The Art of Eating More but Spending Less

Overspending has always been an addiction since the past but when it comes to eating, damn everything just looks delicious and the price? Delicious as well!

How about this, eating more but spending less? Boy, you’d love to do that but just how? Well, luckily I did.

In a typical Sunday evening after hearing the mass, food will always be the next destination. Since the Church was at the heart of the city, I never had problems finding one. The only minor issue was as to which. Because I was on a tight budget, any fast food that was visible within my vision or within the strength of my feet to do the walking, Chowking was the right choice.

Even at my first few steps, I was already visualizing the menu and “lauriat” was the only dish I kept seeing. But at the same time my ego kept reminding me, “Oh no, too expensive”.

Then I was already one person away from the counter, “Think, think, and decide! I want Lauriat and I can have one because I have a goal of gaining weight but what about my goal of saving? Ordering it may forego my weight goal but at the same time forfeit my other goal for savings. ” MMmmmmh?

When I took my turn, you’ll be surprise with my final order. One Fried Chicken rice meal! That’s all. And ohe, one extra rice! The funny thing was, in the extra rice part, I ordered it as “double rice.” How humiliating it was to actually treat Chowking like a “carenderya”? Haha! Below is my liquidation of eating more but spending less.

Eat More But Still Spend More
Chicken Lauriat                    P159
Halo Halo                            P69         =    P219 

Eat More But Spend Less

Fried Chicken Rice Meal      P79
Cornetto                              P22         =    P101
                                                          =     P118

Wow! I saved more and still getting the same “yum” quality from the expensive ones. Congratulations to me for I was able to control myself in such cases. You see it is just a matter of finding alternatives. If you need to save, then look for food that are of the same “Yum” factor but less price. Like below, choosing cornettio over a halo-halo is almost the same.

I just did for sure you can!


Indulging with KFC Streetwise Spoonfuls

KFC Streetwise Spoonfuls’

first appearance on the KFC counter menu was last year but poor me it was just last Sunday when I first took notice of the desserts maybe because it was almost 1pm after attending a 12noon mass that I could not take anymore the hungriness in me.

Plus the inevitable long line that I had nothing to do but wait, I can’t blame it if the only picture I could stare was the poster of KFC Streetwise Spoonfuls in front of the my line. Of course for an hour of delayed lunch and waiting, I need more than a normal meal. At first, I was sceptical to buy one but for a reason that I have not tried it yet which only costs P29 each, I decided to include it in my order.

From the selections of KFC Streetwise Spoonfuls: Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Banana Pie, Mango Cheesecake and Chocolate Tiramisu, I ordered the last choice. As much as I wanted to order everything, I could not because it would then be considered as gluttony and is part of the mortal sins.

Anyway, I chose Chocolate Tiramisu because honestly I had not tasted it yet. Poor me again! And I did not exactly know what Tiramisu was if it was a kind of a cake or an ice cream. Besides it was the only selection I guess that was not “daily available choice” among the KFC Streetwise Spoonfuls.

Other than that, I ordered Fun Shots meal plus a garden salad in ceazar’s sauce. The only thing missing was a soup for a full standard meal. Then, I instructed the cashier to serve the KFC Streetwise Spoonfuls last.

The Verdict? I was not pretty sure. The Chocolate Tiramisu comes in four layers. The top was like a whip cream with shredded chocolate, second was chocolate, third was coffee and the last one was like a mixture of both.

The first layer was heaven because I just love whip creams especially on cakes. The second layer was as usual sweet and yummy as you could expect from a chocolate. But the texture was a bit foamy and not really the typical ice cream when there is fullness and “something I could not explain” much like a whip cream but a little level up. The same goes with the third.

I was just shocked after endorphins kept flowing me as I get to used with the chocolate then caffeine just right away replaced all those. Anyway, as I had said Chocolate Tiramisu was my first time. While the last was like a tamarind neatly crushed at the bottom part of the cup. But that is just a comparison.

Overall, the KFC Streetwise Spoonfuls 4 layer Chocolate tiramisu was like a drumstick in a cup especially with the chocolate you can’t wait to finally taste at the bottom part.

But all of them rang true, and reminded me of why I travel: to learn and grow, to challenge myself, stretch my limits and foster an appreciation of both the world at large and the chair waiting in front of the woodstove back home.
