We usually eat and hang out at Figaro once a week, simply because it’s the only available restaurant that is air-conditioned and has wi-fi when my daughter has her therapy every week. I have mastered their menu down pat, and I can order with my eyes closed already! Aside from classic casio piano keyboard, we usually just savor the good airconditioning of the building, particularly Figaro. Summer heat can be deadly these days.
How I wish I was just saying this while singing the lyrics to a song. But right now, as I am typing this, strong winds and rain have been pouring in like crazy – for almost more than a week already, I think two weeks, to be exact. There have been floods everywhere and I am praying the rain stops soon or else the city maybe submerged in water.
My favorite joint, a hole in the wall bar-slash-club, plays the best diverse kind of music. I am not a rock person but somehow I love listening to it, as well as country, pop and R&B, while I’m there. The guitarist usually rocks the house using line 6 fender and the drummer beats on pearl drums. Unfortunately, that club right now is more than submerged in flood – it has been destroyed by it.
I hope the rain stops. Soon.
Whenever we would go to bars or fine dining restaurants, I’d rather indulge on desserts not on liquor, even wine. I am not a drinker – I was but that changed since I had my second child. I think I haven’t drank beer or vodka (even wine) for seven years! Wow, just typing that out makes me think it has been that long. I take the occassional sip but I never finish a glass. When we went to a concert, I was eating a piece of cheesecake rather than sipping cocktails in the lobby with a yamaha portable keyboard at guitar center at the center with a musician providing some music!
This is something I discovered thanks to a relative who bought it from Costco in the US. GAAAAH. I tell you, you wouldn’t be able to help yourself from gobbling it all up until it’s finished. A local version of the Brownies’ stall called Brownie Chips comes close (but it is not as wafer thin as the Brownie Brittle). The Brownie Chips, at 90g a pack, costs P65 – relatively cheap and not bad for your sweet fix. While the Brownie Brittle you can buy (I heard) at S&R at P500++. You can get it at Costco for only $5.
It doesn’t get any better than this. I just requested a trumpet valve oil at musicians friend for my trumpet and I also get a Brownie Brittle!
