Old Spaghetti House Review

Posted on December 15, 2008  in Reviews

As I mentioned in the About page, I will try to post some food/resto reviews so here it goes.

I accompanied Maui in her window shopping spree last weekend :-). Before we do the actual “gruelling” task of shopping, I need to make sure I have enough energy. That means FOOD. We want to have Razon’s Halu-halo since its one of our favorite in Robinson’s Galleria foodcourt, but decided that we will have it later after the shopping. We decided to try Old Spaghetti House (I’ve never been inside this restaurant although I remember they have one branch in Libis). I ordered Gambasetti, she ordered the pasta meal with a long filename. It was Golden Crusted Chicken Ham and Cheese with Angel Hair Pomodoro (told you it was long). I liked the Gambasetti 🙂 As the name implies its a mix of Gambas (shrimps) and spaghetti. It’s a little bit spicy for me but combined with the pasta meal, we really enjoyed our treat :-). The price is also OK, not to pricey for a pasta resto. We’ll definitely try other dishes there some other time.

Until next chowtime :@)!

Eraserheads Reunion Concert CD Review

Posted on December 4, 2008  in Reviews

I finally got hold of the Eraserheads Reunion Concert CD today. Raven and I bought it from Odyssey for PHP 305. The cd is manufactured and distributed by Sony BMG. I’m listening to the CD as I write this blog entry and I’m sweetly reliving the Reunion concert moment again 🙂

The CD quality is great!!! Definitely its not similar to previously posted videos in youtube wherein the sound quality is kinda basag na. It includes my personal favorites: Sembreak, Alapaap, Hey Jay, Kamasupra, and Kaliwete. It also captures some of the funny quotes from the Band (The last 10 seconds countdown, the good night greetings of Ely after the first song, The Merry Christmas greets before the Fruitcake etc). I am just wondering why it did not capture the “Group Hug” chants of the crowd 🙂

Edit: Between tracks 9 and 10, you hear the group hug chants.

I may be out of the loop in the music industry nowadays but its worthy to note that inside the CD case is a small leaflet that contains the download instructions for videos, mp3 and ringback tones for mobile phones. Each download ranges from PHP15 to PHP50 (wow nice biz for SonyBMG and the telcos :-p). It also contains the YouTube/SonyBMG PH URL (which I will try to visit later tonight)

To all the Eraserheads fans out there, grab your copy now (in case you haven’t yet). 300+ bucks for 15 songs, its worth it.

And whats in it for me and Raven? Well… we are waiting for the Part 2.
