I’m still not out of my blue funk; in fact, I’m feeling more than a little under the weather. Throw in some incredibly tight deadlines, and I’m practically chained to my desk.
Which is why I’m grateful for the Fasta Pasta and oriental box lunches over at C-mart on the ground floor of the Pacific Star Building. A mere PhP 49.00 gets you a healthy helping of pasta (the Creamy Pesto shown above is good) or a good meal of siu mai and pan-fried Chinese noodles or lemon chicken and veggie fried rice. (Oh, and the lemon chicken, while not crunchy the way North Park makes it, is delightfully tart, sweet, and savory all at once.) Pop into a microwave, nuke for a minute, and you have a satisfying lunch.
Oh, and throw in an additional P 38.00, you can get a Fanta Cherry or a much-missed Cherry Coke to slake your thirst. At a little less than P 100.00, it’s definitely a good lunch deal for a desk-bound corporate minion.
Now, about those deadlines…
