Sunday Summary of Food Reviews and Spring Cleaning Blogs.

I’ve hope to make a mark on a good comeback. This week, I have unlocked a new achievement as I have posted 5 times, more than I have ever did (in a week) since I started this blog. And for me, that’s a BIG step towards my goal of “writing myself out there.”

Last Monday, I began my comeback with a review of the pizza chain, Project Pie, and its innovative way of serving customers something new and different with every order. Check it out to find out how!

Mine <3. I came prepared and had all the toppings I wanted. But I was kind of shy to ask for more because the long line is a pressure to bear with. You have to say everything fast and concise when you have about 20 more people behind you, waiting in line.

2 days later, I reviewed Ajisen Ramen, my first take into the domain of the ramen-addicts, and it turned out really gooood. I wonder if this sudden urge of mine to try as many ramen houses is good for my health?

Chashu ramen P305. Basically the same thing with the Ajisen Ramen.

Next was FINALLY getting rid of my old theme and theme headers. Not only that, I also edited my About Me page, my side bars, my footers, and my customized menu! I must say, a heavy burden was lifted off my shoulders when I did the “spring cleaning” of my blog. “Write Yourself Out There” was born properly, this time. To those who are bewildered by my title, this post will explain why I’ve chosen this particular set of words.

Can you believe this was an accidental shot?!

Then my hankering for steaks wormed it’s way into my blog. I just had to make another review of yet another good restaurant. Everything at Steak was a favorite to-go place for…everyone I know actually. So I don’t regret writing many good words about this one 🙂

Not even 24 hours later, I’ve created another post (yes, my hands are really itching to keep typing) to introduce the weekly and monthly features I’ve set up for this blog! I am really excited about this, and so I hope good things would come through this features 🙂

Creating New Features Weekly and Monthly

After staying up all night and finally getting some sleep this morning, I decided to create weekly and monthly features! I figured I needed a hook to commit myself to continuously produce content – even good content. So after listing down all my possible future blog posts ideas (that was a mouthful), I sorted them out to categories. Turns out, I have more possible content on food and personal posts!

So from now on, weekly features will have:

  • Thursday Secret – this will be about confessions, views on life and you know, the usual “secrets” one always have. 😉
  • Food Fridays – will look exactly like the reviews on the restaurants I have posted before. I’ve been trying out a lot of good places lately and I can’t wait to share it with you weekly!
  • Sunday Summary – will be about my weekly summaries. So to give my posts a longer shelf-life, I’ll blog about my after thoughts on my past entries and give short descriptions about them.

On the monthly features section, I wanted to tie myself to a huge responsibility I have been dodging around for years. Truth is, I have a long-term unfinished fiction novel. I’ve been meaning to work on it again, but never had the full commitment of even writing one chapter. So to do myself a favor, I’ll post a chapter here every month. And to further help me, I’m also going to read and review one book each month.

Monthly features will be:

  • Third Tuesday Tales –  The story is about a girl who couldn’t choose between twins that were separated at birth. (cliché, I know. But give it a chance!)
  • Second Saturday Book Reviews – I used to read about 3 books a week, it has now dwindled to one book a month, and even that’s a challenge. But I promise to keep this promise!

I’m also thinking about having a monthly Q&A with my readers and the community I’m hoping to be a part of. But do you think that’s already taking on too much? Or is it too early in the game to have a Q&A?

What are your weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, annual features? 🙂

P.S. Got the idea from The Daily Post 🙂 Love their  Blogging 101: Zero to Hero, will try to make posts based on them soon!

Had a lovely day ❤

1st dayAccording to plan, today is the start of my birthday week celebration. Of course, I’m going to spend it with my boyfriend.

I actually haven’t seen Renz for quite sometime because of our busy schedules. I definitely missed him during this time apart, so I’m really grateful we had this day to ourselves. I’ve never told Renz this before, but he’s my constant drug. Without him, I have a feeling that my scales – my balance – in life would flip. I can handle a lot of things on my own. Heck, I even choose not talk to him whenever I have huge exams to take on or my priorities are piling up. But just knowing that after all those hardships, there is someone who I can lean on, someone who will always be okay with that and who will always understand me, makes me feel all is right with the world.

Today was just another of our typical dates. It was short and we spend our time together pigging out and telling each other our past week. But it was the right kind of Renz vitamin I needed. I have this deprivation that was quenched and I knew my birthday week started out great. ( I hope all couples feel something like this from time to time, and I’m not the only weird one here 🙂 ).

Everything at Steak Menu

So as usual, we went to our favorite places. This is a very special week so I dropped my diet routine and tried to hit the food places I would normally pry myself away from. Yes, this is the week I’m going to indulge myself with food. 🙂

Our first stop was Everything at Steak, as I promised before, I’m going to review the restaurant in my next upcoming posts. I took all the necessary pictures and soon, after you’ve read it, you’re going to enjoy it as much as we always do.

Our next stop was Gong Cha Tea House. Ohmygod. This place has best wintermelon rock salt and cheese milk tea I have ever tasted. We frequent this place in their Retiro branch. What I love about the milk tea is the premium Rock Salk and Cheese on top of the Wintermelon Tea. You can really taste the money you’re paying for and the creaminess of the milk and cheese, of course. (P95) Their house special is primed for its delicious goodness. So whenever you’re near a Gong Cha branch, NEVER forget to order their House Special Wintermelon Rock Salt and Cheese Tea!

Now this is what I'm talking about. Make sure to get that premium rock salt and cheese on top!

For the rest of the day, we also went to Dezaato Pan to have some of their famous Green Tea gelato ice cream and lattes. Unfortunately, I left my phone in the car and forgot to take pictures. Sue me for having too much fun with Renz and being on a clear cloud 9 for once :). Anyway, we had this song on replay the whole time. It became a theme song and one of our favorites.

I would never change him and I love him just the way he is. ❤

UPDATE: Here’s my review on Everything at Steak!

I need someone..

Who knows me from deep within, who knows all my crooks and holes, my hobbies and phobias, likes and dislikes. All the special things only I do. All the small passwords in my mind. All my perfect fantasies. All the little, tiny things about me I’m not even aware of.

Someone who strives to make my wishes come true. Who cares and worries about me. Who leads me to good ways and at the same time follows my preferences. Someone who reassures me of love everyday, never makes me doubt or hurt me intentionally.

For he would be my prince charming. my other half. my soulmate. and I would love him forever and ever… I will never let him go. Never think about being with someone else. Never stop wishing to be with him everyday. And then I would know, only God could have paired us. Only God would have made us perfect for each other.
