Pong Eats: Go! Salads πŸ’š

Hello! πŸ˜€

I finally found the perfect salad place near the office - Go! Salads. Cheers to healthy living! 🍷 Thanks to one of my agents for the suggestion. Tried it last Saturday and I fell in love right away. πŸ’š

I tried their Kuro Salad (Baked Black Peppered Lemongrass Chicken, Crispy Bihon and Toasted Black Sesame Dressing). Sarap! (Yummy!) The serving is so generous at a very affordable price of PHP120. They have a lot of farm fresh salad varieties, healthy smoothies and even guiltless desserts - great, yes? They also sell their very own dressing which you can try at home. They accept bulk orders but make sure to place your order at least a day before. Can't wait to try other variety this week. πŸ‘Œ

Snaps of their menu and products below. Try it and see for yourself! πŸ˜‰

Pong Eats: Maria's - Breakfast.Lunch.Dinner.After 🍲

Hello! πŸ˜‹

Here's another place that I just discovered recently. I've been seeing this place when strolling around Emerald Avenue (F. Ortigas Jr. now) but it was only last May 9 that I get to experience their food.  Thanks to my Boss for having the Team Breakfast there. ✌ 

Last May 22, I went back to the place with my Milk Tea Gang - my IT Friends from my previous company. Gosh, I missed hanging with them -always a good laugh! 😏😳😀

The place is called Maria's. They cater to Filipino dishes. Their best seller is Lechon Kare-kare. Legit! Rapsa! (Yummy!) πŸ˜‹
They also have combo foods and foods for sharing. They have drinks too - with alcohol and alcohol free. They have LCD TVs where you can watch sports - it was BOS vs CLE when we were there. We've talked about LBJ but just a short talk as no one's a fan LOL. And yeah, they are open 24 hours, so drop by anytime you like! πŸ˜‰ 

Location: G/F Eton Emerald Lofts, F. Ortigas Jr. Rd cor Garnet St., Ortigas Center Pasig 1605


Snaps below. Enjoy!! 😀

PS: their extra rice and soup are both FREE!!!

Pong Eats: Mad for Pizza πŸ•

 Hello! πŸ˜‹

It's pizza time and it's time to try something new. Did not post anything during our first visit; hence this one. It's our third time in this place and their food seems legit and delish. 

Mad for Pizza is an 80's-themed restaurant located in SM City Bacoor, 3F to be exact. The interior of the restaurant will take you down the memory lane - from music icons, to movies and anything in between. Food is delish and you can also customize your pizza based on your preferred sauce and toppings. Price is affordable and their serving is generous too. Nice, yeah? πŸ•

Have some snaps to share, so if you're near Bacoor, take yourself a trip down the memory lane and go grab some pizza, their chicky, porky, beefy, sweety and pasta. πŸ”πŸ–πŸ„πŸŸπŸ¬πŸ

Pong Runs: Beat the Heat Summer Run πŸƒπŸŽ½

Hello! πŸ˜…

Yesterday, May 7, marked a lot of firsts for me:

1st Fun Run in Cavite (The District Mall) 
1st 3K Run (Clocked in around 30 minutes or a few minutes more than that)
1st Run in 6 years
1st Catching-up Activity w a not so long lost friend, Jong 😜

I've been trying to be active for the past couple of months - jogging to help my legs keep up with mountain climbing and fun runs (it really helped! 😊), Saturday badminton sessions and some diet on the side to lose weight, to be healthier and to be fit. Hopefully, I will not lose my determination and focus to achieve my goals. 

Earlier today, I checked my fun run certificates and my last 10K run was done around 1:40:00. Not bad, my first was 2:06:00. I should try 10K again, yes? Haha! We'll see. It feels good to have an amazing and supportive (when I say supportive, I really mean it) running buddy. So thanks Jong for being one. I couldn't ask for a better buddy. Happy to have done these firsts with you, Master Runner! This should not be the last, okay? Let's add swimming and hiking next time! 

To my fellow CaviteΓ±os, fun runs already invaded our province - yay! And yes, I joined the fad late. But better late than never! πŸ˜ƒ I'll post some snaps of our run. πŸƒπŸŽ½

And also, there are two upcoming running events in Cavite, details and snaps below. Should I join the 24th? 5K? 10K? Hmmm. 😎 

Always remember to speak from the πŸ’™ and finish the run strong. πŸƒ
