Cupcake Towers are AWESOME!

Yep, I officially prefer cupcake towers compare to ordinary cakes.

We had a cupcake tower for my mother’s birthday instead of using ordinary cakes. The shop we got it, called Crumbs (sorry guys, I can’t find your FB profile >_<) made these really great Velvet Witch cupcakes, which would probably look good as a christmas gift ideas since it’s red with this cream cheese topping (yum). It’s really great since it’s not as sweet as chocolate, but not too bland.

Not to mention they’re a tad cheaper than specially made cakes from bakeshops.

Plus, more variety!

The shop called Crumbs is actually near here, along Marcos Highway. I forgot the name of the building, but when I do, I’ll make sure to post it up here. Hopefully I could get one of those cupcakes again. XD

I Shall Solve The Christmas Wrapper Dilemma XD

YES I SHALL!!!

One of the main issues my mom has when she’s wrapping presents is that the trash we left behind. All the torn paper, the wasted satin bows, etc.

I have a good (albeit crazy) idea how to fix it. In fact, you can call it a delectable Christmas gift idea

EDIBLE WRAPPING PAPER!!!!

What? WHAT?! It’s a great idea! Just recently, I saw a scientific show about how they were able to make a plastic-like material made of potato starch, and how it wasn’t as toxic as normal plastic, and how safe it is for kids since they can basically eat the potato-plastic. And I thought, well, since they can do that with plastic, why not with paper?

Wouldn’t it be cool to just EAT the wrapping paper after opening your gift instead of throwing it out the trash and risk a replay of the dreaded Ondoy/Ketsana disaster? It’s going to be very Earth friendly, but probably not tummy or carb-friendly. XD Not to mention kid-friendly too, since plastic is one of the main factors of suffocation among young children.

And then… THEN! Every colored edible paper would have a flavor! Like apple for green paper, strawberry for red paper, blueberries for blue paper, etc., etc…

And then the ribbon itself would be made of thin, hardened TOFFEE! XD

Oh wow… talk about trippin’. Harharhar. Yes… too much Internet can fry up my brain. That whole edible-wrapper idea came after I thought about the “blood whales”. ~_~

But still, it’s a good idea, right? I just wish someone could invent something as cool as this, maybe then I can just CHEW my Christmas present open. XD

Going Vegetarian?

I don’t know… is there like a term for this? When you eat vegetables and not meat but you still eat like… meat-based products like hotdogs and hams?

I think they call it “confused”. XD

Anyway, yep, I’m “sort-of” going vegetarian… “sort-of” because I still eat hotdogs and ham (like, processed meats… but I don’t eat burgers anymore) but not meat that are cooked in meals and stuff.

I blame my mother… harhar! Just kidding, I blame my weak constitution, actually. My mom recently showed me a short documentary called “From Farm To Fridge”, and boy, it made me want to eat vegetables for the rest of my life. Granted, I’m sure not all farms in America (or the Philippines, in that matter) are as brutal as these, but still…

The sounds of pigs and cows being slaughtered sounds like human screams to me… it makes me feel awful ~_~

Anyway, so far, the “sort of” vegetarian diet is working out for me. It’s definitely WAAAAY cheaper when lunch time comes, not to mention it’s actually healthier for me. But I’m going to need some exercise along with this diet to shed some pounds. XD

In the meantime, I’ll go grab me some carrot sticks. I kinda need a snack. ~_~

Of Filipino Fastfoods

Okay, normally I wouldn’t be mad about things concerning food, (unless you shove a plate of bitter gourd on my face), but this made me pretty mad today.

My sis and I met at a local mall, and her immediate invitation was “I’m hungry”. Naturally, being food lovers that we are, we immediately embarked on a quest to find a decent place to eat without breaking my sister’s wallet. (Man, I love my sister’s salary XD).

Anyway, my sister is picky (and I mean REALLY picky) and she was hankering for some spaghetti. She’s said that maybe she’s pregnant and her “baby” was hungry for some spaghetti, but I don’t know, I still say it’s her tummy that wants it.

So we settled on a restaurant that’s famous for their chicken, and I reserved a seat for us. When she came back, she had a bill worth 300 hundred pesos, and a plate of what looks like a piece of pan-de-sal with chicken on it and some fries for me. My reaction?

O_o

I was so mad! My sister paid almost a hundred pesos (for my meal, not including hers) for a burger that looks like I could finish it in two bites? I’m not a glutton, but the burger in front of me looks like it won’t even reach my esophagus or something.

I took a picture of my meal with a hundred peso bill I borrowed from my sister for comparison:

See that? My burger is not even the half of the bill!

*for my foreign readers, a peso bill is pretty much the same size as a dollar bill*

Seriously, I envy the other countries who have thrice the size of this burger. My sister said it’s because of the recession. I say it’s b*******. If the recession is the other fastfoods’ excuse for minimizing their food, then I’d rather eat my brother’s chili-infested concoction, even if it means getting gas from all that chili, or ruining my stomach.

If the recession is really affecting the sales of fastfood restaurants, I don’t think they should resort to stupid tactics such as these. You still want to sell your food without your sales being affected? Then price your meals in accordance to their size. I’m sure the consumers would greatly appreciate the fact that they can still eat their favorite meals without busting a hole in their wallet. I know I would.

It seems like all I’m paying for in restaurants like these is their name. It’s annoying. What’s up with the name anyway? If it’s food then the name shouldn’t be important right? It’s like buying a pair of jeans for 5,000 pesos or a brassiere for 4,000. What? Are you telling me that my bra costs like that because it’s 2,000 per breast? Geeze. >_< Meanwhile, after experiencing this, I think I’d rather rush home after work and eat there than eating out. My mom’s cooking of beef-and-mushroom asparagus would be more welcome to my tummy than a meal where the sandwich can’t even reach my stomach.
