Lollipop for my baby, hey it smells like Christmas!

Did you see malls around you with inviting lights all around. Even feeling the excitement of Christmas soon to come? Well, for me yes and somewhat sad at the same time because my family will not be complete as hubby won't be able to come and visit us here in the Philippines. But anyway, keeping aside that thought, I just wanted to compliment on this candy and snack bar which is inside the mall of Makati City.

See the eyes of my little one tempted to taste what that big lollies are up to? Well, you can't resist sweets at times especially if you have a sweet tooth. Well, these lollies are also great Christmas decors to include but just don't expect that if some sweet tooth monster took it by surprise. Well, I guess it makes kids happy when they see hanging lollies in Christmas tree or any ornament in the house that you would decor for this holiday season. Can you now feel this season of hope and love? Well, hopefully everyday is love day for all of us.

Yummy Fresh Lumpiang Sariwa

This is one of the food that I have missed to taste for so long. I really don't know yet how to make fresh lumpiang sariwa as I don't know how to make a perfect crepe for this recipe. I went along with my family to visit Goldilocks where they serve also fresh lumpiang sariwa. I have missed their lumpiang sariwa for so long. So when we had the time to go there, we didn't skip the opportunity to order this delicious meal.

We also ordered pancit guisado (sauteed bean thread noodle) and their kalderetang baka which my mom used to order. Then we had ube-macapuno cake for our dessert. It is just affordable and for us it was really a fun filled day eating out with our loved ones and bonding also of our family.

I also like their rice cakes (puto) but at that time we did not order that. My tummy was happy when we got home. At least, before going back again to India I was able to experience to eat fresh lumpiang sariwa.

Porter Steak Anyone?

Step out of the comfort zone and I was with family for bonding time and was able to relax a bit. To worry is never a good way to our body so spend some time to eat out and dine with the family. We had porter steak and took so long when I happen to taste this again as we don't have this restaurant in India.
I don't happen to see shops selling beef cuts that is good for steak. Yes, there are beef meat stalls in our place but the problem is that they don't cut on portions like where is the softest part of the meat or if you happen to ask for the sirloin, they don't know it too.
Anyway, this streak was just great, not too rubbery although the only thing I can say is that the bottom part was a bit smokey in taste. The rice was sticky and buttery in taste. The gravy was not that great as it was too watery in consistency.
The meat was just well done, although the side dish was not fascinating at all and lacks a lot of inspiration to make it even more colorful contrasting the color of yellow which is obviously the only thing you can easily notice when they handed you the sizzling plate.

I-Cake Anyone?

I thought it was ice cream cake, but anyway the icons itself was there, good for Ipod or Ipad or smart phone people who will really enjoy this kind of cake design. But it was made of mocha and it was good for the taste for a very affordable price too.

What I do like was the freebies given by the cake shop because they have given us enough for the cake topper, some sprinkles and a very tasty sponge cake(mamon) during the time that I purchase the cake for my son's special day.

It was 8x12 in size, mocha flavor and also affordable. It made our family happy as I share it also with my loved ones abroad when they see the cake and the sweet dessert I also bought from the same shop. But I was not happy much about the cathedral gelatin that I bought. It just didn't passed my palate (just my own taste okay), no offense to the shop. It would have been better if they have infused some sweet taste and not too hard on it.

October as Month of Birthday Celebrations..

I was happy that this month is almost over as the birthdays of my niece has come and also for my son's birthday. I was really busy to look for ways to get money so that I can at least give them a happy birthday celebration.

Well, anyway, this is already a bridge over troubled water, I may not think of it at all and just go back to reality and look for other ways now. I do love birthdays and parties and celebrations. I thanked God for another year that He has been faithful to our family as He is the source of everything we have.

I do love to share this delicious pancit (bean-thread noodles) with buko pandan as dessert and ice cream and cake and biko (sweet gluten rice). I was thinking of making some pica-pica but to my dismay, most of the visitors I invited did not come, so I did not bother to prepare it at all. I will just cherish the goodness of God in our family and will not be worrying about those who did not come and celebrate this special occasion with us. May the month of November come with a special way with us all.
