Monday thoughts #4 : I want to travel the world, but first…?

Maybe the places on these pictures looks very familiar for you, guys. Maybe you’ve been there. But I have only seen it on pictures. I haven’t been anywhere! It’s my ultimate dream to travel the whole world. These are just some of the few countries I wish to visit before I reach the age of 30. But there’s a lot more, they’re just too much to be mentioned one by one. Nobody can deny the beauty of our world. It’s too beautiful not to be seen by our naked eyes.

Somebody once told me, “Stand up and go somewhere nice and beautiful. Travel and see the world while you still can because after 20 years, you will not regret the things that you did, but the things that you did not do.” Which I thought is true.

So by then I’ve decided. I want to see the whole world with my own eyes. I want to meet different people and try to understand their culture. I want to share our own culture as well. I want to travel and be on different places before I cant do it anymore then in the future, I can look at my pictures and I can say,

Ive been there. Ive understood the people. Not by their language but by their culture. For a few days  i felt what they are feeling. It was a bit strange but those days, i somehow felt more alive.

Ive been there. I have witnessed the beauty of that place. Thank God for His wonderful creation. A creation which is made by love and must be a subject of the people’s love too. For a moment I thought I saw a glimpse of heaven, but i somehow felt more alive.”

But…..

I told you guys, I have never been anywhere!!! I’ve never even travelled my own country!

Hello hello hello Philippines! As far as you may know, Philippines are rich of beautiful places that you could visit. Nature is our big trend! But who am I to say these things wherein fact I did not yet visit any of these places. Then i thought, if I want to travel the world, I should at least travel around my country first right?

For sure I will!! And I believe I will be starting in a few months. Kung may kabayan readers diyan! Any suggestions of places sa unang gala ko sa pinas? Comment below!

Ps: I was supposed to post this last night but something came up. I hope you guys understand!

Monday thoughts #4 : I want to travel the world, but first…?

Pappa Roti

It was a cold afternoon in the middle east and all you’ve wanted for snack was something hot. That was when a friend of my mother let me have the famous hot bun from Pappa Roti. I’m not a bread type of person. I don’t like bread unless if it has something inside or if I have something to pair it with like coffee. PappaRoti buns are hard to resist. It has a certain sweet aroma that makes you want to taste it. Then I did. I did not regret it.

To be honest, I’ve been passing around Pappa Roti a lot and the smell is really inviting which makes me wants to go inside and ask them to give me the thing that produces the nice smell. Maybe they will think I’m crazy.

Buns will be served to you freshly cooked. I ordered the one with cheese and honey on top. It has a nice mix of sweet and salty flavor. While you can choose what you can put on top, the inside will be consistent with it’s softness and buttery taste. No wonder why Pappa Roti was also known as the “Father of all buns”

Aside from the signature buns, they are also serving different variety of dishes. From salad to Pasta and Pizza. From coffee, to chocolate drinks and shakes. From hot tea to cold fresh juices. 15608691_1523485564333696_495602103_o

I’ll make review to the few dishes we’ve ordered the next time we went to Pappa Roti (Masdar City)

1 PASTA WITH WHITE SAUCE (of coursehttp://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tab/44704327, white sauce. You know why if you already read my previous review)

Nothing special with this dish. It’s wasn’t served hot. Also the serving is too small for an amount like 34 AED.

2. CHICKEN WRAP

The chicken was cooked nicely. The serving was enough. Also the plating was cool. They used a wooden plate. I can hardly say it’s a plate. At first thought, I think it’s a wooden chopping board. Sorry.. haha

AMBIANCE

They have really relaxing atmosphere. Same old coffee shop style with dark wood tables and chairs. Nice lighting and beautiful chandeliers.The staff are all friendly which are mostly kabayans! Thumbs up to that.

OVERALL RATING

I will rate it 3.5/5 only because the price is a huge factor. For me it’s a bit pricey for it’s small serving plus that pasta which they served cold. The review for the buns will be segregated. I’ll rate it 5/5 of course. xxx~
