Time sure flies when your having fun, I can't believe that it's September already! I've definitely felt the change in temperature. I felt a little nip in the air lately and it's making me look forward to my Christmas shopping.
I must be mellowing as I age, but I find it that going through a sale under a very congested location isn't really worth the migraine it will bring me. These days, I prefer to look for alternative ways to do my shopping with minimal stress as possible. I'm glad to have stumbled through Zalora's Christmas Gift Guide, thank God for online shopping!
The temperature dip had me hankering for something hot, hearty and comforting. It was a good thing that Batch and I walked by Toast Box in SM Aura a few weekends ago.
Nonya Laksa 225.00PHP or 5.13USD. Batch's order, this is a type of laksa made with rich, slightly sweet and strongly spiced coconut gravy, curry soup base, noodles and generous portions of shrimp, fish cake, bean sprouts and other toppings. It tasted oh so divine and addicting.
Hokkien Prawn Mee 220.PHP or 5.02USD. A dish of thick noodles in a fragrant stock, which is made from both fresh shrimp and/or dried prawns then garnished with prawns, leafy greens, spring onions, hard boiled egg and other toppings. I love the flavor play of this dish, the contrast of sweet and salty plus a little bit of spicy kick gives this noodle dish a lasting impression to the palate.
Beckam n Cheeze 40.00PHP or 0.91USD. Batch bought several breads to go along with our noodle soup, thinking that we might not get that full. Boy, were we wrong! Our noodle soup bowls were filled to the brim that we had a hard time polishing off everything.
Moshi Mushroom 50.00PHP or 1.14USD. The bread was very flaky and buttery but it looked like the mushroom stuffing was playing Where's Waldo? with us.
Okay, I just made myself crave for another bowl of noodle soup.How have you been enjoying the colder temperature lately? See you on my next pig out sessions. :)
