Bottomless Pits: A Day of Endless Eating

I'm not a very fit person. I like to eat and I will eat anything and everything if I want to. I exercise only so I have an excuse to indulge in all my favorite food. That said, I don't think I can ever go on a diet. O:

So when my friends Koko, Mimi, and Stephie said they were heading to Yummy Eats, I invited myself. Haha! It was going to be a day filled with good food and who in their right mind would pass up the opportunity? Definitely not me.

Personally, if I could, I'd have both!

Mochiko mochi with Azuki and Sesame Seed ice cream — they took our photo with their cute Instax and posted it on a wall. Azuki is ♥!

Loved Simply Pie!'s setup. (:

There were so many food stalls, we didn't know what to try first. But this guy just stood in our way and practically shoved a spoon of ice cream into our mouths. But I'm glad he did because Holly's Milk's Salted Caramel ice cream was A+! I was too full to grab myself a cup before heading out, but I'd gladly buy a gallon or two! The tent was divided into Sweet Street and Savory Street. You can probably guess what street we traversed first. Hehehe.

Alessa of Pino by Pipino. I liked their vegan chocolate cookies!

I liked most of what we tried and bought some of Bean & Baker's Orange Vanilla Biscotti to take home. (: I had some with coffee this morning for my second breakfast (haha!). I would've loved to try the Tiramissyou from Risa's Chocolates but it was going to be a long day and I knew for sure it would just melt in the car. I really liked the truffles with Orange and Cerveza Negra.

Koko got us Balamban Liempo and Big Daddy's Chicken (the plum-flavored one was yum-o!) for "lunch" as if all our sampling wasn't enough. I would've gotten myself a bottle of the herbed cream cheese dip (so good!) but I was scared I wouldn't have enough money for the rest of the day. Oh, to be non-rich. Silver lining: won Alfajores from Kusina Teatro in the raffle! Thumbs up all around to the staff of Yummy for a super successful event! Hope there's another one next year! (:

Headed to Heima in LRI Design Plaza so Koko could check out the new collection. The tote I wanted was a bit too pricey for me so I split this button pin set with Mim and Koko. I got the "What's Up?" pin with a bow to match the "What's Up?" pin with a mustache that Mimi gave me. (:

And as if we hadn't had enough food, we checked out The Room Upstairs that was in the same building as Heima. We split the Assorted Bruschetta, Tuyo Pasta, and Vigan Longganisa sandwich among us. They tried the lemon grass iced tea while I had an iced caramel macchiato (so good!).

We loved their salt and pepper box!

We checked out the SuperSale bazaar at Rockwell after and guess what, the eating wasn't over yet! We parked our butts in one of our fave hangouts, Chili's! Split an order of Chicken Crispers (our fave!) with Mim and bottomless chips with cheese and beef.

Surprisingly, I was actually not full at the end of the day! Can you believe it?! But I was really sleepy. Haha! We were kidding that if the world were really to end that day, at least we'd die happy and full. (:


May 8th

Today we celebrate my dad's 57th birthday. My mom would've been 58.

My dad asked me to invite his brothers and sister to lunch today a couple of days ago. But with the fight and my cousin's badminton tournament going on, we ended up celebrating tonight for dinner.

I love it when family comes over. We eat simple, good food. Talk over dessert and wine (well, they drink). Laugh. Eat a bit more. We used to do this every Sunday and now, it only happens when there's a birthday or a holiday.

Tonight, I gave my cousin tickets to the Justin Bieber concert for her birthday. They're not particularly great seats but the look on her face when I handed her that envelope: priceless. Her face frozen with excitement, three words: OH MY GOD, and big tight hug.

Ah, I love my family.
