Laziest outfit ever: over sized sweater from Archive Clothing, white Mary Janes from Muji, bag from Zara, heart ring from Ring Apartment

Ollo (vague Megamind reference for you there)! Since Gela is currently in an epic battle with Me & My Katamari on the PSP, today's post will be written by me, Gela's loving boyfriend, trusty photographer, and number one fan, Convi (see above photo of strapping young fellow overly excited by the sight of a white Christmas tree)!

I planned to surprise her last Saturday by treating her to an early monthsary lunch date at this new restaurant I heard of on the radio -- The Real Thing Diner over at Il Terrazzo in Tomas Morato. I think it's the first Coca-Cola themed restaurant in the country, and the dishes include Coca-Cola products as ingredients! The store displays all sorts of trinkets and merchandise, a lot of them featuring those lovable, fluffy polar bears and their bizarre (and probably unhealthy) fondness for Coke.

The rest of the afternoon was spent window shopping for wax seals at Eastwood Mall, where we ended up in CCA Kitchen for dinner, due in large part to the "splurge on salad" that comes with every entree. For clarification: unlike Gela, I am actually capable of consuming uncooked vegetative matter, especially when combined with loads of their delectable Asian dressing, plus croutons and fried wanton chips stolen from the soup bar.

After eating, we went back to her place to continue our lives as the world's most boring couple, mostly watching downloads of 30 Rock (ME WANT FOOD!).

The Real Thing Diner

A placemat! The whole restaurant coincidentally matched Gela's outfit.

Also, look: CHOOKIES!

Strawberry Milkshake

Spicy Sarsi Wings

Sarsi Fish N' Chips

Ginger Sprite Tiger Prawns LITTLE SHRIMP THINGIES

CCA Kitchen

Cheese Sticks

Fettuccine Alfredo with Grilled Prawns (note: this is what real REAL prawns look like)

Le Cordon Bleu Chicken

Surprisingly, both meals cost roughly the same amount. Now which one would you rather spend on?

P.S. We also tried fried chicken and waffles the other day at Pancake House, which I throughly enjoyed, but that's another story/argument.

P.P.S. Hey guys, this is Gela. Sorry you had to go through that possibly painful experience, hahaha. I was busy playing my game and eating peanuts, so I told Convi he could write my post. I DIDN'T THINK HE WOULD TAKE IT SO SERIOUSLY. (Like that time he hijacked my Looklet.) Disclaimer: I had nothing to do with the stupid title. Also, CHOOKIES!

  4. HAHA HI CONVI. What an appropriate title given that you've posted more food pictures here than you have in all your other entries combined, methinks. :)) DID THE SARSI WINGS & FISH & CHIPS TASTE LIKE SARSI?

    You know, Gela, I think Convi's dressing a lot better these days. Influence? :>

  5. Aw, this was a pleasant surprise :) I just love that he says he is your number one fan! And his outfit is pretty great too. Very slick!
