Comfort + Good eats at the Frazzled Cook

On the busy lane of Tomas Morato lies Scout Gandia, a familiar route for me when I try to get to places I have to go. Since I have to go to events and my departure spot always ends up in Quezon City I have to be familiar with my turf. So I’ve seen The Frazzled Cook time to time but I’ve never been inside, I’ve seen it also as a familiar shooting spot for telerseryes and movies. I love the front door, its a big round door – reminds me of Lord of the rings. Its like a hint of New Zealand and Santorini vibe for me. (The place is just along Scout Gandia across PKDF)

I would like to apologize, If I don’t get to provide much needed photos. When the bloggers had a sit down with the owners, I was like able to like catch up with them a bit late because I came from duty and a lot of shenanigans happened but I was able to try and eat what they have to offer. I ended up not able to picture how it looks before being chowed down.  So maybe my honest words would be enough to make this review. And I lost all my files in my memory card too :(( Relieved I was able to save some photos.

Interior wise, very cozy and a mixture of different elements brought up together and it looks well put. They have function rooms to accommodate as well. Many decors from around the globe, that’s why frazzled cook is all about international cuisines made for the Filipino Palette. There are a lot from their menu to choose from and they have also a good selection of wines which I noticed. Nice to pair a glass of wine with their meat entrees. The menu is affordable to the Pinoy Foodie and you can bring friends and family to bond over with good food. -Not noisy and not crowded. On weekends they are open from 11 AM TO 1 AM and on weekdays 11 AM To 11 PM. https://www.zomato.com/manila/the-frazzled-cook-tomas-morato-quezon-city

Paella Negra

Pancake Ala Mode

Bestseller is their Paella Negra, it is topped with your favorite seafood and veggies- full of flavor in one dish. I tried their kebabs kinda tweaked it to somehow savor yet a little sweet (as I could remember – very Pinoy) and Salad served with lots of lettuce (which I notice which pinoys love to emphasize when it comes to their salad and a subtle dressing to be drenched with). I wasn’t able to try their pizza, but the bloogers said it really tasted good that’s why I ended up not able to try it because I came late and all was gone so It must be really that good. Well they also have a variety of desserts, they let us try the Pancake Ala Mode topped with pinoy vanilla ice cream- who says you can’t have breakfast for dessert. I still look forward to going back and bring my friends (I am all about food and endless chika).

Wisdom: Personally Inspire others

Sept 20, 2015

wisdomm

Today, since I have time on a snoozy Sunday and my official rest day from working out. So its the time of day, I update my blog with the shenanigans happening in my life. While waiting for real work, I probably make myself busy and useful. This is the thing about being currently unemployed – is that, ikaw lagi inaaya haha and never miss an opportunity!  – but weigh things that are important :))

Yes, but I am enjoying it. I am in no rush. I believe in God’s perfect timing. –pero may PRESSURE haha. 

I was a volunteer school nurse for 6 months (I promised to give back after passing the board exams, and I did! Thank God! -Nursing school wasn’t easy, seriously.), then ended my volunteer work when my sister arrived from Muscat, giving the priority that I should guide her. She is gonna start her freshie year at TUA as a pharma student.

 Well, I lived independently for 4 years, but I had my share of experiences – immature situations that I wished someone guided me that time. I was glad that I managed to put myself together and graduated without getting pregnant – my mother’s worries haha!. That’s why I decided to guide my sister for a while – I have some fears, yet I realize, my sister is different and I always pray she had the time of her life in college. Being a pre-med student wasn’t a roller coaster of all fun. Seriously I know, late nights reviewing, a lot of things of do but so little time feeling.

I’m a so called third culture brat, All my life was in OMAN- its a country beside Dubai okay? haha though raised very traditionally Filipino, life in Oman was different. ( I might be writing my personal wisdom on the perspective of OFW kids – Im still trying to put up a good write up about it)

Well going back, I have a thing of collecting wisdom from anybody – yeah ANYBODY, whether a stranger or my driving instructor HAHA.

What made me decide to put up a personal blog? maybe I got inspired from my friends and readers/followers.

This week I was able to receive a personal letter from a follower/reader. and I was so touch.

blog

I don’t get to hear what my readers/followers have to say about me – Some do message me and compliment but personally writing you a letter, is one thing. Very Touching (This is just a part of the letter)

People don’t know how much insecurities, I have. (The truth: I am not the pretty girl – with a nice body too, And it’s okay – I am more than that. I’ve had my series of mistakes, immature moments – NORMAL thing to go thru. I am not the most favored person – You can’t please everybody, there are times I don’t feel appreciated, kaya don’t invest too much emotions kasi haha! -Basta Just be KIND and be yourself ) That is a thing called LIFE. But it’s OKAY- looking forward to learn pa more haha. There are a lot of things going on my mind kasi HAHA

Thank youuu, You know who you are, made me think about how much I shouldn’t downgrade myself #Wisdom
Early this week too , I got an email from a group of Marketing Management students from Miriam college, one of them saw my post from Instagram and that’s how they found me. They invited me to be their thought leader. Seriously, ANO KAYA WISDOM mabibigay ko sa kanila? HAHA. 
They have a project on their Pinoy flavored truffles. They presented to me,  dark chocolate with peanut butter. Sayang, they had mikmik and chocnut flavors.

12033275_10207813341880389_1853973696_n
 Not bad for homemade it was neatly done and I love dark chocolate and peanut butter – taste almost like REESE. I gave them a 4/5. They asked me questions about the product and then asked me about blogging.
So I gave them tips.
1. How I started blogging and what made me decide to – I thank my college bestfriend, Charlene Ajose, Blogger. Who got me into this.
How I got “Krishgeek”- my bestfriend, Noof came up with the name during high school and I embraced it since then.
2. What are your social media sites?  I started with tumblr, then I bought a domain and put up my own site – A friend of mine suggested that I should have my own URL. Then Instagram was a good platform since i love to take pictures and make flatlays.
3. How to get invites to events – having connections and building a network. Then others would just email you.
Just keep on blogging.
4. How do you do Flatlays?
I’m not the best at it, there are others who take this game way seriously than I am HAHA!
Always have an eye for it and be prepared. – Kaya lagi ako may dalang powerbank for in case of rare moments and I always use my phone. my phone gets easily drained because I have net on my phone, 
Maybe because I used to do photography with my SLR  during my college days – so it might be an edge. But now I use my iPhone and its all about using the right app. My fave is AFTERLIGHT – you can download it on the appstore. I like to play with natural light and colors as well. Just experiment until you get the perf shot. Then comes the brainstorming for the perfect caption URGH! – I’ll be honest I am more of a public speaker than a writer. 
Those so far the things I could remember and I shared some of my personal wisdom.
I received an email from them yesterday,  that they got a 4.5 grade, So I was very happy for them!
So It has been a good experience, and I love be of great influence to others and my advocacy is just be yourself and like my mom’s says LOVE YOURSELF.
