sweet things

you mentioned on FB that you forgot to take a photo of that fatty midsection of the bangus (milkfish). well, i fully intended to take a photo of the sushi roll and salad i got for lunch the other day. pero when it came, my friend and i demolished it, so all you get are photos of dessert šŸ˜›

we’ve been searching for a nice sushi place since T (my indian friend) and i moved here. we were both missing our old sushi haunt in poughkeepsie. it was literally down the street from my apartment. and remember the lines from the old “cheers” song ā€” “where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came”? the owner, the servers, the chefs, even the busboy knew who we were! the food was great and relatively inexpensive (well, we’re talking about sushi here, so $12 roll is pretty par for the course). anyway, T and i found a wonderful sushi place in rye and though the food was good, it’s just a bit inconvenient in that i have to drive about 10 minutes to get there, find parking and PAY for parking. in poughkeepsie, all i had to do was walk down the street šŸ˜¦

    i like a scoop (or two, if it's gellato) but i'm not a big desserts fan. (by that i mean, that i will go out of my way to find it, like i do for my other favorites)… but there, you gotta have room for dessert right? must be the culture as well. that sorbet looks very tart and yummy.

    i get what you mean. makati is food central, and when i was there i literally walked my way to dinner every night (indian, japanese, filipino, thai, american fastfood, italian)… that explains why i gained 30lbs in three years.

    you mean you WON'T go out of your way to find it, right? … i always make room for dessert. again, i'm my father's daughter in that. we have to have our sweets at the end of the meal. even when we were living in the philippines, there was always leche flan or creamy fruit salad.

    my grandmother insisted on it, too. oh she had a sweet tooth ā€” so i'm my grandmother's granddaughter šŸ˜‰ oh god, i can't remember what it's called now, but she always bought this very sweet, very sticky jam-like thing that you spool around a spoon and it took forever to eat. i'd grab a spoon of it and sit on a tree branch in my backyard and be as happy as can be. just remembering it now is enough to give me diabetes. it's not cocojam, which was also a favorite when i was younger. damn, what was that?

    i can't remember now, but was there dessert with our lovely meals at kalayaan?

    yup. sorry. i meant i won't go out of my way. though nowadays, with kids around, i do have to drive to the store every so often for ice cream and sweets.

    ha.ha. i don't think there was dessert with our lovely meals in kalayaan. and if there were, they were utterly atrocious for the both of us to forget šŸ˜›

    inuyat! that's what i was thinking of … good lord, i spend half a day wondering about that.

    ha.ha there was a rhyming song about inuyat if i'm not mistaken. it's in kapampangan. now it's my turn to waste time trying to remember the words. ha.ha.
