Acacia Hotel’s Foie Gras Burger


I love burgers! It is one of my favorite comfort food. I have tried a lot of burgers out there, In fact a lot of them were really good. Some burgers even tried to be fancy by using Angus Beef or Wagyu Beef. But this… was probably the fanciest burger that I have ever tried. Acacia Hotel’s Foie Gras Burger.

Acacia Hotel Manila (Alabang) Foie Gras Burger

Acacia Hotel’s Foie Gras Buger P725++

I have tried Foie Gras before and I did not like it - pang mayaman kasi :) So when I was asked to try this I was skeptical because what if I did not like it? Sayang… But after  few moments of explaining how good it was, I got convinced and gave in. And Oh Boy! It was really Good!

Acacia Hotel Manila (Alabang) Foie Gras Burger

Forget the dressing! The burger was simple, buns, lettuce, patty, and caramelized onions on top served with freshly cut fries. The Patty was super Juicy!! like I said I don’t like Foie Gras as it is but when I took a bite into the patty the combined Juices of the Beef and the Foie Gras really crates a wonderful melts in your mouth flavor! I am not exaggerating here but it was really good! Though a bit expensive, but if you are looking for a different burger experience, you have got to try this one! It is worth every peso!

Oh wait… there’s the Foie Gras :)

Acacia Hotel Manila (Alabang) Foie Gras Burger

So if you’re passing by Alabang and you are looking for something different. Go pass by Acacia Hotel and take a bite of this delicious burger!

FYI: I love this but I cannot discount the fact that I am anti Animal Cruelty. Foie Gras is already being banned in some countries because of the way it is made. Forced feeding ducks to have a fatty liver. That is just terrible!

Hanggang Sa Muli! Paalam!

Globe, Globe, Globe… Why Do you have to go this far?


globe logo

If you are a subscriber of this blog, you are well aware of my bitter-sweet relationship with Globe. You probably remembered my previous post regarding Globe Telecom and how I think they value your Loyalty. There was quite a stir and it generated quite a number of hits highlighting the fact that there a lot of Globe Subscribers out there who share the same sentiments with me. In fact, that post even reached Globe’s HQ and after which, they provided immediate assistance. But we all know, we need more than that and the issue goes way beyond that.

Here are Some Snippets from my previous email conversation with a Globe Manager:

“Hi Dencio,

A member of my team saw your blog and reported the post to me. Just want you to know that we have escalated your concern to the SME team and they will coordinate with you one of these days.

Thank you for supporting Globe.”

----------------

“Hi Paul,

First of all, thank you for taking action regarding the concern with my account. It was relatively fast, faster than the usual.

Second, I got a call this morning from one of the Loyalty Team's representative. THANKS TO YOU! They offered to waive my cash out for the 16GB iPhone 4 for the Business Plan 1,499. I declined the offer, I told her that I will just wait for the release of the iPhone 4s - hoping that the offer still stands by that time.

Third, Of course the main reason I wrote the blog is to air out my concern and frustration with Globe. BUT it does not end there. I am also hoping that what happened to me will not happen to other Globe Subscribers. I hope that you or the departments involved will take time to review the current system. Clearly, there is something wrong with the offering, paired with a lousy group of customer service people. Something really needs to be done. This is not good business practice. I hope this courtesy and fair offering will also be extended to millions of other loyal subscribers, some of which wishing that they could just transfer to Smart if only for their number which they have been using for the past 10 years!

Lastly, I appreciate your help on this issue. I hope that the offer will still be available when the iPhone 4S arrives. If not, I hope I can still ask for your assistance. This email may come as an unsolicited advice but I hope you guys pay attention. A good product is not enough, after sales customer services can really make or break your reputation. I will update my blog in a few days, some of my readers may be affected as well - they need to know.

Dennis”

------------------

“Hi Dennis,

Glad to hear this bro. Just to let you know that it wasn’t just me who followed through, but mostly a combined effort of Globe Business’ SME Marketing and the Loyalty group.

I understand and agree to most of your points. We will review existing processes and programs to provide better customer experience.

There is no definite date for PH’s release of Iphone4s yet. I am not particularly sure if the offer extends to the new version, but rest assured that we will keep you posted on this matter moving forward. I am just an email away if there’s anything I could do to assist, or you may opt to contact me via mobile indicated in my signature below.

See you around!”

Loyalty

iPhone  4s and the Competition

I thought (and hope) that when Smart gave Globe a run for their money by offering the iPhone 4s to their subscribers, they will be pushed to step up their game,  provide better service, better pricing schemes, better customer service, and VALUE their loyal customers now more than ever. I was hoping they will say “#TODAYIWILL Value our existing clients by providing excellent customer service”. But I guess, that is off my Christmas Wish List. In fairness to Globe, the service is quite ok, they and launched a better pricing scheme for the iPhone 4s. But as for the other issues, I am not quite sure if there are improvements.

A Broken Record

I am writing again because as most of you know, there’s no point of debating with their outsourced customer service team. They can only give as much help and information as what Globe will provide them. No more, No less. If it is not in the handbook, they can’t make an exemption, bend the rules a bit, or decide on their own. In short – A waste of time! Its like talking to the wall! So, I just share this with the rest of the world and hope that this gets to the right people – again!

From Bad to Worst!

Monday, 12 December 2011: My Friend signed up her interest for the iPhone 4S via Globe’s registration page. She signed up for a Contract Renewal AKA Globe “Loyalty” Rewards Program.

Wednesday, 14 December 2011: She Got a confirmation email from Globe that She can pick-up the iPhone 4S at the Glorietta Business Center on Friday 16 December 2011 with Zero Cash Out! YEY!

Globe iPhone 4S Cash Out

Friday 16 December 2011: She went to Glorietta, as scheduled, to pick-up her iPhone 4S.

Now comes the Worst Part.

She arrived on time, excited. The whole Business Center was dedicated to those who will claim their iPhone 4S that day.  She was greeted and assisted by the business center’s friendly and enthusiastic representatives. My Friend presented them the confirmation email and they checked their guest list for her name. It was not there! Instead, they just checked the system using the transaction number in the email. They were able to find it BUT, SURPRISE! It was not as straightforward as she would have expected. First, she has to upgrade her plan to 1,799 then Pay the cash-out price of P4,800 – WHICH, IN CASE YOU DID NOT NOTICE, IS THE SAME CASH OUT AS FOR ALL NEW SUBSCRIBERS! HELLO GLOBE, THIS IS FOR A LOYALTY RENEWAL REMEMBER? Also, this was not previously communicated to her in any way. It was a total surprise.

Moving On, she asked why she had to upgrade and pay when in fact their letter explicitly says, P0.00 Cash Out. The Globe representative told her that “Ma’am, May tumawag po ba sa inyo para sabihin na mag-uupgrade po kayo ng plan, dapat po kasi may tatawag.” Isn’t it obvious na wala? Few minutes of Argument and that was it, My friend gave Up! There was no point arguing since this person from the business center is not part of the loyalty team who evaluates and approves these kind of requests. Super Pissed, My Friend declined the offer and did not renew her contract. Way to go Globe! Another Pissed Subscriber added to the looooong List!

Is this some kind of a Joke? A System Glitch? An Honest Mistake? Or a bad case of miscommunication? I don’t know what exactly happened here but it was a very unacceptable business practice! If this email was a legally binding contract, we would have gone to court! (OA MODE!) :) I am not sure if this was an isolated case of sending the wrong Information gone wrong but I do hope that no other Subscriber experienced the same. It was frustrating, Annoying, and not to mention very Deceiving!

We called the Globe Hotline, and they did not have any explanation either! See? USELESS!

Dear Globe, Why Do you have to make it so hard for your subscribers? Really? Why?!

Why did you let this happen? Why mislead a client? Again, this is for a Loyalty Contract Renewal, why did you offer the same Cash Out as the new Subscribers? Why Oh Why?! I know life is unfair, but do you really have to be on the unfair side? C’mon, you can do better than this!

Get a Grip! Smart is literally at your doorstep waiting for “Switchers”. Aren't you bothered at all?

As for me I have not received any feedback yet from the “Loyalty” Department regarding my registration. But based on this, Optimism is totally out of the picture. Number 1 in postpaid? Nah! Make that Number 1 in having the most number of pissed postpaid subscribers!

Phone Number Portability Act, we need you now!

Pardon the occasional rant. I’ll make it up to you guys in my next posts! :) I know it’s the season to be Jolly… But we just have to be heard! Merry Christmas Peeps, I hope you get your iPhone 4S the smoothest way possible, in time for the Holidays!

Sofitel Luxury Hotel, Spiral Buffet and Cash Cash Pinoy Vouchers: What Happens Next?


Since typhoon Pedring, majority - if not all of Sofitel’s operation have been suspended. Parts of Sofitel Luxury Hotel Manila, particularly Spiral Restaurant was badly affected by the recent typhoon. The hotel operation was suspended and Spiral was placed under renovation. If you are wondering what’s the status of the hotel and spiral, please read the following:

Spiral Buffet White, Dark, and Pistachio Chocolate Fountain

Yummy Chocolate Fountains of Spiral: Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, and Pistachio

Sofitel Hotel Rooms and Facilities:

Starting today 10 October 2011, Sofitel Manila’s Guest Rooms and Suites have been re-opened. They are now accepting check-ins and new reservations. Other Outlets and Facilities such as the Le Spa, The Poolside, Fever Luxe Lounge, Philippe Tordjman Le Salon and The Zen Institute are expected to resume operation on 30 October 2011. The Pool and Club Millésime are also, fully operational.

Spiral Restaurant:

Sofitel took this chance to renovate and upgrade the look and feel of Spiral Restaurant. According to some sources, Spiral will re-open early next year, but Cash Cash Pinoy recently sent an email that Spiral will be re-opening its doors by June 2012. Either way, it’s a long time and Christmas is just around the corner. So where’s the buffet?

Le Bar Sofitel 2

Sofitel will continue to serve “Special” Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner Buffets at the Le Bar which is located at the lobby of the hotel. It is a smaller venue and Mostly Spiral Restaurant Specialty Dishes will be served. Lunch Buffet at the Le Bar Costs P1,474 net and Dinner Costs P1,781. Prices are a bit cheaper than Spiral due to the limited number of dishes that will be served. Le Bar will be serving buffets starting today.

Le Bar offers an intercontinental buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Such favorites as Pan-fried Foie Gras, US Prime Rib and chocolate fountains will be available. Breakfast comes with free flowing champagne on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, while on Sundays, Champagne Brunch features up to 7 brands of champagne and sparkling wines.

Aside from Le Bar, the Snaps Sports Bar and Sunset Bar  will also be open to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Special a la carte menus have been prepared by Sofitel’s multi-awarded Executive Chef Marko Rankel of Spiral fame, and are available at Le Bar, Snaps Sports Bar and Sunset Bar.

Le Bar is relatively small compared to Spiral, It is best to reserve ahead of time.

Le Bar Sofitel 1

Spiral Cash Cash Pinoy Vouchers:

For those who availed of the recent Cash Cash Pinoy’s 50% on Spiral Promo. Good news! You can either get a  Cash refund or CCP credits or you can wait until the new Spiral Opens. Your voucher validity will be extended. Here is the official email from Cash Cash Pinoy regarding the unused Spiral Vouchers. (I used mine already)

Dear CashCashPinoy Member,

Due to the recent typhoon aftermath, the Sofitel Philippine Plaza has temporarily suspended operations in some of its facilities. Rest assured that both CashCashPinoy and Sofitel Philippine Plaza are always in pursuit of the best deals and services. Sofitel Philippine Plaza is already working on a better Spiral Restaurant experience for you, and the operations at the Spiral Restaurant are expected to resume in June 2012. With the creation of the new and improved Spiral Restaurant, our deal will be better than ever.

To show our deep appreciation for your continued support, we are providing you with 2 options:

1. Extend your voucher’s validity period until September 10, 2012 to avail of the new and improved Spiral Restaurant; or

2. Refund your purchase through cash or CashCashPinoy credits

After choosing one of the options above, kindly provide us your voucher number/s and contact number.

Should you prefer to refund your purchase, please let us know the mode of payment you used to complete your transaction as well.

To know more details about the state of Sofitel Philippine Plaza, please read their official press release statement here:

http://www.cashcashpinoy.com/page/sofitel-press-release.

If you have any questions or comments regarding this matter, please feel free to contact us at support@cashcashpinoy.com. Rest assured that we will get in touch with you again soon to follow-up your preferred solution option.

NOTE: Please disregard this message if you already availed of your voucher.

Sincerely,

CashCashPinoy Team

I suggest you hold on to your vouchers until next year because there is a big chance that the buffet price will be higher once the newly renovated Spiral Restaurant Opens.

Hope you find these information useful. For more information, you may Call Sofitel Manila at 02.5515555 or 02.5515610.

Hanggang Sa Muli! Paalam!

The Best Suman EVERRR!


I mean Really, you have got to try this! :)

One of my officemate brought this Suman this morning.

Agings Delight Ang Original Suman na Espesyal sa Bagong Ilog

I like the packaging, unlike other suman out there, this one was not oily! It was neatly packed in a clean banana leaf. I was expecting something regular, like a sticky rice suman ala Antipolo. But What’s inside was a surprise.

Agings Delight Ang Original Suman na Espesyal sa Bagong Ilog

It was a Super Special Suman. Halayang Ube and Leche Flan Wrapped in a Sticky Rice Suman! This suman tastes sooo good! No need for additional sugar, coco jam, or chocolate. It was delicious on its own. Althought it may look sweet because of the halaya and leche flan, but its actually not. The flavors were very harmonious, just right!

I love eating Suman, I like Halayang ube, and I love leche flan. So the three of them combined together… WOW!

By the way, this is Aging’s Delight Suman. Tagged as “Ang Original Suman na Espesyal sa Bagong Ilog”. They are located in Pasig Blvd. Bagong Ilog Pasig City. The minimum order is 50 pcs. The suman is priced at P12 each. You also need to pre-order a day before then drop by the next day for pick-up. Aside from suman, they also sell Halayang Ube, Leche Flan, and other Kakanin.

For more information on Aging’s Delight, You may call them at (02) 6710172 or visit their Facebook Page. I am not familiar with the place, if you are from Pasig, maybe you can shed some light on the location. :)

Again I love this Suman, You have to try it! This is perfect for the coming Christmas Season!! :)

I WANT MORE!

Hanggang Sa Muli! Paalam!

My new favorite chocolate! Dark Ferrero!


Yes, there is a Dark Ferrero Chocolate!

First of all, this is a test post using the new official blogger app for the iphone. I am not sure how this blog post will appear on my site. Hopefully, the formatting and image size are acceptable.

I like my chocolate dark. The darker the better. My favorite? Royce' 90% dark chocolate. Soo good! Any % higer and it will become pure cocoa (i think).

I don't like nuts in my chocolate. In fact I don't like nuts in chocolates, cakes, and ice creams. I eat nuts, plain nuts, peanut butter, and M&M's peanuts!

That is why, I don't like the original ferrero chocolate.

But To my surprise, they created a variant that I really like! Ferrero Dark! Lools like a ferrero only dark and peanut free!

Soo good! All dark chocolate lovers and peanut in everything haters must try it! :)

Now, how did this post turned out on my site?

Hanggang sa muli! Paalam!

Does Globe Really Value Your Loyalty?


I have been a Globe Handyphone Subscriber for almost 6 years now. In fact, I got my 70th billing statement this month. I love Globe’s services. Apart from some bumps along the way, I am still very satisfied with their service.  That is probably why we also switched to a Globe Landline and Broadband at home. Anyway, we all know that Globe offers Loyalty Rewards everytime you renew your contract with them every 2 years. For the last two renewals, I availed of the bill rebates package. Bill rebate is when they offer to slash a certain amount on your monthly bill for the next 24 months instead of giving you a new handset. For example, instead of Globe giving you a new Nokia C3 to renew your contract and lock you in for another 2 years, they will offer you P400 bill rebate for the next 24 months. So if you are in their plan P999, you only need to pay P599 a month but still enjoying your plan’s full features and benefits.

Globe Bill

I was very happy and satisfied with Globe’s Loyalty Plans, until recently.

A rainy Morning at Singapore… After our pleasant sleep at the Atrium Room, It’s time for breakfast!

Marina Bay Sands Breakfast

Like I mentioned on my previous post, breakfast is not included in the room reservation. So If you want to try their breakfast buffet, you need to go to Rise Restaurant at the lobby of Tower 1. The buffet price is $38++ SGD per person. To be honest, the price was surprisingly reasonable. Converted to peso it will only cost you around Php 1,600, which is the typical buffet price here in Manila.

I am not sure if you can reserve a table for the buffet. Judging from the long line of people waiting to be seated, I don’t think you can (I did not really tried calling for a reservation). I think they are on a first come first serve basis.

As expected the buffet was big. Mostly international dishes but there are also a lot of local and regional dishes being served. Salads, Breads, Sausages, Bacon, Omelets,Fruits, Jams, And A whole lot more! Name it, they have it!

Wing Hub at Metrowalk


Just a quick post in between my Marina Bay Sands Review Series..

We were in Metrowalk Ortigas last night and we were looking for a place to eat. There were the bars, there was Starbucks, but this brightly-lit establishment caught our attention – Wing Hub. Like I said the place looks new, brightly lit, and clean. There were bouquets on the entrance… Hmm this place must be new. We walked in, asked a waiter, and true enough it was only their second day.

The place was nice and clean. The highlight of the design was the big plane hanging on the ceiling.

There was not much in the menu. Just the Wings and a few other dishes like spaghetti and fish and chips. Time to eat!

Wing Hub07

We ordered Wings (of course) - 3 out of the 8 available flavors. Garlic Parmesan, Taiwanese, and of course Buffalo Wings. We also ordered rice and spaghetti on the side..

Wing Hub06

First was the Garlic Parmesan P195 (3pcs) + additional 10 pesos for this flavor.

Before anything, they have 2 kinds of dip, garlic mayo and bleu cheese. The dip does not come free with the wings. You have to pay P65 for it. I am not sure about the other wing shops but this is the first time that I experienced this.

Anyway, moving on to the wings, the garlic parmesan was pretty good. It was crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside. The wings were not that big though not that small either. Just the right size.. But it will surely look small if compared to Don Henrico’s Famous Buffalo Wings. Moving back, once you bite into it, you can really taste the parmesan and garlic, but together with the breading, it becomes a bit salty. Maybe a little rice will help..

Next was the Taiwanese Flavor P195 (3pcs)

Sweet, Nutty, Gingery – it tastes just like advertised. This flavor is something new. I love it.

Wing Hub10

Now, We saved the best for last, the classic Buffalo Wings P195 (3pcs)

Honestly, we were a bit disappointed with the Buffalo Wings. We were expecting this to be the best among the 3 but we were wrong. I don’t know, it did not taste like the buffalo wings that we were expecting. I think this was a recipe different from the classic? I am not sure… It was spicy, sweet, a bit sour, but not tangy. Don’t get me wrong, the flavor is OK its just that, for us, we did not experience classic the Buffalo Wing Taste that we used to love.

Among the Three, I enjoyed the Taiwanese Flavor.

Wing Hub08

The spaghetti was ok. It was meaty but not that flavorful. The serving was good enough to share between 2 people if you will still eat wings. The price? In their menu, there is no separate entry for the spaghetti. You may order Spaghetti with Chicken Tenders for P225. Last night, they ran out of chicken tenders and the waiter informed and asked us if it was ok. We said ok, just give us the spaghetti, we have the wings anyway. When we got the bill, the price of the spaghetti was still P225. So we asked if why were we charged for the whole amount when in fact there was no chicken tenders. Don’t you have a separate price for the spaghetti? So the waiter asked someone (I’m not sure if it was his manager) then he returned to us and said “sir less 25 pesos daw po pag walang chicken tenders”. With a smile, jokingly but half-meant with a hint of sarcasm that was involuntary I said, “ahh ok 25 lang? so 200 yung spaghetti na yun? pero sige ok na yun”. So the waiter, who apparently was able notice, went back to revise the bill and talked to his manager again. When we the bill arrived, they slashed 10% off on the total bill instead of the P25 that he mentioned earlier. I felt guilty, but nevertheless we paid for the discounted amount. Since they were new, maybe they really don’t have a separate price for the spaghetti yet. My Apologies.

If you are in Ortigas and want to try Wing Hub, they are located in Metrowalk.

Here is Wing Hub’s Menu:

Bottomline, you cannot go wrong with wings. You just have to find the right flavor for your taste :)

Hanggang Sa Muli! Paalam!
