Cravings For Puto Bumbong Satisfied!


I am very fond of the Filipino kakanin and  have been craving for puto bumbong for ages now. I was disappointed that I was not able to get some during the Christmas season when these are always available in front of local churches, a popular dessert to eat after hearing Christmas masses.

I thought I had to wait until December to taste the gooey goodness of this local delicacy, it is a good thing we managed to grab some at Via Mare during our visit to Kidzania in February. It was yummy as expected and I should’ve ordered more for takeaway. Via Mare added an interesting twist to the flavor we’ve grown to love by adding a generous amount of grated cheddar cheese to the purple treat, for only Php15. Aside from the regular cheese, you can also opt  for a sprinkle of grated queso de bola as toppings, just add Php23.

I absolutely loved it and it is making me crave for some now that I am writing about it! 😀  What is your favorite local kakanin?

Dining At Little Chalet

this is the only photo of the food we managed to snap that day.

This new resto at Robinsons Place Malolos captivated the little one’s attention the very first time we passed by it. I think he got excited with the unique and colorful set up of the place and associated it with those fun and enjoyable play places for kids that he love to frequent.

The place sure does have a very fresh and interesting set up, as instead of just tables and chairs that we normally find in regular restaurants, Little Chalet has little rooms where diners can eat with their family and friends in privacy. Each room also come in beautiful colors that are such an eye candy to little kids.

We went there afternoon of New Year’s day and even when there are a lot of customers around that time, I am relieved we only got to wait for a couple of minutes to be seated. We were motioned to occupy the lovely yellow room downstairs {yes, there are more rooms in the mezzanine}.  Continue reading

The sweetest surprises come in the most unexpected circumstances.

Doug Kramer—a player in the Philippine Basketball Association who is known as GlobalPort Batang Pier’s power forward—revealed last January 31, 2016 his biggest surprise yet for his wife, Chesca Garcia-Kramer.

Chesca is a known actress, social media icon and mother to Kendra, Scarlet and Gavin. The family is widely known in the country as ‘Team Kramer.’

According to Ned Bandojo, Head of Marketing of Red Ribbon, Doug took his Valentine’s Day surprise to Chesca to new romantic heights by proclaiming his love for his wife via a 40 by 60 ft billboard along C5 BagongIlog Bridge in Pasig City.

“Doug found a very unusual way of showing his love for Chesca, and it is something beyond imaginable,” Bandojo said. “We, his Red Ribbon family, are really glad to be part of Doug’s pre-Valentine’s Day surprise to Chesca because this only shows how the brand complements Valentine’s. We hope that, together with our Valentine’s Black Forest cake, we were able to bring in more sweetness to their relationship and to the whole family as well.”

Red Ribbon—one of the leading bakeshop chains in the Philippines—is set to launch on February 12, 2016 its Valentine’s Black Forest Cake, a limited edition heart-shaped variant that’s made with rich chocolate, fluffy cream and juicy cherries.

The Valentine’s Black Forest Cake allows couples to rekindle their sweetest memories on Valentine’s Day. If you want to surprise your loved one with something different just like what Doug did to Chesca, then Red Ribbon’s limited edition offering is the right one for you,” Bandojo said.

He concluded, “Surprises may come in different ways, forms and times, but it’s always for the right reason—it’s to show how much couples mean to each other.”

You can also make your loved ones’ Valentine’s day sweeter with Red Ribbon Valentine Black Forest cake which will be available from 12 to February 14, 2016.
