photohunt - garbage (july 11)

This is a super dooper wackadoodle late post of the photohunt themes. During the time that garbage was the theme, I couldnt come up with a picture to depict it. But today while walking on our way to eat lunch, we saw this computer monitor laying around like a gum wrapper and I just could not resist. Funny thing is that I cant even see a gum wrapper on the streets. How's that for garbage. ;p

kopi roti - kaya toast

At the waiting area of NAIA Terminal I1, near the boarding gates, is a breakfast nook called Kopi Roti. Having read raves about this shop in Awesome Planet's blog and the fact that we still havent had breakfast yet made me want to check it out.

It is a coffee shop with just a few selection of tasty treats, toasts and buns mostly.

What I ordered was the kaya toast. It is toasted bread sliced thinly and served with kaya spread and butter. (Kaya is a famous jam hailing from Singapore and Malaysia made from coconuts.) To me it feels like eating pan de coco only on a crunchier bread. For 55 pesos, you get 2 sandwiches - not bad.

Too bad I didnt have the chance to taste their coffee selection because adding caffeine to my already excited phase that day could kill me :p

To get a glimpse of what their menu looks like and their branches, view this.

turning japanese - prologue

So this stuff that I was talking about that left me "blog dead" for a month and a half was this trip that my husband planned for us two girls (my daughter and me) to visit him for a month.

During the start of the preparation to come here, I thought paperworks were the hardest to fix. It turns out packing stuff to buy and bring was the hardest. I mean to fit the whole house, where I have been most comfortable with my entire life, in two 20-kg suitcases is just so hard - doable - but hard ;p

So iniweyz, this is a pretty major thing for me since I havent been away from home for more than a week or two, and that Baguio (still, with family) and Surigao (at my parents house) are the only places I went - which still feels like home - so there you go.

Let me share in the next days the experiences I'll have during my stay here - from a not so well-travelled momma's standpoint (ignoramus hehehe). I'm sure every bit of experience - be it good or bad - will be worth blogging and reading. Hai!

boyce avenue on avril lavigne's keep holding on

My husband sent me this link from youtube saying that this song fits us perfectly - sweetness! I havent heard of these boys (or boyce? hehehe) yet and just thought that they are just one of those guys who want to make it big in youtube. Apparently, Boyce Avenue did make it big and have been big for quite sometime now. In fact, they had a concert already here at SMX MOA according to my friend. Iniweyz, I just super love these guys and how they do their own interpretation of famous songs - acoustically.

My personal favorites are their version of Oasis' Wonderwall and Goo Goo Dolls' Iris.
