Having captured a number of photos of this gorgeous lady in a stunning white dress, I just felt like I am looking at Juliet, finding his Romeo. Few months ago, in our photography class, we were asked to try out our skills and just take unlimited photos of this “bride-in-a-wedding-dress” concept. We went gaga over those different strategies that we should take to come up with good photos! So here are the ones I considered the “best”. Well, I’m still a beginner so just please bear with me. :-D
This pizza chain seems like an ordinary one at first, but wait until you see what’s really extraordinary about it. I find myself curious too, especially that it has a catchy label so I gave it a try to discover and experience this food place.
James Markham, with his creativity, gave rise to this concept of an artisan-inspired build-your-own pizza after his other successful pizza resto concept such as Knockout Pizzeria, New York Style Pizza, Made on Demand (MOD) Pizza, and the Pieology. Good to know that the first international franchise outside the US is here in the Philippines! :-)
When I heard about this place, I was so eager to go visit there and see how cool that pizza chain was! And when I finally went there, I was so amazed because I could confirm that it was really cool and exciting inside!
Design. Build. Eat. Yeah. Those are how creating your pizza go.
See? You’ll never get bored while waiting for your turn in the queue because of the interior design that includes all these inspirational quotes written in the wall.
As you go inside, you’ll see this, and you can get one for your menu guide to make your “build-your-own” pizza easier and faster.
Actually, there are also few ready made types of pizza which cost P245, but then I prefer creating your own, which costs P285, since that is the main concept of the pizza chain and it’s really fun to build a pizza which will be named after you, and you’ve got to choose all ingredients to be included, based on your own preferences. But if you also want to try those listed ones, why not right? :-)
And so, let the fun begin! :-D You’ll not get confused with where you should start because they have these fun signs to guide you in the process.
First up, a ball of dough will be pressed and then turn into a circle-shaped pizza.
Next step is to choose your type of cheese. You can choose any type or even combine them, all for the same price. Same goes for the toppings.
It may seem easy to just choose whatever combination of toppings you would have but in reality, as you stand there seeing these all different kinds, it could really be difficult to decide which ones should be included just to have one great pizza. Besides, there is added pressure when you see people next to you in line are also very much eager to have their turn as well. Anyway, you can actually choose all if that’s what you want! But then just be careful on how the end-product will taste. ;-)
After creating your pizza and giving them your name, it will then be placed into this really, really hot oven.
Afterwards, you could choose from these really, really cool drinks!
You can choose from water, imported beer, wine, or soda.
The soda fountain gives you three times free refill. :-D
It’s fun to read all these interesting sayings as you wait for your name to be called.
And now, time to enjoy our customized pizza! :-D Sadly I could not remember the details of each one so I could not label these with their ingredients. :-(
This dessert is the bomb! I’m telling you, you should try having this Banana Nutella Pizza, which costs P145. Other flavors are Peanut Butter Nutella and Strawberry Mango Nutella. ;-)
Cool boxes for take-outs.
Tell you what, this is really one great, innovative pizza chain! :-) With your own dose of creativity, you can be your own chef in building your own pizza! Can’t wait for my next visit. I’ll definitely try different set of toppings next time! :-)
I may say that this place is the highlight of my first Hong Kong experience. Disneyland is indeed a land wherein you feel like you are a kid once more right from the first step going there! :-)
Even from that place where we waited for the MTR to arrive, the Disney feels already began!
I could still remember how amazed we were when we finally get in and all these adorable Mickey Mouse shaped handrails welcomed us!!
And Mickey Mouse shaped windows as well!
And here we are! We got there at around two or three in the afternoon so it was really hot! Looking straight into the camera and making a full smile was really a hard thing to do with the sun striking!
We wandered and enjoyed different stuff here. It’s actually like walking in a wonderland full of living fairy tales!
Sulli is just so big and adorable! Unfortunately, we didn’t had the chance to have a picture with him since the waiting line was like endless! :-(
I fell inlove with this stunning castle! It’s just so magical to stand in front of this huge enchanting building!
The carousel ride was fun, too!
There are also plenty of food places inside so you get to choose from variety of foods available.
We ended our visit in Disneyland by watching their very famous firework display which sadly I didn’t get to take pictures of because the battery of my DSLR went dead. So much frustration. Ugh! Even though, our Disneyland visit was still ecstatic! Can’t wait to go back here again with my own future family and just share the magical feeling! :-)
So much for the hiatus in here. It’s now time for me to start clearing off all these backlog that I have, since I am now done being a schoolgirl, and finally savoring all my free time while still freshly unemployed and currently applying for my very first job. Anyway, raindrops just won’t stop pouring down, just like this time last year when me and my family got the chance to visit one of Hong Kong’s most visited places, the Ocean Park.
We paid for our admission passes and waited for our turn to ride the bus afterwards.
And now off to Ocean Park!
It’s apparently huge so it really requires a whole day for the visitors to experience all stuff in here.
Those hanging ones are the fun and a bit shaky cable cars! Riding these gave us a very stunning view of the entire place since this park is located between two different sides of mountain.
As we arrived on the mountain on the other side, a photo booth is ready to capture our smiles and an instant printout is to be offered in exchange for a cash payment.
And we’re finally back on land. We also walked over to the amusement park. If you are someone who’s fond of rides, then here is your perfect place to be!
This ride is called “Whirly Bird” and I’m telling you, it really swings so high! I’m not brave enough to try these kind of challenging rides but then I could see it by looking from down below.
We also visited the very cold indoor Grand Aquarium.
How I wished I have these cute and splendid stuff in my bedroom! :-D Anyway, here is a video I made back then showing all our experiences in visiting Hong Kong a year ago including our trip here in Ocean Park. :-)
Hi! I would like to introduce to you my baby’s baby! ;-) This Honda civic car is a property of my boyfriend, Jose.
The name is actually a combination of the word “car” plus my nickname, “Abby”. So the result? “Car-by!” Funny, isn’t it? LOL :-D
This kind of style fits well to my guy. He’s simple just like his car. :-)
I love those stylish wheels! :-D
Woah, I missed this, I missed my blog. So plenty of things happened in my life within the past few months which majority were not considered good memories at all, so here I am, starting to get back on track once more and learn from those “roller-coaster ride” experiences. Oh well, 2013 really hit me so hard that it actually changed me into a better, stronger lady that I am now. I might say it was a difficult journey though, but I’m still grateful with what I’ve been through. After all, these are all on God’s purpose, I believe. So, 2014? Hit me with your best shot! :-)
What better way to start off the new year right than to have a list of plans for the year 2014, right? And so I am more than happy and fulfilled to finally have this Limited Edition Starbucks 2014 planner. I had been wanting this since then and through my endless effort to buy those required number of Starbucks beverages just to complete all of the stickers, now I finally got it! I tell you what, the feeling is overwhelming! I feel so fulfilled! Haha! :-D It felt like I won a big prize. This is my very first time to have this, that’s why. :-D
The planner comes with an elegant box cover and a little antique-looking coffee icon bookmark.
There are actually four colors available which are brown, magenta, yellow & black. And I had chosen the black one because it’s the most stylish one for me. And I love its icon bookmark! :-)
This year’s theme is Coffee Perfection so the vibe really shows.
It has a lot of coupons inside so you can get discounts from different stores and restaurants. Not to mention those adorable stickers included as well! :-)
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a planner as the year starts up, and look back on it when the year ends? ;-)
Finally, after almost a month, I’m now able to blog about my family’s trip to Hong Kong! I’ve lost Internet connection since we transferred residence lately, so I haven’t got a chance to continue my blogging. Anyway, off to my Hong Kong pictures now!
We’re all so excited to fly out of the country for the first time! Well, who wouldn’t be if you know for a fact that you’ll be spending some quality time with your family in a country where you’ve never been to.
Special thanks to my boyfriend, Jose, for lending me his spy sunglasses. Totally awesome, aren’t they?
Our flight number.
I’m one happy girl to have my first plane ride abroad!
These were the first snacks I had when I got to Hong Kong.
And my first meal!
For me, they have strange taste. Well, of course it’s because I’m not used to these kind of foods. But then, I still appreciated those and enjoyed eating dishes there.
No doubt that people here are healthy-looking. Their dishes are filled with healthy foods and they actually serve it with a number of varied viands which will really make you full.
I love this beverage! It’s like a green tea with extra something inside which I forgot the name, unfortunately.
See those two older people behind me? Funny that they asked about what our nationality is and I proudly said that we’re Filipinos having short vacation in their country. They looked glad watching us eat together.
Our first ride to their “MTR”! It means Mass Transit Railway which is their rapid transit railway system. I love how this kind of public transport brings you to your planned route in just a few minutes time!
It’s amazingly beautiful how they decorated this hallway going to the rest rooms with recycled buttons! Creative, indeed!
Giant and adorable minions in town!
This is in Maritime Square, a 4-storey shopping centre located on Tsing Yi Island.
Can I have your bananas you cute minion? :-D
These are the tickets used in riding MTR.
Flying back to Philippines, I’ve got these stuff offered by Cebu Pacific. Their Milk Tea tastes so good, as well as the hot mocha drink and pastry. That black-and-green thingy was gotten from a little game inside the plane. We fortunately answered right the last question so we were given this reward.
It was a wonderful experience indeed! I have made a simple video coverage of our adventure in there, here it is:
