SANTA CLAUS AND CINNABON

After another fun staycation at F1 HOTEL MANILA, we headed to Podium to meet with my gorgeous BP Group. You see, my little lord Andrei will soon be having a Mcdonald's birthday party and since Mareng Gem cannot make it as she had a wedding to attend to, she generously promised to treat all of the kiddies for a 1 hour playtime in Kidsville! Wopeee! Even if we're supposedly tired and there was school the next day, everyone in THE YAPPY BUNCH was looking forward to it! Well, Kidsville WAS actually the happiest place on earth (or Ortigas) at the moment for my kiddies and they were so excited to see their friends. So really, there was no discussion there to what would most most likely be, another crazy session.

So after depositing our tiny masters in Kidsville, what to do? We all wanted to just sit down over a cup of hot coffee and chat since it is what we are best at. But then, it seemed like Podium was asking for it by having a Christmas display at the mall events area. We went there and became our usual silly selves that gave our kids ample reason to be embarrassed.

Good thing they were not there! He he he he he he!


PODIUM MALL, CHRISTMAS,

We saw Santa Claus sitting all by his lonesome at his red chair so we all went there to cheer him up a little. 

Yub and I had a picture with him first.



PODIUM MALL, CHRISTMAS,

Of course, when it's ERICJAZ FOODIES, a wacky shot was ALWAYS in order.



PODIUM MALL, CHRISTMAS,

Santa seem to be getting all festive up inside when 5 ladies flocked around him.



PODIUM MALL, CHRISTMAS,

I got surprised when he said, "Stand up babies" and so we did! He he he he he!

Or was it "Stand up LADIES?" Now that seems less perverted. Tee Hee!

When we were taking more pictures than usual so I apologized to Santa and added "Isa na lang po". Somebody from the group then pointed out (while smiling) "He doesn't know tagalog!"

Oops! He he he he he he!



PODIUM MALL, CHRISTMAS,

We then moved over to the stage because it was so empty and inviting.



PODIUM MALL, CHRISTMAS,

Of course, the BP's would also end with a wacky shot. That's me channeling Kuya Jose Manalo. He he he he he he!!!!

May I just state that in front of the stage were many stalls selling Christmas items? He he he he he! And yes. People WERE looking. 


CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

After our mini-pictorial, we went to CINNABON for some coffee, buns, and to wait until the kids finished in Kidsville.


CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

I've always loved CINNABON as their cinnamon rolls were always freshly baked and luscious to the bite. 


CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

Watching the lady assemble the famous cinnamon rolls always leave me in a trance. Sometimes, just for kicks, I would do a werewolf "hungry" pant until she gets uneasy. Ha ha ha ha ha!




Mati almost grew up with CINNABON (in their Greenhills branch) and I remember him as a 2 year old boy always asking for some "free taste". He he he he he!

CINNABON menu!


CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

By the way, they sell more than just cinnamon rolls because they also have bread and other specialty pastries. My mother in law loves their cinnamon sticks!



CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

My BP Group always have a laugh wherever and whenever! Here are the girls getting all crazy ordering up. Check out the face of the cashier who was laughing along with us.



CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

After the BP ladies were done, Yub ordered for us. Look at his biceps. RAWRRRR!!!!


CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

CINNABON buns have a very soft and chewy dough. It is quite good except that some could get too sweet.



CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

I always get their chocolate cinnamon rolls because the fudgy chocolate drizzle they use as topping somehow combats the cloying taste of the rich cream glaze.


CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

The CINNABON branch in Podium had limited space so it was a good thing that the restaurant was empty that day.

Well, save for that guy STALKING US! Dan dan dan.............

Mareng Gail just had the Iced Mocha (P110.00).

While Yub and Mareng Aning had the chillatas.



CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

I think my husband got the chocolate.


                                             CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

Oh wow... Will you look at that?



CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

My fabulous BP Gals!!! 

Wow! Good thing my husband took it upon himself to cut out my "biceps". He he he he! Maybe he already learned from "experience". Tee hee!



CINNABON, PODIUM MALL,

The BP guys!!! Missing Joji (Gem's hubby) here.



KIDSVILLE, PODIUM MALL

After an hour, we went to Kidsville to pick up our little masters who were all groaning and complaining as they wanted to play some more with friends. 

It's great that our kiddies are all friends with each other that when the BP group converges, Mati and Andrei are more than eager to join us!



KIDSVILLE, PODIUM MALL

Of course it was probably because they see how much their mommies always have a blast with each other!

SO. There.

    1. Hiya Mr. Snuff!! OMG! SORRY SORRY SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought nakasagot ako dito!!!! To think I even made a long reply!!!!!!!!!! Grrrr! Internet connection again! So sorry :(

      1) ASUUUUUUUS! Naku kung pupunta ka nga sa THE PODIUM, I'm sure nakapambahay ka no heller! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!! Baka nga pag nagpunta ka dun sasabihin ng guard... YES GOOD MORNING MR. CEO! naks!

      2) Si Santa? Actually I'm not sure talaga. Ha ha ha ha ha ha! He looks foreign pero hindi naman siya nagtagalog... We just presumed.

      3) Hay nako yung posing namin sa stage, kulang pa yan! Believe me, nakakahiya. Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Buti na lang our hubs loves us so much ha ha ha ha ha ha!

      4) I remembered your comment before on Cinnzeo... Pero Cinnabon is good din.

      5) Yes Mati was so cute! He will say "FREE TASTE! FREE TASTE!" And he was very chubby pa dati.

      6) Ha ha ha ha! Kasi usually even if magkatabi tabi per couple, hay naku imagine nagsisigawan cos the other kausap nasa dulo. Kaya minsan pag ganitong chika session, naghihiwalay kami. At least yung mga boys nagkakaintindihan din since sila quiet lang ang mga boses. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!

      7) Yes! Nakakatuwa. Kapag birthday parties, quota na kahit sila ang attendees. He he he he he!

      Thank you soooo much dear Niel! Sorry ha? I really value your comments. Mmmmwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    2. Okay lang yun ano, alam ko naman busy ka, at minsan talaga weirdo ang internet natin.

      Pero kung talagang sincere ka sa apology mo, dapat kung nanalo ako ng dream journal eh i-abot mo sa akin ang premyo in person, habang nililibre mo kami ni The Partner sa Spiral!!!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA...

      Mwah! =)
