Chocolate Mousse

Stumbling upon a creamy and thick and very chocolaty choco mousse in a quaint restaurant along Quezon Avenue was a taste of heaven. Although I’m staying away from excessive intake of calories, this incredibly decadent, luxurious, sweet and calorific dessert is really hard to resist and so I gave in. It is so pretty and one of the easiest and most satisfying desserts around. One spoonful of this Chocolate Mousse and you will be hooked forever. This dessert will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth. I knew I’ll be late going to office so immediately, when my plate was empty I headed to lavatory to wash my hands. The restroom was clean, neat and I think, hygienic because there’s a hand sanitizer inside. Tissue papers were neatly placed and scented soap was available to use. I’ve noticed that the Hand Dryers is the fastest I have used so far. I liked the small but tidy restroom. I hate dirty restrooms specially when you visit a good restaurant but has dirty restroom somehow it has a connotation of the whole establishment and the food they serve. For me, restrooms are the flag carrier of a restaurant and should be kept clean and hygienic. Don’t expect me to go back to a restaurant with dirty restroom.


My friend in college bought a brand new Fiesta Sedan from Ford. I thought of owning a car too but with the income I'm earning right now it seems impossible. With the income I’m earning right now, I used a car loan calculator to estimate how much time would take for me to afford a Ford Expedition. Well, I was surprised with the result it is doable!

Say Cheese!

A friend of mine whose working in Scotland as a nurse is now travelling around Europe armed with a powerful camera and european travel insurance. She sent me some naughty pictures of european man wearing traditional costume. Sorry I can’t share it with you because this blog is exclusively for foodies only, lol! Anyway, here is a picture of a cheese store she has found while strolling on the streets of Edinburgh. She knew that I love cheese so much. I really do envy her.  Cheese according to Wikipedia is milk-based food product. It consists of proteins and fat from milk, usually the milk of cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. It is produced by coagulation of the milk protein casein. Most cheeses are acidified to a lesser degree by bacteria, which turn milk sugars into lactic acid, and then the addition of rennet completes the curdling. Cheese is valued for its portability, long life, and high content of fat, protein, calcium, and phosphorus. Cheese is more compact and has a longer shelf life than milk. The pleasure of eating cheese does not end in taste but it also beneficial to our health. According to study, eating cheese is good to your heart, help prevent tooth decay, and believe it or not, help loss weight.  It also lower down blood pressure and reduce abdominal fat, blood pressure and blood sugar.


A pile up of work load bid goodbye after the long hours of scrupulous and complicated process. dealing with insensitive people, I admit was unbearable. I am writing this post at 4:19 am  while I am craving for a roasted pork at this unholy hour. Should I do it myself or call a hog roast hire? neither is possible. To long for this kind of foodie is kinda normal for me when I'm mad and or happy so I went to the pantry. Alas!  Lechon Paksiw or Roast suckling pig stew is available on their menu. I was relieved, the Roast suckling pig stew was delish. I still need one more thing, I need to eat the cold and sweet McDonald's hot fudge sundae to complete my satisfaction. McDonald sundae is soothes my emotion, its another comfort food I cant resist every time I'm sad or mad. Comfort Food may have a nostalgic or sentimental appeal, it doesn't need to be expensive or luxurious. Apart from the Lechon Paksiw and Hot fudge sundae, other wistful food I have in mind but are not available this early morning  are; cheese floss from bread talk, ruffles of lays, and almond blizzard from Dairy Queen.

Travel and Money

A visitor and now a follower of my travel blog, Gest to Utopia asked me if how much money did I allocate in traveling to Hong Kong and China last May. It was a travel now pay later trip but I spent a total of 22,000 in Philippine Peso including airfare, accommodation, food, shopping and pocket money. The Currency Exchange from Philippine Peso to Hong Kong Dollar was 5.70. The exchange rate was 3859.65 Hong Kong Dollars or 511.63 US dollars last May. I've already paid it after 2 months of working and saving hard, lol! Now we want to put our trip into higher level, we are  eyeing to visit Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. I'm positive, that it will be happening next year. I have ample of time saving money. We dont want to purchase voucher or package tours. With the help of internet, we will try to DIY (Do it yourself) adventure. I need to be thrifty, I heard that Bangkok is a great place to shop clothes and Singapore to shop for gadgets. I hope I would be able to save a lot of money to buy an iphone 5. By that time iphone 5 is already out in the market, I guess.
