Recipes at Greenbelt 5

One of the benefits of having a blog is that you can try various activities, cuisines and food joints even some hole- in – the wall restaurants sometimes and you get to share to the world your daily conquests and new finds which caught your eye and your appetite. Good thing Pat is quite well versed with some of the best food joints here in the Metropolis and good thing too that we both love trying out something new especially when it comes to food! 🙂

Sumosam on a Sunday

This is a late post since I wasn’t able to blog about our dinner at Sumosam last Sunday which also turned out to be Father’s Day due to other pressing matters that took a toll on me and my schedule this week. Anyway, moving on Mom decided to treat the whole family to a Japanese restaurant to celebrate Father’s Day.

I drove out to Robinson’s Magnolia with my siblings since Mom already went ahead to the venue since she already had been out since the morning. We met her there at the venue and decided to order already while waiting for our parents since they took such a long time and my brother was getting quite agitated already at the long waiting time.

Luna Cafe

For the past few weeks or so, I seem to miss working out whether it is lifting weights from participating in the Group exercises in Fitness First (Where my cousin used to tag me along as his guest when it’s my off), from the swimming and kick boxing sessions I used to do every Wednesday and Friday before I started my MBA in Ateneo or from my usual running around the Fort with my workmates and friends after work. I don’t really get to work out a lot now due to my back aching from time to time and I’m usually tired already by the time I want to work out so on one particular weekday Pat and I decided to come out for a quick run along the Fort.

He went to my workplace and as I regaled him of my stories of how my day went, we decided to eat out first then go jogging afterwards since we were both hungry already and we couldn’t function well running low on carbohydrates and food. We came across this new joint, well for me it’s new since I noticed it just recently so we decided to give it a try. It’s called “Luna Cafe” owned by no less than one of our classmates from MBA Fille and her husband Lino Cayetano.

Charlie’s on an Wednesday

Since I just had an MRI for my whole spine after class last Monday and since we have been eating out almost on a regular basis already, We decided to advocate a healthier lifestyle so that we can pack on more calories from our food ventures haha! kidding! 🙂 No, actually it is for us to be healthier and also to look better since we want to shed off those few extra pounds we already gained over the course of the past few months  of eating.

Sip and Gogh

It’s been almost a week and three days since I last updated our blog. Anyway, with work and school and all the other stuff and fun activities that I want to do lining my calendar for the coming months. We tried out something new again and this time it’s one in the name of art.

I have always wanted to paint and play with colors, much more make my own masterpiece from a blank canvass just like an “art genius” or a much esteemed painter. However, I wasn’t gifted with that kind of talent so I guess we just have to make do of what God bestowed unto us and develop our God given gifts to our fullest potential.

Lugang Cafe on a Wednesday night

Since we both had no classes last night and I got off at work at around 6pm,  we were supposed to jog around the Fort since were beginning to advocate a healthier lifestyle. However due to the heavy downpour we did not push through with jogging and instead headed out to SM Aura to eat dinner and try something new in their newly opened restaurants at the 5th floor Sky Garden.

We were supposed to eat at the NBA Cafe on the 5th floor of SM Aura however, we were dissuaded when there were no photos in their Menu and also their food was mostly composed of burgers and snacks. We saw the long queue outside “Lugang Cafe” and since our curiosity got the best of us, we decided to see what was all the fuss about and made the waitress reserve us a table.

Edge of Tomorrow

Bill Cage: “What I am about to tell you sounds crazy. But you have to listen to me. Your very lives depend on it. You see, this isn’t the first time that we’ve had this conversation. The invasion will fail along with every soldier you are sending. We lose everything.”

This piqued my interest when our Information technology Professor in Ateneo told us about emerging technologies in the status quo and how some of these are depicted and are portrayed in Tom Cruise’s movie “Edge of Tomorrow”

This film was actually an adaptation of the Japanese novel authored by Sakuraza, Hiroshi entitled “All you need is Kill”, the rights to this literature was brought by the year 2009 and was sold to Warner Bros. Pictures for production. As of the June 17, 2014 we heard a lot of flak  and even some commendations about this movie. So we decided to see for ourselves if it’s worth all the talk.

The Fault on Father’s Day


“I’m in love with you,” he said quietly.“Augustus,” I said.

“I am,” he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. “I’m 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.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Find a Guy Who.

 

“A girl can wait for the right man to come along, but in the meantime that still doesn’t mean she can’t have a wonderful time with all the wrong ones.”

I have come across countless articles on Thought Catalog and Elite Daily about “How to spot your one true love” or “How to know that He’s worth keeping?” With the advent of more opportunities for women. We are now in the millennial age where women are not simply constrained to the household tending to the chores, the kids and the husband but at the same time striking a balance with her kick-ass, high flying corporate job.
