Yesterday, I went to SM with Babong to canvass for Khaki pants and white shoes for my uniform this coming Monday. I had so much fun catching up with Babong since I haven’t seen her in forever over food and window-shopping.
We tried Auntie Anne’s Soft Pretzel that Dianne has been raving about and she’s right they’re awesome! Babong got the bacon bits pretzel while I got their Cinnamon Sugar coated pretzel stick with cream cheese dip.
We went afterwards to the department store to scout for my stuff and of course check out the merchandise (SM will have their sale today) once again me and babong wanted to kill ourselves for wanting to buy most of the stuff we found in SM. I went crazy on this dangled black feather earrings and rope friendship like bracelet (will be back for sure). I also died upon checking the pretty Parisian shoes that do not have my size. I was able to find Khaki pants that would fit me but its so expensive, I went on slight heart attack, 1,300Php for a pair of pants and I need to purchase 3 or 4 of those.
Knowing the possible amount that I need to shell out for my uniform, I wanted to eat to take my depression away! (Well that was because I have been craving for it the whole day) Went straight to McDee’s to try (for the first time) their double cheeseburger (which by the way if you order as a small meal has the same price as the cheeseburger meal) and it did not disappoint! It was just heaven, heaven i tell you!
More chitchats with babong in Mcdo about my sexuality and sexuality in general. I knew I had to openly talk about it to a friend.
Afterwards, traveled to Ayala to meet and have dinner in Cafe Laguna with KV.
I did mention before that Cafe Laguna’s Kare-Kare is the best in town but I had to order something else last night. KV recommended Lechon Kawali and Beef Tenderloin tips. The lechon Kawali was soft, season right matched with Mang Inasal Sarsa it was just to die for! The Sizzling Tenderloin tips was smothered with tasty mushroom gravy topped with thin crispy stripped potatoes, it was just phenomenal! Thanks KV for the dinner treat!
Wasn’t planning on getting desserts but what the heck! I went on to indulge with 2 scoops of Gelatissmo with babong. Ordered Choco Mint and Macademia and Caramel in waffle cone just perfect way to end a good evening.
It’s funny how two of my friends reacted to my blog post, asking if it’s them I wast talking about. This is how powerful social media is, you post a status, tweet or blog about sometimes and gazillion of people react as if it written or posted for them.
There have been many times when we move on in life, allow relationships to be destroyed because of assumptions - I’ve learned this the hard way, that is why it is very important to ask and depending on how much you value that person, you’ll have to put faith on whatever their answers are.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that, it is never fair to go on with life thinking that you’ve decided on what’s in your head, you need a definite answer and the only way to get it is when you ask.
I just got a text from a friend who has been texting me non-stop about her current situation, I’d have to admit, It gets a bit irritating especially she’s been repeating dilemma a couple of times but obviously refuses to do something about it or at least act on it now until she sent me this …. Are you already tired of me? Because I’m already tired of myself. And that just completely melted my heart.
That text made me realize that although most of the times I have gotten tired of talking to her about how to get off her situation that I end up just nodding or making one line comments, I’ve realized that all she needs is someone to just listen to her or at least give the time to stop and hear her out, no matter how she sounds like a broken record.
I’ve realized how lucky I am to have friends who are patient with me, who maybe frustrated but never gave up on me.. on pushing me to become better and for helping me try not to make mistakes that I might regret. I don’t have a lot in life but I’ve got the best people backing me up, ready to be there for me, no matter how ridiculous, messy and unmanageable I get.
I’m not a darling of the crowd, most of the times I am seen as the bad person, maybe a lot of times misunderstood but over and over again I’ve realized how its much more better to be hated for who I am than to be loved by what I’m not. I’ve hurt and pushed a lot of people away but those who got the chance to get to know who I really am knows that I’m not really as bad as what others perceive or I how i perceive myself to be to others.
It is true, I am tactless and impulsive, and although I’m working on it but those who have known me before knows that right now I only turn out that way when I’m pushed to my limits, to my breaking point.
I’m sorry things had to be this way and turned out this way but whatever happened was just for the best, or whats best for now. It’s about time I turn back my attention to the one who needs it most, me.
In this world of excessive white lies, you just need to ask the question and then feel the answer.
Seriously, people today just utter out a white lies like how it is inevitable for us to salivate -I really do not know why I just related white lies and salivating but I’m sure you do know what I mean. It’s like how I love yous or kissing are given away just like fliers in the street. What happened to people who know the value of a kiss? That you just don’t kiss anyone that you don’t really have feelings for. I still think a kiss is scared, its not something to make you just feel good about at the moment but its about feeling that tingling feeling inside you that completes the unexplainable feeling of butterflies in your stomach. Okey I sound uber hopeless romantic, go ahead, shoot me. Back to what I was talking about, I don’t know why its just easy to utter a lie thinking it would save you or someone pain and hurt, it really is the same.
It’s a rainy Sunday and I’m tempted to sleep after a super delish lunch. I hope everyone is getting a good sunday! =)
The best things in life are indeed for FREE!!! and I’m talking about friends and food… or friends who treat you food! LOL.
Riva wanted to see me and our go-t0-gay-guy Karl cause she wanted to talk about how she completely made a fool of herself when she got crunked the other night with her office mates. We had the Ultimate Dimsum Buffet at Ding Qua Qua
It has been awhile since I last had their buffet and I think Ding Qua-Qua offers food that is definitely worth the price your paying. Some of the dishes they served last night were : Fish in fragrance sauce (Cream Dory fish that melts in your mouth), Beef dish that was my favorite (went seconds), Patatim (Good), Sauteed Mushroom and Veggies (I loved it cause of the mushrooms), Lechon Kawali, Sweet and Sour Pork (Love dimsum’s sweet and sour), Pork Shanghai (they also have good Shanghai), Spring rolls,White bread, Fried Rice, Steam rice and their Quail, Mushroom and Plain siomai! (There were more but I couldn’t recall the names of the food). It was worth it cause usually when we pay ala-carte we pay around 500-600 a meal for 2-3 people and sometimes it’s bitin. One time this deal site, I just forgot the URL, offered a deal of 99Php for the Ding Qua-Qua buffet and it sold like hotcakes! For those who live outside the Metro and love the comfort of chinese food, get the best deal out of your moolah by heading on to Ding Qua-Qua JY Square Mall branch for this aweeessssommmmeeeee buffet.
I just felt bad that after I finished eating, my tummy was so full and my heart started to feel tight, I wanted to barf and I did… =(
Afterwards we headed on to Gmick were we decided to use the free hour we got from the last time we were there. We had to buy an hour for us to avail of the free hour from our last visit. Eat-all-You-Cans + Karaoke is always a good mix for me, Riva and Karl. We couldn’t help but sing our favorite karaoke song, Spinning Around with matching Karl’s choreography. Lena and boyfriend Luis arrived minutes after and joined our uber fun karaoke session. It was my first time to meet Luis and thought that he looked better in person. Then we had beer and spent the whole night singing, dancing and laughing our hearts out, definitely good times!
We proceeded to IT park to meet Kathy and Lovely just to say hello, it was mostly Elena who wanted to talk to the girls. Kathy was just out of this world that night. haha Love you Kat! We were driving to the hotel when Luis thought of getting Yellow Cab for midnight snacks. He got us Dear Darla (Ohhh the universe conspires I’ve been wanting to try Dear Darla for months now) and the pizza did not disappoint! It tasted awesome with the chili sauce Ketsup.
18 inch of goodness!! That Saturday night was just a delight!
My friend K-na kept on bullying me about exercising and losing weight, she wanted me to lose 100lbs by October! OMG! Why am I even still friends with this woman?! Obviously she wants to kill me with her over the top expectation, this ain’t biggest loser ya’know. Originally, If I’d lose weight she’d treat me to either Chelsea’s or Outback but looks like I need to ask for a more expensive meal since she’s making me do the IMPOSSIBLE (considering my circumstances)
It’s Sunday and I’ve got to figure out how to quit my other job and finish all my pre-employment requirements. I’m really eggzited in the next few days! Happy days are coming! =)
“If I am honest I will admit that I have always wanted to avoid love. Yes give me romance, give me sex, give me fights, give me all the parts of love but not the simple single word which is so complex and demands the best of me this hour this minute this forever.”—Jeanette Winterson, The World and Other Places (via helplesslyamazed)
“The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance, but live right in it, under its roof.”—Barbara Kingsolver (via kari-shma)

Spent about an hour with this kid and boy did he capture my attention… not by his next door boy look (though it wouldn’t hurt that this guy is an eye candy) but by how well he presents himself even at a very young age. Creative and articulate, he’s not afraid to put risque ideas that are out of the box but definitely innovative and interesting. We all know a nursing student’s life isn’t a walk in the park but this young man definitely has the energy to explore and expand his talents as he is part of the debate team, the university paper and a SBO officer.
