Hi everyone,

Would you like to try family style? And I love to shop at their market too. Yes, shopping at Ethnic markets really excites me.

They have desserts too, but since the weather's getting really hot, maybe we can walk to a nearby FILIPINO place called Goldilocks for my favorite HALO HALO??!! Yaaaaaaaay!!))
