I'd recommend it, except for that thing it does on your ass.

Last night, I had dinner with my officemates Becca, Joseph, Mia (who came all the way to Makati from the Ortigas office) and Mike to celebrate one of our company's attempts to stop us from moving to another job (in other companies, of course.) (Jan was also supposed to be with us but she was not feeling well as had to go home early. Boo!)

Mia and I decided that we were eating at Bubba Gump in nearby Greenbelt since we were hungry and that place doesn't disappoint with serving sizes. However, one of us (who I will hide under the name Poseph) was still stuck in a meeting, so... this meant we had to wait for him. And we did. For the next two hours or so.

Then when we were finally ready to leave, Poseph suggested that we dump the Bubba Gump idea and head to Serendra so we could dine at one of the restaurants there. We agreed with him (despite historical facts that if only we remembered then would have reminded us that we should never entertain Poseph's suggestions regarding places to eat. *cough*Tony Roma's*cough*) and headed to Serendra. When we got there, the first question that popped into our heads was "Where do we eat?", a question that never seems to get an answer within 15 minutes of its question mark.

The first restaurant we went to was Polu Kai, but they were at that time only serving appetizers and desserts (we waited two hours remember?) Then after that, we headed to Brazil! Brazil!, because they were serving buffet, but by that time, the food on the near empty trays didn't look too appetizing. So we headed to Mezza Luna, but they were already closed. So we settled for Portico, which was a nice enough place. The food was pretty good so I'm not gonna complain there. I ordered Grilled Gindara with balsamic vinegar and some other stuff as the sauce, and it tasted really good. The fish was melt-in-your-mouth soft and the sauce tasted great. I'd recommend it except it has a weird after effect. On your ass. (Let's just say I'm glad I stayed home today.)

After dinner, we headed to Cupcakes by Sonja to eat some... cupcakes... by Sonja. The cupcakes are really overpriced and the place is really popular now in the sort of way that rich teenagers wearing booty shorts flock to them (on a *gasp* school night!), so that should only mean that the cupcakes are great, right? Anyway, Poseph paid for the the cupcakes so that made those wittle things taste better. =P

Such a mystery who this Poseph is.
And i deserve no Booos, i went back to the office to have my wstation unlocked (despite the throbbing headache), it was a premonition of my laptop's hardware failure.

Hmm, so you recommend Portico, just not your order? tama ba> hahaha!

Nagcrash laptop mo jan? wahaha :)))

:p

I actually recommend the Gindara, just as long as you're willing to take the consequence it gives your digestive system the next day.

I don't get it. So who's Poseph???

Hahahaha.

I like this one: "one of our company's attempts to stop us from moving to another job (in other companies, of course.)" :) So did the attempt succeed in your case?

Alvin, let's keep the side effects a secret. Btw, I am starting to feel much better since Saturday afternoon! Good for me... hehehehe...

Honestly though, I would have settled for Brazil! Brazil! that time.

the cupcakes at sonja's are all right. i don't understand what the big deal is about them though. i mean, they're just cupcakes; they don't exactly retard aging or contain gayuma or something (not that we know of...). hehe. i'm blabbering. i wouldn't say no to a free cupcake though. =)

thanks for the portico tip. i hear abe doesn't exactly impress...

PJ: imo, there's a lot of restaurants in the Serendra area that won't really make you want to come back. :)

Mia: sa 13th month/2 na lang! :D
