It’s been another good old two weeks since I last updated my blog. I missed blogging big time! 😦 Maybe this year I’ll make it a point to spare a day or two to just compose and draft articles so that I would not have to contend with all my backlogs and end up procrastinating during the last minute.
Anyway, as January comes to a close a lot of remarkable events had transpired and it looks like this year is off to a great start. Aside from me finishing off my thesis for my Graduate school and landing a new job in a reputable company. Food ventures and a lot of events had also been in the pipeline of this month so without further ado, let me tell you about my recent venture to the much talked about Food Park within the confines of Katipunan called “The Yard”
There are those kinds of days wherein you just want to lock yourself up in your room or in the attic in my case and just ruminate on life lately and how you plan to go about it in the next couple of years down the line. I guess, I still haven’t got everything figured up as of the moment. But then again, that’s the beauty of it right? Sometimes life catches us off guard and surprises us with opportunities that we never thought we would come across and we are changed for good. 🙂 So just last week I was invited to this Bloggers Food Tasting at Soban by Aldous from Aldous Ate the World. I wasn’t really keen on the place since it just launched last May but since it was just located in Eastwood it wasn’t that hard to find. Little did I know that I was in for a treat that night.
I love eating out and trying out various new food joints! 🙂 Guess that’s mainly the reason why I became a food blogger in the first place right? From randomly trying out various food stalls and new joints which seems to pop around here and there around the metro to sticking it out with my ultimate favorite food staples like mushrooms and STEAK! 🙂
But of course, I am very much welcome to new adventures and trying out new food joints especially when I get to satisfy my gustatory cravings and when it offers a wide selection of dishes and house specialties to choose from. How can one say no to that? The call of the food is simply irresistible for me so when one of my blogging idols and friends Richie from The Pickiest Eater invited me out for a Sunday Brunch at the HEAT I couldn’t pass up this chance. 🙂
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.
