Barrio Fiesta Experience 2013

I want to talk about my recent trip to Barrio Fiesta at SM Sta. Rosa. I've seen the Barrio Fiesta deal before but I wasn't that compelled to purchase the deal since I can't use it at a nearby mall. I have actually eaten there before and I was only delighted to go back.

For those of you who don't know, Barrio Fiesta is a popular restaurant which offers delectable Filipino food. It was founded in 1958 by none other than Sixta Evangelista Ongpauco. Barrio Fiesta has more than 10 branches in the Philippines and has a branch in California, USA.

I got the Bario Fiesta voucher for only Php490. I printed my voucher and headed to the mall with my friend. I arrived shortly after lunch and they asked for my Metrodeal voucher and ID. 

The order came relatively fast and I was surprised at the amount of food– 1 whole fried chicken, seafood paella rice and 1.5 L Pepsi. I enjoyed the crispy skin of the friend chicken and I savored the paella. As much as we loved the food, we didn't finish everything. After all, the set meal was meant for 4 persons. So, we had to half of the food home.

Check today and you will see a lot of good food/restaurant deals (Brother's Burger, DADS Crossover Buffet, Joey Peperroni, etc.) . I personally hoarded a lot of those vouchers so I can save on money when eating out. :)

Thanks again Metrodeal!

Vivere Hotel Alabang - My Experience in 2013

In this modern times, almost all people lead a very hectic life.  I, myself, am  swamped with things to do most of the time. Although I super love to travel (those travel deals offered by Metrodeal are awesome),  I cannot just leave my to-dos and do whatever I want. Just like most of you, my work and other obligations often prevent me from enjoying life's splendors.

 There's a saying that goes, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” I certainly don't want to become dull and burnt out too soon. That's why I made a promise to myself that I will have at least one day rest per week. Lets just say that this is my way of striking a balance between work and life - and shopping at Metrodeal.

This is... Cerealicious O_O
 My treat last week was a breakfast buffet at Vivere Hotel's Skylounge which I bought from Metrodeal. I was quite excited because I've been longing to dine there since who knows when. The hotel is just a quick drive from my place too, so it is indeed the perfect escape.

Variety galore °_°

Vivere is a five star hotel located in Alabang which boasts 200 elegant rooms and 31 floors. The Skylounge Restaurant & Bar is located at topmost floor. This is where the breakfast buffet is served every day, which was advertised in Metrodeal.

Healthy viands

The Skylounge Breakfast Buffet was really awesome! It's exactly what I expected from a five star hotel. The buffet was elaborate with so much to choose from. The service was exemplary – the staff was friendly and surprisingly very helpful. The view was nothing short of amazing. I wish I can dine like that every day.

This breakfast buffet was precisely what I needed to de-stress from a very busy work week. Thanks a lot Metrodeal!
