Pizza Warehouse – New York Style (Affordable) Pizza! <3


PIZZA WAREHOUSE 
It was 2009 when my office in Makati had to be transferred to our newly erected office building in Paranaque. I headed Admin. Dept at that time and was personally instructed by my boss to purchase pantry tables from SNR. I just replied “Yes Sir!” obediently. =) Without him seeing a big question mark on my face. Because at the back of my mind I haven’t heard of it yet and  I honestly don’t even know what and where SNR is?
After that meeting, I immediately asked my colleagues about SNR and they said in chorus and were kidding me that it’s a huge warehouse of imported stuff (food and non food), that it is where our boss does his grocery and only the “can affords” or expats or foreigners can afford shopping at SNR. Unless you get your groceries from Rustans or specific Specialty shops scattered inside a mall. One of us even said in the vernacular “Supermarket ng mayayaman sis!” (Supermarket of the rich!) And we all ended up giggling!
I paid visit the one in Alabang right away out of mere curiosity and excitement (there are other branches I heard). It reminded me of PX goods in Angeles. Pampanga. True enough, it was really big. Even the carts are bigger than the usual that I use in different supermarkets. Like an authentic American burger which they normally call “American size” which normally we’re having difficulty to consume. Since then aside from the items required by my boss, I shop there personally not because I am rich. I am not! The impression it created at that time is (like I did an RCA (root cause analysis), it is not that popular at that time.

Nowadays, anyone can avail of the membership card for a minimum fee. Some years have passed (5 yrs to be exact) they haven’t made an increase yet.I fell in love with SNR because I get best buys of huge bottles of Canola oils and ketsups that normally lasts a month on a regular consumption. We are just 4 at home at that time. My parents, my son and me. Once I am so happy that I’ve bought some Martha Stewart items at a good price because they were on sale. They will send you an email for some announcements so you’d get to take advantage and get a better deal.

I also like that after shopping, the warehouse is huge right? There is quick service restaurant inside that will fill up your tummy at a not so high price. I am referring to their New York style pizza. The last one we had is from Alabang too at Brooklyn Pizza. The variants are not that limited there’s all cheese, there’s one everything on it, there’s seafood, there’s all pepperoni (my favorite) and the bottomless drink that comes with it. My son, a pizza lover too who happens to love pickles, enjoyed the pickle dispenser so much. He would even ask me if he can bring home pickles since he usually bought pizza to bring home. He and his BFF can’t do away without getting Ben and Jerry’s. Now it’s Blue Bunny. Still, they would scream from ice scream like kids.

My apologies if this is about another pizza parlor accidentally discovered by me and my foodie buddy and not about SNR Membership Shopping. As some weeks ago. While shopping in Glorietta, we spotted a pizza parlor where taste and variants are very similar to that quick service restaurant inside SNR. That if you are not a member, Pizza Warehouse is the best option for New York style pizza. You can enjoy similar typical SNR pizza and they even accommodate home deliveries too. With very friendly (and helpful) staff.During our first visit. We had these:

1
My pepperoni…
3
Jen’s shrimp and garlic…
4
Only a hundred and nine pesos each…=)
2
These are what I am missing when I am at SNR.

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
