The 1st Bloggers Buffet at Carol's Texan 5



I'd love to be a part of the first Bloggers Buffet at Carol's Texan 5 by TenMinutesTops.com in cooperation with ClubTravelNOW.org. Simply because I'm a huge fan of American food and would love to sample their food while having fun with my fellow bloggers. I'd also like to go for a whole new level Texan experience and try out the great food Carol's Texan 5 has to offer! I bet Carol makes the best Texan food this side of Manila and I'd surely be surprised how true it is once I get to sample her signature dishes that even a diehard vegetarian would salivate and go straight up to cowboy heaven! :D

Needless to say, I LOVE buffets because I love to eat a little bit of a lot of things, if that even makes sense. Sometimes people tend to overeat and over indulge when going to buffets and that is a bad thing right? But the good thing about it is we can always eat "healthy" or choose a healthier choice of dishes and we simply have to watch the portions. Being a light eater, I enjoy food and I love eating good food even if it means standing in a buffet line, going for 3-4x the size of food I usually eat. That said, I always make sure I put salad on my plate which helps curb my appetite. That way, I'll eat less of the "bad" things but of course, I never forget the really yummy & meaty ones like the steak, chicken and ribs dishes. Remember that the point is to "eat to live, not live to eat". :)

Carol's Texan 5 offers the best chicken and ribs this side of Manila. Check out their menu:
Drooling yet? Well, this menu has me drooling nonstop as I write this. :) This is comfort food at its best that not just a lonesome Texan would love! It's a comfort food for everyone! I love me a bite of that Texan Juicy Burger. Looks twice as thick and hearty as your average patty in a burger!

Nuffnang and Hapee Special Screening

Chedeng's gone and sadly, she took summer with her. But there's no more reason for another day of despair and loneliness because Nuffnang and Happee got some Hapeeness to give away. Why? Simply because they are both first class and they are hosting a special surprise screening on June 3, 7:30 pm, at Greenbelt 3 Cinema 2 of this eXtraordinary and first class movie of the year. Can you guess it? Two words. First Class. With an X men! C'mon men you know it! LOL And I'm so glad I'm one of the few invited bloggers/ nuffnangers to watch it! :)

So what makes both Nuffnang and Hapee first class
?

Well they are the FIRST and at the top of the line with a world CLASS level in terms of quality.

Nuffnang.com is a first class Asian blog advertising community which aims to allow advertisers to serve graphic or video based advertisements onto blogs hosted by Nuffnang.com, with over 90,000 bloggers spanning across Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines and Australia. Nuffnang is popular in different countries in Asia and that is why it is truly world class, making blogging advertising so much fun for everyone! I am a member of the Nuffnang Philippines blog network and I'm one helluva proud Nuffnanger!

On the other hand, in Happee I was able to find the first class oral care products. I am personally using Hapee toothpaste with maximum fluoride protection. When I was a cute kid, (kailangan may cute?? Hehe) I have never really used the most popular brand of toothpaste. And as an adult now, I now know that popular brand names do not necessarily mean that it is the best among the best. As for me, Hapee is the best and one of the cheapest Philippine-made product in the market today that is being exported to other countries. It is a great buy and very cost efficient. I know that a lot of people love using this product compared to imported brands because it's worth it. That said, it makes me so proud to be Pinoy and I will forever be loyal to this product. I’m glad that the company is trying to create new variants to suit the needs of its consumers. I’m also happy that I can get the best quality out of a cheaper brand of toothpaste. Hapee is truly first class!

#youknowwhatsannoying


#youknowwhatsannoying,
I just used this hashtag in Twitter yesterday and today and I must say this hashtag is one of my faves.

So here goes,

#youknowwhatsannoying when people say one thing to your face, and another behind your back. Note to self: Get rid of the negative people in your life.. surround yourself with positive people who believe in you and inspire you.

#youknowwhatsannoying when u just had a new haircut and had nice compliments from other peeps but someone tells you they're just saying that to make u feel good.. BV lang! so yeah, here's my new haircut with my baby love.. this is my very first time to chop off my hair this short so it was really liberating for me. But I badly miss my long hair already... #seriously
#youknowwhatsannoying when you want to hit the beach but you can't just go cause it's pouring outside :D here's a few piccies of moi enjoying the sun, sand, sea last summer.. hell yeah, just last month.. Now that Chedeng's gone.. summer's gone too because she took summer with her. :( ihatechuuu...#youknowwhatsannoying Time flies when you eat carbs. And by carbs, I mean eating a lotta yummy and oily food and then having food coma right after, you had to run to the bathroom only to find out... there's no toilet paper. :(( Gluttony at its best... or worst? LOL

#youknowwhatsannoying when people lie to your face but you know the truth. #damnit'strue Sometimes the truth hurts, but lies are worse! I'm not even sure how many more lies I can take before I get... kaboom! True story.

#youknowwhatsannoying when i send you a frakkin long text message and your a** reply back with a one-word text message... worse, if it's just a one-letter word like "K".. and worst, when u don't even bother to reply. Tsk tsk

#youknowwhatsannoying Looooong commercials

#youknowwhatsannoying when people don't answer the damn phone!!! galit?? hahaha kalma!

#youknowwhatsannoying when the photographer asks you to smile but you just can't because that damn sunlight flashin right smack on your face.. here's a perfect example.. tiis ganda lang! hehe


#youknowwhatsannoying when someone tells u u look sexy in your pic and then another one saying u look effin fat on that pic the next day .. FAIL! nagpipigil. nagpipigil I don't want any of your sh!??T ang perfect mo eh! ikaw na! what the fuuuzzz! ok. end rant. LOL whew!
#youknowwhatsannoying when I still want to blog but I can't think of anything to blog anymore. Maybe tomorrow's hashtag would be....#thingsmenshouldneverdo

Oh and I feel like tweeting today.. and tomorrow. Follow me on twitter. @chelle26

Kthanxbye.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES


Woohoo!!! All aboard!

Captain Jack Sparrow is back! Leading a team of pirates, zombies and mermaids, the journey to the Fountain of Youth has never been more exciting. Hoh well, apparently, my "ex" Johnny Depp finally returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise and I can't wait to watch this movie on the big screen!


PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise—this time in Disney Digital 3D™.

You can get more deets about this movie and get your share of the treasure by going to the All Aboard Sg page, the official page for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Singapore - Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

I tried playing one of the 3 games on the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Facebook Fanpage Games & Activities tab (Pirate Yourself, Battle Galleons or Skull Creator). I played the Skull Creator where you can customize a skull for your profile page and it was really fun cause I get to choose what props to add like the creepy facial hair, wounds, hats, accessories and jewelries to give your skull one thrill and a half fun! LOL From the looks of things, my skull looks weird tho but I like it as it is.. simple and fiery! :D I might try the other games later and see if it's cringe-worthy!


Now it's your turn to customize your own Pirate Skull! Just go to the Skull Creator and post your masterpiece to your wall and the Captain will be keeping his eye out for them! :)

Catch the GALA PREMIERE of the movie – PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES on:

Date: Monday, 16th May 2011 (GALA PREMIERE)
Time: 7.15pm
Venue: Shaw Lido Cineplex
