Frailty


I wanted to touch her
but I was afraid to hold her
frightened that every bone in her body would break
in the shadows
tracing the silhouette of her delicate, slender neck
fragile and vulnerable
what would it mean to her
if I take a chance

Buffalo Wild Wings

I was so enthralled to see this giant poster about a new wing joint. We don't know the exact location so G and I headed over the nearest concierge to ask about its exact location. Too bad, the store has not opened yet. Well, that was two weeks ago and boy was it worth the wait.


The store opened last July 14 at Glorietta 1, the second in fact with the first branch at Estancia Mall, Capitol Commons.



It was a lazy Saturday weekend, G and I haven't had our lunch yet. You could just imagine how my tummy was grumbling the whole time. I was thinking out loud deciding which is better - burgers or wings. If G would have it, he'd choose chicken wings over burgers in a heartbeat. 

What are we having?



And so we grabbed our grub. The usual dirty rice, wings (it's barbeque for G and garlic parmesan for me) and some sides.





There was nothing special with their barbeque sauce. I mean, you could easily find the same taste in other chicken wing restos. However, their garlic parmesan was a revelation. It's not your typical sweet to the palate goodness, but it has some kick in it. Their wings come with free celery or carrot sticks and garlic ranch dip, too!


Here's something to guide you through their sauces and seasonings.


As if we're done, we had fries to break the flavor.
Don't be deceived by how pale the fries look, these are actually savory. Good as is, better with mayo-ketchup.



Ordering flatbread was G's idea. 

Here's their Buffalo Chicken Flatbread = oven-baked pizza crust with a mix of spicy garlic sauce, bleu cheese, chicken, celery bits and mozzarella-provolone cheese blend.

I was not that much of a fan; too salty for my taste.



With the many television sets (mostly basketball, football games, UFC, etc...) around the store, I am convinced that they are trying to cater to sports fanatics. Deploying XBOX consoles for the kids (and the kids at heart) won't hurt.





Though a bit pricey, they make up for it through their servings.




At the end of the day, let's toast to good food and good company.

Sage's Fave Five: The Fray

It's one of those days that you simply want to curl up, drink hot coffee and listen to some "The Fray" songs.

Here are five of my favorite "The Fray" songs:


5. You Found Me

Where were you
When everything was falling apart?
All my days
Were spent by the telephone
That never rang
And all I needed was a call
That never came

Losing her
The only one who's ever known
Who I am
Who I'm not, who I wanna be
No way to know
How long she will be next to me

Lyin' on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait?
Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, you found me


4. Look After You

If I don't say this now I will surely break
As I'm leaving the one I want to take
Forget the urgency but hurry up and wait
My heart has started to separate


3. How to Save a Life

Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life


2. Never Say Never

Picture, you're the queen of everything
As far as the eye can see
Under your command
I will be your guardian
When all is crumbling
I steady your hand

You can never say never
While we don't know when
Time, time, time again
Younger now than we were before

Don't let me go


1. Over my Head (Cable Car)

I never knew that everything was falling through
That everyone I knew was waiting on a cue
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth
But that's how it's got to be
It's coming down to nothing more than apathy
I'd rather run the other way than stay and see
The smoke and who's still standing when it clears

And suddenly I become a part of your past
I'm becoming the part that don't last
I'm losing you and it's effortless
Without a sound we lose sight of the ground
In the throw around
Never thought that you wanted to bring it down
I won't let it go down till we torch it ourselves
