Just exactly when I heard one of the famous food parks in Marikina is about to bid farewell, Lamp Quarters emerged. I’m not really a fan of this kind of setup because of some lame reasons, but that doesn’t really stop me from being me, and ‘being me’ means on the look out for anything that makes ME and my tummy happy. However, I thought I had already forsaken food after getting my dental braces. Little did I know, I am a tenacious human being who can’t be easily pulled apart from eating whatever pleases my appetite. LOL. 😀
When I drive, I make sure that I pay attention on the road not just for the sole reason of defensive driving but to spot newly opened restaurants or cafes that are new to me. I’m on a continuous pursuit of happiness and trying out different food places is definitely one of my life’s greatest pleasures. I worked for almost 4 years in Boni, Mandaluyong and driving around Pioneer made me discover a few nearby cafes/restaurants that are worth the visit. Some of them are Mozaic Living, Joey Pepperoni, The Giving Cafe, etc. Tasty Tucker, being one of the few, already caught my attention few years back, but I never had the chance to actually pay a visit and it’s probably because of the not-so-inviting facade of the cafe. So when Zomato invited me over, it immediately rang a bell and since I was free that time, I said YES!
Fat Daddy’s Smokehouse is the perfect venue to test your appetite for meat. For some, it can really be overwhelming but if you are a natural foodie, then it’s just going to be one of those days where you will probably overly indulge and then have a cup of hot tea afterwards.
While a lot of countries all over the world are planning and maybe still adapting with technology, Japan just had it all figured out. They are way ahead and they are the exact definition of the “FUTURE.” I maybe exaggerating but, I was there, I saw it, I experienced it firsthand. It amazes me to think what else in this world of technology could they be cooking up, Artificial Intelligence perhaps? But seriously, who knows what’s next?
Christmas is just around the corner and are we really ready to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year? Christmas season is probably one of those occasions that bring so much stress. Imagine buying and choosing countless gifts and then wrapping it all up, putting the decors all over the place making sure we’re in character with the season, and even preparing the food to serve for Noche Buena. But despite what has just been said, this is also the time where most of us, if not all, choose to make these sacrifices because it’s simply ‘CHRISTMAS.’ No more, no less.
