Satisfying my Sweet Tooth with Royce' Chocolates

One of the bad habits that have started to plague me again since I've gotten pregnant is the return of my notorious sweet tooth.  I used to have this curbed down pat but with this pregnancy, it just seems so much easier to give in to my cravings.  And there is a Filipino saying that denying pregnancy cravings can lead to one's baby developing a birth mark resembling the food you denied yourself of (how that will translate to a mark, I'll never know.  Hehehe!)

Hubby, being the ever supportive husband, did always know what calms me down.  So on one particular trip to visit me and my growing tummy here in RP, he bought with him boxes of Royce' chocolates!

Royce', a Japanese firm, has been selling chocolates since the 1980s.  And with such a wide array to choose from, you'll never tired of their offerings.

My favorite?  Of course the Venezuela Bitter chocolates!  Dark chocolate is the healthier choice.  =)

One box comes with 2 varieties (20 pieces each).  This one came with Venezuela Bitter and Ghana Sweet.

Royce' has already made it's presence known in the Philippine market as well.  I'm not sure of the other branches, but when hubby and I dropped by their stall in Greenbelt, they had quite a limited number of offerings, so unlike their stores in Singapore where there are rows upon rows of chocolates in various varieties to choose from.  Hopefully, we'll see more variety here soon.

A box of the same kind hubby bought for me sells for around SGD15 (approximately around Php500 plus).  A similar box sells for about Php540 to 580, depending on the chocolate types chosen, in their Greenbelt stall.

For chocolate lovers out there, Royce' is definitely a brand to try.  =)

  1. My, I envy you so much. I'm craving for chocolates now, thanks to your post. :s

    About the filipino saying, i didn't know that until now. But that's kinda interesting. I'll probably relay that to other people who doesn't know, too. LOL. :D

  2. @Miss Do-it-All: Hehehe! The belief is just a Filipino superstition. I don't think it really happens. Hehehe! =D

  3. I think I've tasted that once in this lifetime, and the first bite made me feel like I just died and went to heaven. Now all I need is a boyfriend to buy me a box :)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
