New Discovery : Tokyo Cafe

0 comments
Tokyo Cafe : SM Megamall


Carbonara with Japanese Soy Sauce

Verdict : Well...it was different. Nothing outstanding.
I didn't want to have any plain 'ol Carbonara so I ordered this.
Hey, at least I had food.


Thin Crust Cheese and Tomatoes Pizza

Verdict : I quite liked this one. 
Super crispy with lots of Mozzarella. 
I just love my cheeses.


A (little) nibble of Blueberry Cheesecake

Verdict : It was passable. 
Too much gelatin, not enough cream cheese. 
I prefer Burgoo's cheesecake any day.


Cafe 'au Lait
I need Java in my system just to walk straight. So remembering that I didn't have any that day, I ordered this. And my tummy was upset because prior to going to Tokyo Cafe, I already ate. So I needed something warm.

Verdict : Just regular Cafe 'au Lait.
Couldn't taste much of the beans. 
Tasted more like milk with a shot of coffee.

Price-wise, I don't think it's worth it. 
Their servings are small for a 200+ php dish and the servers are not really attentive. 
(One waitress ignored us when we tried to ask for the bill) but maybe it's just this branch.
On the up-side, they have cute menus.

Maybe I'll go there again, maybe I won't. But I won't definitely come looking for it.

New "face" of Balenciaga Fragrance...Stewart??

0 comments

Being a spokesperson is good if you have good rapport with the camera. I admit that she's pretty and stylish but still we ask, can she really pull off more than 2 facial expressions?

"Taking a break from vampires and painfully strained social interactions, Twilight star Kristen Stewart is trying out a new role — as the face of the newBalenciaga perfume.

The actress' mug will rep the brand's newest scent, which will be released in fall '12. Sure, Kristen's had a few praise-worthy moments in print, but the collaboration still makes us ask "WHY?!" Nicolas Ghesquière says it's her "unique sensibility and intelligence" and the fact that "she shares the radical spirit of Balenciaga." We'll admit that Kristen is very stylish on the red carpet, but she just doesn't strike us as a beauty spokesperson — the focus will be on her face and she almost always looks like she's in physical pain in front of a camera.
 They could totally prove us wrong, but we have to ask: Why would Balenciaga want to associate themselves with awkwardness? "
