Holy Cow Steak Ranch and American Grill

Being a food junkie that i am, i always like to check out new places to eat. Walking from Mega A to B back and forth looking for the perfect outfit to wear on an event made me even more hungry. As I walked thru Megamall atrium. Holy Cow! I saw this restaurant named after the expression I uttered. It offered a western-feel ambiance that made wanna watch this 1952 movie High Noon when I get home. The resto offered mainly steak to which you can choose how its served - well done, medium or rare. The key to enjoying a good meal in a newly found resto is to ask their "best sellers". But since it was just 10 am, the resto is still preparing for lunch. So I only ordered what is ready to serve rather than letting my hungry stomach wait for another 30 minutes.

(check out their menu below)

Here's what we had:

Lonestar Grilled Pork Chop P265

Two pieces tender pork chop delicately  marinated and grilled. Served with gravy. Undeniably flavorful. First-class. First-rate! 

Fillet Mignon Steak [5 oz] P290

An ultimate dish made from the most tender cut of beef that is mouth feeding. Rounded with bacon, flavored with scrumptious marinade and spices for a perfect taste good dining!

To top it all, I strongly recommend Root Beer Float P85 as your beverage.

Blue Bloods: When Law Means More Than Blood Ties

Check out Southeast Asia’s No. 1 international channel - AXN, as it proudly brings you the newest TV Series "Blue Bloods". I was lucky to get an invite to see the first in Asia to premiere Blue Bloods and a special press screening that was held last Thursday Feb 17, 2011 at the Newport Ultra Cinema at 6PM with my co bloggers. This latest offering is by the same award-winning producers of hit TV series The Sopranos, Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green; and the creator that gave audiences iconic TV series Charlies’ Angels, Starsky and Hutch and Fantasy Island, Leonard Goldberg. 

Praised as “one of the season’s five best new shows” by Entertainment Weekly, Blue Bloods has indeed lived up to its promise. The series debut in the United States was CBS’ highest rated Friday night premiere in 6 years! Critics universally praise Blue Bloods for its compelling characters, brilliant writing and engaging plot lines. In fact, the show has done so well for CBS that its shift from Friday to Wednesday nights has been a stellar success, topping its best ratings since its premiere!

A drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement, Blue Bloods marks multi-award winning Tom Selleck’s (Magnum P.I., Jesse Stone) return to prime-time TV. The stellar cast of young and seasoned actors include Donnie Wahlberg (Righteous Kill, Band of Brothers), Broadway luminary Len Cairou (Damages, The West Wing) and Bridget Moynahan (Coyote Ugly, Sex and the City).

Frank Reagan (Selleck) is the New York Police Commissioner and heads both the police force and the Reagan brood.  He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry (Cairou), during his stint as commissioner.  A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son Danny (Wahlberg), a seasoned detective and Iraqi War veteran who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases.  

The sole Reagan woman in the family, Erin (Moynahan), is a New York Assistant District Attorney and newly single parent, who also serves as the legal compass for her siblings and father. Jamie (Will Estes, Reunion, U-571) is the youngest Reagan, fresh out of Harvard Law and the family's "golden boy”; however, unable to deny the family tradition, Jamie decides to give up a lucrative future in law and is now a newly minted cop. Jamie's life takes an abrupt turn when he is asked to become part of a clandestine police investigation even his father knows nothing about and which might have been related to the death of his brother, Joe.

Indeed, what sets Blue Bloods apart from the run-of-the-mill cop drama is its focus on blood ties and the clashes that inevitably arise from having a family of cops and a daughter as a prosecutor. As Tom Selleck shared in an interview, “One of the key elements of the show almost every week is a family dinner. Frank is a patriarch of a family… They’re Irish and they’re Catholic and they argue a lot at family dinner but it seems to be one of the favourite parts of the show.”

Blue Bloods’ balanced combination of nail-biting detective drama and family struggles offers rich material rarely handled so well by both a cast of actors and writers. It invites you to fall in love and admire the men and women who struggle in and out of themselves to maintain order in New York City and their families. Sometimes, law enforcement means more than blood ties.

Blue Bloods debuts with a double-episode premiere on:
Tuesday, 22 February 2011 at 9.05PM (PH)
Subsequent episodes at 10PM
First & Exclusively on AXN

Clark Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Festival 2011 Photos

Guys, here are my photos about my recent weekend trip at the Clark Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Festival 2011 last Saturday, February 12, 2011 in Clark Pampanga. I had a hard time taking these photos because I didn't bring a tripod with me and with the camera settings matter too gave me a burden but I did have good shots though. 

(click image for a larger view)

The festival  was attended by a lot of people from around the country and I would have to say that I really enjoyed the following: Kite Flying, Exhibits, Air Shows, different kinds of light Aircraft, busy people and most specially the Hot Air Balloons! All of us who went we're lucky because the weather participated, the sun didn't show up while we we're in the field, it was a cloudy setting.

I hope you like the pictures I took. Enjoy!!!
