Ippudo Ramen Finally

I had a ramen phase last year when it was the latest craze & ramen houses were popping up left & right. I wanted to try out ALL. So far, I go to try: Ramen Kuroda in BF, Ramen Nagi in SM Aura, Kessaku in Commercenter Alabang, Hokkaido Ramen Santouka in Glorietta, Ikkoryu Fukuoka also in SM Aura, Wrong Ramen in Burgos Circle, Yushoken in Molito, Ramen X in Alabang Town Center, Koko Ramenya in Roxas Blvd., Tuan Tuan in SM Megamall (more chinese noodle than ramen) and Nadai Fujisoba (more a soba place than ramen too) in BGC.

Then all of a sudden my penchance for Ramen stopped. Maybe because the weather turned unbearably hot. But last week while out on a date with my Lovey, I suddenly wanted to eat Ramen again. And Ippudo proved perfect as we were already in SM Megamall, plus we had never eaten there. Maybe the rain & cooler weather had something to do with it.

Anyhoo, after a long afternoon of walking & going inside every store possible & imaginable (!!!), I was dead tired & I just wanted to sit down & eat a steaming bowl of noodle, then sleep in the car on our way home. I really tire so easily now & if I go a day without napping, my energy level gets soooo low that as soon as I hit the bed I doze off.

I love watching her while she’s unaware that I’m watching her. Sobrang bilis ng panahon. My baby is so dalaga na talaga I can’t believe my eyes. Normally I have all the kids with me, or at the very least my 2 girls, so libang na libang ako at hindi ko masyado napapansin. But during one on one times like this, I get surprised at how much she has changed & bloomed habang pinagmamatyagan ko.

I think I’m too old to be my quiet girl’s barkada. :P She would have had more fun with her Ate around. It’s a phase. In her late teens she will be closer to me again. Just like her Ate. <3 I just have to wait patiently.

I’m sure you’re wondering where my other girl was & why she wasn’t with us. Na-recall! :P

She had a one-day stint for her lab thesis. Hayz! The things she plays with.

Meanwhile, the best girl ever was left at home. She was def not happy, nagmumukmok! ;))

Naku Lelly. Matanda na ako. Hindi na kita kayang alagaan sa mall. Ang likot mo.

Thank you my Lovey for spending the day with me even without Ate. Even though you deny it, I know you would have had more fun talaga with her around. Mag part-2 nalang tayo ok –kasama na rin si Lelly! :-*
