After months of waiting (ok maybe only weeks…) Poker Stars finally came to Cebu. Now I don’t play poker and I don’t really enjoy watching it being played either. But I was extremely excited because it brought 2 of my favorite people to Cebu with it!
They say they were here for work, but I know they were here for me ;) Haha!
On their first night I took them to Banri. Here’s a little back story:
I was telling Sabs that I noticed there were no “real” japanese restaurants in Manila. None that were in our price range at least. Of course she vehemently denied this. I asked her to name one and she replied simply:
Rai Rai Ken?
So I felt the to need to have her taste “real” japanese food…. the kind that didn’t come in disposable containers. And she wanted to have dessert at La Marea so I opted for Banri.
The meal was good, even if Sabs and I were both sniffling and Mikko ate most of it. I don’t have any proof of this because although there were 2 photographers and 2 bloggers present at that meal, none of us thought to bring a camera.
Afterwards, I took them back to my place and grabbed my cam so we would have something to remember the night with.
The photo’s aren’t great, but the memories were terrific :)
We tried to get a photo of the view but damn that tree…
(editing to add this shot) here’s the view we were trying to get a photo of:
I took this after all our vanity shots heh heh :) EXIF: 62mm (cropped into a pano) – 20secs. – f/5.3 – ISO100
My brother and his friends were also at the house playing Rock Band and halfway through our photo session Mikko mysteriously disappeared…
More photos at my multiply. For contacts only though (cause I’m shy that way wahaha). And more stories to come (as soon as I get the photos from Mix).
And the lesson to this story: Urchin is not a crustacean.
You had to be there…
