Far out roadtrip!

We missed the ceremony! We barely managed to make it on time for the reception.

and here's why:

We got lost. hahaha!

Ended up in friggin NASUGBO, BATANGAS!!!

(this is after we drove around in Festival Mall, Alabang Town Center, Splash Island, Taal Volcano Tagaytay! and a wonderful lunch at Josephine's)

So let's see, we covered Las Pinas, Alabang, Tagaytay and Batangas. Too bad the wedding was held in Cavite >_< (yes we went around the friggin place)

We just kept on driving straight down the road, took us about 40 mins before realizing that we were lost. >_<

Along the way we picked up some Buko Pie, Cashews, Peanuts, Apple flavored Lambanog, and some NY fries. lol!

We dragged our sore and tired butts home at around 7pm (coastal road--I wanted to make a side trip to baywalk or malate but I was voted down)

That was fun hehe. (a very fun way to celebrate 6 months with Tin ^^)

Maybe we can schedule another one in October ^_^

Road trip!!

Jasmine (mutual friend namin ni Tin)is getting married this saturday (sept 25)-- which also happens to be Me and Tin's 6th monthsary thingy ^_^

The wedding takes place in Cavite so it's our very first out of town road trip!
Normally it's hard to plan a road trip since neither one of us knows how to drive (actually I do but I don't have a license yet =P) but we've managed to procure the driving services of Dong and Carding (for free! mwehehe)

Ceremony starts at 2pm so we have the entire morning to wander around the southern lands hehe.

Maybe we can sneak in a trip to Festival Mall, Alabang Town Center, Tagaytay (mushroom burger, sonia's garden etc) and other exotic locales in the southern provinces.

Dong is offended that I call Las Pinas, Alabang etc as provinces (heck anything beyond Magallanes is a province for me na) but _anything_ with a friggin toll booth constitutes as povincial to me =P

This promises to be a fun trip! (similar to the glee I've experienced when it was time for our class field trips back in highschool)

I'm so excited and can't wait for saturday! ^_^

(might also be a good time to take down notes for future events hehe)

Yum! (all i can say)

I want more.

Talk about comics...

Bendis is god. No really. He is.

I used to say that about Neil Gaiman (Sandman writer, among others) and Alan Moore (Writer of way too many kick ass comics) but I think it's time to expand the pantheon just a little bit. ^^

Brian Micheal Bendis currently writes way too many titles (Ultimate Spiderman, Daredevil, The Pulse, Avengers, Powers etc) and I'm really amazed at his gift for dialogue--which is his main strength. It all flows smoothly, casual and easygoing.

He's done several life altering things in Daredevil already that I'm starting to wonder when he'll run out of ideas! (He's revealed Daredevil's secret identity to the tabloids, blinded the kingpin, introduced a wife for Matt Murdoch, created a new designer drug made from Mutant Growth Hormone, really messed up the status quo and now Daredevil's taken over new york as the new Kingpin!)

Now he's planning to change the Avengers by killing off a long time member, disbanding the team and starting a new core team of Avengers with Spiderman and Wolverine in it! (Spiderman has never been a team player and Wolverine really doesn't work well with Captain America)

His ideas are radical and I'm really in awe. Shet.

ok fanboy mode off.

I'd like to take the time out to say I love you to my Dad. I think I never got to say this to him personally. So i'm saying it now. I miss you.

Upcoming games:

I'm actually interested in the new Magic set, Champions of Kamigawa. ^^

It uses a japanese like setting (samurai, spirit demons etc) and that always appeals to me.

Why go back to Magic? (the card game that started all card games)

Because I rarely get to play VTES anymore --Vampire games are a bit sluggish around the store nowadays.

There's also Magic Online to consider. (Can't find anybody to play with? There's always a game waiting online!)

And then there's the samurai factor. That's always cool ^_^

Whatever happened to Marvel and DC VS?

I like the game, I love the cards, but again, hardly anyone plays it in the store.
(The game is active but I don't like traveling to a mall just to play it)

--what else?

oh yeah, I got a haircut from Bruno's barbers in Greenhills (ask for Rico his dayoff is tues)

I'm just blogging that here to remind me next time I get a haricut hehe--I actually thought his name was Raul lol

Mmmm....Mushroom burgers....

I am now a fan.

And yes this is my first time. And it was glorious. I love it.

I like the fact that it's one jeep ride away from me mwahahaha! We have indeed found our whitecastle burgers. The mushroom sandwich with cheese is just the right size, you can actually eat 2 of them in one sitting ^_^

I love sharing new food discoveries with Tin. (technically she's had them before but it's been years--)

Tin and Johann go to Mushroom Burger!

Just bought a dvd copy of Harold and Kumar go the Whitecastle and after watching it, we immediately experienced a craving for burgers. lol! Went straight to Wendy's right after the movie haha. Apparently there's a branch of Mushroom burger near my place and since I've never tried it (*gasp!*) we'll give it a shot maybe on Saturday ^_^

Whitecastle burgers are very yummy (I saw it on unwarapped--the lifestyle network show on pop culture foods) they're very small, cooked with onions, lots of them so they're really savory and juicy. A person can usually eat around 2-4 burgers due to the small size.

The best thing that comes close to this is Wendy's. (I'm a McDo fan but the burgers at McDo aren't as great as Wendy's) In terms of pure toppings like lettuce, tomatoes, onions etc you can't beat Wendy's. (fast food comparison only of course) I don't even see enough toppings on a regular McDo burger! You just get a patty and some sad sauce/ketchup thing on the bun =P

Tin's been raving about Mushroom burgers for quite a while now so it's time for the taste test! ^_^

And yes regarding Harold and Kumar go to Whitecastle: They had a sudden craving for Whitecastle burgers (foodtrip!) and it took them the entire movie just to get to their goal (Neil Patrick Harris, Dougie Howser stole their car among other mishaps lol) ^_^

Hopefully the worse that can happen to me and Tin is the traffic lol.
