Sushi, Zombies and A Little Respect

Last Saturday was exceptionally fun. ūüėÄ

Spent the entire day with my quiznight teammates (aka my favorite nerds) eating, laughing and singing. =)

Yakimix

Joko opened Yakimix at 11am. Our lunch there lasted for almost 4 hours. Sinulit talaga ang buffet. At napatunayan ko na bagay talaga sa amin ang name na Team PG. Gluttons kung gluttons. What is Patay Gutom? :p

Above are photos of the food I ate. Three plates plus grilled stuff plus dessert. Partida pa ‘yan kasi naka-“diet” ako ngayon. Iwas¬†sa kanin at sweets.¬†

Last photo of course is the mandatory group pic. Left to right: Aji, me, Shani, Jeeves, Maj, Rudi, Vlad, Maricris and Joko.

Blooey, Mike, Joseph we missed you!!! ūüôā Hmmm… sino pa ba na-miss namin? Ika nga ni Jeeves… *evilmaniacallaughter*

Zombadings

After an awesome lunch and a really long kwentuhan about childhood memories also known as Joko and Shani’s full of win moments, we went to Glorietta to watch Zombadings 1: Patayin sa Shokot si Remington.

I wanted to see this because I am a big Roderick Paulate fan. Since he’s the only reason I needed to catch Zombadings, I didn’t watch the trailer, didn’t read any stuff about it. hence, I had no idea that Eugene Domingo is also part of the cast. Shempre, mas achieve na silang 2 na favorite ko ay nandoon.

I found the movie hilarious but I still liked Ang Babae sa Septic Tank better. There were a lot of predictable scenes in the movie, but it’s okay because of the darling cast. Ang cute¬†and ang galing nila¬†Martin Escudero (Remington) and Kerbie Zamora (Jigs). Ang refreshing nung character ni Lauren Young. Awesome si John Regala para siyang nakababatang Johnny Delgado. Even Janice De Belen was ok, eh normally naiirita ako sa acting niya.

Roderick’s and Eugene’s roles were small but they provided the funniest scenes. As expected.

Paalala lang sa mga straight guys na manonood, ihanda niyo ang inyong sarili sa “intimate” scenes. Siguro naman sa title pa lang na ZomBADINGS, gets niyo na dapat ang pinapasok niyo. ūüėÄ

Buti hindi natuluyang magwalk out sa “stairs scene” si Rudi. buti na lang pinigilan siya ni Maj. :))

Videoke

Gilmore after the movie. I do not want to tell you were we went for videoke as it’s a very special place. We don’t want people “stealing” this golden hole in the wall. Hahaha. Sobrang panalo kasi talaga. Sabi nga sa Zombadings— AWARD!!! Hahaha!

When we entered our room, this was the first things we saw.

 

Heckyeah. Livin’ it up at the Hotel CALIFORNIS! Ahahahaha!

Anyway. Aji started our videoke sesh with Counting Crows’ Mr.Jones. I followed with Katrina and The Waves’ Walking on Sunshine. May dramarama ever rin ako, but you know me, hindi pwedeng magka-videoke night na walang SPTD or Saksak Puso Tulo ang Dugo songs.

My favorite performances (performances daw o) were:

1. Halik by Joko (Oo, yung sa Aegis. Birit kung birit!)
2. Dreamlover by Shani (Kay Bobby Darin, super oldskool. Cute ng lyrics!)
3. I Do by Marie (Hay nako, Lisa Loeb. Nadali mo talaga.)
4. Gold by Mike (Song of choice ko sana ito eh, pero mas may K si Mike kantahin ito kaysa sa akin. Duh.)
5. These Dreams by Aji (Mejo may kurot ito sa puso ko, but oh well. :,))

And of course, the song that has been blasting in my skull since that night hence the title…

6. A Little Respect by Vlad (Hindi na Always ang favorite Erasure song ko dahil dito, hahahaha!)

I would also like to pat myself on the back for singing my all time favorite OPM keso song, Mahihintay sa ‘Yo by Dingdong Avanzado (lyrics: mahal, mahal na mahal kita, hindi ako magbabago asahan mo itoooooooooo) AND barbie Girl by Aqua. Ako na si Barbie, ako pa si ken. Nagspecial participation sana si Mike, pero parang si Cookie Monster ang voice niya.

Ended the night with the song WHY CAN’T IT BE by Rannie Raymundo.

Hindi naman naging suicidal ang ilan sa amin dahil sa kantang ito. Thank God we still had some laughs (reminiscing Joko’s and Shani’s childhood stories/empathy exercises/matapobre punchlines) at Ersao, where we they got¬†some tea to cap off the fantastic¬†night.

TODAY IS OUR RESIDENT MICROBIOLOGIST’S 45th 30th BIRTHDAY! (sabi ni Joko? Kwe? matanda ka na eh)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MIKE!

WE WISH YOU MORE KNOWLEDGE IN GEOGRAPHY, A HOT COUGAR AND IMMUNITY FROM YOU-KNOW-WHAT!

Whatta Mix!

Saturday, 7:30pm is probably the worst time to want to dine in Yakimix – Greenbelt— or any branch for that matter. The line was loooooooong and my patience was short. But because we wanted to eat Japanese,¬†Sugi was far away and I didn’t want to walk and Nanbantei also had a waiting list, we sucked it up and dealt with it.

After an hour and a couple of minutes, the attendant called my name. Available table daw. Kaso lang for sharing. Grrrr. I said a silent fuck you and told her we’d wait until we get our own table. After 5 minutes and maybe 5 seconds before I thought I was gonna pass out, we got in.

middle part of the buffet (salad and desserts)

Everything looked good. I didn’t know where to start with their wide selection of Japanese, Korean and Cantonese offerings. Haha, as if! I started with Japanese, of course. :p

my 1st plate– sushi, tempura, sashimi, sauteed stuff (haha I don’t know what else to call it) and sukiyaki

Everything tasted good, except for the Hawaiian Maki. But then again, I hate everything with pineapple. Also, I wish they used Japanese rice for the sushi and maki. Nakaka-distract yung medyo matigas yung mga butil ng kanina kasi. Hehe. My favorites were the Unagi Sushi, Ebi Tempura and  Sukiyaki.

my 2nd plate– fruits and salad (plus pahabol na ebi tempura)

The veggies and fruits for the salad were all fresh. There were 4-5 dressings to choose from. I chose the lemon-something (whaaaat, I’m no kitchen genius) and liked it. Their melons were pale and not so sweet. Fail. The dragonfruit was surprisingly good though. Kung saan mababa ang expectations ko, dun naging Pass. Haha.

what was on my¬†3rd plate…marinated pork, chicken and beef

No doubt about it, the grilled bacon was the best. Followed by the chicken.

a closer look at desserts, there’s ice cream on the other side

my 4th plate… chocolate mallow cups, butter ube spongecake and cheese ice cream

I did not like those mini-cups at all. I suggest they take it out their buffet. The cake and ice cream were ok. Goldilocks and Magnolia, go fig.

my dinner buddy, the grill master. if he could do it, so could you :p

It seemed fairly easy to operate the table grill even if we had to call one of the staff to help us. I didn’t get to try it. I was useless. Hehe.

and that’s me, very hungry hindi lang halata

I enjoyed the Yakimix buffet. For 600php, it was ok. Meaning, don’t expect anything extraordinarily yummy!¬†Pumunta ka sa Little Tokyo kung demanding ang tastebuds mo! :p Also I enjoyed because I did not charge the buffet like Enzo (the bear) did. I chewed my food slowly and practiced pacing. I also did not have more than 1 glass of soda (add 65php for drinks), so I did not have an aching tummy (what is empacho? lol) after.
