I love boba milk teas! Sure they’re just milky sugar bombs, but that doesn’t mean I don’t crave them every once in a while. And they’re great to drink on the beach because they’re nice and cold. The pearls are fun to eat and the entire drinks is just yummy. 🙂

Nightlife in Boracay. I thought this pics turned out cool. The disco lights flashed at just the right time to give an awesome filtered effect. #nofilter

"Oysters and Pearls" - The French Laundry
This has got to be one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes. It’s small, but it packs a punch! The caviar was tasty and I loved the texture, and the oysters were firm but weren’t overcooked.

Gotta love the small mother of pearl spoon they provide to eat this delicious morsel.
