#SummerFeels Blog Tour: Top 5 Summer Foods featuring Arlene Manocot + Giveaway

Blog Tour for the Summer Feels Anthology is happening. ~ Yay!


The tour has started today! Get ready for the feels. ~


To start off, I will be featuring an author from the anthology.


I’ve met Arlene Manocot in one of the #romanceclass events. She was very accommodating in signing books and she spoke in a soft  voice. But this girl can write heartfelt poems and conjure up a mean fantasy romance story.


In this anthology, she wrote Beachin’ Summer. To get you an idea, here’s what it’s about.


“Beachin’ Summer” 


Childhood friends Summer and Jesse head to the beach after a traumatic incident leaves Jesse in need of a little rest and relaxation. He’s looking forward to catching up on his reading, and while she isn’t as avid a reader, she can’t help but be drawn in by his enthusiasm. When he shares his love of indie-published romance with her, she can’t help but wonder if he might be inspired to turn fictional love into something real.



Sounds intriguing? Better check her story out.~

Well,  since it is summer in our country and we love food, I have asked Arlene for her list of Top 5 Summer Foods to beat the summer heat.

Maybe she’s found the inspiration to write because of these yummy desserts. ☺I know I would.

Arlene said:

My top 5 fave food to beat summer heat, yah!


1. Halo-halo

Specially the one served at a Chinese fast-food chain, I loooove it! It’s so creamy and there’s a lot of going on in your cup. The fast-food chain is so generous when it comes to their fillings. Love it so much!

2. Chocolate ice cream

Who wouldn’t crave ice cream this summer season? I like it and I know it sounds cliche, but it’s my all time favorite flavor. Anything that has chocolate in it, should be edible of course. 

3. Green Kalabaw mango with alamang

Refreshing acid taste from the fruit and the salty alamang, gah! I can eat all day until my lips turn pale. Haha.

4. Watermelon

Sweet and watery taste of watermelon, it’s the perfect alternative thirst buster for a plain water. 

5. Milk tea

Wintermelon and Jasmine are my favorite flavor. And I get at Sediento, it is the place to be whenever I crave for milk tea.


Yum! Everything is so delish, believe me. Summer in the Philippines is scorching. We really need to cool down. Hope you can try these desserts to quench the summer heat.
Thank you to Arlene for sharing with us her Top 5 Summer Foods list. 
Here’s her author info:

Arlene Manocot writes in English and Filipino. Her words dwell in the realms of fantasy, suspense and romance. Aside from writing fiction, she also weaves poems from the endless thread of life. 

Daydreaming is an expensive hobby she’d like to preserve, and putting her thoughts into writing keeps her sane in this world of insanity.
