Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao

Posted on

I don’t know any Pinoy who doesn’t love Chinese food. Do you? There’s something about how enticed we Pinoys are when it comes to Chinese culture particularly their food. I and the husband are one of the few who would frequent Chinese restaurants and for one date night, we chose Crystal Jade.


are you ready?

Good thing we were early, there were no lines but the tables inside were all taken. If you plan on visiting this on a weekend for lunch or dinner, I suggest go there early unless you don’t mind waiting in line.


spot the recognitions & awards

You know you’ve come to a good restaurant if it’s been recognized & awarded numerous times not only in it’s home town but all over Asia.

the set up

Spotted: stains on the plate & bowl. Calling the manager of Crystal Jade, it would be nice if you’d update your utensils & plates. It’s so not enticing seeing water marks or stains. Don’t use it na, but on the good side I had it changed & the waiter obliged.

what we ordered

and here they are:

chicken w/ cashew


the chicken comes w/a wrap
it’s a wrap!
seafood fried rice
steamed fish w/ beancurd
Xiao Long Bao

They have the best Xiao Long I’ve tasted so far! 🙂

the story

True. Soft skin and with every bitr comes a juicy explosion that just burst in your mouth!

Today’s Outfitey: Braided Belt

Posted on

Having the right accessories can really make a good outfit. Sometimes, we girls (especially me) tend to take them for granted. I have a few belts and most of them are statement belts which one can use to really glam up an outfit. But for today, I’ve chosen a very versatile belt. Ladies & Beckies, today’s key accessory is:  Braided belt.

Hindi naman coincidental pero I really love the color brown, tan, mustard and cream. An item with any of that color (particularly shoes and accessories) looks clean and appealing. Malakas lang makadagdag styling points (if paired with darker shades or monotone brown shades).


braid it to me gently. LOL

Pardon the lighting of this shoot (bilang date night ito, nagmamadali kami to have dinner & catch the last full show)


Chiffon Layered Paisley Print Dress: People Are People

Gray Long Cardigan: Topshop

Brown Braided Belt: Dorothy Perkins

Tote Bag: Gucci

Brogues: Renegade Folk

Jazz up  your outiftey with accessories, most of the time it’s the key to a successful look. Take note that accessories include bags, jewelries and belt. So if one is dominating your outfit, tone down on the other accessories. There’s such a thing as overstyling especially if the pieces aren’t put together properly.

That’s all!
