Why I Chose to be a Glutton and Suffered Tonight

There was jasmine rice left, plus that Spam.  But then I was craving for chips (fries), so I decided to drop by Northgate Shopping Centre to buy chips ($3.50) and sweetcorn ($2.20).  I was happily eating chips on my way home.  Then I cooked the corn while eating the spam and rice.  I also drank soda from the fridge.  But then I remembered that I still have some Nescafe Mocha ($3.51 per 10 sachets on sale).  But I remembered that I have to drink my milk (choco milk fortified with Calcium).  So I drank 1 glass (300mg Calcium per 250 ml of milk which is around $2.50 per box) but I would need around 500mg of Calcium so I had to drink another glass.  But this time I was already full.  I told myself that I should not drink anything anymore but I don’t want to go down later just to drink that glass of milk.  So out of laziness, I forced myself to drink that milk.  After that–disaster.  I tried lying on my side just to help my stomach to empty some of its contents, but I could not take it anymore.  I threw up.  There goes my 300mg Calcium.

I would not want to waste all these food but I learned that I should not force myself.  I may gain weight easily but my stomach can only take in as much given a short period of time.  So I should plan what I eat and the amount of it.

Gluttony is not an option.  Gluttony is a sin.  Everything should be in moderation.

I really need to plan my meal now. Hmmm…

Dizzy

I was having my cheeseburger meal with fries and a large Coke when I suddenly felt dizzy.  I know deep inside what it is.  I decided to buy apples.  I would have bought veggies but I could not think of any veggie dish to make.  Apples would suffice for now and lessen the sweets.

I should love my body now.

Cooking Adventure

Last week’s encounter with my sis and Mom signalled that I really should learn how to cook.

I know how to cook, I just don’t like opening gas range.  I had traumatic memory of gas exploding and causing the whole building to burn down.  From then on, I’m cautious when it comes to cooking–that and I don’t like the feel of cooking oil splashing on my skin.

Anyway, I can cook fried rice mixed with all kinds of stuff I can eat, also noodles with eggs, and I know how to melt chocolate.  This weekend, I decided to prepare cheesy quesadilla.  I didn’t really look at the recipe–it’s all gut feel and more of my taste memory.  I bought cheddar cheese and cheese spread, bell pepper, mayo, chili, tomato for the salsa, and flour tortilla because it’s the only one available in the grocery.

I have burnt my first flour tortilla, but for the rest, I learned my lesson.  My family ate it and didn’t really hate it.  I guess, they are also into cheese. 🙂

I also tried to cook whole wheat pancake–looking forward to that.  I only learned to cook it on my last cake.  The cakes were either deformed, the first one was burnt, the others have middle part uncooked.  I mixed in some dark chocolate.  I love it.  I didn’t have to put on syrup anymore.

Great Find

I saw this small dining place at RCBC Tower. The place looks cozy and great to study here or just simply talk.

The food is also affordable. I ordered personal size pizza, tuna carbonara, iced tea included for only Php 130.

They also have an array of gelato and its choco ice cream looks enticing. It is relatively expensive considering that a scoop is worth Php 65, more expensive than the pizza.

Good food, affordable price, great ambiance, this is one great place to be.

I would recommend this to you.

Inipit Cake at Eurobake

One of the perks of going to other places is the chance to try out their specialties. Last saturday we went to Malolos, Bulacan fir the barangay health worker seminar and on our way home we stopped by Eurobake wgere the original inipit cake is sold.

Inipit is made of of two slices of chiffon cake sandwiching milk and egg filling.

It tastes just right–not too sweet and not to tasty.  But when it comes to inipit, I prefer the tasty kind being sold in other local bakeshops.

They have other nice products such as the humongous ensaymada.

Magnify

The other day, I asked God to fix my finances.  I said it’s about time I gave it to Him. Then something happened causing me to give the little that I have to Him (not really to Him but it’s for a good cause).  I should trust Him.  This is an invitation from Him to trust Him and to see His economy and how different His economy with the earth’s economy.

Anyway, there’s a hype here in the Philippines with the Magnum ice cream.  I’ve eaten this before when I went to SG.  But not the choco-covered ice cream.  When I went this evening to Mini-stop, one of the convenience store here, I saw Magnum ice cream and I bought two, just in case one is not enough.

The ice cream is creamy and the belgian chocolate lives up to its name. Yum!  I am more likely to have more of this 🙂

New year’s pics. Maybe I’m 150 lbs in this pic. But look at all these food. So yummy and so carbohydrate 🙂

We did not cook that much food but there were still a lot to give to my relatives who visited us on new year.

Glad the holiday is over. Looking forward to summer. Oh btw, I’m weighing less than 150 lbs now. 🙂
