Considering that it’s been a while since my last update and there’s so much brewing in my head right now that I’ve been meaning to write about, I might as well do these digest-style posts so I can get finally get them out of my head. So, with that said, here we go:
- As of today, my family’s restaurant, Maru’s Food Lounge is officially a month old. My entire family back home went through some pretty rough times just for the idea of opening a food joint to come to fruition, and I’m really glad that it’s a hit with the locals and people from neighboring towns. If you’re ever in the neighborhood and looking for a place to eat, do yourself a favor and drop by.
- Speaking of which, I spent this past weekend back home in Mamburao. It definitely was one of the better weekends I’ve had in recent memory. I’m pretty sure that sampling almost everything on our menu has something to do with that.
- Massive, massive round of congratulations to my friend Mia and everyone in SipatLawin Ensemble for a successful staging of Battalia Royale. As much as I wanted to attend the last day of its run on the 23rd, I had other stuff to attend to that night. As announced during the first night, they’ll also be staging it in an abandoned school in Cubao. However, I’ve been told that the shows have been fully booked. Yes, that quickly. I don’t mind having to fight for my ticket/s, though.
- I got around to watching a raw (no subtitles) stream of the first episode of Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters over the weekend. I had my apprehensions at first, especially having just recently finished Gokaiger, but I like what I’m seeing so far. To its credit, the camerawork here seems to be on the cinematic side and the fight choreography looks consistent with the spy theme the show is running on. The suit and mecha designs are growing on me, too. My only gripe so far is YellowBuster’s height inconsistency, which I’m sure could’ve been solved if they hired a shorter suit actor.
