Yay to a new theme for Hubby’s Cook! I’ve been wanting to change theme and tweak it to my preference but got so busy with other things so I set that aside until one night, boredom visited me and I spent a couple of minutes browsing for a food theme. Can’t find anything except for what my blog is sporting now. I like it but I wanted one sidebar on the right and a few more tweaks. However, just when I am in the mood to work on fixing the theme, my 4-year old laptop won’t cooperate. The monitor kept on turning off that pissed me. Aside from the frequent monitor shut downs, my lappy is getting slow these days. Hubby suggested I should transfer my photos to the EHD to make room for a huge memory space but to no avail. I tried to ask Mr. Google for slow computer fix that we could do here at home without visiting a computer technicial. Maybe that will work. Or, heed my bro-in-law’s suggestion – to reformat my laptop. This really stresses me out especially when I am working. Of only funds are unlimited, I could have junked this laptop and got another a new one.
I lost count how many times I have posted a photo of Halo-Halo in my Instagram account since the start of summer. I am not a fan of this and I can’t even finish a serving of this before but with the unbearable summer heat, I could have 2 halo-halo in a day! I could even have Halo-Halo at midnight!LOL.
Anyway, yesterday we had merienda cena at a nearby diner. It’s newly opened so we tried their specialty – Batchoy. It’s hot, I know, but my hungry tummy wanted a hot soup so no choice, had to try Tab’s Batchoy. After a bowl of Pork Batchoy, I and hubby decided to give their Halo-Halo a try. For twenty pesos, here’s what we had:
A bowl with lots of ingredients you will find in the usual Halo-Halo plus ground peanuts! There’s ube halaya, candied langka, glazed banana, beans, gelatin, to name a few. As I have said in my IG post, it’s super sulit! Reasonable price is the word. Now this reminds me of the air compressors at a reasonable price that I chanced upon earlier. Need to read about that but since I am craving for something cold again, I can’t help but look at my halo-halo photos in my flickr.
One thing that remains to be in my wish list is a mixer. A friend said I could get a hand mixer instead of a stand mixer just so I’d grant my wish but I badly wanted the latter. Stand mixer is more convenient for me, I suppose so I prefer it more than the hand mixer that is way cheaper than what I wanted. With the coming baby, we have new set of priorities hence the mixer that I badly wanted will be put on hold (until I don’t know when). But seeing the mixer lift from ovisonline made me wish to have it after I give birth so I can bake cupcakes for our little one during its monthly birthday.
