Filling Station Bar Cafe’ is a Time-Machine

I just want to share how I’m so delighted with this restaurant. And it’s not hard to tell that the reason was it is instagrammable. (Well aside from the food food). We came here after we had dinner in Firefly Roofdeck DiningFirefly Roofdeck Dining. Our stomachs were already full so we were just looking for desserts and for more pictures. Filling Bar Station Cafe’ was just perfect. I heard that the milkshakes here were great. More importantly, this restaurant is popular because this is “Riverdale-inspired”. I was not watching Riverdale but it was still thrilling how this restaurant transports you to old American restaurants in the 50’s.

This car fixture is the highlight of the resto. It’s actually just one of the tables which you can occupy with minimum consumable order of P 3000.00 .

My brother insisted on tea only because he’s on a diet. But he wanted to take a photo and pretend he’s drinking beer.

Will I go back here? Of course! We only spent 1 hour only here and there are too many fixtures to interact to.And there’s the food I haven’t tried yet. . I even didn’t catch the details for the milkshakes. Maybe I’ll go back with my friends next time. It’s perfect for late night chikahan since it’s open for 24 hours.

Weekly Journal: New Haircut with Shower Bangs

July 23 Monday.

July 24, 2018 Tuesday.

As you can see. I haven’t written any for Monday. It’s because I slept immediately as soon as I lie on my bed. I remember thinking if I should write a blog or just a short addition to my short story. But as I contemplate, I fell asleep. Isn’t that the best sleep? The one with a kind of resistance on your part but sleep won and you didn’t even notice you fell into the deep snooze. I slept at around 10:30pm. For today, I am grateful that my urgent issue at work was finally resolved. I’ve been in a meeting almost the whole day. I talked with 3 different nationalities: Filipino, Indian and Swedish. I know I caught myself failing on my grammar or just can’t say anything that would make sense at all. I felt like I embarassed myself. However, when the issue was finally resolved, I got a funniest remark from one of the Filipinos. He said my English and accent depended on who I am talking to. They caught me specially having a different sophisticated accent when talking someone from Sweden. Hahaha that’s a really funny insight for me. At least its not that bad I guess. I mean the issue was resolved regardless. It means I have done enough communication.lol And because the issue was resolved, I was able to catch up on the Zumba Party organized by our building admin. I was late almost for one hour. I sneaked behind my friend Mommy J who was already from the start of the program. I secretly filmed her dance before I started to participate actively in the routine. Haha! Not too long after I arrived, it’s was break time already. My timing was great. The event has provided free coconut drink and banana.

After breaktime, we danced again for one hour more. I perspired and get tired a lot. And I was in for only half of the program. What more if I started from the beginning just like my friend. Haha! Before we went down, I asked my friend Mommy J to take a pic of me. Remembrance.

After getting my things, I ate my dinner and went home. As soon as I arrived at the dorm, the rain fell hard. What a relief that I’m already at home. Haha! I’m too lazy to use an umbrella. I did some writing duties before writing this. Wow today I felt accomplished today!

It’s 1 am already. Lol. Late again. Good luck tomorrow.

July 25, 2018, Wednesday

I got a problem. No one was available to be our subject for our next club’s photosession. That was sad. 😥 and I haven’t posted a new blog here. I’m too busy really. I wish I have the time in the world. The good thing about today was the free dinner at Uncle Cheffy’s. It was a send-off dinner to our HR who’s already leaving for greener pasture. As soon as I arrived, the beef steak dinner was served. I was supposed to NOT eat rice during dinner but when I realized, I have eaten everything on my plate. I have also eaten a lot of calamares. It happened so fast. And I was the person telling everyone I was not that hungry. Haha! Well the food is free so…

 

On my way back to dorm, I walk passed a salon. I remembered that i’ve been wanting to cut my hair short because I’m finding it very difficult to shampoo and comb my hair. More than half of my routine every morning is consumed by untangling my super thick and long hair. So I decided to inquire. I thought they would advise me to visit next time because its getting late. I thought its already 9:30pm. To my surprised, it’s only 8:30pm and they agreed to process my hair with Brazilian Blowdry treatment and haircut. All for P1500.00.

I showed them pictures of my peg hairstyle.

Haha! Do you recognize her? If you don’t, this came from a Japanese show in Netflix entitles Kakegurui. It’s about a school of cumpulsive gamblers. I don’t like the show that much but I really like the heroine. She’s so damn pretty with that sleek hair.

I also stressed that I want my bangs to be light. I’m bad in maintaining full bangs. So I like bangs that I can hide when I don’t feel like it. The hair stylist suggested that I should have shower bangs instead. Sounds promising so I said, ok Go!

Here’s the before pics. To be honest, my long hair was looking sleek and shiny tonight. Like wow, why now? When I am about to cut you? Why just look good and manageable now?

For a while I had second thoughts but I still decided to go for it because I want to make my life easier.

And after 2 hours, here’s the result!!

I feel lighter now.What a relief! I can say that I am satisfied with the result.

I gave P200.00 tip to the hairstylist for a job well done.

I wore the same color shirt of all the staffs here in the salon. I belong! I went home and now writing this! It’s already past 1 am. I am hopeless. Haha!

What can I say about today? Well it’s full of food and meetings!

Team Lunch-out at Oppah Chicken!

For our breaktime in the afternoon, one of our officemates treated us for noodles, chicken and pizza.

There are still lot of chicken and pansit left for dinner. I am so full.

One fact about me, I love spicy food. And if the food aint spicy, I got to soaked the food with my special sauce I bought from a food bazaar in our building.

Introducing. Bad Boy Tikboy. INSANE IN THE BRAIN!

I’ll be sleeping at the office for tonight because I have an activity at dawn. You should know by now that I have a bad habit of sleeping late.  So better  sleep here in the office or else I’m screwed.

But before sleeping. Let me share with you a photo of my officemate enjoying my Lolita Jumpskirt.

I felt so sleepy the whole day. I only had 3 hours sleep today for a work-related activity this morning. I went out of work at 5:30pm. But at the same time I was so hungry. One of the greatest conflict of life is to feel hungry and sleepy at the same time. I decided to eat in a not so crowded restaurant on my way home. I brought my camera with me so I decided to take pictures while I wait for my food.

To tell you the truth, I fell asleep while waiting. Maybe 2 minutes long. My camera was on the table. Thank God. If someone with a bad heart, he could stole my camera and run far away I before I could be aware of it. LOL.

Anyway I was satisfied with the food. I’ll reserve other pictures for a separate food blog.

Yes I know, I got a lot of backlogs already. I wish I have the time of the world 😥

After this, I excitedly book a grab ride to my dorm. Write a little for this. Then sleep. I’ll be sleeping at 9:30pm. This is EARLY!!! This is Happening at last!

 

 

#FOTD: Stoned Baked Rice, Pizza on a Rice

Food of the Day: Stoned-Baked Rice
Restaurant:Gottis,SM Megamall Branch
Cuisine:Italian

Isa ito sa mga kinaadikan ko ngayon. Hindi ko malimutan simula ng matikman ko. Para siyang pizza toppings na nilagay sa ibabaw ng mainit na rice. Resulta? Mainit at malambot na cheese na naghalo sa spices. May limang flavors ang Stone-Baked Rice. Pinakapaborito ko ang Gambino Gamberi.

Quoting directly “succulent shrimps sauteed in garlic, pepperoncino and sweet peppers”. Katulad ng pizza, binubudburan ko rin ito ng Chili Powder. P140-P160 lang presyo ng Stoned-Baked Rice.

Sobrang sulit na sa sarap niyan. At isa pa, hindi mo na kailangang pumila dahil walang masyadong tao sa Gottis. Sa unang tingin, mukha kasing mamahalin ang resto. Nakakarelaks. Subukan niyo na nang mahusgahan niyo rin!

VERDICT: ★★★★♡♡♡♡

Now for the photography part of this blog, my mentor told me that the photos are too warm. Good food photography should expose the true color of the food. For some reason, I love warm colors in all things and I thought that the lighting makes a good impression for the photo. But hey this it is my first time. I will take note of this next time.
