Choco loko

I do love chocolate very much. I know I should slow down about eating it because of my sugar count. Well I can't resist especially one afternoon in my friend’s house. We have very healthy lunch with some veggies and super slurp y soup. It was indeed a great lunch.
 I cannot resist the dessert especially wrapped with white covering. I was thinking it will be just an ordinary kakanin made locally. But I was surprised that it was one of the most rarest chocolate I would be tasting for that day. You name most chocolates in the world but for me this one is new and indeed different. My friends was the first one to pick their choice. I was just holding on to my self as I watch them crave for it.   Atlast I got the chance to get one of the most chewiest  and chocolatey I have ever tasted . I really felt cloud nine at that time. I cannot express my gratitude to have  tasted one of the best chocolates made from SAN FRANCISCO, USA. According to my friend  it was the trademark of the place. And it is only available in their state. Though I haven’t gone to that place sure with the bite of their choco means a lot to me already. I go choco loko for a while.

Blue berry cheese cake treat

         We celebrated our dear Apong’s birthday every October 4. We celebrated it earlier for everyone to enjoy the whole afternoon. Her birthday falls in the middle of the week. She was born at San Juan, La Union last 73 years ago. The whole family migrated in Mindanao after the drought they experienced in Luzon.
So we decided to have a blue berry cheese cake on the day of her birthday. Blow a candle on the day of her natal day.  She was indeed surprised. So we sang some songs and she made a wish. She was misty eyed to see her cake.
As the celebrant sliced the cake all of us seem to be eager to have a bite of it. The blue berry cheese cake was so delicious.  Wow it was indeed so yummy and everything taste so heavenly .It last only for a day.

World's Teachers day

       October  5 will be TEACHERS day to all public schools. I remembered before I used to teach in private school we usually celebrated it during Valentine’s Day. But things have change since then.
    My second daughter was so eager to make something nice for her teacher. Since the theme is ‘MY TEACHER , MY HERO” I made something appropriate for the latest event happened in the Philippines. Shamcey  Supsup was chosen as third runner up in the said Miss Universe Pageant.
      The teacher has that sweet smile and long shiny hair. So I decided to make her someone like a Miss Universe. Even though she’s not that perfect in physical features to qualify for a candidate but she is a HERO to my daughter. She always shares what her teacher talked about the whole day. Some maybe her bad experiences as a teacher others will be the places she visited. She approached the student with a motherly touch. I know how strict she is. But mind you it is for the good of her students. She is still in their minds making assignments and how to deal with it. We made something like this handmade straight from the heart.

     As we celebrate teachers day next week , may we also remember our old teachers who used to teach. From Kinder – Elementary , High School and college teachers. I know we struggle for every teachers we encounter some maybe bad, strict, loving,sweet and for sure good teachers. They may teach us the basic to high faluping  words to simple math to abstract reasoning. All I can say , I salute all the teachers in the whole wide world.
