensaladang Talong. Yes, Filipino Restaurant is incomplete without ensaladang Talong and Floring’s have it.
Halo-halo. Just in time for summer. Floring’s halo-halo is simply the best, plus the cheese.Nom.. nom.. nom...
And of course, one way I look for a restaurant is having a relaxing ambiance. Floring’s have it. The beautiful artwork painted on the wall is so nice and give a vibrant aura. The ceilings are so nice and such a cozy place.
yours truly with Chef Florabel
My verdict: I surely come back to taste some more. My next target is to taste their seafood. The food was so amazing and the price was so affordable. But if you are coming at lunch time be ready because there are a lot of people coming during that time. However, Floring’s can accommodate 120 people. The food and the ambiance was so relaxing and inviting.

Recently, another yummy innovation were launched to the public and as a fan, it’s a MUST to try it.

And then, last Saturday, March 17, 2012, I got an invite from GMCI and of course I said YES. It’s been a pleasure to be invited to celebrate the 75th Birthday of Krispy Kreme at the new store in the South. Krispy Kreme is on the move to make it easier for everyone to enjoy their favorite treat.

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Susy and Geno together. Sustagen! Yes, they were the two mascots that give me joy whenever I saw them on TV Commercial when I was still a kid. But now, that I am still a kid-at-heart, it is good to see that two lovable individual are back and being together.
Susy & Geno
We’ve seen how patiently searching Susy have been for the last few weeks. And after, all the hardships and of course from the help of many people Susy finally found Geno. Susy and Geno, once again, REUNITED!
Susy
Geno
And last Sunday, March 11, 2012 at the Market Market Activity Center, I was so happy and lucky to witness their comeback being together. It was the first public appearance in many years for the faces of Sustagen milk in the 80s and 90s, who disappeared from the public eye, only to re-emerge two decades later, starting with Susy’s return last February. Only then would we find out that she and Geno had actually lost touch through the years.They also performed a dance number and ohhh.. Geno kissed Susy.. So Sweet! ♥
Susy arrived first, toting an album she made for Geno containing photos posted by her fans on her fanpage. She was easily spotted by the Market! Market! crowd, though, and was swarmed by well-wishers wherever she would go. A good number of media people were also on hand to cover the momentous event. In fact, it was during one reporter’s interview with Susy that Geno made his grand entrance.

They’re so cute! Hmmm.. My heart filled with so much joy and happiness to see them together! Love being a kid again. It was a day that left many misty-eyed with countless happy memories revived—all thanks to Susy, who initially just wanted to see her friend Geno again.

Yesterday, the “Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang” Bloggers’Conference was held at Baang Coffee Shop located at 258 Tomas Morato Ave. corner Scout Fernandez, Quezon City. And these were the foods served to us.
Baang Coffee
Pasta. The presentation was awesome. They had these fried pasta twisted on top that adds a little drama to the plating. The taste was like a Filipino Old-Style Spaghetti, which has a sweet taste but the meat balls were so dry though.

Who is the modern day Filipino hero?
He’s no Andres Bonifacio nor is he a Jose Rizal. But even without a sword, a gun or a pen, his sacrifice for the country is no less valiant. After all, he carries the aspirations of his family and the country’s economic security on his back.

Aptly called as the modern day hero, these 11 million overseas Filipino workers have earned the trust and admiration of employers all over the world. Something we as their countrymen should all be proud of. With this reason, the Commission of Filipinos Overseas, Duty Free Philippines, and Kraft Asia pay tribute to the Global Pinoys that have showed excellence not only in their careers, but also in the initiatives to help their fellowmen in the country, through the Thank You Global Pinoy Awards.

The Thank You Global Pinoy Awards is an initiative to search for the most outstanding global Filipino workers who deserve the gratitude not only of their loved ones; but also of the nation as a whole. It was primarily led by the Commission of Filipinos Overseas, the government agency tasked to promote and uphold the interests of Filipino emigrants and permanent residents abroad. The online nominations ran from October 2011 to February 2012, and 10 outstanding overseas Filipino workers have been chosen and will be announced during the Awards Night on March 15, 2012.

The Thank You Global Pinoy Awards is our way of saying thank you, and giving recognition to Global Pinoys. We are proud to announce the names of the individuals, who have shown their outstanding contributions to both their employer, and their country,” says Imelda Nicolas, CFO Chairperson.

“In its tradition of being the thank you and pasalubong chocolate from overseas Filipinos, Toblerone has initiated this project in order to give back, and give each and every Global Pinoy what they truly deserve—a sweet thank you,” shares Jaya Singh, Region Director, Middle East and Asia Pacific, Kraft Foods World Travel Retail.

Be part of a grateful nation. Join the rest of the country as it honors the ultimate global Pinoy, whom a grateful nation will say a resounding thank you to.
