Poetry: Chasing Sunsets

photo: seekingthesouth.tumblr.com


A summer fling
Blue and green
A secret that clings tight in my chest
Shadows all over
Tired of chasing sunsets

I can only love you through words

Mentore Coffee + Bar by UCC Cafe

Dropping by Mentore Coffee + Bar for our weekend eat out satisfied our cravings.




G and I couldn't decide on which appetizer to have. The answer, get the sampler which consisted of  fries, garlic toast and fried chicken wings.




G wanted to have Beef Lasagna but changed his mind and opted to have Yoshoku Spa-Indian spaghetti instead. 

Yoshoku means a Japanese dish influenced by Western cuisine. 

The dish was a perfect marriage of sweet-sour red sauce and spicy curry. One did not overpower the other.





I had Chicken Penne Gratin.

Gratin is a cooking technique where the top of the dish is formed into a golden crust. 




Here's a guide to coffee and everything in between.

Share a Coke

Coca-Cola becomes more intimate with their consumers by stamping (usual) names and monikers on each Coke product.



 It has become more personalized - a good follow-up with their "Open Happiness" campaign.




I wanted to have my own too but with a name like mine it's impossible to find one. I settled for a virtual bottle instead. You can find the link here: http://www.shareacoke.com/#bottle

I'm a big Coca-Cola fan. Oh, I already told you that with my post here: http://fashion-sage.blogspot.com/2014/03/buy-world-coke.html
