Uber Yummy Cake

An aunt dragged me to her HS meeting/get-together this afternoon eventhough I suggested that I will just fetch her after the party ends. Actually, it also happens to be the belated birthday celebration of tita Margie (her HS buddy). Truth-be-told, I was a bit apprehensive about this gathering since my aunt is already an SC card holder. Hahaha. But its fun and I mean, F-U-N.

The meeting started a bit formally and they were discussing the venue, food, etc of their Golden Reunion next year. After a few minutes of formal meeting, they started to relieve High School memories such as loveteams (yes, loveteams), terror teachers (which include my mom, God bless her soul), and gossipped about marital problems, etc. And I thought that only we young people gossiped like that! Hahaha

So come dinnertime, they (including me, the youngest of the bunch) gathered at the table to partake a sumptuous meal of Savory chicken, fresh lumpia, pansit, mixed veggies, and a big tub of Nathaniel's buko pandan. I forgot to take photos because I was listening happily to ancient gossips. :D

The the piece de resistance ---- a homemade chocolate ganache cake with caramel and topped with almonds. So, so good! Alas, I had a senior moment episode also because I forgot to ask Tita Arlene for her daughter's number so that (hoping hoping) I can order a whole cake this December.

The cake was not that sweet (maybe tailor-fitted for the party), and super moist. *sigh*  I want another slice!!!

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
