Wet Market Visit


Last weekend, my family drove to my mother's hometown in Ubay, Bohol. We always look forward to going there for its fresh seafoods, available in the public market. Minutes after we arrived town, me and my husband were already at the wet market,trying to find some good deals of the fresh seafoods. And indeed we were lucky to buy at least a kilo of blue crabs and another kilo of mud crabs.

Few years ago, these kinds of crabs were sold at P80.00/kg. However, since there are already commercial buyers of these crabs in this town, prices has gone up.

Current prices of these crabs: P150.00/kg for both blue and mud crabs.

I Scream ! ( Ice Cream)


I am not so much of an ice cream fan but I discovered this very delicious ice cream flavor recently. It's Nestle Chunky Choco Mocha.

My usual ice cream flavor favorites are : mango, ube, macapuno, rocky road and quezo real only. However, this new flavow is really amazing!

I first got a taste of this when I dropped by my favorite beauty parlor to chat with the staff there and they were eating ice cream and of course, they offered me a cup full of ice cream. I said "no, thank you" at first, but I ended up eating the whole cup-full of that ice cream and never hesitated to check what flavor was that. It was something new and it was very good.

That same night, I checked at the supermarket and it was available! My husband wanted fruit salad flavor ice cream but I wanted to try my newly discovered flavored too. So, I ended up paying one half-gallon of each flavor.

This Nestle Chunky Choco Mocha is just so yummy. I love the texture of the ice cream. Not so sweet. The choco bits in it is just lovely. The chopped nuts mixed in the creamy mocha flavored ice cream is just nuttylicious! Hmmmmm. I love it.

Try it and let me know if you like it too.
