Yup, it is! Well at least I think so. If you saw a flyer in your school’s campus declaring that Mister Donut was recruiting for staff and crew, wouldn’t it mean they were gonna build a Mister Donut outlet somewhere nearby? I have a good feeling about this.
I have always preferred Mister Donuts to Dunkin Donuts. Maybe it’s the fact that there *isn’t* a branch here. You know what they say, the grass is always greener on the other side. But it’s also about the quality of their products. Dunkin Donuts in Zamboanga has the reputation of being kinda sloppy. The donuts themselves vary in sizes, sometimes they’re so small you think that the company’s trying to save on dough. Sometimes, too, they’re moldy. Really! Once Gim and I gave a Bavarian back because there were violet molds on its underside. The management told us that that always happened, it had something to do with their pans. We raised our eyebrows but didn’t press the issue, since they had replaced our food. I wondered to myself whether that meant they didn’t rinse their utensils. Ew. (Still, though, I’m glad they’re not like Chowking, which has the reputation of including cockroaches in their take-outs! Multiple Ews.)
Speaking of food chains, Jollibee is buying Red Ribbon! Did u know Jollibee has a total of 1079 stores? Here’s the breakdown: 508 Jollibee, 310 Chowking, 228 Greenwhich and 33 Delifrance outlets. It also operates 121 stores abroad including 88 Yonghe King stores in China. Wow, huh? In Zamboanga alone it has 5 Jollibee branches (Mindpro, Climaco, City Hall, Camins plus one being constructed in Veterans), 2 Chowking outlets (La Purisima and Climaco) and 2 Greenwich stores (Mindpro and Camins).
Wonder what that means? Do you think Jollibee may also soon be putting up Red Ribbon stores all over Zamboanga? That’s likely, I’ll say! Yipee! I also love cakes. Hmm, Myrna’s might soon be getting some competition!
Brrr, it is cold. It’s raining again, but I’m not complaining. It’s nice to snuggle beneath the crook of your lover’s arm during cold weather. Just yesterday, Gim and I couldn’t get enough of one another. He loves to tickle me. I, however, hate being tickled. Someday, I think, I will die of a cardiac arrest induced by Gimmi’s tickling me.
Yesterday, I dissolved into a bout of uncontrollable tears when Gim pinned me to the bed by my arms, threatening to tickle me. He *had* been tickling me all over already for the past 30 minutes but I could still fend him off. It was only when he erased all my chances of defending myself from his attacks that I broke down and cried. (Sometimes, I just can’t help myself!) He let me go at once, of course, and was appropriately apologetic. Oh, but I could see a bit of merriment in those naughty eyes of his. Someday, Gimmi, I will tickle *you* to tears!
Hmm, ’till next time, then. I have to give my darling a phone call.
