20140428-185945.jpg

I missed these yummy baby Paos! 80 pesos for 3 tiny sized pao but there are hard to come by! I came here several times asking for this yummy dessert and its not always that they have any in stock to serve. Today is my lucky day!

Lunch at Spicy Fingers for 120 pesos!

20140427-115140.jpg

You wouldn’t believe me by looking at this photo, the menu says its the Salisbury Steak meal. 😓

I was instantly sold to the description of hard boil eggs wrapped in ground beef and so this was what it actually looked like. Now I know.

Oh well. At least its affordable.

He talks too fast. And doesn’t do much English explanation. Ophelie is sick so he had to sit in for her class. I really need to brush up and practice my French more often. I been slacking really.

Ukokkei Ramen Ron! #foodtrip

20140425-180338.jpg

At the Tuscany Private Estates McKinley Hill, a few blocks away from my office building. With Jaja, Lauren and Mart! Our first time at this place and we wanted so bad to try their “highly recommended” TantanMien that we specifically planned this foodtrip tonight even if it means having to wait around for 2.5 hours before their restaurant opens at 5:30pm!

We were hanging out at the office pantry after work, and then even headed to Dunkin Donuts Cafe at Venice Piazza and had munchkins before dinner!

The menu of the night consists of “soft boiled” eggs (the Japanese Version). I honestly thought it was going to be the runny version.

20140426-012428.jpg

The steam-fried Gyoza ordered by Lauren. Php 120 for 5 pieces.

20140426-012513.jpg

And for the love of eggs, Mart and Jaja ordered a total of 3 plates of Tamago! Php 120 per 5 pieces.

20140426-012642.jpg

And finally the looong awaited Tantanmien. Worth 390 pesos but its really good for 2 persons if you don’t eat so much. It was rather disappointing because the soup was soo oily, and I guess because it was served very hot, the soup also tasted more spicier than ever!

Irah also joined us after awhile for her dinner break,

Much later, Rachelle, Denise, Yen and Andrew (Yen’s bf) came and joined us for dinner too. We didn’t manage a group photo with them though.

All in all, the food was just so-so. I am not a big Ramen enthusiast but I can tell when its NOT good. So this one is a definite thumbsdown from me.

Transcendence.

20140424-192441.jpg

Watching this movie with Nikoboy at Glorietta 4 Cinemas. Kind of a spontaneous thing as I was expecting to go home right after gym. Got the invitation quite late but since he was alone, didn’t wanna make a brother feel so sad and rejected.

I survived the whole 2 hour movie without any snacks! I can actually do it! Although it sure would’ve been more fun to have food to munch on while watching the intense movie.

I knew it was about Artificial Intelligence but didn’t realise it was going to go so far out from what I expected.

Thank You Lord for the beautiful Sunrise! ☀️🌄

Because of the Lord ’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22, 23 NIV)
