Great food is best shared with great people.
So even though you’re on a diet, making the decision to make the day a “Cheat Day” is easy. No qualms at all.
Besides, nothing is better than free food! Hahaha!
So I’ve been a two-day cheat day (not a first but not definitely the last, for sure) as November 7th marks the death anniversary of my mom. It also marks the second anniversary of the Yolanda devastation.
And to commemorate the occasion, we had a simple gathering with the rest of the fambam. I would’ve taken pictures of the feast for food porn’s sake, but then I’d prefer to concentrate on satiating my hunger after having a no-rice diet for the rest of the week. Anyone who’s been holding back would really understand.
Then on Sunday, I had no qualms again on declaring it a cheat day because my bro decided to surprise me with a mouth-watering chocolate mousse cake.
Yup. Who could resist it?
I definitely couldn’t. This delectable beauty was simply calling out to me to eat it. Hahaha!
Then at dinner time, as if my diet isn’t already ruined yet, the hubs and my siblings drove out of town just to eat Korean food. Imagine we had to cross one city just to reach Lapu-Lapu City. It was a 2-hour drive the most just to spend a few thousand pesos to satisfy our cravings for anything hot and spicy. There goes my allowance for the week. hahaha!
Regardless, the time and money spent was worth it.
Unlimited ssambap. Unlimited greens. Unlimited banchan (Korean side dishes). Unlimited water, too! 😀
Of course, the day wouldn’t end completely without receiving a gift from the hubs. 😀
Such a beautiful day, indeed. I wouldn’t exchange it for anything.
By the way, in case you’re wondering what’s all the fuss about this particular Sunday, it marks my 23rd year here on earth.
Happy Birthday to all the Scorpios out there!
23 isn’t really my real age. 😛
We had our Korean dinner at Mori Restaurant in Maribago, Lapu-Lapu City, Mactan Cebu.
