Ponti is not a person
Ponti is place
where hybrid people in the Metro
dine the place with grace
and after dark this place transforms
into hip-notic scene
if you have not been here yet,
where have you been?
this place brings awesome memories
for more than ten awesome years
this place has just been a part
of everyoneâ€™s careers!
That was a hard one.
Anyway, I really miss this place.Â The resto-bar is really called â€œIl Ponticelloâ€ but the people just call it â€œPontiâ€. Aside form the good food, I always love the crowd here too.Â Itâ€™s a temple for my dancing soul 🙂 I havenâ€™t been here in a since we moved offices to The Fort.Â I was so glad we came here for a pitstop.Â This place is really known for its bar and night life.Â But people donâ€™t usually know that they have good Italian food here.Â Well, I havenâ€™t really tasted everything but I love the pizza and the pasta here!
Prosciutto Di Parma, Mortadela, Salami Milano and Pepperoni Salami
(translation: all-meat pizza)
It was a little bit salty for me, but I have tried other pizzas and I recommend the Four-Cheese Pizza!
Vince ordered the Onion Soup: Zuppa Di Cippole
Itâ€™s Onion soup with Mozarella and dipped bread.
Vince also ordered this.Â He was in the mood for some lamb dish.
This is the Arrosto Dâ€™Agnello.Â Itâ€™s a Roman specialty of over-baked leg of lamb in red wine sauce.
Now that is definitely Vinceâ€™s taste 🙂
Rev&Rave drink: Bacci made of Vodka, Tequilla and Orange
Itâ€™s a yummy drink and tastes just like juice :)Â Youâ€™ll feel the alcohol kick in the middle though **oh lowdy**
I was feeling a little bit hyper because this was the night before my trip to KL.
This is also the drink that could give me (or you if you buy the same drink) a chance to be sent to Singapore to watch the F1 Signapore Grand Prix 2010!Â You know why you want to go.Â You would get to see the legendary Michael Schumacher or your other favorite F1 driver in the Parade of the Drivers before the race starts.
I watched the F1 Grand Prix before and saw my favorite F1 driver Kimi Raikkonen.Â Watch this video and hear me scream.
Imagine youâ€™re 5 meters away from Schumiâ€¦ *faints* I havenâ€™t seen him in person yet BTW and Iâ€™m hoping I would get a chance to win too.Â It would be FAB!Â I will tell my grand children all about him!!!
Not a fan eh?Â You donâ€™t have to be.Â When I was in college, I wasnâ€™t a fan of F1 but I thought it would be cool to see this most luxurious event LIVE.Â I never thought I would ever really get to watch it liveâ€¦ I mean, tickets were expensive and you need to go out of the country!Â But when they announced that they will have the first night race in Singapore, I really took the chance to watch it! Singapore is so near the Philippines and if you take advantage of the seat sales, youâ€™d get cheaper tickets.Â Itâ€™s an event youâ€™d be proud you experienced.
F1 Signapore is a big feast.Â You would also get to see stars performing mini-concerts around the area (included in the ticket).Â So far, I have witnessed â€œThe Wailers (THAT WAS THE BOMB) reggae loveâ€ and the Backstreet Boys.Â This year, its the divaâ€™s turn â€“ thatâ€™s right Mariah Carey, Missy Elliot, Adam Lambert (heâ€™s a Diva, right?), also Daughtry and many more.
