UCC 3 in 1 Coffee Mix

This is good enough for those moments when you need a quick caffeine fix anytime of the day.  Thanks for having this,  7-11.

Bonchon's Fish Taco

I love Bonchon.   And this taco would have been perfect for my taste  if  not for  the salad/kimchi topping they slathered.  It was too spicy for me.  Maybe I could have them hold it next time.

The Original Caramelised Cookie Butter

I saw this on the grocery shelf last week and have been wondering  how different this is from the Speculoos Cookie Butter of Trader Joe's we tried before.  I just might give this one a try,  too.  I hope this is less cinnamon-y than TJ's.

Mama Sita's Tocino Mix

I love tocino.  Serve it to me for breakfast,  lunch and dinner and you'll make me one big happy tummy.  :)  So when I saw this packet at the grocery shelf the other day from my trusted brand,  Mama Sita's,  I grabbed a pack right away.
From the frying pan to the plate.
My  not-so-homemade-tocino turned out really well!   It doesn't have the bloody red color and the strong chemical taste of commercially prepared grocery brands I settle for.  I shall surely try this on chicken wings next time.  I can't wait!

My Morning Latte

Nothing beats  a mug of hot coffee to kick off your day!      I rarely order mine from the counter  because  I like making my own coffee.  My coffee,  my taste.  I find extra thrill in watching my coffee  come to life before me;    at the same time,  I  just love  how it fills  my kitchen with that smell of a  freshly brewed pot!  (I do buy my beans regularly from Starbucks,  though.)

Pepper Lunch Express

 We tried Pepper Lunch at SM Aura located at their Food Court on the 4th floor some time last month.
I have to admit that I am not a regular Pepper Lunch visitor in their restaurant outlets.  So I couldn't tell how much different their  food was at the express branch  from their restau branch.   But I have to say that at this express branch,   the service size could be bigger.  Or maybe this is exactly the reason they call these food court branches of theirs Express.  :) 

McCormick's Rice Cookers

I saw this on the shelves of SM Hypermart last week when I did my groceries and I got curious.   I just might try this one of these days to see for myself.

Tempura Japanese Grill

I am not quite sure if they still have this set lunch package on their menu,  but when we dined there some time last year,   we enjoyed this entire set of meal for just a little over a thousand pesos.  It even came with drinks!   It is quite a steal,  I would say.  :)

Bizu's Macarons


 Pricey for such a teeny weeny bit of pleasure,    I know.   But it is okay  to indulge,  sometimes.

Presto Peanut Butter & Jelly Filled Cookies

A good snack to bring anytime,  anywhere.  With Jack n Jill,  you can rarely go wrong.

These macarons I got,  direct from France and handcarried by  my inaanak,   are just divine,  to say the least!   Thanks,   Lia!
