No ice on drinks please

Whenever I buy takeout meals from any restaurant or any fast food, I will have to EMPHASIZE to have no ice in my drinks. It is like there will be MORE ICE than the liquid that they will put. It will be okay if I’ll dine in because I can request for additional drinks or I can just refill my cups. I just want to have more of what I paid and not having lots of ice because I cannot drink the ice all at once.

Castoreum on food?

I grossed me out upon knowing that foods flavored with raspberry, strawberry, vanilla, pudding, soft candy, frozen dairy, hard candy, gelatin, chewing gum used castoreum. And this thing is from beavers’ behinds. It says that this castoreum smells good and it is even used in some perfume.

I just love vanilla ice cream – a lot. And in this photo, I am preparing my ice cream float (vanilla ice cream with dew soda). But after eating it, I want to vomit coz I am thinking too much of castoreum. Although upon the things that I’ve read, companies who are using this ingredient just use a tiny amount as the harvest is few. If they use it, they will just put the words ‘NATURA FLAVORING.’ EWWW! Now, I am curious of that natural flavoring thingy on foods.

MacDonalds Filmore Colorado Springs

I took this photos when my kids and I were able to pass by at Filmore Colorado springs. My kids were planning that if this MacDonald will open again this September (hopefully), they will be dining in there. They are also hoping to have a play area in this fast food branch. Hope this will have a play area as kids love to play and it will be a great attraction to this busy MacDonald’s branch.

McDonald’s 324 E. Fillmore update

Is McDonald’s 324 E. Fillmore (east of Nevada Avenue) in midtown Colorado Springs, one of your favorite fast food chains? They are tearing this store down as of the present and they will be building this one for the whole summer. News stated that they will be opening again either late of August or week of September (pretty sure it will be a modern/high tech fast food chain).

Buko pandan ice cream

I miss my family, my country and the food that I had in there. And when I saw this ice cream I can’t help it but buy it even if the price is more than 8 bucks. Well, this is cheaper that travelling back to my country just to eat few Filipino food. I earn something from online and so this is a reward for myself from working at least 10am until 2am every day. I just ate this ice cream in around 2 days. Buko pandan is like young coconut mixed with pandan. Pandan is a type of leafy plant and this smells so good. Anyway, I will work hard again to save something and so that I can buy some Filipino stuff. Yay!

Snow eating challenge – pinoy-bisaya style

When my friend called me up yesterday, she told me that they had lots of snow at district 20. And so, I told her to make a halo-halo (mix-mix). It’s a Pinoy snack that has fruits, ice, and milk in it. And she did make a halo-halo with her kids but she didn’t share her video.

So, today, I made my own since we have lots of snow. I made my own halo-halo pinoy-bisaya style. My ingredients are of course snow, soy milk, banana, orange, grapes, and apple. And it’s so yummy!
