Eat. Drink. Be Amaltery!

What's the best way to cap off a fabulous meal? Dessert? Drinks? Why not both?

Pau and I discovered
Amaltery after pasalubong shopping in Central World(Bangkok) a couple of weeks ago. At first glance it looked like a small bar in the middle of a posh mall but to my pleasant surprise, Amaltery was all about ALCOHOLIC ICE CREAM!!!!!!!!!!! Perfect for sweet toothed alcoholics like, well, most of my friends haha (ehem!) The frozen cocktails are named after songs like Killing Me Softly, Fly Me to the Moon and I Will Survive (Doesn't really make sense in terms of music genre. I guess just personal favorites of the owner?).

I wonder why this concept hasn't reached us yet. Someone sign up for a franchise quick!

Oh, and of course, the taste did not disappoint at all. Yum yum yum!

What? Just 5% alcohol!?

The Origin of Love

From Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Story (adapted from Plato's Symposium) about why, whether gay, lesbian or straight, we invented love to attract that other half of ourselves to make us complete.

When the earth was still flat,
And the clouds made of fire,
And mountains stretched up to the sky,
Sometimes higher,
Folks roamed the earth
Like big rolling kegs.
They had two sets of arms.
They had two sets of legs.
They had two faces peering
Out of one giant head
So they could watch all around them
As they talked; while they read.
And they never knew nothing of love.
It was before the origin of love.

The origin of love

And there were three sexes then,
One that looked like two men
Glued up back to back,
Called the children of the sun.
And similar in shape and girth
Were the children of the earth.
They looked like two girls
Rolled up in one.
And the children of the moon
Were like a fork shoved on a spoon.
They were part sun, part earth
Part daughter, part son.

The origin of love

Now the gods grew quite scared
Of our strength and defiance
And Thor said,
"I'm gonna kill them all
With my hammer,
Like I killed the giants."
And Zeus said, "No,
You better let me
Use my lightening, like scissors,
Like I cut the legs off the whales
And dinosaurs into lizards."
Then he grabbed up some bolts
And he let out a laugh,
Said, "I'll split them right down the middle.
Gonna cut them right up in half."
And then storm clouds gathered above
Into great balls of fire

And then fire shot down
From the sky in bolts
Like shining blades
Of a knife.
And it ripped
Right through the flesh
Of the children of the sun
And the moon
And the earth.
And some Indian god
Sewed the wound up into a hole,
Pulled it round to our belly
To remind us of the price we pay.
And Osiris and the gods of the Nile
Gathered up a big storm
To blow a hurricane,
To scatter us away,
In a flood of wind and rain,
And a sea of tidal waves,
To wash us all away,
And if we don't behave
They'll cut us down again
And we'll be hopping round on one foot
And looking through one eye.

Last time I saw you
We had just split in two.
You were looking at me.
I was looking at you.
You had a way so familiar,
But I could not recognize,
Cause you had blood on your face;
I had blood in my eyes.
But I could swear by your expression
That the pain down in your soul
Was the same as the one down in mine.
That's the pain,
Cuts a straight line
Down through the heart;
We called it love.
So we wrapped our arms around each other,
Trying to shove ourselves back together.
We were making love,
Making love.
It was a cold dark evening,
Such a long time ago,
When by the mighty hand of Jove,
It was the sad story
How we became
Lonely two-legged creatures,
It's the story of
The origin of love.
That's the origin of love.

How to build your own gay person

Funny but a little bit offensive.

Sebastian's Ice Cream now in Glorietta

The best ice cream ever (and based on Rash's smile below I think she agrees) is now in Glorietta! Look for the Sebastian's kiosk among the other dessert options in Glorietta Food Choices. Don't forget to try Chilly Burger (my favorite!)

Ministop now caters to alta sociedad

O diba? Let's make pabili na kay yaya sa Ministop!

Thailand: The lady boy cabaret

Just in case some of you are planning to watch the Calypso cabaret next time you're in Bangkok - DON'T. Total waste of time(and shopping money!). Our local he/shes here are so much funnier and better performers. Here's the video I got from Pau's phone of the opening (or was it the ending). Anyway, enjoy...?

Thailand: The new mini-bar staple

Oooh guess what I found again in my mini-bar (again!) - Durex! Is it just the hotels I patronize or are condoms really part of the mini-bar staples now alongside sachets of instant coffee? Either that or some Durex brand manager just activated a really brilliant insight.

And check this out, aside from the box of Durex in the minibar(which costs 120 bhat), you can actually request for free ones from the front desk. I wonder if that comes with "room service" hahaha.

Tribute to the Temptation Island ice cream

BWAHAHAHA! Couldn't resist a photo op with the ice cream cone in Lumpini Park!

Not just another night out

It wasn't just "another night out, another dance floor" as Kaskade said in Move for Me.

Last night's Kaskade party was simply INSANE. I can't remember the last time I partied this hard - with hands up in the air surrending myself to the beat and just letting loose without a care in the world. It didn't help I was a BIG Kaskade fan and was literally jumping up and down(for more than an hour straight) and singing his songs a meter away (thanks bestbud for leading the way and navigating the crowd =p). Wow! Here's a video of the full 3 hour set collapsed in 3 mins =D Enjoy!

Note to self for the next Embassy DJ event:
1.) Arrive about an hour before the main event to get a good spot (so 11pm).
2.) Gulp down all free drinks before the DJ set (it's usually a watered down Vodka cocktail anyway so pretty easy to finish).
3.) Go to the bathroom while DJ is setting up.
4.) Get 2 bottles of beer instead of 1 because the bar's impossible to penetrate once the set starts.
5.) Bring something for DJ to autograph.

Thailand: No weapons and liquids...and?

You know you can't bring the following when you board an aircraft: 

1.) Sharp objects or weapons

2) Liquids
3.) and LUBE? tsk tsk tsk! No mile higher clubbers allowed on this flight hahaha! 


Kinda delayed but this goes out to everyone who wrote me on my birthday. I can't put into words how special you made that day for me. I guess I'm not that invisible after all =p Its great to feel so much love and know you've affected other people in one way or another. I wish I could give each and every one of your big bear hugs. You guys totally made up for the way I turned 30 last year (I was told that just because it was my birthday, I had no right to take a leave. HNH!)

Of course, thanks to Pau to putting the whole thing together. What can I say? You know how to make me happy =)

thanks Pau for the pic =D

Thailand: Sukhothai Shadows

Thailand: Biking around Sukhothai

Well technically, more of Paulo biking around Sukhothai with me riding behind him (or making angkas =p) ....YES YES YES! I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO RIDE A BICYCLE. There I admit it! Hanggang training wheels at pedicab lang ako haha. Its not my fault I was not allowed to play outside the compound when I was a kid (issues). 

Anyway, Sukhothai National Park covers the 13th and 14th century ruins of the ancient Thai capital. Its no Angkor Wat so dont expect jungles or huge stones scattered all over. Think Luneta with huge manicured lawns and ancient buddha images. Enjoy the video for now. Pics to follow.
