I love any kind of JELLY--candy, cakes etc. you name it, I'm a sucker for this translucent, magical dessert!! How I wish there's a Yorimichi here. :O

Our local version is called "Cathedral Windows". My lola makes it all the time with chunks of fruit.

Water Candy

WATER CANDIES!! from Ameya Eitaro Japan, these come in rose, grapefruit, rasberry and strawberry flavors. Yes, you use it as a lip gloss and then you can eat it!

Ilocos Empanada

Last weekend, my family and I went to the beach which is 12 hours away from Manila by car! (It was worth it.) It's located at Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte at the tip of our island. If you've heard of Boracay in Aklan, that's NOTHING compared to this amazing beach. :p

This is what you call an Ilocos empanada. It's kinda like a calzone, with fried egg, vegetables and Vigan Longganisa(native sausage with LOTS of garlic) all mixed in together, with sukang Ilocos(native vinegar that tastes super strong and pungent) REALLY YUMMY.


Gone to Treffpunkt with the hubby for schublig and bratwurst, it's bangers and mash for dinner!! :)


Muscovado Cupcakes

Just made some Toblerone and muscovado(native brown sugar) cupcakes. :D


Hmm I wish a box of Laduree macarons would suddenly appear on my lap.

all sorts

My favorite classic typeface of all time... I want this brooch. :/
