Watched “Tomorrowland” through a fund-raising activity. It was such a disappointment! It wasn’t as action-packed as its trailer! It has a good message and interesting story, but overall it was slow-paced. Ah well. My newly colored hair stood out more than the movie. :D

Tiny food sometimes packs the most flavor, and the same can be said for Shippam’s salmon spread & Balai Pandesal’s bonete. I bought the former at Landmark Trinoma, and I was really surprised that it’s quite good! It’s like super finely ground salmon flesh that’s then put together again, creating a “meaty” spread. Heck, it tastes much better than canned salmon! On the other hand, the bonete pandesal is a treat from Marc, and even without any kind of spread, it does taste great! Needless to say, these two make a great gastronomic pair! :D

At least 20 years ago, my father planted the seed of a really sweet mango. We’ve been enjoying the mango tree’s fruits for several years now, and they are always very sweet! I have no tree climbing skills, but I can still enjoy these lovely mangoes thanks to the Juan Tamad method: I simply pick up the fallen fruits! I’ve been eating these juicy babies since last night, and I can’t wait to get more! :D Sarap!

Oh how time flies! One minute we were cute, the next, we became cuter! HAHAHAHA! We may not be as close as when we were kids (literally & figuratively now), but know that I am proud of you for you know what. ;) HAPPY BIRTHDAY, payatot! Please make sungkit more mangoes for me when you go home again. :p

I totally had low expectations for “Spy” because based on its trailer, it seemed to have the usual slapstick humor from other action-comedy films. However, my friends and I really enjoyed watching it! I burped thrice when the movie ended, probably because of all the air in my tummy after laughing so much! :)))) Thank you so much for the tickets, 20th Century Fox!

Leo and I have been wanting to try Patio Vera for some time now, and we finally visited this lovely place today! So far, it is the best looking restaurant I’ve encountered in Marikina! It’s an ideal place for dates or fancy meet-ups! Seriously, ang GANDA talaga! :) Their food is a bit pricey, though. However, the dishes (based on what we had) came in hefty servings. This is just a condensed description, so I will definitely find time to write a complete blog post for Patio Vera! :)
P.S. What we ate: Dinamito (stuffed jalapeños with cheese and ground longganisa), Pasta Negra with calamares, carbonara (one of the best I’ve ever eaten!), liempo, and turones with coco jam. Muy delicioso!

Attended Angel’s birthday celebration at her crib! Thank you for the great food, beh! Spicy chicken adobo with potatoes for the win! :D
