Date Day! --

Johann and I decided that we were going to treat ourselves to lunch at a place we've never been to before. With the heat and the weather as it is, we were limited to Gateway and the surrounding areas. We found ourselves in Marikina Shoe Expo -- our first time there and we had lunch at Bellini's.

The food at Bellini's was delicious -- Johann had the Seafood Risotto and I had Pesto on Fettucine. The service, however, was a little "bleh" -- the waiter taking our order was busy fixing the table beside us while he was taking our order. We weren't sure if he heard our order or if he got it right. It also took them long to serve our drinks and to replenish our water. The serving size was also a bit small, considering how much the meals cost.

For dessert, Johann and I visited the newly-opened Dairy Queen at the Gateway Food Court. They were busy and packed! And the quality of their ice creams suffered a little. I had the Pecan Delight, which is Pecans and chocolate. The chocolate and the nuts were only mixed on the top 1/3 of the ice cream -- when I dug deeper, it was all vanilla.

BUT --

It was soooooo yummy! I love gooey, melty ice cream!

The people behind Dairy Queen also brought in Orange Julius and I can't wait to try their smoothies!

We were supposed to watch a movie after, but we were crashing from all the carbs so we headed home.
