A Journey to the World of Genshin Impact

by Leo Amadeus Ruiz

Hi there, Lei here! While my good friend @theclassypoor is more on travel, food, and photography, I’m the tech and gaming guy in our circle. I try and play new pc and mobile games every now and then, but I’m currently active in Genshin Impact and Mobile Legends. I also do a bit of Valorant, World War Z, and Left 4 Dead.

Once in a while, with COVID out of the picture, I tag along on some of The Classy Poor’s eatsplorations.  But today, I’ve been invited to take you to Teyvat, the fictional world of Genshin Impact.

Where to buy Ready to Cook Dishes

I don’t usually cook but I can make pasta dishes, some easy to prepare comfort food and no-bake desserts. So since I do not have an eye for what’s meat is perfect, what spices to use and what meat cuts should be used for specific dishes, I sometimes rely on restaurants or shops that offer ready to cook dishes. Sharing three of my favorite shops:

Don’t be Afraid

Don’t be afraid of starting over, of taking your time with someone new. Don’t be afraid of change. Of letting go of the people who keep doing you wrong. Those who keep on giving you stress and who keep on causing depression. Who bring more darkness than light. Who always doubt you. Who always have something bad to say. We don’t need that type of shit in our life.

When truth finally hits you…

When we say that we know someone well, how much do we really know about that person? Knowing someone can be a blessing, but it can also be a curse at times.

Relationships that start without any foretelling signs or motives are always right. However, every person will eventually encounter a “defining” moment and these moments will make them reveal their true colors.

Updated: Online Grocery

Laziness, that is how I discovered Metromart online grocery delivery. Saturday noon, I am binge-watching my favorite Korean Drama, I suddenly craved for Cheese Bokki, the Korean fever has really gotten into me.  Though SM Aura is just 30 mins away from home, I am hesitant to go out, the reasons: too lazy to get up and change clothes, the usual traffic, the expense for GRAB fare, long lines at the Supermarket, have to carry heavy bags alone.

Nonna’s Pasta and Pizzeria

When eating out, It’s more likely that I’ll be choosing warm, colorful and Tuscan inspired over other dead, cold and plain-looking restaurants. So here I am at Nonna’s Pasta and Pizzeria in Solenad, Nuvali.

Nonna is an Italian word for grandmother. Imagine your grandmother serving different dishes and stuffing you with big servings of pasta and pizza. Nonna’s is the hip version of Mama Lou’s. Mama Lou is more like an old school Italian restaurant but both serve gastronomic Italian food. Nonna’s have 3 branches: Nuvali, Ortigas, and Alabang.

Le Petit Souffle

Le Petit Soufflé is a restaurant in Century City Mall that offers French/Japanese fusion comfort food. I’ve always been attracted to cafes with a laidback and garden theme.  Luckily, this is not just an “instagrammable restaurant”, their food is twice as good as the drool-worthy Instagram photos.

Yeah, It Still Hurts!

It only takes a few seconds to hurt the people you love and it can take years to heal. If only the word “sorry” can heal the pain. If only it can erase all the bad memories. If only it can undo everything.
