I Found the Droid I'm Looking For!

Well at least the other half of the great droid duo that was Threepio and Artoo. This is one MASSIVE R2D2 made from Lego bricks! Also a combo of my two loves, Lego and Star Wars.


If you can't fathom its enormousness, allow me to be your visual scale (if the lego display kissing the ceiling still ain't convincing you that is!).

Payday Lunch Series: An Afternoon of Indulgence in Mamou

Office friends and I had this eat-out-in-fancy-restaurants-of-our-choice-every-payday rotation ongoing right now. It's actually good cos we get to have that chance in eating at places you wouldn't catch me eating on my own anyway because they can get really expensive yo.

For Roan's turn we had a lunch at Mamou Too in Rockwell Power Plant. Here's a nugget of history that you should know about Mamou.


I'm ready for my lunch!!

Complimentary breads while waiting for our orders.

Here we go. Our orders started arriving one by one. First, Wawa's Prime Rib. Tender enough :)


Kurobuta Mamou-Katsu. I finally had a taste of Kurobuta! The red rice was something new to us (no, it's not really the same rice we have in Cordillera region) so we all ordered that. Mabigat sya sa tiyan!

Beer Battered Fish with Malt Vinegar. Fish is fish!

But the true star of that day was this: Lorenzo's Truffle Cream. Ay caramba you will not stop saying "ang sarap" I tell you because it really is. The flavors are like fireworks in your mouth. The pasta itself may look so simple yet its taste is very defined.

I thank the gracious waiter who answered to our whims of too many "isa pa" photos. Typical. Haha.

We did something in Mamou which I won't tell in details here. Basta, advance happy Birthday Ten!


Complimentary Red Velvet cupcake from Mamou. So sweet! We loved the personal touch of a Happy Birthday greeting printed on card. By the way, that cupcake was HUGE!


The verdict? We loved Mamou if it isn't obvious yet! I would definitely recommend it to friends and I would love to bring the Cheese here someday so he can also have a taste of the heavenly Lorenzo's Truffle Cream. :)

Jessica Darling and Marcus Flutie Are Home


My Jessica Darling series is finally completed! There's a good story behind this. I started reading Sloppy Firsts in Powerbooks Shang until I finished the whole book. And that did not happen in one sitting. I had to come back often to finish the story. I forgot how long it took me but finish it I did.

I was so in love with the character of Marcus Flutie more than the idea of him falling for Jessica Darling that I naturally started having daydreams with my own version of Marcus Flutie. Lol. Lakas maka-bagets.

I think I only got to read up to the third book and I was already in a denial state at that time because Marcus and Jessica's relationship aren't exactly the same gummy candy sweetness that they were 2 years before. Suffice to say when the fourth book in the series came out and reading from the book leaflet that Jessica and Marcus have broken up (they were already in college) I refused to read The Fourth Comings. Hahaha, and I haven't really read it yet. I thought that was the end of the series but Megan McCafferty played again with our hearts when she announced that there'll be a fifth and LAST book. The catch is it won't be out til after 2 years!

So I made a deal with myself that if Jessica and Marcus ended up being together in book 5 I'll buy all the books.

And after 3 years, here they are, finally complete.

You. Yes. You.
