It’s 2 out of 3 now!

Game on. Nica celebrated her birthday in Black Sheep last night. I must say, it’s one of the best restaurants I’ve been to yet.

For those of you who don’t know, Nica, Wong, and I have this annual thing to celebrate our birthdays in very classy restaurants. We have a minimum of 6k to spend for the celebration, but one can be creative on how it shall be spent. Wong had his at Tagaytay. He paid for our lodging at Canyon Woods and food at Sonia’s Garden. Nica, being fancy as she is, spent all the budget on Food, blocking the VIP area for ourselves. It was amazing. We were at the second floor of the loft looking restaurant, overlooking the basic goers haha just kidding.

The food was great! My favorite was the oyster with tapioca. It’s new to my tastebuds and it’s definitely something to try. My second favorite was the Foie Gras made of duck liver. Yum! But before you give your icky reactions to the food, the flavor was nowhere near Reno liver spread that you know. It’s sweet, and it melts in your mouth. In fact, it’s almost like the Ferrero Rocher chocolate balls, only better. There was also this cool technique on how one freezes the ice cream. The waiter used liquid nitrogen – he poured it to the liquid concoction, and created a smokey table. I initially thought it was dry ice, but then I realized, why? haha.


After the sumptuous dinner, we had our drinks. I got a glass of cranberry juice (since I don’t drink), and had mature conversations with everyone. Wait, by mature, I mean current events, careers, etc. Not the ones you probably had in mind. hahaha!

So yeah, overall it was amazing! This put pressure on me for my December dinner. Tough, but not impossible. Hah!

Apparently, one of my usual readers told me that this post is a little short of details, so I’m gonna bare it all like a Marilyn Monroe. Here goes —

OMG I had a really tiring day today because I went out shopping with my amiga from Bicol, Sarah. She came back to Manila last Thursday (I think) and I only got to meet her tonight. It was really fun, especially the chikas we caught up on.

It was a pretty simple plan. Sarah and I set to meet up at Gateway around 2pm so from there we can go to SM North. Unfortunately, I had a long working day yesterday that I slept late, and woke up really late – at 1:34pm. I texted her and asked if we could reschedule at 3pm. So she agreed. Before I sent the text, she was already asking me if I was going to ditch. Funny thing to ask but I guess she knows how I usually ditch out the last minute. Anyway, so I kind of slacked off eating lunch, taking a bath, and dressing up. I even got to watch Eat Bulaga for a couple of minutes. *Sorry Sarah*. So I got to Gateway 30 minutes late, did a little ‘omg you always do this’ conversation, and then had ‘snacks’ at Pancake House. I ordered some salmon cake topped on brown rice goodness. Gosh, it tasted like sand. Not that I have already tasted sand, but I figured it’s the closest thing. Thanks to all the other toppings like cucumber, raisins, and other healthy stuff, I managed to finish it. Oh, and by the way, Sarah and I got jealous of the pancake at the other table and decided to get one also. We only ordered one and shared so please don’t judge us. It was a tolerable meal. Skipping the hatred towards the food, I think the fact that I was really sleepy is worth mentioning. Don’t get me wrong, the catch up sesh was great! I was just really really tired.

Anyway, we talked about a couple of pacool people who can’t seem to keep their nose off of other people’s business. The conversation was full of wtf faces and facepalms as we tell each other about our similar experiences. Don’t you hate people like that, especially when they give negative unsolicited opinions? Ugh, sometimes it even makes you want to staple their mouths.

We also talked about Annie’s antics. Everytime we meet, meaning Sarah and I, we always keep a portion of our chika time for any updates about our other friend, Annie. For tonight, Sarah told me about the 40 year old secretary. It was a detailed demonstration from how Annie talked, to the number of times the quotation was made in error, up until her hilarious reactions, that is, tearing up the paper in front of the employee. My gosh, I dream of doing that to someone. I can’t tell if I’m capable, but as Annie told me, sometimes you won’t be able to stop yourself when you’re already on that moment. It made me want to pay Annie a visit and just stay there while she’s working. I WANT to see her in action. lol. Putting things into perspective, she had a good reason doing so. Incompetence is just intolerable.

After the sumptuous meal, we left Gateway for SM North. There were so many people there! People wearing jeje caps, and jerseys. We first went to Annex, then The Block, then Trinoma. We were able to purchase a lot of awesome clothes today. Definitely productive. It was all great except for an unexpected cross of paths. Anyway, not worth mentioning.

So end of day, I bought a couple of cute shorts and a polo. I tried them again at home and they’re all awesome. I was planning to buy more because it was sale in almost all the stores. I, however, remembered that I bought a laptop just two weeks ago. It kind of caused my wallet to suffer financial trauma, so I thought of giving this big spender a break.

Nothing really special. I went to Jasper’s place today to copy movies and series in my ehd. It was an overdue plan. In fact, two weeks ago, I asked Jasper to come to my house for the same business(and it was his first time at our new house). But thanks to my ancient laptop, all I got was porn. No judgment.

Anyway, at least now I’m all buckled up for the next weeks. As you are aware, my golden purse  just got emptied by my recent purchase, and I plan to stay home this and the next weekend  just to buy enough time until payday. A little crunch here and there would get me through for sure, just like college. Yes, just like my chicken-fillet-McSavers-meal-veryday days.
