In N Out in Manila?

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Yes it’s true! The famous burger is in Manila…but only for today! If I knew about this earlier, I would have dragged Ane to BHS. But then again he just ended his two-week vacation from work so he can’t possibly go on leave today. I don’t know why they’re here but I‘m guessing a local company is thinking of buying the franchise and they would like to feel first if people will bite. I heard this “feeler” was a success because supplies ran out immediately.

Maybe we can expect a store here soon?

I am on the fence about it though. I am excited that In N Out will possibly be made available here, because I already miss eating it (the last time I had one was when Mom hand-carried a box of burgers from San Francisco, in 2009 [?]). But making it that accessible to me? That kills the excitement, me thinks. Just like Krispy Kreme and Ihop.

Lesson not learned?

It happened once, with coffee. And it happened again today, with water. It seems like I never learned my lesson the first time, that hubby was so annoyed I spilled on my laptop again. Yes I promised I won’t place any liquids on my table where I work, but I broke that promise yesterday (and for weeks hence). It was an accident, but I still felt so bad about it. Good thing, my laptop was not seriously damaged, unlike that one story I heard that he had to get a replacement sanyo battery from after spilling soda on his unit. Hubby said I should really be thankful because he won’t replace my laptop anymore if I break it due to carelessness.

There’s no excuse anymore if it happens again.

I saw this image once again and I still find it funny:


Image from one of the pages in FB. It’s in Filipino but explaining it will kill the humor. But I will explain for my English-speaking readers (as if I have any LOL). The tortoise is challenging the hare, who gets to go home first. When the hare agrees, the tortoise promptly pulled his extremities in. The hare says a bad word. :D

You can’t help but get curious when you see one thing over and over again. It doesn’t help that people are raving about it online. I wanted to try Speculoos Cookie Butter since the week it made the rounds in Instagram. But when I found out that a jar sells for p525 (about $13), I had second thoughts of course. Is it worth it? And then someone mentioned that in the US, if you buy it straight from Trader Joe’s, a jar is only $4! Surely, I will not buy that p525 anymore right?!

And then…Tadaaaa!


I emailed my sister about a week before their flight to Manila and now I have four jars of Cookie Butter! :) My verdict: Yes, it is yummy (and I refuse to share them LOL) but it’s not something I would crave all the time and definitely not something I’d buy for $13!
