Golden Cowrie Filipino Kitchen at S'Maison

Golden Cowrie Filipino Kitchen, under Cebu Golden Restaurant, Inc, is a premier restaurant from Cebu serving regional authentic Filipino dishes. They had concentrated its expansion to Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao in the past few years. They also opened two new restaurant ventures namely: Hukad and Salinas. ***Hukad's menu is relatively cheaper than of Golden Cowrie.

The menu's highlight is the Cebu's famous lechon. They also offers other local Filipino dishes and true Filipino hospitality.

For 33 years, this restaurant have been part of families' celebrations. So last November 8, we dined on this famous restaurant to celebrate my sister's birthday. We headed on their S'Maison branch beside SM Mall of Asia.

» Ambiance and Decor «

When I first arrived at Golden Cowrie, I was instantly "wow" on the restaurant's interiors. Not only I love the Manila Bay view, but the ambiance was making me "pack up and head over to Cebu". 

» Food and Price «

Based on the banner outside, the famous dishes are Cebu's Lechon Belly, Pocherong Katag, Adobong Talong, Pinaupong Manok and so on.

Our order was Seafood Kare-kareBack Ribs (sorry if the photo is not good because we started to eat back ribs before I took the photo of it.), Whole Fried Chicken and Grilled Bangus.

Don't be surprised because we only paid less than Php 2,000 for all of these dishes inclusive of service charge and taxes. How did it happen? I will share it on my next post. So tune up!

» Overall «

When you're looking for an affordable feast, then it should be Golden Cowrie all the way! You'll be rest assured of the quality of every dish and its superb service.

I would like to go back here with my family. :)

How about you? Have you tried this restaurant? How did your dining experience go? If not, would you like to try them?

BeautyMNL Crazy Christmas Sale + Unlimited Free Shipping!!!

Yesterday (November 27), I took advantage of BeautyMNL's Crazy Christmas Sale as well as their Unlimited Free Shipping promo. The free shipping is only valid from October 7, 2018 up to December 31, 2018 only.

If you're not familiar with this platform, BeautyMNL is an online shopping platform, where you can shop for (1) beauty products: makeups, skin care products, hair and body products as well as scents and organizers, (2) health and wellness products: food & drink, diets, supplements, home care, eco-friendly products and well-being, (3) fitness products: activewear, accessories, small equipment and sports nutrition, (4) makeover deals: hair, skin, nails, brows, waxing and lashes.

Without further ado, let me share the process and what I shopped during their Crazy Christmas Sale. By the way, I already used this platform when I ordered Lucas Papaw last February. Before, I used their website when I ordered but now, I used their mobile app to order.

I ordered 3 pieces of L'Oreal Paris Matte Powder Foundation w/ SPF34 for only Php 280 instead of Php 400. I tried many powder, BB creams, etc. before but this brand suits on my skin. I didn't experience any breakout + it stays on my skin longer (not sure if 12 hours work 'coz I retouch every 6 hours). This is not a sponsored post though.

I also ordered Innisfree's Auto Eye Brow Pencil for only Php 200. I haven't tried this brand yet so I will just update you if it's okay.

After tapping the Checkout button, you need to put your personal details such as contact number and delivery address. Make sure all the fields are complete to avoid delivery conflicts.

Next, select your desired mode of payment. I chose the Cash on Delivery option because I'm more comfortable with it. Just to remind you that with this option, you are required to give exact amount only. They don't carry a change, ever.

Do check thoroughly the Terms and Conditions for the Cash on Delivery option. Then, tap the Got It button on the alert as well as the Send My Invoice button.

***Sometimes, they give freebies so better check it out and shop early.

Now, you can check your email for your invoice.

You can check the status of your order on the Accounts tab and click Orders on the list. What I love about BeautyMNL is they process orders really fast. Just look on the phone's timestamp. After 2-3 hours, they already processing my order.

The next day (November 28), I received a text message from them that my package was on the way. Their logistics was really fast and efficient, right? 

Note: I only tried the Metro Manila area delivery address. I haven't tried yet the provincial address so the delivery date and time might differ.

I received my order at lunch time around 12 pm. Here's the package looks like:

The three compact powders were well-packaged with bubble wraps except for the eye brow pencil. Good thing that everything was in good condition.

Will I purchase again? Definitely, yes!

How about you? Have you tried their service? If not, will you order from them in the future?
