We were searching for a restaurant after eating durian in F. Torres. In order to satisfy our hungry stomachs, we decided to check near Bak-Bak and we discovered Redmoon restaurant near K1 KTV and Spa.

I know the upper viand looks gross but it taste delicious. I can't remember the name though. The oyster omelet at the side, taste weird but delicious if eaten with hot sauce.

That's Dennies Joy and me(happy face and stomach!hehehe)

I love their air conditioned room for quiet eating time but we decided to try their open space. They played loud dance and rnb music that makes me dance while eating. They also have a flat screen TV outside to catch some telenovelas after eating. Perfect place also for smokers and drinkers. Definitely worth the taste and price.Yum!

You might be wondering what they are watching. The Marimar craze is not yet over and this picture is the evidence. After the success of the Marimar Philippines version, GMA 7 is airing the Mexican Marimar again. I remember I was still in high school when it first aired and Filipinos became addicted to Mexican telenovelas. Thalia became an icon of beauty and strength. Now, it still shows that we still love Marimar and Mexican telenovelas.

The Filipino version of yellow cab. Everyday, you see jeepneys in all colors. It is the main transportation here in the Philippines and a must ride if you are new in this country. Captured this moment while I was waiting for our jeepney to get through the traffic.

Imagine yourself surrounded by this flowers or your garden looks like this. I would probably lounge all day reading or sipping my coffee with this flowers. They relieve stress and calm your spirit. How I wish I have them in my backyard but I think I will just neglect them because I don't have a green thumb or just my excuse because I am lazy in nurturing plants. If I have the luxury of time, I might take care of them everyday.hehehe

Ten CDs to Brighten Your Workday

Posted by shierylssi at 4:01 AM 0 comments

It's a gorgeous day, and you want nothing more than to be out and about having some fun. Only problem? You're stuck at your desk -- and it's only 9:15 in the morning. But if your boss lets you listen to music while you work, you're in luck. Give any one of the following 10 CDs a spin. They're guaranteed to make the time zip by and brighten your workday.


This is pure New Orleans funk. Galactic mixes Theryl de'Clouet's '70s-era Motown singing style with instrumentals to create music that will have you dancing in your cube. "Bongo Joe" and "Mercamon" mix trip-hop and jazz with a side of jam band.

Robert Randolph & the Family Band

The souls of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan must have linked up with that of Mississippi guitar virtuoso Robert Randolph. If blasting this blues album through your headsets doesn't improve your productivity, nothing will. A great antidote to burnout.

The Whole of the Moon: The Music of Mike Scott and the Waterboys
Mike Scott and The Waterboys

I'm not usually a fan of greatest-hits CDs, but since this group's music is very hard to find, this will do just fine. The Waterboys will bring out the Celt in you. "Fisherman's Blues" and "Medicine Bow" mix Irish fiddles, barroom rock and folk lyrics. If you come across any of their other albums, treat yourself.

How Will the Wolf Survive?
Los Lobos

This band's style ranges from Tex-Mex blues to polka -- cool polka. The band sings in English and Spanish. By the time you're halfway through this one, you'll be in the market for an accordion.

Derek & the Dominos

We all know the song, now here's the album. Eric Clapton and Duane Allman (who died shortly after its release) craft a beautiful collection of songs here, including the masterpieces "Key to the Highway" and "Bell Bottom Blues." Put on your headsets, turn up the volume and be transported to music nirvana.

Hittin' the Note
Allman Brothers Band

This 2003 effort is the first Allman Brothers album since Dickey Betts left the band. Warren Haynes steps up, and he and Gregg Allman combine with Derek Trucks to create a rocking disc. The southern blues style the band originated is back with a vengeance on such tracks as "Desdemona."

The Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 1
The Traveling Wilburys

This is one of the best albums of the '80s. Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan mix basic rock ‘n' roll with great harmonies. This album will have you singing along with joy, especially during "End of the Line." Look for one of Bob Dylan's greatest songs -- "Tweeter and the Monkey Man" -- on this disc.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
The Beatles

Pure rock, acid rock, orchestral rock and more. This album, which came out in 1967, is considered by many to be the greatest rock album of all time. I find myself humming "When I'm 64" sometimes without warning. Spin this disc and forget about work for 45 minutes.

Born to Run
Bruce Springsteen

OK, this one is a no-brainer. I am a huge Bruce fan, and if he were absent from this list, people would be checking to see if I'm OK. This album is loaded with such classics as "Thunder Road," "Born to Run," "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" and the epic closer, "Jungleland."

Full Moon Fever
Tom Petty

This 1989 album contains a great mix of pure driving rock -- from "Runnin' Down a Dream" to such fun sing-a-longs as "Free Fallin'." Much to the chagrin of my coworkers, I find myself singing out loud when I play this one. All together now: "'Cause I'm free, free fallin'..."

I need to meditate right now. The turn out of events are alarming but I need to be calm and very serene. I just have to breath and listen to my Meditation playlist. I hope everything will be fine soon.
