the chicken rice shop

We discovered this newly opened hainanese resto and boy I’m glad we did because I can tell that this one’s much better than hainanese delights! *guilty laugh* SORRY!!! I don’t mean to compare. I’ve only tried the latter once so……:P

Anyway, the first time we went there Bri ordered the roast chicken noodles soup (not sure of the exact name) while I ordered the hainanese chicken rice meal (ANO PA BA?!?!). We also got the spring rolls (which Bri liked so much, unlike me) and the pechay dish (shall ask bri what it’s real name is). Everything tasted good especially the rice; and even though I wasn’t able to taste Bri’s noodles, I was craving for it the day after because it sure looked good especially on days like this (soooooooooper gloooomy).

minutes later……I already know what it’s called: PAK CHOY (the pechay dish hahaha! thanks babe!)

Of course we had to take a picture of the storm aftermath and here’s our rating!!

I brought 2 different clothes for that day (i forgot why), but when I saw him wearing his striped tee, I did not hesitate to wear my striped top too! HAHA! Masabi lang eh! Even though it wasn’t a coincidence at all, still we have this knack for “coincidentally” wearing terno clothes just like during our 1st, 2nd, 4th (?) dates, the cardigan date, plus this one too!

It was also during this date when he proposed to me…..CHOS!!!! ahahaha when he finally gave me my long-awaited trodat!! Yes, I knew he had one made for me and I was anticipating this day more than a couple waiting for their first born, or a drug addict drooling for his MJ or whatever drug there is! (BAD analogy, sorry! but you get what i mean! I’m sooooper exaggerating here because I was the only trainee left without a trodat in our hospital hahaha).

2nd time we ate here, we ordered from the very same waiter and sat at the very same spot so I guess everyone recognized us. It was very humiliating but I had a great time still!

This time around, we were on a tight-budget so it was good that we were craving for the same dish and got the barbecue chicken (ata?) and their sooooooooper yummy, not to mention, addicting CHICKEN RICE!

I doubt that it took us 10 minutes to eat all that. I’m guessing it was around 9.8 minutes hahahha. Kidding aside, I think it was more like around 5-7 minutes, tops!

Last time we were here, he got me a trodat, this time, I got him something too! I wouldn’t dare compare prices with him since mine wasn’t as expensive as the one he gave me, nor would i compare the effort to have our presents for each other made since I didn’t have to leave our room to make my gift for him, but one thing’s for sure: it was made out of love *ehem* *ehem* and creativity! I always thought that personalized or personally-made (those are 2 different things! haha) gifts are the most special ones, so it doesn’t matter how much it costs or where you got them, as long as they’re given time, thought and tralalala (wala na ko maisip sorry! :P)

P.S. shall blog how i made this necklace! haha!

In fairness, it looked good with Bri’s pink top! haha! Proud potter!!

my 2nd/3rd photobooth pic/neoprint whatever

I’m posting this as per my best friend’s request but i warned her that it had some rated SPG shots that i had to cover with smileys. I’m sorry if I had to post pictures of us like this. It’s just that, this is the only place (?) where I can feel free to talk about what I cannot on Fb or twitter. Here, where only 4 people who I know personally, can access my pinakatatagong secreeeets! hahahahaha!!!! anubayaaaan! madrama na sana eh!

this was taken last week, couldn’t remember the exact date and day though! We panicked coz the touch screen wasn’t sensitive enough (thus the kiddie like scribbled names) plus there was a timer so it was like we were in a huge time bomb about to explode!!

ooops march 21 pala yung isa! haha!

 this was taken just last monday, our 10th monthsary! this would probably be the simplest and &$^&^%(&(#**#est photobooth picture out there! You could even see the wall of the booth because as usual, we were panicking (and fighting) at the same time because I chose the wrong pics and didn’t had the chance to prettify (ooops i googled it, there is such a word hahaha) the photos!! But still, we made up and watched the Hunger Games after!

We stayed for more than the time allotted for us inside the booth since there were no people lining up after us and because we really liked the lighting inside! HAHA!!!

I have no doubt in my mind this is the finest message you will ever receive from a fellow human being. Read it, apply the information and pass it on.

Isn’t it amazing that George Carlin – comedian of the 70’s and 80’s – could write something so very eloquent…and so very appropriate.

A Message by George Carlin
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways 
, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete…

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
