ON RANDOM THOUGHT. The Friend Zone

by on Aug.16, 2015, under Me, Random Thought

So I wake up at 343am because I have this urge to write about The Friend Zone. Please bear with me if some of the grammar are incorrect. 

What is The Friend Zone?

According to The Attraction Doctor, “The friend zone” refers to a situation where one individual in a friendship develops more intense feelings and wants to become “more than friends” with the other person. In his article, he also mentioned the reason why people get stuck in The Friend Zone, and how to escape The Friend Zone. (To read the article please click here)

Anyway, I’m writing this to escape the situation, I’m writing because I want to share my experience/s on why do we get stuck in that situation.

Why do we get “Friend-Zoned”?

  1. We are too nice for them. That the other person to expects us to do be always there for them, and that when we do nice things for them we expect that one day all our efforts will be recognized.
  2. We are always there for them. That the other person becomes to comfortable with our presence. Make the other person feel our absence, then you’ll know you’re worth to that person – plus, they might just miss you more. Always remember, absence makes the heart grow fonder.
  3. We are too comfortable. That we tend to forget that you like this person and that you want a deeper relationship.
  4. We have labeled ourselves to be this for this person. That the other person would call you or text if you are available to hang and chill over drinks and to listen to their problems over this person. And the two of you would just whine and dine for the next couple of hours.
  5. We are too clingy. For me, being clingy is OK for friends, but when you are in that point and stage with that other person, lets stop being clingy and step up our game.
  6. We need to be vocal. Lastly, we need to be vocal. Seriously, nothings gonna happen if you don’t say what you truly feel for that other person.

IN MY OPINION. Ramen Tei

by on Jan.11, 2015, under Food/Restaurant Review, In My Opinion, Me, Works

Its Sunday and I just finished watching the DLSU vs. ADMU volleyball game. So sad that DLSU lost to ADMU making them the number 2 team after the first round of eliminations; anyway I know they’ll bounce back during the second round of eliminations.

Anyway, I’m back in my blogging habit, this time lets review a Japanese restaurant in Cagayan de Oro (CGY), my first travel for 2015 and my first time in Mindanao.  And yes, I was in CGY last Wednesday, 7 January 2015, for work. We have this award called Developmental Social Enterprise Awards (DSEA) and we are in the haunt for the “best” social enterprise in the Philippines. And one was nominated from CGY and we had to fly to CGY and conduct an interview, with video, and site visit of their office. I was not only, I only “video-d” the interview, I was with a colleague. The day was packed – from Laguindingan International Airport we had our quick breakfast then straight to the office in Iligan, which was approximately 1.5 hours of drive – without traffic. The interview started at a little past 9am, and ended at around 1130am. After the interview we went to one of their site in Lanao, which was approximately 1.5 hours of drive – without traffic. Just imagine how long the drive was and how far the office was to the site. We arrived at the site we asked some questions and checked the area. After that they served us lunch. After lunch we went back to the office. Little more questions then they drove us to out hotel in CGY, which was approximately 3 hours of drive – (yes) without traffic. We arrived at our hotel around 730, checked-in, freshen up then we went out to look for a place where we can eat out dinner.

To make the long story short, we found this “authentic” Japanese restaurant – Ramen Tei, I’m not sure if they have a branch here in MNL, but I haven’t heard of it, so I’m guessing they don’t. We decided to eat ramen that night, the regular sized one – good for two, yes we were that hungry. I decided to order their Chicken Ramen.

Update: There’s Ramen Tei in Ortigas, this is the reason why I don’t know there’s one – I don’t go to Ortigas.

The location

Their restaurant is located at Rosario Crescent, Cagayan de Oro, just outside Limketkai Center and beside Krisy Kreme, which is a good thing because it will be easier to locate and they can open and close whatever time they want to – wasn’t able to check what time to open and close.

I’d give the location a 5/5.

The food

They do offer a wide array of Japanese food, they also have the budget friendly meal good for people who wants to eat “sumptuously” but within the budget. Like what I previously mentioned, I ordered their Chicken Ramen.

Chicken Ramen

Chicken Ramen

Nothing fancy actually, the soup is blah. Its just like any other soup you can order at a fast food chain, its Chicken broth cubes boiled in water, thats the taste; its very oily (please see photo) and forgettable. The chicken strips, vegetables and others are okay. Nothing fancy really. For the price of PHP250, I didn’t get the worth of my money.

I’d give the food 2/5.

The experience

Though, their service is quite fast I was not really impressed. I mean, they are saying that they are “authentic” and after my first bite of the ramen I ordered, it was a major disaster.

I’d give the experience 2.5/5

The price

It was not worth-it, after tasting the ramen, it was over-priced.

I’d give the price 1/5.

 

Just to share, I’m not really a fan of Japanese cuisine before, but through some miracle I’ve become a fan of Jap. From time to time, I’m craving for sashimi and sushi. And Ramen Tei was a let down to my palette.

 

Will I recommend others to try this place? No.

Will I be back here? Maybe no, since its in CGY. 

Overall, I’d give Ramen Tei a 1.5/5
