Of cakes, breads, and cafes: Icings

So my friends and I decided to have a night out after a couple of months. The initial plan was to dine at Bannaple (Market! Market!), because it was one of our favorite restaurants. Unfortunately, Bannaple had its entrance full with customers in queues. So we decided to look for other alternatives, and luckily just a stone's throw away from the crowded resto was Icings.

We were hesitant to go inside at first (it was our first time there). I mean, the place was posh looking. It was small but spacious and the ambiance was just relaxing. We were greeted by their very hospitable staff and after being seated were given the restaurant's menu. Being the timawas that we were, we scanned through their creatively-pieced-together menu for quite a long time. After mentally calculating our orders so that we will not end up washing their dishes we ordered the following:

100 Tomato Pasta
Classic Caesar Salad
A slice of Choco Caramel Cake

They have a wide selection of unique and hearty pastas one of which we tried. 100 Tomato Pasta is delicious, healthy, and tangy. Prepare your taste buds for one gastronomic journey! My friend jokingly insisted that we count the tomatoes in the meal and see if the number reaches to 100 (corny).

We also had a helping of their Classic Caesar Salad. For me, the serving is enough for three individuals or 2 hungry foodies, no make that one! Drizzled with crunchy bacon strips and croutons and doused generously with Caesar dressing, you’re good to go!

We were introduced to a slice of their Choco Caramel cake. 

Just look at that! How can someone resist taking a bite from that tempting slice of chocolate goodness? It’s to die for, I mean not in a literal sense but you know what I mean. It’s moist, mouthwatering, not that sweet, heavenly and satisfyingly good!

We are definitely going back next time to try their bestsellers!

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
