Wolfpack leader Bradley Cooper is back for more havoc in the final HANGOVER!


Newly minted as a Best Actor Academy Award-nominee for “Silver Linings Playbook,” Bradley Cooper returns as high school English teacher and unofficial pack leader Phil, in Warner Bros.’ and Legendary Pictures’ mayhem comedy “The Hangover Part III.”

It’s been two years since the Wolfpack’s misadventure in Bangkok. Phil, Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) are happily living uneventful lives at home. The only member of the gang who’s not content is Alan (Zach Galifianakis). Still lacking a sense of purpose, the group’s black sheep has ditched his meds and given into his natural impulses in a big way—which, for Alan, means no boundaries, no filters and no judgment—until a personal crisis forces him to finally seek the help he needs.

Amen to Miso-Ten's Ramen!


I am not so adventurous when it comes to food.  I somehow go for safe dishes because my day will be ruined if the food I ate didn't satisfy me!  Hehe.  But while I'm "segurista" when it comes to food, I sometimes try new dishes and  I just know when I spotted a good one.  Before, I'm not into ramen but when my friends started to bring me to ramen houses, I became an instant convert!  :)  The problem though is that most ramen houses are those somehow hidden from the main roads and malls.  If there's one in the mainstream, the dish will definitely cost much higher than the usual.

But a new place solved that dilemma!  I recently discovered Miso-Ten!  It's right inside the mall (Robinson's Place in Ermita), it's priced right and the much desired RAMEN is there!  :)
