🍴 Lunch at Parmigiano Pizzeria Ristorante

Hello lovely peeps, this post is a bit late, i know, i know. Anyway, a few months ago we grabbed lunch at Parmigiano Pizzeria Ristorante before attending the classical  play Annie at the Newport Performing Arts Theater. What can I say, beautiful casts of actors and children showing off their impressive talents. Great show!

We came across Parmigiano when we wandered around the mall looking for a place that was not crowded with diners. So glad we found this awesome restaurant! We had Pesto Gamberi single (P475), Ragu Alla Bolognese single (P395), Tono Al Sesamo (P690), Tre Saslsiccia (P520), Mango Shake (P140), Caramel Macchiato (P130) and Parmigiano Blend (P120).

Parmigiano Pizzeria Ristorante is an Italian restaurant offering an array of authentic Italian cuisine. Everything we ordered  was delicious. We super liked their pizza that was baked in a brick oven fired. And oh, did I mention the restaurant also has extensive selection of red and white wines! I'd definitely go back and try some of their dishes.

N Seoul Tower

Namsan Seoul Tower was built in 1969 as Korea's first integrated transmission tower beaming television and radio broadcasts across the capital. The 236.7 m (777 ft) tower sits on the Namsan mountain (243m or 797 ft). Since opening to the public in 1980, it has become a much-loved Seoul landmark.

Namsan Cable Car lower station

We took the Namsan cable car leading up to the Mt. Namsan and then walked up a flight of stairs to the N Seoul Tower. The car has a capacity of 48 people. I guess we went there during peak hours because the line was long and a bit crowded inside the cable car. Despite of that amazing 360º panoramic view over the entire city of Seoul greeted us all as we continued to ascend.

Just to give you an idea here's a video from theseoulguide.com

If you're a romantic one you would probably love this "Love Locks". (>'o’)> ♥ <('o’<)

We were able to go to Alive Museum located at the lobby of N Seoul Tower. We immersed ourselves in the world of optical illusions paintings.

The tower's main attractions include multi-colored digital art projected onto the tower at night, a digital observatory, a roof terrace, thousands of love locks, and the Haneul (Sky) Restroom. N Seoul Tower's have made it a popular place to unwind for locals and tourists alike.

Anya Hindmarch Luxury Leather Stickers at Adora

I dragged HB to Adora in Greenbelt Makati and went ahead to Anya Hindmarch Sticker Shop section on the second level. I was delighted to discover there were lots of stickers to choose from. These are cute permanent self-adhesive pull off back embossed stickers for handbag, purse, luggage or phone.

And finally, I got the Rainbow Heart Sticker in Pale Gold with the AH  logo detail for Php 3,550 which was my intention to begin with. It's a little bit expensive though for a small sticker but worth it as it offers something a little bit different with your typical bag. It's more like embellishing or  personalizing your own bag.

Created in collaboration with Charlotte Stockdale of Chaos Fashion, the Anya Hindmarch Sticker Shop is a collection of luxurious leather  stickers. These are designed to adhere any surface permanently, so once they have been attached they cannot be removed.

Seoul: Lotte World Adventure Theme Park

Lotte World is a major theme park in Seoul. It is divided into an Indoor Adventure theme, and an outdoor theme park called Magic Island where visitors can access through a connecting passageway on the 2nd floor.

The best way for us to get to Lotte World was to take a taxi. The driver dropped us off in front of Lotte Department Store where the theme park was located.

The park's atmosphere was very relaxed and lots of locals mostly a group consisting of families hanging out.

The park features different rides including the Conquistador, the Gyro Drop, the French Revolution, the World Monorail, the Flume Ride and Camelot Carousel. But we focused mainly on Aeronauts Balloon Ride where we hopped in a balloon and had the best mid-air observation route inside the Lotte World theme park. ◕ ◡ ◕

HB went into the Tomb of Horror where he had to pass through the graveyard bridge with zombies and dark maze. I decided not to go with him as I'm always petrified when I enter into spooky dens and haunted houses theme. But according to HB it wasn't scary at all. Hmm, I doubt it. ಠ_ಠ

To recharge our energy we had our lunch at La Paloma, a Mediterranean grilled food restaurant.

We had a good time at the Marvelous Art Museum exhibiting full of 3D illusion photos.

There are also parades, stage shows, an ice rink, a lake (outdoor park) and a folk museum on the 3rd floor.

Lotte World first opened in 1989, and it is the largest indoor theme park in the world. The park is also holding various festivals throughout the year.
