I was on my way to Pepper Lunch at Shang for “something”. I didn’t know what it was because I am, apparently, clueless a lot. I have these gaps in my memory which is probably a sign of aging or obesity or something really serious like that.
When Grace picked me up, I had to ask her where we were going. I knew we were going to Pepper Lunch but I didn’t know which one and why. She told me that we were meeting Chuckie Dreyfus. I shit my pants! No, I didn’t.
Chuckie Dreyfus was a child star who was really big in the 80s.
I had already met Chuckie a decade ago through one of my good friends. Back then, he was this techy/geek guy and that’s all I can remember. Oh, and he was really nice.
Chuckie is now happily married with 3 kids and he produces musical scoring for film and television. He’s lost 40lbs and is planning to get back into the acting game. Good for him. Now, that’s all I can say about that. Oh, and he’s still really nice.
My 80s entertainment consisted of watching Sesame Street and The Facts of Life. Also, listening to Tchaikovsky, Glenn Miller and Lea Salonga. That’s Entertainment? I’m drawing a blank. This is probably how stupid people feel most of the time. It’s uncomfortable.
At Pepper Lunch, Cecile gave us all loot bags with Birch Tree Powdered Milk, Besuto Prawn Crackers, Hapee Toothpaste, Colgate Toothpaste, Likas Papaya Soap and Chuckie Choco Drink. All of these things are associated to Mister Chuckie Dreyfus. I don’t really know how but it was hilarious nonetheless.
I keep saying “Mister Chuckie Dreyfus” because I have a Parokya Ni Edgar song stuck in my head. The lyrics are about how the singer wants to be part of That’s Entertainment and the 2nd stanza goes “Kapag ako’y makapasok, siguradong malalaos. Ang pagkagwapo ni Mr. Chuckie Dreyfus.”

I have decided that if you want to be schushal, you have to go to Pepper Lunch. I had dinner there earlier and I feel so schushal. I mean, seriously, just look at this photo of people who have been there. Can’t you feel the schushality? I feel schushal just looking at this photo. Don’t you? Oh!! You don’t feel the schushalness? That’s because you haven’t been to Pepper Lunch in Powerplant. You should go. It opens today.
Just look at the schushality! Bryanboy is there, Daphne is there, a pretty lady carrying an Aquarelle is there, Rajo Laurel is there and that guy beside Bryanboy is there too (maybe that’s not so schushalin but 4 out of 5 is pretty good). I’m not being mean. I just don’t know him, so I’m not feeling any schushalness. I’m not mean, okay? I’m very sweet. I’m also not being defensive. Really. I mean, I’m not schushal too. I, actually, just joined the Secosana Sisterhood Quezon City Chapter with our Chapter president Poma. I’m not mean. I’m sweet. Shut up!
Okay, so enough of this SCHUSHAL!(can someone make an Urbandictionary.com entry for schushal?) Let’s move on to hotness. There were hot guys in Pepper Lunch tonight. Uhuh.
Check it out!!
They’re pretty hot right? What do you think? Still not convinced that Pepper Lunch is sizzling? Okay, I don’t normally go in THAT direction (mmmhmm!), but I’m trying to prove a hotness point here so…
I’m so totally excited. Pepper Lunch is opening in Powerplant Mall this Friday. Isn’t that the most awesome news ever (better than Mariah’s marriage for sure)? “Pepper Lunch in the Philippines!” Lol. I know it’s kinda silly to get overly excited about food, but seriously, this is me we’re talking about. I love eating. That’s why keeping the poundage off is a serious battle (not news) and it’s so not going to get any easier with this new restaurant opening in Rockwell. Grr.
I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the food and I have to say that it is sooooo mmm mmm good (emphasis on the first “mmm”). I’m not going to mention what I had because, if you’re reading this, I don’t want to influence your decision. I kinda feel like suggesting what to order at a new restaurant is like a Gossip Girl spoiler. It might ruin the excitement of the experience. Yes, it’s an experience because you get to play with your food. There’s some pouring, flipping, tossing, shaking, shimmying, cabbage patching, roger rabbiting, moonwalking, u-turning, g-sliding and “let me see you 1, 2 step” involved. (check the website if you want spoilers. i’m not going to give anymore here. lol)
I will, however, suggest that you have dessert. I love dessert! I love dessert! I love it so much I had to type it twice. That was odd, I know. Anyway, seriously, get the vanilla crepe cake or the molten chocolate cake, or get both! hahaha. A little warning though, I can tell the molten chocolate cake can become addicting. You have to see the chocolate ooze out. You just have to. It’s beautiful. hahaha. Okay. I’m rambling again, I’ll just end this with a few photos to make you hungry ’cause it made me hungry and “hungry loves company”. I made that up. Awesome, huh? (don’t answer that)
