There will be a football tournament that will be happening on November 10 to 11, 2007 at the Alabang Country Club inside the Ayala Alabang Village in Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila. The competition is named Alaska Cup after its main sponsor.
It’s just a one day 7-a-side tournament for men on Saturday and women on Sunday.
Getting to Alabang:
From Manila – take a bus with a sign Alabang/Metropolis along EDSA.
In Taft Avenue buses with Alabang/Metropolis or SM South Mall/Zapote signs. Then when you’re at SM Mall, take a jeepney to Metropolis, then stop at Alabang Town Center, Ayala Alabang is just at the back.
I had the privilege to sleep for a night in an 80 year old house of a friend located in Heroes Del 96 in Caloocan City, Metro Manila.
What so special about my overnight stay was not only because of the house’s age, but also its location. The house is located along Heroes Del 96 Street, where the Katipuneros used to pass through during the war against the Spanish in 1890s.
Last monday I went to Unionbank in Shaw boulevard Pasig City branch. The branch used to be International Bank or iBank before it was purchased by Unionbank.
I was there to deposit my hard earned money. I handed the deposit slip at 10:10 am. Though there were a number of customers ahead of me, but i was expecting that i could be out in less than 30 minutes. But i was terribly wrong!
I waited, and waited. One hour had passed, my name was not called.
The lady beside me was 40 minutes earlier than me, even her name was not called. She finished her transaction at approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes. I finished mine at exactly 2 hours!
Another good Chinese food house i highly recommend.
They have good tasting foods, but i only tasted just one, which was the Mushroom Fish Rice. Though the price is a bit higher than the usual Jollibee and McDo. The Mushroom Fish Rice was 138 pesos.
Mien San Noodles House is located in 36 Villa Ortigas, Granada St. Quezon City, Metro Manila. If you are heading to the Greenhills Shopping Center from EDSA it is on the right. Their telephone number is 721-5794
I personally experienced it. Twice at that!
First, it was in their Manila Bay area branch. We had to wait for almost an hour for a food to be served. That was last year (2006).
Again, this October. I was with my football buddies, since we were in Rockwell, we had to look for a not so expensive restaurant to dine in. We’ve had enough of McDos and Jollibees. Dencio’s was the choice.
The almost an hour wait for the food, again! Not only that, the chicken we ordered still had blood in it. We requested it to be grilled again, but it only got worse, and still with blood in it.

A bomb rocked Glorietta 2 in Makati City on October 19, 2007. Three people died on the spot. About 67 people were treated at the hospital.
It was earlier reported that it was an LPG explosion, but cops say it was a bomb.
Here’s an article i wrote previously: Terror Watch, to guide you when you’re in Metro Manila.
There are still a lot of places you can find in Metro Manila that offers cheap priced food stuff. But definitely not cheap in taste.
The yummy spaghetti below is priced at 15.00 pesos in a carenderia in Pasig City.
