last friday, we went to manila to visit my little bro, mike(who isnt that little anymore..maybe a bit short.. but he is a big boy already. lol :D). we also dropped ate myrene and my pamangkins off at the jac liner bus terminal.. they'll be spending a few weeks in marinduque. im thinking of following them and spending a few days there. still thinkin bout it..
---current thought--- oil price hike!!
gas stations do what they do best.. mabilis pa sa kidlat (trans:faster than lightning) when it comes to raising their prices. gas prices increased again for the nth time!! price today is 51.92! waah..!
no more money for gas.. rumors say that gas prices may even reach as high as P100/liter! OMG?! if this continues, people will stop goin out and travelling will really be a luxury just for the rich... and not just that.. as oil prices go up, so as the prices of other commodities. maybe ill get a bike or a scooter.. :D we have to save energy.. but how??

during these stressful times, it is important that we find places offering good food and services to pamper our body and soul, and yet still are pocket and wallet-friendly.. :D

one saturday, i showed philos' site to my mom and showed her this thewi thai massage place.. my mom loves massages. the blind masseurs along shoppesville, the massage chairs, machines, massaging belt and home service massage, she had tried them all. :D and so i shared this place ive read about.

Grilled Tomato
we were too early for thewi so we decided to have lunch first at Grilled Tomato-Banawe ave. a classmate's bf is a part-owner of this resto so class gatherings and dinners are frequently heldhere. they serve mediterranean-middle eastern cuisine-particularly keema, kebab and gyros.

their new store at ma. clara cor banawe ave

very affordable and tasty meals

roti bread with curry sauce (must try!)

special milk tea

ox brain-kakasa ka ba? hehe

beef kebab meal-served with curry rice and iced tea
my mom said it tasted like longanisa(filipino sausage)

beef keema with curry rice
i suggest you try their milkfish masala and nutti roti. :D

Thewi Thai Massage

thewi thai massage is located at d. tuazon ave cor ma. clara, just across st. theresa's college.
as we entered their reception area, we noticed the smell of peppermint.. really aromatic.

they offer different types of massage. as you can see, prices are very affordable. the staff here are very nice and friendly. i noticed that most of their customers are chinese. why? i dunno?

as you wait in the reception area, they bring you this basin with lukewarm water, soap and moisturizers. they wash your feet in front of everybody and gives you a pair of these numbered slippers..

see? nice noh? i hope they are clean.. hehe..

after getting your feet cleaned up, they'll lead you upstairs to these nice cubicles with comfy mattresses. you'll be asked to change in pajamas they provided.

it was a very relaxing experience. my mom told me that she fell asleep because she really felt good. the massage will really stretch every muscle fiber and loosen up your tight joints. unlike the other massage wherein you'll feel beaten up right after like tenderized meat, thai massage is rejuvenating, relaxing without the tired feeling right after. thai massage focuses more on stretching the muscles, therefore, improving our circulation. really good value! i highly recommend it! :D

    Yup, greek siya. Masarap siya dahil sa sauce. Pero parang normal lang na bbq siya sakin kung walang sauce lol. Hmm..yung teammate ko na nasa Australia nagpaplano umuwi on December. Soo, hopefully makakauwi rin ako. Food trip tayo woot!

    i just got my thai massage in thewi. the over all massage was superb! kaso lang nung pauwi na ako,na-stress ako. i gave a tip to my masahista (i forgot the name, unfortunately i only got a few coins for the tip (30 pesos)..Aba! at nagdabog ba nman ang masahista ko...(teka, obliged ba ako mag-tip sa inyo kung wala kyong bedside manners,like yawning (na maingay ha) while doing a head massage.. sana man lang dinadahan dahan nyo ang pag hawak at pag lift ng mga paa/legs namen. i think the management shall reprimand this masahista of mine. or better yet kausapin nya mga empleyado nya.. wag nman garapal sa paghingi ng tip. ni hindi nga sya nagthank you for the tip (buti nga inabutan ko pa sya)...
