This event was held LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST MONTH PA #CAPSLOCKPARAINTENSE, February at Bonifacio Global City High Street pero I still want to blog it since it was one of the best events I’ve ever had. Not just because of FREE foods but everything! Yes namern! 

Anyway, British Festival was a three-day event (Feb. 24-26). This is also the British Embassy Manila’s annual event. The event was mainly composed with street artists, art workshops, car displays, British fashion and foods.IMG_9460(1)IMG_9458(1)Yah! I’m really bad taking these photos, not in a right angle. HUHUHUIMG_9457(1)I love this British Got Talent booth! I was supposed to audition na eh but I think it’s not the right time. Charaught! Hahaha. There was a cutie guy na contestant daw ng BGT na nandoon sa may booth but I hadn’t given a chance to take a picture with him kasi I’m shy and I don’t know him rin kasi. IMG_9443(1)Look how cute these miniatures of United Kingdom landmarks that were set in the venue! You don’t need to travel to UK for a photo with the Big Ben, Buckingham Palace or travel to the magical world of Harry Potter to see Platform 9 3/4. Hahaha!IMG_9480IMG_9446(1)IMG_9456(1)IMG_9444(1)(1)#TitasOfManila #LolasOfManila #PabebesOfThePhilippines

I’m with my britishh friend Kat, she tagged me on a post regarding this event and we never thought that were able to go since we have school stuff that time and lot of things to do pero OMG!! This time, natuloy. WOOOOH!

P.S. Walang pictures sa booth ng mga food kasi sobrang saya namin sa free foods actually lahat ng nasa shopping bags namin puro foods talaga. Hahaha

Food Trip at Maginhawa Street

Once you’ve heard Maginhawa, what comes first in your mind? I know, most probably it would be FOOD. FOOD TRIP. Everything about FOOD. As we can see a lot of posts from different social media sites, Maginhawa Street will take you in an instagramable places/restaurants.

Let me share my own experience in Maginhawa. At first, I thought Maginhawa street is just a street na tabi-tabi yung mga restaurant na it wouldn’t be difficult for us to find a place to eat at. (Sorry, I’m from Cavite, I don’t have any idea about it. Hahaha) But when we already reached the place it was different from what I’ve expected. So Maginhawa street is located inside the U.P. Village, some are in Teacher’s Village and Sikatuna Village and hindi tabi-tabi yung mga restaurant. Medyo malalayo sila sa isa’t isa. Hahaha! Para itong nasa main road ng village (please correct me about this, main road nga ba? hahaha)  and it’s like 3 houses before ka ulit makakita ng restaurant. (well just some of them) We really had a hard time to find a particular place to eat. Anyway, I’ll give some tips for those first timers, like me and for those people who are not familiar with the place.

TIP# 1 Before going to Maginhawa make sure that you know the restaurant you want to eat. Kasi based on what we’ve experienced, we forgot to search online for the restaurants. It really consumes so much time for us. Luckily, tricycle drivers around the village are familiar with those restaurants. Kahit i-describe mo lang, kuya, yung may harry potter motif or you can ask them kung saan ang pinakamagandang puntahan. May mga ire-recommend sila sa inyo.

TIP# 2 Wag kayo masyadong magpa-late mas lalo na if that’s your first time. Around 4:30pm na kami nakarating, and that was month of January pa so medyo mabilis dumilim that time and we still can’t decide where to eat, what to eat. So we ended up like, 3 restaurants lang.

TIP# 3 I think it’s better to wear comfy shoes mas lalo na if wala kayong dalang car. You really need to trek. Hahaha

Thanks to manong tricycle driver for dropping us by here in 150 maginhawa food park. Hindi na kami nahirapan para maghanap uli nang makakainan. Forgot to take pictures of the food. Natakam agad ang lola. Anyway, here are some of the photos 🙂
