Belated 22nd

I'm not really big on birthdays but it doesn't necessarily mean I don't celebrate it. After all, it's another year added to my lifespan, therefore it's something to be thankful for.

Started the day with a run in UP, Diliman with my good friend from high school, Kyle. He treated me for lunch in Roku, a Japanese restaurant that can be found in the 5th floor of Oracle Building along Katipunan Avenue. I love their sushi!

I ordered their best sellers (the rolls) and Chicken Teriyaki (Japanese food default / fave). The one in the upper-right corner is some sort of tuna tempura type of roll, below that are tuna and salmon rolls and Kyle's ramen. Sorry, I totally forgot what the food are called! In my defense, this happened a month ago.

Had dinner with my dad and not-so-little brother at Omakase in Ayala Triangle. Sadly, mom couldn't make it because she wasn't feeling very well. Double whammy on Japanese food!

Sam and papa, enjoying the sushi (I forgot the name again). Also, funny story. The three of us were wearing blue that day! Well you wouldn't see my outfit but I was wearing a light-washed denim vest. Scouts' honor!

After dinner and dessert with my two favorite men, I headed over to Eunice's place to hang out / catch up / relax / wait for David to come pick us up.

From Eunice.

When David got there, we headed over to Dillingers to have a small pre-graming. Plus David's rib eye steak.

After that, we went straight to Today x Future to celebrate my birthday (like what I did last year) with my other friends. Sadly, I don't have pictures for that but it was a really fun night. Thank you for making my night extra fun and special!

Top 10 Favorite Songs in 2012

Maybe a little bit late for a count-down because duh, it's already 2013. And maybe you're thinking that you don't want any of that 2012 crap. But here I am, listing down ten songs that I have been constantly listening to since the previous year started. They aren't necessarily "new", they're just pretty much a random listing of tracks that I kept singing to over and over again.

In no particular order, of course.

1. Bruised - Jack's Mannequin

2. Ridin' feat. Lana Del Rey - A$AP Rocky

3. Your Nickel Ain't Worth My Dime - Sleeping With Sirens
