So, this wasn’t my original idea for today’s entry, but I’m feeling too jetlagged to write the article I had in mind and give it the respect it deserves.
Yes, I’m jetlagged for the first time since… 2019…? And not for the reasons I had back then, which were usually something work-related or a full-fledged vacation – likely involving booze.
Seriously though, after the lengthy, whirlwind, emotional rollercoaster trip that was our visit to long-lost family halfway around the world, I’m feeling the exhaustion (of the good kind). However, today isn’t about our SoCal adventure… I want to keep it short and light (so I could get back to that kdrama I’m marathoning, lol) and talk about the drinks I’m daydreaming about.
Why daydreaming? Well, we’re still stuck in the hotel for our Philippine government mandated 5-day quarantine, with another day to get the results of our COVID test… And unfortunately, the hotel’s food and drink options are severely limited. Much as I’d like to ring up a few of my supplier friends (yes, I use “ring up,” I can’t imagine myself saying “hit up”) to get something delivered, there’s a PHP10,000 fine and a restart of the 5-day quarantine if I did that.
So after making a mental note on all the things I want to eat once we get out of here – mostly Korean and Japanese food because a) With nothing better to do I’m doing Japanese and Korean Netflix marathons, and b) Apparently some parts of the US don’t import meats that they could replicate for economic and health purposes, so we are dying for proper wagyu and Korean beef – one of my friends Nina said that they were also waiting for my mental notes on what I’d like to drink.
So, here’s a list of the drinks I’d like to have the moment we get out of here:
