The Unplanned Visit To Hai Chix & Steaks

In our pursuit for another ramen experience, we happened to come across this place. 

It was a rainy Friday. We left the office as early as 1130AM. Unfortunately, two of the places we’ve visited were already full of people who, like us, wanted to fill our tummy with hot bowl of noodles. I didn’t have much patience to wait that time. As we won’t mind to check this new place, just beside this ramen place, we headed our way inside and secure our seats. We didn’t have any ideas if it was a good decision. Taste? Price? Service? We really didn’t know.

How did it go? Well, it was worth the risk to go unplanned. This hainanese chicken and steak place had something to sell. They really have great tasting foods. We loved everything we had in our table. We’re glad we never stuck to our original plan. 

Just In Case I Forgot About Things Vol. 19: Katsu

emilie-bombita-excerpts-kumikatsu

Kumikatsu’s. These 3 are said to be the best of their flavored tonkatsus. Garlic. Pepper. Cheese. A set costs Php 380.00 with unlimited serving of rice, cabbage and pickled vegetables and miso soup. Of these 3, I would have preferred the original tonkatsu or the peppered flavored, at least.

Just In Case I Forgot About Things Vol. 18: Ramen

This is what my friends in the office like to eat these days, hot bowl of noodles soup. Hence, we’re checking out these ramen places nearby the office.

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka’s Tokusen Toroniku Ramen. Php 495.00. This is Karai-Miso, chili, based ramen. I don’t have much tolerance for spicy foods yet I still ordered one. I’ll only ask to make it little less spicy. At the end, it was cleared up to the bottom. Yum!

Movie Date Vol.30: Finally Found Someone 

July 31, 2017

It’s a fun and kilig movie. Aside, of course,that this is a John Lloyd Cruz movie, you know, great acting and great looks. Ahaha! 

Here are some notes to myself:

  • The best gift you can give to someone is honesty
  • Lungkot, kembot
  • Alam ko kung bakit ka tatanda mag isa. Takot ka magsabi ng totoo
  • Love needs truth to be true (Ang nagmamahal laging nagsasabi ng totoo. Kahit masakit basta totoo)
  • Worst fear is now happening, that is to lose someone I love
  • It’s okay to lose everything to gain what the only thing that matters 
  • Ikaw ang pinakamagandang nangyari sa buhay ko. Ikaw ang katotohanan ko.
  • I don’t want you to be the one that got away, I want you to be the one
  • It’s worth the wait. You are worth the wait.
  • Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, How do you do? 😀

Movie Date Vol.29: Cars 3

July 27, 2017


It’s really true that sometimes the best lessons in life are learned from cartoon movies. Ahaha. Seriously, this movie is supposed to be for the kids but I think, it is more applicable to the young once. It may be too much for the little ones.Cars is not just about racing. It was more of teaching us to believe our own self. ‘Cause sometimes, we tend to doubt what we are really capable of. We easily got distracted to what others say or think about us. We never challenged ourselves, instead, we got discouraged. Yet, despite this, if you really are destined for something, the universe will conspire to make it happen. Opportunity will be opened. Someone will be tapped to lead you, to make you believe, to make you realize, that it is really meant for you. You just need to be confident. There was no greater competition but ourselves. If one thing didn’t work, think of another way. Keep with it. Giving up just won’t help. Believe! We have to fly.

I was taking notes while watching and I was really moved from what I got from it.

From the teaser:
“You can’t turn back the clock, kid. But you can wind it up again.”

The way McQueen motivates itself:
Focus. Speed. I am speed
I am faster than fast. Quicker than quick. I am Lightning!

Being confident:
It was my one shot and I didn’t take it
What was it like for you in your first race?
How do you know you could do it?
I just didn’t think that I couldn’t
No lights, instinct only
I knew I had to get in there

Be an inspiration:
Racing, wasn’t the best part of Hudson’s life, it was you
Hud saw something in you that you didn’t even see it yourself
This might be my last chance to give you your first chance
I want to become a racer because of you

Discouragement turned into encouragement:
You will never be the racer you once were, accept it.
If you’re a racer you know what I’m talking about, but you’re not
You don’t deserve to be here
You’ll never be one of us – Storm
You don’t belong on this track
Lightning Career will be Over within the week

Ways for improvement:
Something unconventional
I can’t go out on the track and do the same old thing, it won’t work.
Trying something new.
You can’t be faster but you can be smarter than him
Sneak thru the window (scene with many cars)
Look for opportunities you never know were there
When the window opens, take it
Let other cars do the work

Means to motivate:
Racing is the reward, not the stuff
He see something in you that you didn’t see
You made me believe it. You gotta believe it, too!
You are a racer, use that
You can use that anger to push thru – Cruz
Don’t fear failure. Be afraid of not having the chance, you have the chance.
You’ve got to decide when you’re done racing.
