Trinoma and Heaven and Eggs

It was Loraine‘s birthday yesterday, and the amigas and I decided to celebrate it in the Trinoma.

Since it was only my second time there and I got there early, I decided to walk the whole mall. Yes, I walked all four floors for an hour just to see what shops they’ve got now. See, my first Trinoma experience was sort of traumatic, and that was partly why I haven’t stepped foot in that place for a while. (That, and I haven’t actually had time to go malling, anyway.)

Well, guess what: I like Trinoma now.But I think it’s really more convenient for me to go to SM, and I have the stores there pegged, so I prefer that over the newer mall, for now.

The only store I actually entered to look around was (of course) National Bookstore and Fully Booked. I was looking for several Meg Cabot books… Unfortunately the ones available were the Princess Diaries series. -sigh- Sucks. I’ve wanted to get my hands on the Mediator books for ages. Ah, well. The search continues.

When I got back to the first floor, I got me a haircut at David’s Salon, too. (I should’ve stopped to get a Frapp at Starbucks before then. Hmf.)

And then my friends arrived, and we had dinner at Heaven n Eggs. I had Twinings Mint Tea and Lemon juice, and Egg Sardou. It’s Jerusalem artichokes and shrimp in hollandaise, topped with a poached egg and served on a muffin, with mashed potatoes on the side. Yum.

Loraine got the fried chicken, though I think it’s mostly because of the fries.

We also tried Crab Omellete.

Heaven ‘n Eggs has delicious food. The price isn’t…err.. student-friendly, but I think it’s worth it. Beware, though: the service takes a while. But the crew is very polite and courteous and smiling, so I guess that makes up for it.

After eating, we had so much fun chatting (we haven’t seen each other in almost 3 months!) that we didn’t notice that it was 10:30pm already. And I was supposed to be at work at 9.

So I went back to Trinoma, and, it went pretty well. Sure, my past frustrations about the place have not been forgotten, but, taking that into account, I gotta say that Trinoma picked its feet up.

And I guess it’s safe to say that I’ll be coming back.

    I like Trinoma, but I still frequent SM. Primarily because I know where to buy the things I need. But if I’m going to dine out with friends or watch movies, I’ll definitely go to Trinoma. Maybe it’ll change when it’s 100% finished.Have you tried Aveneto, that Italian place right beside Heaven n Eggs? They serve awesome pizza and pasta.I saw a lot of Mediator books at Powerbooks Glorietta last weekend…

    @nina Yup, I’ve been to A’veneto, just not the Trinoma branch. They have a branch very close to our house, and we used to go there often. ^_^ Hm, I must go to Glorietta then. Haha! Thanks! 🙂

    I love Heaven ‘n Eggs! I like breakfast food, that’s why. A lot of people tell me that their prices are a little steep—I didn’t really think so but I guess I can see how it would be considered steep by students.I have been going there a lot after work to watch movies. I’m still a little pissed about the layout (I feel like they designed the mall as a maze! You could get lost in there! Ayala’s just really awful about mall layouts, I don’t understand how they do it or what they could’ve been thinking.), but I like that there’s an Ayala-developed mall in that area. It’s really great for people living north of the city.
