Sabi ni Simsimi...Ü

This was a screenshot sent to me by my Friendship Ahren, earlier today during my shift. I can't help but laugh at this. Hahaha!☺ 

Takot si Simsimi sa 'kin! hahaha!
 Ahren: Maganda ba ang Friendship kong si Benting?
(Friendship ha, bakit mo kaya naisip pang tanungin si Simsimi? Eh obvious naman na isang malaking check yan. hahaha!☺)

Simsimi: Hindi! Ganun talaga pag mataas ang fighting spirit ng sarili.. Bwahahahaha!!
(In fairness, tama nga naman s'ya, kung sa fighting spirit lang, madami ako n'yan!☺)

Ahren: Hala lagot ka sa Friendship Benting ko braso pa lang nun pamalo na.
(Ah ganun, eh kung ikaw kaya paluin ko dyan?! Hihihi!☺)

Simsimi: Joke lang, maganda talaga siya pati sexy, kaya nga like pa din siya ni b****
(Dati, ayoko maniwala sa mga sagot sa akin ni Simsimi, pero ito talagang paniniwalaan ko! Hahaha! At sino kaya si B****? Hmmm...)

Maligayang Kaarawan, Bessy!♥

If I remember it right, it was pasta and burger that started out this best friendship 2 years and 6 months back. Thank you for cooking my birthday pasta ever since. Happy 27th, Juan Carlo Aquino! I love you!♥

Recycling our gift for your 26th birthday. I'm sorry I wasn't there to celebrate your 27th with you.

If there ever comes a day when we can't be together,
keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever.

Prijatno at Balkan Yugoslavian Home Cooking.Ü

As a follow-up to my previous entry, GeeBee and I eventually made it to the metro late last night. And since we have not actually celebrated his birthday yesterday because of his CET (we just had a pre-birthday pig-out the day before yesterday), we decided to have a post-birthday pig-out. This time, we went Yugoslavian (Serbian)! I had no idea that there was even a Yugoslavian resto in the city, and I had no idea what their cuisine tastes like, but since GeeBee had a friend working there, we gave it a go.

From Greenbelt 5, we walked going to Perea Street, and when I saw the facade of the place, I wanted to ask GeeBee to just try something else instead, because the place looked expensive, but he said his friend told him that the price were ok, and true enough, it really gives value for your money. 

I thought it was pronounced "bangka" because their "L" looks like an "N" to me. Hihihi!

Birthday shot: Jameson on the rocks!

Hahaha! He's irritated of me taking his photos!
Balkan has a very nice interior, I love the wall of photos at the rear end of restaurant. 

Sige na nga, it's my time to shine! Nag-shine nga ang oil sa noo ko!:P
Unlimited rice? No problemo!

They normally serve the off the grill items with fries or rice, but as what the server suggested, we can order it with fries and we can just ask for rice at no added fee!

Thank you so much, Ramona and Mitch, for making GeeBee's Serbian burpday an amazing one!

And since we were at the Greenbelt area, GeeBee didn't miss the chance to have his photo taken with Bessy's ad photo at Piandre, he says (in Ilonggo), "Model pala talaga si Kuya JC, akala ko joke lang." hihihi:

Kanamit sa Bacolod!Ü

I had 2 primary reasons for flying home (to Bacolod) yesterday: first is my little big brother GeeBee and second is Mama.

GeeBee is graduating from high school and wanted to enroll in Manila for college. He's scheduled to take his entrance exam at Adamson University on Saturday, but due to some family drama (or should I just say "Mama drama", hahaha!), he had to let go his dream of studying college in Manila and pursue it in Bacolod instead. I already purchased his ticket, so I still decided to bring him along to the metro, just so he can buy his dream Zoo York shoes (there are no Zoo York stores in BCD yet) as my birthday gift for him.

There was runway congestion when I left Manila yesterday, so my flight ended leaving an hour after the actual departure time. Upon touchdown in BCD, I met up with him at school (my alma mater, as well), and we headed to Bob's Restaurant as a pre-birthday treat for him. A treat for myself as well! I missed their giant cheeseburger so much. If it's food tripping that you're after, Bacolod is the best place to be.☺

When you are in Bacolod, you won't have a hard time looking for Bob's Restaurant as it is just located right across the Riverside Medical Center (Dr. Pablo O. Torre Memorial Hospital).

Bob's Suggestion (PhP 190). Giant cheeseburger with macaroni on the side, and a glass of softdrinks.
I was not able to take the photo of "Bob's Suggestion" (that's really what it's called) when it was just served as I was too hungry and too excited to think of taking photos.

Then we headed off to Bob's Cafe, it's just a couple of blocks from Bob's Restaurant, and splurged on gelato for dessert.


Gelatooo again!
Now the other reason why I had to go home yesterday was my Mama, she's been complaining of getting frequent headaches recently but she doesn't want to have it checked because she says she doesn't have anyone to go with her (only Papa and GeeBee lives at the house with her now, her four girls are out of the house already). Oh man, Mama's getting a little emo here.Ü And so today, being the sweet daughter that I am (char!Ü), I went to visit her doctors with her. For the initial diagnosis, it was hypertension level 2 (that was easy to guess, it runs in the family). But then again, look at what she had for lunch:
Yummy Baby Back Ribs from Lord Byron's (PhP 150)
With that being said, I no longer wonder why I'm pasaway, nagmana lang ako sa aking inay.Ü
Lord Byron's always get their baby back ribs sold out, so I suggest calling or texting them for a reservation before heading there. If you were to ask me, I think this can definitely compete with that of Racks. No kidding!Ü
