Once upon a time, my sister and I lived in Quezon City area (circa 2008 – 2011). SM North EDSA was basically where we did everything–shopping, buying our groceries, watching movies and doing other recreational activities (including monkey businesses). Hahaha. It has been a while since I visited the place since we moved to Taguig/Manila area.

When my colleagues invited me to attend #NorthEats: The Food Circuit Launch at SM North EDSA The Block, I was so excited as I will be able to revisit the place (and maybe have some senti moments) and to witness and experience the food launch that I anticipate to be nothing but great.

When I arrived at the venue, I was so hesitant to take some photos because I did not have any high-end cameras like a DSLR. I only had my ever-reliable mobile phone with me. I just told myself to be confident, be nice, be observant of other attendees and copy what they are doing. #Copycat #first-timer #newbie. Suffice to say, I survived the event.

The event started around 02:00pm, hosted by Ms. Sam Oh and they featured 27 Restaurants that offers local and international cuisines. At the ground floor of The Block, they set up tables and booths where each of the restaurants prepared samplers of the food they offer. We were free to try all of these amazing food and even with small bites, by the end of the event, our stomachs were “filled to the brim.”

After all the eating, I decided to explore the area and was quite amazed at how much the place has changed. However, seeing old shops and stores brought back memories and familiar feelings. I realized that this place, with all the new establishments and structures, will always remain special to me. #senti
