Practice Lang :)

February 24, 2013

Ate Ramona, my gorgeous cousin from France, celebrated her birthday here in the Philippines. Actually, she had tons of birthday parties organized by her loving friends so she reserved her special day just for us, family members. We had lunch at Gloria Maris, Greenhills.

And because daughter will celebrate her birthday a day after, naki-pose na rin sya sa Hello Kitty cake. Hahaha.

I love how nice the Hello Kitty cake was done. The cake was made by Teacher Cake. :)





And there's a story behind the Hello Kitty cake. I think it was originally Carmina's (cousin) cake but since she's forever on a diet, she gave it to Ola as a Valentine's Day present. Ola just loves Hello Kitty and hearts.

Imagine Carmina's surprise when Ola brought out the cake, and said that its just been sitting on the fridge since V-Day. Uh oh! Is it still edible? Ola said she didn't have the heart to eat (murder) Hello Kitty. *sniff *

So after a lot of finger-pointing on who will knife Hello Kitty (Us, girls doesn't want to do the deed) so it was Paolo and hubby who happily knifed Hello Kitty. They beheaded Hello Kitty first. Sorry, no photos. So sad!

The cake was still surprisingly edible but almost dry. I was the only one who took a brave bite then Ola mentioned that we should've kept the cake intact until her birthday on November. O-kay ... I think the fondant will last that long but not the cake.

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.
