"We are all a little weird. And life's a little weird. 
And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, 
we join up with them & fall into mutual weirdness and call it love."

V-Day can be 365 days,
But the 14th of February is one special day where you'd want to say:
'You mean the world to me,
That's why it'll always be you & me!'

This is my Pre-Valentine/Birthday Outfit!
I'd love to wear colors that pop out especially on joyous occasions like this.
Remember, what you wear will always set your mood,
So always make an effort to at least look good!
I'm wearing the color of Valentino.
Yes, I am a romantic!
There's just something about love that really makes the world go around.
Like Hercules said "People do crazy things when they're in love!"

“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.” 

You know it's love when you find yourself suddenly smiling out of the blue.
You know it's love when a song reminds you of a particular someone
You know it's love when someone can brighten your day like no one can.
You know it's love when it's a feeling you can't really explain.
Enjoy this special day, my friends, family and readers.
For those who have special someones,
 Make them feel love...
 Show them true love!

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” 

-Dr. Seuss

For those who know me,
You'd know the 2 F's I can't live without!
But for my new readers & followers,
It's FASHION & FOOD, baby!

For casual wear, 
I'd like to keep my look fresh & vibrant.
In fact, you'd never see me in a T-shirt...
Except if I'm at home or exercising (haha!)

Oh, I just love dressing up;
And oh, you'll never find me on a diet;
As food & calories will always be part of my vocabulary!
 So let me share with you one of my latest Shangri-la food escapades,
Choosing the best place at the new East Wing will always be a test!
And as a foodie, I must say, I've tasted all but three.
 So when you're at a lost, just 'SETTLE FOR KETTLE!'

Be wary of long lines though,
But believe me, this place is worth the wait!
So I'll not let you drool any longer...
Here are some snapshots of what we had.
Oven Roasted Squash Soup (Php249)
Shrimp Salad, Lemon Oil, Tarragon

Let your taste buds decide how wild this soup is.
It's just the perfect fusion of sugar, spice & everything nice!
You won't be able to put your spoon down with this one.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken (Php519)
Honey Glazed Corn Bread, Country Gravy, Cajun Honey

If you were just to order 1 dish, it would have to be this one.
Call me old-fashioned or silly, but fried chicken???!!!
BUT no no, this ain't just an ordinary fried chicken.
Every bite is just so succulent, soft & crispy...
That this is something you shouldn't dare miss out on!
Imagine these chicken fillets sit in buttermilk for 24 hours,
Now that's something extraordinary.
Try it & you'll understand me. 
Miso Glazed Salmon (Php559)
Pan Fried Norweigian Salmon, 
Marinated Cold Soba Noodles, Mango Cilantro Salsa

This entree is just unique; it's a masterpiece!
Who would have thought that salmon & cold soba could go together?
Topped with mango salsa, this dish surely is an Asian favorite with a twist.
U.S. Angus Short Ribs (Php469)
Braised in Cervesa Negra & Chipotle Barbeque Sauce, 
Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Coleslaw

The Short Ribs was just perfectly tender & juicy, need I say more?!
Reuben (Php489)
Honey Oat Bread, House Made Corned Beef,
Braised Cabbage, Emmental Cheese

This house-made sandwich is just uniquely flavorful. 
The cheese wasn't too overpowering, it gave Reuben just the right kick!
So if you're looking for a place that promises:
 Flavor, Portion, Quality---it's all at KETTLE!
This place is just love at first bite, 
Everything made of sugar, spice & everything nice.

'Til we meet again, KETTLE!
With you, I'll always Settle.
