Holy Kettle Corn!
Guilt free munchies!!! My sister's boyfriend's mom gave us 2 bags last weekend and my sisters and I just wolfed it down. It's popcorn without the butter, cholesterol and preservatives. It's non-fattening plus its high in fiber! And to top it all off, its soooo good! I'm not sure where they bought it (if anyone knows, please tell me!) but I think it's available in Rustan's.

Roli's Napoleones
This is probably my top 1 favorite Filipino dessert. Napoleones are sugar-glazed pastries with a custard-like filling in the middle. They originate from Bacolod and you'll hardly find any in Manila. Bacolod Chicken Inasal sometimes has some, but sometimes they don't. So you can imagine my glee, when I saw a Roli's Napoleones stall in Megamall last weekend. Bought a box of 6, ate 2 and gave the rest to my sisters. And now, Francine wants more! Haha!

Pretty much how Napoleones looks like. (Picture borrowed from Dindin)


The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
Even if I'm not done reading this book yet, I can already tell you that it is such a must read. I haven't read a book this fun and sad and page-turning since...Da Vinci Code! It's kind of like Catcher in the Rye (which I plan on reading again soon). The main character, Christopher, a 15-year-old autistic is just soooo amusing. I promise, you're going to love this book and want everyone you know to read it.


Located in Karavin Plaza, Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati. The first time I ate in this Italian restaurant was last May with my friend Tin. I frequent the Starbucks beside it and one day while having coffee, my friend and I got curious so we went in and ordered. And we were hooked. So far, everything we've tried is really good. Try the three pasta dish (kind of like a sampler) if its your first time there. And after dessert, order their gelato! Or if you're on a romantic date, check out their wine list which is pretty extensive. Price isn't cheap but its not overly expensive either.

Another place which I have yet to try is Segundo Piso which is just behind Cantinetta. Heard from a friend that it's also as good! Will make a mental note to try it soon and will keep you posted.


These are my current favorites:

Cannonnball by Damien Rice
Collide by Howie Day
Hung Up by Madonna
Blitzkreig Bop by The Ramones
I wanna be Sedated by The Ramones
Caught in the Sun by Course of Nature
Connection by Elastica
Take me out by Franz Ferdinand
What you meant by Franz Ferdinand
We might as well be strangers by Keane
If you could only see by Tonic
Tangerine Speedo by Caviar
Too Darn Hot by Ella Fitzgerald
Shimmer by Fuel

That's all thats coming to mind right now...

WHAT I'M SICK OF: (In random order)

1. Peasant skirts (I've been doing most of my shopping in ukay-ukays because if I go to malls or tiangges, all I see are peasant skirts and peasant tops and I just want to puke!)
2. Those long multi-colored, necklaces.
3. Pinoy Big Brother.
4. The Pinoy Big Brother theme song that was ripped off by Orange and Lemons from The Care.(why are people still supporting orange and lemons after they plagiarized the Care's song, "Chandelier"? Does the Filipino music industry have sanctions for these kind of people?)
5. Bonnie Bailey's "Ever After". (All the stations are playing it. Wasn't this sooo 2 years ago?)
6. Driving. (I swear, if I earned more, I'd get a driver!)
7. Bench Body billboards with Kris Aquino on them. It's just not nice to look at.

One thing I'm excited about is Starbucks' Christmas drinks! The toffee nut latte is back!!! Yahoo! :)

about moi

Loves the beach, wishes she had more time and money to travel, recently got hooked to climbing mountains, reads anything she can get her hands on, frustrated writer, adores her 3-year-old Lhasa Apso, Tashi, constantly needs caffeine, wonders when she'll quit smoking, and will most likely die due to liver complications from drinking too much (if the cigarettes doesn't get to her lungs first). Can't live without accessories especially big, dangling earrings, shoe freak (aren't we all?), sucker for discovering hole-in-the-wall restaurants, will ingest anything spicy, enjoys giving and receiving massages, addicted to Friends, Sex and the City and CSI, goes gaga over kids, dreams of being alone with Jim Morrison and smoking a joint with Bob Marley. Would love to party with Gwen Stefani, shop with Patricia Field, write poetry with Maya Angelou and have Sting, Nelson Mandela, Mark Twain and Bono over for dinner.
