I am quite lucky to live near some friends who I can call and bug to hang out with at perfectly odd times. And they give in to my requests 90% of the time.

Since discovering the wonderfully cheap TOK-YU, it has been my go-to Japanese place whenever I crave for something hot and actually willing to get out of the house instead of my usual instant shin ramyun. Vlad always gets his Beef Sukiyaki (and I always cringe at how sweet it is).

My usual is their Seafood Ramen which I always cannot finish. I appreciate how generous they are with the ingredients. Too generous in fact that I always find CHUNKS of ginger at the bottom of my bowl. Every single time. LOL.

The other two boys ordered Udon and Yakisoba which looked and tasted the same. LOL. Nothing to sing praises about, I do not recommend getting these.

Another ~must order~ for us is their maki/sushi set. It is so fucking cheap you are almost emotionally obliged to like it haha! It is mostly OK but this time around, they fucked up their rice and it came out too soft and mushy. I hope they work on their chef’s consistency.

Nevertheless, I would still go back to Tok-Yu whenever I get the ~cheap Japanese cravings~ because it really is damn cheap. I have yet to find another restaurant that offers Japanese food as cheap as Tok-Yu does.

For desserts and post-dinner drinks, we trooped across the street over to Chatime. Because tea always works and we are oldies who’d rather have a glass of milk tea over beer on a Saturday night. Hashtag LOSER haha! We got whatever pastry they had left except for their cronuts because those are overpriced as fuck. TIP: they offer their pastries at 50% off after 10pm.

The lighting upstairs was so pretty so we camwhored like mad. I almost peed myself laughing like crazy when Gian and I were taking pictures with bits of chocolate muffin stuck in our teeth. We were probably annoying the fuck out of the other people in the room, but whatever. YOLO! Haha!

LOL sorry! A very random post, I know. I didn’t realize I had this sitting in my drafts so might as well post it, right?

OK. Now I feel kinda embarrassed. Kinda… hahaha!

My Week in Photos (WiP) recap is one week late this time. Life happened. And by life, I mean foodtrip sessions with friends. LOL. This week has been filled with food and clingy friends and much more food. I have grown into a big round ball of happiness. LOL

January 8: Today, I booked a flight to ***. I don’t wanna disclose just yet where I’m headed but I am so excited for new adventures this year. I finally got the corporate giveaway given to employees as a thanksgiving token last Christmas and it further fueled my desire for travel. It’s a “universal adapter” with more than 5 different socket types. Pretty nifty! After work, headed to CGS for dinner at our usual spot: Breakfast in Bed (which I have to blog about because I have been there more than 5 times for the past month).

January 9: Used my new scarf which I bought from Ilocos. It comes in a nice shade of pink (bordering tan) which is so NOT ME! LOL. I also missed my supposed New Year dinner with Lorraine and Ren but I was able to have dinner with the Boni Crew. Had delicious and MSG loaded dinner at Mr. Choi that made me very sleepy immediately after eating. Decided to grab tea from Starbucks before heading home to keep me up just for a bit longer because I didn’t wanna sleep with a full tummy and might end up dying. LOL. I don’t even know if there’s a scientific basis for that.

January 10: Payday Friday! 🙂 Had lunch at McDonald’s because we wanted to take advantage of their New Year deal. 2 pcs fried chicken for just Php95, I’ll take that! Hehe. To help get through the afternoon slump, grabbed milktea from Chatime. It is the most effective upper for me.

January 11: Stayed home all day (well ate least while the sun was still up). Met up with the Boni Crew for dinner at Tok-Yu. Tok-yu is golden. If you want ramen and sashimi for cheap, head on over there. For dessert, we crossed over to Chatime. Turned out to be a bad move because I ended up sleeping close to 4am. Their tea is potent, I tell you.

January 12: MAGINHAWA FOODTRIP!!! It was an afternoon full of food. So much food!!! Watch out for my blog posts about the restaurants that we visited. Our first stop was CRAZY KATSU which I wrote about here: click me!

January 13: Worked the 12pm-9pm shift and availed of the company car service for the first time this year. I was only able to take photos while waiting for the car to arrive. While browsing Instagram, I saw photos of the moon everywhere. There was some phenomenon happening and the moon actually looked pretty. Such a shame it didn’t actually show in my photo.

January 14: Today is my mom’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Mama! ♥♥♥ Was not able to celebrate with her ‘coz I’m away from home but I uttered a tiny prayer for her health and wellness. Speaking of health, look at all the junk food in the office hahaha. And I was really amused with the Ma’am Inasal one (a play on the original Mang Inasal). I left work early and got stuck in traffic; at least my cab looked like a party of some sort with all the lights hehe. And the reason I battled traffic was to get myself a good piece of Tbone steak. We also had milktea after dinner. Oh boy, I really am hooked on milkteas.

This week was full of food, hahaha! So much about getting fit this year, eh?
