Somehow, I felt that last weekend was kinda short (bitin in Filipino slang). On Saturday night, the hubby and I along with our two good friends Nice and Melay drove to Alabang for a stroll before going home in Bacoor.
First, we dropped by Alabang Town Center (ATC) to have my phone battery replaced. It was free of charge because the battery was part of a batch being recalled for safety-related defects. We got my phone back the next day (kudos to the Switch team for the fast service!).
When it was time for dinner, the hubby suggested we go back at Ramen Yushoken in Molito with our two ramen virgin friends and they happily obliged. As expected, there was a long queue but we didn’t mind. We got seated faster this time (only after 10 minutes!), so yay to us. It was a very satisfying dinner of our fave Tantan-men, Gyoza and Chahan.
Ramen Yushoken’s Chahan was a meal on its own, and so yummy!
Melay and Nice, ramen virgins no more!
We capped off our Japanese dinner with Korean ice cream! (There’s this Korean grocery in Molito that sells them in various flavors, shapes and sizes.) It’s not every day that my Superf Nice gets to treat us so we took advantage of the opportunity by getting not one but two ice cream cones each. Haha.
To burn some calories, we took a leisurely walk around the huge Molito complex.
Melay ended up sleeping over at home while Nice intentionally didn’t join us because she couldn’t bear the thought of her mom staying alone in their house. Next time na lang daw.
As expected from going home late, we also woke up late on Sunday. After breakfast and lunch and watching the Pacquiao-Algieri boxing fight (which was a victory for our pambansang kamao!), we went back to ATC at 5pm-ish to retrieve my phone. Traversing the South Super Highway on a Sunday night was a breeze. We reached Manila early and still had some time to relax and prepare our things for a new workweek.
As much as I wanted to prolong the weekend, I couldn’t. So I guess I’ll just greet you today with “Happy Monday, friends!” 🙂

Hay! When will Ramen Yushoken come to Manila?! Na-miss ko when I saw your IG post! 😐
Yep, sana nga mag-open din sila. Sa Rob Manila! Hehe. 🙂
Walang traffic nung Sunday! Samantalang nung Sabado grabe traffic. Sana araw araw may fight si Pacman. Hahahaha!
Iba talaga effect ni Pacman, grabe. Haha. 🙂
Hindi pa kami nakaka pasyal sa ATC ang layo kasi samin e. Pero mukhang maganda puntahan. Ang sarap naman ng ramen na yan! Woohoo! =)
Pag nagawi kayo sa Alabang, pasyal kayo dyan. Maganda at maluwang, di ko pa nga naikot lahat eh. Yes, the best yang ramen na yan. I highly recommend it! 🙂
That ramen looks so delicious!
According to the hubby, the best Tantan-men he’s tasted, so far. 🙂
I want to confess something, the last time I went to ATC was way back grade 6 hahahaha Ang layogenic naman kasi sa northerners na tulad ko.
Haha, understandable naman pala. 🙂
