The Fried Chicken Parade is passing through town, and this year, we are its Grand Marshalls! Well, kind of. At least that’s how it felt when we got the assignment from our food editor Migs to find the best fried chicken dishes in Manila for this month’s Appetite Magazine. Instantly, Anthony and I were up for the challenge!
Sundays are perfect for window shopping, and that’s exactly what we did last week at Eastwood Mall. Here, Halloween is definitely in full swing, as we came across a couple of squeaking street performers (yes, they squeaked), a very entrepreneurial Frankenstein, and the biggest Jack O’Lantern I’ve ever seen in my life.
This is a story about the most serious of cravings, the kind that takes you over and doesn’t stop until you give in and indulge. Last Wednesday, Anthony and I both got it really bad, as we were busy the whole day and managed to work up our appetites to an extent that now only slabs of meat could satisfy.
Hi everyone! It’s Arlu and Anthony, and we’re thrilled to welcome you to our new blog. We’ve been a couple for ten years now and currently live in the Philippines with our little pal, Dug the Pug.
We thought a blog might be a fun way to celebrate our shared fascination for art, fashion, travel, and food. ESPECIALLY food, which is coincidentally central to his being Italian American and my being Filipino.
Just like any other couple, we do have our terms of endearment for each other. In the mornings, I usually greet him with “Hi, Mister! To which he replies, “Hello Balloon.” And that became the name for this blog.
