The Eat With Me Project

Here's a compilation of all the pictures I've taken with my boyfriend sitting in front of me on a date. To be honest, I never thought about collecting them before. Until I realized that in all the dates we've had, I've always been taking pictures of him on the other side of the table. Then, I had this idea - like that of Murad Osmann's photographs of his girlfriend which is totally cool! So, I put them all together and created an album on Imgur and call it Eat With Me.

Here's a collage. Enjoy!

A Beautiful Breakfast

Just a very short post on the most important meal of the day.

Some thoughts. Traffic in EDSA just can't get any worst. My usual 1-hour morning commute going to work is no longer applicable. Seriously. I mean, I suffered a lot because of this for awhile, being late and all. Until I got the "memo". (insert expletives here).

That really got me, you know. So, finally, I gave up another 30 minutes of my beautiful weekday mornings. The end result is this - breakfast in the office! To tell you honestly, I don't feel bad about this arrangement. Not only because I have never been late since, but most importantly because of the Belgian Waffles and the Malaysian Coffee, man! Seriously, I really think I'm a morning person now.

Here are 7 of my favorite breakfast meals I've had so far. There'll definitely be a lot more. 

1. The Coffles - The coffee and waffles love affair. And they lived happily ever after.

Marikina Hot Spots #2: Boy Yogurt

Marikina is a really beautiful place. The people are friendly, the streets are clean, walking and biking around is safe, the police and the local government cares about its people, places are within reach or are easy to go to and the best of all is its got great places to eat with family and friends. Isn't that awesome? Don't we all just love that?

Now, if you've read about my previous post about the Hot Spots in Marikina and you liked it, then I'm seriously gonna make a follow up on that now. Here's a treat for the sweet tooth. The very low-key Boy Yogurt.

Our First Time at Zark's Burger

It was a Sunday morning. We were on our way to Antipolo to do an ocular inspection on one of the resorts for team building. Anyway, I remember vividly the very first time Vince and I walked in at Zark's Burger Katipunan.

The Dog Named Boom

Well, since I'm starting to blog once again, I think it's probably time that we talk about my dog named Boom. He's a Male Golden Retriever from Bulacan. Or so that's what the seller told me. He's got no papers to prove he's a real Goldie so we really couldn't tell. Some says he's more of a Labrador because of his coat. Others say we have to wait about 2 years more for the bushy coat to grow. I say it doesn't matter. The dog is cute and I'm going to keep it.

So here's the story behind that.

Mang Frederick's Barbecue

I remember, when I used to live in Marikina my Sundays were always special. You can wake up late, watch lots of TV, have a feast at lunch and probably sleep some more in the afternoon. One of the most anticipated things that happens during Sunday is going to mass. Of course, being a Catholic this is normal. Habitual if you ask me. Sadly, though, since I left the compounds of our ancestral house, I hardly made a trip to church and hear mass anymore. Anyway, I'm really not going to talk about going to church here (like in this post and in this post too). I am actually going to tell you about a simple barbecue place just outside the church we go to on Sundays and why it is so popular to locals in Marikina.

Make Your Own Sandwich Bar, Shopwise Cubao

Have you tried making your own gourmet sandwich inside a grocery store? We have and I’m here to tell you all about it. 

In the middle of a busy grocery store there lies an island bar brimming with all kinds of sausages and cheeses one can ever find its lifetime. Oh, but this is normal, you’d say. No. Because in here when you buy any of the sausages and cheeses they have on display, you can ask them to cook it and prepare it for you in a sandwich. It's Le Gourmet Make Your Own Sandwich bar. Ok, first things first. Taking direct pictures of the products displayed and sold anywhere in the face if the earth is prohibited. That is why these pictures are precious and must I say should only be seen on this site and nowhere else.
