Life is…

Life is filled with choices
much like the seemingly endless array of bubble tea shops,
different people will have different choices for different reasons…respect is key

When Spontaneous is Delicious

Have you ever gotten into your car with no definite place to go?

After lunch, hubby and i got ready to leave, and hopped into our car for a day of spontaneity.  Our road trip lead us to a small restaurant in Banawe called Ersao.

Once inside, we realized that this restaurant was a milk tea shop serving Chinese food.

the counter was filled with Asian goodies ranging from Japanese mini cakes to chips

at the corner of the small restaurant, there was a freezer with the shop’s ingredients, some for sale

there was also a wall of shelves with Asian condiments you could purchase

after some musing, I ordered my favorite taro milk tea and hubby had a watermelon fruit shake

these beverages were very refreshing

and because i wanted to make the most of the spontaneous mood, i ordered QQ Pao

i didnt even know what this exactly was when i ordered it, but a mouthful told me i ordered good!  it had spicy ground pork with a sweet gelatinous covering.  i was told that the covering was made of sweet potato.  i know it sounds odd, but the dimsum was delicious!

hubby on the other hand ordered a predictable favorite

this beef noodle soup was very tasty!
the noodles were flavored by the tender beef cubes swimming in a steaming delicious broth.  this bowl is actually big enough for sharing, if you’re just snacking that is!

and as we finished slurping our warm noodle soup, i thought, i never knew spontaneity was so delicious!
