The Newest Fastfood Joint

If an idle mind is the devil’s playground, then idle creatives are the devil’s Disneyland.

Last night Leigh and I together with our good friend Pris were having dinner when Pris announced she was going to Tapa King to buy food to bring home to her family. And I wondered out loud: “What if we just put up our own business, a fastfood joint? Pero ang paangalan, Pata King.”

That started it all.

In no time we came up with a menu list for Pata King:
