3 Enjoyable - Girl Bonding Ideas

I love family vacations, spending quality time with your family is indeed precious. Even a romantic get-away with your spouse is ideal for a healthy marriage. 

But joggling different hats puts your sanity to a test. Life can be tough sometimes, and all you need to do is call your girlfriends to press that reset button, recharge that batteries and sing "Girls just wanna have fun!"

A simple get together for lunch or dinner will do, but if you find that boring, I've listed down 3 Enjoyable- Girl Bonding Ideas that you might consider.

Are you ready ladies?

1. Record a song together at a professional recording studio

I had a chance to do a recording session with my office mates at Studio Z Recording Studio few months ago. It has been a hell-week at that time, and so I gather the ladies at the office and asked them to do this session to get rid of our stress at work.


They had fun. We had fun. It's their first time to do this kind of activity, and I am so glad I asked them to do this instead of just hanging out at the mall.

Each of us recorded one song  and here's my cover of Cyndi Lauper's True Colors. Enjoy! :-)



2. Perform together


The practice itself before any performance is actually a good bonding activity. It also helps you become a good team player. If given the chance to perform with your friends, just do it. Go girls!

Here is a video of me (the lady in blue hoodie) performing with R, Z, and T. 




3. Travel with your girlfriends


Ladies-only travel groups are becoming popular these days. Whatever reason you have for traveling with your girlfriends is no longer a question. It does not matter whether you just want to celebrate life, do girl things like shopping, or just trying to escape from your routine with them. The more adventure, the more the fun, the more the memories.

Are you ready for one? So grab that phone and call your girlfriends and start planning for your next bonding activity.

For those of you who doesn't know me, I still have my day job while working on my online business at night. I make sure that I allot 1 to 2 hours a day to do sales, marketing, accounting and designing while making "chika" to my customers.

5 Ways on How to Have a Memorable Dining Experience at K-Pub BBQ All You Can

K-Pop ba ang trip mo?

Yes I love watching K-Dramas but at my age, I am not really into this K-Pop genre, but my kids do. As in super! BLACKPINK, SEVENTEEN, EXO, BTS and GOT7 to name a few. I've been hearing them singing GOT7's "Just Right" for like a thousand times already. Every line, every word, every ohohooohooohooohooo!, every nanananana...... is not just music to their ears but in their hearts as well.

So giving into their heart's desire, we had our lunch at K Pub BBQ : Meat all you can in Trinoma to celebrate my husbands' birthday. For 599 pesos per head on a weekend and holiday or 499 pesos on a weekday, you can order as many types of meat as you can.

Sulit o Hindi, that is the question. For me, it's "sulit" because aside from the delicious meals and our full tummies after dining, we were able to have a memorable dining experience.  

How did we do that? Here's how:

1. Sing your heart out  while watching music videos of your favorite K-Pop Group

If your tweener is into K-Pop, I am sure they will sing their hearts out singing Never Ever, As If It's Your Last and Blood Sweat and Tears. They might even dance to the beat!



2. Make them part of your celebration.

Inform the staff that you are celebrating something. Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, graduation, promotion or anything that is worth celebrating for. Let the K-Pub crew serenade you with their very entertaining song and dance number to the tune of Saengil Chukha Hamnida (Happy Birthday To You!). We really enjoyed their performance, it was really fun. You can see in their eyes that they are also really having fun performing and entertaining their guests.

3. Avail of their Eat and Run: Unlimited Refill for 1-hour Promo

The Eat & Run (Beat the Clock) Package of K-Pub I guess is the most practical of all the packages they are offering. For 499 pesos, you can experience meat-all-you-can with unlimited servings of their 7 signature meat dishes (Samgyeopsal, Galbi and Bulgogi style dishes - Beef Sukiyaki, Pork Belly, Korean Style Bacon ( which is our favorite), Marinated Pork Belly in Sweet and Spicy Sauce, Marinated Pork Chop (my hubby's choice), Marinated Chicken in Sweet and Spicy Sauce, and Marinated Chicken in Sweet Soy Sauce.

It also comes with steamed egg, kimchi-pajeo, steamed rice and kimchi fried rice, soup, house salad (which I also love), pizza, rice punch for dessert. It was a gastronomic experience for all us. 


4. Allow their staff to take photos of you, greet you on their 360 degrees video wall, and post on their FB page

K-Pub has a dedicated staff that acts as customer service representative that will interview guests, ask them if they are celebrating something, take their photos and greet them on their 360 degrees video wall. Of course they will ask permission from you first if you will allow them to post on their official FB page. Just say yes!


5. Simply enjoy dining with your loved ones.


Bring your family, friends, officemates and loved ones. Bata or matanda, K-Pop / K-Drama fan or not,  they will surely enjoy the dishes and the ambiance of the place. Oh and don't forget to avail your free Korean ice-cream after paying the bills.

Hugot Pa More at Hugot Cafe Lipa



In this era of the "hugot generation", they are always in the look out for a place where they could do their personal hugot. They need a channel where they can unleash or express their emotions and feelings.  These channels can be any of the following : social media, blog, vlog, memes, journals, letters and now even on food!

Yes! Food, you read it right!

Few weeks ago, my husband and I visited Hugot Cafe Lipa . I've been wanting to visit this cafe because I've heard so many things about the concept of this cafe. And I want to experience it myself.
Hugot Lines or Hugot sa bulsa?
What makes this cafe extra-ordinary is that no one will judge you in case you just wanted to express your emotions that day. Whether you are heart broken, longing for someone, can't move on from a break up, or maybe you are in love with someone else. 

You can write your feelings on their #HugotWall. Reading some of the messages, I've noticed that there were a lot of customers of this cafe who were broken-hearted. Ang Sakit mga beshies!

Sakit mga beshies! Daming broken hearted dito.
My husband ordered the "Mag-Un" Angus burger for 120 pesos, while my choice is the "Inbox seen-zoned" Clubhouse sandwich for 115 pesos. Although the name of the sandwich has nothing to do with our emotions that day, we were happy that we made the right choice. I super love the tuna spread in my clubhouse which is sweet, it perfectly blends with the ham and scrambled eggs. Oh wow! Making the right choice, sounds hugot to me!

Once your order is ready, it will not be served to you right away. The staff will call your name at the counter and will entertain you first with some witty and hugot lines. Ang tamaan sapol!

Watch the video below and see for yourself.



The interiors, doors, walls, and even the ceiling puns will hit you on the spot. And I'm sure sa dami ng mga patama dun, may tatama at tatama sa yo bes!
