Sweets from my sweets!

So I chose a baduy title. 😛

But hey! I think it’s sweet when people give me food. Except when they obviously can’t finish it anymore and they think I’m a trashbin. :\

These are some of the desserts given to me by family and friends this 2012 captured via Instagram.

1 First Baker Silvanas from birthdaymate Ava. These came from Nueva Ecija. It’s not so sweet and the creaminess is just right. Hindi nakaka-uta. Ang sarap. sana available rin ito sa Manila. Bibili ako ng isang truck.

2 Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans from bespren #2 Alex. If you are familiar with the Harry Potter series, you would know that there are beans that are delightful like those flavoured marshmallow or licorice, and there are those that will make you turn green like snot or earwax. Sa Sg yata nabili ito.

3 J.Co Donuts from Ate D. Though my donut of choice will always be Krispy Kreme’s Original Glazed, I cannot binge on it when “needed” (depressd, pms-ing, or with takaw friends) because it’s just too sweet. J.Co donuts is better for those like me who likes dessert but do not like super sweet stuff. My binge-donut of choice is AlCapone. It has white Belgian chocolate and almonds. I also like Berry Spears and Avocado Dicaprio. Not only because of the names but because masarap. Anobeh.

4 Royce’ Fromage Blanc from Pastora Jan. Nakaka-adik itong white chocolate potato chips na ito. I love the sweet-salty combo. I wish someone would come up with a cheaper version of this. Magandang ipang-regalo ito.

5 Bibingkang Kanin and Suman sa Lihiya from my Mama and Tita Nida. My mom and her besty always make these native cakes when there are special occassions. These are also the usual pasalubong I give my friends. I am not fond of kakanin, but these two have made it to my nomnom-list.

6 Espasol from Atty. Argel. He calls this world class espasol from the Guimba Espasol Dream Team. It’s less sweet and it’s chewier than the ones from Laguna. Masarap ito i-pares sa matapang na kape.

7 Cibo Tiramisu from my archenemy Dave. Hands down, my most favorite dessert (after leche flan) is tiramisu. Cibo’s is one of my most faves even if its texture is… flaky. Their Mango Panna Cotta (yep, that yellow orange stuff over there was just so-so.

8 Mary Grace Cafe’s Grilled Ensaimada from my fellow-triad member Carlo. I’m including it here even if it tastes savory because it also tastes sweet (duh). Eat this with their Tsokolate Eh. Or is it Ah? Basta, the hot tablea hot beverage. Perfect for rainy evenings.

9 Ferrero Kusschen from kapatid na Joel. Chocolate covered hazelnuts from Germany that my bro bought in Singapore. Hehe, labo. My friend Katharina told me that kusschen means kisses. Mwaaaah to bro for giving me these. Peyborit ko ang hazelnuts!

10 Turones (mini turon) from Jolly Jeep na nilibre ng hindi ko na maalala kung sinong teammate ko. This is my favorite merienda. I like to pair this with lomi. Cheap thrill. Ten pesos lang itong turones, 5 pieces.

11 Abe’s Sikreto ni Maria from Babe Homer. This is very easy to make. It’s just suman topped with vanila ice cream and bucayo and served with ripe mangoes. I am thinking of making this for media noche (kung sipagin, probably not, nyahaha). I will add buco strips and sago.

12 Starbucks Truffle Cheesecake from Shani Black. Hah. This is probably the best cake in Starbucks. Hello, truffle na, cheesecake pa. Self explanatory na dapat, di’ba? :p  Shani and I call this “non-metaphorical celebratory cake”. Please don’t ask why.

I’m positive that 2013 will bring more desserts. Friends, don’t fail me. Hehe!

Thanks for feeding me and making me fat! 🙂 We’re all in this together. :p

Bunny Family Night

image

The first bunny family of the year was held in Greenbelt last night. Dinner was at the newest (?) branch of Sumo Sam. I was already full from my McDo dinner in the office so I just had tofu miso soup and chicken teriyaki salad. I wish I just had unagi and the pomelo shrimp salad that Joko and Kwe had though. ^_^

I gave them special gifts pero hindi ko pwedeng sabihin kung ano yun. Basta laughtrip ang reactions nila! 😀

Dessert was at Pinkberry. They had watermelon yogurt with cheesecake, Heath bar and blueberries. I chose mango yogurt with strawberries and cheesecake bits. I liked it. 🙂

I got hungry again and I asked if we can go to McDo. Shempre, supportive naman sila sa katakawan ko! I wanted another cheeseburger meal again. There, we were entertained by this kid named Marco- a highschool looking boy who picked a fight with one of the young customers. Ewan ko sa kanila. Mukha ngang hindi pa mga tuli. Bwahahaha! Arrogant rich kids. Tsk tsk tsk.

Buti pa kami well behaved. And cute. And cuddly. Hahahaha!

True. I love my bunny family. 🙂

The Mouse, The Vulture, G and I

As I was done with the Project Management exercise in our company’s annual management conference, I started doodling and drew a…


mouse.

Yes, my hatest hatest hatest hatest mammal. But, oh well, I find this very easy to draw. And, admit it. It’s sort of cute.

G saw the mousey and drew this…

He said his ostrich would eat my mouse.

Being the very professional, quite mature lady that I am, I told him, “Your ostrich looks like a vulture! Panget!!!!!!”

G retaliated by putting me on the hideous looking bird.

So I shot him a murderous glare.

I guess making himself animal-food was his form of apology, eh?

And yes, his nickname is Gio.

Goodie! Drawing is fun!



That’s G (for Giacomo/Gio), Boss V and I.
