The Month of the Heart of Winter

the new leaf of January is my Month!

Daddy’s Day at MAFBEX

Leoncio and I didn’t plan any for Father’s Day, and like our ordinary Sundays we stayed late in bed. Bet it wouldn’t be the same if Bea was around 🙂  , nevertheless, I was forced to get up before the clock hits 9am. I want to surprise the husband a little, so, I head straight in the kitchen. He’s like that, always craving a hearty breakfast when both of us are just at home. In no time at all, I came up with our favorite mixed green with grapes and apple slices and Italian spaghetti.

Healthy and delicious at the same time! 😛

Right after brunch, I felt sleepy again but shed the idea of lounging the whole day thinking that we need to drive at the supermarket to get our weekly supply of bread and veggies. Other than what we thought would just be an ordinary trip at the supermarket, we found ourselves driving to World Trade Center to pig-out. Yes, we had a slight change of schedule after eyeing the billboards at Makati-Mandaluyong bridge.

MAFBEX 2012 was still ongoing, who could resist the fact that it’s the biggest and most awaited food event of the year? Most likely not us!

Entrance Fee is P100.

Its theme “Back to Basics” was understandably fit for me.

And despite the certainty that I no longer crave for pizza these days I was drawn to Shakey’s On Wheels and even want one in the future. Nangangarap lang po. 😀

Aside from Shakey’s, Cheese Steak Shop also had their own mobile. Just not so sure if the same was functional.

World Trade Center was jam-packed of food distributor here and there and visitors were equally countless.

The highlight of MAFBEX,

Delicacies all over the world, I  was hooked to Taiwan Sausage way back I cannot remember and I was happy to saw plentiful of it last Sunday. Chicken for me please! I was nagging the husband that we should buy a pack of it to take home but he was so firm not to give in to my begging. (No, he wasn’t depriving me because of anything else, he was just helping me to eat healthy even that means saying no to most of my cravings. 🙂 )

He allowed me to have a stick only and I was satisfied. 😀

Until the next event! And still a Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful Dads I know! 😛
