Cheese rolls@MaryGrace, Philippines

image

Highly recommended by the localites, and coincidentally there was a kiosk at the mall opposite Shangrila Edsa..my foodventuras antenna was on the rise. I decided to buy some home to try.

The promoter said that these two items are the trademark pastries. Each piece was about 50-60 peso, if not wrong..that is about RM 5-6 a piece.hmmm..not cheap either. Ah oh well..I bought 6, 4 for myself and 2 for my friend.

When I cut it open, I was expecting the cheese to be cream-based, blended and softened. Instead I find a thickened slab of cheese inside like a Kit Kat! it was a little too dense…almost like eating a cheese flavoured chocolate, overpowering the pastry.

I brought it to church and decided to microwave them to melt the cheese instead. The children loved them and finished them all in an instant!

Very different and unique indeed Philippino’s version of cheese pastries!

Coffee break@Butter+Beans, Happy Mansion area, Seksyen 17 PJ

image

It was a stormy afternoon. The raindrops were like baby bombs and the wind was howling like wolves. An excellent opportunity for a hot cuppa’ coffee and a little sweet bite!

Butter+Beans happen to be nearby so we popped over for a coffee break while wait for the storm to pass.

The tiny cafe was packed with coffee lovers. The sound of the coffee machine grinding the fresh beans, the fragrant aroma of coffee, glistened pastries nicely placed on display really creates a warm and cozy place to be in on a stormy day.

The americano (RM6) was not bad, but a little too diluted for my liking. As the cuppa was small..my coffee became lukewarm in no time.

What could be a better choice than a hot, melting chocolate danish with choppped pistachios on a cold chilly day?

Be warned: this danish is delicious! But difficult to share. I tried to cut them into 4 pieces but the danish was not big enough and slightly hard at the corners as well so this attempt caused a mess! I think you must finish this danish alone in 2 wholesome bites to have the best satisfaction!

RM5/piece.

A picture for our ‘leaders’ to see the burden added on to us citizens. The cost of living has been continuously increasing and yet our leaders try to justify to us that we can live comfortably for 1 month with a RM 1000.

Perhaps I could, if I have a loaf of bread plain water everyday and walk 2 hours to work and never give allowance to my parents anymore. And no foodieventure.

But that won’t be considered living comfortably right?
