Vday 2012: Happy Heart and Happy Tummy!

Besides getting my fill of amusement from reading Facebook Valentine’s status updates, which btw made me realized that I am not the most aggro person I know when heartbroken (haha thank God), I also had my fill of nomnoms from friends and industry partners. 🙂

Thse Krispy Kreme donuts with our company’s logo greeted me in the office on Valentine’s morning. Nope, we are not mutants. That’s not the X-men insignia. :p


Lunch was spent at Chicboy-Jupiter with my babe (the gallant pig) and our chaperones (Anna and Mommy Joyce hehehe). What is nagbaboy lang talaga kami sa lechon, extra rice at side dishes. Of course, I just got to have my fave combo of CB6 and sinigang na salmon! :))


We were invited by our friends from Papa John’s for dinner so Vincci, Rain, JP and I went there for another pizza and pasta feast! I really love Papa John’s Arrabiata. Totally compensated for me not liking their carbonara, which happens to be one of their bestsellers! :p My newest favorite now is their SUPER PAPA PIZZA. At least, kahit pizza, nagka-super papa ako ngayong Valentine’s. Wahahaha! Anyway, who do you think wioll be the best endorser of Papa John’s? We vote the gorgeous KC Concepcion. Hulaan kung bakit. 😉


For dessert, I met up with Joko, Marie and Vlad at Petra & Pilar. Cheesecake for them. Beer for me. :p Well, chicken barbecue for Vlad.


The following day, our friends from the Philippine Star held an exclusive dinner for us in Cabalen. good to know that their buffet has gotten better. Just don’t get the Japanese food. I love that there’s a fondue station and they’ve got really good lechon de leche. 😀


So those are the evidences that my tummy was really happy this Vday 2012. It follows that my heart’s also smiling. Afterall, no man is making it cry now. Nyahahaha!!! It’s taking its time and it’s excited for possibilities. Who knows? Maybe on 2013, I’ll have him with me for a Valentine’s foodtrip. Huwag lang niya ako aagawan ng pagkain. :))

Speaking of happy and food, i’ll be going home to Bataan tomorrow and will be staying there until mid next week for my Mom’s 60th birthday celebration. For sure, magmimistulang patabaing baboy na naman ako doon. :p

See you next week! Enjoy the weekend! Love more and eat more! 😉

Margherita and Megatron

Shani went to Greenhills Promenade to get our Transformers: Dark of the Moon tickets around 4pm and the only seats available were for the 10pm 10:45pm screening. Note to self: never watch a sure blockbuster in Promenade on a weekend ever again.

Because we had a lot of time to kill, we spent the first two hours eating at Papa John’s. Like watching a movie in GH, eating in Papa John’s was also a first for me.

I ordered a Papa John’s Pasta Bolognese Jr. Meal (with a glass of Regular Coke, 120php) and Cream of Mushroom Soup (49.00php). The soup, I liked. A lot. The pasta, I did not. At all.  Joko had Pasta Carbonara and didn’t like it either. We shared a plate of Potato Wedges (90php) and a small Pizza Margherita, 290php. The wedges was just your regular-tasting spuds, while the pizza, in all fairness was really good. It was served with chili and butter. Mmmmm… butter! The Margherita  made up for our disappointment from their pasta dishes.

When I go back to Papa John’s, I’m sticking to pizza and soup.

After shopping, getting our sweet fix– Green Lantern KK donut and coffee for them, Shiok’s Milo Dinosaur and Mexicali Arroz a la Cubana (whaaaat? may saging naman na kasama, matamis yon! hehehe) for me, and talking about gadgets/books/geekery (nahilo ako, I swear), it was finally time to go to the Cinema. But wait! We claimed our tumblers of popcorn and drinks first. For a 320php 3d ticket, you get free popcorn and iced tea/water.

Oww-kaaaayyy. Transformers 3. I don’t know if I already told you that I did not watch Transformers as a kid. The movies, I only watched two weeks ago in preparation for Dark of the Moon. This was of course from my bestfriend’s appalled shouts of “Whaaatttt? Hindi ka pa nakakapanood ng Transformers?” “What’s wrong with you?” “I’m giving you my dvds. Watch!!!” So I was pretty fired up to catch the 3rd installment of the Michael Bay/Steven Spielberg blockbuster. I did not expect a lot because friends who watched before me said that it wasn’t as good as the first 2 films.

And guess what, they’re right. Indeed, Transformers 3 stays true with the universal rule of trilogies. Suck, suckier, suckiest. Mwehehe. Anyway, I still enjoyed watching it because: 1- Hello?!?!! Buzz Aldrin!!! 2- John Duhamel *wipes off drool* 3- Ken Jeong (I think he will not sign any contract if it doesn’t stipulate nudity, lol) and 4- Awesome, awesome effects. I did not regret watching it in 3d.

I will not write more ‘coz I just might give off spoilers. To all those who have not seen Transformers 3 yet, I do not discourage you from watching it. See it, just do not expect anything genius from the dialogue and plot. And also, let go of your love for Megan Fox. But I won’t blame you if you miss her when you see Carly (the new girl with a vavavoom body and blah appeal) talk to Megatron.
