lunch choices

Noooooooo! *cue dramatic music here*

Okay, so I've been really caught up with all the schoolwork I have to do and I am sort of freaking out. There are a ton of deadlines that are fast approaching and I am really getting a bit stressed out. Therefore, I shall take this time to apologize in advance if I won't be able to post regularly (I've always wanted to post everyday or at least every other day). I'm estimating that starting next week, I will only be able to publish two or three relatively good, well-thought-out posts per week.

Anyway, moving on. It's the weekend and that means I have to leave the comforts of my home (and my studying) to go get food for lunch. I love that word-lunch. The problem is, I don't really know what I want to eat. I have narrowed it down to three choices, though.

1) California Maki

I like my california maki sushi rolls with a dollop of mayonnaise on top. I also like to dip them in soy sauce with calamansi and smooshed wasabi (just a bit since I'm not really a fan of hot food) mixed in. I also like the ones made with mango instead of avocado better. I can get these at the local mall, which is a good 15 minute walk from the condo (10 if you walk really fast. haha) 

2) Goldilocks Chicken Barbecue

I could also go and get some chicken barbecue over at the Goldilocks restaurant which is a mere 3 minute walk down the road from the condo. This meal is filling and tastes yummy but once I'm at the restaurant, I will be tempted to buy a lot of ensaymadas. Google it if you don't know what it is, but it's delicious.

3) McDonald's cheeseburger and fries

For a quick and easy meal, I could also opt for the ever-present McDonald's cheeseburger and fries. The nearest McDonald's restaurant is a 10 minute walk from the condo. Now, I actually have a weird habit when I buy a cheeseburger and fries meal at McDonald's because once I get my order, I immediately lift the bun and remove the sole pickle that always comes with the burger. Of course, I could order for a burger without a pickle but I seem to like it better when I remove the pickle myself. Meh.

Alright, so those are my choices and I'm getting all hungry just thinking about all this food. I wish I could eat all of them (and not get fat, of course) but we don't live in a perfect world and therefore I am only restricted to one. Oh well. What would you rather eat? It doesn't even have to be included in the choices I've mentioned. Perhaps I can get some ideas from you guys. I'm always up for something new.

I am in a pickle,


  1. Yay sushi! 8D
    Eww cheeseburger... The regular hamburgers are waaay tastier~

  2. Goldilocks chicken barbeque - YUM! =D Tell me what you get, I've never had sushi, so DO tell me if you have that and how it was.
    Ps : how do u pronounce ur name, ishashime? and what does it mean?
    also, what's ishashekina?

  3. @Fang: yay indeed! :D but i like cheese, therefore i like cheeseburgers. haha.

    @Sana Castellano: yes, the barbecue is indeed yum! i'm actually veering towards that. haha.
    omy! you've never had sushi? i've already eaten sushi many times before and it is indeed delicious. there are a ton of different kinds but each one is delightfully yummy in their own way. it's hard to explain the taste but it's like having a mouthful of rice and all the other ingredients portioned in such a way that they bring out each other's flavors. haha.

    finally, sorry if you got a bit confused but ishashime is actually my nickname/screen name. it's pronounced ee-sha-shi-mee. it doesn't really have a meaning. isha shekinah pronounced shee-kai-na (kai rhymes with pie) on the other hand, is my real name; the name my parents gave me. haha. i'm not sure what isha really means but i know shekinah means glory of God. :D

  4. OMG! your post made me super hungry =o *drools*
