Last month, my best friend Hanna and I celebrated our birthdays! Cheers to 26 and 24 — with a big ass beer and more spirits…Hanna3Hanna4Hanna5Hanna6Like this tall shots of Patron XO!

What’s a decent hangover without pancit canton? Tell me?! And of course, I just had to have time with the fambam as well – though it’s really getting hard to have all of us in one table these days, this’ll do for now. I hope I can rile them up for a summer getaway or something. IMG_6304IMG_6315Mendokoro Ramenba 1Mendokoro Ramenba 2

But even without hangover, I’ll choose noodles anytime any day anywhere. I finally went to Mendokoro Ramenba in Salcedo Village. I’ve been tweeting and telling you guys that I’ve heard so much good about this place – and yes those are all true! No frills ramen with a small menu of less than 10 items and just one of the most glorious broth I have souped up. Gad, even in the middle of this hotness aka the devil’s asshole, I would go up there to soup up.

And for those busy days (yes, even the weekends are busy ok), I go to local coffee shops like Local Edition to work on stuff. March has been incredibly busy with both meeting potential collaborators and meeting friends. Local Ed’s cold brew is just right to wire me up and put me in the mood to work plus Perea is a quiet haven – aka without the mall crowd – to hole up and focus on things.

Weekends – hellos, see-you-laters, and goodbyes

Whew! Finally got time to write here... I am starting to lose my mind over everything that needs to be done. And this blog is on that same list.

IMG_6213.JPGI’d really rather not discuss this one

Let us start with goodbyes though. So the previous week has seen meltdowns and bouts of anxiety attacks over a lot of things. Change is good, I guess, but my body couldn’t keep up. With change, goodbyes are in tow and it’s never easy letting go no matter how beautifully Elsa sings about it. For one, leaving my best friend and where we lived for four good months wasn’t easy. The place was so peaceful and beautiful and convenient – and not to mention there were a lot of cute boys in the area. Haha! But it wasn’t the plan to stay there for long right from the start. I knew that we had to leave one way or another. It might be shallow for other people, but I find it difficult to leave the place even even though I now live in a more convenient distance from work.
IMG_6200.JPGlol quick selfie break

Meltdowns and anxieties = I need ramen in my life. I was craving ramen for the past few weeks just because I was so stressed about moving and nigh shift and expenses and boys (please refer to the photo way above, haha) I dragged friends over to Ramen places in the metro. The nearest we can get is Ramen Nagi in Greenbelt. I can swear by their Butao Ramen that it’s one of the best I’ve tried. I know, I know, Ramen seems faddish but what a stressed boy got to do when all he wants is soup?

One visit ain’t enough – I had to bring Nica here as well. I tried the Akaoo Ramen instead and god my mouth was on fire, sure it was! Ramen Nagi has branches all over the metro, so I sure won’t miss it though.

Local Edition has a special place in my heart. It’s one of the places I’ll miss going to frequently. Especially, when I used to spend weekends there with a special someone… who’s no longer special. It was good while it lasted though… Gah. I don’t wanna talk about this. Dating is hard, okay? #hugot | Cue: So no one told you life was gonna be this waaaaaayIMG_6224.JPG IMG_6225-0.JPG IMG_6226.JPGIMG_6228.JPG

I spent the last day before I move out with friends from Muni! It was so nice to have spent it with people I don’t usually see – people who most probably I will still not see that often. We met up at Commune with a bunch of other Muni people, had dinner at Project Pie, and holed up for drinks and games at Karl’s place. Ah, such is life. If only I could see friends more often. There sure was a lot of see-you-laters that night…IMG_6229-0.JPG

Say hello to my new place! I moved stuff from Nica’s place to my new place yesterday yet I still haven’t unpacked and my things are just all over the place. I hope I can muster the strength to do so this week because I don’t want the filth to pile up. I still can’t believe I’m out of my happy place though. I need my adjustment period!!! Then again, it feels like a restart at some point – a chance to start over and leave regrets and pain behind. I hear ya, Sam Smith! I do hope decorating this space will cheer things up a bit. I’ll keep you posted on that!

Weekend Diary: Veg, BSO, and Reads

20140707-205054-75054936.jpgI like chill weekends when no one is rushed and you can just take a walk… and the weather, good; meeting up a friend; having coffee; and driving around town.

20140707-205054-75054085.jpg

20140707-205057-75057352.jpgThe perfect trifecta of my breakfast is coffee, orange juice, and… no not veggies, but — CHEESE! BLEU CHEESE! SACREBLEUUU!

20140707-205056-75056544.jpg

20140707-205058-75058159.jpgEver since I joined the vegetarian program in the office, I now find ways to eat (and enjoy!) more veggies and incorporate it to my diet. It goes like this – since most of the time I eat in the office, I eat more vegetables… but I didn’t give up meat — like WHY WOULD I OKAY

20140707-205055-75055741.jpg

20140707-205058-75058968.jpg

20140707-205100-75060570.jpgI convinced Ella to go to the Travel Expo. The mission: find the cheapest flight to the northest of all the north islands in the Philippines.

20140707-205226-75146036.jpgSay hi to Ms. Val who found me a week worth of vacation!!! ON MY BIRTHDAY! It’s still next year, but what the hell. I am excited!

20140707-205227-75147747.jpgJust because

20140707-205229-75149329.jpgThe embassy of Japan had a live traditional painting x guitar session at the Travel Expo

20140707-205233-75153036.jpgAnd Cai is back home and got me a copy of Monocle’s design issue

20140707-205230-75150153.jpgAnd more magazines — this time from the Travel Expo

20140707-205232-75152067.jpgWalking around town and running errands made me deserve a good glass of iced Sagadan coffee at Cool Beans in Maginhawa. Check out their traditionally weaved table runner!

20140707-205230-75150985.jpgAnd a piping hot bowl of shoyu ramen from Shinjuku at Little Tokyo after watching Eiga Sai. A day of watching Japanese films only made me wanna shove my face to this bowl

20140707-205231-75151301.jpg

And yes, because I’m mature like dut.
