Still In Love

Tell me if you do not love chocolates. Then you can just give them all to me.

They will tell you that someone is in love with you if you receive chocolates all of a sudden in the office. Those days are gone.

I may or may not be in love but I could say that I still love chocolates. I can give myself a present from time to time by buying for myself a chocolate. I only cannot crack the nuts for now but I do still love to eat chocolates.

There are more items in the chocolates stand than I could ever eat. I may not be able to afford them all but I am still in love with them. Just in case you are throwing away your chocolates you may give them all to me. As of now I could say that I am still in love.

East Meets West with Bagoong

Vegetable curry and bagoong rice

Whenever I hear of European products, I thought of pasta and sauces. I am not a lover of those Italian foods either as carbonara and the like. When I watched Chef Luigi Muhlach demonstrated Marks and Spencer products last Sunday, I was delighted that the east has to meet the west with bagoong.

Chef Luigi Muhlach cooked vegetable curry and bagoong rice. This is how he did it:


Marks and Spencer Vegetable Curry
1 cup plain rice
2 tsp cooked bagoong
green mangoes (sliced)
1 egg (scrambled)


1. In a hot pan drizzle oil, add onions, garlic, bagoong and rice.
2. Saute and top with green mangoes and scrambled eggs.

And that's it!

Then pair it with Marks and Spencer wines. Thanks to Miss Chie Gatchalian for the insights.

Drink to your heart's content! Wines promote a good heart condition.

Children will of course like to eat candies that look like pigs, pig tails, noses and the like. Here are some of them, all from Marks and Spencer.
