Here it goes.
Two weeks ago, I had a big craving on a newly-launched chocolate. I guess you heard of it too. It’s not a milk chocolate or those super super chocolate. but, it's a dark chocolate. Yup. You heard me right. I fell in love with Cadbury’s new sweet offerings – their dark Bournville plain dark chocolate collection. It comes in four types – almonds, hazel nuts, plain, and deeply dark! Seriously, you must try this chocolate. You won’t notice it’s a dark chocolate because the bitterness is absolutely pacified.
Moving on, since the Moon Cake festival is soon to happen, expectedly, Moon Cakes are mushrooming everywhere. Working for an Advertising Agency which has Chinese clients, we had our share of the sticky and delicious festive cake. Having said that, yesterday, I got one. It’s a moon cake in Pandan flavor and placed in an adorable wooden box. Oh well, I haven’t tasted this one but with the “pandan” flavoring, I’m sure, I will love it.
And now, here’s my blog on ‘Onli in the Philippines.’
And so, with a longing heart of pacifying my cravings for Filipino foods, thankfully, here in Brunei, we discovered a house which sells the hard-to-find Pinoy products. We (Shiela, Cecil, Aaron and I) just found that haven last night. It’s named Greenwich Enterprise.
Although the only things I know about Greenwich Enterprise are it’s owned by a Filipino named Mang Jose and they are the same supplier which sells Filipino products at the church on Sundays, what surprised me loads last night was seeing all the other products which I had been dreaming to eat for the longest time. *Drool, much*

Oh! Next time (if we’re not in a hurry), maybe I can show you what's for sale on the second floor. I heardm, it has all the Pinoy Paintings for sale. Soon!
