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

trying thai cuisine for the first time

We made a stop at the South Luzon Tollway on our way back from Tagaytay last year to eat lunch. We decided to try Thai cuisine for the first time and checked out Sakon Thai Restaurant and Noodle House just across Chowking, were we made a quick stop to buy the little man his favorite Pancit Canton meal. We settled for an order of their Seafood Hot Basil {Php255}, Beef Red Curry {Php205} and Jasmine Rice {Php35 for 2 orders}.

While waiting for our order and keeping watch of the little man who simply cannot wait to dig into his lunch, I made a quick survey of the restaurant and took some snaps. The place has a charming air about it and I really love the ambiance. They also have a display cabinet by the window, where they are selling some lovely wears, which I am presuming were also from Thailand. There are beautiful cloth products, beads, and lovely and interesting Buddha images. No, I did not see a taylor 110e guitar case displayed anywhere, but may I just note that the place is also playing interesting Thai music to get everyone into the vibe.

After a few minutes our orders finally arrived. The aroma of the delicious food wafting into our noses is just enough to make us even more hungry. I am not too fond of curry, but surprisingly I really enjoyed their Beef Red Curry. This curry sure tasted very different from the usual curry dishes that we normally have. I also love the seafood dish. Sure was a bit spicy, but it was something I absolutely enjoyed! After our meal, we also had a free taste of a native Thai dessert called Taco, which tasted so much like our local maja blanca with a lot of coconut milk! I just love it, i wish there was more!

All in all, our very first Thai cuisine experience is something really enjoyable and I cannot wait to do it again. 🙂
