Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!


I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Must-Watch Films Indeed

After watching a very controversial film in our Asia and the World Class, I think I deserve something to wash my brain from all the overly delicate scenes I've had in that Franco-Japanese film. Thanks a lot to my friend, Jewel, who gave me a copy of the most talked about Indian film in school, 3 Idiots. I never thought the story would capture my heart, because I was actually reluctant to watch it at first. As what I've always said, I'm really not a big fan of movies.

As I searched about this Bollywood movie I found out that it was actually adapted from the novel Five Point Someone by Chetan Bhagat. I want to read it. What I love about this film is the power of positivity it is promoting. No wonder it became the highest-grossing film in its opening weekend in India. ALL IS WELL! No matter how big a problem is, just think that all is well, and everything's going to be fine. It won't solve the problem, but at least it will help you gain courage to face what's bugging you. This movie will also teach you how valuable passion is. For an instance, in studying. We shouldn't just study to make good grades. We should study to learn. I wish I could be like Rancho who is really passionate about education. This movie will not just impart you some important things in life, it will also make you laugh. This is definitely a stress-reliever! A must-watch movie indeed!

Everybody's Fine is another tear-jerker movie perfect for a weather like this -- cold and misty. I like this film because it makes me realize the things I've done wrong against my parents. Watching this made me feel so guilty that I disregard their feelings most of the time. I don't want to make them feel neglected when the time comes that we have to live a separate life. I like this line told by Frank's (Robert de Niro) son, David: "‎We don't tell you a lot of things, but that doesn't mean we want to hurt you." I totally agree with him! Sometimes we may keep everything in secret, because we just don't want our parents to worry too much. There are some things that must be kept unsaid, so as to avoid further arguments. Prepare your hankies as you watch this movie.

I've been so worn off the past weeks because of the mental stress I got from nonstop academic activities, and these two are the movies that helped me balance my emotions this week. And oh, do watch out for my movie review on the highly-sensitive Japanese film we watched in our Asia and the world class, In the Realm of Senses. You might want to watch it too. But I warn you, it's explicit. I wanna watch some more light and feel-good movies, can you suggest some?

Mystic Nymph Poses for a Break

I love it when I'm all so glammed up. For me, fashion is such a brilliant way to feel perked up and refreshed. It's really nice going to school in stylish comfort, isn't it? I think everyone knows, especially my friends, that I'm so crazy about the idea of dressing up, and mixing & matching clothes. I've cultivated a taste for fashion since I began studying in a school where everybody is free, and that freedom includes our choice of whatever we want to wear. We can put some aesthetic effort on our get-up whenever we feel like it. How perfectly terrific, right?

Being a fashion aficionado as I am, I should also have my own fashion mantra, and that would be this: We can do so much on what we own. That is absolutely the essence of mixing and matching your apparels. We shouldn't dwell on what we lack. My mood for the "photo shoot" calls for a girly girl yet animalistic look. As I reviewed all my clothes in my closet, I discovered that I actually have a leopard printed top. I didn't really notice it. What's lovelier is that, my garments' prominent colors fall under my favorite color combination -- brown & black.

I still haven't edited the contrast. Peace!

Immitated this pose from Vogue Magazine.

Do I look animalistic? I bet not!

I love Dorothy Perkins!

At our beloved canteen, Kalimudan.

I so love this shot!

Inside our New Media classroom.

Fashion and photography make me sane.

Black and brown look lovely together.

I don't like my smile!

How I wish I'm a motocross player!

My Outfit

Knitted Cardigan: Fish
Bow-neck Chiffon Top: Massimo Dutti
Shorts: H&M
Low-heeled Pumps: Parisian
Leather Waisted Belt: Got that from England
Leather Shoulder Bag: Got that from England
Leopard Headband: Got that from England
Over-sized Bangles: SM Dep't Store

Those were some of my favorite shots. I have to admit that I really suffer from itchy trigger finger, especially when I feel good about my outfit. It disappoints me whenever I'm all dressed up with my favorite attire, and there's nothing to capture it. Does anyone of you share the same sentiment? I hope you enjoyed my little fashion show. Til our next shutterbug adventure.

Change of Plans for Heart's Day

Fleurs pour vous mon mari!

My boyfriend and I are supposed to have our post-valentine lunch buffet at Eden Nature Park, but because of some constraints we decided to just eat at two restaurants instead. The Eden trip will be moved to my birthday. I hope that's final, cause I badly want to go back to that wonderful, scenic paradise. I've been itching and dying to go there again. Seeing everyone's photos there makes me crave for it more. Damn!

I still couldn't make up my mind on our date's final venue. I want him to decide for it, but he keeps on saying he's happy wherever we'll be at. Maybe we'll just go for La Toscana Italian Restaurant and Zabadani or Turquoise. I'm also thinking of dining at Jose Rafael Fine Coffee and Cafe Demitasse. It's too hard to choose just two among the many good food spots here. Help me out! I'm in dire need of it.

I Super Love Dorothy Perkins

One of my best loved fashion brands is Dorothy Perkins alongside Massimo Dutti, H&M and Zara. I love their styles! I already have five DP tops, and I wish they get to multiply. I definitely want some more! I've posted some tops that I badly want to have. Mom, hear the desires of my heart! They're perfect for some smart casual mood. Now, I can't help but imagine myself on them. I wouldn't ask for more if I get the chance to have these all! (Kidding)

This Bow-neck Long Sleeved Chiffon Top is just so lovely!

Pair this Folk rock rose print chiffon blouse with shorts.

Uttam Pink Tartan Ruffle Dress. Isn't it nice?

I want this Paisley chiffon tunic with beaded neckline!

One would really look adorable on this Uttam Pink Vintage Dress.

Lila Multi Colour Gypsy Top. It's just so sizzling hot!

Paprika Paisley Chiffon Pussy Bow Blouse. Love the name & style!

Chiffon, ruffles and bow-neck tops are really my fetish when it comes to fashion. I love everything with details. I think they look so nice on girly girls like me. They look so feminine and fragile. Fits my personality. I have five Chiffon tops in my closet, but not all are from Dorothy Perkins. If I get my first pay check on my first formal job, I'm thinking of investing on a collection of DP dresses and tops. Wishful thinking again. I believe that if one has a will, anything is possible. Am I right? :-D

Shutterbugs at CHSS Library (Max & Kat)

Libraries fascinate me great deal. They have this certain mystery that is very engaging. I can’t help but be stuck in awe whenever I see plenty of books before me. I can’t fully grasp the feeling of being inside a library. All I know is that, my tensions are alleviated because of it. I can feel all my bewilderment and apprehensions subsiding. For me, that’s a wonderful sensation.

I love books, mainly because I adore words. I love leafing through the pages, and smell their unusually good scent. Have you tried smelling those old hard-bound books? Weird, but I think it’s one of the best scents in the world (along with sautéed garlic and onion). I want to share you this quote from the movie Inkheart, “Books are adventure. They can murder, mayhem and passion. They love everyone who opens them.”

Just last week, I allowed myself a moment’s luxury as I again considered the joy of taking some pictures in one of my favorite places in school – the CHSS Library. I was with Maxine, my photography buddy! We were studying for an oral exam in New Media class. We actually just came from our Asia and the World Long Exam before that. It was really a haggard day, but that never hindered as from our shutterbug enthusiasm. Here are some of my photos. Enjoy!

Smile when your mind is troubled.

Munting BACA ni Oble.

Let's POSE for a break!

Looking at the text, instead of reading.

Books are wonderful!

Thanks for these photos Maxine! Our next “photo shoot” is scheduled some time this week. I’m excited! Photography is really my way of getting rid of stress out of my system. How about you? Anyway, watch out for my photos.

Mistaken Identity of Davao City

The images are not intended for copyright infringement.

Davao, for me, is a paradise. As a matter of fact, I am still in awe by its beauty. There may be crimes, but there are just a few of them compared to what other cities have. I am proud to be living in a city where peace and order are the top priorities. Everyone can paint the town red without fearing about their life. I can really say that Davao City is one of the safest places. Just don't live badly, so masked men on motorcycles won't shoot you.

Davaoeños and the loyal visitors know for sure that Davao is a developing city. We are getting at par with the industrialized ones. A little more effort in city planning, and our place will certainly become a bigger thing, in terms of business and tourism. But despite all these good things we have, we still get a mistaken identity. What I can't take is other people's underestimation. I don't understand why they still tag our city as uncivilized, barbaric and impoverished. It's extremely upsetting. Maybe they haven't been here that's why they're saying all those nasty things that are untrue. If they're here, they'd appreciate just how beautiful a city, Davao is.

Now, let me give you this not-so exhaustive list of the negative things we get from judgmental individuals. Mind you, it's distressing. Prepare and calm yourself, so your blood pressure won't get high. I got so mad hearing those statements. I won't keep you waiting any longer, so here goes my list.

Davao doesn't have enough food supply

I was disheartened when my Davaoeño friend told me that her friend from Luzon got amazed when she looked healthy knowing that she's from Mindanao. She thought the people here are malnourished because of lack of food supply. So, they really think that there's a massive famine here. Is it because Davao is situated in the war-torn Mindanao that's why they think we're unhealthy and famished? They give these hasty generalizations towards us, and it's totally disturbing. As a matter of fact, Davao is considered as the fruit basket of the Philippines, because of its bountiful harvests. That's actually the reason why Davaoeños are celebrating the Kadayawan every year to express our gratitude for the abundance we are getting.

If they're wondering whether we have food spots here, let me just say the resounding YES! We have a lot of them here, from your all-time favorite fastfood chains to the elegant restaurants. Try to keep your eye out for the ultimate mouth-watering food experiences here in Davao, and you will surely forget your name.

If you're into streetfoods, we have a good number of them here. Because Davao is the largest city in the world, there are also a lot of streets high and low. That would mean street foods are more than enough here. We have kwek-kwek, balut (hard-boiled duck's egg), isaw, barbecue -- name it, we have it!

If you want to have a coffee break somewhere peaceful and cozy, don't you worry cause Davaoeños are addicted to coffee shps. I think there are almost a hundred coffee shops here. One of the best coffee shops I've tried is Zabadani Cafe. It's a Mindanao Syrian joint owned by Sir Wadilkhaerry Ibn Mohammad Ali. Their coffee is relatively cheap compared to others, but the taste is absolutely superb. They're famous for their layered coffee and soda. I also read good reviews of Jose Rafael Fine Coffee which is located at Lanang. I'll have to try it there soon. I want to take a bite of their famous Jaffles. I've seen some photos of the place, and I'm quite impressed.

Fusion restaurants are also famous here in Davao. We also have Middle-Eastern, Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Mediterranean, Spanish and French restaurants here. Try the items in their menu, and you will crave for them like crazy. Who says Davaoeños don't know Western delights? I suggest you visit Davao. You'll most probably swallow your words. If you're taste buds are craving for some French cusisine, you should try the authentic Claude's le Cafe de Ville. I haven't been there though, but our French teacher told us that they're serving the best French delicacies in the city. Go to Damosa Gateway, Torres Street, Quirino and Ponciano to find these temptations I'm talking about.

Deliciously Davao!

Davao is indeed rich, especially in food resources. Pizzerias and froyo stores are the trend They're sprouting like mushrooms. We have a lot to choose from, unlike before when all we ever had was Greenwich and Pizza Hut. Davao at present is a promising food haven, I must say. If you ever decide to set foot here, don't fret about food cause it's nonsense. Just drive around town, and you will find the best of Davao's delicious satisfactions. They're quite a steal! Let me just say that Davaoeños are not just for the meal, but for experience. Dig in!

Davao doesn't have malls

The mall is the center of gravity of almost everyone in a city. We renew our civilized existence by going to the mall once in a while. It's as if we're reverting to the primitive ways of living, if we don't consider going to the mall. People love to buy new things for themselves, and everything they want are inside this huge air-conditioned building with different kiosks and rooms inside. Non-Davaoeños think we don't have it here in our city. I got depressed knowing that. To our beloved guests who shop like there's no tomorrow, worry no more cause we have not just one, but six major malls here, not to mention the minor ones. I have good news too. Ayala Malls Abreeza (May 2011) and SM North Davao will be opening soon. I'm very much excited about it. A few more years, and I think top designers of the country shall also invest here in the city, knowing that Davaoeños love fashion.

Davao is an impoverished city

Davao City is not poor! As I said, Davao is a developing city. We are wealthy when it comes to natural resources. We're even the producer of some raw materials needed by other cities for their products. In short, we produce what they need. There's this story told by another friend of mine. It tells how low others look at us.

When Maxine was in UP Diliman for a summer class, she had a classmate who pissed her off. Max told her that the Internet was pretty fast, without comparing it to Davao's Internet connections of course. Her classmate then asked, "Don't you have Internet back there in Davao?" OMG! Of course we do have! Is that how poor we are in their eyes? I think Maxine's classmate with a stupid mind is even poorer, because she didn't have the chance to be here. She'll miss half of her life if she doesn't have plans of having fun here.

If we're poor, how come we have many tourist spots here? Visitors who frequent here are continuously enthralled by the sheer beauty of our promise land. Samal Beaches are one of the splendid sites we're proud to offer for our adventurous guests. If you want to tread in a place like Grden of Eden, well then you're most welcome to visit its namesake, the Eden Nature Park and Resort. It's a very large area where you can forget your anxieties just by marveling at the extraordinary loveliness and serenity of this park. You will never get enough of this place, I tell you. One visit will never be satisfying. With as low as 180php, you can enjoy the scenic view nature has to offer.

At Jack's Ridge, Philippine Eagle and Eden.

That is what I love about Davao. You don't have to travel far and wide just to feel far enough removed to relax from all the stresses of city life. You will also find some good hang out spots just within the city proper. If you want to see Kublai Milan's famous sculptures, visit People's Park. If you want to listen to some good music while savoring the cool night breeze, have it your way at Jack's Ridge, Matina Town Square or Dencio's Hilltop. If you want a refined and comfortable suite life, you can choose to stay at more than ten hotels in the city. Not only that! We also have Gap Farm, Malagos Garden Resort, Philippine Eagle and many more attractions. What more can you ask for?

There are also enough job opportunities here in Davao. With the opening of new business establishments, the number of available employments is sure to grow. Just don't get too high-minded about finding for a perfect job, or else you might never find it anymore. Just give Davao a chance, and you will surely see that the industrialization here is gradually improving. For students, do good on your studies so you'll find a job here in Davao that will fit your level of knowledge. Speaking of studying, quality schools are all over here in the city. We have the University of the Philippines Mindanao, Ateneo de Davao University, University of Southeastern Philippines, Philippine Science High School, and many more.

On that note, I would like to reiterate that Davao City is definitely one of the best places to stay and visit. That is why I get daunted hearing others' misconceptions towards my hometown. I hope they find it in their hearts to stop misjudging. Maybe the only way to eradicate these misconceptions is to feel confident on what we have. We don't have to argue because we know deep down, that we ave the best! Davaoeños should let those who step on us feel that we can stand on our own, and that we don't feel insecure towards them. Davao doubtlessly has an abundant array of good quality food and places that will surely make your life pleasing and delightful. With that I want to tell everyone that I'm a Davaoeño, and I'm loving it. I'm a Mindanaon, and I'm truly proud of it.

Gihigugma tika Lungsod sa Davao!

I am Stressed to Death, MayDay!

Pasensya at ako'y sabog.

The past two weeks have been very hectic and chaotic. It drained me big time, but not totally. I can't imagine what it will be like when everything gets rougher, like the Thesis Defense week. OMG! I'm still not fixed with my topic. It's not yet in order -- from my RRL to Methodology. I need peace and solitude to think about what should I do before I get a 360 degrees change for my thesis proposal. I hope I won't get too paranoid just like what happened to a friend. She had been diagnosed with Severe Anxiety and Depression because of too much academic pressure and some other "un-DIVULGE-able" things. Scary, isn't? Good thing she's fine now.

After the scholastic storm comes a silver lining. I apologize for that corny line -- for lack of a better statement. I just treated myself with M&M's Milk Chocolate Candies. I think I deserve it somehow. I've had a lot of frustrations this week. I have to pamper myself with one of my comfort food to forget about them. I just love chocolates like crazy! For me, they're my stress reliever, aside from surfing the web and buying some new stuffs. If only I haven't spent much this week, I would have bought the new (at least for me) chocolate I saw in store -- Cadbury Moments. Sorry, I haven't been informed about it. How about you, how do you cope with stress?

A Bit of an Infuriation

Let me just breathe, and forget my anger.

My day? It started off with the wrong note. My classmates and I were talking about the Senior's Ball come 13th of February. I'm still not sure whether to attend or not. I have two other sisters in college, and I don't want my parents to be burdened with a lot of financial matters. I've already asked their permission about two field trips scheduled next month, and I'm afraid they won't allow me to join the ball anymore. What infuriated me was when my classmate told me I'm OA just because I told her about my worry. What's OA about it? She doesn't know what she's saying! I'm not as selfish as her. I care for my family, unlike her!

It has been a long while since I've used the statement "I'm pissed off!" Now, let me say hello to it again. I'm really mad! I really hate people who are insensitive. Who wouldn't, right? What's worse is, my friend has to be one of them. I've been good to her as much as I could. I don't even try to say bad things to her, because I know she gets hurt that easily. I just hope she sees how hard I try to keep her. If she wants her friends to stay, she should at least try to be careful with our feelings. We should all be sensitive with the things we utter. Keep the ones who care for us away from pain. I wish I can say this to her upfront.

D U S K by Mikimoto Angel

This is the poem I made for my boyfriend Ciovic. His former band created a tune out of this, but I haven't heard of it yet. Tell me what you think about it.

Heads raised on a vast expanse above
Steaming sensation rushing endlessly within
The breeze blazing this intimate existence
Stars gleam- revealing what needs to be hidden.

Stuck halfway across the world- both stayed
Hands slowly creeping to feel the undying warmth
Glances blurting out the flaming passion disguised
Elemental foes around them- they despised.

His whisper so gentle seemed to kiss her cheeks
Eventually giving in to what the heart seeks
Its heavy beating stirred their emotions
Striking them with this burning attraction.

A gaze they dwelt silently in each other's eyes
Losing all sense of time instead
A light steps out to give glory to eternity
The flickering star says something they could see

Then silence stretched between them
A breath is what keeping them apart
However, this gap never did last long
All of a sudden, his lips caressed hers.

My eyes laid on how the night sky exude romance
I felt the rhythm of their heartbeat
Stumbled upon the remnants of what I had,
Will they bade farewell or meet the new horizon?

Katrina's Thought Bubbles IV

+ I don't approve PDA when the people doing it look like they're just showing off. That's what you call, a phony love affair. How pathetic.

+ I am ultimately immersed in the food industry. I live & breathe it, dream & scream about it. I'm so ballistic on discovering new foodspots!

+ Disrespect is tacky. It definitely cramps personal style. Respect: don't leave home without it. It's the best companion you'll ever have.

+ Food for the thought: One key cause of painfulness is our demanding desire. If we try to resist desire, we remove sufferings as well. :-)

+ Most people in our era strive hard for things that have monetary value. We loaf working out errands for free. What we want equates to money.

+ I feel so sad whenever someone asks me to help him/her, but I couldn't because of some circumstances. It kind of frustrates me too much. :-(

+ Don't make fun of your friends always. Not all the time you make them happy with your teasing. Be sensitive. Keep them away from pain. :-)

+ This is one of the hardest part I have to face every morning. I see a closet full of clothes, but I have nothing to wear. I'm confused! :-(

+ We're living in a society where waiting equates to boredom. I envy people before. They don't need to do anything just to get rid of boredom.

+ Remember, respect should be earned not imposed. Bad mouthing people to bring their ego down doesn't make you a better person than them. :-)

A Few of My Favorite Things

My Lip Color Collection

The lips are one of the most attractive parts of the body. At least for me. I’m not used to it when I wear nothing for my lips. Since I started applying lip color, I couldn’t help but get addicted to it. Here is my collection of lip colors. My aunt from England gave these all for me. My favorite among these are: Canteloupe (Avon), Rubis (Rouge a Levres), Invincible Kiss Proof (L’Oreal Paris), Tahitian Fire (Avon), Manic Maroon (Boots Nottingham); and the one I bought for myself, ColorStay Ultimate LipColor (Revlon) which can last up to eight hours. Red is the new black!

2.) My Scents

Wouldn’t it be nice if you go out and go home still feeling fresh? I have three perfumes: Lucky You Lucky Brand’s Eau de Toilette Spray, Marks & Spencers’ Glamour Mist and Versus Red Jeans for Women. They all have good and long-lasting scents. These are just so perfect for my vanity. My favorite among these three is Versus Red Jeans. It still smells the same even if I’ve already mixed my blouse with all my other dirty clothes. The scent never goes away that easily.

3.) My Headphones

As what I always say, music keeps me sane. Without it, I’d go berserk. Kidding aside! It’s basically part of my life. I don’t want to live without it. Because I listen to rock music most of the time, I listen to them all by myself. The rest of my family doesn’t like heavy music, that’s why I need headphones to satisfy my desire of sound tripping to some hardcore tunes. I bought this at CD-R King. It’s only 180php. It may be cheap, but the quality is not bad. It comes with a built-in microphone too. I’ve been using it for more than a year already, and it’s still not showing any signs of trouble. God forbid! I don’t have budget for another headphone.

My one and only headphones.

4.) My Fashion Jewelry

I love accentuating my get-up through accessories. I fancy bangles, long-stranded necklaces, dangles and studs. I wear them with the right outfit, of course. For an instance, I don’t wear dangles when I’m wearing a necklace. I match it with studs instead. When I want to flaunt my skin by wearing tank tops, I wear a necklace to somehow tone down the showiness. I also go for simple bling-blings when my out fit has a lot of details. Here is my fashion jewelry box labeled with my pseudonym.

Mystic Nymph Fashion Jewelry Box.

5.) My Planner for 2010-2013

This executive planner from Local Government Academy was supposed to be for my mother. But because she knows that I’m crazy over notebooks and anything to write on, she decided to give this to me. I like it because it helps me keep track of the National Holidays. It also includes all the National Agencies with their addresses and contact information.

My Executive Planner for 2010-2013.

Here are some of my favorite things. Share some of yours too. :-)

Going Bollywood on a Wednesday

Maxine and I decided to have an amateur "photo shoot" to at least ease the mental fatigue we're having because of our thesis. This is indeed a good way to lighten up even a little. This is what you call poise under pressure. This is what three-hour free time can do! Here are some of my shots wearing my favorite get-up:

I love the natural lighting.

Do I look like an Indian?

I wish to wear TOMS instead. :-D

I love this shot. Thanks Max!

Over-sized neck-pieces are my type.

With my friend, Maxine.

With my friend, Lenin.

My outfit:

Knitted Cardigan (Fish)
Tank Top (Secret Possessions)
Bolliwood Skirt (Vintage)
Gladiator Sandals (Parisian)
Over-sized Necklace (SM Dep't Store)

That is what I love about UP. We're free to wear whatever we want. No one would care just as long as you can handle it well. Dressing up is one of my greatest passions. Thanks a lot that we don't have uniforms, I can do it everyday. Thanks for the nice shots Max!

Ultimate Guilty Pleasure: Pizza

Ultimate Guilty Pleasure will be one of my regular features in my blog as well as Katrina's Thought Bubbles. I hope you enjoy them. Today, my ultimate guilty pleasure would be PIZZA! I won't talk about it anymore, cause I know photos would be much more interesting than words.

I love pizza! it's one of the best-tasting creations ever. I just can't get enough of it! I really don't mind pigging out on it. The combination of tomato sauce and cheese on the dough is just so irresistible. As what Liz said in the movie Eat Pray Love, "I'm having a relationship with my pizza!" Let's get the foodnography started..

Calda from Calda Pizza

Calzone from Calda Pizza

Milanese from Calda Pizza

Healthy Combo Pizza from Coco's South Bistro

Lamb Kebab Pizza from Cafe Mediterranean

I've also tried Calda Pizza's Etna, and it's also yummy! It seems like almost all the great pizzas I've had are from the "C" stores. Next stop will be at La Toscana Italian Restaurant, Pizza Pamilya and some other pizzerias at Torres. Pizza Coma! I can't wait to indulge myself with pizza goodness again. How about you? What's your ultimate guilty pleasure?
