Prices range differently during weekdays and weekends. Buffet price start at php1500 nett per person drinks excluded, I don't recommend ordering drinks when having a buffet, that makes you get full easily, water will do, you may call Circles Event Cafe for price inquiry.

I got a chance to dine at Circles thru my Credit Card provider, in which I got a free gift certificate.  Food at Circles are great almost everything, place was luxury nice with a good ambiance and staffs are very accommodating. Comparing  Circles Buffet to Spiral at Sofitel Philippine Plazain which they really had a wide range of food station, I may say nothing beats Spiral Buffetwhen it comes to variety of cuisine. Its still best to dine and try it for yourself.

I really heart this Drama. The drama is currently on the 9th episode and I'm already looking forward for the next episode. OST of this drama is awesome and Jung Yong Hwa sung some songs romantically which I really really love and of course his cute.

The drama is awesome for the first ninth episode. A romantic and musical drama that really entertained me a lot. It makes me fall in love with the drama every episode I've watched even more.  Of course how could I not be, since all actors and actresses here are so handsome and beautiful. I love how Jung Yong Hwa sang and he acts naturally cool. I love Kang Min Hyuk character here even he look like nerd and eats like a pig, at first I find his character nasty but now I find him so cute and good in his role as being a very caring and gentlemen.

In this drama you will also learn how to appreaciate korean tradition songs which they combined to modern music.
