Break Ya Neck - The Royal Family

Damn this piece is hardcore. I really wish I could hit like this. Bow down! 

I’m not asking for more
But I’m not expecting any less
Just a chance if you may
For a do or die game

July 12, 2013. Saturday Ballgames

Today marked the opening of UAAP Season 77. Hurrah! I stayed home to watch the men’s senior basketball matches: UP vs. UE and DLSU vs. FEU. (I can’t wait for UST’s first game tomorrow!) After these games, I immediately changed the channel to catch the first game of Gilas Pilipinas in FIBA. They were up against Chinese Taipei that ended in a victory. Huge applause to our Philippine team for a very good start. Then after dinner, the whole family came to support my father’s championship game in the baranggay league. Even if it meant betting if these old men could still run and do fast breaks, I enjoyed watching them play. Age and arthritis meant nothing to them. You could see how much they love playing ball and being in their 40s or 50s didn’t stop them from having fun. In the end, my father’s team was crowned champs and we celebrated over 2 boxes of good pizza. I just love basketball game days.

July 3, 2014: CASA Footworks’ Videoshoot

Spent the whole day filming our promotional video. It was exhausting but all of us had fun under the sun. The shoot took place at Angono, Rizal - somewhere really… really… far. Haha! The day started early for us. Waking up to aching bodies from the training we had the previous day didn’t stopped us from this adventure. So much effort was given to this project. Excited for the final outcome.

Even with sore bodies,
aching feet—
we dance
to our heart beating.

In dance,
our bodies melt,
one and two and three and four—
into a single rhythm.

In dance,
we forget
we are moving.

In dance,
we tessellate;
we become more than the body

that confines us.

We become more than the…

Cakes!

My birthday month is days away and my taste buds have been obsessing with chocolate cakes. I plan, which hopefully doesn’t end as merely a plan, to taste these mouth-watering desserts before I officially call myself an adult. So, here is the list of deliciously looking cakes that has yet to make the last days of my teen year a heavenly experience.

1. Kopi Tiam’s Warm Choco Tablea Cake (P95)

I’ve been craving for this ever since. Tried it once and instantly fell in love with it. It has been my favorite! For me, it’s a tough contender of its kind. The oozing molten chocolate compliments very well the bittersweet taste of the tablea. *drools*

2. Conti’s Molten Chocolate Cake ala mode  (P190)

I’ve tried it once and would like to savor its chocolate goodness one more time. It’s perfectly warm and it’s those cakes I wish would stay in my mouth forever.

3. Chocolat’s Death by Tablea (P97)

I’ve been reading good reviews about it and I must see for myself. They also have Tablea Cheesecake on their menu which makes me want to get a hold of their cakes sooner.

4. Apartment 1B’s White Chocolate Cheesecake (P220)

Simply because I have not tried a combination of white chocolate and cheesecake. Now would be the best time!

5. Karen’s Kitchen’s Nutella Crunch Cake

Reading Nutella as its main flavor is a good enough reason for me to try it. Then I checked out their website: www.karenskitchen.com.ph and I told myself that I have more reasons to visit this place. Haha!

I actually have a longer list of cakes but I want to limit it to this for my birthday. I really hope I could try them all. I must start my quest! I’ve included the places where to find these goodies just in case you want sugar running through your system And, I’m happy to share my love for chocolates. Enjoy and satisfy those cravings!
