Skydreamer Dines in Dumaguete: Flamin' Grill Cafe

I just had the best flame grilled burger in town! It's sooo ridiculously good and affordable! It can seriously give Flame It, Big City and Burger Joint a run for their money if it was located in Cebu. It's so good, that even though they just opened and never advertised, they already have a lot of followers.

Their menu has a selection of grilled burgers, gourmet sandwiches, desserts and rice meals. Prices range from P40 - P130. If you're in Dumaguete, be sure to drop by this place.

Sorry I can't show pictures. I took some, but my camera's acting up. I have to take it to Sony.

I can't keep you out of my head!

LSS - you know what that means? Last song syndrome. It's a song that keeps singin' in your head, it's the only song you can think of for hours on end until you're semi-tired of it. It's a song you can't get out of your head until you've had your fill. Until you've had enough. Well today, I have two of those songs:

First: Easy by Lionel Richie. Simply because I heard someone sing it in the office while auditioning for our annual singing competition. I haven't heard of that song since - I can't even remember when. This song reminds me of my dad and my childhood. This Youtube link is from shutyomouthsneezy:

The second song is taken from the soundtrack from one of my favorite shows, Drop Dead Diva. This is another old song that I haven't heard of in ages. The title of the song is Baby I Need Your Loving and this version is Ben Feldman's (the guy who plays Fred - Jane's guardian angel). This Youtube link is from TV Guide.

Hope you enjoy these songs!

Skydreamer Eats: Panskeets? ;)

I love Don Merto's Pancit ni Maxi. It's a dish with homemade egg noodles with shrimp, chicken and pork. Before my husband attempted to cook his own version of Pancit, this dish was my favorite pancit. The taste is a cross between pancit and palabok, minus the grease.

When my husband tried his own version, I was so excited. We tried to name it Pancit ni Skeets but we sounded like copy cats so we ended with Panskeets. This is arguably the best pancit I've ever tasted (and not just because my husband cooked it).

Skydreamer Dines in Cebu: Tempura Japanese Grill

I'm no fan of Japanese food. I don't eat sushi or sashimi. I just don't like the idea of eating something raw. I once ate sushi and lost my appetite the rest of the night. I'm never going through that ordeal again.

But there's a side of Japanese cuisine that I haven't explored yet. Their cooked dishes - ha! I was so surprised when I found out that they cook some of their dishes too, and they're really delicious!

My husband and I went to Tempura Japanese Grill at SM Northwing last October 23. He ordered one of their Bento Dishes - Tempura Shokuji Buta (whaaat?) and I ordered Shogayakidon (I'm scratching my head here - I have no idea what this means). This dish has pork strips with lightly gingered Japanese soy sauce topped on rice.

I loved the dish my husband ordered. The tempura was great and the tofu - divine. My dish smelled soooo good, but it was too oily. The bottom part of my dish was swimming in oil - eewww.

Overall, it wasn't so bad. The price was ok for Japanese food (their price is similar to Rai Rai Ken's), the food was decent and the place is really homey and elegant.

Spotted: Lucy Torres-Gomez at White Hat

Last October 23, we saw Lucy Torres-Gomez at SM City Cebu's White Hat Italian Frozen Yogurt opening. She looked so fresh and so simple - no heavy makeup and no bubblegum trendy clothes. She looked so stunningly elegant and classic.

Here are a few pictures

so chic, non?
