Applebee’s

Standard

After my second session with Wink, naglakad lakad kame ni Jonah along High Street then kumain na. Decided to eat at Applebee’s. Ma-try na rin syempre.

I ordered Caesar salad (P495). Jonah ordered Pork Liempo Adobo (P485). Tapos dessert, Triple Chocolate Meltdown (P375).

Caesar salad’s ok. Medyo maasim. Pero pwede na. And malaki naman serving. The Liempo naman, masarap din sya. Pero nothing special. Yun fried rice parang kaya mo na lutuin sa bahay. And yun dessert, in fairness ang laki ng scoop ng ice cream. Kaso sobrang tamis nung cake. Hahaha but its good ah!

We both had bottomless drinks. Mine is coke (P95) , Jow had iced tea (P95) naman. Nakaka dismaya lang yun coke kase, nasa 1.5 lang sya, walang lasa. Ang pakla nung una. Sayang, masarap din sana kung fountain sya. Hehe

No reklamo ako sa food. Masarap naman, pero yun nga, nothing special. Parang mahal tuloy sya para sa lasa nya.

Dinner date with Yoyce.

Standard

It was her birthday on sunday, October 8. Plan, slight plan sana namin salubungin birthday nya pero di ako naka-attend sa birthday ni TJ. Di rin kame nakapag usap kung tutuloy pa ba kame magkita or not.

Anyways, napag usapan namin magkita ng Monday and kumain. I met up with her and Ron sa may food choices. But Ron left din agad, nakapag ice cream date na sila and sinamahan lang nya si Joyce til dumating ako.

We went to TGIFridays. Sabi ko may free food kase ako. Ang cheap ko. Hahaha but I let her order kung ano gusto nya, I didnt tell her plan ko talaga i-treat sya. Since libre yun kukunin ko food, kung ano gusto nya, yun lang babayaran ko.

Medyo natagalan kame mag-decide what to order. Hahaha tapos gusto nya sana mag bottomless mojito, di naman tinuloy. Tsk hahaha

She ordered Chipotle Cutlet Chicken (P595) and I ordered JD chops (P475). Both bottomless coke (P120).

Busog kame parehas. And I will try that Chipotle next time.

Di kame nagpa late ng uwi. But marami nang kwentuhan.

I hope nag enjoy ka mahal. Happy Birthday!

Staycation / Get together

Standard

I finally used the Gift Check from Dad’s lawyer sa Diamond Hotel.

Kasama ko Sally and Chloe.

I picked them up at home then diretso kame Diamond Hotel. Buti pwede early check in. Andon na kame ng 12nn on Saturday.

Chloe’s having a great time kase ang laki ng space nya to play.

Room is okay naman. Maganda na rin yun location ng room kase kita ang Manila Bay, kaya lang gloomy, so no sunset.

Pool is closed. Sayang. But sabi naman nung girl sa Front Desk if we want mag-pool, just inform them so they can arrange a car going to New World Hotel. Di na rin kame nag-try coz di nagdala si Sally ng swimwear nila ni Chloe.

Natuwa ako when I saw the bathroom, merong tub! Wee! No bubble bath, sayang. Tipid lang din sa toiletries. Fridge was super sikip. Hehe may pagka useless din, buti na lang madali mag-request ng pitcher ng water. Uhm pitcher na pwede ko na lagukin ng isang lagukan. HAHAHAHA

Speaking of bathroom pala, mukhang di na-sweep ng maayos. Nakakita ako ng sticker na cover ng isang deodorant sa wall.

Hmm

Jhen and JD came to visit. Then nagpa-deliver kame ng lunch at Max’s. Si Chloe ang lakas kumain, kakatuwa. She super likes rice. Natutuwa sya everytime sasabihin ang rice. Si JD naman ang tagal nag warm up, tulog na si Chloe nung naging ok sya. hehe

When JD and Jhen left, we went sa Rob Place para mag-dinner.

We had dinner at Recipe, na tuwang tuwa na naman ang bulinggit dahil sa rice. Bought cheesecake at Pablo, and beers sa 7 Eleven, then went back sa hotel.

Aba, masarap ah! Thanks Sal!

Ending tinulugan ako ni Sally. She fell asleep while nagpapatulog kay Chloe. Kaya pagtapos ko with one bottle, I opened my second one and went for hot bath.

IMG_9963

I enjoyed my hot bath while drinking my beer. Na-relaxed ako kahit papano. Then nag ready for bed.

Saw Babe’s missed call nung naalipungatan ako. He also called ng 6ish. Talked for almost one hour din. When we hung up, nag-ready na for breakfast naman.

Didn’t like much the breakfast at Corniche. It’s a good thing, kasama na sa GC yun breakfast. If not, maiinis lang siguro ako na gumastos ako pagkamahal for breakfast na di ganon ka-yummy.

Yung bacon, di masarap. Too dry. Sausage, matamis. Hash brown, ang alat. French toast, a little ok. Waffle, hmm. Too bad di ko na-try yun mga pastries. Didnt try yun ibang ulam, parang pang lunch naman kase. Found an omelette station, pero di nako nagpagawa. Coffee, buti ok naman! hihi yun nga lang, warm lang sya. Ano pa ba kinain ko? Hmm ang konti kase ng choices. And nabusog nako sa 2 cups of coffee, water, OJ, tea. Hahaha

Si Chloe nag-enjoy sa watermelon.

Went back sa room after, rest ng few mins then nag-ready for check out.

12nn we checked out na. Biro mo, may bayad pala ang outside call. Local call. Baket kaya? Dibale sana kung cellphone tinawagan. Oh well.

Mababaet naman staffs. Love the bed. Kaso for a 5 star hotel, medyo naiiwan na sila. Ok siguro if mag renovate na sila or baguhin lang yun paint (oh speaking of, yun wall ng room namin, may mga stains din, di naman sobrang noticeable, but dapat maintained yon). TV not HDTV.

Overall, 2 star lang sila for me. Yun staffs lang nag-dala and that may bath tub kame sa room plus swerteng we had two queen sized beds. Hihi

So, we went to BGC right away. Andon na ang Lagula family.

We ate lunch at Seol and Bean sa Fort Strip. Wala ako idea sa mga Korean food, and nag-suggest lang si Mei ng food. I ordered Beef Bulgogi. Hmm nahiya lang ako sabihin, pero di ko gaano nagustuhan. Tapos tinikman ko yun Kimchi, waaah sobra anghang. Hahaha

Nag-treat si Mei ng Bingsu. Nakakatuwa si Yohann, na-excite sya sobra.

 

Later on, Sarah came. Followed by Jhen, JD and yaya. At di pa ulet nagtagal, Capacete family came. Konting picture picture at lumipat na kame sa Mad Mark’s Creamery & Good Eats in Central Square. Meryenda and nag-dinner na sila Tin.

From here, dito na rin kame naghiwa-hiwalay.

I had a great weekend. Started last Friday with Otchie and Sally.

Kuya J Restaurant

Nice naman ang Menu, magazine ang dating.

Medyo gusto ko to i-try last week pa. I saw it kase sa Jazz Mall, parang sosi sya. Kaso since sabi ni Jonah parang Max’s lang sya at katapat na lang rin ang Vikings, eh mag Vikings na lang, di ko tuloy nasubukan.

Then, nag aya si bro pa-gas kame at Landers kase nga sale sila. Eh wow sa pila, blockbuster, naisip namin kain na lang kame sa Landers. But gabi na, 2 na lang natitira nila food, pizza and bucket of chicken. Ayaw namin.

Eh nasa labas lang ang Kuya J, sinubukan namin. Aba parang sosi naman sa loob.

Ordered Pork Sisig (P200), Bangus ala Pobre (250), Crab rice plater (P175), Ube halo halo (P109) and Pitcher of Iced tea (P120). Masarap yun rice, just that di sya lasang crab. Parang margarine rice lang sya with super few crab bits. The sisig, hmm nope. The bangus, yon ang masarap. Only Alei ordered the halo halo, and masarap naman daw sya. Yun shaved ice nya ang ube, so no ube ice cream ito. Sobrang soft, parang Bingsu.

The place is nice, but siguro di na ako mag aaya ulet dito. At least natikman.

Cheat Day Weekend

Standard

Haay finally a break from my 1200cal. Hahaha Kala mo ang tagal na. Bitin na bitin lang talaga ako sa food. Mahirap mabigla, but ok lang yan. Para sa akin din yon.

Anyway, Saturday we had breaded porkchop for lunch and left over for dinner. Sinubukan ko na konti ang kainin.

Breakfast, nanlibre si madam ng McDo. I ate 1-1/2 ng pancakes and a hashbrown. Meryenda, nag spam sandwich kame.

Sunday, I had 2 pcs of pandesal. Sinawsaw ko lang sa coffee. Haha

Lunch, baby back ribs. Di ako nag-rice, but nag mashed potato and half ng corn.

Baby Back Ribs with Mashed Potato and Corn

Plastic yang nasa plate ko, three na maliit na ribs lang kinain ko. Di ko rin naubos yun mashed potato. Pero nabusog ako. Ang saya ng tummy ko.

Meryenda and dinner, pinag isa na. Nag-take out kame ng cheeseburger from Sweet Ecstacy and half a dozen of buffalo wings.

Prince at Sweet X

I didnt a take a pic of our food, gutom na kase. Hahaha di ko rin naubos yun burger ko. I only had 2 pcs of chicken, medyo naumay ako. Wingman’s still my fave.

This is my third time at Sweet X, first time was last year pero I only ordered the Sriracha Wings, Onion Rings and Kahlua Mocha shake. Second time just wings. I wanted to order sana ng shake, kaso naisip ko rin masyadong mahal ang 160 for a small cup. This is my first time mag-order ng burger. Masarap sya, parang burger sa States. Ang juicy. Parang Whopper nung bago pa lang ang Burger King dito sa Pinas. Sulit naman na saken ang P195 Cheeseburger. The Buffalo Wings though, naumay ako. And I think mayo lang yun dip na binigay.

Went to 6750 rin, Thina called and she and Terence will be in Makati daw. If pwede dinner, but I said kakabili ko lang ng food. Coffee na lang.

She’s about to pop, excited nako for their baby.

Eight Coffee Bar by UCC

Tyne messaged me two weeks ago and nag-aya ng unli sangria at Eight Coffee Bar. Syempre, game ako. Miss ko na kaya mag-sangria. Kasama daw Domz and Mike. So, set kame August 13.

Friday, medyo nag-alangan na ako. Wala pa palang sahod. But since naka oo na ako, at gusto ko lumabas tumuloy ako. Buti na lang din, coz di na nakasunod sila Mike and Domz. Nataon kase merong PokemonGo something sa Eastwood. Tapos maulan pa.

Sabado night with Tyne.

Nag-enjoy naman kame ni Tyne. Masarap ang food, and not too pricey. Ang kaso, wala silang unlimited sangria that day. Naubusan daw sila ng wine na ginagamit for the unli sangria. But, available ang sangria nila. So, magkaiba pala ang wine na gamit nila. Di ko masyado type yun house sangria (P280) nila. I ordered different drink on my second glass, saw this Milky Way (P350) sa menu. It has Bailey’s, Kahlua, Espresso and Half & Half. Wow Bailey’s! Naka 2 glasses ako of Milky Way.

Yun food, I ordered Cheese and Spinach with garlic bread (P280). Hmm parang baliktad ah?! Tyne ordered Chicken Pesto Quesadilla (P220), its also good. At dahil nasarapan kame sa food namin, inuwi pa namin yun left over namin. Hahaha

Nakuha ko na rin yun pinabili kong tumbler. Yehey!!!

I saw this burger place on IG. Owned by Franny of Magic 89.9 (used to be a dj on RX) and her boyfriend or husband siguro. Inaaya ko RX friends ko matagal na kaso busy masyado at di magkatugma tugma ang dates na pwede ang lahat.

Then last Saturday, finally na-try ko rin.

But since I’m not a burger person, and 3 choices lang ang burgers (parang IN&Out lang hehe), I decided to get the wings na lang. Di pa rin kase ako talaga gutom. But next time, promise I will try their burger.

Joyce and I shared sa order namin. Onion rings (Php 100) and Sriracha Lime Wings (Php 220). A little spicy (when I say little, too hot na for me yon coz I’m not a fan of spicy food). And sa shake, I got the Kahlua Mocha, Joyce ordered Irish Oreo. Both have alcohol. No ice. (Both Php 160). Masarap sya. But a bit pricey for me yun shake. Its a small paper cup (or waxed or ano ba tawag sa cup na yan?) and its 160 bucks. If siguro kasing laki man lang ng grande size ng mga coffee shop or ng drinks ng Mcdo, pwede pa. But, I’m not saying I’m not ordering shakes again when I get back. Hahaha I love milkshakes.

Oh by the way, wala ba talaga dip ang wings?

Php 640 for this.

I’ll be back for your burger and more shakes!!!!
