Shuttered Release

Photo credit: 9gag

So yknow where I am when I’m not updating here :)) I have an entire folder of 9gag posts very dear to my heart, actually. Those I would have reblogged if I had Tumblr. Those I would have shared if I was some loser in Facebook frantically wanting for some comment like “b*tch please, we’ve all seen this already in 9gag”

One day I will post each of them. Or I shall not.

Anyway about this one. Eyes left on the title, this post actually did jumpstart my day. I woke up from a bad dream. No wait, it wasn’t that bad. It’s just. Hrm, alam mo yung feeling mong feeling ng parents whenever their children point out their mistake?

Well, that’s how the dream was. My subconscious pointing out my conscious mistakes.

Whatever. Goodmorning :)

Pesto is comfort food. Cake is comfort food. It’s what you ravish preferably in a loose shirt as you rock back and forth in a fetal position, humming to yourself.

A kilo of gay crabs smothered in chili-garlic sauce, however, is not comfort food to me. It’s more like a blood transfusion.

It’s my madeleine out of Proust. I cannot see a kawali of crabs behind the glass of tiny Dampas without becoming eight again. It is my time machine, my childhood, my mom.

Apparently, all-time hang out tea places keep popping out like popping bobas.
This time, I got to try Cobo in Tomas Morato.

The place is quite big with such cheerful ambiance.

The menu was extensive. They had milk teas of all kinds of flavors. They had chicken pops much like Serenitea’s. They also had shaved ice desserts of which is as extensive as the toppings they allow you to choose from.

Unfortunately though, Cobo’s Black Sugar Milk Tea is the same with what other bubble tea stations has to offer. At some point actually, it does taste like Moonleaf’s Hakka Milk Tea — only smaller, yet more expensive. I give it three tea leaves out of five.

Although I must point out the their Sesame Snow Ice is a different story.

Say, Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese : Happy Lemon :: Okinawa Milk Tea : Serenitea. Sesame Snow Ice (best with mongo beans) is like that. Yea well, among any other in Cobo, this touched me like an iPhone application.
