Marisa’s Silvanas & Sans Rival


I never thought that SM Megamall will become a Food Mecca. SM Megamall Atrium and the new SM Megamall Fashion Hall opens with new Restaurants where you can have food choices more than you can think of.

Last Friday before going to work, I decided to buy something sweet to eat while walking my way to our office. I love Silvanas that’s why I decided to try Marisa’s Silvanas & Sans Rival. 


For those who doesn’t know what a Silvana is, a Silvana is a Filipino dessert. It is a frozen cookie made from a layer of buttercream sandwiched between two cashew-meringue wafers coated with cookie crumbs. Silvana is the cookie version of the Sans rival, a Filipino cake made up of similar ingredients.


I decided to try their Silvanas since I onkly have P100 extra in my pocket just enough to try their four different flavours (Original, Chocolate, Ube and Pandan). Surprisingly, the pandan is my ultimate fave! A definite must-try! The others are good, too, though. The price is very reasonable, P20 per piece for this heavenly dessert. 


I have yet to try their Sans Rival that comes in two flavours (Original and Chocolate).

Gumbo- A Taste of New Orleans


Me and my wife decided to dine once more in one of our favorite restaurants in Robinsons Magnolia and it’s no other than Gumbo. It’s been almost 5 months since the last time we ate there.

Gumbo- A Taste of New Orleans


I’ll be sharing now with you the amazing dishes we had for lunch during that day! I hope you are excited because I was pretty much so when we were waiting for the dishes to be served. 


Gumbo’s Free Breads with Olive Oil and Vinegar


Seafood Spaghetti Php595.00 


All-Meat Pizza Php595.00 


It was indeed an amazing lunch. Hearing the Dixieland jazz music and feeling the vibrant energy of a Mardi Gras Celebration is an added treat as well.

Il Padrino Coffee


I was able to visit Il Padrino Coffee after watching two films from ther recently held Cinema One Originals Festival in Fairview Terraces. I don’t know what to order so I decided to ask some food suggestions from one of their waitress named Tiffany. Tiffany suggested of their bestsellers and I ended up ordering Margherita Pasta with Herbed Fish and Ice Blended Choco Macadamia.


Complimentary Focaccia Bread

While waiting for my order, I was given a Complimentary Focaccia Bread. The bread is so soft and delicious but I think it would be better if they reheat the bread in an oven before serving it to their customers. 


Here comes my food! 🙂 


Margherita Pasta with Herbed Fish, Php170.00

Margherita Pasta with Herbed Fish, seared dory with Il Padrino’s Mediterranean rub tossed in tomato, basil and mozzarella cheese and topped with parmesan cheese. 


Ice Blended Choco Macadamia, Php150.00

From the brick walls to the vinyl photo murals, the ambience would make you feel like you are in Italy. The price is very affordable for the taste and serving size of the dishes they offer. I hope they won’t change their pricing for a very long time

After selecting the appointment, on the right side of you’re screen. You’ll see the amount of your NBI Clearance and the different payment options you may want to choose.


Payment of NBI Clearance Transaction

After selecting the mode of payment that suits you. For the sake of this example, I selected 7-Eleven as the mode of payment because its the most convenient for me.


After selecting the mode of payment which is 7-Eleven, NBI Clearance Online will show you the Reference Number. You need to write the NBI Clearance Reference number and bring it to the nearest 7-Eleven and pay for it. 


After paying the said NBI Clearance reference number in any mode of payment you selected you need to check the status of your NBI Clearance Online application. When you check your transaction in the NBI Clearance Online website, you’ll see that in the details section that the status will change from “PENDING” to “PAID”. 


Processing your NBI Clearance

After completing the NBI Clearance Online application, all you need to do is wait for your appointment date.

When the scheduled appointment date arrives, go to the NBI Clearance branch you have selected in your appointment. Bring at least Two (2) Valid Identification Cards and don’t forget your NBI Clearance Reference Number and your NBI Clearance Online Payment receipt. 

You don’t have to print your NBI Clearance Application form, all you need to bring are the items I mentioned earlier.

Photo Capture and Biometrics

The last step in you NBI Clearance application will be the Photo Capture and Biometrics. In this step, all you need to do is follow the instruction of your NBI Clearance personnel on what to do.

We won’t discuss the picture taking which I’m very sure you’re familiar on how to do it. While Biometrics is scanning your finger print on their device. This will copy your finger prints and save it in their database.

We haven’t heard any issues on these steps as this the easiest part. 

Releasing

NBI Clearance are issued immediately after you’ve done all the steps above. All you need to do is wait for a few minutes and your NBI Clearance will be printed and handed to you.

But the one day processing will not take place IF you have an NBI Clearance HIT. This means that the NBI Clearance Personnel will not issue your NBI Clearance and your NBI Clearance will be put on hold.

Most of the time, they will stamp your receipt with and date and ask you to claim it on that day. The reasons will be discussed further below. 

NBI Clearance HIT

There are several reasons why you are tagged as HIT in your NBI Clearance and these are the following:

1. You have a namesake – this means that you have the same name with another person.

2. Your namesake has a pending criminal case or outstanding warrant of arrest – If you have a namesake and (unluckily), he/she have a pending criminal case or an outstanding warrant of arrest, unfortunately, your NBI Clearance release will be delayed.

3. You have a pending criminal case – if you have a pending criminal case or have an outstanding warrant of arrest, your name will be flagged and the issuance of your NBI Clearance will be on hold.

4. You had a criminal case – whether you are found guilty or innocent in your previous case, this matter will cause the delay of the issuance of your NBI Clearance hence your are tag a HIT.

If NBI Clearance Personnel determined that you fall on Numbers 2, 3 & 4, an additional step will be added to your NBI Clearance Application which is the NBI Clearance Quality Control.

NBI Clearance Quality Control

An NBI Clearance Quality Control is done in the presence of the NBI Resident Lawyer’s office. An interview will take place and basic personal information will be asked to prove the identity of the Applicant. This aims to prove that the person or NBI Clearance Applicant is not the same person appearing on their records that has a criminal case or a pending warrant of arrest.

If the applicant is not the same person appearing on their record with criminal liability, the NBI Clearance of the applicant will be released immediately.

Congratulations! You just successfully applied for your NBI Clearance! Do you have anything to say to us? Let us know in the comments!

Gerry’s Jeepney

Gerry’s Jeepney

Gerry’s Jeepney serves Filipino food: Boodle Fight Style. They serve everything Filipino, from inihaw, to sisig, to binagoongang lechon kawali to their very own leche flan. This restaurant is good for group dates.



The signboards are really catchy. Those are what riders usually see inside the jeep. My favorite is “Ang maganda sa kanan. Ang cute sa kaliwa. Ang sexy sa harapan. Ang pangit wala ng upuan kung pwede sabit na lang”. I wonder if jeepney drivers really implement that.



Here’s our food! 🙂




It was a great gastronomic experience like a jeepney ride. So, visit their restaurant TODAY at 154D Maginhawa St. to enjoy Filipino Food, boodle fight style. Sakay na!
