09.24.2013: Anywhere with you

Hello, dolls!! 🙂 It is now December, the most wonderful time of the year! Yay 🙂 I know everyone is just as hyped as I am! But I still can’t believe that we are just less than a month away from welcoming 2014!! It may be too early to think about it now, but there is just so much in store for me for next year…and I am so excited!!!

One thing that I look forward to next year is to have the amazing feeling that I had when A was here for 3 weeks. Everyday seemed like a dream, and we made sure that each day would be an adventure for us. That’s why we didn’t waste any time as soon as he got here! After resting for a couple of hours (though I know he must have this horrible jet lag) we went to Bonifacio Global City for our late lunch. Since he wants to be in sync with the time here in Manila, he decided to sleep on the plane so he would be up all day here. Which, I am glad to say, WORKED!

I didn’t plan anything for his first day here since I was expecting him to be asleep during the morning. I was having a hard time figuring out where to take him on his first day, and I couldn’t think of anywhere else but BGC. He finally saw how horrible traffic here in Manila is, and my driver was getting too stressed out cause he knows it is A’s first day here! But everything turned out perfectly, and he was able to sleep for more than hour,ridiculous cause it shouldn’t take us that long.


I was still uncertain where to bring him when we got to BGC. All I can think about is how we shouldn’t go to a Filipino restaurant cause my Dad wants to bring him to one for dinner. Chinese, though his favorite, is out of the question for his first day! I was thinking that I should try to stay away from it as much as possible since we will be going to Hong Kong for 6 days. And then I recalled how good the pizza in Nolita is.

09.12.13: Brunch lovin’

Hello, dolls!! 🙂 So I’ve been spending a lot of time in our kitchen here at home (yay! the joy having a newly built kitchen). I have so much to share on this blog -food, the awesome 3 weeks of my 2013, and more FOOD! One of the things that I love to do here in Manila is to save a day for a restaurant that I want to try,or sometimes when I’m lucky I get to have another day for a restaurant that I want to go back to. I love dining out and be inspired to “experiment” on something new in the kitchen.

So this happened 12 days before A got here in the Philippines…and obviously I am over 2 months late again 🙁 But, guess what?? this blog will be back on track in no time! Just like how it started! 🙂


My attempt of making this photo cuter than it actually is. I wanna say…#FAIL


Inviting cupcake set-up by the entrance. No one would pass up on a VCB experience once they see this (and this is only 10% of their pretty interior decoration).


Made me regret not buying the cupcake stand that I saw almost 8 months ago that is similar to this 😐




I’ve always adored the pretty chairs in Vanilla Cupcake Bakery. They all look so comfy that will make you want to stay for hours…and order 4 cupcakes!



More cuteness! 🙂


If I can have this set of spoon and fork without making my future husband look gay…I would buy a set pronto!

VCB just proved to me that they can show “cute” in every way! 🙂


Eggs and Biscuit

Cause I love biscuits (and I kind of wish that we have Popeye’s here — I can already see A giving me that look haha)

And..and cause…I love home fires for breakfast..or potatoes.yes, potatoes (I am crazy about potatoes)

Lastly, EGGS! I can have egg anytime of the day (breakfast food for dinner?? AWESOME!)

(So yeah…that was the fatty inside of me talking!!)


I was very happy with my order! Although I wish the biscuits were bigger…just like Popeye’s. Haha


Yes kids, they have 94 cupcake flavors!! #Heaven



I was stuffed by the time we finished. So I passed on having a cupcake for dessert.

Anyway, I really wanted to go there to try their food! 🙂


So good to finally see my SDF after almost 3 years 🙂 It was an afternoon full of laughter and realizations <3


Almost there! 🙂
