Get A Taste of Hong Kong at Eat Fresh Restaurant

Holy Week is all about fasting, but it is really hard to do that when the food in front of you is tempting. Every Holy Thursday, it has been a family tradition to go on a Visita Iglesia. For those who don't know what that is, it is a religious practice of visiting at least seven churches and praying the Stations of the Cross. When we were younger, we used to visit like 14 churches and that's quite tiring. Today, it is faster with seven churches and more people are out of town taking advantage of the long weekend.
After Visita Iglesia, with sadly a few family members getting sick because of heat and exhaustion, the rest decided to go to Eat Fresh Famous Hong Kong Street Food for late dinner. It was located along J.Abad Santos Street in San Juan near Xavier School and Wilson.
From the outside, you wouldn't think that it is a restaurant because people choose the Hong Kong street food on stick displayed in front.
I thought you would have to wait until they grill the food and eat…

All Iz Good at 7107 IMF: Day 2

After a night of EDM and hiphop music, the next day of the 7107 IMF was expected to have a different crowd. This is my chance to bump into people my age unlike Day 1 where I felt like a wannabe teeny-bopper. haha! I can't even keep up with all the non-stop dancing and drinking like I used to during my techno rave days in Malate and Makati.

We got to the venue around 2:30 pm and the front area of the stage was already crammed with people. There goes my chance of getting up close with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But I still got my hopes high...even if the chances of meeting them were really slim.

So we settled in the middle part, which we called our home base cos that's were we meet when we get tired of roaming around. 
Since the only bands that I was interested in watching at 7107 IMF that night were Empire of the Sun and RHCP, I ended up hanging out with some of my pals who I haven't seen for years. 
Finally! Some people I can relate to...and they luckily got their tickets fo…

All Iz Good at 7107 IMF: Day 1

I admit I was one of those who doubted the capability of the 7107 International Music Festival organizers to pull off a successful show because of many reasons - dubious ticketing (we are used to buying them at the mall or the concert venue), mystery list of performers (they haven't really completed the lineup not until a month before the festival), and rumoredly funded by the Napoles (the mastermind of the PDAF scam). 

Despite all the negative feedbacks that I've read online, I still forced myself to believe everything's gonna be fine because I don't want to waste my hard-earned money on a flopped festival. I was glad that I got the tickets on discount last Christmas plus I wouldn't have to worry about the ride and accommodation. My sister and her family already bought tickets so there's no turning back. 

A week before the concert, I was torn between selling my ticket or not because I just resigned from my job (mainly bcoz of the a**hole gaptooth Brit). Sorry fo…
