It's All About Timing

It’s All About Timing

As it is with a great many other things in this world, timing is everything.  But sticking to things I know, you can’t burst into a fantastic  mambo flourish or goosebump-inducing instrumental solo without having the basic timing down pat. Perfect timing (achieved through careful planning or ridiculously good luck) sets the groundwork for showcasing...

Comment Cards Count

It’s quite refreshing when an establishment actually follows up on a customer comment card. I had a not-so-nice experience with the Gelatissimo Greenbelt 5 branch and filled out a comment card with a not-s0-nice but very short sentence.

On A Wooden Horse

We chanced upon Wooden Horse one lazy Sunday while looking for a place to have dinner in Alabang. We were feeling adventurous and decided to give this wild west- themed place a go. It was practically empty when we walked in (as it was only about 5:30) and a friendly waiter named Allan immediately jumped up, greeted...

Some sprout up with so much razzle-dazzle but die out once the hype is over. There are a few however, that have quietly managed to stick around for quite some time. I...
