Car_Battery_1

The Century MF12 which i previously blogged about lasted me from Mar 2009 till May 2013, ie 4 years and 2 months. Thereafter i used Panasonic which lasted me from May 2013 till Aug 2015, ie only 2 year 3 months.

Car_Battery_2

Now i am trying out a new brand called “Start” which is supposedly under Century Motolite, priced at RM170, after deducting RM10 for trading in old car battery, let’s see how long this last. Century battery will be slightly more expensive at RM180-190 after deducting RM10 trade-in old battery.

“Start” brand is supposedly under Century Motolite Battery as well

Manila_1

took the 10:30am flight from KL to Manila, reaching Manila at 2:30pm, making it a 4-hour flight. Above is first dinner with fresh food bought from the supermarket – salmon belly, the cheapest cut but tasty nonetheless, don’t seem to get such cut here in Malaysian supermarket + maya maya fish (snapper) with simple roasted vegetables (red pepper + green pepper + green zucchini + tomato drizzled in oil, sea salt and black pepper) Yum~

Manila_5

with washer and dryer! No more bringing loads of dirty clothes back Manila_6

Vikings in SM Megamall, seems to be very popular among the locals, look similar to our Jogoya, buffet style food. SM Megamall is the largest mall in Phillipines, and 3rd largest in the world.

Manila_7

my first meal in the mall, salmon sinigang soup in food court, soup is sourish like chinese salted vege soup, quite appetizing

Manila_8

saw this hand sanitizer machine in the toilet

Manila_9

they have Crate and Barrel here, an American chain store selling housewares

Manila_10

Dinner in Linguini Fini, they have branch in Central, Hong Kong, Manila, and recently open a new outlet in Hanoi, their food is really nice especially the complementary bread, could be the best bread i have tasted, the bread is not served warm, but room temperature but still tasted really good

Manila_11

antipasti and Insalata menu

Manila_12

pasta menu

Manila_13

pappardelle “Nose to Tail Bolo” pork testa, veal and oxtail ragu with parmigiano Reggiano Manila_14

crispy calamari salad with mixed greens, pickled chili, red onion, cucumber, roasted lemon citronette, PHP 255

Manila_17

3rd day in Manila, i cooked garlic fried rice for breakfast

Manila_18

went Mall of Asia which is next to sea, for tea time, we had dessert in Lugang

Manila_19

Mango Supreme with mango pudding, fresh mango, coconut and mango ice cream Manila_20

the mango supreme is satisfying enough although the coconut ice cream tasted like vanilla ice cream :S the drinks however are horribly sweet especially my fruit tea punch, couldn’t finish it

Manila_21

nice blue sky in MOA eye, looks like we are on the cloud, just next to Mall of Asia

Manila_22

another view, just next to sea, but can’t see it from the above pic and the pic was taken while seated

Manila_23

SM Mall of Asia, another mall under the SM group

Manila_24

since it is too early for sunset and we already finished browsing in MOA, thus decided to walk around 20-3o minutes to an area called Dampa where lots of fresh seafood are sold, just buy the seafood from some really persistent and slightly pushy seafood vendors and bring it to be cooked in one of the nearby restaurant at a charge, we bought seafood among the 3 rows of seafood vendors and chose Cuzina Seafood Haus as the cooking charges looks to be reasonable

Manila_25

cooking charges etc menu

Manila_26

view from inside the restaurant, the seafood vendors are just few steps away

Manila_27

the prawn are really fresh, cooked chilli garlic style, the sauce is too strong tasting for me though, the clams in ginger soup style which is quite good

Manila_28

lapu lapu fish steamed in soy sauce, ie chinese style, fish is very fresh Manila_29

one of the seafood stall, some of the seafood seller are very pushy though, especially the crab section, they are literally holding out live crab out to us from both side of the lane when we walking past those stalls, quite scary.
