A Quick Lunch From Jollibee

The weather is unpredictable today, rain is on and off at least here in Cavite. So instead of walking to the canteen, we decided to order from Jollibee.

Now, this is my quick lunch. My old time favorite: Chicken and Spaghetti meal.

Pakyaw: Cruise, Dine and Unwind - 66% off Sun Cruises' Manila Bay Cruise

My impulsive buying habit is again attacking me! I purposely don't open the emails where the offers from different group buying sites. I have several coupons and vouchers on hand already and some even expired already.

Today, somebody posted this offer from Pakyaw : Cruise, dine and unwind - 66% off Sun Cruises' Manila Bay Cruise! In minutes, I was already in the check out section. Good that they don't have a PayPal mode of payment - otherwise it would have been sale already.

I opted for a BDO direct deposit payment scheme. That way, I still have 2 days to think it over. But actually, why think twice? Don't you think it is a good deal? To dine and unwind in Manila Bay! How lovely!

By the way, I wonder why I have a credit in my account for Php 150.00. Since I purchased for 4 tickets, instead of paying Php 188 x 4 = Php 752.00 - will only pay for Php 602.00. That's not bad at all!

Ice Cream Lovers

My kids love ice cream! I guess everybody wants to eat ice cream, who wouldn't?


Taken this the other week, I asked our helper to buy tomato sauce in Finds Convenience Store and since one of the boy came along, he bought 3 pieces of individually wrapped cookies and cream flavor.

Popular Halo-Halo of Chowking

In a hot and humid day, I always like to eat halohalo. Its the Filipino version of ice cream. The best ice cream for me is from Chowking.

This photo is taken in Cagayan de Oro during their fiesta. It was so hot and traffic and thought of halo-halo!
