Fun. Adventure. Buzz!
Marlou and I have been friends since 1976 — 36 solid years shared by two women who met in a far flung city in Northeastern Mindanao. When we met, I was already a newbie mom to a year-old son and Marlou was newlywed to my husband’s childhood friend, Mayong. We were in our early 20s then, full of dreams and both looking forward to raising our own families.
Finding a common ground for us to relate to and cement our friendship on was not difficult. We were both Manileñas and graduates of the state university. We sort of talked the same “ language” so we jibed.
After almost four decades of friendship and five kids (Marlou has a son and daughter while I have three sons) we still share a lot of things in common, one of which is food.
Our taste buds’ adventures are nonstop quests for an unforgettable palate experience. Pardon the cliché but isn’t that what we always hope for when dining out, specially when a premium price is attached to it? Marlou’s unica hija and my goddaughter, Chuchay, suggested that we try Wagyu Grill and Steakhouse at the Eastwood Mall. It was Marlou’s first visit to this mall so we had to make our lunch a memorable one. The steak we had had a grade 8 marbling description. Truly the 300 gram juicy wagyu steak exceeded our expectations. (by Lou Dagondon)
