Michael Jackson and the Brownie Factory

Watched Charlie and the chocolate Factory yesterday. The movie was really good... Fun to watch (especially the Oompah-loompahs' musical numbers, hahaha...) I was seated beside Mela (my life in a box), who (I think) was hyperventilating when Charlie finally found the last golden ticket (don't worry, she survived the rest of the movie ;P), and behind us was a group of grandmothers, who were reacting to every fucking thing that happened in the movie
Grandmother 1: Ay, mabait kasi si Charlie eh...
Grandmother 2: Gwapong bata pa, ano?
Grandmother 3: Ay, ayan na! ayan na! Tanggalin mo na yung wrapper Charlie, bilis!
(short silence) ay... wala pa ring golden ticket?
Gotta tell you though, their reactions were as funny as they were annoying...

Johnny Depp was also really creepy as Willy Wonka. Two words: Michael Jackson.

------------------------------------------------

I used to buy these brownies in the cafe inside Aristo in La Salle. Those brownies were awesome!!! They were really fudgy, it's like you're biting into a brownie that was 90% chocolate fudge... yum... For some reason though, they stopped selling it some months ago. I probably shouldn't tell you, but I mourned that for about a week (the same way that I mourned when Tubby's raised the price of their Mocha Mud Pie to P150), and every time I pass by Aristo, I'd always come in and check if they had those brownies for sale again. They never did. Sometimes, when I think about it, I still feel kinda... sad and... empty.

Or at least until I got a taste of Sugarhouse's chocolate brownie, woohoo! Out of all the brownies I've tasted, this is the only one that comes close to the taste (and it's also like biting into a brownie that's 90% chocolate fudge. )




I gotta say, those brownie are so good it makes me want to write something in metaphors.
