mini-housewarming + faburrito + potted potter + i might need to sell a kidney to get to thailand

What a weekend! First weekend we spent in the new place where we didn’t have to clean.  (Only because we had to clean on a weekday.)

Friday to early-morning Saturday, met up with my high school girlfriends to have dinner at Greenbelt 5’s Mesa. Really good food, so good we neglected to take pictures. I highly recommend the Crispy Boneless Tilapia with four sauces, and the Crispy Leche Flan. Don’t you already feel the oil boiling in your veins just by reading that?

Continuing the neglect to take photos, I invited them over to see the new place, and got suckered into a summer trip to Vietnam and Thailand. This will require an enormous amount of not spending. So help me.

A lotion straight from Fiji! Thanks Ghia! She had to wash dishes to get me this. Kidding! Or not.

Saturday, I dragged J to have lunch at Faburrito at The Columns. Now I was able to take pictures.

They serve affordable and guilt-free food. We got burrito with steak (for J.) and chicken (for me), corn soup, and mint tea. I found the mint in the mint tea overpowering, but loved the flavor of everything else.

We missed the first run of Potted Potter and were grateful that they came back.

Potted Potter in Manila, a parody that squeezes all seven books into 70 minutes, was performed by Jesse Briton and Gary Trainor. (It was originally a five-minute street show created by Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner in 2005  to entertain the fans lining up for the the 6th book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.) And it was hilarious! Loved the Quidditch Match. It brightened up our Saturday. :)

The venue was small, so the view from our Balcony seats weren’t so bad.

On Sunday, I just stayed home (J went off to a game at his friends’) and watched Gattaca. So good even Andrew Niccol can’t top himself. It’s ideas and emotional impact does not compare to his own S1mone and In Time. I was personally drawn to Jude Law’s character. The need for perfection has its own pressures.

Also: now reading Never Let Me Go. Sci-fi overload, and I love it.

  1. Never Let Me Go! The mere mention of it, well, naiiyak ako haha. I love that book so much that I can’t bring myself to watch the movie version.

    Also, I love Mesa! Will have to try the crispy leche flan next time. Get the sinigang with salmon head. It’s great nom nom nom.
