Hello lovelies! It's the last day of August already can you believe it? How was your weekend? Mine was loaded with activities which made it pretty exhausting, but FUN nonetheless. :)
Friday night: bachelorette party! sorry, no pics from that right now ;)
Saturday: I had Mandarin classes, did some shopping with a friend then attended a kiddie party.
Sunday, I shopped the whole afternoon with Lurvey (and his fam) then had dinner at Cafe Juanita, an eclectically designed local restaurant with really good food.
pork strips and green finger chilies cooked in coconut milk. It is very spicy and creamy.
Filipino version of Ratatouille, fresh herbs with cubed tomatoes, grilled eggplant and anchovies, very very good! A must try.
Pork blood stew with crunchy pork rinds, this was mediocre imo, my aunt can cook a better version of this.
Deep fried Lapu-Lapu with Tamarind Sauce
again, a mediocre dish imo, plus the fish didn't taste very fresh. the sauce was good though.
Monday... Lurvey and I got sick from eating super sweet sticky toffee pudding! My head felt so heavy, I stayed in bed and slept all day while Lurvey kept on working. Poor thing. :(
Tuesday... fever is gone, but TONSILLITIS is here to stay! (same with Lurvey) aaargh! i will NOT eat too much sweet dessert anymore!
the culprit: Cafe Juanita's Sticky Toffee Pudding
it tasted good because it was served warm and soft plus the ice cream complemented the sweetness of the pudding really well. It was like a party in my mouth. lol.
But now i'm facing the consequence of my 'sweeth tooth' actions... Boy, I'm so looking forward to getting better! I cant even drink water easily! I feel pain every time I swallow, can you imagine if i eat real food? There's a reason why we don't have a hearty appetite when were sick.
Stay healthy and safe!
