Craving for onion rings

I never have cravings.

Yes, there are times when I feel like eating a specific cuisine (say, Japanese, the cuisine I most automatically look for when eating out) but I’ve never really had cravings, in the strictest sense.

You can ask anyone in my office. Every day when lunch time comes and they ask where I want to eat, I just shrug and say, “Anywhere.” If nobody speaks up, then maybe I’ll step up and suggest a place just to get us going.

But today… Today was different.

I craved Burger King’s onion rings.

I was plurking as usual when Aileen mentioned that she was in Burger King. Suddenly, I wanted to eat lunch at Burger King, too. Suddenly, I wanted BK’s onion rings. And, suddenly, I was excited to go to lunch!

Until my officemates reminded me that there was no Burger King anywhere nearby.

HUWHAT?! IS NOES!!! But I wanted onion ringsssss!!!

My officemates suggested that I go to Brothers Burger instead so I could get my onion rings. BUT NOES! Brothers is a good burger place and all, but today I wanted Burger King onion rings. 😦

I was so disappointed. We went to the cafeteria to eat, and I didn’t have an appetite. My food would’ve been okay, I suppose, if only I wasn’t wishing that it was something else.

I went back to work, but I decided: I was going to have my onion rings. I never eat dinner out before going home (unless that dinner was to be followed by a movie with friends or something) but this time, I was going to eat out, and I was going to get my onion rings!

And I did. All peoples of the world rejoice!!!

Last week, I was supposed to get a free meal here in Burger King (and then I was supposed to blog about it) but I never ordered my free meal. I did blog about staying in Burger King, though, but since I didn’t eat anything, I had mothing to say about the food.

I think the food part comes now. Haha!

I was happy with my Whopper Jr. (which had just the right amount of yummy veggies in it) and I had my Coke, and I had my onion rings!!

On a side note, the single-serve softdrink cup is now HUGE! I mean, okay, it’s not phenomenally humongous, but, compared to the usual Filipino size of drinks, it’s pretty big. And okay, maybe they’ve been like that for a while now, but it’s been more than two years since I last ate at Burger King, and at that time their single serve drink cups were the itty bitty ones.

I love the cellphone recharging station here in Trinoma, by the way. As opposed to the usual thingamajig attached to the wall, and with cords hanging out of it, the recharging station here looked pretty nice. It’s wood and stuff. I can’t take a photo now, but I’ll come back someday to do just that.

Oh, and the “friendly Burger King crew” was definitely friendly. They rock.

Ahhhh. So, yes. Here I am at Burger King, blogging happily. I’ll finish my dinner and then go home, finally satisfied that I had my ONION RINGSSSSZZZ!!!

Sleep, Rain, and Spying at Burger King

Burger King has (or had, depending on when you’re reading this) a thing for bloggers from August 1-7, 2008. All we had to do was sign up, and if we got into the 50 slots, we can bring 3 friends and eat for free at a Burger King branch of our choice. I signed up to go to SM North EDSA, and one of my best friends, Mi, signed up at the Trinoma branch. Ehe. Funny, both of us got into the 50 bloggers list. Now the dillema was: which branch to go to? So we said, “Yeah, we’ll see when the day comes.” Continue reading
