If there is one food or snack that is often readily associated with summer (and summer heat, to be more specific), it’s probably ice cream. But if you’re tired of the usual flavors and they all just seem, well, vanilla to you, then it’s time to look for something different. Something with a zing, perhaps? Something like the chill and spiciness of the Sili Ice Cream, right where its home is in Legazpi City, Albay.
It has been raining real hard the past several days out in my area. Just a couple of nights ago, it rained the whole time, with lots of thunder-rumbling and lightning strikes in between. AND IT’S STILL SUPPOSED TO BE SUMMER WHAT THE. So I suppose that means summer is coming to a close. Before the month of May ends, though, let me make a series of summer-y posts. It’s a throwback of sorts, since it’s about the first time I saw whales for the first time. In their natural habitat.
I was going through my phone and was amazed at how 98% of all the photos I took with it were of food. (I know the reason for that. I haven’t gone out exploring much during the past 3 months, except for eating ‘out’, which explains the kind of ‘variety’ on my phone’s Camera Roll.) So I figured why not blog about these ‘foodventures’? For this round of #foodiefriday, it’s about Half Cup and Gasats RestoCafe and Bakery.
The first time I saw construction work starting on this building right across the street to where I work, my curiosity got piqued when I saw the sign saying “Naruto”. I thought an anime-themed store is going to open real soon, and that it was such a weird location for one.
Here’s the thing about making plans: as much as I acknowledge how important it is and how it can make your life (or, OK, your schedule) marginally better, it gets really frustrating when things fall through and the plan does not happen. You see, today I was supposed to be attending a wedding somewhere warm and shining, but then migraine came attacking, and it’s just great timing~ (hey, that rhymed!). Not cool, M, not cool at all. So while nursing this unwelcome guest, I thought I’d just hit y’all up with this 3rd post about white water rafting.
Summer officially started in the Philippines just a couple of days ago. Or, at least, that’s what has been declared by the country’s weather bureau. But with how the climate and weather have been unpredictable lately (*insert Jaws theme here* climate change, anyone?) that pronouncement is irrelevant. See, when it gets real hot and warm, it’s summer. When it pours in the afternoon, the rainy days are here. But don’t let that burst your bubble. Continue to make fun plans. And go wild. Like how we did on this “time out of time” during our Davao visit not too long ago. Read more
It’s April, everyone! As much as I am willing to be fooled that the first quarter of 2017 has already come and gone, sadly, that “fooling day” has also… well, come and gone. So it’s time to face up to reality. Yes, it’s April. And yes, time flies so darn fast… but hey, that doesn’t mean we can’t fly with it~ But if, at the moment, you’re stuck at home, you can try recalling those past summers, and how you spent them. Like I’m going to do right now, remembering the first time I tried white water rafting. Read more
