Home Maintenance Blog - Charcoal to Bust Odor

5 comments

I remember growing up and seeing my Granny frantically put charcoal all over the house. She likes placing them inside a rusty, old mug and put them in every corner known to household. I had no idea what she was doing at that time. I thought they were home for the ants or some form of ancient voodoo. It was crazy, I thought back then.

Fierce Blogs _ Enjoyed his breakfast at Whistlestop, Jupiter Makati

11 comments
Share I have always known that the Whistlestop branch along Jupiter, Makati already closed ages ago. But no! They re-opened!

This morning I was soo hungry to the point of imagining of eating my sofa already. Good thing my "usual hungry" friend, Sukey (like me) IM-ed me.. It was salvation time, I knew!

We decided to meet up and have breakfast. But if it's 7:30 am and you are in Makati area, finding a nice breakfast is as hard as looking for a straight guys in tinseltown Where to eat? Google to our rescue!

***

We decided to go to Whistlestop but not without a bit of sweat looking for their new location. Although they are still along Jupiter, the new location is a bit secluded from the center where the food haven really happens. But nevermind the location, we have bigger problem to conquer - HUNGER!

After 10minutes... Alas! We found it!

Facade of Whistlestop

Look at Sukey's smile! She can now eat!

And here's the food we had this morning.

Beef Salpicao with Garlic Rice - P230.00


Sate Babi (Pork) - P170.00



All Tokwa - P70.00
(My Fave)


Hainanese Chicken Rice


Menu


More than anything in this world, they offer Wi-Fi.



Downside - It is hard to call the attention of the waiters if you prefer to stay outside. I guess they should get one of those push button when guests dining outside need assistance.

By they way, thank you Abbie (the food attendant) for finding time to give back the DVD I left at your resto.

Fierce Blogs Review - Kamayan sa Palaisdaan (Tayabas, Quezon)

6 comments
Share If there is one thing that I look forward to during weekends are those opportunities I get to leave the city. This is of course because of a lot of obvious reasons (I am a city boi!). I don't appreciate much the long drive - but I get a rush from the thought of not seeing the uneducated driving ways of the buses and jeeps that stray along our streets.

Luckily for me, I have friends who share the same passion for "my-butt-is-all- numb" from the long drive but we still want to travel, ANYWHERE! Not mention, "I NEED TO PEE" moment and "I NEED TO GO, NOW". But these are all part of the out of town drama., isn't it? They make up for the sweet moments of discovering places and products you come across along the road you less travel. It makes the friendship bond fiercer!

Every now and then, there are also those moments when you discover a place and you can't help but re-visit them.

***

We have already visited Kamayan sa Palaisdaan 2 year ago on our way to an ugly resort (can't remember the name and I wish never to remember it!) somewhere in Quezon province.Our experience with the restaurant was significant that's why we have always planned to return again. Palaisdaan can be summed up in 3 ways: indigenous gastronomy, tropical backdrop and fierce fierce price (easy on the pocket, that is!) ! I guess it was really the price we all fell in love with (admittedly) and the rest are just secondary (cheapo!).

Here are the usual food we normally order: Mixed vegies, grilled pork, tilapia and another type of fish I don't know the name (LOL). I am not really a big fan of the mermaid menu (fish), sorry. I simply enjoy MEAT (no pun intended)! But my favorite is their manga with bagoong (mango with shrimp paste). I swear I can eat it all day. The bagoong tends to be on the spicier department but is all worth the sweat and kick!

Our usual order


My fave

There are also a lot of spots where you and your family can take photos (this is where we all pinoys connect, dont we?). Check out our photos last week.

On a nega side (downside):

1.Their restrooms are not well maintained. It is a gift to visit their resto if you have colds. Your virus will save you from the ungodly smell inside the restroom.

2. It is currently being expanded. It is best to wait for the finished improvements they are currently doing.

3. Their signs need to be internationally readable (Check picture below). I didn't really see the monkeys until I saw the sign. Although they are caged (poor monkeys), they are still most likely to be missed since they are knee level.

(English translation - Stay Away from the Monkeys)


Other than that, Kamayan sa Palaisdaan in Quezon is a sure treat to families, barkadas and balikbayans.

How to get there? You know the drill. Just google it!

May the fierce be with you!

Playing Farmville makes one Person Gay?

6 comments
Share

This is an elevator scene that happened today.

There are 4 casts:

1. The guy with the bad haircut. Let’s call him Boy Bangs.

2. The pizza face guy. I swear his pimple count could surpass 5 youngsters combined quota! For that I’ll name him Gumburumbu!

3. The guy who has no participation and was so busy playing PS2. Let’s call him Anna Williams.

4. The blogger who bought something to drink at their lobby; now heading up.

5. And the irritating digital voice of the elevator ( “stating the floor”… “door closing” and what have you…)

Let’s start the story.

From the lobby, I was the first to enter the lift while there were 3 other guys who closely followed. They were being kids - noisy, rowdy and freaking UGLY! I try not to mind them but something between their pathetic discussions caught my attention.

Gumburumbu – Pare, sumama ka na kase sa amin mamayang gambi.Wag kang bad trip! (You better join us tonight and don’t be a flaker!)

Boy Bangs – Dehins pwede pare eh. Walang tao sa condo tsaka magfa-farmville pa ‘ko (I really can’t. There is nobody home and I want to play Farmville)

At this point I was intently listening already! It’s “Farmville Talk”! I can relate!

Gumburumbu – Bading ka ba? Pang bading lang yang Farmville na ‘yan, pare! (Are you gay? It’s only for gay people!)

All right, I was not only listening at this point; I WAS ALREADY FURIOUS and I REALLY CAN RELATE NOW! I wanted to pick my floppies and madly slap his cheeks until all his pimple erupts and bleeds! I bet he would have to thank me for doing that favor for him, someday! And what was Anna Williams doing while this was all happening? Busy trying to kill Kazuya Mashima while his character is Anna Williams! Now isn’t that “gayer”!?

Boy Bangs – Basta harvest and plant muna ako tapos sunod ako sa tower 3. (I’ll harvest and plant first and then I’ll join you in tower 3.)

Gumburumbu – Bading ka talaga! (You are really gay!)

The lift open and it was my floor already. There is a gawd after all! Imagine spending 10 more minutes inside the lift with them?! Really painful!

I hurriedly went inside my loft in pursuit of a goal. Say, sort–of-a-mini-investigation to put sanity in Gumburumbu’s claim - “That Farmville is Only for Gay People?” Not that it matter really, rather to give the youngster a venue to defend his claim. And not to mention my being a Farmville addict only validated Gumburumbu’s opinion! Urgh

With so much excitement (mixed with rapt and nosiness), I counted all my straight friends in Farmville. Naturally they exist! What was my official count? There are 14 straight guys (straight at least when I last saw them in flesh) all willing to BANG a girl given the right opportunity!

***

On a serious note, it is really interesting how putting a “label” to people can be passed on the younger generations – considering that there is no formal learning or sit-down-lecture about it. This is really sad… But I believe labeling and mankind goes hand in hand for as long as the latter still exists.

Anyways, it’s FARMVILLE time! Can I just say I can’t wait for my horse sable to be complete? I’m soo excited!

Life is fierce! Forget the labels (on characters only but not on apparels).
