Withdrawal Symptoms

Shet. 72 hours of no DSL after my arrival from Davao. Followed by 120 hours of intermittent connection. (Read: 3 mins of surfing then 15 mins of no connection, then another 3 mins of surfing, followed by another 15 mins of no connection...this went on and on for the next five days. Enough to make me pull the hair out of the inept technician's head, who replaced our cable modem.) No email, no multiply, no blogspot, no wordpress, no picasaweb, no, no friendster, no twitter, no facebook. Terrible withdrawal symptoms for 7 days.

Thank heavens it's now fixed.

It's good to be back online.

3AM, A Pre-Pre-Halloween Story

Wednesday, 10 October 2007. It was our second night in Malagos. I woke up at 3am (technically thursday morning) to go to the bathroom. I lingered a bit at the sink, washing my hands with warm water and to check if my duck loofah was dry. I went back to my bed and crawled underneath the heavy blankets. Our AC was cranked up on high. I turned on my side and faced the wall. I could hear Carol snoring softly on the next bed.

Then I heard a loud and audible whisper. Just behind me.

"San na kayo?"

My heartbeat kicked into high gear because Carol's snoring never stopped. I did a 180 on the bed and peered at her. She was fast asleep. I called out her name softly, but she kept on sleeping and snoring. I went cold all over and sweat broke on my forehead. My hands went clammy.

Who the heck whispered?????

Unnerved and totally freaked out, I couldn't go back to sleep. I plugged my ears with the earbuds and turned on my mp3 player. Then I shut my eyes, and concentrated on the lyrics of each song I heard.

The next night, I changed hotels.

Move over Mr. Kabab. Grilled Tomato is here.

(Pansin ko puro pagkain ang bina-blog ko lately ah..)

I remember Gabby telling us that a classmate of hers from ISCAHM was opening a little persian restaurant in the Tomas Morato area. We chanced upon it yesterday; it was a few steps from the corner of T. Morato and Scout De Guia. The food is really good. The menu is divided into six: favorites, starch, short order, gyros, sidings and drinks. (They don't have dessert, but they said that they're still working on the menu.) It's flavorful but not overpowering, which made me thoroughly enjoy every spoonful, forkful and handful.

Their prices are so reasonable. Each meal (rice with viand) ranges from Php55 to Php90. (Cheaper than Mr. Kabab.) And the servings are hefty! If you add a small amount, you can even opt to have all the rice you can eat. They add Php20 for drinks if you're getting a meal. They serve the usual: sodas, yogurt shakes, beer (sanmig and coors) and ice milk tea (my favorite so far).

The restaurant is divided into smoking and non-smoking areas. Because it's also located just a bit off T. Morato, it's quieter, which I like.

Iced Milk Tea in a very tall glass (Php55)

Our appetizer, pita bread (you can order as many pieces as you like; they charge Php15 per piece) served with curry dip (Php25). Curry dip is okay with me, but if you're looking for something substantial, then you might not enjoy it.

Keema with Rice. (Daming rice!) Yummy. (Php90 with drink)

Chicken Tikka
(Php55, for two pcs it's Php90) One piece is enough, but I was soo hungry, I ordered two.

I had the beef kebab before (Php90 for two servings) and it's much better than the special chelo at Mr. Kabab. I look forward to trying their gyros next time.
