The Joy of Estrel

Now that I have a lot of time to kill, I am trying to experience the things that I’ve always wanted to try. And one of those things is this uuubbbeeerrr famous home-made, baked-fresh-on-the-day-you-pick-them-up cake from Estrel’s.

I’ve been told some good stories about this shop and their best seller caramel cake, in as much as I’ve read soooooooo many good reviews about the store online. Finally, after quite sometime, nahanap rin naman ang puno’t dulo ng chismis na ito and got down to the bottom of it – which is, magpa-reserve ng cake. Hahahaha.

Tip: If you try your luck by going there straight, in the hopes of getting a cake for yourself, WAG NA. All cakes are made-to-order. So you’ll find name tags on each and every cake on the shelf. Makakabili ka lang ng cookies siguro, but never a cake without a reservation.

All in all, it was a nice experience. Masarap. Indeed, what a wonderful way to celebrate six joyful months of being married. To celebrate the monthlong birthday celebration ni Pao. My time off from work and a whole lot of other things in between. Estrel’s Caramel Cake definitely met my expectations. AhhhhLoveEat….


Incidentally, the contact person of Estrel’s is named JOY. Yun!

The Longest Weekend... Eveeerrr...

Today marks the start of a really llllloooooooonnnngggggg weekend for me. Exaggerated ang long because it actually started last night, Saturday, September 13 and will end on September 28, Sunday. Ganyan siya kahaba, literal na long. Yahooooo..

I’m quite excited ecstatic. In fact, I’ve been dying to have this long break. I’ve been working my ass off since 2001 and I’ve never had a break this long. The most I had was five days (including holidays pa yun), but this one is different. As in ten straight working days. Salamat sa mandatory leave ng bangko! Whoever thought of this rule should be worshipped. I-hu-hug kita ng sobra!!! Sobrang salamat talaga. Hahaha.

So what are my plans? Originally, I planned to go to the beach. Pero kamusta naman at bumabagyo. A few weeks ago, some friends were asking me to join them in Macau – the hottest destination this season. Napaisip ako, but then I realized expired na ang passport ko! Hahaha. At madaming madami pang plans – mag-aral ng photography, mag drive at pumila finally sa LTO for my license, maghanap ng maayos na multimedia school at maging fab. I’ve thought of a lot of things to do in the next ten days of freedom. Sobrang dami, I couldn’t fit each and everything in sa loob ng sampung araw. Na-realize ko, it is not really enough. Damn! Hahaha. Arte.

Kilala niyo ako, I am a planner. Gusto ko nakaayos lahat ng bagay. Organized and neatly mapped sa aking calendar. Tme is gold. I don’t like to waste my time thinking of what to do next – dapat sunud sunod na sila. On time and on schedule. That’s how I’ve always been.

But for some strange reason, this time, naisip kong mag-iba naman. For a change. So I dropped my list. Decided not to think about anything. No plans. No to-do lists to think of. For a change, gusto kong maging random. Spontaneous. And see what actually happens…

The OCD part of me is scared but the better part of myself is actually excited.. Eto na ang bakasyon… Go!!!!!
