Yabu’s Molten Lava Cake

Yabu: House of Katsu has long been in the metro’s food scene. The exquisite taste of their house favorites, the ambiance, and their superb service surely explains why Filipinos fell for the Katsu hype in a jiffy.

One of the downsides of having the best in one dish is that the other parts of the menu are being underestimated. Moral of the story, after the many times I have been in Yabu, gobbling over Katsus and feasting over their unlimited Cabbage, this is the first time I dared to order something different.

Lava Cake 2

| Yabu’s Molten Lava Cake. Not wanting to sound bias here but Yabu can’t seem to give me enough reasons to always want to come back. #ButReally

The gooey and warmly-served Lava Cake is in itself exquisite but serving this with Miso Butterscotch? Bliss. Never have I enjoyed a Lava Cake that filled my taste bud with dimensions. I know that sounds a little tacky but I guess this is me trying to hand over the challenge to you. So, the question is, when are you going to try Yabu’s not-so-hidden gem?

This is not the first time I blurted out a laughter because of these good’ole Filipino jokes. Given the fact that this is out-in-this-world humorous, it’s just one of the millions of proof of how can a Filipino be creative despite all the frustrating worldly fuss going on around.

Ayun lang, natawa kasi talaga ako. Ha-ha! I hope this made you laugh too, reader. 🙂


I want to vent. I want to vent. I want to vent. OK. I need a venti.

Time check: 9:03 PM

Date check: 9/16/12

I want to share it with the whole world. I want to shout all of what’s penetrating in my thoughts right now. I know this is too much to bear that’s why I want it to let go in a much safer way…

Ugh. Who am I even kidding? I can’t even find the brainwave to continue this without letting go of a few tears. Bear with me as I allow my flow of thoughts be, for once, the boss of this crap.

Right now, right at this very moment where I am sitting is somewhere you wouldn’t really want to be in. As I puff off my last contribution to the growing pollution, there is just so much noise and clattering, to the point that I can’t even hear my own thoughts. I miss my friends, and I miss my life when I’m with them. My life has never been productive as it is now, but why does it feel like it’s so, I don’t know… BORING? Does it really have to be this life-less?I come to school just to get a good reason to go home again. I wake up every morning just to get some decent grounds to get back to sleeping again. I feel so motivated to do all my errands just to pull something off on my day-to-day routine. I finish tasks on time and do chores in advanced just to say that I actually did something for a day. Oh c’mon, there must be something behind all these façade.

Cell phone. I just remembered my long-term-companion, Noki. Yeah. I named him Noki. Not just because he’s a Nokia phone but because… oh yeah. I named him that because he’s a Nokia. He’s been under my provisions ever since I was in second year high school. We’ve been through a lot actually. He served as light when I was in darkness, calculated not just my arithmetic but also my expenses, reminded me of birthdays, TV shows, meetings and such without getting tired, late nor impatient about it and there are still lots of things he did without a single complaint. Just last, last Saturday (September 1, 2012) was my first day to attend Teatro Fernandino’s workshop. During the rehearsals, we were assigned to do a scene with a falling panorama with it, and as a good girl with so much obedience, I did. Again. And again. And again. And to my utterly and heartlessly surprise, I forgot that Noki was placed on the back pockets of my pants. Need I say more? He was… ugh. That sight’s just too much to tolerate. Tears already ran down my cheeks without even a millisecond of that spectacle. Oh well, RIP Noki, your service will be forever missed.

Now that you’ve (or should I say “I”?) reminded me of Teatro Fernandino, that’s what’s making me more productive lately. I trailed over my first love! The theatre! Of course, without having formal backgrounds about the dos and don’ts of the theatre, I still consider it as my first love. I have always been a fan of the limelight and that is where I am going to be! I always dreamt of inspiring young ones just like I was inspired by so much talented and graceful theatre actors and actresses. I want to create an impact for the theatre and other fancy things about it. One thing is for certain now, with me having to do all these chase-your-dreams-marathon. I shall pursue my dream. NO MATTER WHAT!

For now, this flow of thoughts will have to end. I’m sleepy. And someone “unintentionally” broke into my house. But this is a sure fun. Well, for me. Ha-ha.



your princess-wanna-B.

Bitch, PLEASE.

The bitchy talks, the jealous stare. Funniest part? YOU THINK I CARE

I still remember how it felt like, to be inferior and invisible, being afraid of locking into your own world, befriending your own confidence because it’s the only thing left and imposing fake toughness because it’s the only choice you have.

I know, it was not cool being alone. But it made me realize that it was way “COOLER” than being a phantom, always trying to hide your abandonment by the moving crowd.

Before moving in to Pampanga, I have brought and prepared a lot of “things” that I thought I will need. These included a lot of courage, attitude and power. And no, they are not the ones you see on TV but these are the ones I have been trained for when I was still a froshie (or I think I have been trained for at some particular sense). It never came to me that diverting my breadth would also affect the way I look at things. I admit, my past life will always be something I am not delighted to share with the whole world but I guess it just made me a whole lot better and I will forever be grateful for that. As shabby as it would sound but it really had an aftermath pertaining to how I positively perceive the world today. It took me a lot of time and a whole lot of sacrifices but I guess they are all worth it. I dropped off the cynical act, the awfully discouraging vents and all those hatred in me and it felt great. Releasing negative vibes like they had not been a part of my way-of-living is something, if I may say… intoxicating.

My point? DROP THE ACT. Take it from me, I have learned it the hard way and believe me, a strong ego only encompasses certain angst and everybody would really love it if you would just STOP AND DROP THE ACT. I wrote this post not to vent, not to spread rumours and develop an antagonistic view of somebody, but I wrote this because I want to change a life. Or at least, somebody’s view of life.

Second point: THINK. Negative thinking? You hate or should I say, TWEET that you hate back-stabbers but look at what you are doing now. Those craps will just ruin your day. I mean, aren’t they already ruined? You’re already pissed even without someone annoying you. You’re already annoyed by your own thoughts. Nobody even asked for your point, though it’s much healthier if you did vent it into something more dynamic (Like the one you did and yes. DYNAMIC. Google it. LOLJK). Besides, it will definitely push through in your aura and that is something nobody wants. I just wish you’re aware with what you’re saying. I have been there and I have done that. I think that should give me the just to compare things more clearly.

Proud to say but I have recovered from being “that f*cking bitch” who everyone hates to “that funny bitch” that everyone knows. Maybe there are just some rough circumstances that you SHOULD REALLY GO THROUGH. It’s not nice while I was on the process but look where it lead me? Not that great, yeah, but at least I’m over that player-hater attitude I had, only years ago.

Should I say more? I guess I will just leave the rest to your imagination and let you do a little thinking for yourself.

I can’t believe I’m pissed

Writing this post is something I just want to invest my time with now. This morning surely got out of hand. I was late, but I didn’t woke up late (blame traffic and people who had to complain without even thinking of something to do), I was extremely pissed over something I’m not usually pissed about, craved for coffee but how perfect my timing is because it’s still ain’t ready and I’m doing this release right now without even having a goal in mind.

Last night, as I was about to go to sleep, I have already prepared things that I’m going to use and do for today’s series of events. I have always been a happy-camper but last night was even happier. I thought too much enchantment would shoo away bad vibes, but I guess it didn’t. Or maybe, it’s still on process. This kind of times rarely comes to someone with a blatant attitude like mine and this rage amazingly amazes me.

Dark, pointed eyebrows, pale cheeks and an extremely loud red lipstick is what I planned to look for this day. I was thinking that maybe it would divert my blustering behavior lately into something more sophisticated. What a perfect match, it rained. Not that I did not expect this or something but to my surprise, I was still surprised. I just love being ironic. I tried to see great sides of it though and I’m still trying to see it through the harshness of the starter.

Through out all those times that I have brought a bright and jolly aura with me, now is just something that is impressing me. I’m pissed, and it’s true. But what is dragging me to be amazed just because I’m pissed today? I’m not even sure whether to consider this day as a “BV day” because I could sense that there is something to be glad about; whether that “something” is me being all this pissed. How peculiar don’t you think?
