Major Cupcake Competition

Major Cupcake Competition

Since my post on my DIY Red Velvet cupcakes from Sprinkles, I’ve gotten a lot of queries (can I have some?), responses (why didn’t I get one?), and challenges (my cupcake is better than yours!) regarding the frosted mini-cake. So much so that the competition ran too close to home. I got home the other night at...
Finding Comfort in Cheese and Cibo

Finding Comfort in Cheese and Cibo

I need to put my Hong Kong posting on hold. Just for a bit. After a string of busy days, crazy events, and being pulled here, there and literally almost everywhere, I really needed some comfort. Actually, I needed a lot of it. Something familiar and something that always hits a spot. I ended up in Greenbelt 5...
HK Holiday, Part Deux

HK Holiday, Part Deux

After the first family day in HK town and a night of debauchery, vodka and Tsui Wah, my bro and I woke up at the unreasonable hour of 2pm! Sheesh. But come on, who wouldn’t want to wake up to a view as beautiful as this one?? One of the perks of staying at the Parklane...
Touring the Queen City with Cebu Trip

Touring the Queen City with Cebu Trip

Inasmuch as I travel back and forth to Cebu every so often, and am very familiar with their food, I am admittedly ignorant about the culture and history of Cebu. So when Mr. S and my make-up artist friend Cay tagged along for Cebu’s Sinulog festivities, I decided to tour them around town. Not myself, exactly. I...
HK Holiday, Part Uno

HK Holiday, Part Uno

It’s been about half a year since the inception of this blog… when it all started when I had a vacation with my entire family at a resort in beautiful Bohol. Since it was the holiday season we strategized, as stress-inducing and patience-trying planning a fam vacation was, we needed another family outing. We did it again, and we...
My Christmas Treats and Trip

My Christmas Treats and Trip

This Christmas, oddly enough, felt like it came too late. I wasn’t really feeling the Christmas spirit til I entered the malls in search of last minute gifts. Maybe it’s about growing up and instead of being the excited kid awaiting presents, I am now the unexcited godmother and gift giver extraordinaire. But on the...
DIY Sprinkles Cupcakes!!!

DIY Sprinkles Cupcakes!!!

I’m having a bit of trouble lately… Call it hormones or the color blue… I am in dire need of comfort. And what do I do when in such desperation? You already know I like to eat so that was a giveaway. But another form of therapy that feels sooo much better than the retail...
Mr. Jones aaaaand Me...

Mr. Jones aaaaand Me…

I literally woke up from deep slumber right now, even after taking copious amounts of sleeping pills. I guess once I must write, its come hell or high water. It’s OK though, as I’m writing about one of my ultra-fave restos so far: Mr. Jones. Do you remember that Counting Crows song with the same moniker? Shalalalalalalaaaah…. uhuhhh. Anyway, it...
