Ryzza Mae: Best Child Performer Nominee! Vote Na!


Vote na!!!
Napanood ba ninyo si Ryzza Mae sa kanyang dramatic episode (with Jose Manalo at Bossing Vic!) sa "Hulog ng Langit" Lenten Presentation? Well, magkakaroon nang, for the first time, Dabarkads Awards kunsaan nominated ang ating multi-awarded television host as Best Child Performer! The winner will be announced on Saturday, April 26, 2014! Boto na! 

At nahuli ng camera namin si Ryzza Mae na taimtim na pinapanood ang plugging ng Dabarkads Awards sa monitor! Siguro, naaaliw pa rin ang bata everytime nakikita niya ang sarili on national TV! Yes, Ryzza... you're really talented plus you're well-loved! 





Ryzza Mae: Gigil! Gigil! Gigil!


Si Ryzza Mae ay ang baby na mahilig sa baby! Almost two years ago, we posted here nang panggigilan niya ang best friend na si Luccia ("Ryzza Mae Happily Plays with Joey's Apo, Luccia!") na anak ni Cheenee (ang magandang panganay ni Joey de leon) na cute na cute din. 

They used to play ang run around the recording room at madalas na binubuhat ni Aleng Maliit ang kanyang munting kalaro! And yesterday, nakita ulit namin ang pagka-giliw ng multi-awarded television host nang dalawin siya ng young fan sa dressing room. Talaga namang pinanggigilan habang nagpo-pose for the camera ang dalawa! At gumanti din ng panggigigil ang young fan!

Olive Oil Ice Cream, Carrot Cake, Blackout Choco Cake!

Poco Deli 
Unit 9 Ayala Triangle Gardens
Makati City

Olive Oil Ice Cream (P125)

While my companions were having fun with Stella Artois (P220) and Corona (P220) with a platter of different sausages, I, on the other hand, was binging on dessert. Oh yes, that night, I was on a roll. You can't blame me. They were really good.

"Kimukatsu is the most famous pork cutlet in Japan with branches in Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama, Sendai. The secret of our popularity is the combination of a crispy, texture-rich batter surrounding a juicy flavorful 25-layered pork cutlet."  

"This layered cutlet is covered with fresh breadcrumbs and fried slowly for eight minutes. It is then, set vertically for two minutes to steam allowing the heat to spread evenly."

Alex III: California Maki!

L26 B14 Chevelle Cor.
Pontiac Sts., South Fairview
Park Subd., Fairview, QC

California Maki 

Of all the Sushi preps, I say that California Maki remains the Pinoy favorite. I think. Well, it's my favorite, anyway. 

I like Alex III's version. They topped an of order of six rolls with Kani strips tossed in Japanese Mayo, Cucumber, and yes, ripe Mango. That in itself is already a complete meal.

Bec-Bec Coffee of Ilo-Ilo: Deliciously Nutty!

Bec-Bec Cafe
Boliland Garden Food & Drinks Park
Brgy. Bolilao, Mandurriao, Iloilo City

If on vacation, I avoid going to places which can be found in Manila (fast food joints, coffee shops). That's why I specifically asked by good friend, Donnie Ledesma, to take me to places in Ilo-Ilo na hindi ko kilala. And since we have been eating most part of the day, kailangan naming mag-coffee.  I didn't have to ask twice. 

He took me to Boliland Garden Food & Drinks Park. It's like a Food Court na wala sa mall at walang aircon. It's a park where people eat that becomes a concert place at night. Ganun ka-cool. That was where I had a cup of very good coffee at an unpretentious little place called Bec-Bec Cafe. Why good? It's strong, bold and I loved the nutty taste (I thought maybe, the beans used were freshly-roasted?). Whatever. Basta, the "nuttiness" worked for me. Again, thanks Donnie!

Ryzza's Lost Files: Funny Smiiiile!

Isa na namang lost file ang nahalungkat namin. Right after her show finished, dumerecho Ryzza Mae sa backstage kunsaan ay may naghihintay na fan na gustong magpakuha ng photo with her. Excited na nag-pose si girl at nag-flash naman ng funny smile ang ating nasa-mood (as usual!) na young TV host.

Super Halo-Halo in Ilo-Ilo City!

Nida's Super Halo-Halo
Ilo-Ilo City 

I had the most generous, hilarious and the "most efficient tour guide" when I visited Ilo-Ilo City. And yes, Donnie Ledesma, (a schoolmate from Ateneo) took me to places a foodie would kill for.  

After an extremely interesting lunch of fresh oysters and other catch from the sea (details coming soon!) Donnie took me to a palengke where the best Halo-Halo is located.  Sadly, it was closed when we got there. So, we went to the "next best Halo-Halo in the city." 

They say for Halo-Halo to be good, it must have a good combination of ingredients. I agree. Nida's Halo-Halo is not only good but the best I've ever had. I kid you not. I enjoyed the red and green sago, corn, halaya, leche flan, corn flakes, fresh Mango and Avocado cubes. I personally think na ang Avocado ang nagdala ng Super Halo-Halo ni Nida. 

And the price of one Super bowl? P30!

Donnie also took me to the original Ted's Old Timer Lapaz Batchoy
which is just a stone throw away

Ryzza's Lost Files: Bonding ng Tres Chikas!

It's really touching to see the three of them together! One can actually feel the closeness nang tatlo... Mommy Rissa, Ate Princess at siyempre, ang multi-awarded na si Ryzza Mae. The pictures here can say so much more than words can ever tell. 

Selfie! Selfie! 

Ano kaya ang chismis??

What's funny, little girl??

Pwede... Pwede...

Ryzza's Lost Files: Aping Around with Tita Ruby & Son!

Super Hyper! 
This is another lost file ni Ryzza Mae na nakita naming nagtatago. This was taken almost two months ago. Nanggaling si Aleng Maliit straight from school (suot pa niya ang uniform from her school na Eton) and naghihintay lang sila for her show to start. Hyper na hyper ang multi-awarded host na ikot ng ikot sa backstage! 

We caught her with Tita Ruby and her son plus the Director of Eat Bulaga, Ms. Poochie Rivera.
