Wednesday Lunch Date

Hello there! Yesterday, I had the privilege to go out for a decent lunch with my colleagues since our meeting was moved at a later time. As you guys know, I've been packing my own lunch lately to avoid eating anything that I consider "sinful". So yesterday was not that day due to 3 reasons - 1.) I woke up late and time did not permit me to do so 2.) We're running out of resources and our grocery shopping is still due this Saturday and 3.) I'm not in the mood for some cereals+almond milk+banana nor peanut butter+banana sandwich type of lunch. 

We were supposed to eat at Cravings where they offer a salad buffet and soup for 300php. Pretty cheap if you need to satisfy a starvation. But knowing how fickle-minded girls are, we had a last minute change of plans. We opted to eat at a Thai Restaurant for no apparent reason - well I guess because it's the very first restaurant that caught our eyes upon entering Eastwood mall.  We opted to eat at My Thai Kitchen, just a little restaurant with a couple of customers (probably because it was too early for lunch that time). The place is not so fancy and it's just the right place that would offer you a taste of Thai cuisine just when you needed it. Their cheap price gives justice to a limited menu.

I ordered for Vegetarian Pad Thai and Pal See Sahai since they were the only dish free of any meat.

Nothing's really surprising with Pak See Sahai. It looks simple and taste just that. Stir fried tofu, bell peppers, onions and garlic - nothing special. :(

But I totally enjoyed the Vegetarian Pad Thai! It's delish and now falls under my comfort food list. I even tried saving half of it for dinner and it taste just as good as it had been when it was served to us during lunch time. Yum! :)

 Danzy, a devotee of of Pho Hoa's Pomelo Shrimp Salad, ordered  Yam So Oo (Pomelo Shrimp Salad) and Tod Man Pia (Thai fish cakes). She said she loved the fish cakes but finds the salad a bit odd because of the coconut milk. According to her, she'd still go for the salad in Pho Hoa.

Anne, being the only rice-eater amongst us, chose to have Khau Kluk Gapi. Thai's ever famous bagoong rice with sweet pork, egg and green mangoes. I don't think she enjoyed it as much as we did with our food. I didn't hear her make any good or bad comments so I came up with the conclusion that it wasn't that mind blowing either. I also saw her saving half of her dish for an afternoon snack.

If you'd ask me if I'd go back? I definitely would... just for their Pad Thai probably. :)

Anyway, I'm pretty excited for next week for I'll be enrolling for a Yoga Class with my dear friend.  But of course, the first thing that we did was to look for a class where both our crazy schedules would fit and find a place accessible to work. We actually plan to do it before work and get all pumped up! LOL!

After days for Yoga class hunting, we both agreed to take the Yoga challenge here....

Here's a link to their website:

Aside from the affordable rate they have for walk-ins - 500 PHP, the place is located inside a Class A mall so we're both expecting that the yoga and shower rooms are clean and spacious. Unfortunately I can't find a photo of their rooms so I'm crossing my fingers that they'll all meet my/our expectations. My friend and I agreed to take the 7:30 - 9:00 AM class since our work starts at around 11am. At least we still have 2 hours to fix ourselves and get our ass to work.

But of course, preparations are not complete without some Yoga mat....

This is the cheapest Yoga mat I came across with and it's only for 399 PHP. Got one for myself and one for Bless (my soon to be Yoga companion). Do you still need to ask what color I picked? Harhar. :D

I plan to invest on some good quality ones if I find myself liking it. I just don't want to purchase an expensive mat and and end up not using them. So cheers to a good start and preparation! :) I'm pretty excited and I can't wait to add another physical activity on my list. :)

1.) Running
2.) Hiking
3.) Boxing
4.) Yoga

So I guess that's all for today. 

Oh wait! I almost forgot about the pretty bouquet of flowers I got last Monday for a post-mother's day treat.

Don't they just look PRETTY? :) Giving flowers is not really my hubby's thing so I have to give the guy some credit for this. Thanks hun! I know you're secretly reading my blog. Haha.

I guess that's it for today. Got to sleep now coz' it's pretty late and I need to train for an upcoming run. Updates will be given on my next blogs. See yah! :)
