Chill Nights, A Beautiful View and Great Food to Match at Penthouse 8747 in Makati City

It was a weeknight invitation, but I just had to go and check-out The Penthouse 8747 at the B.A. Lepanto Building in Makati City.  It was also a decent walkable distance from where my office was, so I decided to just take a leisurely walk going there.  I crossed thru Ayala Triangle, and just a stone's throw away, the building is right there in front of me.

At the lobby, a lady greets me, and holds a key to an express elevator that opens to a floor just below The Penthouse 8747.  Just one more flight of stairs and you can hear music playing, a smile from their staff who leads you inside, and when the doors open, it shows you a beautiful view of the Makati Skyline just before day turns into night.


The Penthouse 8747's chic interiors are reminiscent of the Art Deco era, with couch seating areas that are spread across the entire length of the space, that makes it a comfortable place to hang out in even until the wee hours of the morning.  

If you want to get near the view, there are also bar stools, near the glass terrace.  This area has the best seat in the house if you ask me.  The place embraces al fresco dining, so be sure you are comfortably, but chicly dressed right for it.

Stock Investing Made Easy via The 2 Trade Asia App

Have you tried investing money on the stock market?  I have tried this first years ago when a big oil company placed some of their company's shares on the stock market for an Initial Public Offering (IPO).  I watched my stocks grow faster than I could ever imagined!  Nowadays, do you know that you can now invest stocks via the 2 Trade Asia app?  How convenient, right?  You no longer have to go to a bank to buy or cash in your stocks, plus you can simply trade through your mobile phone whenever and wherever!

The SBS Inkigayo Sandwich

Are you a sandwich person?  I surely am!  It is a quick grab and go meal for people on the go and also, not messy to eat.  There is a sandwich that has become popular among K-Pop fans, as their K-Pop idols have been seen eating and sharing it on their social media accounts with silly puns.  It is called the SBS Inkigayo Sandwich, and it started at Korea's well-known SBS music television program.  

Since K-Pop artists are not allowed to eat in the waiting areas of the popular TV program, they would then go to the 4th floor of the building to get some food to eat, and this is how the SBS Inkigayo Sandwich started to get famous.  It was also a way for fans to make friends with their K-Pop idols by discreetly inserting their phone numbers and give to their K-Pop idols.  Quite a smooth move!
