LIFE LATELY -

  • Went shopping with my blocmates, Earl + Jonathan and his roommate, Mira. Also, finally got the haircut I’ve been meaning to get for ages; now my hair is just until my neck and it’s the shortest hair length I ever got in my entire life
  • Since my Batangas Jail trip got cancelled over the weekend, I watched the UAAP Cheerdance Competition at the dorm’s TV room. It’s a shame that I didn’t really enjoy watching because of the noise of the other girls in the room and the poor television reception
  • Had dinner with my Eng1 classmate, KJ. We walked on the way home, and oh my, the university’s gorgeous at nighttime + light drizzle + soft breeze
  • Attended AIESEC’s orientation, an internationally-known organization. They offer global leadership, global volunteer and leadership programs for young people. Ugh, why can’t freshmen join organizations?
  • Post-celebrated JM’s birthday, another blocmate, at the ever-famous eLBi Square with my other blocmates, coursemates and friends. We went home around 2:30AM, thus we had to go under (or over, for the others *ehem*) the Raymundo Gate. And damn this, I’m never drinking again ((until my birthday))
  • Watched an interactive play, Love in the Time of Kapeng Barako + an indie film, 1st Ko Si 3rd and sigh, I honestly did not enjoy how they turned out
  • Had dinner with my high school batchmates + Ate Lyle in celebration of Michael’s birthday, a high school classmate. I had to leave early though, because of our dorm’s curfew and I couldn’t risk getting another violation
  • Frequent conversations with my other high school batchmates, Antonnette, Amabelle, Karen, Carlos, Paolo, and Marc. Yieee, I miss you guys ❤️
  • Eating pasta almost everyday; RIP money
  • Experiencing around 99 problems all at once, and academics are just like 0.5 of them
  • Missing writing poems and taking photos so much
  • Went home to Tagaytay with my blocmate, James, despite of the strong wind and rain. I nearly died (sudden acceleration and swerving, damn you), but at least he treated me to lunch at Cliffhouse and drove me home even though he lives an hour away. Thank you!!
  • Only had my Tuesday and Thursday classes this week, thanks to a holiday and class suspensions. Stay safe, everyone!!
Bourgeois Mondays: RYO's

For the past four weeks, my friends and I have been trying out premium restaurants around Los Banos. Since there are a lot food hubs in the place and we couldn’t dine in every single one of them (especially the pricey ones), we decided to try one out every Monday.

On our first week, we ate at Seoul Kitchen, a Korean restaurant found along FO Santos. The next one we tried was Gastronomeats which turned out to be my favorite! And the third was the LB-famous Bonitos, the most expensive by far haha.

Just last Monday, we had a taste of Recreate Your Own, a newly opened restaurant at Demarces. The store lets their customers create their own pasta by letting them choose their own noodles, sauce, and toppings.

Even though they also serve cheaper pasta and rice meals, I still opted to create my own food because that was what I came there for. Hahaha. I chose linguine, pesto, and sausage toppings. I also added olives. Create Your Own costs P119 and the additional olives just costs another P15.

The store also serves cakes and bars. I ordered a Nutty Choco Cake Ball (P20), a part of their Sweet Endings Menu.

Here are some of the rice meals my friends ordered. One meal only costs P70 with a drink already included.

They also serve sandwiches.

One thing I liked about the shop was that they create your pasta right in front of you. Nothing huge though ‘cause they just put the noodles, sauce, and toppings in one plate. It’s just that you see what they actually put in there. #transparent haha

Happy faces lol.

That’s it for the fourth installment of Bourgeois Mondays! And anyway, we only call it Burgis Mondays hahaha. Since I wasn’t able to blog about the first three places we’ve been to, we might dine in them again after we try all the restaurants in LB. Until the next pricey Monday!

In the beginning, you know, i was more of a realist, so if i hear a noise i’m gonna assume it’s a window and not a ghost…So now being on the show for ten years, it better not be a ghost because i’m gonna kill it.
