Reebok Pink Kicks

One month of working out in the gym is done and so here I am blogging about this pair of shoes I bought specifically for indoor training. I blame Solenn Heussaff, Aubrey Miles, and Ina Raymundo for this. If not because of their gym photos and all the food diet photos they post in IG, coupled with an inspiration to go back to my old size and being fit, I swear I wouldn't trade waking up early everyday with an hour of sweaty workout. No regrets here though. I already shrunk a little so handed down some my clothes, dresses, t-shirts, and jeans, to my cousins because they no longer fit well. Going back to these new pair of kicks.. thanks to my hubby for spoiling me. This is my most expensive pair of shoes.. ever!













The sole is so astig. I love it to bits. I feel so energized wearing it. I was not supposed to buy this pair. However, after checking other brands and style, I realized they are the lightest, the most comfy, and the awesomest girly sneakers I saw at the store.

I am not sure about the exact model name of this shoes. I believe it's Reebok Dual Compound since that's what it says in the packaging. What I love a lot about this shoes is that they're designed for in studio training, perfect for indoor gym activities like zumba or aerobics.

As we all know, Reebok is a very popular brand when it comes to sports shoes. It is comparable with Nike and Adidas. On my first day at the gym, I shared to one of the trainers that it is enough for me procrastinating and that my new shoes needs to be tested. She exclaimed, "Why? Is it Reebok, " and I nodded yes.

I think I will buy Reebok again in the future, perhaps, a matching pair with my daughters. Haha.

BLE: Real Greek Food

This is not good. I am currently on a No Junk Food Challenge and a little strict diet (yeah, just a little) but writing this entry makes me think of something to eat in a middle of the night. Nevertheless, it's not everyday that you see a place serving affordable authentic Greek/Turkish meal. And, for a fact, I seldom feature restaurants here in my blog so I guess it's about time.

Hubby told me about this newly-opened restaurant in BF Paranaque owned by a Greek-Turkish couple. They are still on a soft-opening but they're open pretty much everyday and also sell at Legazpi Market on Saturdays and Salcedo Market on Sundays. They serve starters, main meals, dessert, and tea. I believe they are yet to improve their menu. Anyhow, this write up will be just an honest review of a dry-run visit.








The facade of Ble is typically Greek in style and color, you know, white and blue paint and furniture, nazar boncuk (evil eye talisman), and some flowers and plants.





The interior of the restaurant has the same Greek theme. On the left side of the counter is the grill where they cook meat and breads. Those hanging lamps and those nazar boncuk on the wall remind me of the Turkish Marmara region so much.





This is the dip platter which consists of hummus, tzatziki, olives, and baba ganush served with pita. My favorite from this platter is baba ganush. It tasted really good. So far, the best baba ganush I ever had. I hope they improve the bread and hummus though. The first was chunky and the latter was oily.





Hubby ordered 3 souvlaki or pita wraps. He liked it so much. I also had a bite and yeah, it tasted better than any Turkish or Greek restaurants I know in the Metro. The mousaka which looks similar to a vegetable lasagna was filling. Lastly, we had loukmades, a pastry made of fried dough in syrup and cinnamon, for dessert.





Look at the smile on my face.





And hers.





Ble's dry run menu.



We paid less than P1,000 for our meal. Overall, our morning drive all the way there and back was worth it. Very much worth it that hubby and I even wished we live in the same neighborhood so we can easily order and enjoy our favorite food. If ever there's a holiday or else a Manny Pacquiao fight, we might as well drive to BF Homes again and dine at Ble.
