If I am asked to create another blog, I will not think twice to create a food blog. Why? If you can overhear my conversations about food with my husband, you will be amazed on how we talk about it with such passion and you can see the sparkle in our eyes and hear the grumble of our tummies!
And you wonder why I started to talk about food and it's not even my regular "Weekend Food Tripping" post? Here's the reason why. Coca-Cola recently launched its "Everyday Kainan Happiness" (Everyday Dining Happiness) campaign. In that case, we are to share how every food tripping we encounter turns into a very special moment having Coca-Cola around! Of course, Askmewhats share this space to YOU, my dear readers, to also share your own "Everyday Kainan Happiness" and get a chance to win something for you and your family! Isn't that exciting?
Before we talk about the contest, let me share to you my experience of Everyday Kainan Happiness. This time around, I won't be talking about myself but the love of my life! No one is as addicted to the "Food + Coke" combination the way Mr. AMW does. (Sorry Hubby, I have to share this to the world!) I will share to you our happy travel, food-tripping moments together with the Star of this post --- Coca-Cola!
This is our first "out of country" trip. We backpacked Malaysia together with my College Friends. We toured on a budget! Stayed in a friendly hostel, walked a lot instead of taking a cab, had our friend who works in Kuala Lumpur to be our tour guide.
What I love about Kuala Lumpur is that most of the sites are available for tourists to visit for free or with a minimal entrance fee. Lining up early morning to have the chance to tour on top of The Petronas Twin Towers was a breeze with early morning chats as we talk about the different people we see! For Keith, having a bottle of Coke even as early as 7:30am keeps him alive and awake!
It was super hot and humid when we visited KL, so a stopover at a fast food restaurant will always be appreciated. Keith loves the Fries and Coke combination, he just can't stop eating, even while taking photos!
Happy Hong Kong
A quick trip after we got married to take a breather from the post wedding stress. Hong Kong never fails to give us the "natural high". What we love about Hong Kong is the fact that they have convenience stores on almost every corner and MTR stations! Keith gets the excitement to look for different Coke packaging as we taste on chips, Hotdogs and sandwich!
I worked and lived in Shenzhen as a teacher for 3.5 years. Keith did not get the chance to visit me during my "work years", so I've decided to take him to this place for him to get the feel of what my life was back then. We walked around the city like we were locals! Took him to restaurants and street food stalls that tourists do not usually go to! Though Shenzhen was only 2 hours away from Manila, Keith gets to see such cultural differences! How about food differences? Nah, there wasn't much, they all tastes good....
One thing I can't forget about this trip is when we got so hungry in the middle of the night and we're too tired and lazy to go out. We bought some frozen dumplings from the supermarket and we used the water heater to steam! The dumplings came out weird but still, it filled our hungry stomach and Mr. AMW has his trustee Coke (in different sizes) to complete our midnight snacks! He kept the container and took them home! We have them on display right this very moment in our room!
My brother works in Shanghai as an Architect. Instead of him coming back to Manila to visit us, we visited him for a change! I missed Shanghai, such a bustling city and there's just so much to do! While we walk along the busy streets of Nanjing Road, we were lucky enough to bump into a ONE DAY FOOD FAIR! We get to try different kinds of Chinese street food!
Happy Everyday Moments
Now, don't get me wrong, we don't only go around looking for Coke when we travel, we actually do that even when we're back home! Birthday parties, Christmas Parties and on days we get so stressed from work and we just want to reward ourselves from long day's work! We celebrate it by eating our favorite food!
For us, scrumptious, enjoyable meal does not have to be expensive. The simplest form of food happiness comes from sharing --- sharing the food you love, sharing stories on how each others' day went and of course, having something you crave for the most on top of the table! In that case, with such happy moments, hubby never fails to scream for "COK!" (Coke). Good thing, I'm not a jealous wife! *winks*
