Mga Imbak na Marka: wedding preps

panic panic panic! fun fun fun!

just a couple of days to go… and i’m panicking!!!

no invitations printed yet but the design’s pretty much done. all i need to do is print the pages and stuff them in envelopes and send them off to the guests!

got the inspiration (actually i decided to copy almost everything because i wasn’t in the mood for any creativity brainsqueezing) online but i just can’t remember where. 😛

having had some experience with GIMP, i put this together with some free fonts and free brushes from the internet.

the missalette’s done and will just require the approval of the parish priest. the Marriage License is being processed, i already have my confirmation and baptismal certificates. the seminar’s coming up after all of that.

we already had our pre-nup during a rainy rainy weekend (thankfully the storm didn’t head for land! Thank you Lord!) and have most of the preps down pat. but i can’t stop myself from thinking how close the day is and i feel like there’s still so much work that needs to be done!

i guess i just need to pull myself together and take it slow a little bit. get composed and put my mind into a calmer state.

breathe in. breathe out. relax…

that noodle house on divisoria

just because i can’t remember the stall’s name, that’ll be the title of my post. LOL

busy with the wedding preps, saturday becomes ‘divisoria pilgrimage day’ for me. but it isn’t all that “fun, fun, fun”. nevertheless, it’s a necessary thing to do. so “aja!” all the way! 🙂

i love manila. i love the busy streets. i love the noise. i love the crowd. but too much of a good thing can be bad sometimes. 😛

A already went to divisoria the other weekend to choose the design, get her measurements, and her aunt’s (who’s our ninang), her niece’s (our abay), and her mom’s as well. but that day, we just picked the gowns up and tried them on.

took a while to fit and discuss other stuff which i have no concern or idea what it was about. LOL! but it was merienda time and so we went to this little noodle house joint nearby. i’m not sure but i think it was “ming’s noodle house” 🙂

as a first-timer, i really didn’t know what to order. and being merienda time, rice meals would be a bit much for me to handle so i selected the simpler wonton noodle soup and A had the wonton beef noodles. nothing complicated. and a glass of iced tea for each. it cost us about P90.00 each.

looks pretty simple to me: noodles with “pechay Baguio” and roasted garlic in beef broth with some spring onion on top. maybe i got used to the ‘bland’ taste in the other restaurants but i found this recipe salty. tipong gumuguhit sa lalamunan na nakaka-ubo na? so i had to ask for water para di naman maghalo-halo ang lasa if i drank the iced tea. it wasn’t really very salty. maybe i just expected it not to be salty that’s why inubo ako. but i did finish the whole thing! LOL! one good part about this is that the bowls are super huge and you can drown in the iced tea worth P25!

so maybe what i can say about this noodle house is that it’s “good” but not “great” for my tastebuds. will i go back? sure, why not! it’s not the best but comparing to the aristocart-type vendors on the street, this is a couple of notches higher. for the price and you get to sit rather comfortably (though not aircon) it’s pretty reasonable.
