(I’m back. Maybe I really am just having another hormonal imbalance last night due to my uterus (eww yes) but hey after posting last night’s sentiments I really felt okay, so yes, back to blogging!)
One by one, things in our Before Eternal Summer bucketlist are being crossed out and we couldn’t get any happier. Just recently, Twinny brought me to Santorini to serve as a treat after I revamped her blog (but I ended up treating her back a lovely dessert at yet another Korean café; which I will put in a separate post).
Santorini is a Korean restaurant standing along the Tigers’ den in P. Noval. Being famous to students (especially K-POP fans students) and having only six available tables, we are lucky that the odds are in our favor because when we got there, there’s only one vacant place. Upon entering the door, you will already feel the K-POP vibes. (Note: I am no K-POP fan and will never be. But Twinny is so yep. (Don’t worry Twinny, that didn’t made me love you any less. :P) The only reason why I agreed to add this in our bucketlist is because of Korean’s spoon! I’m in love with it. Hah.) K-POP idols’ posters are posted on the walls, K-POP fans’ notes expressing their wholehearted love for their biases, (that one, I learned from Twinny. Haha!) and the television mounted on top plays K-POP music videos and shows. I swear, hindi ko kinaya when Infinite performed and Twinny went fangirling. Good thing she didn’t brought her Infinite fan out! (Yes, she has that. She got it when she went to their concert) Or else, I’ll walk out. Just kidding! ;) Well indeed, the place is really a haven for K-POP bugs.
It was my first time trying a Korean food. Twinny and I ordered a Bulgogi for the price of P160.00 (Correct me if I’m wrong Twinny!) and it doesn’t taste bad. The taste has a resemblance to Moshi-Moshi’s Gyudon. I’m definitely looking forward for another Korean food experience. I want to try Bibimbap, Kimchi and Ramen!
For Korean lovers out there, check this resto out and you won’t regret a single thing!
I once came across your name; a string of letters that reminded me of the past that can never come back and will never do. It sparked something within me. Realization coursed through my veins like blood pounding in and out of my heart. We changed, you and I. And we drifted apart like perpendicular lines that crossed paths only once. I don’t know what changed- just that something did. Our friendship deteriorated but we pretended not to notice so we won’t have to try and save it. Died quietly like a star. Which reminded me of something. I read once about ambiguous loss. It is a death without a body involved. Gone yet still remains. It is a suffering you feel for people who are still alive yet already dead to you. And you. You are an ambiguous loss. My ambiguous loss.
