McDonald's Cadburry Mcflurry

Love ko 'to. <3

Tried McDonald's Cadburry Mcflurry with my younger brother after picking him up from school this afternoon and all I could say was: TOO SWEET.

So what's in a Cadburry Mcflurry and what's making it too sweet? 

Cadburry Mcflurry has the same vanilla ice cream as the Oreo Mcflurry, but instead of crushed Oreos, it has pieces of Cadbury Chocettes mixed into it. I love how Mcdonald's is generous on the amount of Cadbury Chocettes they mix into the ice cream and I hope that they won't skimp on it as time goes by. In addition to Chocettes, they also mix too much an amount of hot fudge, and when I say mix, they DON'T just put it as toppings the way they do it on their sundaes. The result: overly sweet Mcflurry with runny consistency. If not for the Chocettes, I would have entirely regretted purchasing my Mcflurry especially now that I am experiencing financial crisis. Hehehe. The small cup costs P55, by the way, while the larger one costs around P75-P80.

PS: I suddenly missed those days during the 90's when McDonald's here in the Philippines also had M&M's and Butterfinger Mcflurries (aside from the Oreo) and I would request the crew to mix them altogether for the price of a single cup and s/he would comply. I felt so special everytime. :)

iPhone Silicone Cassette Case

It gives the illusion that you're listening directly
from a cassette tape. ;)

I first saw this kind of iPhone silicone case on Instagram and found the design sooooo clever and cute, I instantly Googled for stores selling them here in the Philippines. As expected, Ebay and Sulit topped the search results, where most online sellers offered them for a price range of P200-P300 apiece. I excitedly told the BF about the new addition to my wishlist and my plans on purchasing one online soon. Being the practical person that he was, he remarked on its expensiveness and added that he once saw similar designs being sold along some Manila streets. I got excited by the thought, so I visited Quiapo when I finally got the chance and found similar cassette cases sold at P80! I was tempted to purchase one but I didn't want to take the risk of taking my beloved phone out in the open for trial fitting because of fears that it might get snatched, much to the disappointment of the vendor when I lied that I left my phone at home. His reaction suggested something fishy so I said "Thank you" and immediately left, praying that I find a similar cassette case in stores located in safer places. Fast forward to yesterday, I was walking  home from work, and guess what I found -- my dream cassette case waiting for me along the sidewalk! For P120, I know it was a bit pricier than those sold in Quiapo, but at least I still have my phone for it to snuggle. :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Cake from our janitor/tress. So thoughtful! :)
In the office, I am surrounded by people who loves eating so much, we consider each other "eating buddies". During lunch and breakfast, we sit together around our pantry table and eat like a family, laugh together, share  baons, and some chismis too.

Of all occasions, birthdays are our favorite not only because it means lots of free food care of the celebrant, but also because some of us share the same birthmonths, hence the possibility of more than one celebration in a month. But our love for feasting on food doesn't end there. Even during the most mundane days, we chip-in for food for everyone to share, may it be pandesal, isaw, or practically anything edible.

And since today is a Valentine's day, and although it was never declared a working holiday, it still belongs to the category: occasion, we found a reason to celebrate (read: eat).

We did what most couples wholesomely do on Valentine's Day -- we ate together (spaghetti, puto, ref cake, hotdogs, caldereta, laing, rice, etc.), the boys surprised us with roses, we played games, we exchanged gifts, we laughed hard.

And although we weren't able to celebrate the day with our other halves, it was still a great day spent with the people we love, at least platonically.

A rose from my colleague which he stole
from my other colleague's bouquet. Hehe.
Finally, something I can call my own! :D
Watch I received from our exchange gift.    
Happy Valentine's Day! <3

I miss home...

I miss bumming, watching TV all day, free food, my brother, and the free WIFI. ^.^

You Give Me Allergies...

...because me looking for you only means I need to do something I hate doing -- MINUTES OF THE MEETING.
