Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!

I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Sunday Affair

Before I begin, let me just get off the subject a bit. I'm not supposed to blog yet, because my mind and my heart are still not in order. I'm confused, and I feel ill. To tell you the truth, I'm seething since last week. I'm stewing over something, or should I say someone. It was like my reptilian brain kicked in and wanted him to grovel and admit defeat. I'm so peeved through his thick skull.

I already cried it all out, and I felt better after that. Now I can smile and goof around as usual, but I still can't stop thinking about it. Thanks for lending me your ears Janine. You're such a loving sister! I just wish though that we ("opponent" and I) could talk about it productively soon. I am determined to hash out our disagreement and give him a second shot, but he has to EARN it.

I felt giddy with joy because my family did something that made me consign what happened to oblivion even for a day. We celebrated my sister Mikee's 12th birthday last Sunday by going to church together, dining out and shopping. We ate at Roadhouse Cafe at SM City. I've always wanted to bond with my stomach and palate there. Thanks to my mother for granting my unspoken wish.



What I like about Roadhouse Cafe is the eye-popping interior design. It looks very sophisticated because of the finely arranged table settings. I love the paintings and frames of vintage vehicles they have all over the place. This restaurant is elegant enough to make diners think that the menu will cost them a lot. 

Roadhouse Cafe serves scrumptious Filipino and Western cuisine. The items on their menu usually starts at 200php approximately. Another thing that I love about this resto is their accommodating staff. They attend to our every queries and needs without a trace of indifference from their pleasant-looking faces.

I wasn't able to take photos of us, because I got too shy to do so. I just did food photography instead. The following are the dishes that we dug in mercilessly...

CALAMARES

CHICKEN CORDON BLEU

KARE-KARE

SOTANGHON

CHOCO CREPE

THE BIRTHDAY CELEBRANT - MIKEE

We would have their famous steak dishes, except that each one costs 200+php/100 gram. At that time, the least gram they had was 400g. That would definitely cost us too much. We'd rather spend the money on something else. Leaving that aside, the food was delicious especially the Chicken Cordon Bleu and Choco Crepe, but they're not as sinfully delectable as I expected. Their plating is also a little boring. Sure I have high expectations on specialty food spots like this. I could say Mom's Kare-Kare is better than theirs. Gotta love my own, eh?

Roadhouse Cafe is located at G/F, SM City Davao Quimpo Blvd. Ecoland, Davao City, Philippines. 

PS: Speaking of food and restaurants, Bigby's Cafe & Restaurant is celebrating its birthday week this week. Avail of their buffet tickets now
