blogging lag... holiday rush... etc...

haven't been blogging lately for the reason that, one, my headset here at work is not working anymore so i can't do my regular music posts. how am i supposed to know if the video i will post sounds okay if i can't even hear it. i don't know when they are going to buy me a new one, so i guess my song posts will be on hold for a while. hay.... two, i've been busy preparing some stuff for work, both work deadlines and christmas party preparations. i've also been busy with my own personal preparations for the holiday season and some trips. well, i guess everybody is, specially at this time of the year.

my mom and i have also been kinda busy buying stuff these past weekends, so we've been frequenting the malls. we're not really buying that much gifts since we don't really have many to give presents to since we hardly see old friends or relatives. i myself haven't really been buying gifts for my godchildren since in my experience the past years, my gifts were just wasted or outgrown since they nor their parents don't really find the time to see me or meet up. maybe if i have a car, i would've played santa and drop every gift to their houses. but then again, that will be too tiring and impractical wouldn't it? my godchildren live all over the metro. don't tell me i have to drive from the north, where i live, all the way down south. i even have some godchildren living off town or i think even out of the country, so how's that? so much for being santa alright! sigh... gone are the days when godchildren visit each and every godparent during christmas time. well, i can't blame these kids or their parents. who would want to go visit his/her godparents if they will just hide from you?

in my opinion, parents should get really close friends for godparents to their children, those whom they really trust and with whom they maintain a connection with throughout the years. besides, that's the real meaning of being a godparent, isn't it? a godparent is supposedly someone who can also be a parent to your child. it is not some fund raising activity of sorts, or a parade of wealthy and well-known individuals posing for the christening pictures. unless you expect someone to bail out your kid if ever he gets into trouble, well then ya, i can understand why you get a congressman, or even a president! oh well...

anyhow, after a few weekends that mom and i have been going to the mall, it was only this last one that i was able to bring my digicam, accidentally. it was in my bag because i went to conspi's anniversary the night before. although i never took any pic that night. ya, i know. weird. haha... there's nothing to take pictures of anyway. oh, but that's another story. anyway, it was good that i remembered that i had the cam in my bag, so i took some shots of the food we ate at a new thai resturant at sm city north edsa, the block named jatujak. i haven't done food blogging in a while. so, i hope this is a good jumpstart since the lag.

i can say that the food is nice, though i didn't like how they prepared the pad thai noodles i ordered. it's too sweet for me. the best tasting food of all our orders was the one i wasn't able to take a shot of. i was too hungry already since i didn't have breakfast. hahaha... i forget the name of it, but it has crispy fish flakes on top and underneath is shredded green mangoes. yum! i will definitely go there again to try the other kinds they offer in their menu.

i like what they did to their ceiling. simple but nice.

the pad thai noodles i ordered

Add Video rice served in a nice silver cup

my mom ordered crispy pork something... i forget the name. hehe... it's very, very crunchy like chicharon, but not oily. :)

i love that cute little purple elephant.. hihi....

it was a great thai food experience and i hope to taste more of jatujak's food in the future! so to the purple baby elephant... see you soon! :)
