After more than a decade, I finally step foot to this Magical Place – Horrifying when I was a kid, and it still is. 😀 I would love to try all of the rides – but some are too much for my stomach to handle. 😀 might vomit and give trauma to the other visitors as well. HAHA.
Lunch at Chubby’s First. 😀 With my <3, my brother and Roxy.
Guess what? 😀 Finally crossed the Achor’s Away on my ‘TO TRY’. HAHAHA.
I had fun, EK! 😀 Will go back once I muster enough courage for the other rides. 😛
Goodreads: Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris–until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend.
I love how I was able to travel along the streets, towers, and cinemas of Paris because of this book. I somehow have this love and hate relationship for the way Etienne acted. I loved how this book depicted the ‘kilig’ moments of Anna when Etienne leaves some traces of affection for her. But I also hate how he fell for someone else when he has a FREAKING GIRLFRIEND and COMMITTED. Fuck it, Etienne! You should’ve ended things first before falling for Anna! Asshole.
Some lines I loved:
All I know is his crooked smile and his confident swaggery walk.
But I feel his stare as if it were the heat of the sun.
Boys turn girls into such idiots.
When Etienne brought Anna to POINT ZERO DES ROUTES (It’s the beginning of everything)
You only get a limited number in life. Falling Stars, eyelashes, dandelions, birthday candles.
When St. Clair defended Anna – ‘I want Anna on my team, and you’d be lucky to have her’.
When St. Clair confessed drunk: ‘I like you. and I don’t mean as a friend’.
This time his grin is full and dazzling, and it catches me off guard. My heart stops.
The only consistent bright spot was St. Clair.
Is it possible for home to be a person? and not a place?
The kind of person who radiates a natural magnetic field, who everyone is drawn to, who everyone is dazzled by?
Being called Etienne rather than what all people used to call him – St. Clair.
Will you please tell me you love me? — I’m dying here.
Another Mexican Treat! 😀 Nothing to do on my last day of school. MEH.
Always a Taco for me! 😀 Soft Ground Beef Taco for Php 130. two pieces of taco and some chips!
And Moe’s famous Chipotle Chicken for Php 265. He finished it in seconds! 😛 I’m assuming this is a thumbs up!
We also took the time to try Tim Hortons.
Small French Vanilla for Php 100 and Small Hazelnut Iced Capp for Php 135. Both are equally satisfying! I also ordered some Chocolate Chunk Cookie for Php 50 a piece and some Timbits for Php 10 each. The cookie was good, NOT WOAH thouugh. Timebits are blah. don’t know why they’re bragging about the timbits at all. It was dry and a bit bland.
We had some freetime on a weekday! Yay! Try out something new? Hell Yeah! Kodanda at BF. It’s a good thing we were able to try them out while on a promo/ 😀 Php 400 for an hour! 🙂 unlimited set!
Let the games, begin!
Okay so here it is: You have the stand behind the line, one foot forward, one foot at the back. Your fingers — well, I cannot instruct very well. However, the very amicable staff ill teach you step by step, guiding you through the first set.
We missed some shots, but we also landed some pretty close arrows to the main target. ❤
Some would think it would be fairly easier for me since I’m an Entrepreneurship Graduate — but doesn’t that just place me into a difficult position? because I have to prove the credibility of my diploma? HAHA. Nonetheless, I survived building a business course, again. In fact, I received my grades earlier this morning. Acceptable but I was actually aiming for 4.0. Whatever.
Finals? Present a compelling, viable and profitable business proposal.
With Fey and Maf. 🙂 relieving our stress with Banana Leaf.
I’ve been craving Mexican lately. Been eating tacos more than usual, eh? And here we are, again. Indulging on my cravings. 😛
So if you’re in the mood for some quesadillas, tacos or burritos — here’s their menu.
And here’s what we ordered: ❤ ❤ ❤
For the Lady, Latin Salpicao Taco for Php 105. They only serve 1 piece of taco but the pork was generous. It wasn’t dry and had the perfect amount of seasoning, vegetables and mayo? (if it’s close enough)
My love’s order: Quarter Southern Spice Chicken for Php 235. This comes with 2 sides already. In this case, dirty rice and some fries. 🙂
For us both: Garlic Calamari for Php 235. THE Bomb! ❤
And he’s not even close to done! 😀 Mango Cream Sticky Rice for Php 145.
Remember the last time I saw Amyll? We planned to meet the guy who made her nervous, sick and strangley happy at the same time. 🙂 And he finally arrived last 19th! This dinner was planned way ahead of his flight. 😀
Dinner at All4u in Century City Mall.
BABOY, INDEED. Headed out for some coffee at I’m Hotel after.
Nice to meet you, xtian! and all your seriousness. 😀 Happy for you, Pine! ❤
As a self proclaimed foodie, I immediately opened this link: http://booky-wordpress-staging.us-east-1.elasticbeanstalk.com/blog/new-unique-poblacion/
and ofcourse with excitement, I really wanted to try everything on the list as soon as possible. So, I asked my judey if we can. and he willingly said yes. (thank god he wanted icecream after dinner.)
The place is near A-Venue Mall. You’ll probably miss it so better just look for this tarp outside their store. They don’t really have an actual signage yet.
Everything is done in their kitchen! 🙂 It’s always nice to see small cafes in a small neighborhood turn into something!
We finally decided to try Chocnut Banoffee and Nutella Mangga. ❤
Its amazing how it’s homemade. right? Chocnut Banoffee really tasted like banoffee pie! There were no odd tastes. It was not too sweet either. The Nutella Mangga does not really tastes like nutella enough. The Mango flavor I think overpowers the chocolate flavor. Nonetheless, it’s worth the try. Plus, the owner and staff were really nice.
I enjoyed my first book with this author. Thus, I think I’m sort of obligated to finish the book. I’m not saying that it was indeed a boring book but I wasn’t compelled. I didn’t fall in love with the characters and the boy was not charming. It felt like he was just this tall, awkward guy as I pictured him to be.
Goodreads: Lola Nolan is a budding costume designer, and for her, the more outrageous, sparkly, and fun the outfit, the better. And everything is pretty perfect in her life (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood. When Cricket, a gifted inventor, steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.
Anyway, here are my highlighted lines:
Perfect is overrated. Perfect is boring.
You’re delightfully screwy and I wouldn’t have you any other way.
His kisses are gentle and rough, spearmint and cigarettes.
But I could tell I made him nervous. For some reason, this only made me bolder. (I’d want to have this effect on men too. I wish I still make him nervous. )
You can’t avoid your problems forever. No one can.
How quickly one’s allegiance changes under the influence of a compliment.
Does Max tell people about me? (Does he tell stories about me to other people too? I hope so. :/)
A fullwattage grin.
You’re late. You waited. — walking the dog scene.
Cricket defined the hours of my day.
His eyes twinkled as if it were the best day of his life. ( Do I still have this effect of happiness on him?)
You’re like a shooting star.
You’re doing the girl thing. Saying happy when you’re not. (the boyfriend always tells me this. Haha. And he figured out when I’m doing this)
I love his laugh. It’s rare, so whenever I hear it, I know I’ve earned it.
His gaze locks into mine, and his face alights like the stars. He smiles – a full smile that reaches all the way to his eyes – and it’s sweet and pure and hopeful.
Go out with me tonight, tomorrow night, every night. (just heart, melting.)
His name explodes inside of me, like cannon fire.
When it’s right, it’s simple.
People are clapping him on the back and trying to engage him in conversation, but Max’s eyes are only on mine as he brushes past them. (UGHHHH. I want this scene. Everyone was clamoring for him and yet his attention is to me. J ❤ . as he goes down the stage and kiss me?)
Sometimes a mistake isn’t a what. It’s a who.
When cricket stood behind lola to serve as a cloud to cover the heat of the sun. ❤
Life isn’t what you get. It’s what you do with what you get.
The energy between us ricochets so fiercely that it scares me.
His gaze burns like an African sun.
Do you think things have to be easy? For it to work? I mean, yes, but… sometimes there are extenuating circumstances that it prevent it from being easy for a while. But then people overcome those circumstances and second, third, fourth. Whatever it takes, however long it takes. If the person is right, then yes.
There are some people in life that you can’t get over.
I know you aren’t perfect but it’s a persons imperfections that make them perfect for someone else.
If I’m the stars, Cricket Bell is entire galaxies.
I’m here. I’m wherever you are.
*** I want someone to write a song for me, about me and dedicated to me. I also want to be one of the girls who had songs dedicated to them.
Because we don’t actually have anything planned for the night.
Relish Special Sisig for Php 295. No wonder they attached their name to this dish. It was crispy and it certainly was special.
Behold the Chimichurri Chickenn Kebab for Php 395 – Boneless Chicken Chunks marinated in their special chimchurri sauce, skewered with onions and tomatoes served with aoili sauce. Not a fan of chicken BUT, I happened to finish this dish somehow.
But good lord, had an awesome time with this guy. Dinner and Massage with the LOML.
He finally listened to me! ❤ Erwan Food it is for date night. 🙂
We picked out our orders the night before and we had a hard time! Let’s go with the easy one first. : Bagoong Rice for Php 145
Pork & Shrimp Laksa for Php 245 with Crispy Tofu, Chili Oil, Boiled Egg and Sesame Buchi. I lovedddd this! The consistency was thick which I assume was made from scratch rather than just powder. The taste was really strong.
General P’s Chicken for Php 220 – Battered Chicken, peanuts and Orange Soy. It was alright. Nothing like Recipe’s. 🙂
Crispy Baby Squid for Php 180 – Plum Glaze, Chilis, Fried Dilis and Spiced Peanuts. The love was crazy about the shrimps.
