life is sweet but life is sweeter with chocolates…
i am not a chocolatey person, i don’t love chocolates, and i dont even crave for it.
yes that’s the truth.
however, i still eat, buy, and share it if i have one.
y do everybody loves sokoleyt (this is how my lola pronounce it)?
so aside from the people who claimed to have sweet tooth (excuse nila yan… hehe), here are some reasons y people love it:
studies show that it is a:
1. cultural habit – we are used of receiving and giving chocolates as a present to our loved ones, friends, etc.
2. chemical reactions – chocolates makes us feel good. yun na yun.
so ayan, probably its human nature to love chocolates.
i remember when i was a kid, chocolates are considered pleasures. ganun katindi ang pananaw ko sa tsokolate. i even thought that its a ‘pangmayaman’ thing.
brands like toblerone, hershey’s, cadbury, ferrero are the first things that come to my mind when it comes to chocolates. funny though, dahil noon, kapag binigyan ka ng jowa jowahan mo o manliligaw mo ng mga ganitong chocolate, bonggang bonggang haba na ng hair mo. wel of course, they match it with flowers di ba?
may mga advantages naman daw ang pagkain ng chocolates, one is that, it is anti-cancer. since it is made from cacao which according to studies, it has high anthocyanin that gives anti-oxidants to the body. and anti-oxidants prevents cancer. o db?
so ayan ok lang kumain ng sokoleyt wag lang sobra coz it myt lead you to diabetis naman. kaunting yngat lang.
so here are some of my cacao shots taken at SM Megamall, in an exhibit where we also participated.
ayan, if you want to see more of this just visit SM Megamall, Building B, Megatradehall 3. the exhibit runs August 27-30, 2009.
you can also visit me here if you want, hehe! nasa PhilRice booth lang po ako nun. hehe… yun lang.
have a fruitful weekend!
