Last Saturday, my housemates and I trooped once more to the Island to unwind, forget homesickness and kill time as usual. We watched an action-comedy flick, The Other Guys, did little shopping after and filled in our tummies with yummies for dinner.
There was no other choice but to sample T.G.I.F branch in Queensbay Mall, Penang Island; if it fairs with TGIFs Manila, food and service-wise.
On our table…
doc Carlo’s lamb chops…
doc Alvin’s Jack Daniel’s hamburger…
doc Ronnie’s Shrimp Diablo pasta…
and my Saturday plate : Jack Daniel’s Chicken…
Inspite of the fun company being with my colleagues here, still I can’t help but to be homesick as I recall our fond TGIF-family moments at TriNoma and Glorietta branches back home…
With special occasions to celebrate or just ordinary days, dining in TGIF’s is always a hit!
Food was as expected, deliciously standard as what we have in Manila but service back home is more welcoming, warm and nice.
PS : I have a confession to make.
Since we know that TGIF gives freebie to diner who celebrates his/her birthday, I told the wait staff that it was Alvin’s big day that day so she came back with a delightful plate of peanut butter fudge cake. But unlike in Manila branches where Happy Birthday song is usually sang with dance steps and the works, there was none in Penang.
Truth is, my friend’s birthday wasn’t last Saturday but 2 months from now.
I know it’s BAD!
Forgive me, Lord! *liar, liar!*
It was my first time to do it and will try my best not to repeat it again, so help me God! *guilty*
But the cake was really sublime, a perfect ending to a sumptuous weekend dinner.
Good thing, we didn’t have gastroenteritis after that white lie. Don’t do it at home or anywhere else, kids!
BTW, how was your weekend?
