I was literally surprised to receive a call from Ms. C last Saturday afternoon; it went something like …

Ms. CVS :  Hello, docgelo?

me :  Yes, who’s on the line?


me ( a bit sleepy) :  who?

Ms. CVS :  Cecile.  You won! Kaya lang finalist lang.  So when do you want to get your GCs from PL-Shang ?

me : Oh, Ms. Cecile! Wow (me -wide-mouthed-drop-jaw on the phone)!!! Thank you for the call. You made my afternoon, really!  We’ll claim it tomorrow–Sunday afternoon. 

Ms. CVS : OK, i’ll just leave it Mylene (the store manager). Thanks!

me :  Bye, thank you so much (wide smile up to my ears).

         Hey, Tina, nanalo daw, finalist yung picture nyo ni Gabby! Yehey! 

And so this picture of my wife, Tina and our 5-year-old son Gabby made it as one of the finalists at HP @ PL contest, conducted by Pepper Lunch, Shangri La and HP.  We didn’t win any of the 2 units of HP Premium Printer/Scanner/Copier but are still grateful of such blessings!

We won PhP 1,000 GC from Pepper Lunch and my family’s photo landed a space at Ms. C’s blog!  View here —CHUVANESS

After we heard mass at St. Francis of Assissi last Sunday; enjoyed spoonfuls of cereals at Cerealicious in Shangri La Plaza Mall, Tina, Gabby and I with our dear friend LG, headed to PEPPER LUNCH in the same mall to claim our Pepper Money. 

It was definitely another awesome PL experience!

What did we savor?

This was my hot grill plate – SHIMOFURI PEPPER STEAK, PhP 650.  Where else can you enjoy an affordable and tender-licious beef steak in a SIZZLE-IT-YOUR-WAY-style ?  Sarap! This is my next PL favorite to Double Beef Pepper Rice. 😀

Flipping the beef strips onto the grill in a few seconds will give you this heaven-on-a-hot-plate! 😀

While our friend LG enjoyed his order…


Tina had her favorite (and mine too!)…


I love PL’s KANI SALAD, PhP 99 while Gabby had his MOLTEN ALA MODE, PhP 140.

We LOVE PEPPER LUNCH MORE not just for their delicious PEPPER STEAKS AND HONEY BROWN SAUCE but for being so FAMILY-FRIENDLY.  All PL people from staff to the manager are always ready with warmest smiles and courtesy. One even provided Gabby with crayons and something to color which we really appreciate.  😀  Good job, PL!

Surely, after every meal at PL, everyone’s a winner!  😀

Thanks again, Ms. C., PL and HP! 😀

  1. Doc COngrats!! Talaga naman kapag sinuswerte eh…hindi minamalas hehehe. Wow our favorite, Pepper Lunch! Wow meron pala dyang salmon rice, dito wala at walang mga desserts. I just learned from your post na shimofuri pepper steak pala tawag dun, wala kasing english translation dito e hehehe basta pag nag oorder kami parang vending machine lang at naghuhulog lang kami ng coins or bills kaya we order by picture LOL.
