The Lobby lounge at The Crimson Hotel

Pastry Chase! ❤

We all love pastries. It makes us full in itself. And not all restaurants have a complete line of our favorite pastry unless we go to Specialty pastry shops. Normally, we make do of the limited choices after a full meal. The usual ones might have been cheesecakes, chocolate fudge, “tiramisu” is famous, ensaymada to mention.

Pastry corner!
While waiting for the pastries, I took this..
And this..Are they kissing?

After trying a few from Crimson hotel. We had chocolate ensaymada, Ube ensaymada, cinnamon roll topped with blueberries, crinkles and cheesecakes.

Cafe 8..
3 kinds…

We realized we had too much since there’s quite a lot to choose from and we opted to bring home some of those that we ordered.

To go!

In the vernacular, it is “takaw-mata”(a Filipino phrase used to describe a state of hunger brought about by an enticing, visually appetizing meal or dish). Courtesy of:

And we actually wanna try them all. A few visits more, and we will be able to select our favorites.

As early as now, I was able to pick the best one for me. The ube ensaymada. The toppings of it with those plethora of grated cheese was so inviting and it surprised me to find out that there’s more ube fillings too!


I guess I can consume 1 more of this. I’ve always loved ensaymada! According to my instinct, from its’ look while it was still in the shelf:

I want ube, anything with ube! ❤

with a glass cover meant to maintain its’ freshness I already knew it would taste so heavenly. Probably because ube is a favorite of mine too. Its’ double dose of happiness for me.

Had I not taken a heavy breakfast that morning I could have tried their breakfast too. Though there will always be next times right?

What even made it better is they are very affordable. The price is even lower than the pastries from predominant coffee shops that we get used to. The one that they call third wave coffee shops.

This one is topped with blueberries!

Now that I’ve tried the best ensaymada for me (and for now) just like how I favored Muhlachs’, this ensaymada from an old bakery in our hometown, the super soft from Mary grace cafe, Becky’s Kitchen, Hizon’s, etc. I am now in search of the top 10 list of the country. A challenge to benefit my blogging and eating spree as well. In fact, part of my adventure is eating and savoring them with my loved ones. Or if I went out alone, bring something for my loved-ones. What’s the use of visiting a new place without checking out what’s in store for your hungry tummy? It is appreciating the culture of each. I’d be setting aside dieting for the meantime. It is time to indulge and filling stomachs makes us full and happy like filling your soul.

The corners of that hotel didn’t just filled my tummy up, it also filled up my hungry eyes to see more forms of Arts unexpectedly.

Feed my soul..
Checked the outdoor too in anticipation.
Cobonpue created a trend in furniture design. I am not sure if this is his.

See you again Crimson!

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 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. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. 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. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, 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 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 negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, 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!(--,)
