Jozu Kin

Thanks to Joanne's efforts (aka kakulitan), had dinner last Friday at Jozu Kin in The Fort. We only found out about it through our efforts to look for a Japanese restaurant and thanks to Azrael's Merryland, we found the perfect place to spend our Friday evening and fulfill our quest for new finds.

Jozu Kin is the newest cosmopolitan Japanese restaurant in town, opening just last September 2009 in Burgos Circle, Forbes Town Center, Fort, Global City. The food is awesome!!! They offer new takes on old favorites and they also have all of the favorite Jap dishes. Every bite's a surprise. Price is ok, averaging 400-500 per person.

Will try the different foie gras dishes next time. =P

Our menu for the night: (Pardon me for not being able to remember all the dishes =P)

Maguro Togarashi: spicy tuna with onions and wasabi mayo



jampackedbear's favorite: chicken teppanyaki

Sushi Etiquette

Who knew there were so many rules to eat sushi? I only know (and follow) the one that involves not rubbing the chopsticks together to remove splinters. Glad I follow at least one of them. =)

Bottom Line

Does being an optimist or pessimist really matter? Because at the end of the day, we're all going to be struck by the reality of it all - LIFE IS SHIT.

The 8 Monkeys

Put eight monkeys in a room. In the middle of the room is a ladder, leading to a bunch of bananas hanging from a hook on the ceiling.

Each time a monkey tries to climb the ladder, all the monkeys are sprayed with ice water, which makes them miserable. Soon enough, whenever a monkey attempts to climb the ladder, all of the other monkeys, not wanting to be sprayed, set upon him and beat him up. Soon, none of the eight monkeys ever attempts to climb the ladder.

One of the original monkeys is then removed, and a new monkey is put in the room. Seeing the bananas and the ladder, he wonders why none of the other monkeys are doing the obvious. But undaunted, he immediately begins to climb the ladder.

All the other monkeys fall upon him and beat him silly. He has no idea why.

However, he no longer attempts to climb the ladder.

A second original monkey is removed and replaced. The newcomer again attempts to climb the ladder, but all the other monkeys hammer the crap out of him.

This includes the previous new monkey, who, grateful that he's not on the receiving end this time, participates in the beating because all the other monkeys are doing it. However, he has no idea why he's attacking the new monkey.

One by one, all the original monkeys are replaced. Eight new monkeys are now in the room. None of them have ever been sprayed by ice water. None of them attempt to climb the ladder. All of them will enthusiastically beat up any new monkey who tries, without having any idea why.

And that is how most companies' policies get established.

--- Sad as this story may be, it is true for most companies. We've been taught to be proactive and take the initiative but when when we enter the real world, it really is every man for himself. Heck, that's not even the case here. Each "monkey" just blindly does the norm, no questions asked.


I never thought I'd be lusting over a designer bag but Louis Vuitton's new "Taiga" collection is just too beautiful. I love the simplicity and classic look of the bags, without the screaming LV monogram. Now where can I find look-a-likes? Or fakes? Hahaha

These are my favorites:
