Frankie’s Buffalo Wings
I was once asked by my boss, “What’s the best buffalo wings have you ever tried?”, sadly, I wasn’t able to answer him cos I’m not a “buffalo wings” person. Then I suddenly realized, “Oo nga no? I haven’t eaten buffalo wings for years.” Well, I’m not OA but I think, hindi talaga. Or maybe, whenever there were moments that I eat buffalo wings, kebs lang ako and say, “That’s just a simple fried chicken wings coated with whatevs sauce. Basically, a fried chicken.” Hahaha!
So, the same boss told me, “You should try Frankie’s.” And I was like, okay, Frankie’s. Waddup. See? I’m not a “buffalo wings” person talaga. :D Then last week, our team here in our office decided to eat at Frankie’s. And after all the plans and raves we’ve had, it was just my boss and I who was game that day. :( We need to ask for our other colleagues pa to join with us; To make the plan possible, finally, after all the rejection we’ve got, Jap and Kevin joined us! Yaaaay!
Warning: Buffalo wings craving might happen.
If you are expecting a serene ambience, this place would turn you down. Frankie’s, I think is a restobar cos they also serve alcoholic bev.
Along with the buffalo wings, we ordered french fries and mashed potato. In all fairness with their fries ha, really a potato fries. I mean, not the usual store-bought-frozen fries. Also, the mashed potato complements the buffalo wings. Honestly, I was hesitant to order one cos I thought, “Mashed potato and buffalo wings? Is there such?” Hahahaha! Sorry, I always pair mashed potatoes with steak kasi. So I don’t have an idea that this can be paired with BW pala!! Plus, the mashed potato is so creamy and tastes different from the usual.
Mashed Potato P40. French Fries P80.
HERE COMES THE BUFFALO WINGS!!! (deep-voice)
Honey Mustard (1/2 dozen, P173)
Garlic Parmesan (1/2 dozen, P173)
Frankie’s Classing Buffalo with choice of dip (1 dozen, P320)
We opted to choose blue cheese dip for our classic buffalo and I think that’s the best dip paired with that blend and it did not fail!! The pairing is so good. :)
My first bite!
A disposable plastic gloves is also served before your meals so it won’t be a total mess when you devour on your food. Girl, ‘wag ka nang mag-inarte and insist to use spoon/fork/knife pa, you’ll be messing(missing) a lot! Hahaha yes that fits in. :P Before our meals end, I tried ordering their New York Cheesecake cos based from the reviews I’ve read, it is a must-try. HOWEVER, ubos na lahat ng cheesecake!!! Huhuhu. But, I don’t dwell longer on my bitterness and heartbreak (naks!) because I am satisfied with the buffalo wings already. It is totally worth the long walk. We had at least 20 minute walk to reach Frankie’s. Haggardo Versoza and Tom Jones na kami pagdating! Haha! Frankie’s is located at City Golf Plaza, Ortigas. By the way, we were about to eat 6 pcs of buffalo wings each and I wasn’t able to finish them all. I just ate 5. Hahaha! I gave my last wing to Kevin, Im so stuffed that time!
Among all the buffalo wings I’ve tried, it is the Garlic Parmesan that I liked/loved the most! Though I am a fan of Honey Mustard, the sweetness is over-powering with their version. I always look for the sweet-tangy balance everytime I choose Honey Mustard.
Ugh, I always hate taking group photos by my own. It’s not my angle. Huhuhu. So here’s our group photo with my pudgy face. Yes I know. :(
Aftermath photos ahead.
Trying to be a “buffalo wings” person,
Anonymous asked: Hi alam mo po kung ano exams ng Customer Service Associate sa bpi? :))
Oopps sorry, di ako familiar sa exams for CSA :D
Anonymous asked: Hi! Just saw one of your post regarding to your experienced applying in BPI. I just want to know if how was the exam in BPI? Is it online or written (typical in paper)??? I'm bit nervous since next week will be my first exam and interview to that company.. Hope you have time answer this questions. please give some advice. Thank you so much!
Hi! What position are you applying for? If you are for AITS post, you will be undergoing 2 exams. One is for the initial exam then the other one is the COAB. Both are written. Initial exam is okay. More on aptitude. Then if you passed this as well as their initial interview, you will take their technical exam (COAB). All of their exams are time pressured so answer as quick as you can but make sure it’s 70% right! Haha! Good luck on your application. :)
Sometimes you end up never speaking to someone who meant the world to you again. And that’s okay. You cope and you survive. Don’t let your losses keep you back from new gains.

iamronajoana asked: Hi! Are you still working for BPI? I have schedule for HR interview today for AITS position, which is I didn't really applied in the first place... :( Magkano ba salary ng AITS? I have a kid na kasi.. tsaka medyo malayo samin ang head office.. :( Ok lang ba itanong exact amount?Please.
Hi! Nah. Im not with BPI anymore. Almost a year na din. Hmm, maybe they considered you for AITS because of your college degree? HR will ask you naman if you wanna push through AITS so don’t get bothered that much. :) I cannot disclose to you here the exact amount. You can see it on Pinoyexchange if you browse through the BPI thread. I got the idea from there too! Good luck! ;)
Pamarta Bali Beach Resort, Bataan!
What could be more exciting than having a beach outing with friends? You know, since we all started working and facing the real world, it is so hard for us, GGF, to squeeze in some personal time with each other because of our schedules. Compared in college years, as much as we do not want to see each other, it is inevitable. Char!!! Hahahaha! So last summer, I planned a beach outing with them. Sadly, not all of them agreed. But it was fine and in the end, it was me, Raffy, Jelly, Father and Diana who said Yes!
The challenge was not to exceed with the 2000-budget so I ended up looking for a beach resort which is budget-friendly and near Metro Manila since we were also considering fare and time. We decided not to go overnight na lang. Weeks before the outing date, I was so torn if we will choose Pangasinan or Subic for our beach-fixing. 3 days before the outing, I was bugging Diana where to go but she left me hanging! Hahaha she just agreed to everything I say and suggest and that keeps me more challenged. Huhuhu but it was no biggie. It was me who pushed for this kaya CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. It was a random day in Bataan when my childhoold friend, Kang, visited me and mentioned this beach somewhere in Bataan.
Tada! It’s Pamarta Bali Beach Resort in Bataan! It’s a Balinese-inspired resort when I saw it on facebook. But when we came there, slight lang yung pagka-Balinese nya. :D It was a 4-hour drive from Manila. It’s located in Mariveles, Bataan. We passed through Subic na lang cos I read it’s the most convenient and fastest way to get in there.
Infinity pool x the beach.
I tagged along my sisters, Nicole and Sydney in our way to Mariveles from our home in Bataan!
It was rainy and windy that time and the beach’ wave was roaaaaring! We need to be extra careful lang when we beach around :P
We had our lunch in resort’s resto and the food are so-so.
Beach-pool-beach-pool ‘til we drop!! We dropped by Subic S&R and had some pizza for dinner.
Though we were incomplete, it was still fun! Our sharing was 1500/head —food, resort expenses and travel expenses (toll and gas). Who says you can’t have summer on July? Make it any time of the year for as long as you are happy!!! :) Have fun on your next beach outing. ;)
Anonymous asked: Hi ate! :) marami na ako nakitang nagask sayo about AITS training hehe pwede ba ako dumagdag? hoping kasi ako na magttraining din for this year. Was it hard for you to find another job after your training? thankyou :)
Hi! Sure! Ohhh. It’s quite hard cos at first I didn’t expect na i’ll be eliminated. (naks, eliminated talaga) I was so stressed that time and I felt walang kwenta. But thank God I was able to cope up. :) I found a company after a month.
Anonymous asked: Hi I want to ask what happened to your AITS training? :) I heard there's a 3yrs bond after the training..
Hello! Sad but I didn’t make it til the end. Every module has a filtering of candidates for AITS kasi. Though there is a 3 year bond, if you don’t meet the required grades, then they have the privilege to force-resign you. Kaya I always advise to study very well and hard! :)
