Burrow Lounge: We Fly High with Unlimited Chicken Wings

Who doesn’t like crispy fried chicken? Not us, certainly! Fried chicken is probably the Filipino’s most loved fast-food choice. It’s evident by how almost every food shop offers it: Jollibee, Greenwich, Chowking, etc. You can even find crispy fried chicken sold for 12 pesos a piece in the streets (I’ve tried those and they’re actually good!).

So Burrow Lounge – a recently opened restaurant in Cebu banked on this love for fried chicken by offering an eat-all-you-can option for chicken wings!

WHERE IS IT? As far as I know, Burrow Lounge already has several branches. There’s one in Lahug (near JY-Campo), and a newly opened one in Parkmall, Mandaue (2nd level, facing City Times Square). Continue reading

Perfection as a Hipster: “God Help the Girl” Movie Review

Last December 2015, I got to spend Christmas alone. So it was the perfect time for me to line up a movie marathon that basically also doubles as an anti-thesis to that annual sh*tfest called the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).

I picked a movie that was selected for the Sundance Film Festival in 2014. Well, the other reason why I picked this movie is because Emily Browning plays the lead role and she is like, my ultimate girl crush. If you aren’t familiar, she’s that girl from “A Series of Unfortunate Events” and “Suckerpunch” among others. Third but not the least reason is, the movie is also a musical project by Stuart Murdoch (from the music band Belle & Sebastian), more on that later.

This movie is God Help the Girl.

Kawaii Moments at Cafe Namoo

A few years back, a lot of Korean-themed coffee shops had been sprouting everywhere in Cebu. Cafe Namoo was just one of them – and this generated a lot of buzz for the past 2 years or so because of its unique cafe design and accessories.

Cafe Namoo has two-storey bunkhouse like designs with cute and really small tables. You have to actually squat on the floor when eating or chilling. You can also post sticky-notes on their walls to leave messages, and they have pillows and stuff toys you can use while chilling.

You’re Only as Strong as Your Next Move: ‘Begin Again’ Movie Review

Begin Again is one of those movies that didn’t got big here in the Philippines (I don’t even remember seeing this open in the local theaters). As a result, I only knew this through YouTube’s recommended videos last January 2016 (almost 2 years since the film’s release).

The trailer is at best, ‘meh’. But as I scrolled through the comments, a lot of people left really good reviews. So I decided to check it out.
