Hokkaido Ramen Santouka at SM Mall of Asia

I’ve been meaning to try Hokkaido Ramen Santouka when I first learned that they opened in Glorietta. But I was discouraged when I was told to prepare to line up when I go there. So I just waited for the hype to die down. Well, no more waiting for me because Hokkaido Ramen Santouka is now open at SM Mall of Asia.

10 km done! Run United 2 2013

This is my first 10 km race, and yes, I have no choice but to do a 10 km because that’s the shortest distance for Run United 2. The other distances are 21 km and 32 km (Afroman Distance). I figured I can do 4 to 5 rounds around the UP oval which is about 2.2 km, so finishing this 10 km is possible (lakasan ng loob). Jeff ran the 32 km, their gun start is at 3 am. We barely slept! We have to leave the house at 1 am. We were at the Mall of Asia at 2 am because we were worried on the long queue at the parking area. Thankfully, the parking area opened minutes after we arrived.

At 3 am, it’s race time for the 32 km runners.

2012 Run United 2 is for the whole family

Running is the cheapest and easiest sport, no need for expensive gym memberships or expensive sports equipments. All you need is a good pair of running shoes and you’re all set. I became active in running back in 2010, before I got pregnant. I’ll do my rounds at the UP Academic Oval after work for 2 to 3 times a week, it’s fun and I get to meet some celebrities too.

Happy birthday Daddy!

Happy birthday to the coolest daddy-to-be!

Jeff at Crown Regency Skywalk

We kept bracing ourselves that the little princess might come out so that they’ll have the same birthday since I’m already 34 weeks today. We just had a simple lunch at Mexicali in Mall of Asia with her sister after sending my aunt to the airport. He said it doesn’t feel like his birthday because he doesn’t want to think about his age. Age is but a number I guess…

I’ve been asking him what he wanted for his birthday and he showed me his Amazon wishlist (prepared!). But we’re gonna wait for the discounted prices on Black Friday before the splurge.

Sakae Sushi: Eat-all-you-can Sushi Buffet

While everybody at SM Mall of Asia went trick-or-treating, we spent it with a sumptuous sushi overload at Sakae Sushi. They have an Eat-all-you-can Sushi Buffet from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm, Php 399 for adults, Php 299 for senior citizens, and Php 199 for kids. Sakae Sushi in Mall of Asia has the longest conveyor belt among its branches and so most likely, it has more sushi selections.

Cosmic Kidz, Kids Universe at Mall of Asia

Cosmic Kidz is another attraction specifically for kids at the Kids Universe in Mall of Asia. A huge playground awaits kids, an hour-long of playtime is not enough so be prepared when your kids beg you for an extension of play. Rates are pretty stiff though, and unlike Active Fun where accompanying adults are free, Cosmic Kid charges adults too and implements a one adult per kid policy.
