F All Day Dining Buffet Restaurant at F1 Hotel Manila- Bonifacio Global City

During our recent weekend staycation at F1 Hotel Manila, we had our lunch at F1's all-day-dining buffet/ala carte restaurant F. We were there to sample F's Christmas Buffet featuring some of the holiday dishes that Sous Chef Pierre Tan and his team prepared. The spread may not be as extensive as other hotel buffets, but expect to see a few mouthwatering appetizers, main course, and desserts.

F1 Manila Hotel Weekend Staycation- Home of Happy Experiences at BGC

F1 Hotel Manila, the first hotel to open at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig invited a few bloggers to a relaxing and enjoyable weekend staycation last week. It is conveniently located across S&R Membership Shopping Center and St. Luke's Medical Center along 32nd St. A short itinerary was prepared to make sure we enjoy most of the hotel's services, facilities and amenities available to all in-house guests. 

The hotel's lobby is located at the 5th floor where guests check-in/check-out. The Premier Lounge is also located at the same floor where we met up with other bloggers for the welcoming remarks.

Linguini Fini 100% Homemade Fresh Pasta- SM Mega Fashion Hall

Linguini Fini is one of the new restaurants that opened in SM Mega Fashion Hall recently. It originated from Hong Kong and brought to Manila by The Moment Group ( Burger Bar, Cue Modern Barbecue, Manam, 8 Cuts Burger Blends, Phat Pho, Q-Daddy). Honestly, I haven't heard about Linguini Fini until it went abuzz on my social media feeds earlier this month. 

D decided to celebrate his birthday at Linguini Fini a week after it opened last September 8. It wasn't as packed as we thought it would be, but reservations were made nevertheless. 

Complimentary bread was served together with balsamic and olive oil. 

We ordered some of their best-sellers starting with The Bronx (P785)

Ecru Nail Spa- CND Marine SpaPedicure® and Gelish® Gel Polish in Banawe

I love to eat, I love trying out new restaurants, checking out the latest food craze, and discovering new food finds. I enjoy documenting these things to remind me of the experiences and memories of the things I love to do. But once in a while, I also write about things I love other than food. If you're following me on Instagram, you'll see that majority of my posts are food shots of what I've eaten, or where I've been eating. At the same time, you'll also catch some snippets of my everyday life other than eating out. 

Just recently, I was invited to try this new nail spa located just a few blocks away from the office.

ECRU Nail Spa in Banawe is one of the few salons in the Metro that offer CND spa services. They offer both CND SPAMANICURE® and CND SPAPEDICURE® to clients who want a complete premium nail spa service from fingers to toes.

I tried Ecru's Signature Manicure (P230) for my hands, and Gelish Soak-off Gel Polish (P800) was also applied to my nails.

Their gel nail polish is priced higher than regular nail polish, but it was definitely one of the best and shiniest polish my nails ever had. It was also convenient how gel polish dries up fast so you don't have to worry about reapplying I never liked gel polishes before, because aside from the fact that it's more expensive, it also needs skill and expertise to apply it.

Slammin' Mini Burgers + Fries + Dips- Greenhills Promenade New Wing

Slammin' Mini Burgers may not be as visible as the new establishments in the new wing of Greenhills Promenade, but they surely get a lot of visits especially from moviegoers who are tired of the usual popcorn and chips from the cinema's snack bar.

Slammin Mini Burgers reminds me of White Castle sliders from S&R, only this time, the burgers are cooked fresh rather than microwaved out of the box. 

Being not much a huge eater of burgers, I appreciate sliders that let me taste different flavors without stuffing myself. And that's why I really enjoyed our recent visit to Slammin' Mini Burgers earlier this month. 

As much as we were eager to try their classic mini burgers, it was Slammin's Exclusive Black Box Series that made us excited.

Thanks to their Black Box Triple (P265), we were able to sample all three limited edition flavors.
