The Month of the Heart of Winter

the new leaf of January is my Month!

weekend treats

The recent weekend was laid-back as there’s no activity in line and for a mall rat (yes, I still am) I can’t let the weekend pass by not visiting one. Actually, I could always make the supermarket visit a good excuse to go out on Sunday, hehehe. And because most of the favorite shops at Ayala Center were on sale I can’t help but walk in and check how the prices are dropping. I can still wait for the 70% mark down which is happening soon. 🙂

Apart from window shopping, I also look forward to dining out on weekend; I consider it a reward in my case even that means eating fast-food food only. Simple treat these days need not to be hotel buffets all the time, besides the husband is so strict when it comes to my diet now.

So to cut it short, I ate to my heart’s content yesterday.

Had not one but two orders of Takoyaki balls from SM food stalls. I know it doesn’t taste any authentic but I still prefer this mixture because it doesn’t leave any after taste at all.

Because Haagen-Dazs would be shutting down operations in the Philippines, their delectable ice creams where put on sale. I grab a personal tub, thorn between the Belgian Chocolate and Crème Brulee but the latter won. 🙂

All creamy indulgence, two of my favorite dessert comes into one.

I wanted pasta dish for dinner yesterday, those from Café France to be exact but there’s no store nearby our way. I was almost considering Yellow Cab’s Chicken Alfredo Pasta until this newly opened Army Navy in Jupiter St. caught my attention. In fact I am not so certain if this is a new store or I just did not notice it in the past. Anyway, I’m glad they opened one at this site.

Since they don’t have pasta on their menu I settled for my much loved Cheese Quesadilla –folded tortilla filled with cheese, toasted and served with salsa.

While the husband got himself a Burger –classic, single, quarter-pound, beef patty. He loves it very much and even compared it to Bea’s second favorite beef burger. With this, I see us frequenting the place from now on. 😀

We add up an order of Onion Rings, their version is thinner and yes it’s crispy.

I promise to get myself a Chicken Burrito next time. 😛

I know weekend cannot always be like this; once in a while a breather is just right to break up the longing to cheat during the weekdays.
