Babuyan Fridays!

Went out with two of my most favorite people and it was crazy! Our tummies went crazy, UST went crazy, everything went crazy! UST will forever be our meet up place and I’m sure this does not solely apply to our group. Also, I can’t remember the last time I was there, considering I live just a few blocks away. So near yet so far ang drama.

Anyway, KC was a little late so my bestfriend Karen and I had to meet up first and, HOMGGG we were so surprised at how the carpark building looks so much different now. Let’s see there’s Pancake House, BonChon Chicken.. I couldn’t recall the rest. Of course nandun pa rin ang McDo, KFC, Higher Grounds (of which clingy scent, or ODOR I could still recall. I’m sure everybody does. HAHAHA), Ice Monster, Imperial Kitchen, Greenwich.. My personal favorite, Ate Eva’s Grill and Pizzarollicious.. Pero ang pinaka unkabogable sa lahat ay ang 7-11 sa loob ng UST! It literally has tables and chairs for the students and to our awe, we took a few pics like we were outsiders and first timers. OFW ang peg.

Here’s KC and Karen in front of 7-11! (Wala nang Beanhoppers Coffee and Goldilock’s)

It was not supposed to be part of the blog but, whyyyy?? Bakit kung kelan wala na kami?! Hahaha. Anyway, vvvroom we go to Global City! Wow parang wala ako dun nung umaga. (I’ve been there in the morning for Victory’s Race For Life 2012 –but that’s another story.) So ano pa nga ba’t nagchismisan kami agad sa byahe! Hehe :P

Karen invited us to Mercato where his boyfriend Noel has a shawarma stall. M-E-R-C-A-T-O!! The fact that I work in BGC and haven’t gotten there ever is nothing less but ironic, so I was really excited!

Helloooo Noel!

Authentic Lebanese shawarma! Noel’s brother, Nathan, makes the dishes and sobrang yummy! You guys might wanna check it out when you’re there. The chicken shawarma is only Php70!

Okay here’s the fun part. While waiting for our shawarma we took the chance to go around. LOOK WHAT WE’VE FOUNDDD!

WARNING: May cause extreme cravings.

IMG_6703I SAW ISAW!!:) I had the large stick for Php 40. Happy Halloween!

IMG_6697This one looks familiar from college. And ngayon ko lang nalaman yung tawag dito. “DYNAMITE”. Sabagay, mukha naman. Dynamite din sa anghang. They should have removed the seeds and added more cheese :/

IMG_6695TURKEY!

IMG_6704The nice and funny waffle guy who gave us one of each for only a hundred bucks. Great deal! He said we’re going to crave for it so we better take home some. Well I guess he’s right. WHAT THE WAFFLE.

IMG_6713After the mighty dinner, we decided to hangout at the Big Bad Wolf! My newest favorite hangout place! Just look at my Instagram pic the other day ;) And, oh yeah they didn’t let me pay for the bill on my first visit so THANK YOU BBW! May acronym na talaga? Hahaha

*2 pics taken last Thursday

Went back to Mercato because we got hungry! Woop woop! Yeah we’re monsters like that. KC and I shared an order of this fulfilling shabu shabu. Sobrang solb. I love shabu shabu! This, and a few other stuff I’ve put on my tummy before we left like chocolate peanut butter cheesecake. Hehe

Had so much fun! Glad to hear Karen’s going to be Manila based again soon so we’re going to see each other more often. More babuyan foodventures to come!

Hooray for food! Hooray for friends!

MEGADETH Live in Manila

Attended the most hardcore concert ever, just after the day of my hardcore tooth surgery! I still made sure to be there after I was instructed by my dentist to have atleast 48 hrs of rest (reason being is to prevent bleeding and infection). How hardcore is that? I mean, I can’t just let my platinum ticket be put to waste, can I? -_- Aaaand, this happens probably once in your life soooo, kebs sa bagong surgery na gums! \m/

*Bare with me on a little downgrade on the pics.

Sobrang “trash” ni Gidds

YEAUUHHHH

My bodyguards for the night!

It’s either there is a grand funeral, or they tweeted each other to come in wearing the same shade.

Fans!

If not for the standing arrangement in the concert, I could have said that we had the best seat in the house!

Awesome show! Thank you Dave Mustaine! Although it could have been better if I caught a pick.. or your wristband -_-

 You can tell that it’s going to be one rocking show by merely looking at the concert poster. And to give justice to this statement, I am inserting a video below to help you visualize how I have been crushed to pieces by a sea of black people. You don’t have to finish the whole thing. 1:13 of the video will tell you enough.

P.S.: DO NOT press the play button if you are expecting a clear, professionally created video a.k.a. Please understand that the situation is something out of control. He he he.

It was awesome! Felt like a total rockstar for a night. Hahahaha. Or at least, a rockstar’s girlfriend. No wait! I AM a rockstar’s girlfriend. :)) I’m so glad they granted my wish on hearing the songs I hope they’d play! Also, I would like to share this video of Louie doing his guitar solo from a show with his previous Megadeth tribute band back in L.A., Rust In Peace! Check it!!

@ THE House of Blues, Hollywood CA

Did I mention it was my first time to officially attend a concert? No? Well, there.

Keep those heads banging!

Tuscano -Italian Wood Oven Pizza

Someday, I dream of traveling to Rome and having a slice of an authentic wood oven pizza. I am so much inlove with it because it’s 95% less oily than your regular baked pizza. Thus, less guilt! Hehe. Meanwhile, while my current budget capacity doesn’t permit me to travel to Rome, I will enjoy nomming on wood oven pizzas from the local pizzerias. Today’s food adventure is at Tuscano!

Hi Mar!

I was hoping it would work okay -_-

Complimentary bread, and a pitcher of fresh lemonade. Love the lemonade, so refreshing!

Yung pag may lakad kayong magbabarkada tapos ikaw ang may dalang bag.. Bag na din yun ng lahat. Locker? Hahaha This is Mar’s :) *oo na magulo na bag ko.*

Top of the list ;)

Cozy ambiance!

Wild mushrooms pasta

Pizzaaaaa! Half meat, half seafood

Indications of a wood oven pizza. Yum!

The Ghost of Krisha. *Weh*

Maybank recently announced it’s corporate tie-up with Tuscano and they’re giving away a free Tiramisu for Maybankers! Yay!

Tuscano is located at Burgos Circle, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

Free as a falling leaf.

What happens when school is over (for good), you miss your friends, there’s a cool bazaar happening over a relatively cool place, and you’re making the most out of the remaining days before your graduation? Answer? A day of pigging out and shopping, hanging out by the sandy playground, “cool place” hopping, and more grass. AND burning of moolah, which is unmistakably their common denominator.

There were three destinations listed on our itinerary for the day, topped by The Grove, for the SuperSale Bazaar. I knew my girls would say yes right away after asking them out to tag along with me. Well bazaars never fail in becoming a really nifty shopping haven anyway, so we ended up with an awesome loot. Shopping has caused us a rumbling stomach so we had to check out a smattering of food stalls, and took advantage of the breezy tambayan for photo ops. The rest of the pictures were taken at Tiendesitas and Eastwood.

*takes a deep breath* SO, here goes the shenanigans.

Opss, lip biting. Hahaha.

Here’s when I get serious in eating.

And here’s when it gets less serious.

KC, DON’T!

Stuffed cheeks. Eh di alam na.

Hacienderas. Joke. :p

Hiiiiiii! :)

Colorful kicks!

Hi! Bye. :D

ROXY: “Nasan ba kasiiii?”

ME: *nomnomnomnom*

Holla chikas!

Jump shots are overrated but, who cares? I JUMPED! :) Hi Karen, what’s up? I mean, what’s down? HAHAHA

Karen and Erica = ♥

Find the diff.

Yeah right, I wish I was this fair. Faker picture, boo!

Transferring the photo shoot scenery from grassy to sandy.

I thought we bullied all the kids away?

OHA.

Ewan ko ba, pero mukha talaga syang resort. Or maybe it’s just the sand.

HI!

Photo kudos to ate-na-may-dalang-dachshund. Sya na.

Joke lang. Mas appropriate dito yung “Find the diff.” na caption. *points up and down in a hasty manner*

Showcasing some tweeting skills.

(At Tiendesitas)

Oh hello there, baby! :>

These people are crazy shoppers. That’s why I love them.

“The lights are now on us..
The stage surrounds us..
But it’s you,
It’s you I remember.”

Ay mali, inappropriate caption. Hahahaha.

Kaya lang, BAWAL. I’d remain unemployed for the rest of my life. Hello, future Flight Attendant.

*ARTI!*

Too pretty to get utilized and deteriorated, but cute enough to eat.

With all due perseverance, I insisted on having dinner at Fazoli’s in Eastwood.

AND THIS WAS WHY.

Oh %^$@# these tasty bread sticks! The fact that they’re an eat-all-you-can item is enough to keep em peeps comin back.

Or perhaps, to keep Joanna comin back.

PASTE-a. :p

Self-timered. Voila!

NAH, di naman nakakapagod eh.

Zzz..
