#ThrowbackThursdays: Dessert > Flowers

One of the things I appreciated about a guy I dated was how he immediately picked up on my preference for dessert. On the first time he visited my place, he brought a small bonquet of flowers and a slice of cake. On the succeeding times, however, he only brought a single-stemmed rose, but more dessert. When I asked why, his response: "On the first time, you set aside the flowers and ate all the cake. I had to remind you to put them in a vase."

#ThrowbackThursdays: Eats more fun with Siopitohs

One afternoon during our university days, my high school friends (our group was called Siopitohs) and I decided to get together for a trip to a restaurant in Manila's Chinatown. That was a busy part of the city and had more than its fair share of pick pockets, so I SMSed instructions to look simple. Lo and behold, we ALL came in white shirts and jeans.

#ThrowbackThursdays: Pasta dinner date

One of the dates I fondly remember was one that I had on Chinese Valentines day when my friend invited me for dinner at his place.

We both arrived very late (I speed-walked to his flat and my flushed sweaty face managed a breathless 'hi.' when I entered the kitchen, where he hurriedly unloaded grocery bags). He did everything in speed and I tried to make myself useful by throwing away the discards, until he instructed me to stop touching stuff and sit down.

Commitment is an effort

This is not a dedicated food post but an update of what I've been up to the past twenty days of this month. Living healthy has been a #fail... First up, I went on a family trip to Singapore, where all hell broke loose because I ate everything I have missed the past three years. One concrete thing that came out of it was I joined the Katong Food Trail and met amazing people. =)
