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!!!

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hain in Boracay

Aside from being one of the top beaches of the world, Boracay is also known for its diverse food and restaurant choices. And on that note, I'm happy to share that we discovered a newly opened restaurant called- Hain. 

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!
