Holiday Sins.......

Ok, so I cheated......

But I never denied the fact that I have a hard time loosing weight due to the fact that I like to munch on anything that I fancy. Let my new years entry post be a foody blog. Every time I would go home to the province I have always missed eating our province's famous Halo-Halo restaurant since it was located well....... a very near 20 miles (3 towns) away. What I didn't know was that the owner's only son expanded the family business downtown.

Take note: I only knew this fact 6 days ago. And since then I have long been like a prodigal son in his homecoming. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Ok confession time........

I had 2 bowls today, 2 yesterday, 1 the other day, another bowl the day before that another, and another............. This thing is a major treat! Sorry to bash, but Chowking's, Razon's and Aristocrat's offering simply cannot compete. I'm not a good writer, I have a very limited vocabulary and I'm already lost for adjectives for this sinful treat.

DJC Halo-Halo is almost the same age as our family's restaurant 20++ good years in existence. They have started business in the town of Tiwi, Albay. And now 2nd generation owner John opened business inside the LandCo developed business district in downtown Legazpi City, Albay. For only 60 bucks, I guarantee that you can get a taste of heaven. :D

ben darling,

i'm in legazpi right now. sorry i wasn't able to SMS you because i changed numbers and your number is in my other SIM, which i left in manila.

my dad, brother, uncle, and i were all set to run lignon hill this morning. we planned this yesterday, and i was about to text mon or jaymie to ask for your number. however, it was raining so hard, and we're leaving for manila tomorrow anyway, so sayang, wala rin.

but i've been running at the BU oval. medyo neglected na siya, kaya ang sakit sa paa! 3x the effort compared with asphalted roads. pfft.

di bale, next time na lang tayo mag legazpi adventure :)

inay ko po, halo-halo!

i was never really one to care about my weight. but i can't seem to improve at the rate i want if i don't watch what i eat. i mean, i do a lot of sports but i still eat like an elephant (hence looking like one hehe)

that reminds me of the sumptuous halo-halo at tiwi we can't get enough of. at renan's house last night nakatikim kami ng luto ng sister niyang chef. kaya ayun, na-cancel out din ang pagtatatakbo ko sa BU oval. hahaha.

That's not a sin. Beans and ube are a good source of protein. And don't we all know that lots of ice will relieve soreness? :)

marga! dapat nag text, call, snail mail, telegraph, fax, at kung anu ano pa. para lang macontact ako. I was there for more than a week. I did all my training there for the holiday break. sayang!

TBR: come to think of it, indeed ICE is the best remedy for our injury and calcium is good for the bones right :)
