Our Sweet Escape…


Our Sweet Escape…

I forgot to mention that aside from blueberry cheesecake. I’ve always loved cream puffs and eclairs. There is one bakeshop (Lindens) in our place that supplies them to me at those craving times, or if sadness creeps in and the least I could do to forget (temporarily) the gloomy feeling is to splurge in all the sweetness that I can get.

Way back college days, my best friend then introduced me to this shop in Greenbelt (Dulcinea) from which we often enjoyed our churros dipped in hot chocolate and we never leave the place without having our bags of cream puffs, eclairs and beehives on our hands, being our favorites. At that time, we are also eyeing a cute waiter from there, until later we discovered, he was a gay. And that’s another story.(–,)

A few days ago, missing a meeting. One of my closest buddy opted to bring me to Palanca street, Makati to introduce to me to this cozy shop that sells all the goodies that I have mentioned. They were her favorites too. Not to mention that earlier during lunch, we had blueberry cheesecake for dessert. Sweets overload in just one day? Cravings like this happens not too often… Sugar rush that is!

A tree shaped by those baby cream puffs!

And so, this is it. It’s called “Happy cream puff”. Knowing that I like cream puffs and eclairs, she had mentioned this to me several times and this is the only chance we’ve got to visit the place.

Smaller versions of their cream puffs…

What I liked about it is that it’s not too sweet. And the custard isn’t too overwhelming like the others that I’ve tried. Another element which impressed me is that the custard isn’t there yet. Upon ordering, it’s the only time that they will fill the puffs. So in sync with what they boasts of their items’ freshness.

Comes in different flavors too..=)

They have flavored fillings too. They also come in box which is ideal as gifts. The box I brought home was actually a gift from my buddy. And its my turn on our next visit. =)

The shop started since 2006 with just these 2 major offerings. The cream puffs and the eclairs. You must try them yourself to validate why they’ve been here for almost a decade and still growing. It definitely takes time to create a good story out of a good product(s). Happy eating!

There are other guests, I still managed to take a pix of their signage..=)

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
