My boyfriend and I take food very seriously, and always plan our dates accordingly. If not properly fed, one or both of us will get cranky. I wanted to try something new for our 20th month, so he took me to Cibo the other day for dinner. The chain restaurant has been running for 12 years now, and I've never been there before, can you believe it. He's told me to eat there like a hundred times in the past, but I've always been meh about it. I was naive.

Why, why did it take me so freaking long to eat in this place?? Everything was so good. What we ordered: spinaci zola, rigatoni all'alfonso, salame milano, and costolette d'agnello (not pictured). Guuuuuuuuh. I'm dying just thinking about that shrimp pasta.

I want to try their panini next time. I think I'm going to ask my parents to eat there one Sunday... or every Sunday!!!

Subic w/ college friends


I was in a really foul mood last week. Thankfully, I still had the energy to push through with the weekend getaway with some of my college friends (BF also tagged along). We had been desperate for a beach trip, and ended up in Subic because of time and budget constraints. Subic doesn't have the best beaches, unfortunately, but everywhere else was fully booked for the weekend, so we settled for one of the mediocre beaches with disgusting restrooms and crowded huts and expensive ice cream. At least everything turned out okay in pictures.

Still, thanks to good company, I had fun. I haven't seen them in more than half a year, so it was nice to catch up and hear about what they've been up to since graduation. Hopefully, by next year, we'd have saved up more money to spend on better beaches. Maybe get to travel out of the country together? Or at least outside of Luzon.
