Coco Ichibanya in the Philippines!

The biggest curry chain CoCo Ichibanya has arrived on our shores! It's currently making waves as they opened their first branch a little over a week ago at the Estancia Mall in Pasig. From the time that we arrived at 11:30 am until we left at around 2:00 pm, people just kept coming and going.

Finally Backing up my iPhone to External Drive!

After a long time of wondering how I can solve the backing up issue of my iPhone 6+ 128Gb on my MacBook Air 128Gb (YES, backing up is impossible unless I delete everything!), I was finally able to execute what I had been wanting to do the past few weeks. 
Tutorial, Macbook, Air, 128 Gb, Iphone, Backup, External, Drive, Hard, Moving, Redirecting,

It took a while for me to follow online references, so here are my straight-to-the-point, no-fail steps:

FOLDER EDITING AND CREATION
1. Open Finder folder
2. Click the Go tab, and press the Option key. You will then see the Library folder pop-up when you do this.

Go Tab without the Library Folder

3. Select Library
4. Find the Application Support folder then open it. 
5. Find the MobileSync folder then open it. There you will see the Backup folder where all device backups are stored.
6. Rename this Backup folder to "Backup2"
7. Insert your External Drive
8. Add a folder named ios_backup
9. Nest a folder under it named Backup

Now we will create a symbolic link in Mac's Terminal app to lead the Backup to your external drive. Make sure iTunes is closed.

SYMBOLIC LINK CREATION
1. Open Finder folder
2. Click the Go tab and select Utilities
3. Find the Terminal application and open it.
Note: before proceeding, make sure you have these two in place:
- no "Backup" folder under Library/Application\ Support/MobileSync/Backup/ -we have renamed this to Backup2 earlier
- ios_backup/Backup folder has been created in your External Drive
4. Open your Notes application or similar text editing application to prevent any missed spacing or incorrect spelling.
5. Copy and paste this: 

ln -s /Volumes/EXTERNALDRIVE/ios_backup/Backup ~/Library/Application\ Support/MobileSync/Backup

6. Edit the word EXTERNALDRIVE to the name of your External Drive
7. Copy the entire text and paste it in the Terminal App

Tutorial, Macbook, Air, 128 Gb, Iphone, Backup, External, Drive, Hard, Moving, Redirecting,

8. Press the Return/ Enter key. There should not be any texts saying "drive/ folder/ link does not exist". If this appears after pressing Return/ Enter within the Terminal app, review steps 6-9 under FOLDER EDITING AND CREATION if you missed anything.
9. Exit the Terminal App. You should notice a new Backup folder created within the MobileSync folder with a small arrow indicating that it is a symbolic link.

9. Open iTunes, click the iTunes tab and select Preferences

10. Go to the Devices tab and make sure that this is clicked:
Tutorial, Macbook, Air, 128 Gb, Iphone, Backup, External, Drive, Hard, Moving, Redirecting,

11. Proceed with clicking the "Back Up Now" button.
12. Sweet success!

La Cabrera Grillado and Bar

For Valentine's day this year, we tried out La Cabrera of Makati. Located where Lolo Dad's used to be, we had to try out their well-known-for beef.
For starters, we had the bountiful caesar salad. We didn't get to enjoy much of this because we were interrupted with the serving of the main dish! This kind of ruined the supposed-to-be intimate dining moment.

The main dish: Rib eye steak with almost unlimited variety at unlimited amounts of sides! The beef was as good as we expected: flavorful and fragrant.

We added this must-have item: Provoleta con Jamon Crudo, Tomassecos y Albahaca (Grilled provolone cheese with parma ham, sun-dried tomatoes and basil). This was the star of the night. It had to be eaten fast to prevent the cheese from hardening back up. No problem with that, since it was so darn good!

We were provided with a tower of lollipops for a sweet ending.

Busog! I'm surely going back for the steak and cheese!
