Blogger's Brunch at Harvest Gastro Pub



As a self-avowed forager of food, I attended two gastronomical events a couple of Saturdays ago. One, with my office mates, when Nathalie threw her farewell party as she was departing for a higher post in our company. Two, when I was invited to cover the Teleserv blogger's event highlighting their different services offered to the the Filipino people; fast, legit, secure and certified delivery of Philippine documents.



The event was held in quaint and charming Harvest Gastro Pub located at The Grand Hamptons Tower 2, 31 St. corner 1st Avenue in Bonifacio Global City. Kinda far, I wish I hired Limo Hire St Helens to get to the venue. Freshly baked breads, brewed coffee and fresh orange juice were served when I came in. I liked their gold plated coffee cup! Beautifully presented, isn't it?


Western Breakfast

The newly acquired restaurant impressed us with three different choices of brunch dishes; The All Filipino Breakfast, Western Breakfast, and the Seafood Breakfast. Since I just came in from my colleagues' farewell party, I chose  Western Breakfast thinking that I could avoid rice but the dish came with flavorful rice that I can't resist. My plate also includes ham, scrambled eggs, bacon, some veggies and sausages.


Filipino Breakfast

I shared the same table with the famous creator of spikeithard.com, A blog that talks about volleyball and other sports related topics. The jolly couple were very kind to let me took a snap of their chosen dishes. They had Filipino and Seafood Breakfasts. The Filipino breakfast includes fried rice, scrambled eggs, beef tapa, tocino, and pork adobo.


Seafood Breakfast


The seafood breakfast is something new to me, a combination of fried, breaded, bangus belly, scrambled eggs, tomatoes, fried rice and sardines. Our dessert was sliced seasoned fruits.



I wonder if these breakfast dishes are available daily in the restaurant or just exclusively concocted for us, bloggers. The buzz I  learned from the net was they serve the best Brick Oven Lechon, Roast Chicken and Gourmet Pizzas! I wanna try those dishes some other time!

International Release: Powerful Pabder Shoes



I've just purchased an orange-y leather belt from Pabder earlier this year and then a pair of black suede Pabder casual shoes couple of months later from the same Italian brand. Guess what I just bought recently? Yes, another pair of Pabder shoes to match that orange belt.  


Design: TM0911


The true premium scent of authentic leather, when I opened the box, was pure happiness. The fact that the product was hand made, I am sure, the quality of the shoes are also standard just the same as my black suede shoes. Like the black pair, its out soles were made of flexible and durable rubber and its insoles are soft and really comfy. I could match it with summer shorts, denims and even casual pants. Good news is, in case of excessive use that may result to damaged soles, I could have the soles fix at any branch for just Php 300 pesos ($7.09). So, if you think Php 3200 ($75.93) is so expensive, think again!


 
My primary concern in my wardrobe collection are utmost comfort, practicality and sensible style. It doesn't need to be pricey nor branded. I don't like apparels with elaborate and bizarre decorations, I am a fan of plain colors and vintage prints. When it comes to footwear, I will never choose that red sole imitation, please!

Yes, there are shoes that are stylish and pain-free and that is Pabder!
