Lunch at Bubble Tea

Woke up at 6:15 am. Fixed my things for school, ate a light breakfast, took a shower, 
put on some clothes, and I'm ready to go. But I wasn't going to school yet. 
Me and and my parents went to my tito's house in San Juan to pick up something
and we also went to Mandaluyong to pick up something. HAHA. After that, we went to 
SM Megamall to eat lunch. My mom was craving for Bubble Tea that morning.
We were supposed to eat at Burgoo in Greenhills but mom really wanted to 
eat in Bubble Tea. So we went to Megamall and ate here! :>
And it was my first time to eat there. :D
(Photos taken by me! :D)

Mommy's Japanese Green milk tea.
She really likes this. Me and my dad are not really fans of 
green teas so we didn't liked it. HAHA

My lemon black tea~ :D It's their version of iced tea. Tastes good. :D
It has a lot of tapioca pearls or sago in it. You can add more bubbles and pearls
to any of the drinks in Bubble Tea. But I'm not really sure how much. I forgot the price. :P 

Dad ordered Tofu Steak. It's a lightly breaded soft tofu cooked
in sweet soy sauce and mixed veggies. It's really delicious and the tofu 
is really soft. It costs P165 and it's worth the price! 
The tofus are a bit big and it's good for 2-3 people.

My Samurai Chicken! Crispy chicken coated with special
samurai sauce. I have no idea what's samurai sauce. But it tastes 
really gooooooood. It's a bit salty though. But overall it's okay.

Their Japanese plain rice. Costs around P45 pesos.
Can't exactly tell what's the difference of this and the regular rice we eat.
But it's tastes okay. :)

Mom ordered Tonkatsu Curry. It's a Japanese style sweet and mild spicy
curry sauce topped on breaded pork cutlet with rice and egg. 
A very satisfying meal for only P195! ;)
I loved it when my mom gave me a spoonful of this. It's really clever
how they incorporated their Japanese touch into this Indian delicacy. 

We ordered this because we got curious when we saw it on the menu. Mom knows this because 
before she worked in Japan as a choreographer and dancer so she knew
Japan's culture and cuisine. This is an okonomiyaki, a Japanese omelet and it is one 
of my mom's favorite dishes. But here in Bubble Tea, it is a pizza style dish! Cool right?
It is a batter wrapped around meat and veggies, topped with mayonnaise. 

This is served with 2 side dishes of veggie salads. :) It costs around P215. Very delicious!

Bubble Tea ~~~ ( ゚▽゚)

One happy and satisfied customer! ♥
Will go back to Bubble Tea soon to try other stuff in their menu!

Kussen, Nico ☺

CONQUER 11.5.10

My friends and I decided to go to CONQUER. A party held in The Fort at the Mini Global City showroom.
The tickets costs around 250Php and it's inclusive with unlimited shots of cocktails and beer.
It's so funny because I'm we were first ones to register that night. I was number 1 in the list! HAHA
My friends were like, "OMG, early birds. Ewwww". They're so maarte talaga. 
Haha, anyway, the party was fun. At first I didn't get to dance that much because my bag 
was so heavy 'cause I was from UP when we went to Conquer. I brought my book and my
lunch and water tumbler so my bag's pretty heavy :P 


The DJ!

Apparently, she was the friend of my friend and batch mate in UP-CFA,
Bern Cruz. It was surprising when Bern called me while I was dancing! Haha.
And thanks to Bern I had a place to leave my bag! YAY. 
Left it beside the dj's table. 

Picture with the DJ! If I'm not mistaken, i know her name is Marga.
I couldn't really understand what she was saying when I asked her name.
The music was very loud and the people were screaming.

Saw my cousin Kevin there. His dad didn't allow him to come to Conquer
but all thanks to me, his parents changed their minds. His mom, my tita
called me and asked if I was going too. So because of me going, he was allowed too.

Show stopper. A guy break dancing in front of the crowd.

A girl who caught my attention because of the studs on her top.
I love her outfit. :) Her name's Sam Espinosa.

Cute bartenders giving us shots of cocktails! 

One of the cute bartenders roaming around with shots of cocktails. 

These girls were dancing the night away and took a picture 
of them for being cute and wild! 

Who wouldn't be happy with these two hotties serving beer for the night?

Nikki, Ia, me, Leigh, and Kim. Thanks Chella for taking this picture! 
We're sweating like pigs, but still we manage to take a good photo. Teehee :)

Unlimited shots of cocktails. I didn't drink much because it's just been 
4 days since I got out of the hospital. :p

A picture with my friends' schoolmate from CCA and the photographer
of the event, Thirdy Dolatre.

Outside the showroom and upclose with the mini coopers outside.
It was really hot inside because of the sweat of the people and it caused the 
glass windows to moist. Even my camera was a victim of the heat!
It wouldn't focus because the lens was moistening too.

A break in 7-eleven near the showroom of Mini Global City.
Chella and a girl that blew me away with her shiny blue dress. I asked her
If could take a picture and she said yes, obviously. Hahaha.

Fierce beckies. Saw them walking to Encore and I didn't hesitate to take
a picture of them. At first it was embarrassing to ask total strangers to ask if I 
could take pictures of them but after a few yeses from people, I got the hang of it.

Met this sweet girl from the parking lot. She borrowed something from me and in 
exchange I took a photo of her. I love her outfit especially
the metallic print on her top and her pink skirt.


Went to Eastwood around 12:30 because it's really hot inside the showroom to 
the extent that it's hard to breathe. HAHA Arte much?
Ate at Persian Kebab and stayed at the condo lobby of the lolo of Ia
and Chella in Eastwood Excelsior.
SUPER FUN! Will party soon! <3

Navy Blues

We decided to wear navy blue jackets. I wore a military jacket from Zara; a dress that I turned into a top, bought at Greenhills for just around 120php; denim shorts; and my favorite silver NJ sneaks from BACKSTAGE. My bag is a Tommy Hilfiger one that my mum passed on to me because it's so used and abused.haha But i still love it.
Nico wore a classic blazer, a Rocha John Rocha brown printed shirt, denim shorts, and navy blue Vans. His bag was an awesome find at SM Hypermart. It's really cheap compared to most bags. There was this similar bag at EGG, but a bit pricey... It was really nice, but since Nico was looking for a bag for school (and therefore there's a huge possibility that paint might get on it haha), he chose the cheaper one.

More pictures taken in FA. We hung out there while waiting for the office lunch break to finish.

Pictures of us having lunch at the FA parking lot. 
So that was Day 2 of our enrollment! Stay tuned for pictures from Nico taken at CONQUER.:)
