enough! you had us at lobsters! so last night we trooped to pepato in greenbelt 2 (haven't been there in ages. sure has changed...). luckily, there were six lobsters left. well, now four because we ordered two. see that baby up there? that's 1.2 kilos. and we ate the whole damn thing all by ourselves! well, that's because the other guy with us is allergic to lobsters and couldn't share (which was OK because we didn't want to share, hehe...). so if you love lobsters, reserve now! they're going fast!
