gavino’s japanese doughnuts

food musings, donuts, foodie finds

I was able to sample these gooey and chewy Gavino’s Japanese donuts when I attend last year’s Blogapalooza and I must say I really fell in love with its delicious taste. It is not your usual donut and it also comes in a bevy of exciting and new flavor, like sourcream, for example. Unfortunately, I was not able to come across a Gavino’s Donuts branch and I was not able to try the other variants and flavors they have available. I would’ve really loved to sample their Mochi donut varieties.

According to their Facebook Page, Gavino’s have already opened numerous branches around the metro, including the one at Trinoma. Hopefully they will also open one nearby so I can get to taste their delicious donuts again without having to travel very far. These delectable donuts would make a great partner for a hot cup of coffee, especially when I am working in the wee hours of the morning, finishing work deadlines and other stuff online, like this post about rgb3c, for instance! 🙂

Alaska Crema’s Merry Cremas Food Bazaar

foodie adventure, foodie events

We went to the Alaska Crema’s Merry Cremas Food Bazaar last December. It was actually unplanned and unaccepted as I only happened to meet a dear blogger friend in an earlier event {my godchild’s first birthday party at McDonald’s ~ Eton} who happened to be going there, too. It was also coincidence that another blogger friend who was inviting people to the said event gave me the go signal to go. We do not have anything planned for that afternoon, plus the little man has not been to Libis, so I happily agreed.

The Merry Cremas Food Bazaar was held at the open park of Eastwood Mall in Libis. The delicious event, sponsored by Alaska Crema, featured a number of food sellers, suppliers and independent online food shops, who joined together to showcase their delicious wares in one delectable event. Each booth featured a bevy of mouth-watering dishes up for sale and free tasting, too. I was able to sample this chewy and yummy Nutella rocks from Baked Bites and I loved it!

There were simply a lot of interesting stuff to much on and to see, and one of those were these lovely Minion-topped cupcakes.The little mans was such a big Minion fan and he really enjoyed looking at these colorful creations. Too bad we were not able to get a box or two, as we were not able to explore a bit more, especially when the little man declared he was tired and sleepy.

I was not able to take a photo of each of the booths and their food displays as by time we got back to the place after strolling and getting some refreshments, the little man was already a bit grumpy and would not budge from a corner where he was comfortably sitting. Probably tired from the children’s party we have attended earlier, I indulged him by sitting in that corner to relax. But just to give you an idea, here is the list of food exhibitors at the said event and yes, they do offer free sample by simply presenting this card. Too bad, I was not able to hop on to each booth and claim my sample. Continue reading
