Maina and the Med

~ ~
For our friend, Maina's birthday we met up at Podium for some dinner and drinks. 
She also sponsored our barkada screening of Going the Distance, the latest flick of Drew Barrymore and Justin Long. 
You just can't beat good entertainment, good food, and the best company!

Cafe Mediterranean as per Little Miss H's request

7-layer dip with chips
P: Very complex tastes with this one but predominantly eggplant. I liked the crispy filo chips as well. Solid choice of appetizer for a group.

Beef Gyro Plate
P: Was deciding between this and the moussaka but I was hankering for some meat. Although the beef was well-cooked and tender, there wasn't enough flavor. It was decent though when heaped with all the toppings (the Greek names of which escape me now haha).

D: The Lamb Gyro just wasn't doing it for me that day. I wasn't feeling the overall taste of it.
P: I finished the rest of this and it wasn't half bad with the offending onions taken out. There were just too many big, raw slices of onion.

Hanna's awesome-looking Moussaka
P: Tried this in a prior visit. I think it's one of the highlights of the menu and it's one of the cheaper items too. Ground beef and eggplant topped with creamy cheese and bechamel sauce, mmm!

To combat all the strong flavors, we grabbed a quick dessert in the form of Sebastian's Vanilla Truffleburger. Two chocolate chip cookies sandwiching vanilla ice cream with a fudge core. 
D: I enjoyed this immensely. I could have had three of this.
P: It's called a Truffleburger. You have to try it if just for the name haha. 

Post-movie drink at Borough, the latest hang-out in the Ortigas area. It's got a lovely, laid-back vibe supposedly inspired by Brooklyn. The menu is pretty extensive and offers a wide array of interesting dishes and freshly baked goodies. Too bad we had dinner already! We'll definitely come back to try some of the things that caught our eye (Chocolate Chicken Wings and Cola Glazed Porkloin)!

They serve really refreshing mojitos, one of the best we've ever tasted!

How cute is their version of milk and cookies?! You can pour their "house-blend" milk into two shot glasses and sample their oatmeal and rasin, gingersnaps, or peanut butter cookies! Yum!

Sim's Pulled Pork Sandwich in a homemade hoagie
I can't wait to try this! It looked super good!

Thanks for a great Saturday, guys! Had fun with our drink-naming game!


Bangkok shirt, navy carrot pants, and grey plimsolls
Got this shirt from the weekend market in Bangkok. I really like the mismatched pattern, a nice twist to the deluge of plaid nowadays. It sort of feels 1950s, like you should be driving a Buick or something haha.

parka from Betty and shoes from Parisian, Zara skirt, 
random burn-out tank, vintage patent box sling bag

Just got this parka recently and I'm digging how light the fabric is. It keeps you cozy and is substantial enough to keep the stray wind at bay but is also breezy enough for when the schizo weather turns humid. Used it to 'de-frillify' this skirt I bought on impulse.

Oh and meet two of the many creatures living harmoniously in my accessory station!
