Hooray Thursday: Wonder-Dummied

Post Content

Hello everyone! Hooray Thursday will make way for a new song discovery that I get inspiration from. I am sharing it with you and hoping that you will find inspiration from it, too.

Wonder-Dummied
by Brooke Waggoner

But I’ve never felt this feel so heavy
And I’ve never felt this feel so low
Yeah it is a wake inside my whole soul
But you are my strength I won’t stand alone

And ask for the things you lack in heart
And you can begin a clean new start
Oh to be of the purest of pure in his arms
Yeah he, he will shield you from all harm

I tried my best alone but it got me nowhere and I can’t do it on my own
I tried my best alone but it got me nowhere and I can’t do it on my own
No on my own well it got my nowhere and I can’t do it on my own
Oh on my own yes it got me nowhere and I can’t do it on my own

No on my own yes it got me nowhere and I can’t do it on my own
No on my own yes it got me nowhere and I can’t do it on my own

I’ve never felt this feel so heavy
And I’ve never felt this feel so low

I am loving this song right now and it might make you feel good whatever you are going through right now. If you can’t hear the mp3 here, try to search for an mp3 or video for this song. It’s so much better if you hear Brooke Waggoner sing it. *smile*

*Side story: It’s almost always a blessing in disguise when I don’t go to work. (according to an office mate) Earlier today, a fire almost broke in the office! And few months ago, there was an earthquake that shook our office building. Goodness gracious! Scary! I’m just thankful I eluded more stress and trauma.

We were keen to find a place that will satisfy our palate for good eats at a reasonable price and found ourselves revisiting an old favorite. Although we’re inside a busy city, we felt the distinction upon entering The Old Spaghetti House in Ali Mall. It felt like we stepped into a different world. The restaurant is lit with dim lights, stained glass lamps float above the tables and antique furniture pieces are showcased all over the walls.

There is no doubt that The Old Spaghetti House feels just like a cherished experience with the family. The décor on the walls, which are personal possessions of Lizzie and Chito Guerrero, the owners of the restaurant, friends and family, are priceless. Each piece is unique, irreplaceable, which makes the restaurant feel like a treasured home. The restaurant itself is made of antique wooden panels, antique doors, comfortable bunk seating upholstered with fine fabrics, tiffany lamps, wooden tables, classic batibot chairs, antique decors: brass pots and pans, flower vases, old paintings and art works.

The Old Spaghetti House (TOSH) cooks almost all food items on the menu by the order, so you will have to wait for a good few minutes to finally savor your food.

{ simple pleasure. holding hands with the one you love, it makes the ‘waiting’ bearable. i know. cheesy!! }

Generally, they have good service but we waited longer for our order for that particular visit. Apparently, the other young couple ordered almost the same with ours and the waiter mistakenly brought our order to their table. But the prompt lady assisted us as soon as we followed up.

{ finally, it’s time to eat.. }

His: Spicy Chicken Tom Yum Pizza Php245

It’s crisp, it tasted like it has salsa sauce with togue and chicken cubes. And although it has the taste of raw onions, I liked it. Something new for me and worth the try.

Since I am trying to watch what I eat, I try to gear towards healthy options or alternatives than my usual favorites. And with everyone turning health conscious, it won’t be hard to spot a fruit juice bar that sprouted all over the metro. We passed by Big Chill at Shangri-La mall and craved for the colorful fruit smoothie! Big Chill uses fresh cut fruits like avocado (seasonal), watermelon, grapes and ripe mango.

Other fruits are banana, dalanghita (seasonal), green mango, kiwi, lychee (B’s ultimate fave), melon (seasonal), pineapple and strawberry (seasonal).

They make fruit shakes, fruit smoothies or just plain fruit juices among others.
