My son Edmar had requested me to buy for him some of his favorite chocolates in Vietnam and there you go, I bought him some Toblerones, Almond chocolates and VanHouten. While for Mika, I bought some M&M's with peanuts, Hersheys Chocolate Bars and Crunch Bars which is her all time favorite. These two are not much into sweets except for those few items which they really loved. During the first year that I worked overseas, I just kept on buying any chocolates that I see on shops and groceries at Cambodia and Vietnam especially those with very cute packaging, but these two are quite choosy with chocolates. So, the chocolates would normally end up "untouched". They will only eat what they used to eat and that's it! (lol)
However, during my recent vacation, we were lucky to receive some presents and "pasalubongs" from our other "balikbayan" relatives, thus the result? "Sweet Indulgence".
We also had this box of sweets from Max restaurant courtesy of another relative. This contains an assortment of goodies like special "polvoron", chocolate cookies, tarts, caramel bars, etc. I especially liked the packaging which is complete with a very nice box, ribbons and ornaments. This is supposed to be for Mom but at her age, it's not advisable to eat much "sweets", so we ended up to be the ones feasting on all those goodies.
Luckily, I didn't gain much weight as a result of feasting too much on cakes and sweets during the last holidays. Now, I have to go back to my usual boring foods again as I am already back to work. Anyhow, there's those pics to remind me how I've enjoyed a lot during my short vacation in the Philippines.
