Mango Tree Bistro with the Blog Friends :)

AKA: The dinner that made us want to convert into food bloggers. (hehe)


Last night, I had a nice and quiet lafang session with my blog sisterettes and friends at the Mango Tree Bistro in Greenbelt 5. Sabi nga ni Sir Jon sa kaniyang tweet: 

Jon Herrera
dinner   later 730 gb5 with blog mafia



Ako personally excited ako for this dahil ilang linggo nadin ang events namin ay sa bar setting ang drama--kaya for a shange ang saya nung sit-down dinner naman, lie-low kung san mas makakapag chikahan kami ng bongga.



Kinikilig padin ako when I see my nameplate:


Gandara lang ng mga kaharap key: Vern Enciso, Aisa Ipac, and Aie Corpuz :-)


Bonggels din side ko: Krissy Cruz, Me!, and idol Sarah Tirona :)


After a few chikahans...Dinner was served! *get ready na na matakam!*
 


Yehey, unang hinain palang, naka smile na tummy ko, hehehe! :) 
Mango Tree Bistro is a vegetarian-friendly resto! :)

Also had the Tom Yum Goong soup... Asim, salap! Mahilig ako sa ganun, yun mapapa face dance ka sa ashim! ;P


These are shrimps daw, so pass akey! Pero checkout the nice presentation noh! Takam!? ;-)


My girls were handing the salad plates na to me (hahaha), so nun medyo nauhaw na me, I had the Thai Iced Tea...milk tea siya! Sarap, super perfect for the maaanghang foods - na peg ng mga Thai dishes!


 Since Sarah and I do not eat beef, we ordered for a special curry: with chicken and eggplants (Ms. Eggplant talaga! Hehe!)! Ang salap ng sauce!!!
A burst of flavors, a perfect marriage of ingredients for my taste buds!
Yown! Pang food blogger na! Haha!


Sarah introduced me to the yellow bellpepper...Ang salap niya ihalo sa curry sauce. :P 
 In between bites, I learned that Sarah took up a culinary course back in college. 
Me: So nagluluto ka talaga?! Cool!
Sarah: *nods* :)
Me: Ay oo nga naman, culinary nga e. ;p 


Another favorite! Phad Thai Jay! :P Noodles siya na maraaaming sahog! 


Kahit di ko eat nitong karne norte, best in participation ako sa pag picture ng paghihiwa ni chef!



Mga busog! :) Tracy Ayson, Bjorn Bedayo, Vern Enciso, and Aisa Ipac! :)


Birthday ni Tracy! Hehehe! :) With Keigh Jalbuena and Krissy Cruz!


With Connect Agency's Carina Alejandrino, Pax, Tracy, and Aie!


Clean plate nako, suko na! Hahaha!


So 50s! :) Bjorn and Vern ang cute niyo! :D


Chikahan on the other corner: Tracy, Camille Co, and Lissa Kahayon! :)


Picture muna girls! :-)

Akala ko dun na nagtatapos, but no! Desserts naman!

Sweet Rice with Fresh Mango
Ang salap nun sweet rice--sticky! ;p I love flavors, iba yun dating ng dessert nato for my palate (ansabe? Hahaha)


Eto di ko na nadatnan hahaha! Pagka photo op ng Fried Cheesecake with Ice Cream, lumingon lang ako ng saglit, sa-id na ang pinggan! Hahaha! Ganun nga siya siguro kasalap!

The perfect way to end a lovely dinner....

The others had White Wine, 
while Sarah and I capped the night with Mango Tree Bellini! :)  

Ang highlight ko for that "event" was the nice conversation I had with my dinner-seatmate Sarah. Chikahang bongga kami on life ni Ateng, and I learned a lot about her. Sa looong talk namin, I remembered asking her if nag quarter life din ba siya noon (hindi siya mukhang lagpas 25 na noh? :) bongga beauty ni Sarah!)...And confeermed naman na everyone goes through that phase. Nag stick sa akin yung advice niya that night na: "If may gusto kang gawin, pag isipan mo muna ng mabuting mabuti if gusto mo talaga." =)



Thank you Mango Tree Bistro, Connect Agency, Vern, Sir Jon, and Carina for the nice chill night with my blog friends. :) Definitely one for the books. :) 


Went home at narealize waley pakong outfitey kodak, kaya ito ang haggard na resulta:
Chica-laidback lang na look for a dinner out with friends (nuks). Also, I made sure naka jackey ako para pag lumaki ang tyan, hehehe. ;-)

  5. wow, natakam naman ako sa desserts! I wanna try that sticky rice.. yumyum! and I super agree dun sa sinabi ni sarah, "If may gusto kang gawin, pag isipan mo muna ng mabuting mabuti if gusto mo talaga." Amen to that. Pero minsan nakaklimutan ko mag ponder kaya may times talaga na bira lang ng bira.. hahaha :)
