Don't even think about it

When you're hungry, your head starts to play with you. Tryin' to bombard you with whatever food you can think of and tells you to go eat it. That's what happened to us on a Thursday afternoon heading to pick up Anna. Tacos El Gordo was the place to go.

I've heard good reviews about the place. Highly recommended by co-workers. And since theres one a few blocks away from where I was, I might as well try it.

The moment I stepped foot inside the place, there's that feeling you're walking into an authentic Mexican joint. Place was the typical fast-food. A bit crowded and a bit of a wait for the food. They had separate lines for different types of tacos. Naturally, I headed to the one where there's a huge line. They also make their own tortillas which was great.

I told myself, "$2 for two Tacos? Not bad". Wrong! It was $2 for one taco! A mini taco, that is! The food tasted great, I can't deny that. But jeez, for that price I could have bought something that would have definitely filled us up. I ended up spending $38 in total of assorted tacos for the three of us.

That was the last time I am going to that place.

[Edit: the wife just read I spent $38. she said definitely it's tacos el ripoff!]

At the M

Last night was nice a breather for everyone who attended. A BYOB event for the staff of Sharp Chula mostly from the ICU.

We had the party over at Marjorie's house. There were tons of food and overflowing drinks. Nice time just mingling and chatting. Even though we see each other everyday, it was still a nice get away from all the work-related hullahbalu that happens.

I was again the designated photographer for the event, which I don't mind. I may not be on some of the pics (sometimes, not at all), but I get to see and photograph all the insane and crazy stuff that goes on. Plus I get the upper hand on what photos go online or which would rather be not seen at all.

Plus this party was long overdue. Since I got here, I would say I've only been to maybe two or three "legit" ICU parties in the past. No one tried to organize one until this. And for some reason it is always better to plan NOT to plan. Impromptu events are always well attended and guaranteed to materialize.
