I would like to apologize to myself and I hope I’ll accept it, LOL….
Today, we went to my son’s favorite stroll place, Ayala malls in Makati and had late lunch at around 1:20 PM at JOHN and YOKO, a restaurant in Greenbelt 5 that claims to be a fusion of the East and the West (having named after John Lennon and Yoko Ono). It’s a Japanese resto with a twist – say one of their dishes is called JAPAELLA for example.
I was so excited to bring my wife Tina and son Gabby there for us to compare its difference from its sister-company, SUMO SAM which we’ve tried several times. It was already past lunch time but the place was still packed, just a proof that food and service must be really good. And one of my virtual friends, Anne had strong recommendation for John and Yoko so there was no hesitation for us to try it.
When we’re guided to our seats by the waitress clad in gray collared uniform and a micro-mini skirt wearing high-heeled boots (whew!) and saw the ambience of purple and orange cozy lights despite the congestion of diners, we’re excited to order.
I chose my Sumo-sam favorite- Seafood omelet (which John and Yoko also has), Tina had Beef Wagyu rice and Gabby had Kani Nori Tempura. For our drinks, we had botomless iced teas in red (calamansi), green (lime) and blue (dalandan).
Then just before our orders were served, I already took nice shots of the plate, chopsticks and table napkin marked with the restaurant’s name and logo. Ofcourse I also had pictures of our meal for blog posting then enjoyed the late lunch.
And did we like the food? Yes! Sarap. Though a little pricey just like Sumo-Sam, and we had to wait for about 20 minutes and the wait staffs were not that smiley, appeared to me they got attitude -I don’t know, still we enjoyed what we ate. Yummy!
We walked through the entire Greenbelt malls, literally – from G5, G3, G2 and G1… also took photos of the lush greens amidst the malls and a chapel in a man-made lagoon… and suddenly the inevitable thing happened!
I ACCIDENTALLY DELETED ALL PHOTOS TAKEN AND WAS LEFT WITH NOTHING!
I HONESTLY DIDN’T BREATHE FOR 3 SECONDS AND FELT I HAD MY MOST STUPID DAY EVER!
I was negligent not to click PROTECT on our digicam immediately after taking those shots.
To REGRET was the very FUTILE thing to do now.
It was such a lesson learned .
A thing charged to experience.
One for the books.
