Marvel-ous Haul {Captain America and The Amazing Spider-Man 2}

Amazing! Like the rest of the world, we're now a big fan of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I love the depth of the story, the charismatic characters (Chris Evans, for the win!), and the fun chemistry to boot, between the two leads (Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanoff). Being a geek, I also read more about Sharon Carter, played by Emily VanCamp of Revenge, pleasant surprise there. So it seems that it will get pretty more exciting in the Marvel universe. We can't wait for the rest of the Marvel movies.

Anyhow, back to our haul, you ought to know that this shopaholic-stage-mom can be pretty devoted to certain stuff, like how I was with Lightning McQueen of Disney Cars. So yesterday, fresh from beautiful hangover of Captain America, we went shopping. Since son need a wardrobe update for our upcoming trip, we got him a whole lot of Marvel-ous stuff from The SM Store in Megamall.

Captain America Graphic Tees. How much do we love Captain America? Let me count thee. Still, we like things simple and elegant. Captain America's shield beautifully captivates us! So yes, we got our first ever family shirts. I got mine and hubby too. Aloha! 
I like more the material and the designs of the shirts in The SM Store teens' section than in the Kids' section. We got the smallest size available for our son.

Spider-Man's merchandise are pretty amazing too. We got him a couple of shirts and a zip-up hoodie light jacket.

There's an ongoing promotion in the Teens' wear of the The SM Store in SM Megamall, get a raffle ticket for every purchase of a Amazing Spider-Man 2 shirt. Prizes are movie passes.

I will not keep you on your Sundates. Enjoy the rest of the weekend! Cheers! ^_^

Miles & More {Star Alliance} Flight Awards

Sometime ago, I posted about my hubby's Miles & More Frequent Traveler Membership updates. From then to now, he earned reasonable miles to actually qualify redeeming corresponding flight awards. By the way, Miles & More is Lufthansa's Airline Program. His member airline was Lufthansa just because our first long haul flight together was in Germany.

Lufthansa is a member airline of Star Alliance. Although, we're members of several, if not most, airline programs, just because at some point, we cannot choose our flights, especially if they're business-related travel, and for the personal travel, we consider promo fares vs. loyalty to a specific airline program (because of the high travel tax rates to claim flight awards). Sad but practical. Anyhow, we're traveling again in a couple of weeks, and the miles he accumulated were enough to get us domestic, round trip flight awards from Los Angeles (LAX) to Chicago (ORD). Oh happier days! *LoL And for what amount? Read on to find out, you'll be pleasantly informed.

Windy City, here we come!  Miles & More {Star Alliance} Round Trip Flight Awards. Los Angeles and Chicago via United Airlines. 
In Manila, to claim flight awards from Miles & More, you have to visit its office in Phinma Plaza, Rockwell Plaza, adjacent to Nestle.

Now for the fun part, LAX to ORD round trip flight is considered a domestic travel flight award. So it costed us fewer miles per person, and only (dun, dun, duuuun!)....$5 each. Winner! My hubby's similar flight last time, just because it was book a week before, costed us $600+. Today's rate via United Airlines is about $350+ per person. Nice, right? The only downside is United Airlines, unlike Southwest Airlines, which we also took last time, and will also be taking this time to another leg of our domestic travel, doesn't offer free checked-in baggage allowance. So for sure, we have a baggage for checked-in, so it's additional $25 each first checked-in baggage. Oh well! You can't win them all!

In fairness, Philippine Airlines (PAL) will always be closer to my heart, but my goodness, it's so hard, and so costly to claim flight awards! So, no thanks! So for the mean time, we're mighty compelled to keep loving Miles & More/Star Alliance, I wouldn't complain since if I'll have my way, it's Asiana all the way, baby! ^_^ Cheers! ^_^

Lufthansa Miles & More office is located at Mezzanine Level, Phinma Plaza 39 Plaza Drive, Rockwell Center, 1200 Makati City, Metro Manila, Philippines. Contact number +63 2 5806400.

Charming Café Latte Art at Subspace Coffee House

Annyeong! ^_^ Sweetness. I finally found this much-raved Korean vibe cafe. I remember reading about it, but I didn't deliberately look for it, until I realized that it's so accessible to us. Possibly walking distance to some, but not to us. Hah. Anyhow, there's a pay parking area adjacent to it, so that solves it.

So on one of my date day with my son, we went for a visit. We were pleasantly surprised. It's a busy place to begin with, as it was almost jam packed, but once we were able to settle down, we felt the very inviting ambiance. Everyone is just taking their sweet time relishing their drinks and food, plus taking selfie or selca amid the quaint interiors. Aha moment! I guess that's where the 'subspace' concept comes alive, the place is a delightful escape amid the hustle and bustle of Ortigas Center living.

Iced and Hot Purple Potato Latte. Super cute.  Bear Love Latte Art. Yum! Kyeopta! ^_^ It's purple yum, or Ube, right? Or is it kamote? But anywhow, if you love ube jam or cake, this will be a delightful treat. 
Such a cozy place to dine and unwind. There's an extensive menu of food and drinks to explore. Various K-Pop merchandise are also available for sale. 
My Date. 
While waiting, doting on Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for some play time. More pictures, I just can't take enough photos of him.  Plus the place showcases unique furniture pieces and designs.This side please, the other way. So many possible #photooftheday #pixoftheday OoTD: Giordano
We fell in love with the Cucumber Kani Croissant. We're stuffed. Since I was on a special diet then (*Lol), I had to miss out on the latte. So today, with my friend, I went back and fell in love with café latte...the drink and the artwork. I can't wait for more.

I love coffee, tea, and almost everything in between. Plus, I'm a big Hallyu fan, and the place is very, very Seoul-ful. Yay! There's so much more to try in this charming coffee house. I usually see leaves, tulips, and hearts on my latte. With the higher level of intricacy devoted in the in every Subspace Coffee drinks, bear, and what have you, I'm sold! Teehee! ^_^

Subspace Coffee is located at Unit 103, GF Grand Emerald Tower, F. Ortigas Jr. Road, Ortigas Center, Pasig 1606

If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind.
