I was kind of excited with today's plurkfiesta because I already had the chance to appreciate Orange Bistro and be proud and love GenSan more!
For some reason, I came late and just sat beside Ikang. I was also able to meet Gheltac, sir Daxi, mommy Iceah and Sir Blogie, a Davao based blogger, personally. Minutes later, food was served and of course, Kyawster, sir Hecky and sir Bariles never miss PHOTO OPs!
The first food they served was the Nachos topped with meaty sauce. Then everything just followed and that spacious table was filled with nothing but food. They also served Angel's Hair, Fried Dumplings, Burger and Chicharong Bulaklak. I've already tried everything that they served except for Angel's Hair. The pasta of Angel's Hair is smaller than the usual pasta we buy and it is topped with cheese and milk, I guess, and surrounded with sausage. I so love it's spiciness. The dumplings, burger, chicharong bulaklak and nachos were good too. It's just that I never heard of Angel's Hair before. The food was paired with an Iced Tea which tasted good too.
Before we ended that blissful afternoon, we had a group picture first with the staff of Orange Bistro. We all then went to our different destinations. Rammyboi headed to a student's party, others went home already, some passed by the mall first, sir Blogie went to the hotel accompanied by sir Bariles and sir Gilbert too, I think. Tanchi, Gheltac, Ikang and I headed to Chill and Surf and played RockBand for a while.

Thanks to blogging, I found a family where boredom is not in their vocabulary. (:

Just had my second Plurk Fiesta with SoCCSKSarGen Bloggers yesterday. Though Rammyboi, Tanchi and I came late because of some school stuffs, we still had a good time with the other plurkers.
GenBrew, short term for General's Brew, is a coffee shop located between Landbank and Kristan Bookstore along Pioneer Avenue owned by Kin and Letty Du.
It was somehow literally a "fiesta" for there were quite a number of bloggers who came. To name them, Bariles, Gilbert, Tanchi, Rammyboi, Samara Fae, Leonard, Hecky, Rosilie, Tammy Rose, Rain, Millet, Jinky, Myla, and the new-found-blogger, Donna Mae were present. For everyone's information, Donna Mae is the owner of the Envy Me Salon located at Pioneer Avenue.
Their cold coffee, forgot the name though, was good. They serve rice meals, pasta, sandwhiches and hot coffee too. And yea, bloggers never miss FREE WI-FI!
TRIVIA: GenBrew is the only coffee shop that serves Kafe Balos or Kape Alamid which is the most expensive coffee in the world which come from the droppings of the Philippine civet, a mammal which can be found in the forests and coffee plantations of South Cotabato.

My first plurkfiesta with SoCCSKSarGen Bloggers ........ was FUN. :))
Before we, Rammyboi, Tanchi and I, headed to Blugré where we'll have our PlurkFiesta, we first ate our dinner.
I thought at first, Blugré is an international coffee shop. It sounds like one. But to my surprise, it's a Filipino bred coffee shop. The owner Gatchi Gatchalian told us that it is really a "tubong Pinoy"coffee shop. It's good to know that Filipinos can also build an establishment as good as this one. Blugré is located at the JMP Building (Jinky and Manny Pacquiao).
I must honestly say, the place was perfect. I love the ambience. The place is airconditioned and the lights were relaxing.
Since I was full that time, I didn't order anything, not even coffee. So, I really can't make a review about the food and coffee. But I promised to be back there and taste what seems to be delicious in their menu. :))
