Sidewalk Cafe

Sidewalk Cafe

Alda and i had dinner together today. :) we met up after work. and tried the newly opened Sidewalk Cafe somewhere near our place. i think it's been less than two months since they opened. like all cafes around here, they also offer other goodies aside from drinks.

this is what we tried -

Hickory Spareribs

Korean Beef

the beef is tender, which is good. and flavorful too. :) but the serving size is not enough for one. way too few slices of beef for me. meanwhile the spareribs is yummy too. and bigger than the beef. :) so far so good.

we talked and talked over dinner. :) and while i was in the washroom, Alda paid our bill!! i was supposed to treat her, but she paid our bill already. smart girl. haha! it's my turn next time. thanks Alda! :) she also gave me a top which she got for me during her Thailand trip. yes, she's sweeeeet and thoughtful like that. :)

im posting separate pictures of us because the one where we are together is blur. :( i didn't noticed it while we were there, just now when i transferred the pictures here in my computer. so here we are, happy as always. :) after dinner, she met with her boyfriend Renz, and watched his basketball game tonight. :)

*wrong white balance for the pictures. sorry for that. ;)

P.S. why are some pictures here so grainy? but if you click it, it's not grainy anymore. can somebody help me with this? is blogger shrinking it? or is it just my browser?

*for quite some time now, i've been feeling sad for some reasons. but thankfully, i got a chance to talk with a friend (who's my spiritual leader in many ways) before lunch during Sunday and she talked some sense in me. haha! well.. after all things that's been said and done, i realized how selfish i am. and from now on, i'll learn to appreciate whatever is given to me and i won't demand anymore. :) i need to change, i know it's for the better. ;) and i'll enjoy every moment. ♥

*on Monday, we all went to New World Hotel's M2M (Morning to Midnight) restaurant and had a buffet dinner for Auntie Cherry's 40th birthday. :) i loved the desserts more than the main course. :) and of course, i got to see everyone again! :)

*Francine and i met for lunch today (finally!!). we have to be quick because i still have to go back to work so we just ate at Tasty's. she's on leave for one week! and she's going to Hongkong and Macau this Friday - Monday. how fun is that! :) i'd love to go with her but i still have some commitments here that i cannot leave. it's been awhile since we last saw each other and i really missed her!! :) oh, we accidentally saw each other last night at the train station! is that counted? haha.

*it's soooo hot today! so hot that i feel so thirsty and dizzy while at work. it rained for awhile tonight but it's still hot. tsk. and the highlight for today? my good little brother reformated our computer and all my pictures there got deleted. i don't have a copy of it in my laptop. only very few. and that really makes me SAD. :( i don't know what to do. so i better fix my pictures here and print them before these too gets lost.

that's all folks. come back for more. :)

my classmate James came over to my house today to bring the Coffee Jelly Mousse i ordered from him. :) we were supposed to meet somewhere else, but because of the pile of work i still have to do, he was kind enough to come. :) we talked about how we really miss school.. and our other classmates of course. like who has work already, and where they are working. he recently resigned from McDo. and is now finding a new job. i told him to work in a bakery company since he's really good at baking. :)

the coffee jelly is yummy! Grace ordered one too. ;) James also makes yummy Blueberry Cheesecake! :)

somewhere in between, D and i found time to watch the much awaited UP this afternoon. :) i really love it! in one particularly insightful little scene, one of the characters says, “Sometimes, it’s the boring stuff I remember the most.” it’s a sentiment that easily explains the appeal of this film. it’s not the high adventure wackiness that will ultimately make this film stand out. it’s the poignant little moments where we watch the characters deal with life and loss and friendship and dreams, all the familiar little things that are already present in our own lives.

just took this shot from our window. the clouds never fail to amaze me.. the shapes, the colors. ;)

time is slow today. i kept on looking at the clock while at work, wishing for it to go faster. what makes it more slow is that while everyone is having another long weekend, i don't have a holiday tomorrow. still have work, and i have to be earlier than usual tomorrow. boo!! :(

yesterday, i joined visitation along with Grace, Meliza, and Erwin. it's been so long since i last went on visitation. and when i walked pass some people at church, their faces showed that they were surprised to see me on a Wednesday night. is it a big deal?

after visitation, Grace and i bought some food and came home and we watched TV together. we talked
a lot after watching without even noticing the time. after that talk, i realized that there are really so very few people you can trust. im glad Grace is one of them. ;) that's why i can't blame my cousin who doesn't like it very much when coming to church. she tells me that many people there aren't really going for God.. instead, they go to gossip. it's a sad reality, but it's true. people talk behind your backs. people talk as if they've known you all their life. they judge.

i hope and pray that the Lord would keep me. and that my eyes will only focus on Him and not on what's happening around me. it's comforting to know that though people may fail us, He won't. ever. :) thank you Jesus.

im looking forward on having this book:
the countdown - 19 days. :) yey. im sure Spraks won't disappoint his fans. ;)

well, i think that's all for now. my eyes wanna close already. i have to get back to my tutee and prepare for tonight's meeting. thanks for dropping by. :)

such a busy week gone. such a busy busy week ahead with Hannah's exams this week till next Monday. i have so much to share.. but i still have no time to update a lot. but believe me, i miss writing. :)

anyway, let's talk about today. how's your Monday so far? the internet connection was so slow sometime last week! it sucks. im glad it's okay now. this afternoon, i accompanied my Aunt to see an obstetrician, and she did an ultrasound. but the doctor left already when we were just about to enter the clinic.. tsk. so we'll be going back tomorrow morning. my brother and i ate together at Tasty before i came home. the Tossed Noodles with Fried Dumpling was so goood. i don't know if it's really good or it's just me being too hungry, haha! ;) im so sleepy already. after having dinner together with D and my family last night, i slept right after changing my clothes! it's early.. that's a first after a long long time. and it was gooooood. love it! just what i needed. i'll sleep earlier tonight too because im gonna crash already. till next! will you come back? :) ciao. buona notte.

random Saturday

A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water log stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if your rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?

i watched this movie today on DVD and it's beautiful. :) the last part is a bit sad because Marley died. dog lovers would love this film. i always want to own a dog, a little one. but sometimes im scared when i see one at streets especially when i think it's following me, haha! what an irony. someday when i live in a bigger house and not in a building, i hope to own a dog like Marley - a thoughtful, loving, and loyal dog. :)

i went to church tonight and heard that im assigned to share this Thursday night during our Bible Study Meeting. and honestly, im scared to death!! yes i want to talk all the time and i love to talk. but i can't stand in front of a lot of people, with all those curious eyes staring at me. oh no. just the thought of it makes me wanna cry already. *sigh* but i know that it's not me, but the Lord in me will do it. im nothing really. but even so, He bought me with a great price. :) and for that im really thankful. because of Him, i have a future to look forward to. :) hay. please pray for me, that all these fears in me would go away. i hope i can make it. err, He'll make it. im sure. ;)

so after church, to cheer myself up a bit, my cousin and I walked all the way to McDo to buy twister fries. yum! :) it's so good because it was newly cooked when we arrived. funny how little things can make someone happy. even for just awhile. :)

off to bed. goodnight all! :)

cold Monday night

after a long day at work, this is what i need - a cup of coffee! :) i LOVE coffee. especially when i have company. a friend or even a book will do. it's Monday again, and while everyone is looking forward to the non-working holiday on Wednesday, im not exempted from work. hay. there's nothing to look forward to for me except the weekend.

on other news, today is D's first day at work at this company in Paranaque. it's far.. and boring because he can't text while at work. but i can deal with that. i think. he said that the people there are great. and im happy for him. :) i hope that he can adjust easily in his new work environment.

while watching the news today, i heard that there's another typhoon coming! i wonder when these crazy weather will end. i have to sleep early tonight because im not feeling so well. goodnight! :)

Sunday, August 2, 2009

it was raining again when i woke up. such a sad and gloomy day since yesterday. the whole country is so sad too because of former President Cory's passing. hay. anyways.. after church today, everyone came to our house and had lunch together to celebrate my cousin Aileen's birthday in advance. we had lots of food for lunch! and im still full upto now. hehe. she'll turn 22 on Wednesday (which is a Non-Working Holiday!). being the eldest of us all, she really is someone you'll look up to. :) she's like a sister to me. we see each other every Sunday, and our stories never seem to end. she knows my flaws but still loves me. she's never boring, and with her, it's always fun. and yes, she's one great cook too! :)

the poster up there is made by my cousin Christine. :) it's soo Aileen. ;)

* i love you, Bru! :) *
