Remember Jatujak? This Thai restaurant was located on the fourth floor of The Block, SM City North EDSA. My colleagues turned friends and I frequent this restaurant because we used to always watch a movie in this building. Thus, it became our go-to restaurant when we crave for Thai food. Jatujak has several offerings and they are all good. We specifically love their Thai Spring Rolls, Pad Thai, and Bagoong Rice. Also, I remember drinking the best Thai Milk Tea here. But that was years ago. So when my family and I went to watch Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, I decided to visit the restaurant again. To my surprise, it’s been replaced by another Thai restaurant called Easy, Tiger – Thai Food with a Kick!
I don’t like mayonnaise that much unless it’s on tuna sandwich or an egg sandwich. I’m also not a fan of dips and sauces. For me, if the food tastes good then there is no need for those. I just don’t want to ruin a perfect dish. But after discovering Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise, I have a change of heart. This unique savoury dip which contains real eggs and high-quality oil; not to mention Omega 3 and 6 is delicious. It also has a creamy texture. When I dipped in a piece of crispy fried chicken, it did not overpower the taste of the dish. Instead, it complements the crispy fried chicken.
If you read my blogs or know me personally, you will definitely say these. Why is she writing about a milk tea shop again? I thought she said that she has a list of milk tea shops she only visits and doesn’t give new shops a second look. My answer is yes, I do keep a list of milk tea shops I only visit and I don’t visit new milk tea shops anymore. Well, except for this one because I gave my younger cousins their Christmas gifts over the holiday break. One of those gifts is a milk tea metal straw. After opening the gift my youngest cousin then shouts, “Milk tea tayo!” And here we are!
One Sunday morning, my family and I decided to search for a nice restaurant at the mall. Sure, malls are busy on a weekend but if you plan to eat after hearing the mass then it’s the best place to be. They basically have it all! So after finding a parking space at SM North EDSA’s new building, we did a little walking and ended up at a place called Tamarind: Taste of Thai. We’ve been to this mall countless times but that was the first time we passed by that area. Thus, we didn’t hesitate to try it.
Ever since I saw the coming-of-age thriller “Birdshot” by Mikhail Red, I’ve been conscious of his works. There are three, in particular, I’m very excited to see – Dead Kids (2019), Block Z (2020), Magic Temple (TBA). On December 1st last year, Netflix finally premiered Dead Kids. What are my thoughts? Based on the details Netflix post on their site, I can say that this movie is indeed dark and suspenseful!
