Di’Marks Pizzeria…


Di’Marks Pizzeria

Pursuing one of my passion to write through blogging is something I do unequivocally.

Looking at my blog site from outside the box, I could not classify it in one specific direction if its a travel blog or a food blog or a fashion blog not even a lifestyle blog. I am still in the process of classifying this page of mine. Carefully taking each step with decisiveness to literally gather likes and hits and views for my page. Their like medals and trophies to hopeful bloggers like me. Not caring for the annual awards but each increase on the page views definitely gives us a different kind of bliss. Besides I created this as portal of this book I am wanting to publish for the longest time. And the fact that I was able to share my everyday experiences to people who might fond them interesting.

However, just recently, binging just like everyone especially this past Christmas Holiday, I see myself blogging more on food.

There’s this one place I do not wanna miss in my “To blog list”, if you will ask, there’s more than 50 drafts that I have yet to post if I have the luxury of time like posting 3 different blogs while on vacation which includes a Gratitude blog for the year that was.

My first blog for this year is about this restaurant that is very familiar to me back in college days. Being one of the oldest pizza parlor in the Philippines. I have spent almost 10 years working in Makati and seen and tried a lot of pizza parlors from said CBD (Commercial Business District).

Di’Marks Pizzeria…

Though this one is especially special as it reminds me of my younger years. Literally, it brought me back my old carefree self. College days is one of the best years of my entire life. As Di’Marks has a branch in Taft, Manila during that time. The place was just a stone thrown away from our school. It saddened me to discover that the place I used to love had been not operating years ago.

history
More than 50 years…I wonder how many pizzas were served then?

Now that my workplace is in Shaw, Mandaluyong City. I discovered that there’s a branch just across our building. I also learned from the attendant that there’s a branch in Alabang. Yey! The Tomas Morato branch is too far from me. It was a relief to know that there’s one near me. Instantly, I dine there with friends, colleagues and at times just by myself.

Neat!

Tonight, sharing the experience with my foodie buddy (I am by the way 10 years ahead her Seniors), she insisted to try Di’Marks. And I gave in to her wish.

I knew she will like their pasta because unlike me who wants it the Filipino version, lightly sweet. She prefers the Italian way which is a bit sour to me.

Look at those cheese!=)

I especially like the way D’Marks provides me with plenty of my favorite: cheese. Toppings of mozzarella, cheddar on the pasta and the Parmesan too. They do not scrimp on them besides aside from the overflowing grated cheese on top of their pasta, they also have a ready dispenser of Parmesan cheese for you to taste as much as you wish.

We had their best seller. Mad scramble pizza.

-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!(--,)
