Pics or it didn’t happen

There’s a 4-year-old kid here in our house named Mica (she’s the daughter of our ate) and everytime Praybeyt Benjamin’s trailer shows on TV, she just laughs hysterically and says, “Mama, panoorin natin ‘yan, ha!” And then, “Ate Oyie, panoorin natin yung, yung, Praybeyt Benjamin,” and some, “Ate Venus oh, si Vice Ganda. Hahahaha.”

So finally, my mom gave in and we went to Glo yesterday to watch. It was a bit of a shame because there were SO MANYYY good movies that were showing. In Time, 30 Minutes or Less, and Puss in Boots. I even asked my mom if we could just watch Puss in Boots since it’s an animated film naman, but, she just said, “Eh Praybeyt Benjamin nga ang gusto.”

Well, anyway,  we arrived there at about 1:30 and the movie shows at 3:45 pa soooo, Timezone! Yaaaay! My mom was exceptionally generous and gave us lots for load (that’s how she is when gets guilty for making me put up with things I don’t like HAHAHA) and since movie tickets come with those Timezone promos, we got even more. It was like playing wantusawa.

The movie was good, you’ll certainly laugh so it wasn’t much of a waste of our Php170. My mom and I kept looking at each other everytime the whole cinema would laugh at something we find baduy and she whispered to me at one point, “Atleast masaya mga kasama natin. Hahahaha.”

We also brought two my two favorite cousins in the world, Chen and Wawin, so it was extra fun. There was a point where we had to split because my mom had to take care of some business so Chen and I bought food. I felt that my mom just kept herself from scolding us because we bought so many things. Major popcorns, bigtime drinks, yogurt for everyone, and chips. Of course, we didn’t get to eat everything so we had so many “junk” food to take home. I’m so lucky to have Chen live so near, it’s like having a sister na rin that you could consider as your partner-in-crime and apprentice on how to have fun teenage years. :”>

About the title, I need to buy my own camera with my own money. It would have been sweet if I had some sort of documentation of fun days like this.

Healthy Living with Joel Cardinal and Venus Banaag

I cannot fully express with words the immensity of the pleasure I feel whenever I’m near
 burgers. And it always thrills me when you find that one special burger that tastes unlike any other. (It’s a talent that I have. I can romanticize ANYTHING.)
Moving on, today, Joel and I ate at *drum rolls* Stackers Burgers! And I think this will be my second favorite burger place, next to Wham, of course. And to you Zark’s fans, I’m sorry, it’s just not my taste.
I ordered one of the most unhealthy “salads” you’d ever see, their Barbecue Burger Bowl.
It’s a quarter pound of patty mixed with jicama, salad greens, cute little tiny tomatoes, corn, and some kind of dressing topped with bbq sauce. Pretentious never tasted this good.
As for Joel, he got a Jack burger :>
I know that the picture is quite unappealing, but the burger is really awesome it gives a food-gasm. Their patties are so good kasi, the tastes are well balanced. 😉
We also got a full order of fish and fries.
Joel said that the fish didn’t suit the whole “American” ensemble but I loved it, so. Haha.
It’s such a bummer that we only tried Stackers Burger now. 😦 Well, will definitely go back soon!
Yun nga lang, after eating, sobrang feeling baboooooy. But worth it. 😉


As of yesterday, we have had a house full of rambutan. And of course, that’s just a hyperbole. My mom just brought home so much of it, like, two baskets. And I used to love rambutan back when I was little, but now I hate it. And it’s all because I once ate a rambutan that wasn’t the least bit delicious, kaya ayaw ko na forever.
That’s my problem with food, even if I used to super want it, when I taste a bad one/a badly cooked one, I won’t eat it na forever. Like tilapia, I used to look forward to eating whenever I see na tilapia yung ulam; but one time, I ate a tilapia that tasted like mud, it was super blah, you can never make me eat a tilapia ever again.
Same goes with tasting a certain kind of food for the first time. If it tastes gross the first time I try it, I won’t taste it ever again no matter how much you convince me and say stuff like, “Pangit lang yung luto nun,” or “Hindi lang sya hinog.” Nuh-uh. No, thanks. Nope. Ayaw ko.
Now, if you know me personally, you would half-expect that this would be followed by some sort of epiphany on wanting something or whatever that is related; but it’s not. I just really wanted to share that fact about myself because I need to talk about food since I’m not tasting much of it these days.
