discoveries after the wedding bells


ive never been a fan of jim carey, well, because i find him too over acting (i know, i know, that’s his job for goodness sake!) but tonight, hubby got free passes to Yes Man and because the reviewer had nothing better to do, a trip to the movies it was.

armed with my signature hot chocolate (non fat, no whip, extra hot), we took our seats and well, we laughed our heads off!  it was, surprisingly, a good movie!  it was funny without over doing it.  i particularly loved this jumper song scene

positively themed movies are definitely what i need these days.  i guess no matter how far you’ve gone up the career ladder, there are still experiences that will scare you and render you feeling pretty much the opposite of confident!

last weekend we went to see bedtime stories.  in contrast to jim carey, i like all of adam sandlers movies.

bedtime stories was pretty subdued but still a good watch.

after the movie we went to try kenny roasters at the power plant.

wait a sec, its not like we’ve never eaten kenny’s before, in fact it used to be a staple when makati was our “unwind place” back in college (talk about history!), but ive always been intrigued with kenny’s at power plant because, well, it looks different from the line up and order kenny’s and the menu sported some new dishes.

the crew was pretty busy but we were seated right away and our orders taken as soon as we were ready.

as we waited for our orders they us served corn bread

kennys-2this tasted just like the corn muffins of the original kenny rogers roasters but in a different shape.

our seafood chowder came first

i liked this creamy concoction especially because the chef was not stingy with the seafood. there were clams, shrimps and fish fillet pieces among others.

my philly cheese steak sandwich was served next

the meat was pretty good, it was cut thinly with just the right amount of fat. i did however wish there were more cheese and that the bread was not whole wheat. it didnt really go well.

the chips were however crispy good.

their chips are supposedly made fresh.

hubby’s order of lamb came next

it was a good subject for my LX3 but we had better tasting lamb. maybe we should have just stuck to the place’s specialty (chicken!)

despite some disappointments in our ordered dishes, we did however enjoy their service.  the head waiter eagerly attended to our needs and seemed like he was on top of everything, a far cry from “across the counter service” of the original restaurant.

so kudos to kenny’s roast and grill!  a few tweaks in the non chicken dishes would definitely be added asset!
