Weekend Food Tripping at: Karate Kid + More Birthday Gifts

Hi dearies!!!!
if you are on my twitter, you would know that I had a lovely dinner with my family. It's nice to meet up with them again for a nice dinner. Where did we go? My favorite Korean restaurant ever! :) If you check back to my post here, yes, its the same restaurant. So I am not going to blog about it anymore.

What I'll be talking about for food tripping this weekend is a nice Japanese fast food restaurant that offers variety of dishes at affordable price. Correct me if I'm wrong but they have more than 16 branches to date.

The Karate Kid Restaurant

4 pcs California Maki
Php38.00 (approx less than $1.00)

I am actually not a California Maki lover,
so these 4 went down to other's tummy :)

Beef Ramen
Php89.00 (approx $1.85)

I am craving for something warm,
So I ordered the Beef Ramen which tastes good
It would be better if they have more noodles though

Katsudon Pork with Rice Php105.00 (approx $2.20)

This is my favorite dish at the restaurant
I love the combination of the katsudon pork with egg
and the sauce blended well with the rice.

Chicken Teriyaki with Rice Php130.00 (approx $2.70)

This was originally my favorite
BUT, since I'm allergic to chicken
good bye yummy Chicken Teriyaki


Thanks to my wonderful friend from Australia, she sent me birthday gifts :) Thanks so much for the cute magnetic memo pad, Charles Worthington Take Away Stay Smooth Frizz-Taming Serum, Gap gloss in Black Cherry, Rimmel e/s quad in Smokey Noir and the wonderful message on the card!!!


I've got another gift from hubby

I also got a surprising gift from my hubby! Who was sweet enough to keep this a secret eventhough I'm with him ALL THE TIME. He sneaked out while we're not together to buy this gift!

At around 12am of Feb 28, he sneaked in the paperbag with this gift and asked me to open this while he videocam me.


I've been using his laptop everytime he uses the PC, and he knew I find it a bit bulky. I never told him that I want a smaller laptop because I don't want us spending money on something not that important. So sweet! I felt guilty and happy at the same time! lol

Here's to show the size

the bulkiest part of a laptop
is the battery charger

I love it that the battery charger is smaller :D

Spoiled spoiled spoiled!
But it feels good to be one! :P
Have a wonderful week ahead
Stay Happy!
