Wow, it’s been more than 6months since I last posted an entry for Photo-hunt. I miss you all guys…. I hope old friends find me again here 🙂

Here’s my entry for this week’s theme:

It was, about two years ago, that I had one of the most delightful dining experiences of my life. With old-world Nepal setting the tone, food was served in antique, traditional bowls and heavy silverwares. Amazing. Come with me as I relive my old-world dining experience in Nepal.

Litratong Pinoy #23: Tsokolate (chocolate)

These are a few of my favorite chocolate stuffs:

LP tsokolate

Tabliya – cocoa tablet. Gamit ang batidor, the tabliya is beaten/whisked to the max to make a frotty, hot chocolate drink called sikwati. Kung ang eggnog ay tradisyunal na iniinom tuwing Pasko sa mga bansang tulad ng Amerika, sa Bisayas naman lalo na sa lalawigan ng Cebu at Bohol ay sikwati ang iniinom, at ito’y ipinaparis sa mangga at puto maya. At dahil sa Cebu ako nag-kolehiyo at marami akong housemates na Boholano ay natuto na rin akong gumawa at uminom nito, lalo na tuwing tag-ulan. Nakaugalian na rin naming gumawa ng sikwati kapag meron kaming tabliya sa bahay.

Kapag walang tabliya o tinatamad gumawa ng sikwati, nandyan ang paboritong chocolate milk powder. At sa mga kasayahan, nariyan din ang paboritong chocolate-flavored liqueur.
