Carol’s Texan 5

Posted on

Being part of a community like Pinoy Bloggers is an exciting endeavor to get to know people & learn new things. It’s only been a year since I started blogging and I think for a newbie, I pretty much have a good number of readers (thank you everyone!)  Anyway, so upon checking the latest happenings from co-bloggers, I’ve recently stumbled a post about Carol’s Texan 5 restaurant being the venue of the event called Bloggers Buffet organized by TenMinutesTops.com and ClubTravelNOW.org.

The first Bloggers Buffet by TenMinutesTops.com in cooperation with ClubTravelNOW.org

I’ve been living in San Juan City for almost 3 years now and I have to admit there are only a few establishments I’ve been to. Take away 9 months of almost 3 years living here, since I was on (almost total) house arrest during my pregnancy. So being flanked by restaurants and establishments that offer good & great deals is always an advantage BUT I haven’t taken advantage of them much. I’ve just started doing so since I’ve started blogging. (I know, opportunities wasted but that’s not gonna happen anymore!)

So upon learning the chance that there will be an event called The 1st Bloggers Buffet at Carol’s Texan 5 on June 23,2011, I immediately got curious & did my research. My, my, oh my! Why haven’t I visited you before Carol’s Texan 5 ? As you all know my readers, I am a HUGE fan of chicken and by chicken I mean any kind of preparation & cooking done to chicken I’ll eat, make that devour! 😉

their menu is indeed mouth-watering and the prices are affordable!

Carol’s Texan 5 offers the best chicken and ribs this side of Manila. Not only do they offer these sumptuous dishes for dine-in but they also deliver! Yes, if you’re too lazy to go out (for someone who lives in the bustling city of San Juan it can sometimes be a hassle to fix up & go out) they deliver! hoooraaay! So I think I can enjoy the Texan Grilled Chicken in my pajamas while being a couch potato from the comfort of my own home! (They deliver in San Juan, Mandaluyong, Ortigas and Pioneer areas for now). Now if you plan to have a party, you can still enjoy Carol’s Texan 5, they have food booths that they can set up in your event (maybe your child’s birthday, baptism, debut, or whatever occasion there is). You can also opt to hold events at Carol’s Texan 5, perfect for all kinds of functions and gatherings. Another good thing about  their service is that they offer kiddie meal sets which is perfect if you plan on celebrating your kid’s birthday in his or her school or even at home or in the office. And lastly, if you’re planning on having an intimate affair but craves for Carol’s Texan 5, then I suggest you order their Party Trays which are suitable for special occasions.

Yes,I seriously wanna be part of this Bloggers Buffet. Aside from meeting new people and learning new things, I’m hoping to meet Carol (the woman behind Carol’s Texan 5) herself. Also, I pretty much am a sucker for American cuisine. Did I mention I love chicken? yes, I do. Oh and of course I wanna be part of this event because it’s always an honor being part of anything that’s a first, right? RIGHT! 😉

Plus, I surely won’t miss this event, it’s only 5 minutes away from my place. Wohoooo! 😉

Today’s Outfitey: Pinstripe Dress

Posted on

Summer’s being bipolar the past few weeks of May and finding the right outfitey is harder than it seems. So wearing something that spells it’s hot but not too hot to bare too much skin is the way to go. This key piece is one of the many great finds I bought from Ebay. Okay since all of you already know that, if you plan to shop there save some thrift finds for me. 😉

summer sheer

So I got this dress for P199 wohooo! winner lang talaga! But since it’s sheer I opted to use white inners but you can also use different colors to add vibrancy in the whole look. I also opted to wear a tank top & shots instead of a white/beige inner camisole dress. Since I know that my activity that day would involve a lot of play with kids (my daughter & nieces) my best bet is to wear shorts.

THE OUTFITEY:

Pinstripe dress: Zara

White inner tank top & shorts: Forever 21

Beaded necklace: Forever 21

Snakeskin flats: Charlotte Russe

That’s all!

ooo,
