a cup of dirty ice cream

I know the name might put some off, especially those who did not grow up here in the Philippines, but dirty ice cream only denotes those ice cream that are peddled by the friendly manong around town. Sure it was very cold even during daytime, you’d wonder if you’re still in Bulacan or have been transported to Boston while you were sleeping, but I thought this afternoon is just the best time to enjoy a cup of this delicious street ice cream. Besides, I went through the trouble of hollering the vendor from the second floor balcony! 🙂

I paid Php25 for this cup of chocolate and cheese flavored local ice cream and I must say they sure tasted better than the rest of the dirty ice cream I have tried before. I enjoyed my cup a lot I did not mind that I was feeling too cold after I finished it. I just wish I can influence the little man to have a spoonful or two.

breakfast is served!

Breakfast is rather tricky as I am normally hunched up in front of the PC to work on pressing online deadlines trying to squeeze them all in before the little man wakes up. So, I’d normally settle on something quick to nibble on as I tinker on my keyboard. Biscuits and similar food staples come handy and on most days, I’d just subsist on a hot mug of coffee as I work the morning away.

Today is a different story altogether, though, as apart from my steaming cup of instant cappuccino, I also have this lovely Krispy Kreme doughnut for my breakfast feast. Sure is more enjoyable to read all about local brochure printing while I munch on the sweet and chewy goodness of my snowflake-designed pastry. Thanks sis for my box of these sweet babies!

I hope you are having an equally enjoyable breakfast experience. Happy Saturday! 🙂
