I have been ordering cakes from Lani M. Garcia for several years now. I like ordering from her because she is creative. Her cakes and cupcakes always look really beautiful and each order is always unique. Most especially, I like how her pastries are not overly priced. I also like that her place is very near from where I live. It's only at Lahug and very convenient (for me) for pick-up of my orders.
If there is one thing that should never stop, it should be learning. In my Words from the Wise post, Teddy Locsin Jr said, "The one who travels fastest are the ones who travel lightest. Take more knowledge. It's the lightest and most useful baggage." I couldn't agree more. Knowledge is a powerful weapon. This is why we invest on reading books and traveling. We seek to expand our horizon.
Last year 2012 (... I will have to get used to that from now on. LOL), I was able to borrow the galvanic spa of my close friend, Esther, for a month. It was also the time when my aunt from US came home for vacation. Of course, being the good niece as I am, I gave her my special NuSkin facial - face lift and galvanic spa treatment. She loves it. ^_^
It has been a tradition of the family to hold reunion every first day of the year. We usually hold our reunion at our grandma's ancestral home at Ramos. Because we have grown so many, the old ancestral home can no longer accommodate us. Since last year, we started holding our reunion at the only function place that opens on New Year day, JSU Mariners Court. It is a little pricey but we are very satisfied of the place especially because it is equipped with wifi.
On 2009, I received a Christmas gift from my best girl buddy, Gay, a box of delicious lace cookies. I love it so much that I began to examine the box. The box contains the number and some details. I've been ordering from Sweet Stuff by Jill Christie Uy ever since. I have not met Jill yet but she has been accommodating and replies to my inquiries all the time. She is also a co-Zugbuana sister of my close friend Rosel so I trust her.
Café Georg is a restaurant that I always get to pass by on my way home. From the outside, it looks too sophisticated and expensive that you shy away from dining in. Well, here are the facts. It is indeed sophisticated even on the inside BUT it is not overly expensive that it is no longer affordable. Café Georg is a small restaurant maybe around 10 tables only. It has a function room though that is maybe good for a maximum of 25 people. The numbers are only based on my own estimate.
After doing our groceries at Banilad Town Center, we went around looking at the shops. I went to playpen while Mc went to wonder at Republiq. This weird-looking but colorful shoes somehow caught his attention. Weird-looking because it looks like crumpled paper. Colorful because it has a bright but matte feel on the colors. It comes in yellow (my favorite), purple, pink (my other favorite hehe), green, sky blue colors among many others. When he came inside and touched it, it indeed felt like paper but also felt not like it because it felt strong. I too was curious as he introduced it to me.
