Si Kap, wala talaga akong bilib pag nagyaya kumain sa labas. I have like, ZERO faith in him when it comes to eating out, coz I know it’s gonna be somewhere.. you know, SKETCHY! :P So when he kept asking us if we wanted to eat Thai for dinner one night, I didn’t pay much attention because 1.) It’s SO unlike him to initiate a food trip -AND PAY! 2.) It’s SO unlike him to crave for anything! So I checked immediately if he had a fever. Something was NOT right in his world.
Since lunchtime, he had been asking if we wanted to eat Thai. And I KNOW him. He only eats either Filipino food, Chinese food, or Japanese food. In that order. Ano itong Thai-Thai na sinasabi nya??? #kaloka
So to satisfy my curiosity about this Thai place that he speaks highly of, I huddled the kids and off we went with their father to who knows where. Basta somewhere in Paranaque daw. Ohhh I said. I knew it. So hindi na ako nag-kilay at lipstick! :P
We ended up here. In SEN LEK THAI NOODLES. I wasn’t very hopeful, in all honesty. Feel ko diet ako that night. Boy, was I wrong. As soon as I tried the magic kangkong & the enchanted tokwa, I knew my acid reflux was gonna kill me that night. ANG SARAP! (Ok maybe not 5-star sarap but definitely not the cheap kind either. It was more than palatable.) Kailangan ng extra rice. Def!
The 2 dishes that made me a believer that night. Pwedeng balk-balikan..
So I said to him. Vetsin yan. And he guffawed. Pang-chinese food lang daw ang vetsin. Really? I didn’t know that. :P

The pictures above may not look appetizing. But believe me, ubos lahat. And the best thing? Our bill was only 1.8k Kap was smiling from ear to ear. Ano daw ang sinabi ng Benjarong. Oh em. I almost fell from my chair. Honey, MADAMI ok! Madaming sinabi ang Benjarong. Please.
Nakalusot ka na this one time. Huwag O.A., huwag abusado, at lalong wag feeler! It was ‘Ayt. Yun na yun. Pero hindi Benjarong levelz noh! :P
But seriously Honey. I love you dearly for all that you are, all that you have been, and all you’re yet to be. Happy 29th Anniversary! <3
