my 2 kilograms' worth

my mom celebrated her birthday last August 19. it was also Quezon City day-for it was the birthday of the former president Manuel Luis Quezon. my mom was actually named Maria Luisa, after the late president. my brother's oath-taking ceremony also happened that same day so we had no excuse not to have a quick dinner before they drove off to the province. what a day!
Happy Birthday Mom! Congratulations to Mike and all the new nurses! :)

Birthday Noodle-this one's really good. i'm not really a fan of pancit. i'd rather have congee or mami with soup, beef and wanton during ordinary days, but this one's pretty tasty! i like the sauce with orange quail eggs, shrimp, meat and veggies.
its been a tradition to cook pancit or noodles whenever someone's celebrating his/her birthday. the long noodles signify a long, happy and healthy life. the noodles should never be cut if you don't want to cut one's life short.

Seafood Salad Roll- another favorite of mine. mix of crab sticks, some veggies, mango with mayo rolled on some sort of batter then fried. these rolls are best eaten with their secret dip-it's like tartar sauce but i'm not really sure. lol.. it's sweet and has a bit of tangy taste. the best seafood salad roll i've tasted was that of david's tea house.

I've been eating a lot that whole week and even the week before that. what else should i do? haha.. there were a lot of holidays and class suspensions due to typhoons. i can't think of better ways to spend the free time but to eat! i'm a foodie! i love food and if given a chance, i'd travel the whole world and try everything from fine dining to fast food to street food, i'm game! :) but since i'm still here in the philippines i'll settle with taco bell's mexican food. i love cheese, beef and sour cream so it's not difficult for me to love mexican food. in fact, tacos and quesadillas are some of my favorites.

Taco Bell Crunch Wrap- it's delicious and surprisingly crunchy. it's like taco, only wrapped differently and bigger in serving. i ordered this one because i feared that my first order wouldn't satisfy my appetite. i really wanted to eat rice that time and i thought that i wouldn't be satisfied with chalupa alone. that's what i thought!

chalupa- for people who are not that familiar with mexican food,they'll be mistaken and think that this is just another taco. if they look closely, the wrap used is flat bread. technically, it's heavier to the tummy compared to the regular flour or corn tortilla. it was my first time to try chalupa and i didn't expect the bread to be that crunchy. overall, i loved this mexican food encounter and i'm looking forward til the next time.

no wonder i gained 2 kilograms since 2 weeks ago! i was shocked last time i checked my weight at the gym! lolz..
