What I Wore Today: MAXImum Comfort

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Food plays a big part in my life. I don't eat to live, I live to eat. So when an occasion comes along for me to be able to stuff my face full with things I crave for, I make it a point to dress for the occasion! :P
On lazy, veg out days such as this one, a loose top paired with a maxi with a little sprinkling of of accessories here and there to add oomph is the way to go. And yes, I'm wearing flats...from Crocs! :P My mom got these for me ages ago. I don't normally wear ballet flats because of my height and I don't think my feet look very good in them but there are times when you just have to. And these ones by Crocs, are the ultimate in comfort, my feet look good in them too :P

One of my favorite cuisines of all time is Indian. I love the fact that their food is brimming with personality. The abundance in spice and flavor is the ultimate turn on for me. And among my favorite restaurants to get my Indian fill from is New Bombay. They used to have a branch along Wilson that I used to frequent but since that closed down, I had to go all the way to Makati, until I discovered their little branch in Podium.

Here are my Indian Staples:
Rogan Josh in Lamb or Chicken (this time I ordered Chicken)
Not really a curry, not masala but something in between with cashews sprinkled on top. Excellent!
Yummy Roti for wiping off all the excess sauce left in the dish!
Palak Paneer - cottage cheese in spinach sauce or (known as ghee in the Indian world, back in culinary school I remember an Indian chef mentioning to me that each house in India makes their own ghee and they all have their own special recipe for it). Vegans must order this!
Falafel-ish (forgot their name for it in New Bombay but it's reminiscent of Falafels)- first time I ordered it, didn't like it, I found it too salty. If you like Falafel, just got to Cafe Med. Theirs is to die for.
My ultimate fave - Chicken Tikka Masala, extra spicy please! This is chicken in a tomato cream base (I think they use yoghurt). Very, very good. You'll wake up craving for it.

When me and Dennis first started dating, I took him to New Bombay and I remember him having such a hard time swallowing the food. :P Now, he is just as addicted as I am. Years later, I ask him why the change of heart, he said that initially, the bright and vivid colors of Indian cuisine put him off, according to him, it just didn't look natural. I'm telling you, it is, you just have to open your heart and let the flavors seduce your mouth.
And look what my lovely sis-in-law got me from HK...perfect for stacking! My new favorite arm candies :)
I'm still selling maxi's, for more info , just click on the box at the right rail. Thanks, have a nice day! :)
