Working in the Casino

My friend Amy works in a CasinoHotel, and I am really very happy for her because she is always excited to go to work. She shared that they get free meals and that a Filipino chef takes care of all employees food from breakfast, lunch and dinner, whichever is applicable for each of them.

Wow. That is truly something. That hotel must really be doing very well. I wonder if online Casinos also have that luxury to provide their employees. Hmm, I guess so. Being in the Casino business is something really big and to provide the best even for the employees is one great incentive for employees to love their jobs.

Hurrah for Chedy!

Chedy was singing her heart out.. "I left my heart in San Francisco..." And guess what is the reason for all this. If you think she is in love and just came from San Francisco, then you are partly right, but need to twist that a bit, lol..

You see, my friend Chedy's boyfriend sent her an invitation to go to San Francisco this summer. In fact, Chedy has already been looking into the many different hotels in San Francisco. She prefers the boutique hotels in San Francisco, and some union square San Francisco hotels also delighted her as she was browsing through.

There are many Leisure and business hotels near San Francisco, Silicon Valley, San Jose, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle, and Chedy's search didn't only stop there. Jacob, her boyfriend, told her that they will be touring all the 50 States because he wants his family to have time with Chedy. The two are engaged but will have the wedding here in the Philippines next year yet. And because Jacob's family is scattered all over the States, Chedy will have the time of her life going in each to meet Jacob's family. And boy, they are quite a huge family. But Jacob and Chedy decided that they will stay at the hotels instead of staying over for the night at Jacob's relatives.

One of the hotels that Chedy had been looking into are the many Larkspur Hotels & Restaurants that offer three distinct hotel brands, Larkspur Landing, Larkspur Hotels and The Larkspur Collection. They are all spread out over areas of California and the Pacific Northwest, ranging from Los Angeles to Portland.

I did my research on the hotels she mentioned and I found that The Larkspur Collection is composed of 8 hotels, and each of the 8 offers unique, individual experience, that highly complements the local flavor of the surrounding area. And take this, The Larkspur Collection focuses on delivering a sensory experience, upscale amenities and exceptional service. OMG! I hope Chedy will not stay there for good. Because if that would be the case, then I wouldn't be baking her wedding cake giveaways. Too bad for my business I must say, lol..

But, of course, we can never really dictate, should the couple decide right then and there to tie the know and not wait for next year.. You go girlfriend!!!

Hungry for a Ride

In the mood for some fiction? I wrote some crazy story patterned over my friend's Danielle's winning the lotto. Although the story is different, but what is fiction if it is based on real life? Then it would no longer be fiction right?

Read the story below:

Dave, a young executive never thought he'd win in the daily lotto. And when he finally saw that he did, he thought of buying something that he had been hungry for all his life. And NO, it's not Pizza, lol.. It's the latest model of his favorite ride, the nissan sentra. But his mother insisted that he get a more environment friendly car, the honda insight. Unfortunately, Dave's father overheard their longstanding debate and said that he should get a kia rio and use the remaining funds to fix the fence. And because Dave is much more confused now than ever, he went to see his Aunt Lucille who offered him an apple pie instead. Unable to help him, he proceeded to claim his loot. Seeing the check made him think all the more. He could actually buy three cars with the amount. But he only want to spend for one. He proceeded to deposit the check to his bank account, and splurged on an apple flavored ice-cream on a cone. He continued walking to get a drift of the days events.. He never felt hungry, he just wants to make the best decision on what car to buy.

By late afternoon, Dave was already very tired thinking about his ride, so he hopped on a taxi. While taking his easy time as the taxi cruised the empty streets, he then remembered an old Chevy that his grandfather used to own. By the time he was in front of his door, just when he was about to turn the knob to open, he finally made a decision. He will have the Chevy fixed and have it look like its former glory..

hmm.. What do you think? Did I make you yawn or did I make you hungry? hahaha.. Here, have some Pineapple Guava Summer Slush, with Cherry on Top, lol...

Enjoy your day..

Fun Left Overs

This was what I had on the second day of Holy Week..

The weekend before that, we went to Pizza Hut for some Pizza and pasta. We usually take home what we can not finish. So that very Tuesday morning, Lili and I ate the left over carbonara plus some Tempura, left over from Monday..

Now, here's what I discovered. The bland Carbonara from Pizza Hut and the salty Tempura are a good combination for breakfast. Top that with brewed coffee.. Ohlala

Ham and Cheese and Pontiac Accessories

There is nothing more delicious than having the best brewed coffee for breakfast, a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh from the toaster, ham and cheese sandwich with all the gooey cheese melting in your mouth.

Well, that is how I often see my favorite food as much as my BFF sees his Pontiac & Pontiac accessories. Gloriously delicious! Well, if you have the car in raving hot red-orange, why wouldn't it be? I can almost imagine a crusty, creamy, gooey dessert while looking at his new baby. hahaha.. Don't get me wrong. Just my way of having fun out of this warm and dark night courtesy of our rotational brown out here in our city.

But really, if you are looking for car accessories and stuff for your car, check out the site where BFF got his cool, unrivaled babies. At www.carid.com, you can find anything and everything related to your car and car accessories needs. Of course, if you are hungry and would want a piece of cake and cool desserts, you will not find them there. But if you drive a mile perhaps, then you will be at your favorite bistro or cafe. So keep your car gassed up for such occasion may come anytime. If you are hungry and would very much like to sample my recipes, then drive by my place and see what I shall serve you.

Hmm.. Sounds yummy right? If you agree to take me to the market to buy a few more ingredients, then you are welcome to stay for lunch, dinner, and breakfast the next day, lol.. On the fun side, we can all go to the beach or the mountains for some dry picnic.. Shall I give the girls a holler now?

Well, what do you think?

PIZZA DE ORO, Affordable White Sauce Pizza

>> Friday, April 16, 2010

WHITE SAUCE PIZZA has always been my favorite. And if all of you are familiar with DaVinci's in Cebu City, then you will definitely say that White Sauce Pizza is absolutely to die for.

Weeks ago, I was introduced to PIZZA DE ORO by the many plurk friends plurking about the newest White Sauce Pizza craze in Cagayan de Oro City. So I decided to try them out. Initially they had two flavors to choose from. And on my first and second orders, I bought each of the said flavors. Imagine, for P 200 you can already enjoy exciting pizzas.


Hawaiian Ham and Cheese - P 90
De Oro Overload - P 110
I love how the filling in each kind of Pizza blends well with the mood we have at home. Creamy, crunchy, yummy! Lili and River, as well as my sister liked these flavors. Last week, fellow CDO Blogger, Rosanna Lim, told me that I should try out the newest flavor:

Tuna - P 110

And guess what, I think I have found my favorite in their menu. This week they are coming out with a new flavor, Beef. I will still have to try that out and tell you guys about it.

If you wish to order, they are available for delivery, with no extra charge. I often check their Facebook page before I order. Below are their contact details.

Hotline #: (088) 858-4874
Cellphone #: 0915-4430-588

Business address is at # 14-21 street Nazareth, Fronting Lourdes Grade School. Soon they will have a physical address to accommodate diners.

By the way, if you can not consume your pizza, (which is quite impossible unless you order so many and there's just you staring at all the rest that you can not consume anymore, lol.. ) or if you wish to order and take it on a trip, all you have to do to retain its freshness is to refrigerate it, and reheat together with its signature banana leaf and voila! You have the freshly reheated pizza that is still yummy..

Banks and Pizza

>> Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Lili and I have had this routine of cashing out from the bank and then proceed to her favorite Pizza place, do the other tasks within the area, then proceed to another bank to deposit funds.

My cousin who is new in Manchester along with her friends reminds me so much of me and Lili. She shares that on her first week, she and her buddies had to scout around for banks in Manchester and when they were able to find one, they went ahead and proceeded to look for the best Manchester pizza. After they found the place, and found that they needed more cash, they went around looking for banks Manchester again. Lol..

Well, technically, it's a different drift there, but if Lili were to say it, "Bank, Pizza, Bank.. Mommy, it's a Pattern!"

Oh my Lili always amazes me with her antics and remarks.

Anyway, the other day I saw some friends and Lili whispered to have another trip to the pizza place after we’re done talking, fortunately for her, we went ahead and proceeded to go to Pizza Hut. She couldn’t help but smile and whispered to ask if we’re also going to the bank afterward because she knows that that was our pattern. I couldn't help but laugh.

So I explained to her that everything does not have to be a pattern. That whatever we do, for as long as they are not necessary, need not follow a pattern. She looked at me with her bright smiling eyes and said that she understood clearly. No further questions, she just started eating her pizza like it’s the most delicious food in the world, lol..

Anyway, it was a very good breather for a very busy day. I always feel relaxed when Lili and I would go out. Whether we eat out, watch a movie or simply play at Worlds of Fun, we end up having a great time.

Himalayan Salt

>> Friday, April 2, 2010

Himalayan Salt is perhaps the purest salt to be found on earth. It is actually a fossil marine salt that is rich in minerals that includes Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Iron which gives the salt its beautiful speckled pink color. And because of these minerals, it is a a naturally pure, nutritious and delicious salt that can enhance gourmet cooking.

Because it is harvested from ancient sea salt deposits in the Himalayan Mountains, thus, it was given its name. It has been protected and kept pure for millions of years there, and miraculously too, they are good ingredients in beauty products like salts that exfoliates and some body scrubs. .
If you buy them, they can be available from the fine grain salts, small grain salts, medium grain salts, coarse grain salts and the extra coarse grain salts.

Sea Salts

Do you know the benefits of Sea Salt? It is generally more expensive than the common table salt which you use on a daily basis and commonly, it is used in gourmet cooking. Some potato chips and some recipes require sea salt instead of table salt.

Sea Salts are obtained by the evaporation of sea water, the traditional way. N o preservatives, no additives. It used to be called as bay salt or solar salt, and its mineral content gives it a different taste from table salt, which is made from pure sodium chloride that is usually refined from mined rock salt or from sea salt.

For more information about Sea Salts, visit www.saltworks.us and know more..
