My 200-Peso Chic Planner

Ok, I admit that I primarily bought it because of the cover. I just love the print! I bought two animal print tops last week (I think that I will be buying more soon) so I decided to get an animal print planner to jibe with my fixation.

It is compact and perfectly fits my satchel. I can bring it anywhere with me instead of just leaving it at home or in the office just like what I did with my 2011 Starbucks planner. By the way, I bought it from Tomato in Glorietta. You can actually get it for free when you purchase goods worth P2,000.

A planner for me is more of a journal. It's where I write my spur-of-the-moment thoughts. That makes me more cautious not to leave it lying around because you might get a glimpse of my bizarre thinking. Haha! I also jot down expenses on my planner, as well as occasions I attended, restaurants and other places I visited and new people I met. So basically, you can learn a lot about me if you get to read my planner. :)

Let me show you what's inside the planner. The space for each entry is adequate. Well, at least for me.

I love discounts!

This is the Red Card which entitles the holder to a ten percent discount on all regular-priced items. That's for a lifetime! I think I will using this often since I love buying accessories and bags from Tomato. Aside from being affordable, they are easy to mix and match. Very versatile pieces!

Do you keep a planner? What are you getting for 2012?


Going Italian in Boracay

Evenings in Boracay are usually spent over an engaging dinner or a pulsating chill-out in clubs and bars. Since I am not particularly a party animal, I settled to have dinner at Aria Cucina Italiana.

Situated at the beachfront of D’Mall, Aria is a modern Italian restaurant and is considered one of Boracay’s well-established landmarks. It boasts of pizza cooked in a handmade wood-fired oven. The place is relatively small and can conveniently accommodate small groups. We were lucky to arrive at an empty Aria on our second night and got the place to ourselves.

On our table:

Carbonara (P350)

Bolognese (P385)

I was disappointed with both dishes. Bland and boring sauce but perfectly al dente pasta.

This giant pizza comes in three flavor combinations of our choice. We had Aria (tomato sauce, mozzarella and parma ham), Quattro Formaggi (pecorino, feta, parmesan and mozzarella) and Salami Piccante (spicy salami, tomato sauce and mozzarella).

Mezzometro di Pizza (P1,100)

The pizza is superb! Since it is cooked in a traditional way using wood-fired oven, the flavor is evenly spread. Entirely crisp crust and heavenly melted cheese. You can pinpoint the distinct taste and smell as compared to the commercial pizza. It takes longer time to cook though but once you take a bite and enjoy the burst of flavor, you will be convinced that it is truly worth the wait. I usually add chili flakes or hot sauce on my pizza but this one is an exemption.

I will definitely come back to Aria for the pizza. No more pasta for me, please.
