Spell Saab

Hope you guys are having an awesome new year so far! I’m in Singapore right now celebrating with the Bacarros. It’s Jim’s and my first year as a married couple and we geared up for the “Jim & Saab Rockin’ Family Tour” way ahead of time as you can read from my previous post. Haha! I love family trips!! It’s always a riot.

My favorite family trip has to be when Jim proposed to me in front of my mom and siblings in Ueno Park, Tokyo. We’re going back to Tokyo in February with the Magalonas and the Bunagans (a.k.a. Michael V’s family – he and tita Carol are my parents’ BFFs. Can you say #squadgoals??) and I’m sure it’s gonna be epic. Epic? That term’s so 2012. What’s a hipper term for epic? It’s gonna be as-monumental-as-star-wars-the-force-awakens-opening-day. Okay, maybe not quite but close enough.

You guys know what going to Japan equates to: I AM GONNA PIG OUT ON JAPANESE FOOD. As if I don’t do that enough locally hahaha but hey, iba pa rin sa Japan. I can’t wait. And for that exact reason, I am SUPER excited for #NationalTempuraDay!! Yep. It’s a thing!! Every January 7th, people from different parts of the world feast on this deep-fried seafood as they satisfy their cravings for prawn tempura.
