Something Sweet & Nutty

Healthy You Trail Mix

I've been craving for something sweet & nutty (salty) lately.  Since the imported mixed nuts are expensive for personal consumption, I tried to do my own mix - argh! fail.  Thank goodness I spotted this Healthy You Trail Mix pack while doing our last minute grocery.  It's perfect for my snack cravings and budget!

Bath & Body Works Manila

Bath & Body Works - White Tea and Ginger Lotion
I recently discovered White Tea & Ginger lotion from Bath&Body Works.  It has a refreshing fragrance that is agreeable to my highly sensitive nose (floral scent gives me sniffles).  Best of all, it's available locally at SM Department Store along with other Bath & Body Works products! :) Ohh, love it! 

How's your holiday so far?  Had to cut mine short due to work, but parties & reunions are not yet over! Meaning, it'll be a week-long kainan and get-together after office hours before 2012...  Happy Monday!

With PNoy willfully veering away from the last Administration's image, we had no or rather a few long weekends this year.  Too bad, Christmas and New Year both landed on a Sunday! Meaning, we might go back to work half asleep... x_X  But on a bright note, the President can still change his mind. (fingers crossed!)

December 25, Sunday – Christmas Day (regular holiday)
December 30, Friday – Rizal Day (regular holiday)
December 31, Saturday – Last Day of the Year (special non-working day)

Anyway, how's your Nochebuena preparations so far? Thank God I don't have to cook, less stress though I sure am going to miss the chaos.  Like last year, H & I will spend Nochebuena with my family and guess what we're bringing? Yup, Dairy a Queen Black Forest cake! H & I enjoyed the Blizzard so much, we're sure the cake will be twice the delight!  Ohh, I can't wait for Christmas!!! :) 

Do you want to bring home your own Dairy Queen Black Forest Special? My DQ Sweet Holiday Giveaway is still ongoing till December 22 (Thur) 12nn.  Check it out HERE for more details.

This is it!  Can you feel the Christmas rush now?  Parties, reunions, and get-together celebrations are happening everywhere all over the country.  Since I have a liking with sweet food, it only means one thing for me - sweets madness! 

To share my delight, I act as a Sweets Santa to my family and friends each year.  They would either have a home-baked goodie or a personally selected cake by me.  This year,  I'm relying on one of my favorite sweet shops to do the magic  - Dairy Queen! 

    Dairy Queen Holiday Black Forest Collection

My husband is especially thrilled with this year's DQ holiday special, it has all his favorite things in a single cup - chocolate, ice cream, and cherries!

Of course, I wouldn't be a Sweets Santa if I do not share this mouth-watering treat to you, right?  To thank all local my readers, I'm raffling a P500 Dairy Queen Gift Certificate courtesy of our friends from DQ, Philippines.  Ohhthat!

To join, you must at least be an Ohhthat! GFC (see side bar) or Facebook follower residing within the Philippines. Simple, right?  Register HERE

The winner will be selected via electronic raffle and will be announced by December 22, 2011. 

For more sweet treats, check out DQ's ongoing promo in their Facebook fan page.

Sopas (Chicken Macaroni Soup) is one of the popular comfort foods here in the Philippines especially during cold and rainy days. It's so easy to do and can be served anytime of the day. 

So what makes this one special?

Happy Happy Feet


I'm going to find us a great big UMPH!" Mumble to Erik, Happy Feet Two

Ohhthat! Gorilla Shoes.  Spotted this uniquely designed barefoot running shoes in the mall several days back.  I've been hearing about this trend early this year but didn't bother to check it since - well, it's weird!  Anyway, I finally did some research and found some cool stuffs that may be worth to give these funny-looking shoes a second look.
