This isn't a proper review, but it's just something I wanted to share. Several friends and I decided to go to the other end of the city to eat at a certain Mister Kabab one night. I had been there while I was still studying at uni (it's not so long ago, honest! Ok, maybe not).
It wasn't in the same place it used to be in Quezon Avenue, as the restaurant moved to West Avenue. The last time I went so long ago that I can't remember what it used to look like and what I had back then. I was pleasantly surprised at how bright the place looked and how cool it was, even without the air-conditioning.
And the queue!!! It was like several meters long when we got there at about 8pm. Sheesh, I had no idea it had become so popular.
Had this double beef chelo thing -- forgot what the exact name is and how much it cost, but it's definitely just a little over P100 (was that even helpful?!). It was quite good and very rich as you had to slather all that margarine and yogurt over your rice. So fattening!
I will definitely go back and give it a proper review soon.
I've seen The Wolfman over the weekend and I've actually found it an "ok" movie, despite the poor ratings it received at RottenTomatoes.com.
For those who don't know, The Wolfman (starring Benicio del Toro and Anthony Hopkins) is a remake of the 1941 classic black-and-white film of the same title.
Some idiot Twilight fan actually had the nerve to say that this Universal movie did a COMPLETE REMAKING of the wolf pack from the Twilight Saga. Apparently, it gives the werewolves a bad name and makes them look like some deformed mutation of a rabid dog. (See, I told you she was an idiot). Read all about it here.
Anyway, what really caught my attention is the Wolfman's leading lady -- Emily Blunt. She is very pretty and oozing with charm. I thought I'd seen her somewhere before and when I looked her up, she turned out to be Emily from The Devil Wears Prada!
Who would've thought that she was the same person???
Having seen that chick flick, although Emily Blunt was a complete scene-stealer, I would not have known she would ever be leading lady material.
Makeovers really can make wonders, huh?
Just in case you're wondering, I'm still alive. My updates had been getting few and far in between, but it wasn't intentional. I didn't go on holiday and I wasn't that busy neither. I just felt that blogging had become a chore. I used to love posting all about my brain farts and bits about my boring life.
I was just being lazy, I suppose.
There had been so many things that I had to think about lately. So many in fact, that I don't know where to start talking about them. So I'm thinking about taking more time to do that. I even ended up thinking why I was blogging about me when even I think I'm boring myself out?
I will try to get my life back on track soon, though. I want it to be more than just about surviving. Life is too short to waste it all on working.
I had written a post before about how some people get obsessed about plastic surgery. Most of the time, women are the ones who get addicted to it. As far as I know, men are not easily bitten by the plastic surgery bug -- except for the late Michael Jackson, of course.
Heidi Montag is apparently one of those women who has a plastic surgery addiction. She is a relative unknown to me. I only hear her name in passing when I watch paparazzi or celebrity gossip shows like TMZ or The Daily 10. Heidi Montag used to be Lauren Conrad’s roommate in the reality show called “The Hills” (a show I’ve never seen), who married her co-star Spencer Pratt. She was said to have had a breast augmentation, a nose job and some collagen injections, for starters.
I honestly do not understand this girl. She’s only 23 years old! How could you be so obsessed with the way you look, when everything will go south once you reach your 30’s anyway? What a waste of time and money. But I guess being addicted to making yourself look perfect does that to you. I bet many Los Angeles plastic surgery clinics are laughing all the way to the bank from all the business they are getting from wannabe Julia Robertses and Angelina Jolies.
Admit it, wearing jeans is only comfortable when you had worn them at least a couple of times already. Even then, they still restrict your movements. But we like the image they project -- cool, like James Dean.
But what if you had a pair of jeans that are as comfortable as your pajama bottoms? Here's a quick video about the latest trend called PajamaJeans --
I note the guy that said if his girlfriend wore a pair of PajamaJeans to one of their dates, it would me she was ready to go home with him. What a pervert!
Do you think you'd wear one of these? As for me, I won't know until I see it for myself.
Single ladies shouldn’t feel excluded from all the Valentine’s Day fun! I, for one, prefer to spend Valentine’s Day with my girls. The BF doesn’t mind me doing so, as we both find the whole thing much too cheesy to spend with each other. We can be romantic whenever we want to, anyway.
There are loads of stuff that single ladies can do for Valentine’s –
- You can go on a girls’ night out. The attached ladies who want to come should leave their husbands and boyfriends at home, so the girls can enjoy each other’s company during dinner or have a few drinks at a bar.
- You can go on a quick holiday outside the city. If dinner seems a little to quick and easy, going for a day out or spending the Valentine’s weekend in the countryside should do the trick.
- Give each other chocolate gifts. Why wait for a man to give you flowers or chocolates on Valentine’s Day, when you can enjoy a box of gourmet chocolates with your closest gal pals?
I’m sure there are loads of other things that single ladies can do on Valentine’s Day, so the above is just a few options. If you’re single, there’s no need to mope around -- just call your girlfriends!
The BF and I were driving along EDSA southbound one time, when we chanced upon that huge Century Corned Tuna billboard somewhere around the Boni MRT station. It was the huge banner with this photo of Derek Ramsay --
I gawked at it as we were driving past and I was counting his near-8 pack abs with a murmur.
Mildly irritated, The BF asked me "Since when did you care about a guy's abs?!"
I didn't used to, that was true. I couldn't care less about a guy's muscle tone before, as long as he looked (sort of) healthy and had broad shoulders. I just laughed off the question.
But if I had to tell him the truth, I would have told him...
To many couples, February is the month of romance and love, mostly because Valentine’s Day falls on that month. Getting married in February is usually considered romantic. As for myself, I find all the hoopla surrounding Valentine’s Day very cheesy, so I don’t think I will ever consider a February wedding (whenever that even transpires).
One thing about weddings that I find interesting whenever I attend weddings is the souvenirs. I’ve gotten loads of stuff from the weird to the classy. Every time I receive wedding favors, I always wonder if they were the type I’d give out if it was my wedding. I don’t particularly like the ones that have the couple’s photo on it. Don’t ask me why.
Giving out mini-cakes, cookies and sweets in custom packages are also nice because they can be consumed and will not clutter up the wedding guests’ homes. I had received quite a few fortune plants as wedding favors and I really quite like them. Since they’re alive, they give out a refreshing vibe around them, compared to an ornament that may not be designed too well and is just a waste of space.
How about you, what do you think will make a nice wedding souvenir?
I really miss blogging for fun. Nowadays I fee obligated to do it, just to keep my sanity. I am hoping to get more time to do this, but it has been impossible recently. I can't even be a contest whore anymore! Boo!
There are loads of movies out this week: The Princess and the Frog, Where the Wild Things Are, Case 39, Messengers 2: The Scarecrow, Did You Hear About the Morgans? and Dear John. Out of that long list, I'm only looking forward to see Disney's The Princess and the Frog. Young girls nowadays should have a modern princess to look up to -- Ariel and Belle have gotten quite old!
