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.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
