TORI ICHI Yakitori and Bar: Our New Favorite Japanese Restaurant in the South

More Japanese restaurants are opening in the south and Tori Ichi Yakitori and Bar is a must try!

My husband and I love Japanese food. Whenever we would have a chance to eat out, it’s almost always in a Japanese restaurant. So when we discovered that there’s a new Japanese place in Festival Mall called Tori Ichi Yakitori and Bar, we were more than thrilled to check it out (beside the fact that it was Brian’s birthday).

Tori Ichi Yakitori and Bar is located at the ground floor of Festival Mall’s newest wing. The restaurant has a modern yet cozy vibe which I really like. I was already expecting that their menu would be limited to rice meals and grilled meat and veggies but to my surprise, they also have sashimi, sushi, maki, ramen and noodles.

A Mom’s New Best Friend: Mommy Manual on GMA News TV

Two weeks ago, I got invited to attend the media launch of the new parenting lifestyle show, Mommy Manual. I didn’t know what to expect during the event because it was my first time to attend a launch representing just myself (and this blog) but I was really excited. So this must be how it feels like to be legit blogger. Insert shy emoticon here.

My 2nd Anniversary of Being a Mom

Wow. Time does fly fast. Looking back at the pictures and videos we took, I can barely remember each day that passed by. But I miss the baby breath. I miss the coos. I miss the chubby phase. I miss the time when he would just lie down or roll over. A new phase has now officially begun. Owen is now two.

When Brian and I had Owen, I tried my best to research and to talk to people about being a parent. But I realized that it is not enough. Parenting is not just about stacking knowledge about certain do’s and dont’s. It doesn’t just stop after you’ve read a parenting book or after you’ve attended a parenting seminar. It’s a daily and lifelong commitment to your child. There are days when I would just smile and look at Owen and think that I must be doing a good job. But there are also tough days like when I would regret yelling at Owen just because he took out bowls, spoons and cups from the cabinet or when I would get mad at him because he played play-dough on the carpet. I really don’t like the tough days. It makes me feel bad about myself. Oh, the ups and downs of being a parent.

But I do learned a lot. It’s amazing how a child can teach me so many things about life. Things that I’ve forgotten. Things that I needed to accept. Things that need time.
