ToT Now Published on unBLOGGED!

Normally, I've been a flaker whenever invited to blogger events and activities. I'd love to attend and support our local blogsphere scene but sometimes my schedule is really working against me. I was working with Nuffnang on collaboration after collaboration and it never seemed to pan out. Finally, something I can contribute!
Trip or Treats is now published on PhilStar's unBLOGGED section! I'm glad to be part of a group that can speak their minds openly and be viewed by readers of The Philippine Star's online portal. Catch a fresh post every Friday from a handful of bloggers in the Metro.

Thanks Trixie :)


Mommy & Me Munching Around Copenhagen

Whenever the family travels, we normally take separate flights to just to stay on the safe side, in the event of a catastrophe. Interestingly enough, I usually arrive a day or two before everyone else, and stay longer for a couple of days. You would think that with three older brothers one of them would take the role of the sacrificial lamb, but clearly the family figured out that you can throw ToT anywhere and I would survive... plus some travel memories.
This time, I had the chance to spend some R&R with my mom, otherwise known as ESF. We see each other on a daily basis because we work together, plus I'm still a boarder at their abode. We're not the 'how's your day' type of mother/daughter because of proximity and pressures at work, so it's always a privilege whenever I get to spend some Mommy & Me time, preferably away from Manila and at a place with a ton of shopping.
We stayed at the Copenhagen Plaza Hotel, which is right across the Central Train Station and a stone's throw from all the major sights in the city.


Crepe ala Pandekager (aka Pancake-Bike)

Crepes are, what I would call, the ultimate mobile munchie; easy as a sandwich, tasty as a slice of pizza, and portable as an ice cream cone.
Introducing the Pancake Bike
The crepe is made even cooler when its made to order, to your fancy, from a 3-wheel tricy-cart. It appeals to me even more because this is probably the only bicycle contraption I would be comfortable pedaling. No 2-wheelers for me. No need to look for a place to grab dessert, let dessert come to you.
Loitering around the busy shopping streets of Stroget in Copenhagen is another example of Copenhagenization at its yummiest: Introducing the Pandekager, otherwise known as the PancakeBike. There are about 4 PancakeBikes around the city, each calling out to your sweet tooth and your pocket change.


Danish Smorrebrod at Aamann's Deli

After Copenhagenization, another Copenhagen claim to fame is the impeccably fresh and thoughtful Nordic cuisine. The focus of its dishes is an emphasis of the best local produce, detailed preparation, and a generous use of herbs. 
For those who want a little taste-test of Nordic food, it is imperative to have a Smorrebrod lunch.
My friend Macy recommended I try Aamann's for their delicious food, but since the Establishment was closed (we were very late for lunch), we ended up at the Take Away location right beside the restaurant. When I told my Danish friend Thomas about it, he said : GOOD CHOICE. So I must have the right set of friends.


Copenhagenization: On Bikes & Boats

There are two great ways to go about exploring the sleek and green city of Copenhagen. One is through its canals via boat, kayak or waterbus; the other method requires only 2 wheels and is featured on its own CNN special segment.
Copenhagenization is innovating the transportation system of this metropolis via urban planning to encourage more Danes to bicycle their way around town instead of drive around in gas guzzlers. over 55% of Danish citizens use their bicycles on a daily basis. And since this is a young city, many parents cart their children around in cargo bikes.
It's such a future-forward approach to city-living that CNN's Business 360 featured it as one of its Future Cities. Interestingly enough, while I was in Copenhagen recently, this episode was playing on the tube, which explained why everyone and their mother's mother was biking around town.
It's a convenient, environmentally sustainable, and healthy way to travel around this small city, and this lady proves that it can be a stylish mode of transportation as well.
