Pleasure in every bite: The one and only Mr. Cochinillo

The day I fell in love with Mr. Cochinillo

Don't get me wrong with the title ok... haha!  I was just merely showing my adoration for the dear creation of Mr. Cochinillo, and it was amazingly mouth-watering.  But before I dig down into details, let me share with you what happened that rainy evening along EDSA.

We were scheduled to pay a visit to meet Mr. Cochinillo that evening, braving the traffic along EDSA (yeah, what's new), after a short but horrific stint of rain, I look at my time ticking away, while the cars along EDSA lined up like a parking lot, I was losing hope that I would still be able to make it and see Mr. Cochinillo himself and savor his tempting creations.  I was about to call it quits and duly messaged him that I might not be able to make it on time or in fact make it at all, oh how devastated was I.  

But sorrow turned to excitement as I read thru the text on my phone, "We have reserved one Cochinillo, just for you" Oh my!  I just couldn't contain my excitement, and as God-willing traffic seemed to be going my way, suddenly it was all clear on the road to meet Mr. Cochinillo.  Fate it seems, is definitely my night to have a feast with Mr. Cochinillo!

Padova, Italy: Where the sweetness began

In between Venice and Verona lies the oldest city in Northern Italy – Padova. It is surrounded by the picturesque views of Brenta River, the Ventian Plain, and Euganaean Hills. Tucked in these great sceneries are arcaded streets leading to large communal plazas. Through the years, Padova was able to preserve its romantic ambience with architectural landmarks like the Scrovegni Chapel that houses remarkable frescoes, and the Basilica di Sant’Antonio de Padova that is splendidly decorated with carved marbles, sculptural works, and gothic details.

Padova also shelters Donatello’s equestrian statue of General Gattamelata and the Prato della Valle, which is considered one of the biggest elliptical squares in Europe. A line of 78 statues surrounding a wide garden is another sight to behold. With citizens and tourists strolling around the plazas day and night, one can notice the tranquil lifestyle in Padova.
