Hiding from the noonday sun. #kitty I love mantou. Something I look for in Taiwan when we visit, I think they have the best ones. #gamerchef found me some in a market somewhere. #mantou for #breakfast is love. Our first mooncake of the season. Hopefully, with more to come! Mooncakes are very welcome. Where is the best mooncake in the Metro? #mooncake #manila Been craving pancit canton and #gamerchef finally caved. I'm usually not allowed this because its unhealthy and I'm sensitive to msg. But, just this once, I got to eat chilimansi pancit canton! Cooked #gamerchef way--with corn and mushroom, topped with scrambled egg. Weird craving satisfied! #instant #noodle #lunch Sometimes, I just want some good fried chicken and buttered corn on a cob. #lunch 인절미 빙수을 맜잇어요! Finally found a bingsu place! Ordered the injeolmi bingsu, I liked this one best in Korea, its not too sweet. Though not as milky, its still pretty good. I'm surprised I actually miss their rice cakes, savory and sweet! Next up, I want to find good tteokbokki 떡복이! #korea #manila #food #dessert
