Well hello, February! And what does it tell us? It's love month already! I bet a lot of people (especially couples) are looking forward to the up and coming Valentines Day! It you're thinking of taking your partner to a nice restaurant, then why not try one from the Bistro Group, home of the country's finest international and home-grown dining brands! Timely because they have just launched their Taste the Love campaign in which they stressed their passion for food and in giving the best service that they could give to their customers.
Along with the launch of this campaign is the kick-off of the Bistro Group Premiere Card! This privilege card offers up to 40% off on your total bill, complimentary dishes, and even birthday treats for lucky cardholders!

No one can ever go wrong with chicken. No one! Then again, there are those restaurants that offer mediocre servings of such, and it's just such a shame... but here's one thing that I'm rather sure of: Chubby Chicken is not one of those; because boy, do they know their chicken!
I've actually never been much of a frequent visitor in the Katipunan area. (Well hello, LaSallian here, in daaa hawwwwssss! Lol!) But seriously, it's just a bit too far for me. However, after being invited by the one of the owners, Raine 'EJ' Santos, thereby experiencing the chubby-fied kind of dining, then do believe me when I say that this new fast food spot is worth a long ride to Katipunan, and is even worth going to Katipunan for!
Having gone there on a Saturday, I was expecting that the place would be kind of... deserted. Because let's face it, Katipunan is mostly alive only during the school days. But imagine my surprise when I got there and saw how there were a good number of people dining in! There were even frequent 'passer-bys' who would ask for take out! Right then and there... I knew that there must be something special about them.

My Saturdays would often be filled with a lot of activities and events; but on the rare days that I get to free that day up, I would usually stay at home and have a movie marathon on my own. Definitely one of those 'World Off, Me-Time On' moments that I love so much; and oh, that's a phrase that I use to describe the times that I get to relax and pamper myself.
So one Saturday, I managed to have a hassle-free day! Woop woop! Armed with my BIG stash of movies and TV shows, there was one thing left to mind... food! Now of course I wouldn't bother going out if I've got Quick Delivery to help, right? I've had such a wonderful experience with them the last time that I ordered for Arya, so I thought, why not I order again? I was thinking of having some good ol' pizza; wanting to try something new, that's when I chanced upon Nanos Pizza! When I read their tagline: "A Piece of Italy in the City" I was just simply sold!

Last 2012, I mentioned how I was lucky enough to be invited to CCA Culinary School's 5-Day Food Media Course [see related post here], but what I did not mention was another one of their sessions: food photography!
Obviously, owning a food blog such as this involves a 'responsibility' wherein I should at least take good shots of the dishes that I encounter. Having to own only a point-and-shoot camera has limitations, but thankfully, I manage. Nevertheless, this class did not involve teaching us into 'how' we should take photos, but rather involved on a 'sneak preview' on how professional photographers take salivating shots of food for magazine covers (for example). And woooow, just looking at all the set-up and lighting dizzied me!
