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.

Sanctuary in a Troubling World

I've been craving to partake Middle-Eastern cuisines lately, and I know only one way to satisfy it -- and that is to head to my ultimate and best loved cafe even without a camera to document my chow adventure. I had my fourth visit at Zabadani Cafe this week. I was with my new food buddies Janice and Jesse. This food haven certainly spells creativity, and I get to experience it every time I dine there. The place just keeps getting better. It always has something new to offer. It never fails to surprise and delight my sight and taste. They've added new accents to the place, new items on the menu, and they also have a custom-made tailoring business now. They're displaying the finished products. Cool, eh? Maximization is indeed key.

I see to it that I get to try different things whenever I have my gastronomical affairs. I want assortment. When the menu was headed to us by Mr. Wadi, I immediately ran my eye on the Beef Kebab portion since I haven't given it a shot just yet. I've already tried Chicken Kabsa, Dajaj Kebab and Syrian Grilled Breast. I don't want to eat the same meal again and again, so I ordered Zab's new dish -- the spicy Kefta (or Kofta) KebabIt's a minced beef meatballs with herbs. I love it that it made my troubles go away for a few minutes. It was really that good. At first I thought it tasted like an ordinary meatballs, but after the second bite, I've realized the difference. It has that distinct flavor I couldn't put into words. Too bad I don't know those terms chefs use in food tasting. By the way, Janice ordered the Syrian Grilled Breast and Jesse had the Beef Squares... again.

I was supposed to order another rice meal after that, but I was convinced by my alter ego to have a beverage instead. The three of us had their famous Layered Mochaccino. We had it served hot rather than blend, despite the scorching heat. Don't get me wrong, Zabadani has good ventilation. I was referring to the weather. Anyway, their Mochaccino tasted more like a chocolate drink to me, probably because I added a lot sugar. It's delicious although I got a bit disappointed because I tossed it off in just a matter of seconds only. My fault! I haven't even savored its goodness entirely. Maybe next time, I should drink it one sip at a time so I can indulge in my Mochaccino moment.

Thanks for making me happy, Zabadani! You will forever be my number one favorite restaurant. Did I just sound like a super fan? I really don't mind. LOL!

What food craving did you satisfy lately?
