When life gives you 36.4 degree Celsius of temperature,
What do you do?
Eat ice cream.
And this is how I’m spending my day today…eating ice cream.
And you should definitely have a scoop or even a bowl, too.
Forget the calories.
Today is all about ice cream love.

Can you believe it’s almost May? That means it’s just one more month before school for kids starts again. Well, it has started for some (reviewers) checking on this gre schedule. So it would be another 10 months of grueling schedule. But it’s the same every year but I still can’t quite get the hang of it. When will I ever? So I need to plan summer activities for May. We haven’t even gone to the beach yet. So I need to schedule a trip for that. I’m thinking San Juan in Batangas or Bagac in Bataan. What else? Baguio is out of the question as we have a week-long vacation in Kota Kinabalu second week of May. A Baguio trip would just be impossible to include in our already “tight” schedule but we’ll see. We have to maximize whatever time we have left before the busy-ness of the schoolyear.

We have a new favorite. For a long time all we ever drank was Moonleaf Hakka Milk Tea. Yes, we tried other milk tea houses but we always went back to Moonleaf. But just two weeks ago while driving along Congressional Avenue at midday, we chanced upon Dainee’s. The promise of a cold milk tea made me stop and check out the shop.
The tea shop interior is a charming mix of pink and mint green (I’m not sure what shade of green it is).
With extra big light bulb type light fixture.
Staying true to the theme as seen in the stools, floor tiles, walls and counter.
And of course and not to forget what we originally came here for…Dainee’s Delight. We loved it at first sip. It’s nutty and totally different from regular tea-based drinks. Ok, it tastes like toasted pinipig and I love pinipig. Php100 for the large cup. This is a must-try.

I’ve been putting off grocery shopping for the past couple of weeks. We have no bread, rice and other staples. You might be wondering how we can even manage to eat three times a day without decent food at home. For one, there’s always the reliable food delivery who can send us anything from fries to chicken and even Send Flowers if they have that service too. Second, we eat out. Third, noodles. This house never runs out of noodles. It’s probably the easiest meal to assemble but not the healthiest. I know, I know. I have to get my butt off the bed and go to the grocery. Have I told you that grocery shopping is my least favorite thing to do?
