BBBBBUUUUURRRGEEERR

Last October 5, 2012, i got to try something that is somehow new to me, A HUGE BURGER! \mm/. Actually, there is nothing special with this huge burger its just that this was my very first time eating something like this. I just shared this because I am just so overwhelmed that i got to try this. I wasn’t able to finish eating this because i really can’t manage to eat it because my stomach is so full that if i would still continue i really might vomit.The store’s tagline is “How sinful can you be?” which is really perfectly matched.

This is available at Rileys Simon located in Davao City.

a REALLY SWEET 16!!

Hello Bite Buddies!! Today is my birthday and i want to share this sweet little cake given to me by someone who is really close to my heart. I have liked it for it looks really tempting and it really taste so good. I really had a fun time eating it, especially it came from someone really special to me. LOVE is really a strong ingredient to make a food extraordinarily delicious, I agree.

To all my followers, I encourage you to try and critic it yourself. This little cake can be bought in the nearest Goldilocks store in your place. Enjoy!!

CUPPY cake!! :)))

It really is appetizing for me if the food I eat looks delightful! That is why I like cupcakes because it does not only have adorable and tempting appearance but its taste is directly proportional on how it looks.

At this very moment, there is actually one thing I would really want . . .

I want someone special to prepare me one. ❤

my SWEETEST ADDICTION

Toblerone? Cadbury? Hersheys? Ferrero Rocher? Meiji? name it, world’s favourite, CHOCOLATE! Eating chocolates makes my day complete and it an even lighten up my mood. It brings so much impact to me and it is that very tempting that i can’t even resist and can even infinitely ask for more. Don’t we just love eating chocolates?

Chocolate has become one of the most popular food and flavor. It has been a traditional gift on special occasions since EVERYONE loves it. Eating chocolate will not only satisfy your taste buds but also can help your health. Research say’s that eating chocolate moderately can lower blood pressure it can also lower cholesterol by 10%. I think the best thing about chocolate is that when you’re gloomy chocolate can be your best buddy because eating chocolate stimulates endorphin production, which gives a feeling of pleasure.
