New Royce' favorite: Nutty Bar Chocolate

When Royce' Chocolate started having stores in the Philippines a few years ago, it was big news for all Pinoy chocoholics. You didn't have to wait any longer to go on a trip abroad to be able to buy them, or ask traveling friends to get a hold of them for you. In the past, I was partial to their Champagne Nama and their Potatochip Chocolate. These have been my favorites for quite some time, and these are what I buy whenever I allow myself to indulge in some Royce' chocolate.

Today, my friend Eileen texted me to say that she dropped off some chocolates for me at my office- a pre-Valentine gift of sorts. When I went to get it at the lobby, I was very happy to see that the chocolates were from Royce. The size and shape of the box were unfamiliar to me though.

When I opened it and saw that it was called "Nutty Bar Chocolate", I was even more excited. I love nuts in my chocolate, and this sounded something I would totally enjoy. According to the box, it was "Almond Pecannut Cashewnut Macadamianut Nutty puff and Praline in Chocolate". Heaven!

I ripped off the box's wrappings and saw that it had ten individually wrapped bars inside. In principle, this allows one to eat it over a period of time (with the Nama and the chips, you have a time limit after opening since all of the chocolate is exposed).

In practice though, this period of time translated to five minutes right after I opened the box.

How the box looked five minutes after opening

To be fair, I only finished half the box in those five minutes. I have to admit though that it took all my self control not to consume the whole box in one (ten-minute-or-less) sitting.

Obviously, Royce's Nutty Bar Chocolate was a hit with me. As I said, I had to draw on a lot EQ to put away the remaining five bars to enjoy later. But judging from the way I can't stop looking at the box though, that "later" might just mean a few minutes from now.

How could you ignore those other nutty bars? Don't you think they'll feel rejected? After all, you don't want to hurt their feelings... ;-)

Lab-as Seafood Restaurant in Dumaguete

The first time I went to Dumaguete City was some six or seven years ago. I went there to go scuba diving in Apo Island, one of the Philippines' best-protected marine sanctuaries. Apo Island is a 30-minute boat ride away from the city. There are two things I remember from that trip. One, diving Apo Island was great, and two, the food in Dumaguete was cheap.

So when my best couple-friends Anjou and Anton invited me to go diving with them in Apo Island over the Holy Week, I didn't hesitate. They never make me feel like a third wheel, so I figured going on this trip would be fun, and not at all awkward. Diving + cheap food... what's not to like?

We stayed at Antulang Resort, which is more than an hour's drive away from Dumaguete (and the airport). We ate most of our meals in Antulang (that's a whole different story), so I didn't really get to eat in the city until it was my last day.

After a couple of days of fantastic dives and a day of just bumming around in the re…

Catching up with cousins at Italianni's

My cousin Bong is a human rights lawyer in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He was in town recently to visit family and friends, and more significantly, to promote his self-published book, "God Loves Bakla". It talks about his painful struggle to stay in the closet, and the liberation he felt when he finally found the strength and courage to step out of it. I'm very proud that he has come out (no pun intended) with this book. It's going to be a very controversial book for some, and a helpful one for many others. But... that's a whole different story.

Anyway, I was lucky that he had some time to have lunch with me during his brief holiday, and he decided that we should meet up in Italianni's, because he missed having the caesar's salad there. Along with our other cousin Treena, we discussed his book over pizza and pasta. Luckily for me, they were agreeable to having pescetarian-friendly choices, so we ordered their Fettucine Alfredo with Shrimp, some Pizza Margherita,…

A new find: Relish, Hello Happiness! Restaurant

I'd seen the construction of this new restaurant "Relish" going on, because it's right beside Cerchio, where Chi and I so often have lunch. This week, we decided to finally try this new place. The facade amuses me, because it's so positive about how your experience will go. In fact, the complete name of the restaurant appears to be "Relish, Hello Happiness!" (Yes, it comes complete with exclamation point.)

When Chi and I entered, our first impression of the place was that it was a restaurant for "ladies who lunch", probably because a lot of the clientele at that time were, well, ladies. It was perfect for our purposes, as we wanted a place to chat and catch up on gossip since we hadn't seen each other for a few weeks.

I ordered the pumpkin soup to start, since I am still in search of the best pumpkin soup in the city, and Chi and I both ordered the Cream Dory with Lemon Pepper Sauce.

The pumpkin soup tasted a lot like those of other rest…
