okay, AJ thinks I am obsessed with food. hindi naman ano. slight lang.
in any case, since i am slightly obsessed with food, i am posting some of the food pics i got from my most recent trip to bacolod. pasensya if after you go through this post you feel any slight rumbling in the pit of your stomach. any indecent threats posted in my comments section will be dealt with slightly este severely.
