My Pink Wasabi

Things are not always what they seem.  Most especially when it comes from My Pink Wasabi.

Sushi?  Guess again.

At first glance, one would think these are savory sushi and maki pieces.  But look a little more closely and you'll find these are actually sweet cakes.

My Pink Wasabi Kashi Makis

Known as Kashi Makis, these hand rolled cakes are decorated and made to look like pieces of sushi and maki.  In a world now dominated by cupcakes, it's quite refreshing to see a totally different take on the ever present cake.  Turning them into these ingenious creations are what adds to their appeal.

A 15 piece tray of My Pink Wasabi's Kashi Makis (Php390) contains an assortment of various cake types. 

One of my personal favorites is the the Ooolong Berry -- an almond cake wrapped in white chocolate strawberry ganache and topped with strawberry-flavored roe/jelly.

Another fave is the Midnight Mint -- a chocolate cake filled with dark mint chocolate ganache and topped with a minty roe/jelly.  Yummy!

Don't you just love a really cool dessert concept?  J

P.S. A word of advice.  Try to eat them fresh.  As like all other cakes, they tend to lose their moistness over long periods in the fridge.

  5. Cool desserts indeed. As they say, eating starts with the eyes and the nose (figuratively of course) Presentation and aroma are like teasers.

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
