Yesterday, I said “I am still too fat,” and the people around me replied “No, you’re not. You’re OK.” I don’t know if they are right or if I am overexaggerating. The point is, if I could feel these hideous clumps of adipose around my belly, I may definitely conclude that I have some “work” to do. Believe me, it has been a month full of exercise and a month full of “I want to try that because it looks delicious!” then end up with three slices of perfectly baked “cookies n’ cream with banana” cake! What are the odds of weight loss? None! haha! Continue reading
You are probably wondering how I made a “Masterchef Quality” Breakfast for my father this morning, ei? That’s easy! I mean kids do it all the time when I watch reruns of the show and amazingly at that age they really know how to use knives and the art of garnishing. If they can do it, so can I – that’s what really started my morning (a dream about a cooking show). Haha! Continue reading
It’s funny to think that you wanted to lose weight instantly without compromising your “love-affair” with chips. So, you go out to buy in you local grocery store a bag of “NO + (insert-nutrient-here)” chips. Then you are so happy you bought your favorite JUNK FOOD – with the thought that you will not gain a single pound from a “fat-free” bag of potato chips. Well, you’ll just end up eating a whole bag of manufactured AIR! Tough luck!
This is probably what your subconscious mind is telling you. Haha! Continue reading
Valentine’s Day was so yesterday! Boo! We had a spontaneous “Post Valentine’s Day” celebration at Le Reve Deli and Cafe a few days ago. I was with my friend, Jed, now tagged as my “Food Buddy” since we really enjoy playing the role of “Amateur Food Critics.” The both of us enjoyed each other’s company, despite being “single” and “unattached” as of the moment. Haha! Why not? At least we could talk to one another – not all alone in the corner of our rooms trying to have a conversation with the mirror for it to look like we’re having one!
Food Buddies. Continue reading
Alongside the corner of Quezon-Ledesma St., stands a small coffee place perfect for an afternoon search of inspiration. This “barely noticeable” coffee haven is my favorite spot to get a dose of caffeine and a little extra kick of motivation as well. After a tiring morning, this is in fact a fantastic escape from all the daily life drama
we I seem to have. A comfortable seat near the glass window, overlooking the busy street, will really make you feel as if time (at your own pace) is relatively slowing down. Continue reading
Whether being stuck with a mountain of design jobs or a simple case of “I feel so darn sleepy,” coffee really helps! Need I say more? I’ve been bombarded with “responsibilities” this week and not to mention the earthquake that hit us last Monday! – I am in dire need of caffeine in my system right now just to compensate for everything that is happening. Lol! Continue reading
Being in a different place aside from Iloilo City gives me a huge flash of green light which urges me to tell myself to “Stop all that diet crap and just eat that darn delicious slab of food!” Which occasionally is a rivalry between “gluttony” and “conscience” – in either way, gluttony is fairly my game! Welcome to my Cebu City food adventure – where the term “Food Coma” runs into existence. lol!
Taking a slow-speed shot at the corner of Mango St., Cebu City Look! Green Light! Continue reading
In case you’ll call the police for a possible suicide attempt, please save your effort. lol! I’m not trying to kill myself – duh? What for? I just realized before my stomach began growling (just now) that I had not eaten anything for a day. Seriously! It is amazing that I am still alive and had the energy to blog and tell the world about this! haha! Continue reading
The name is French (obviously because saying it twisted my tongue pretty much haha) which means “The dream coffee from the heart.” Casted under the new building along West Timawa Avenue, Molo, lies a great haven to have your afternoon talk over delicious food and coffee – more like “afternoon fattening escapade.” The ambiance will surely lure you into your typical Paris-coffee-shop setting with all the zebra-striped awning and the facade – beautifully crafted metal furnitures and green plants that add the finishing touches. Continue reading
It is not an ordinary day for me to wake up in the morning and receive a message from a friend (who will be performing in our city) telling you the details of their flight and itinerary of their stay. It is also not ordinary for me to jump on my bed and shout to the top of my lungs sounding like a little school girl squealing that “Sitti is coming!” – that’s just plain exaggeration! haha! The only thing that stayed ordinary was my feeling of happiness.
Great to witness her again – doing what she does best. Bossa Nova filled the Iloilo atmosphere! Yey! Continue reading
