Traveling Up-North, Let’s Go!

If anything, I missed publishing blog posts.  I have been away for too long I did not even realize shoutbox has already expired. HA! I probably need to fix some add-ons here in my space.

DISCLAIMER: PHOTO-INTENSIVE =)

Anyway, I have gone North last January with some of my friends.  Awesome Ilocos trip was awesome! =) Words won’t suffice.

Photos from Vigan, Laoag, and other places we passed to Pagudpud are coming..

PS. Doing separate posts. This one’s long as it is [hihi].
I am. I am in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.

Mixed Bag

I had to check again when did I post my previous entry--took me long again but not compared to how long the gap between my previous post and the one before that. The procrastinator that I am, I always tell myself I’m gonna update again but that didn’t really happen until this very moment
Posting random photos with Taguig friends but look forward to the latter part of this post. It’s gonna be good, I tell you. Munchpunchy. =))

On to the highlight of this post: FOOD.
Some October Saturday, I decided to try out this pizza place—well, I had it for delivery. :)

Sandy’s Pizza is good. The first time my sister and I ordered, we had the 18” Meatzarella pizza and the next time, 14” Thai Chicken pizza and mozzarella sticks. I tell you, it’s delicious! Other than that, it’s a lot cheaper than, say, the 18” Yellow Cab pizza. It’s thin crust, too. Gotta love their mozzarella sticks; however, it’s priced higher than Stackers’ mozzarella sticks which cost around Php 120. Not much of a difference but I like to save moolah, you know. But other than that, it’s a must-try. You can actually check out their multiply site for their updated menu
Yesterday, my buddies and I decided to meet up and watch a movie (Real Steel is the shizz! It's beyond awesome) and eat somewhere in Greenbelt.

Going for Kitchen is a bit impromptu—a good kind of impromptu. =) As soon as you walk to the restaurant, you seriously get the cozy feel. Dining tables are not individually set for 2 or 3 or 4 people. Theirs is a long table (which fits around 12 people—3 groups of four), also matched by their rectangular set dining hall lights (which design, by the way, is a paint splatter). My friends and I shared their Washed Ashore and Sword In plates and their Dear Darla-ish pizza (yes, they have that thin crust pizza with shrimp with alfalfa sprouts and arugula leaves). THIS JUST IN: the pizza is called Spear It. Delish! And expensive! Ha ha. Worth it, though. Kitchen is located in G/F Greenbelt 3, just beside Seattle’s Best.
Before we decided to dine in Kitchen, we originally planned to make a trip to Café Breton, which is steps away from Kitchen.

Everyone has got to love crepes. Well, I have not much of describing to do here. We had Déjà vu (banana and chocolate) and Le Magnifique (mangos and cream) crepes. Both are good but I like Le Magnifique more. Other than it having ice cream on the side, it’s not too sweet compared to the other one.
Speaking of sweets, I love macarons!

Earlier today, I reunited with my ever-favorite: French macarons. =) Anyone treat me to Bizu macarons? Please? By the way, macarons shown above are from French baker.
Okay. wrapping-up this post already. ;)
And it's because I love you that I can't be selfish with you...
