Random Photos

From our Samsung ES70 digital camera.   It's a point-and-shoot camera so I still have to practice how to get clearer shots.

My engagement and wedding rings.

My breakfast today:  garlic rice, scrambled egg and corned beef.   Cooked by AJ, no less!

Our new table accents.  The frames are a wedding gift from my friend, Neil.

Light lamps at The French Baker.

Our sofa from Mandaue Foam. 

My LV Papillon Bag.

Next in my list:  study Adobe Photoshop hehe.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Food Post: Cafe Mediterranean

It's been a while since AJ and I ate at Cafe Mediterranean.  Particularly the Rockwell branch.  

Last Sunday, we had our lunch here after hearing mass at Rockwell's chapel (located on the 3rd floor).

Their "little plates" are our favorite.   We had our usual sampler plates, which is made up of several of their little plates with pita breads on the side:

Our favorites:  Tabbouleh, Tapenade and Kofta.  

Tabbouleh is a combination of nutty cracked wheat , tomatoes and parsley. 

Tapenade is a rich olive spread, with capers  and olive oil from Provence (this one's my favorite!)

Kofta is made up of ground beef and lamb from Greece grilled on skewers.

This colorful and flavor-rich meal costs only P235.00 and is already good for sharing.

For our main lunch, AJ and I each had a Chicken Gyro (priced at P115.00 / order with fries and pickles).

We noticed though that its size got smaller.  But still it's good, so good it was well worth the price.

We were happy with our mediterranean lunch and we were both feeling good afterward.  Maybe its due to our meal's low-calorie, low-cholesterol ingredients.  

Cafe Mediterranean is located at the Ground Floor, Rockwell.  It also has branches at the old Greenbelt and SM Mall of Asia.

J. Lo, Marc Anthony split after 7-year marriage

Another one of those powerhouse couple splits.  But this one was unexpected.

You can read the full article here at International Business Times.

The split was announced yesterday, and I was kinda surprised to learn about it because they look to me like a perfect couple - they share the same passion for music and entertainment.   Their chemistry onstage was genuine, and they do make beautiful music together. 

And who would have thought that they are having problems already, especially after their highly-charged performance at the finale of American Idol:

Being both artists, I think maybe their individual careers brought about a strain in their relationship.   Maybe they came to a point were they want to pursue different career paths (not to mention that J. Lo is more popular than her husband) and compromises cannot be made.

But that's just me. 

The couple is blessed with twins, which will undoubtedly be J. Lo's source of strength in these trying times.
