The Superfriends @ The Collective

Because Eunice went to Vietnam without us, I brought them to Wabi-Sabi so we can pretend that we went to Saigon together. Haha. No, I just really wanted to eat their veggie pao. :p They loved the pot stickers and ban mhi. And in the battle for noodle supremacy, ramen murdered pho.


Besty Janice aka Jap and Besty Eunice aka Yo

After his meeting with Ford, Donnie followed. We made use of the presence of the colorful walls of the Collective. Kudos to the artists!


Artsy Donnie, in Tagalog… Maarteng Donnie


my default pose– pamewang!


I ❤ Jap and Eunice’s sense of style.


Jap outside the charming shop selling organic products, Ritual…


inside the shop, because Jap wanted a cup of robusta (adik!)


Too bad Colleen and Joko couldn’t join us! 😦

But it’s ok. The Collective is not going anywhere. Next Superfriends’ Makati dinner and drinks, we’re checking out all the shops!

Here are the pics from the eve of July 9.


Wabi-Sabi Ramen * 90php goodness
I liked it better than their pho, but I wish the soup could be tastier. =)


Wabi-Sabi Ban Mi * can’trememberhowmuch :p
This I liked. Like an Asian salad between halves crusty bread. Pero mas gusto ko pa rin ‘yung nasa Morong! 😛

Surfers kami. Bwahahaha!


Playing in front of Handlebar with these people helped me burn the calories.
Belated happy birthday, Paolo…

Ramen + Loveteam + Home > Usher’s Abs

I didn’t go to Usher’s concert last night. Instead, I attended a tweet-up at Wabi-Sabi and went to Paolo&Nicole’s birthday celeb at Handlebar.

I was “shy” in the first 15 minutes of the tweet-up because I didn’t know any of the people there. Sort of except for Thomas, who was anti-social for 9/10’s of the event. Anyway,  yaaaay I got to eat the Ramen in my 3rd attempt! Three is indeed a lucky number!  (Check out Ramen attempt Fail 1 and Fail 2) Loved the ramen! It’s better than their pho in my humble, zero-culinary-knowledge opinion. The Ban Mi Was also good, but I still prefer the ones here in Morong, Bataan because of the presence of liver spread. 🙂 Thomas made bawi (forgive my english-ing, haha) and treated Grace (aka divasoria) and I in B-side. 🙂 <—–  Cranvodka always does this to me– also talking about boys and how stupid and insensitive they are. LOL.

After my 3rd experience in Collective, I went to Handlebar for more alcohol and to share the fun with the awesome couple, Paolo Soler and Nicole Laurel. I was in the mood to listen to kickass rock and roll and Nicole’s band General Luna delivered. Sinosikat and Wally dela Cruz were also there for guaranteed kickass rockin’ and rollin’! Funfunfun times with the friends! I wanted to stay longer, but the besty had to leave because she had a surf trip early Sat and I had to wake up early to go home.

And yep, I am home. I’m in Bataan now with Mama and Daddy.

All the aforementioned are greater than Usher.

But I still wish one of my friends who attended the concert touched his abs for me.

Will blog the ramen pics next week!

A Night at The Collective

Because we love Miki and because we heart art, we attended …

This was her piece in the exhibit.

It’s called Hairline. The girls in the photo are Inez and Val. And yes, I’m the girl pointing (not giving a dirty finger) at the photo.

And this is me with Joko and Kwe. Kas, Dietrich and Christian were also with us… in spirit. LOL, no group pic.

This is with our favorite artist among the 20. WTG, Miki Giles!

That little lady sitting, my friends, is Tumblr superstar Saab Magalona. Her boyfriend was also one of the 20 artists who made the exhibit possible. I wanted to have a picture taken with her, but I had a blasted headache. Hence, I was not in my kapal-ng-mukha mood. She’s very cute in person pala and seemed down to earth. I followed her on Twitter right after because of.

I want this art piece in my room, even if it I will probably give me nightmares every night.

We also attended the exhibit, because it’s at The Collective and we wanted to try the ramen in one of restos there, Wabi-Sabi. Unfortunately, only the pot stickers, siopao and lemongrass tea were available that night. It was okay, since I liked both pot stickers and asado siopao. I’m not a fan of lemongrass. Joko liked it, though.

I was still hungry so we went to The Collective’s burger joint, Wingman. We had the attention-grabbing items from the menu.

We had the Wingman Burger (that’s Christian, btw). The burger pattie was delicious but the lack (seemed like it) of bleu cheese was disappointing.

This was definitely the source of joy in that brief dinner at Wingman. Say hello to Deep-Fried Snickers a la Mode.

And so that was my art and food night at The Collective last Saturday.

I promised myself I’d be back for more exhibits and to eat that Wabi-Sabi ramen.

(I did go back for ramen. But…. ): Check out next entry.)
