 I had to turn down an invite from my friends last night and subjected myself to twelve hours of sleep. Twelve hours of much needed sleep. I don't know why I was so burnt out I practically raped my bed last night. And yes, I woke up feeling well rested more than ever. So I finally had the time to gather my derpy self and fashion a post that has been sitting in my drafts since last week.

I don't know about you but one of my antidotes when I'm feeling stressed is definitely eating. It's not healthy I know. If I continue being like this, I might end up getting back to my paunchy self, which from the looks of it, is not too far down the road.haha. So anyway, that's about enough litany of introduction. Excuse my over talkative self. 

Now back to the topic of food. Last week, me and my workmates had to drag ourselves miles from the city just to eat. Yes, we go out of our way just for food. Was it worth it? See for yourself.

Photo grabbed from Lantaw's FB account
 Lantaw Floating Native Restaurant is situated at the tail of Cordova, Mactan, Cebu. We had to hire a van to take us there and it was long a ride but the view and the food made up for it. Well, we didn't have our SLR's to camwhore with so we had to rely on the Iphones to do their thing. Aside from the great view, food was up to par and the price for it was not a highway robbery, if you know what I mean.

You can take a peek at the jungle in the kitchen by the counter.
Comfy seats for everyone. I cannot complain.
Menu for Seafood lovers like me.
We arrived at the place while the sun was still up so we had the privilege of choosing our seats. We even had the owner welcome us which is how we learned that the said resto was also an affiliate of Moon Cafe. 

After sundown, the crowd was slowly building up and by the time we left, the place was packed already. I also fancied their waiters who understood our need for taking photos that they gladly and proactively offered to take it for us. 

If you notice, this is just a typical 'garapon' which they recycled and used as glasses.
Ready to eat!
Group picture without me. grrrr.

After realizing I ate that much food, I loathed myself.haha. Although I wanted to stay a little bit longer, we had to leave early for work the next day. I know, I know, it's such a bummer. To answer my question if it was worth it? 99% yes. There's always room for improvement since they're just starting but it's definitely a good start. I will definitely be coming back.

P.S. I apologize for the lack of creativity in my title, I could scarcely think of a good one. My wits bailed on me at the last minute.

Just Desserts

Truth be told, I was never the chocolate cray-cray kind of person. I preferred salty food over anything sweet. A lot of you might be wondering what the hell is wrong with my taste buds but yeah, that's just how I was wired. Nonetheless, I never back down from any challenge when it comes to food. I mean, come on, we only live once, we at least gotta try everything good there is. 

And so we became slaves of our gluttonous appetites and tasted everything sweet until we could taste no more. Talk about dessert buffet. And I said, Challenge accepted! But I failed miserably. After devouring my Lava Cake, my mouth raised up the white flag and shamelessly admitted defeat. Willy Wonka was disappointed.

I hope you get satiated even if all I have for you are these photos. May they serve your taste buds well.

All the dessert you can eat.

So if you happen to be in Cebu and you want a taste of these mouth-watering sweets, do visit Fudge located along A.S. Fortuna. It's not a very grand place and it actually has a relaxing feel to it. And if you have a look at their menu, they also have pastas and what-nots so you'll have a lot of options in case sweet things are not your cup of tea.

Just make sure you visit more prepared than I am 'coz this one's definitely not for the fainthearted. haha. I gotta stop writing like this. It feels weird. Anyhow, Dessert Buffet will run for the whole month of September, and it only happens once a year. As seen on their Facebook caption, you can always have your diet for the rest of the year. So I guess I'll see you there.

P.S. It's been a while since I posted a food entry. I hope this makes up for the long hiatus. :)

P.P.S. Credits to Karen for the photos above. I know I've badgered you enough so thank you.

Keep up with Life

When all else fails, I write.

 No, I'm not necessarily ultra mega sad this time. But to say I'm contented and happy is an overstatement. So I'm neutral. And confused. And lost, maybe?

 I don't know what I'm doing. I don't know where I'm at in my life right now. I don't know what's ahead of me and I'm scared. These are one of those days where I just wanna go home, be with my family and not the trying-to-be-independent-and-living-my-life-to-the-fullest-wanting-to-make-my-decisions kind of me. I know for those who have been faithfully reading my once in a blue moon entries are probably tired and getting nauseous of my endless rants. I am too. But writing has always been my comfort and refuge. It's the only way I cope.

For the past couple of months, I have been living on my own, providing for my own, and deciding on my own. I found it liberating and fun. I would like to believe I was and am still responsible despite the fact I am away from le parents. But I'm not exactly sure that what I'm doing right now is what I wanna do for the next 10 years. I am nowhere near my passion and that voice inside me which fuels my determination is slowly wavering every single day. I have to get a grip of what it's really telling me before it gives up.

I've also been thinking a lot about relationships lately. Now, don't get me wrong on this. I'm not in a hurry to get into one. Believe me, I've waited this long, a few more years won't hurt. I would like to believe I'm getting closer every single day. But sometimes, I just can't help but feel lonely. I have friends who are single too and I have a whole lot of fun being with them when I'm not at work. But it's a totally different thing when you are in a relationship with someone. I know you know what I mean.

I have spent the entire day reflecting and thinking. And even the gloomy weather is cooperating with me. Life really surprises us sometimes and we all have to keep up. We all have to keep up or else we'll get left behind.

A Love Story

I love weddings. I think it's one of the most magical moments in a person's life. If you disagree with me, I hate you. haha. kidding!

When our TM invited us for her wedding, I could not contain my excitement. I had my dress ready days ahead and there was no doubt in my head I was going to the event. But for some reasons, the people I was supposed to go with backed out at the last minute, I wanted to throw a tantrum. Thank heavens, I was able to find company in the most unexpected people and I still had a lot of fun. 

I won't write much though, I'll just let the photos do their thing.

After the wedding. Just 'coz we were late.haha
Yes, I had to be in front. You know that rule.
The newlyweds!

Of course, we had to try the photobooth.

Cute thingummies! They had their names and photos printed. How clever is that?
And the cake!
Mr.  and Mrs. Cupcake
I had to impress someone with that dress. shhhh.haha

Although we had to leave early because of work, it was still one of the most romantic weddings I've been to. I almost cried during the reception, how is that normal?haha. I've never imagined myself being married to someone but if I do, I hope it will be as romantic. 

Congratulations TM Mai and Starky! Best Wishes to you both!
