Chez Karine Bakery's Muscovado Pudding

Chez Karine Bakery... tons have blogged about them; lots have been said about the food.  So when my little family found ourselves staying a few days at one of the hotels in BGC, I knew we just had to drop by this place and try them out, at least once.

Chez Karine Bakery in Serendra

It was close to 9 that night.  A little late for the Little One (since she's usually fast asleep by 8); but, what the hey!  We were on va/stay-cation and so we let her be.

Crossing the street from our hotel, we decided that a little trek up and down the width of Bonifacio High Street was what we needed to help us relax and unwind more before sleep finally claimed us.  Serenaded by the soothing sounds of various street musicians, we weaved through and/or around the throng; the Little One wide-eyed at being let free to enjoy the nightlife not usually afforded to her.

And as we were heading back, we decided a midnight snack was in order (Oh yes!  The joys of being on vacation!).  Hence, we continued on to Serendra; I with the full intention of finally giving Chez Karine a try.


My companions had a different idea, though.  Unfortunately, the Husband and the Little One were craving for gelato, hence, I was the only one left to try out a Chez Karine concoction.  And my choice?  This creamy, heavenly Muscovado Pudding, selling for Php110.

Dessert in a jar

It comes in such a pretty little bottle.  So pretty, in fact, that I decided to bring it back to our hotel room first for a little photo shoot session (darn those beside reading lights that made the perfect spotlights, too).


After packing away the cam, I settled in happily in front of the wide window seat, savoring, finally, the moment when I could crack open this baby.  Hungry eyes followed my every move; but as seeing both the Husband and the Little One already had more than their fill of gelato, I tucked my prize away from their sight and enjoyed each sinful bite with relish (by my happy lonesome).

Ok... fine... I caved in a little and gave the Little One a few bites.  Just couldn't resist those baby browns of hers (plus it was the only way to stop her crying like a banshee, too).

*sigh*  It was worth the wait.

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!  =)
