Life is like ice cream

I’ve been so stressed out for the past weeks. I could only sleep for a few hours, my mind is always actively running, I’m breaking out so bad and I feel restless all the time. All along I thought I’ve already mastered the art of beating up stress. But, no. Thank God I have my Dadi, good friends, good food and ice cream. Yeah, ice cream!

This Sunday, I was in the office for the board exam’s review. I’m the Course Director for this year so I have to be there during Sundays. One of my closest friends back in college paid a visit, since we haven’t seen each other for almost a year now. The night before, her boyfriend for 6 (or 7 years), finally proposed to her during an org’s event. Too bad I missed that episode in her life. I remember that we started planning her wedding though her boyfriend (now her fiance), had not shown any sign that he would be proposing to her soon. Girls love to assume, right? Hahaha.

Me and Janette (who's showing off her engagement ring ^_^)

The ring
When we’re about to go home, we decided to “ambush” another super close friend of ours (who has been hibernating for quite some time) and asked/forced him to meet us and have ice cream near my house.

Three little pigs who love ice cream *oink*

The three of us had too much to talk about and we consumed lots of ice cream, pizza and cappuccino (not in the photo) without noticing it. It was still raining outside then due to typhoon Mina, but nothing could stop us from pigging out. We’re happy for Janette’s engagement, stressed out from work and other stuff and… crazy happy to see each other again.

Nice Surprise

Mami and Dadi found their way to SM Masinag to watch Conan the Barbarian. Too bad they weren’t showing it there. We decided to look around instead.I bought an 801 Driptip for my Tank FX from VapeCo.

We also saw a Cars 2 promo using a real car, A Ninoy Tribute Exhibit, and Hello Kitty Eyeglasses at Executive Optical. Then we ate healthy at Bodhi.

As we were buying Iana’s birthday gift, we bumped into my old collegemates Jon and Abie. They treated us to coffee at Petite’s house.

Thanks for the One Piece and Naruto bandanas and instant Miso pasalubong guys! Have a safe trip back to Japan!

Art Circle’s Trigo Breads & Deli

Mami and Dadi’s favorite restaurant in UP Diliman.

Sisig, Chicken Schnitzel, Trigo Soup, Choco Hazelnut Cake

Great food. Friendly staff and chef. Quiet and relaxing place. What more can we ask for? A discount or “suki” (loyalty) card, perhaps?

The kuya waiter and lady chef also told us they are now offering catering services. Yay! We’re always asking them before about it in case that, you know, um, we want to avail their services in the future.  Months after our persistent inquiries, they’re ready to ‘feed’ 200 pax with their yummy yummy yummy food in an event sponsored by the Art Circle! Yay again!  But, they still don’t have a suki/loyalty/discount card. Hopefully, they will finally give in to our second request. *lol*
