Going bananas over The Butter Half

Food, review

I love banana bread. There’s always been a special place in my heart (or should I say, stomach) for this piece of art since college days. So when the #EastwoodBananaFestival happened last June 30-July 2, I made sure I got a taste of The Butter Half’s famous banana bread.

Sometimes, it takes one man to make the first step for everyone else to follow — in this case, it takes one woman.

The latest DC Entertainment, Inc. (DCEI) film, Wonder Woman, as you might have heard, is a vindicating experience after Batman vs Superman. After an overwhelmingly devastating 27% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for BvS, Wonder Woman has garnered a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 76 on Metacritic as of date. DCEI has picked up the pieces quite neatly for their upcoming Justice League movie later this year.

It’s been a while since I’ve come across an addictive RPG.

Beyond the connection issues (please fix it, sirs and madams) Ubisoft’s February release, For Honor, is a delight to play. The game is heavily focused on online multiplayer brawls, letting players choose different modes of PvP matches. It’s quite an investment, let me tell you that. With other campaigns such as Global Events and Class Dominations in play, the formula is solid when it comes to encouraging players to explore and stay in the game as much as possible.

Coming Home to Corner Tree Café

Food, review

‘It feels like coming back home to the comfort of somewhere you’ve never been before.’

That was my thought upon first seeing the café. Outside, the design is simple and serene, a bit hidden from public scrutiny; a reminder of those countryside houses so ideal, they can mostly be found only in European-set films.

Hole in the Wall: Bad Bird

Food, review

As a pescatarian, sometimes it gets tricky to pick a place where choices of seafood and vegetables go abound. But if all else fails, I still choose to have my dose of chicken; as long as its meat isn’t red, then a cheat day or two is personally acceptable. (This is me trying to justify how I still cannot let go of the possibility of eating Jollibee Chickenjoy.)
